Fathers Day Giveaway – Marie O’Neill Pop Portrait

This is a giveaway that has been brewing for over a year now and I am so excited to be able to offer it to you! In May last year I saw this post from BabyMac closely followed by this post from Mrs Woog at Woogsworld. Having seen online photos of both of them across the years I could really appreciate how Marie from Marie O’Neill Design & Illustrations absolutely nailed the pop art similarities of all the family members. Well, not Mr Woog because NOONE has ever seen him, but the rest were spot on! I emailed her...

Jamberry Giveaway

Helping out a fellow LEO WAG (Police Wife) with this post. I was sent a sheet of Jamberry Wraps to try from my mate before we moved house and I thought, this will be easy, you just need some heat in the form of a hairdryer and presto, instant prettiness for weeks on end in less than 15 minutes; PERFECT for moving house when your polishes and remover will be “in a box” somewhere. But then I realised that my hairdryer is not at the transit house where we are staying and that I wouldnt be able to show you...

Practically Perfect (with a giveaway)

I remember talking to Mr Point Five a few years ago about the pressure I felt to be a better housewife and how I constantly felt guilty about not keeping up with “the Jones'”. Who are you getting pressure from, he asked? Well, I said, I feel like I let you down that stuff doesn’t get done around the house when you are at work. I feel bad that some days all I manage to achieve is a sinkful of dishes. I worry that you think I am lazy or not as good as the other wives. So you...

Airwick Candles – Giveaway

Disclaimer – I was approached by Airwick to do a post about their lovely new range of candles, the Multicolour Silhouette and the Jar Candle. I was sent three candles, all divine which is why I said yes,  and paid $ for my time; not my usual fee but I  am a sucker for scented candles and you can NEVER have enough smelly pretties, can you?  Also with all of the stinkbugs in our house, power blackouts over summer and the fact that I don’t live anywhere NEAR a shop to buy them myself,  I was actually stoked with the invite....

Uberkate Cuff – Giveaway

I have to say even though I have a tendency to pull the total piss out of anything that is “trendy” or a “must have” item such as mason jars used as drinking jars with stripy paper straws, pineapple mantle displays and matching wall decals, not to mention the faux deer head mounted on walls, there is ONE thing that a lot of the uber successful bloggers have that I have been secretly jealous of. A piece of Uberkate Jewellery. I would watch my Facebook news feed pop up with random selfies with what was obviously a design by Uberkate...

Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove – Giveaway

When I saw that all the boys favourite Disney Characters were being brought to life, and on ICE no less, I immediately hopped online to check out times and ticket prices.

Totally random timing, the lovely people at Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove had offered me complimentary Tickets for my Family. Seriously – how lucky are our boys??
