Another week down, I cannot believe it’s May! Here are some small things bringing me joy this week.
#1 5-sies at my family home
I have been loving the retirement life and enjoying our ‘5-sies’ which basically means we open a bottle of wine and put out some yummy snacks like these Almond Thins which are so easy to make!
#2 Cutest non-paper towels
How clever are these eco-friendly unpaper towels! Made by a husband and wife in Toowoomba, QLD. I will be purchasing the lemon ones ASAP.
#3 No-makeup makeup
I was so disappointed with Smashbox discontinued their matte cream eyeshadows. I used their Sand colour every day. Cue me searching on eBay for any stock! But this week at Mecca I found they are BACK baby, just with new packaging. I couldn’t be happier. I wear the shade ‘Sepia‘ every. single. day.
#4 May = Mother’s Day
The countdown really is on, so I am busy getting cards and gifts away in the post. Don’t forget to check out my Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
#5 Check on your friends
Speaking of Mother’s Day, I am so lucky to have my Mum with me but I know it’s not the case for everyone, including some of my closest friends. This time of the year can be especially difficult for them so, remember to check in on them. The instagram page @motherlessdaughtersau is a wonderful resource and support page that I have discovered which gives some insight into how they may be feeling during this time.
