OSIS +

Having fine hair can be a real pain when you want to give some height and boofiness to your do.  So when my hairdresser suggested Osis hair dust I was very intrigued... how had I never heard of this product before?  The easiest way to explain it is that it's like talcum powder which you shake ever so lightly into your hair.  It creates texture and a matt finish rather than a shine.  Pricey at the hairdresser but you can grab this on strawberrynet too.

Ring of silver

I have spent the last 8 weeks at a fantastic contemporary jewellery course at a place called Workshop 6 based in Kingsland, Auckland.  I've always wanted to learn how to make proper silver jewellery so this course definitely gave me the skills to do this and I came away with something I'm quite proud of.

Bird in a Bunnysuit

I've been coming across these great little gift cards in a few shops recently as well as craft markets, I thought they were cute and quirky and would be lovely in a frame so I got in touch with Bayley Collins the designer and requested a customised print size especially for a new frame I had.  The print I chose is called 'Hoo.. me?'  Her website is www.birdinabunnysuit.co.nz
