Twice a year the coolest locally made products come together for one brilliant and fun day.

The Millthorpe Markets are here again!milthorpe

This Sunday 6 April 2014 the showground at Millthorpe transforms into a shopping addicts heaven.

Showcasing so many different stallholders it really is worth the trip!

Plus it is a lovely Sunday drive in the country (that actually only takes like 25 minutes from Bathurst so if the baby-birdies are being brats its not that far!!).

Make sure you stop and say hi to a friend of The Central Nest, the gorgeous Laura from The Button Jar.

{Girl Crush Tuesday} The fascinating Carrie

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance.  Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.

line4She is incredibly smart, well articulated and witty. She is glamorous and generous.

Carrie Bickmore is honestly one of our favourite Australian people. She has showed that hard work and perseverance can pay off and even land you the job of presenting one of Australia’s most informative and entertaining television shows, The Project.

Carrie also handles the gig of presenting ‘So you think you can dance Australia’ with class, finesse and style.

In her private life she has experienced the hardest of times that could ever be expected of a person and has come through shining the other side.

Not only is she a superstar in her career but she manages to balance the role of mother to her son, Oliver.

Thank you to the gorgeous Carrie for giving my little girls someone to look up to.
