A REAL Update - Herb Farm Haul / New Linen Headboard

Today Chris and I took a drive out to The Herb Farm, which isn't too far away from where we live. I've been looking at their website for a while and had it in mind for a quick day trip. Unfortunately the weather did pack in a bit while we were there so we didn't walk around the gardens (we'll save that for summer). On the flip side it wasn't busy at all so it was the perfect opportunity to look through the retail store uninterrupted.


A mini haul for y'all. Before you kick down my front door wielding pitchforks, I've finished my first Project 10 Pan. I just haven't got around to showing you what I used up. Some really annoying things if I'm being honest with you. More on that later. The helpful girl at The Herb Farm answered all of our questions and we walked away with these three things. They've just launched two new face masks so I picked up one of those (not that I don't have enough, this one just looked special). I also couldn't resist the foot balm (yeah, I've got a couple of those too, so I only bought the smaller size). Chris was intrigued by this shampoo as it is supposed to keep your scalp nice and healthy, something he's dealing with at the moment. 


I'll let you know how these products go in a review soon. 


A quick snap of me on the way back to the car. Can you see the puddles in the background? What a day to decide to go on a garden walk. I'm sporting some of my new Witchery accessories here.


Do any of you shop at Witchery? I've been loving their accessories lately, and I got these for an absolute steal. I was flicking through my emails yesterday and I saw one from Witchery saying that my $20 Birthday Reward was going to expire yesterday. Say, whaaaat?!! I didn't know anything about this free $20 they were giving me. I went into the store yesterday about half an hour before they closed and the sales assistant told me I could use it on anything in store. Even SALE items. I found a really pretty gold, flower-type design headband for $24.50 (originally $40). I feel like a real princess wearing this! I also got some sunglasses (I only 'do' tortoiseshell) on sale for $14.95 (originally $80!!). Lastly I picked up the blue tassel key chain to give away to one of you! I got it for $1.50 (originally $20). I only paid $14 something all up. RIDIC. I'm sure I only paid about $7.50 for these glasses. Don't know where I put my receipt.


I'm in love with the little gold details on the arms. The good quality case will protect them well in my massively overstuffed handbag too. Moral of the story: read your emails!


Oh yeah, in other news, we DIY-ed an upholstered linen headboard!! Obviously I'm no Home and Garden Magazine stylist and more than one of those pillowcases needs an iron. I hate the top of those European pillowcases too, they need a starch or something. If you have any questions about how we made it, just ask below. We're so happy with it. We actually made it 1.2m tall and its just resting on the ground at the moment. I like that it goes the whole way down the bed but think it might look better sitting a little higher. What do you think? It's comfy to lean against when reading.


Here's me sporting my new headband. Loving it! Wanna know what's making my hair so shiny? All will be revealed in my next post....

Have you bought or made anything new lately?
