Bedroom Bliss

There's been a lot of talk about bedrooms at MintSix over the last few weeks, as Vic is currently giving her room a bit of a spruce up. 

We've been pouring through the mags and of course 'Pinning' up a storm. We soon realised that we both have an equal appreciation for vibrant and colourful bedrooms as well as those with a more neutral and calm vibe. 

This weekend only we have 20% off selected products we think are great for a mid-year bedroom makeover.  

Plenty of inspiration here if you are thinking of giving your bedroom a makeover for winter. Check out our selection of products that would help to give your room a new look. 

20% off this weekend only, enjoy the long weekend!

Winter Wardrobe

It happens about this time every single year. I look through my wardrobe and have a mini meltdown over my lack of winter clothing. 

All my basics are pretty wrecked from wearing them repeatedly the year before and all I can see are some pilled long-sleeve tee's and some well-worn knits.

I picked up a few things when I was in Sydney a few weeks ago but I definitely have plenty more items on my wish list.

Low slung pants are my 'go to' pant right now. They're super comfortable but still look smart when paired with ankle boots or heels. 

One of my fave fashion bloggers Kaitlyn Ham from the blog Modern Legacy always looks cool in these pants(in pretty much everything actually!) The black and white Basikke 'Low Slung' pants, seen on Kaitlyn above, are on my wish list. There are also some great options at Moochi.

A recent Instagram shot of me in my budget friendly Cotton On Low Slungs. Similar clutches available from MintSix here.

A great pair of ankle boots, black sneaks and my trusty white leather converse & that's me set for the winter months. 

Here's an Instagram shot of me sporting my fave cons although I think the MintSix Tan Pouffe steals the show! New stock has just arrived.
I have a good few pairs of ankle boots, so can't really justify another pair (unfortunately) however if I was purchasing anytime soon a pair of grey suede boots would be at the top of my list.

I love a good knit, the slouchier the better. Country Road & Witchery have a few goodies at the moment, but for well priced knits, Asos can't be beaten. A couple of Asos options for under $50 below.

Reindeer Hides + Brita Sweden Blankets

The weather has well and truly taken a turn for the worse down in this part of the world, so I'm now focusing on creating cozy and warm spaces around my home.

Reindeer hides are thick, soft and luxurious. They look great draped on the sofa, over the end of your bed, on your fave armchair or used as a rug.

Our Reindeer Hides come from Lapland where Reindeer are traditionally saught for food making the hides a by-product. This has been the sustainable practice of the people of Lapland for hundreds of years.

The other winter 'must have' is a great blanket or throw. These soft Brita Sweden blankets are made from 100% pure lambs wool. They are a great large size and measure 130cm x 180cm.

Ellery was pretty stoked after school yesterday when she got to hang at MintSix snuggled up under one of our  grey Anna-Lisa blankets and play on the iPad.

 On another note, we are making room for some new products that are coming our way soon so have placed some of our fave items on sale. There are only one or two left of all these items, so grab yourself a bargain!

Mother's Day at MintSix

If I'm honest, I haven't been the best daughter in the world when it comes to Mother’s Day. 

I had a few friends that were organised enough to get a gift into the post, but for the thirteen years I lived abroad it never happened, tragic I know.

Now that I'm living in the same city as my mum, it's great that my sister and I can treat her out to lunch and give her a little pressie to say thanks for being awesome. Mum now has seven grandchildren, so we have a fair few of these 'grandma and new bubba' shots. This is mum above with Ella's little one, Harriet Mei. 

Here are just a few of our ideas we think Mums will love…
