There's nothing like something handmade, whether it's from a market or you make it yourself. Today, pretty much everything is mass produced and receiving something that someone has spent a little time on speaks volumes. Plus, these tiny rose soaps literally take about 45 minutes to make. Winner!

What you'll need:
- 2 of your favourite body soaps
- Water
- Body moisturiser
- Loose rose tea
- Moulds
- Baking paper

Optional: Essential oils

1. Shave down/cut your soap into small pieces and put them into a saucepan with a little bit of water. Simmer and stir the soap until it starts looking like mouse/melted chocolate. Mine didn't all melt, but it still worked.

2. Wipe some body moisturiser inside the moulds so once the soap sets it's easy to pop out.

3.  Add the melted soap into your moulds and decorate with the rose tea (get creative). Put the moulds in the freezer for about 10 minutes so they set quicker.

4. Pop the soap out, you might need a knife to wedge it out. Then,wrap the soap in baking paper and tie up with string or wrapping paper.

I'm not gunna lie, I haven't posted in ages. Life gets cray sometimes and other things take priority, like family, friends and yourself. 

Since my last post, I've actually had a pretty hectic life and I'm not even kidding. I won't get into details, but most of the people who are close to me will know. 

I took these blog images a while back with Adrian, we had a really nice day off; walking down Brunswick Street, sipping coffee, buying wine and looking at envelopes for our wedding invites. 
Sometimes, you need those types of days off, days when you just take things as they come.

Tomorrow, I'm heading overseas to Europe. I'll be reuniting with Rgum in Copenhagen, after one year and a few months apart! It's a little surreal that I'm actually leaving. My suitcase is sitting at the foot of my bed, empty. I think I'm the worst packer. Actually, I don't think I'm the worst, maybe the laziest. I remember the day I was leaving to go live in Sweden for a year, I packed that morning. I guess it doesn't matter when you pack, as long as you have your essentials. 

The last load of washing is on, whirling in the background and I'm in my bed, dreading the 24 hours I'll be stuck in a seated position. 

Stay up to date with my travels through my insta!

See you soon Europa.

Assortment of Suede Shoes

One thing that I love at the moment are suede shoes. It's my favourite thing to pin on my clothes/accessories boards on Pinterest, amongst other things.  Not to mention that, after a few moments of scrolling through ASOS, Urban Outfitters, The Dreslyn or Revolve Clothing, I'm finding myself searching for suede errythang.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Winter has well and truly arrived and so has autumn, so it seems. I've just noticed the leaves falling from the trees in the last couple days. The gutters and footpaths are filled with beautiful orange leaves.

I have started to become a little uninspired with my wardrobe as of late. I looked at it and realised one of two things: I can't wear jeans all winter, I just can't and I have an overwhelming amount of summer clothes

So, I took to my trusty Pinterest and searched how I could style some summer gear in a wintery way. While searching, I saw some ideas with suede skirts and remembered I owned this ah-mazing suede skirt from Boohoo.com and viola! I threw on some black opaque tights, a cream sweater and my chelsea boots and I was off! 

Now, just to see what else I could recycle into winter clothes...
