{The Nest Favourites} The things we love twenty fifteen edit.

2015 was a really big year for our little nest, we welcomed our new little birdie, Coco and celebrated kid-bird’s graduation from kindy before heading to big school soon!

It has been a wonderful year filled with friendship, love and the best kind of sleepless nights.

Here are a few of our favourite things from 2015:

Stink it

The Glasshouse Bordeaux vanilla noir diffuser is a welcome addition to our home this year. Offering small hints of vanilla, dark chocolate and hazelnut it smells delicious. 500ml_Bordeaux_05_grande

You can grab your Glasshouse product online or from Sassy My Style.

We love it because it envelops our nest with touches of velvety reds from the vineyards of south-west France, it has notes of refreshing vanilla, dark chocolate and rich hazelnut. Each time I walk past it I feel like I am in an expensive boutique! Plus, it hides the stink of baby poo and regurgitated milk stink that seems to permeate our home.

Run it

I am loving myself sick in my new pumped up kicks. My new loves are the Asics Gel-Nimbus 17 NYC and I got them from The Athletes Foot

They are bouncy and comfy and totes rad.asics shoe

Plus they tick all the boxes with support, flexibility and general durability.

Sleep it

Early in 2015 we purchased two of the Polly Beds from our friends at Incy Interiors for our toddler-bird and our kid-bird. They share a room and they have been brilliant.

Not only are the Polly Beds whimsical and coloured like lollypops they are sturdy and comfy. We have had adults who stay in the beds comment on how wonderful they are.

What makes the Polly Beds even better is the fact that are adjustable and are quite high. This means that I am able to utilise the storage space beneath them. We have stored all old clothes as well as the barbies, Sylvanian Families and dress-ups underneath. Plus one of my mates did the ultimate hack and used an IKEA bookcase on its side for storage straight under the bed. GENIUS.

Plus they look totally amaze.

Wear it

One splurge this year that I am completely loving HARD are my Celine Shadow Sunglassesceline

Whilst not the darkest lenses in my collection that just ooze modern cool. Each time I put them on I instantly feel a smidge bit hip.

Wrap it

The bestest most greatest thing I have ever discovered during my parenting journey are the Love To Dream – Wrap Me Ups.love to dream

They are without a doubt the best investment we have made. We have used these little miracle workers with all three of the little pink dragons and they have ensured many dreams from the littlest ones.

They are safe, help prevent SIDS and allow your little bambino to relax in a natural position.

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

Light it

Being on trend can be expensive but our latest find from Kmart is the complete opposite.

The Copper and Wood Lamp is a steal at only $20 and is bang on trend.lamp

It is adjustable and fits beautifully on the side corner of my mess desk.

Cook it

Admittedly I am not the world’s best cook and by best cook I mean I once burned steamed vegetables so bad that they near caught on fire. Having said that, since having my Thermomix I am a bloody champ in the kitchen. I blitz and mince and puree like a kween!

It is a pretty exxy purchase price but I use it A WHOLE LOAD. Even just the ability to make spag-bog on Thursday after swimming lessons but before basketball in 15 minutes is worth it for me. I can add a multitude of vegies and the little birdies don’t even know!

thermo

The best feature for our little nest has without a doubt been the ability to make baby food. No longer do we buy baby food we simply add whatever we are eating to thermorelda and BAM SHAZAM she has dinner. We have not purchased pre-made baby food at all this time around and I certainly am loving that in the hip-pocket.

Work it

I got given a FitBit Charge HR and I love it.

The best bit about having one is that it helps keep you on track. I find that little bit of motivation when you are able to see how much you have moved during the day is brilliant. fitbit

Plus it tells the time, your heart rate and a whole bunch of other important stuff.

Having said that, the actual best part about the FitBit Charge HR is the fact that it tracks your sleep cycle. Sounds so not exciting but it is fantastic when the the hubby-bird says things like “Ah, the baby-bird slept well last night didn’t she” and without saying a word I simply show him my sleep graph and how many times his magical sleeping baby actually woke and needed attention.

Love it

The brilliant Chi Khi kidswear line launched this year and our little birdie has worn her Chi Khi messy dot romper and beanie more than anything else in her wardrobe.

chi khi

So, she has grown a smidgen since this was taken and by a smidgen I mean like 10 kilos.

It is fabulous from a mama point of view because it has a zipper that undoes from the bottom which make early morning changes easy and now that she is getting around it has sensational protection for her little knees.

I just wish they made these in big human size.

So what are you faves this year nesters?

{Christmas Prizeapolooza} Incy Interiors are our first love
