"I have a pretty simple rule of thumb when choosing candles scents," says Jo Reid, the talented lady behind local brand Violet + Rose. "If it smells like bubble gum or air freshener, it's no go!". This is just one of the reasons why I adore these brand new scented candles. Here's a few more that'll have you equally smitten and eager to get your hands on one!

I'm not going to lie; I've dabbled in just about every craft know to man (and woman) over the years - but I never quite grasped how amazing these crafts were until I saw some of the things you could produce through knitting, sewing, stitching and crochet. Let's look at some of the images I've discovered from my fave new craft website. They will, seriously, make you want to craft immediately!

In case you hadn't noticed, I like to get my craft on as often as possible. There's nothing I love more than mixing and matching a purchase from a store with an affordable handmade treasure. These three Easter craft activities will give you the cuteness factor that this festive holiday is crying out for!

The Crafty Minx at Home - MirrorIt's no secret that I love to get my craft on, so this release from Kelly Doust, The Crafty Minx at Home, is right up my alley. Filled to the brim with upcycling ideas, furniture reinventions and enough projects to keep you going for months, it's undoubtably a crafters bestie!

Urban Couture Homewares - The Life CreativeI’m in love with Urban Couture. There, I said it! Not only is this one-stop destination for interiors and homewares stunning to look at and shop in, but a percentage of profits is donated to the RSPCA. “I think in my past life I may have been a dog myself,” Tom Towhidi - one half of the team behind the brand - tells me.

Mr Jason Grant's A Place Called HomeI was eagerly awaiting the launch of A Place Called Home by Sydney stylist Mr Jason Grant for quite a while - and for many reasons. Firstly, how refreshing to see a home decor book my a male! Secondly, I had seen the front cover of the book splashed over social media and it alone had spoken to me (I have that storage box, I love decorating with red and I adore using pegs to display photos!) Lastly, he's uniquely Australian; what's not to love about a local lad whose spent years working with popular magazines, now releasing a book that chronicles his favourite things?
