※ Anzac Biscuits

I baked a fresh batch of Anzacs this morning.

To the New Zealanders and Australians who have fought for freedom. Thank you. 98 years ago today, Allied forces landed on the Gallipolli peninsula in Turkey. It is now commemorated as ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand.

“…They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.” Lest we forget

What an awesome Dad.

From his Flickr: "Since May 2008 I have been drawing on my kids' sandwich bags with a Sharpie marker. Each drawing is done just after I make the sandwich. I take a picture and post to flickr. My kids don't see the drawing until it is lunchtime."

※ Regarding Lip balms and glosses

Regarding Lip balms and glosses: (I've had quite a few e-mails)
Firstly, sorry everybody who keeps asking about them. Will be restocking late April / May. Sorry for inconvenience, I have been very busy. I will be back with a new and exciting range soon I promise.
If you have any feedback about previous batches I would love to hear it, good or bad.

I'm reformulating vanilla honey as it was a bit to soft. If there are any flavours you'd love repeated please let me know also.

Kind regards

Elle
