Mother love

I’ve been a bit overwhelmed by the amount of Mother’s Day promotions I’ve seen around the place and online – it may reflect the current state of Australian retail at the moment – some brands and stores are doing better than others. Being online definitely helps to reach people who may not be located locally or able to visit your bricks and mortar store. And while I have mixed feelings towards Instagram – I think if you work in fashion, food, art or anything design-related it’s a no brainer…

This mother in Greece last year…just because 🙂

As for me while gifts are nice, it’s experiences and the giving of time that is more special to me – my kids have previously made me a cake (albeit in the microwave!) as well as breakfast following a sleep in. It’s the thought that counts…

This mother likes to do fun and adventurous things so the Neon Playground light and art installation currently on at Melbourne Zoo has caught my eye as well as the multicultural No Lights No Lycra event at Darebin Intercultural Centre taking place on 9 May.

With cooler weather upon us, Mr Rosanna and I are still putting finishing touches to our place in terms of interior decorating. The vintage poster reproductions from La Brocante have caught our eye and we stopped in last weekend at one of Preston’s hidden secrets – Albi Homewares outlet with up to 70% off retail prices – located at 87 Chifley Drive Preston opposite Bunnings with its own separate driveway. It closes at 4pm on Saturdays so best to get there earlier in the day – it’s well worth a visit.

The Pared Eyewear sample sale is also currently on if you’re wanting to pick up some fun sunglasses at discount prices. I keep a cheaper pair of sunglasses in my car just in case I’m without my normal pair so it’s always good if you can find a bargain! Enjoy your weekend.
