Hut and Manor Candles

Always on the lookout for a little light in my life - new candles to burn in my home - I have found the most beautiful range by Hut and Manor.

Made in Australia from soy wax, the candles come in 3 scents – Rose and Coconut, Violet and Lime and Frankincense and Myrrh. The packaging is simple, sophisticated and stylish and the glass votive is as sexy and subtle as the fragrance they burn. Designer Alex Conrick created the Hut and Manor line with the aim of “filling your home with happiness, laughter and love, with family and friends”. Available online soon from Available now at Appartamento 57 in Woollahra, Sydney.

What a Difference a Year Makes

When I first started The Farmer Wears Prada a little over a year ago, I was not working - at least not for money - and I was needing my own creative and emotional outlet as I was struggling to adjust to giving up my career in Fashion Retail, being a new mum and living with my family on a farm. For anyone following my blog this past year I say a big THANKYOU! It has served as some much needed therapy and has been something I could call my own. If I have shared anything that has provided some inspiration or amusement or encouragement or even plain old interest, I am over the moon. It has helped me through some dark days and some great ones.

My aim when I began was to blog something new each week. For the past 8 months I have been working on a new business - an online jewellery store, which is about to launch any day. As I have been juggling running a business from home, together with managing a household, family and farm, my time to devote to myself and my blog has been less and less. I am excited to be working again – I realize that I am much happier as a woman/mother/partner/friend/family member when I am a professional girl as well. I am eager to get back to my blog regularly this next year, as I embark on another life chapter with my eboutique. Watch this space.

Cool and covetable jewellery from all over the globe. Launches August 2013.
