Decorate Your Bakes With Hello Pretty

I think the best part of baking, besides eating the treats you made, is the decorating. I have always loved baking and I get super excited when it’s time to pipe the icing on and decorate the cupcakes or whatever I made with sweets, chocolate or toppers. It’s such a fun and creative project for those rainy, cold weekends when you can’t go outside or to keep the kids busy during the school holidays. There are some great baking aids and decorations available on Hello Pretty.

These heart cake toppers from the Smart Resources Designs store are beautiful and will show off the love you have put into your cakes. The rose drops from the Lollipop League will look beautiful on those pink cupcakes you made. How cute are these fondant turtles from Hand made in Stillbay? They would be perfect on cupcakes for a kid’s party. The happy birthday cake topper from the Mocho Loco Store is ideal for a friend’s birthday cake. For some unique cookies, I love these cookie cutters from I love this and that.

Doesn’t this make you feel like baking now?

The Perfect Mug For Those Cold Winter Days

With winter fast approaching, I know I’ll be drinking a lot more tea, cappuccinos and of course hot chocolate. I’ve always had a favourite mug, which only I’m allowed to drink from, that’s been with me for years. To be honest it’s actually a really ugly mug. It’s the perfect size, but it’s a strange brown colour and chipped. Now that I think of it, it has quite a weird shape too. I’m sure many of you can relate; whether it’s at work or home, that special mug which you hide in the back of the cupboard is yours and yours alone.

So, I think it’s time for a new mug. I love these options available on Hello Pretty; the vixen mug from Sugar & Vice is foxy and their work like a boss mug, which will start your day off well, is great. The I am a mother mug from Cronje Design Co, is perfect for all the mothers out there. I love the detail on this angel wing mug from Pink Orange Designs. We all need some comfort every now and then, so the hug in a mug from Flat White Concepts is ideal.

I think it’s totally okay to have more than one favourite mug, why not have one for each day of the week?

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I had a blue and white teddy bear when I was little and I’m sure I’ll always remember her, even though she is long gone. I’m sure many of you had a favourite teddy when you were young and like me, named them too. At that point in time they are your best friend and a source of comfort. I think that every child needs a teddy when they are young, to think of fondly when they are older.

I saw some unique and adorable teddies for children on Hello Pretty; this classic pink Daisy teddy bear from foxy.moon is ideal for a little girl. The same store makes this very cool unicorn teddy called Skye, which I’m obsessed with. They also make Ebony the elephant, which looks so comfy to cuddle. Yves the raccoon from Cawi Kids & Co is something unique and I love the colours together.  How cute is the Lala Rabbit teddy from the Cawi Kids & Co as well?

Paul Dodd Collaborated with His Young Son to Make Beautiful Art

Paul’s son, Kylan, has always loved to draw and play around with art. When he was 3- years- old he loved to scribble on paper, and these ended up looking like the drawing and swirls of an artist. Paul wondered what these drawings would look like coloured in, so he decided to digitally colour them and they turned them into pieces of art.

The father and son duo really has some talent and my favourite is number 4. I love the colour choices, which are bright and exciting, and the patterns are beautiful and intricate too. Have a look at Paul’s website, Modern Enlightenment, for more pictures and information. 

Shine A Little Light

I love candles all around the house, I think in my bedroom alone I have about 5. They create such an amazing atmosphere and I must admit that a small part of me enjoyed the load shedding a while back, simply because I could light my candles. 

They smell great and make beautiful décor pieces. There is a very large range of candles for anyone and you can even make your own, which would be a fun DIY project to try over a weekend. Hello Pretty has some beautiful candles, I love the following;

For something fragrant, the ginger lime soy fragranced candle from Royal Afrique du Sud is great. The black textured candle from the Jeli store is something different, I love how big it is! A candle in a glass jar always looks nice in a home, I love this option from Bed Bath Body. Spoil yourself with a few of these moisturising candles from Wema Bodycare. Imagine how beautiful this 6-wick candle would look in the dark? I love the square flat candle from the Jeli store
