a few of my favourite things {jan 2012}



I thought I'd better quickly sneak in a little favourites list as we are fast approaching the end of January! Ekk, where did that go? I've come across so many great and inspiring things this past month and am constantly blown away by all the amazing people creating great things out there. Love it.

* a small way we can all contribute to the fight against the ridiculous NZ Food Bill.
* love this song.
* NZ summer time, love it.
* gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free gingerbread cupcakes, oh my!
* started watching this documentary. An interesting insight into Vietnamese settlement in Australia.
* the whole world needs to watch this.
* organic pest control remedies. (Via Sistahood. by freddy chur)
* LOVE this kid.
* Tiki Taane wearing Brother Bens Trash Footwear!
* great idea.
* this photo from the mad storm in Perth recently.
* 75 things you can compost, but thought you couldn't
* finally found a natural deodorant that stands up in 40 C (104 F) heat! Phew.
* great article.
* modern wheat isn't really wheat at all.
* I could listen to this woman everyday, and pretty much do.


That photo above was taken on one of our recent trips to the beach down south. How cool is that road name?! Try saying that one quickly... it even beats Ngaruawahia by three letters!

  2. You might also like to point people to http://facebook.com/NZFoodBill that Johanna Knox started, and which I'm supporting her with. There's a new video on there, from Tuesday night.

  4. Doesn't the 'modern wheat' make you angry? I wish we could all sue Monsanto for making us sick. LOVE your other things by the way, am inspired by the ginger cupcakes .....

  6. P.S Sorry if any of you have been having trouble trying to comment on here lately. Apparently blogger has been having some issues since they made changes a week or so ago. Fingers crossed they sort it soon.

  7. Interesting compost ideas, I want to know if I can compost those new starch based plastic bags that feel slippery, have you heard anything about those?

    1. Really Lou? I don't like all of her stuff, but I've always liked her... haven't I? I like this song of hers ;-)

  10. I bought and tried the deodorant and it was awful :( I have to add water to the top every time or it won't rub, but even then it doesn't come rub off onto my skin...so weird. Thanks for the idea anyhow, Nicole'

    1. That is weird, I've got two different crystal deodorants on the go and haven't had any problems like that? I'd flick a email to the maker or supplier. I've only had great results myself.
