Powder Puff Girls

The other day, I went to my local Japanese style $2.80 store to buy some cheap face powder puffs. I was impressed by a cute one which was decorated with a rose, a ribbon bow and a frilly edge (it reminded me somewhat of Majorlica Majorca's Puff de Cheek puffs, only even more extravagant). However, it did not convince me that it was worth $2.80. I ended up purchasing a couple of packs of boring plain powder puffs. I took them home, looked in my craft box and thought 'oh, I may as well make this cute!' Voila! here is the result (it's hardly a tutorial; it's more a 'DIY rather than buy' project that may take two minutes of your time and give you an added sense of achievement.)

Finding places I knew before

Over the past weekend, I visited Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens with my sisters. The area is a lovely foresty area a little ways out of Adelaide. The day began cloudy, grey and somewhat dreary. Somewhere along the way, it also became foggy too, then windy, and to top it all off, in the middle of our journey in the middle of the gardens, the weather ended up wet. Luckily, we were slightly prepared and brought along an umbrella each and food for a picnic in the car.
