Thank you to Artistic Den for supplying the brilliant (in brightness and quality!) Fluro Pink Fabric Paint, that I used to paint plain white pillowcases and turn them into designer scalloped painted pillowcases. I bought a packet of plain white pillowcases from Target (Australia) that were just $12 (for the pair) – BTW… 500 thread count and Australian Cotton and very nice quality! So with these, some other simple supplies and Fabric Paint (no more than $10), you too can make these adorable pillowcases.

It has been awhile since I’ve done an Etsy Finds – but lately I find myself admiring the many beautiful cushions (as we know them in Australia) or pillows elsewhere in the world. I’ve been adding a few to my favourites and I noticed that, although all varied designs and from different countries, they complete the “boho, mismatched, but somehow works look” beautifully!
If you like the bohemian look above, here are the links to the Etsy Stores …

Be Warned – you may spend hours looking and imagining the different looks on your couch – there are so many lovely designs, colours and looks that could work 😉 Enjoy!
Firstly, this is an unpaid review. I just love the products and thought I’d share. If you’re interested, you can read my previous reviews on MooGoo Cover-Up Buttercup SPF15 Sunscreen and MooGoo Full Cream Moisturiser, Cow Lick Lip Balm and Dusty Girls Earth Cream.
So I purchased the Super Vitamin C Serum a little while ago. I have freckles and some sun damage and my face is just a little dry with the rain free winter here in Queensland. I’m not complaining, winter is a beautiful time of year here, but the lack of humidity sometimes does dry your skin.
This is one small ‘pumps worth’ to show the amount – and this is probably all you will need for face coverage. It has a very, very light fragrance (yes!) and a slightly pinky orange hue to it. According to MooGoo, this serum is based around an oil soluble form of Vitamin C and thus can be absorbed deeper into the skin. You can apply it under moisturiser and make up or alone.
Next up is SPF Lip Balm. I already have (and love) the Cow Lick Lip Balm, but bought this in readiness for the warmer months. Well really, you could (and should) wear every day. Remember that ‘Sun Mum’ advert … “Cloudy days still mean UV rays Claire” – I never heard the end of it when that first came out, but this advertisement obviously did the job because it stuck with me 🙂 When the Lip Balm goes on, it does have a faint opaqueness to it (that’s the Natural non-nano Zinc Oxide) – but it sinks in and protects your lips! Nice texture.
Skin Milk Udder Cream. This was MooGoo’s first product that started it all. A simple, yet effective non-greasy cream that you can use under make-up or alone. Great for dry arms and legs too, or anywhere else – it’s actually used in many hospitals around the country for dry and damaged skin – that’s saying something about the efficacy of this product. It has a light, pleasant fragrance, like a lighter version of the Full Cream Moisturiser. To be honest, I always thought it was skiM Milk 🙂 not Skin Milk.
Last, but not least, the same great product as last time I reviewed this – just new packaging. Dusty Girls Earth Cream is wonderful, everyday stuff – use as your foundation with natural sun protection.
