{This is life} One very selfless local is doing to her bit to help others

Giving the gift of a child to another is an amazingly selfless gift.

Local lady Laura Hannan has shared her story today in Central Western Daily and it is pretty remarkable. photo orange donor

You can find her story here -> Why One Orange Mum Donates Her Eggs

Laura is trying to raise awareness and encourage more local woman to consider donating their eggs to help others. It is pretty amazing to possess that amount of generosity.

Thank you Laura for being brave enough to give another sista a chance at a family.

{Keep Calm and Blog On} The Girl Has Sparke visited our Millthorpe

The Girl Has Sparke is our latest blog crush.

Written superbly from a lovely twenty-something Canberrarian named Megan it is classy and hilarious and simply good reading.

Our favourite article so far is this one -> Foodies Guide to Weekend in Millthorpe. Admittedly, we might be a little bit biased due to her obvious love of Millthorpe which is situated in our own backyard, but she is brilliant in her review of a perfect little weekend location.

{Locally Found} Tribe of Two that’s who

We LOVE products that are versatile, natural and super pretty. This gorgeous Nursing Scarf from Tribe of Two is just that!

The scarf is made from 100% natural linen which essentially means it is warm enough for the cooler months, but still breathes beautifully so you and your baby-bird are still comfortable.

Nursing scarf

The design is so clever that you can wear it as a scarf day-to-day but when your little one needs a feed you simply pop the neck hole over your head and then you have modesty protection for that feeding time.

Simply brilliant design.

As if we don’t already love this enough, it is made locally by a very talented designer in Orange, NSW! Wow!

You can get your own at Tribe of Two

Happy shopping (and comfortable breast-feeding) Nesters!
