Is it just me or is Spring the best season of the year? The city is awash with endless blue skies, golden pops of wattle dot the skyline and fragrant star jasmine overwhelm the senses. To quote Shakespeare, 'When daisies pied and violets blue, And lady-smocks all silver white, And cuckoo buds of yellow hue, Do paint the meadows with delight'
Perhaps Spring is a good time to do something you've been putting off over the colder months...go hiking in the mountains, re-paint the wardrobe, treat yourself to a facial, read a book, do some knitting and lose 10 kilos? Quite honestly, this is my to do list and am keen to get started (not too optimistic about the weight loss though!). What's on your list?
With all things new and fresh that goes with the season, we've discovered a smart way to remove make-up as part of our nomination in the Kidspot Voices of 2014 Challenge. We were asked to review the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water with a promise it would remove make-up, cleanse, soothe the face, eyes and lips. We were quite impressed with the product and have no negatives! It doesn't dry my skin and we only needed to wipe a few times to remove heavy eye make-up. A winner in our household
Love the headband? You can knit it too! It's the best way to keep wayward hair off your face when taking off make-up. It's super easy and you can complete it in a few hours. It has cute 'love-heart' ends that tie off at the nape of the neck and the knit allows the headband to stretch slightly. I hope you like the pattern
We used 10 ply wool with 4.5 mm (US and UK size 7) needles
