Anyone tried the Scout nail varnish? It has none of the nasties found in the regular brands and is cruelty free. (I saw a video clip of rabbits being contained for this purpose and it was horrible.) This pretty pink came home with me last week and I really liked how it went on. It has chipped quite quickly but I didn’t use a clear top coat and I put two coats on in a real rush. I’ll definitely buy more....the colour range is gorgeous! And here we have “day 3” for Xmas gift ideas. Buy one wooden bangle from my online store, and add a cute nail varnish, or lip balm, or whatever. Bangles $25 and $35 for the wider style. Link to my shop in profile 👆🏼

One of the images I created for @makegivelive recently. These cotton cloths, designed as face cloths could be used in the kitchen too. One has a star design in the pattern. Perfect for this time of year! I switched to hand knitted face and dish cloths last Summer and far prefer their softness and durability. See their website for details. A fab biz to support doing great things in our community

Been thinking I need to start a separate Insta handle for my online shop. Have chatted to a couple of people and it seems to make sense. How do you guys with more than one account feel about the extra time/energy it takes? And do you not worry about posting so frequently? Any feedback so appreciated x smallbizlife decisions

A moody shot this morning with a few of my favourite old and slightly battered dishes. I love the Japanese term wabi-sabi, seeing the beauty in imperfection. It’s this week’s theme on @creativelysquared with @mudbird_ceramics and I couldn’t miss entering this week! cs_wabisabi

Which closest resembles the contents of your bag? . These zippered clutches are available in very limited numbers online (👆🏼link above) ✔️organic cotton ✔️NZ made ✔️fully lined in contrasting fabric Because they are made using off-cuts from cushions, there are very few available so if you like what you see, don’t muck around! . Made by @pippottagedesigns, a very cool sustainably minded biz in Nelson. Read more on my website....

Just wanting to shout out 👋🏻 to my usual Insta buddies...you’ll know who you are. I’ve not been scrolling the squares as much...been more than a little consumed here with getting product to my site. It’s no quick process (for me anyway) and a juggle around my tutoring job, but I promise I’m not moaning! I’ve been missing @creativelysquared too 🤦🏼‍♀️ and am looking forward to a bit more balance after this week. How’s everyone else managing in the ole work/life balance? no slowliving here

Who likes a bit of fringing? . . Both options available in very limited quantities tomorrow. I’ll be able to offer these as made-to-order though, so if you fancy new cushions for the warmer weather in whatever size, with or without fringing, then let me know! ➕This watery chambray blue➕a soft sage green➕the ochre you can peek in the background. More info to come...

Love it when the cards and board games get brought out in the school hols. There always seems to be one that gets played over and over. These holidays it’s Cranium. Funny cos we’ve had it for years and played it a few times with adults but it’s never been a favourite. Now suddenly my girls and their friends are old enough for it and it’s been fun! (For any Cranium fans, I’m hopeless at Data Head questions...just saying....but quite like having to spell backwards 😂) And then there’s cards...always popular. . . . Floor cushions now available online. And more linen cushions hopefully being loaded this weekend! And a gorgeous linen throw...it’s amazing. www.thecoastalcabin.com

This old Indian cabinet needs TLC. It was nearly black when I bought it but it’s faded to this dairy milk choc colour....mmmmmn ☹️ It’s Teak and I love the colour of natural Teak. Anyone had experience in stripping stain from carved furniture? I’m guessing it can be dipped and then I’d be keen to oil it. Any help from those who have done this welcome!

My new online shop has been live 5 days now 🙌🏼 Been ironing out a few glitches with the site and added in a ‘pick up’ option to avoid the shipping cost. So, Hibiscus Coast locals, know that you never have to pay for shipping. I have an oversized 📪 so most items will fit. For those that don’t I’ll deliver to you (if you live on the Peninsula...) Happy Saturday everyone

Looking forward to a bit more work/life balance having hit 'go live' on my online store. (Kidding myself perhaps but fingers ✖️) There's a promo going on over on my Facebook page so take a look and be in the draw to win a beautiful organic cotton towel from Ottoloom. You'll find the link to The Coastal Cabin in my bio 👆🏼 Have changed my Facebook name to my shop name but reckon I'll keep my Instagram handle the same. Confusing, or not really?
