{Locally Found} Succulent Love

Recently I was invited to my very first succulent workshop with the beautiful Renelle at Pop-Up Succulent Shop to say I had a brilliant afternoon would be such an understatement.

1

Upon arriving you are met with a glass of bubbles and a delicious cheese & fruit platter (she won me over right there!). Before long I forgot I was in a class and it felt much more like I was in my friend’s lounge room having a few drinks and learning some new things about gardening.

2

Renelle was patient and explained perfectly what we had to do. She answered ALL my probably ridiculous questions and even helped me when I realised things for my kokedama were not quite going according to plan!

My mum came with me and quickly we made friends with the other people at the workshop, that’s the thing you see it was relaxed and friendly. There were no strangers just friends we were yet to meet.  4

Renelle supplies everything you need to make two kokedamas and she even gives some good hints on how to wrap other plants you buy to make great gifts or house plants.

I am far from a good gardener but bloody hell I was proud when I came home and showed the hubs and kids what I had made. I now very proudly have two kokedamas in my kitchen and each and every time I look at them I get all warm and fuzzy and remember the great afternoon I had.

Make sure you grab a pal and check out one of the workshops offered by Renelle at  Pop-Up Succulent Shop. She holds a range of workshops including kokedamas, wreath and general potting classes.

You can also have a chat to Renelle at many markets and events she attends around our area.

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} Christmas memories with Aimee

So as we sit here at the end of another year, time just seems to be escaping quicker then ever before. It reminds me just how important capturing these moments are. 20882822_1672219762830483_8347622416954975669_n

That’s where my gorgeous friend Aimee Cook steps in.

Aimee Cook Photography is located in Bathurst and is one of the leading family and newborn photographers in the area. What I love most about Aimee is that she isn’t afraid to get down on your little one’s level to make them laugh, she is a perfectionist so won’t stop until she has that perfect photo. 24899795_1776993229019802_2244478129892666559_n

The best thing about Aimee is that she has this innate ability to capture the in-between moments. You won’t end up with a bunch of staged photos she instead celebrates the giggles and tickles, and quiet, less obvious love.

Offering everything from outdoor family photo shoots to small intimate moments being captured in her purpose-built studio she can provide your family with the most precious gift of all, eternal memories. 23755623_1757379614314497_3329679038137059139_n

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} Macquarie Spoils this year

There are a few local businesses that have been around since the beginning of the blog and have always been involved and supportive. One of the biggest supporters I have had is Karla and the beautiful team from Macquarie Medi Spa.IMG_2219

Macquarie Medi Spa are the queens at pampering. I cannot tell you how many times I come out of one of their spas feelings a million bucks better than when I walked in.

What I love most is that they are really informative without being pushy. They have their fingers on the pulse of the latest trends and movements in beauty and bring that to our local area in an approachable and affordable way.

Macquarie Medi Spa have won a bunch of awards including the very prestigious Oceania Spa Manager in 2016. They have also been named Bathurst Business of the Year twice and been a nominee of the World Luxury Spa Awards.  ST-about-2

Macquarie Medi Spa is your local beauty spa with two beautiful locations in Bathurst and in Orange. The Orange spa even offers the very fun LipLab where you can create your own personalised lipstick and foundation. I have done this a couple of times and it is the best way to spend some time with your favourite girls.

One of the first services offered by  Macquarie Medi Spa is their Laser Hair removal, it means far less hair and that is certainly a winner in my books (just ask my lip!). These machines are massively expensive but  Macquarie Medi Spa wants the best for their clients so is even bringing another one to Orange! ST-Facial-treatments

If you want to feel like the most beautiful version of yourself make sure you give Karla and the girls at Macquarie Medi Spa a call today:
