{Life Hack Friday} Dutch Braid Ponytail

I LOVE good hair. Especially good hair that looks complicated, but in reality isn’t too much harder than identifying which Kardashian likes a good camera angle.

We stumbled across this fabulous little how-to from the gorgeous team at Barefoot Blonde dutch11

Twist. Plait. Tie. Done!

{The Weekly Nest} March week 2 in review

So in review of this week, we start with some good news, the hubby-bird and I survived operation ‘construct-Ikea-furniture’ without any blood being drawn, any serious threats of divorce or deadly insults. We survived and I am diggin’ the organisation that is finally starting to happen in our nest.

It is funny during pregnancy how the little nesting vibe kicks in. All of a sudden I am on a rampage chucking stuff out, sending this to Vinnies and Martha Stewarting the shit out the place. The hubby-bird even joked that perhaps he should continue to knock me up every couple of years to maintain the world’s biggest spring clean. He is romantic like that.

In other ‘I-am-growing-a-massive-alien-in-my-belly-news’ my feet and ankles are still engorged. Now even my cankles have cankles AND what appear to fat rolls.

The toddler-bird kindly bought it to my attention yesterday that my toes look like mini-frankfurts now.  Such a kind kid that one. Really made my day hearing that fantastic observation from her.

In food news, this week one of our Nesters submitted a recipe for the most delicious Quinoa, roasted tomato, asparagus and goat’s cheese tart. We love when nesters get involved so if you have a family favourite that you would love to share please contact us! Thanks to Kellie for sharing this tart, it is healthy, delicious and a hit with the little birdies!

Another important thing we discovered this week was the Best Metaphor that ever been made in the world. It relates to consent and it is so important that the message be spread far and wide. A cup of tea is all it takes to understand when consent exists and when it does not. What you need to do is save it and read it to your little girls in the future. You need to show your little boys. You need to make sure this message is everywhere. I just honestly cannot believe that it took someone this long to come up with it. tea

One of our most popular posts this week was some advice from our favourite kindergarten teacher, Miss Mac. She gave us some information on How to Settle In, Make Nice and Not Piss Off Your School. Starting school can be daunting but thanks to advice from Miss Mac you can help your child adjust quickly.

In other potentially boring news for some of you, we re-branded the blog this week. We hope you like it! After looking at exactly one bazillion twelve hundred million ideas we settled on the girly, lovely flowers. We just love it. It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy in all the nice places. Plus, we have finally be able to order some business cards, so look out world! CentralNestBlogNew
