    Rock This Winter With Empress Eleven

    When I headed out to pick Esther up from Prep on the Thursday afternoon before Mother’s Day, a Couriers Please van stopped me on my street to give me a parcel I had to sign for. I wasn’t expecting any parcels as I hadn’t ordered anything online. I quickly placed the parcel in my garage and reminded […] Read more…

    A month or so after I bought my black jeans from Sussan, that random scan on my VIP card reactivated promotional material sent to my letter box.

    Pockets of my Home

    In the last month or so, I have spent quite a bit of time at home with the girls. Even when Esther was on school holidays, we spent a bit of time at home playing, watching movies and trying to enjoy each other’s company.

    When I shared 40 ways to change the interior of your home, I had two questions about where to source affordable art. Ironically, Jacob and I have been looking at various online stores to find the perfect wall art for our dining room.
