Peaches and Clean
9 July, 2014
I have been involved in the MANY 6160 retail area for a few weeks now and have been discovering so many amazing shops because of it. One in particular Peaches n Clean, a 100% natural product for your body. Katrina (maker/owner) started the brand because she couldn’t find anything that would work for her, having eczema – every product she tried, flared it up! Continue Reading

It’s winter…we all feel a bit blah, it’s time for some pampering…so I have decided to show you all the great products I have been buying lately in an effort for my own wellness week. It’s all about you…and the environment…
Kicking off my wellness week is a brand that I only just found a few weeks ago on Instagram. All of the blow drying and straightening I do, not to mention this naturally curly mop, I do try my hardest to keep my hair nourished and moisturised. I was hooked on a brand that I recently found out was testing on animals still so I was at a loss because I really loved how my hair felt after using it. Continue Reading
MANY 6160; Discover Creatives
26 June, 2014
Fremantle, it’s been my nemesis for many years. And I know that could come to a shock to some, because I love incense for a start, and candles, crystals, all things hippy, I am laid back and casual – Freo is all me. I love old buildings, I mean it’s a photographer’s dream! It’s full of cute little boutiques AND markets…but it was always so far away for me and guaranteed every trip had me lost on the road and the streets, EVERY trip! Being lost frustrated me and so…I decided I didn’t like Fremantle.
Lately I’ve really been giving it a go though, being a lot closer, and of course, I have been delighted – of course I have!! All of a sudden I am in love like a love sick teen. So my invite to the MANY 6160 building to be shown around was something I was not going to pass up – as now being lost in Fremantle is a positive…especially while I have google maps on my phone.
If you have set foot in the MANY 6160 building then I am sure you have already been delighted by the senses, tastes and visuals…but what struck me as different was the makers upstairs. Yes, that’s right, a place for creatives to hire out and get all their work done (rather than doing it all in their tin sheds out the back) a place to also converse with other creatives rather than being by yourself all day. Basically…if I want something like a stool or a table made from recycled wood and you don’t have the handy skills to do so (I don’t have the handy skills to do so lol) – these guys upstairs can do it for you!
A few of my faves from the day…(Click each to check out their websites)
- Peaches & Clean – a no chemical, great for your skin, vegan business – candles, coffee scrubs, soaps – yes, all the lush stuff!
- A good looking man – (and he is – he looks like my Dad when he was 30!) one of the makers from upstairs, constructing some amazing pieces with recycled (coloured) wood! Really really funky stuff!
- Respoke – Another maker, designing light fittings and large constructed pieces out of bike parks, you have to see it to believe it!
- Kate & Abel – Hats, hats and more hats (plus a lot of quirky things that I wanted…Mexican rugs…MiGoals stationery…etc.) Oh and Washi tape – loads of it!
- Owned accessories – 3d printer, need I say more?
- Antipodium – a collection of beautiful pieces AND offering a 10% discount if you mention Where the styled things are!!

That’s not to say that I didn’t love every single retailer and maker…they all served a really great spot in my heart and I can see so much potential for me to use either their services or purchase from them. Have a look through the gallery above for what is in store and DON’T MISS OUT on the Blogger Emporium (markets) happening at Many 6160 on July 5th 10am – 4pm! (More on this in a few days).
Head over to MANY 6160 and have a squizz – you won’t be dissapointed! They ALSO do workshops with studio bomba – make a terrarium, a flower crown, learn how to handwrite!!!! I need to leave before I make this blog post too long….just go there! 🙂
Oh, the places you’ll go!
24 June, 2014
Congratulations, today is your day! You’re off to great places, you’re off and away!
Dr Seuss is a genius! He makes you think like a 5 year old, and sometimes that is just the thing we need to continue down the path of success. I was given the book “Oh, the places you’ll go” a little over 6 months ago – and have been hooked ever since. Continue Reading
Winter face – Kosmea + LaMav
3 June, 2014
Oh winter! I hate you already! No but seriously…not only is it causing 1970’s foxy brown afro hair, but it’s also drying out my skin as the chill of the cold air blasts through my face while crossing the highway going to work every single day! Winter and I have a love/hate relationship, I love it when I am sick and snuggled up on the couch with soups and tea, or just in general having a lazy DVD day. But…let’s face it, those things are few and far between – EVERY other day is spent running around in the rain getting soaked through and freezing my face AND butt cheeks off! Continue Reading

First day of winter yesterday…I am not impressed! Even though I am not happy with the drizzly skies, loss of motivation and cravings for warm homely fattening foods – fashion however has taken a distinct turn. Continue Reading
Cruelty Free Lipsticks
29 May, 2014
Being so cruelty free conscious lately, and trying to go chemical free for at least my skin (as a start) has been somewhat hard, I’ll admit that I am still fumbling in the unknown as when I started looking in to lipsticks for this particular blog post, I was still finding that insect blood is used for pigmentation in really rich red lipsticks. Continue Reading
Dancing in the Dark
21 May, 2014
Like a magpie, shiny things capture my attention in a mesmerising stare, I find myself flocking to anything sequinny and gold. Glistening sleeves only add to a simple black outfit and the Dancing in the Dark top from St Frock is a certain for business in the front party in the back. Continue Reading
6 Tips for a winter juice cleanse!
13 May, 2014
Easter is still haunting me weeks later, all of my hard work went straight out the window as my bloated belly gurgled it’s way through the days and my OCD (obsessive chocolate disorder). Exercise has been no problem but the chocolate, bread, and huge meals have been, I was craving another juice cleanse! (Especially the Chai Vanilla mm mm mmm) Continue Reading
Things that I do that probably everyone else does too but I think it’s just me that does it?
29 April, 2014
Rather long title right? I feel like…I had a week off work, Easter was damn good, I may have eaten a little too much and fell off the health AND blog bandwagon so it’s time to ease back into it again with some general knowledge on life… Continue Reading
