We heart Trespass Mag!

As you know one of my obsessions is magazines.

Usually I plonk myself down with a cuppa (or a glass of bubbles), get the kids occupied so I can savour a few moments to indulge in the 
latest issue of my fave mag.
I dont think Natalie will mind if I admit for her that she too is obsessed with magazines!
Between the two of us we have quite a collection.
There are piles of Elle Decoration UK, Inside Out, Country Living US, Home Beautiful, Living etc, House Beautiful US, Country Home UK.

Once we have salivated over all those divine houses featured, we then wipe the drool off the cover and play swapsies with our latest editions.

Over the past 6 months we have discovered online magazines.
These are fantastic!
They give us a quick fix while we wait for the hard copy mags to arrive each month!

Now I sit at the computer and have another distraction by virtually flipping through these pages!
Hey I better get some work done!

Trespass Mag is one of our new faves.
It's Australian, and its full of really cool articles on fashion , travel, plus we can get a bit cultural as well.

Just in time for Valentines Day, Trespass Mag is having a 
cupcake wrapper giveaway.
If you want to enter - be quick!

Good luck!

Well today I am going to share a little secret that I actually find hard to admit.
Especially saying it aloud and admitting to myself, let alone sharing it on our blog for all and sundry to read.

My name is Kathy and I am obsessive.

There I said it.

I am obsessive about a few things.
I will only share a couple, as the more I list, the more I might actually realise I have a slight problem...eeekk!





This obsession started when I was young.
I distinctly remember going to the State Bank of Victoria with Mum and loving the perfume the teller was wearing.
As I was at High School & Uni I loved Oscar de la Renta, Anais Anais, Opium, and course any Estee perfume like Beautiful or even White Linen.
Then I moved onto the heavy duty ones like Van Cleef & Arpels First, YSL Paris and Dior's Poison (so 80's!).
My girlfriends even wrote about this obsession in my 21st speech.
Then there was the horrendous Bali perfume experience.
Dad bought me back a bottle of 'Opium'.
Goodness knows what they put in that bottle, but I am sure it would curled a cats' whiskers!
Then came the Calvin era; Eternity, CK One.
Sometimes depending on the weather I sometimes flick back to some old faves for a fleeting dalliance;
Donna Karan Cashmere Mist, Perscriptives Calyx, Chanel Coco.
On my wedding day I wore the first and original fave Oscar de la Renta. 
Such a classic.
When I was pregnant with my 1st daughter I had to wear Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.  Can't stand it now!

Who knows why I love them so much.
But thank goodness for Strawberry Net and Ebay to get them so much cheaper!
I only ever wear one at a time and usually I become attached to a scent for over 12 months, but I still love lining them all up on my dressing table.
My 2nd daughter, who is nearly 4, seems to have taken on this obsession as she finds old, half empty bottles and douses herself, then carries them around in her little handbag!
My fave right now is Chanel No.5 Eau Premiere.
Love it!
Natalie's fave is Lolita Lempicka.

So here is a good segue....
Valentines Day is just around the corner.
And what better to get for V-Day that a huge bottle of your fave perfume and of course some cupcakes with our cute Lovebirds wrappers!
Forget the chocolate...go the cupcake!

PS: These Swedish loveheart cookies were from Ikea at Christmas.
I think they actually say Merry Christmas, but I thought they were too cute and had to use them!

Our gorgeous new Lovebirds wrappers are available from today!
They do look stunning with our current range of 
pink and red wrappers too.
$14.95 for a pack of 12.
In pink and red only.
