{The Nest Loves} 12 things I couldn’t live without – Spring 16 Edit

These are a few of my favourite things as we head into Spring 2016.

  1. Ronda Rousey – My Fight Your Fightrousey-book

This book has been a great companion of mine as we pop through into Spring. An easy reading, yet surprisingly inspirational read about one of the fiercest woman in the world. You can grab a copy from Booktopia.

2. Celine Shadow Sunglasses celine

Love is these sunglasses. They are fantastic this time of the year as they are not too dark unlike a few of my other pairs. Definitely an investment worth having.

3. Thermomix thermo

Once the spring fruit starts sprouting I love using the thermo to make jams and marmalades. Waste not want not and all that.

4. CR Mug cr-mug

Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Spring, summer, winter, autumn I need it for them all. Get yours from Country Road.

5. Samsung S7 Edge s7

I am never far from my phone it is my camera, my watch, my distraction, my calendar and above all it’s just mine.

6. ViraproX Lip Care viraprox

I tried this recently as a sample and since then have become a solid convert. It moisturises without being sticky and helps keep away bloody pesky cold sores. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

7. Fresh Flowersflowers

These really are the simplest way to make your days happier. I love nothing more than spying a bunch of brightly coloured petals standing tall in the middle of the dining table. If you can’t be outside, bring the outside in! We loves these gorgeous posies from Vanessa Pringle Floral Designs

8. Bad sheets give me the shits cool-gret

Waking up in good sheets makes for better days. Trust me on that. Good sheets are worth their weight (x a bazillion) in gold. I am currently lusting after the cool grey linen sheets from the team at  InBed

9. Australian House & Garden house

My not so secret indulgence is losing myself in the beautifully curated pages of this magazine with a cup of tea and a strict do not disturb mummy policy for an hour at a time. I always come away afterwards feeling inspired and happy.

10. Clinique Moisture Surge Intense cream clinique

Makes your face prettier and stuff. Especially after all the artificial heating in winter.

11. Tiffany & Co Coin Purse coin-purse

I was given this beautiful little gift a few years ago by some gorgeous girlfriends of mine. I love pulling it out about this time every year because it fits so perfectly in my little handbag that can just be swung over my shoulder in a summer dress. Easy Breezy.

12. My Kikki-K Plannerkikki-k

This is literally the only thing that keeps my days ticking over and me not crumbling into a sad sack of shakiness in the corner. All my information in one stop. Job Done. Get yours from Kikki-k today.

What are your faves?

{The Nest Buys} Personalised to a tea

I love simple, clever ideas.

These personalised mugs from SuperCaliPrint would make a great gift to someone special (or simply to yourself!)

How brilliant would these be in the kitchen at work? Do you think my tea would just magically appear?
