FairyClose - Happy Place Terrariums

I love plants. I LOVE them. I do tend to kill them though… I don’t mean to… I swear! I found these guys at the Finders Keepers market in Sydney last weekend and Ben had to basically rip me away from them… I want. Happy Place Terrariums Terrariums are pretty simple to make, follow the instructions and you are done. However, coming up with interesting and whimsical concepts to put into them can be quite another story, and these guys…

I have been frequenting a lot of markets lately and have been lucky enough to discover many amazing artists from the land of Oz. I thought a nice way to honour them (since I can’t buy anything right now) would be to post about them! And a new category is born! Bridget Bodenham Ceramics First on the admiration list, is Bridget Bodenham Ceramics. I discovered her at the Finders Keepers market in Sydney last weekend which was held at the Australian…

Wow, what a day yesterday was… we sold our apartment! At 10am I helped our agent show a family of two young girls and their parents through my unit, and they made an offer on the spot to take it with all the furniture… I am considering that a compliment! That said… I am going to miss my kitchen!!! We are one step closer to our super secret venture now… and getting closer by the day. Now my life is…

Selling my apartment…. an emotional rollercoaster…

December 13, 2015

A few weeks ago we listed our apartment for sale in order to generate funds for our super-secret business venture. Unfortunately, the auction was yesterday and we didn’t manage to sell it, so it’s now listed as just “for sale”. It is so interesting how the property market can “warm” and “cool” throughout the year based on small decisions made by people in fancy boardrooms. Two months ago it would have been bid on like crazy! Throughout the campaign period, I knew things…

Today I spent the day in Fitzroy, Melbourne.. one of my favourite places! But the thing I have noticed about Fitzroy is that things open late. I was looking for a coffee and a snack so I wandered into Friends of the Earth Cafe and grabbed a coffee and a vegan danish things made by Crumbs Bakery and oh my god it was amazing! More information about Friends of the Earth Cafe in Collingwood can be found at happycow!…

You MUST try it out stat! As a vegan, people are constantly asking me “but what do you eat if you can’t eat dairy”…. I tell them that I can eat dairy if I…

I resigned from my job of almost 10 years the other day. Now is a time for change. I can’t go into too much detail yet… but big things are happening in mayz land at the moment. I am jumping head first into a business purchase in a different state, which means leaving my job of 10 years, selling my apartment and moving to a new city to do a completely new thing which I have never done before.…
