PANTRY TOUR & ORGANISATION UPDATE ✨⁣
⁣
I spent some time today doing a mini pantry makeover, and here’s the result! Check out my stories for a pantry tour as well (I’ll save it to my pantry highlight for future reference πŸ˜‰). ⁣
⁣
The main change I made was adding extra @clickclackhouseware containers! I used their 10 piece starter set to add more easily accessible storage - l love using these containers because they have (in my opinion) the best seal on the market, fully airtight, easy to open with one hand while cooking and my gosh they look lovely 😍 ⁣
Highly recommend this ClickClack starter set if you’re looking for containers but not quite sure on sizing, that way you can use these to get started and add to it as needed πŸ‘πŸΌ ⁣
⁣
If you have any pantry related questions please pop them in the comments below so everyone can see! Have a lovely weekend β™₯️⁣

Currently lying on the couch procrastinating instead of ticking things off my to do list πŸ™ˆ I did manage to update my profile picture today though, only took me a year πŸ˜‚βœ”οΈ Some of the things I’m hoping to get done over the next two weeks include: spare room clean out, wash couch covers, full deep clean of the entire house, pantry refresh, garage clean out, weeding, organise paperwork, install laundry cupboards, install shelving to dining room.. wish me luck πŸ™ŒπŸΌ What’s on your list?

This years Christmas wrapping paper theme 😍

I recently read some Christmas waste statistics that are pretty scary! 
Did you know Australians use enough wrapping paper over the festive season to wrap the world in paper almost FOUR TIMES??! I honestly hadn’t thought about the amount of waste Christmas produces before.. So this year I am trying to cut down my Christmas waste by using recyclable wrapping paper (we already had), re-using jute string from last year/other projects, re-using the Christmas styled greenery and planning to re-use as much wrapping paper as we can salvage (probably not going to happen with any kids presents πŸ˜‚). Will also be using re-usable gift bags for smaller items. I did purchase the white ribbon pictured but plan on reusing it! 
Keep in mind when wrapping presents that cellophane, metallic and any wrapping paper with foil/glitter can’t be recycled. 
Any other waste reducing tips? Add them in the comments below to share with everyone πŸ₯°πŸŽ„

We have started making Sundays a β€œno plan day” where we mostly stay home and catch up on a weeks worth of housework πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I’m sure most of you have realised I have been super slack with Instagram lately and to be honest, not enjoying it like I once did.. There’s so much that goes into these pages behind the scenes to plan, photograph, connect and create content, it can be draining and feel like a second job. Thanks for sticking around while I find my work/life/insta balance πŸ™ˆ I’m trying to get back into it and realising why I started this page in the first place, to be inspired and share my love of interiors, organisation and (surprisingly) cleaning πŸ˜‚πŸ₯° Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend x

Bedroom refresh just in time for spring πŸƒ We only own white sheets (because let’s be honest, they’re the best πŸ˜‚) so we desperately needed some texture in our master bedroom.. so happy with how this rattan bedhead has pulled the space together 😍 Oh, and we now have a king mattress on our bed frame (instead of a queen that looked super awkward)!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Also got some black vases for a bargain off FB marketplace which I spray painted white and put a bunch of dried flowers in and LOVE! Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend ✨

I think our ensuite bathroom is the room I am most happy with in terms of styling in our house! I love this tray (that Target don’t stock anymore πŸ™„), the textured vase with lagurus grass and this gorgeous candle from @meeraboocandles which honestly smells divine! What are your bathroom styling essentials? πŸ’¦

Neutral Boho Baby Shower Styling⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ πŸƒ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am so proud of what my sister and I achieved for her baby shower! She wanted a neutral theme and no over the top decorations in terms of styling and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out!⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Here’s a few of my favourite baby shower DIY hacks if you’re planning a similar event or baby shower of your own:⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
πƒπˆπ˜ π—ͺ𝐑𝐒𝐭𝐞 𝐍𝐚𝐀𝐞𝐝 𝐒𝐭𝐲π₯𝐞 π‚πšπ€πž: We purchases two Coles chocolate mud cakes, cut the tops off and stuck them together, we then iced with home made buttercream icing and decorated 🍰 ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

These white vases are a Kmart hack (that didn’t cost much at all!) by @_ashlee_white_ (@dusanainteriors also did an amazing version of these + a Kmart mirror too!). I now want to spray paint everything white πŸ™ˆ 
The tissue box I got off eBay so I don’t have to look at ugly tissue boxes around the house (way more satisfying than you think πŸ˜‚). And the lamp I’ve had for a while.. Tap for the tags πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ If you follow my stories you would know I didn’t want to post this photo.. I spent 3+ hours editing and re-editing it because I wasn’t happy with how it was looking on my feed. On top of that, the Snapseed app I use to edit my photos has an error and wasn’t saving the photo with the correct edits which was super frustrating after spending so much time on it. I then had to screenshot the photo edits to post this photo so excuse the bad quality. 
Side note: I’M SO CLOSE TO 5K FOLLOWERS AND I’M SO EXCITED!! βœ¨πŸ™ˆ

If you have followed me since I started this page you would remember this utensil drawer.. and yep, this is a recent photo! The white is still white (okay so there may be a little extra maintenance to keep them so white but it doesn’t bother me) and everything goes back in its place after it has been used. Having organised (and not cluttered) kitchen drawers honestly makes cooking (and life) so much easier πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
