Frockin' up: New Kip & Co AW17 Pjs

The girls and I popped into Olivia's Closet on the weekend and had a sneak peak at the new Kip & Co AW17 collection. I stumbled across their pjs this time last year and haven't looked back. Their pjs are so comfortable and wash well time after time. Lulu's are now getting a little short on her so luckily there is a new collection to get her through this winter.

The new Kip & Co AW17 collection is available for pre-order at Olivia's Closet from today! Can we talk for just a second about how nice it is to have a shop in town to go to and actually touch, feel and size up kids clothes that we'd otherwise only see on the internets? Yep, it's great.

Here are our picks:

There are also beautiful wraps for babies and these gorgeous playmate - If only Zelda stayed still for more than a second!


Head into Olivia's Closet and order your pick today. The Kip & Co AW17 Collection will be in store late March.

5 Best Hand Creams for Winter

Winter does a number on my skin, especially my hands. It's cold for about 3.5 seconds before my hands start feeling as rough as a labourers. With an infant in the house, the number of times you wash your hands in a single day increases exponentially. If I don't put on hand cream every time I wash my hands, they end up cracking. I kid you not, the skin on my right index finger split open a few weeks ago! It was like a paper cut but there was no paper to be seen. I fixed the split by applying

nipple cream

over a number of days. But when I am not in crisis management mode I love the following hand creams:


Thankyou Hand Cream

| This cream smells a little like marshmallows & has an excellent price point


Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream: Persian Rose & Argan Extract

| Again a flowery, marshmallowy smell. All girly like.


Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm

 | this cream has a relaxing smell to it. Breathing it in just makes you breath out all the bad stuff.


Lush Helping Hands

 | thick goodness in a small tub.


Crabtree & Evelyn's Gardners

 | this cream is all business. It works.

Autumn colours

These photos popped up a few weeks ago on the photo inset in my twitter page. I had tweeted links to all these photos separately but when seen together they make the most perfect autumn colour mood board.

Do you experience autumn where you live? We don't really get autumn here in Alice Springs but it is nice to dream. My most favourite autumn memory is driving to uni along Frome Street in Adelaide under the canopy of trees with leaves changing colour. Just beautiful!
