Introducing Apron Creations!

My mum Julie has just launched her business Apron Creations, unique aprons crafted with love, handmade in Perth, Western Australia.

Launching just in time for Christmas, these gorgeous aprons make the perfect Christmas gift for the bakers and cooks in your life!

Ladies Aprons

Christmas Aprons

Apron Creations started out as a craft project, with my mum Julie designing and making aprons as unique gifts for friends and family.  After gifting aprons to a few of my friends for their 21st birthdays, other friends commented on how gorgeous they were and started putting in requests for aprons of their own. By then, mum had noticed a gap in the market for adorable, unique, eye-catching aprons, and so Apron Creations was founded.

There are a range of ladies and children’s aprons available for sale, priced at $35 and $20 respectively (not including postage). Delivery in the Perth metro area can also be arranged for Christmas.

You can view and purchase these beautiful aprons at For more information, please email Julie at

An open letter to Justin Timberlake


Two Aussie girls, some really bad dance moves and a great big dream to meet you…

Dear Justin,

We have a crush on you. We’ve got that Tunnel Vision for you and want you to know this isn’t just a Summer Love. You are our King of Pop JT, and we really, REALLY wanted to meet you but were saddened we couldn’t buy tickets for a ‘meet and greet’. So we decided to write you a letter in the hope that through this wiz-bang internet thing, it will somehow reach you and want to meet us, too!

‘We’ are Dominique & Tara, TNKids from sunny Perth, Western Australia, the most isolated capital city in the world. We are every day, 20-something Aussie girls – Tara works in beauty, Dominique in marketing – but Justin, we think what might make you say Damn Girl about us is that when we first met, we bonded over our love for your music, together with our inability to dance. It might seem a bit illogical, but we found Mirrors of ourselves in one another, both so in love with your music, yet both so uncoordinated that we make such fools of ourselves when we dance to your songs. But, as bad of dancer-singers we may be, we figure It’s not a Bad Thing, because as our love for you and your music has always been the basis of our strong friendship and we have you to thank for that!

Justin, we hope that on the off chance you read this, you might want to hop into your Spaceship Coupe and meet us too (there’s room for three, not only two!), so this is dedicated to you; the key eras of our JT fan history:

  • We were both only 5 years old when NSYNC formed in 1996 and as kids of the 90’s/early 2000’s we grew up with this hit music. We loved all NSYNC boys, but we were always Crazy for You.
  • At age 11 in 2002, Justified was the first CD album we both ever bought. Rock your Body was definitely up there as one of Tara’s favourites, but Senorita was Dominique’s ultimate hit – she always wore her hot pink Supre Senorita singlet when listening to the album.
  • In 2008 we attended your Future Sex/Love Sound show at Burswood Dome in Perth. It was the best concert experience of our lives because Tara swears; hand on heart that you winked to her during the show. Yep, she’s That Girl the one you winked to all those years ago! Dominique thinks you were probably just squinting at us with disbelief that two people could be so uncoordinated, yet so engrossed in your music, but we Let the Groove Get In and we hope we made you proud!
  • At aged 18 in 2009, Dominique was kicked out of her first ever nightclub for ‘breaking it down’ with some signature dance moves to SexyBack. She has not been back to that nightclub since.
  • Now, in 2014 we regularly bond over our love for you with Saturday night wine evenings featuring only your music, fine wine and our signature dance moves. But, no matter how much wine, we can’t Drink You Away and we still can’t dance.
  • And lastly, a few weeks ago Dominique celebrated her birthday at a nightclub in Perth. We requested your songs all night; breaking it down, thinking we looked like Sexy Ladies with our signature dance moves. If you saw, you might have thought ‘that girl is Murder‘ing my song with her moves, but guess what Justin?! That night, our awful moves didn’t even get us kicked out!

So that just about wraps us up. We will be going to your 20/20 Experience World Tour at Perth Arena on Wednesday, October 8 and have bought VIP standing tickets that give us access to the front of the stage, but seeing you in your Suit and Tie on stage just isn’t enough for these two #TNKids!

So, what do you think My Love, Justin Randall Timberlake? Is there a chance you would like to meet us, these two LovedStoned Aussie girls with the really bad dance moves, when you Take Back the Night on October 8 at Perth Arena?!

Love from your Pusher Love Girls, biggest Perth fans (and probably Perth’s worst dancers) Until The End Of Time,

Dominique and Tara

Keturah Day Spa – Heaven in a massage and facial

For Christmas last year I received a gift voucher for a massage and facial package for Keturah Day Spa. SQUEE! Best. Present. EVER. I didn’t even hint at wanting this either (though I really, really did) – good job, Boyfriend! I was saving my voucher to use for a special occasion, so I recently decided to book myself in at Keturah in Highgate to rejuvenate my skin after a few weeks of travel – my poor, dehydrated skin was definitely feeling the ill-effects of flying.

Cheeky Chocolate Cheesecake

A chocolate cheesecake was my little brothers’ dessert of choice for his 18th birthday dinner recently. I like to bake but was happy he chose something easy as I’m certainly no pro (see my Super easy *cough packet mix* Easter cupcakes here).

Social media – How do you use it and how satisfied does it make you?

65% of Aussies use social media and of these users, 45% access their social media platforms at least once a day.* But have you ever thought about how or why you use social media (in particularly Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube) and the satisfaction you get out of using them?

Well, a good friend of mine has questioned this, and Continue reading
