I didn't have a present for my mum on her birthday one year so while she was out for a few minutes I put this together: A salon in our lounge room, complete with a red 'carpet' made from place mats. I gave her face masks, a foot spa and nail treatments. It wasn't much but sometimes efforts like this are better than any bought gift. It could be a good idea for Valentine's day :)

I organised a 'Seven Deadly Sins' themed party for my 19th birthday. Each room in my house was a different one of the sins There was a Greed room with a 'pot of gold', a blanket fort Sloth room, a Wrath room with boxing and a dart board, a stocked kitchen for Gluttony, as well as Pride in the hallway, Vanity in the bathroom, and Lust in one of the bedrooms. I loved this creative theme :)

DIY Storage Idea:  Any time my family orders takeaway food that uses these plastic containers, we wash and keep them. They come in handy for repackaging food or they can be used as storage containers. They're particularly useful for organising drawers.

A DIY calendar I made for my desk.  I got a white frame, made a table in Microsoft Word, printed it out and inserted it into the frame. Then you can write on the glass with a whiteboard marker.

I read a few articles and studies that claimed that listening to static or instrumental music while studying improves concentration and retention. I decided to try it out for myself. I found that static, instrumental music and rainymood.com all worked wonders! I can concentrate much better with the sound of rain as opposed to other sounds or just plain silence. Now I use this technique for every difficult assignment I do and it has helped a lot. I hope it can help some of you too :)

This is the Old Cave at Reynella Winery. I work here sometimes and it is a beautiful place for a wedding. Outside this rustic cellar function room is a stunning, lush garden doused in dappled sunlight from a large tree.

DIY Storage Idea: If you have wine bottles left over from a big night you can wash and dry them and use them to keep your boots nice and straight :)
