This great little business offers something for everyone, from bows to lanyards, from sparkly gems to headbands. There is literally something for every occasion.
Our friends at Little Bumble Bugs can personalise your team colours or even create a bow just for you.
They make fantastic presents and stocking fillers. They would be incredible party favours or kris kringle gifts. I even have a few stashed away in the linen cupboard for all those sneaky kids birthday parties.
Little Bumble Bugs offer boutique bows, headbands and non-slip clips in various sizes for babies to adults.

Here is another little business that I didn’t even know existed until I started this blog! Chalk. Creative Designs is owned and operated by the gorgeous Amy Keech and provides all things graphic design.
Think: wedding stationary and styling, business stationary, logos, prints, birthday boards, signs, milestones cards and birth announcements.
Chalk. Creative Designs started when Amy was on maternity leave with her first son in 2015. Two more beautiful little cherubs have come along since that with the most recent being only 3.5 weeks old!
What sets Chalk. Creative Designs apart is that she goes above and beyond for her clients. She often gets little notice for designs needing to be done and always makes sure she comes up with the goods *sleep is for the weak*
Amy is a perfectionist and always wants to have happy clients and I think you can see those results each and every time you look at one of her designs.

The best thing about Christmas isn’t the gifts or carols. It’s not Santa or lights.
It’s the simple things.
It’s the sitting around a table with your family and friends celebrating the year that was. Celebrating the love that surrounds us all. What makes that even nicer is if you crack open a bottle of something from the Stone Pine Distillery.
Owned and operated by Bev and Ian Glen (Ian is the Distiller) and located on Gormans Hill Road, Bathurst Stone Pine Distillery is a rare gem.
Bev and Ian emigrated from Scotland 12 years ago with 2 small children and their dog! They spent two years building and setting up the Distillery and have been in operation for over 10 years now!
Stone Pine Distillery is a boutique Distillery that produces premium quality hand crafted spirits and liqueurs. Their products include several types of gin including Orange Blossom and Truffle to name just a couple. They also offer citrus infused vodka and the notorious Dead Man’s Drop which is a delicious dark spiced rum.
On top of all that they also have various liqueurs including Limoncello (my fave!), honey liqueur and a brand new Cabernet Brandy Liqueur. This liqueur was pot distilled then aged for six years in a french oak barrique, prior to being married with grape juice. What this means is that it is a fruity, ruby-red liqueur that matches perfectly with your Christmas Puddin’!
Stone Pine Distillery have just released the Decade Gin. This gin celebrates their first 10 years and utilises ten botanicals to deliver a rounded, juniper-forward flavour with a subtle complexity.
It’s really important to get behind this great local business because they were the first Distillery set up in the Central West and still the only ones operating in the Bathurst/Orange area.
One of the best features is that Stone Pine Distillery always try and source their ingredients locally and love utilising Australian Native Botanicals.
They have just released their Decade Gin to celebrate their first 10 years. It utilises ten botanicals to deliver a rounded, Juniper-forward flavour with subtle complexity.
If you want to get your gorgeous mits on some Stone Pine Distillery deliciousness then you can find their products in many local bottle shops across Bathurst (Cobb and Co Cellars, the Nickerbocker Bottleshop, Bernardi’s IGA) and in Orange (Ferment, The Agrestic Grocer and the Rugby Bottleshop)
You can even find them at the Orange Christmas Farmers Markets on Saturday 8 December 2018 or the Bathurst Farmer’s Markets on Saturday 15th of December 2018.
The beaut team at Stone Pine Distillery want to make your Christmas more merry and so are giffting to one very lucky nester a bottle of Stone Pine Original Dry Gin and a bottle of the superb Cabernet Brand Liqueur. Oh yes please! I wish I could just keep these ones for me – I love me some gin!
Jennifer Stocks is one of the kindest, talented, friendliest person I know. She is an artist who takes an immense amount of pride in her work and someone who manages to capture your family’s love in a moment in time.
Jen is one of Australia’s most sought after and celebrated photographers and has won more awards than she can poke a stick at!
She prides herself on fresh, contemporary images that are honest and often breathtaking.
She captures moments in time so you can keep them for always.
Jen is a professional newborn, baby, child & family photographer servicing the Central West and surrounding areas.
Our family has had the pleasure of working with Jen on numerous occasions and she captures those pivotal moments between moments – you know the ones that I will want to relive as we all grow.
Jen offers a wide range of photography sessions to suit your needs. My favourite are the Sunset Sessions. These are casual afternoons spent capturing your family. They don’t take nearly as long as a full session but help update photos of growing children and families. Plus it’s WAY easier keeping a toddler in check for a shorter period of time!
If you have been following the blog for a while you will know that I am an absolute sucker for lipstick. I honestly believe that whacking some red on, makes every day better. You feel more confident and more powerful just with that little move.
Little did I know there was SO much more choice than just a simple red lippy from woolies.
My eyes were open by the lovely Kate Davis who is a local, independent LipSence, SeneGene Skincare and Makeup distributor.
Not only has she become my go-to for lipstick but now ALL my makeup needs/wants/demands/desires/looks.
Kate tells me one of the things that drew her to the products were the fact that they are lead free, wax free, gluten free, contain no animal by-products and aren’t tested on animals. How amazing is that?
You know what else gives Kate credit in my book? The only reason she started selling the products in the first place is because she fell so in love with them when she was using them just for personal use. I love when people just find a passion for something because it actually works for them.
Kate says she is learning more and more about proper skin care and budge proof makeup every single day, and all she wants to do is help other women feel as good about themselves as possible.
Plus, Kate is just an ordinary everyday woman who doesn’t have hours to get ready in the morning, so she just needs reliable products that make her feel a million bucks (but without a hefty price tag)
She had me hooked the moment she told me their lipsticks would last basically all day. So of course I was like “game on mole” and tested it. To my surprise it did actually last. I’m talking through 3 coffees, lunch, slobbery baby kisses and much more.
Check out KissesFromKate today because you won’t regret it (plus it makes Christmas shopping SUPER easy!)
