Well I put the question out and you answered…with gusto! It was a big fat YES to lunchbox ideas for the fast approaching school and kinder year. It was great that you did because it got me to seek inspiration beyond my usual go-to of a vegemite sandwhich and banana.

There was something different about my most recent New Year’s Eve. It wasn’t like we had some big glamorous party to go to. It wasn’t even like I anticipated that I would make it to midnight.

I don’t know about you, but I neglect my feet pretty badly throughout the cooler months. There’s no exfoliation. No buffing. No polishing. Nothing!
