March: What Are The Top Three Things You’d Recommend To A Friend This Month?

by Carly Jacobs
My aunty once told me about her old boss and the unusual gift registry she had on her 50th birthday. She asked each of her friends to give her what they were currently into for a birthday present. For example a book they’d recently read, a TV series they were addicted to, a CD of their favourite songs, a voucher to a great new restaurant they’d discovered. It was such a great way to get to know her friends a Read the rest!

The 6 Secrets of Successful Shoe Storage

by Carly Jacobs
Shoe storage can be an absolute nightmare. When I was in high school I used to just chuck all my shoes down the bottom of my cupboard.
