Sunday Funday // Avoca Beachside Markets...

You don't need to know me very well to know that I love a good day out at the markets and the Central Coast certainly has it's fair share of fabulous markets. Although I have been to the Avoca Beachside Markets a few times now, it never disappoints me (well unless it's bucketing down and gets cancelled for the day!! that always puts a damper on it haha ;) Never the less it's the perfect place to spend with the family or even on your own, as I did on Sunday for a few hours. 

Things I really love about this market are it's so colourful, the music, the food, and the amazing wide variety of creative stores. A few of my personal favourite stallholders would have to be lolli & bean, House of Bec, Farrah's Stone, My Little Succulent, and Charlie and Bella Cupcakes

Get along to this gem of a market and enjoy a relaxing, creative environment. Take the kids, grandma or every your little furry friend. The Avoca Beachside Markets is on every fourth Sunday of the month, from 9am till 2pm.

Do you enjoy markets? What's a perfect Sunday look like for you?

  1. I love a good market too. It's fabulous to see the creativity people have with their home made stuff. I just love the atmosphere of markets too, it doesn't matter if it's queit or bustling.

  2. I spent my Sunday at the markets - Bangalow Markets. They would have to be my favourite. I always come home with an armload of treasures and THE most delicious food x

  3. You pretty much just nailed my perfect day right there. I am a market magnet and wandering around looking at everything is one of my fave things to do... apart from sleeping and drinking cocktails.. in no particular order ;) xx

  4. You know me Bec - I can't resist a good market and this one looks lovely. Something tells me your latest creations would be very popular here... :)

  5. Beautiful pics. I do miss markets living out here!

  6. I love markets but don't often get to go. I usually forget they are on :)

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
