Wantable July Make-Up Box

Received my Wantable July Make-up subscription box today, and again love what I got!

.

I received 4 items, from left to right: Beauty for Real Lip Gloss in Really Red, SPELLBOUND Nail Lacquer in Jinx, Frankie Rose Limitless Waterproof Gel Eyeliner and Beauty for ReaGet Glowing in In the Pink.

.

The lip gloss has a small mirror on the side of the package which is a great idea! This shade of red is great for my olive skin tone. Love the eyeliner gel as it’s waterproof and comes with a small angle brush. The 2 compact blush has the top colour for luminising and the pink blush is a great tint for the sun-kissed looked – it’s great to build colour if you want a bit more for night time. The nail polish at this time weather wise I may not use yet, but I’m sure will be great for Spring/Summer.

So quite happy with this month’s make-up subscription box. I added my wish list in the comment section when ordering and they took great care to meet my needs.

Teeny-Tiny Cardigans

If you follow me on Instagram (if not, why not! LOL), then you would have seen I’ve been knitting teeny-tiny cardigans during this school holidays.

.

And may I say, I am loving them (once they’re finished … I do dread the finishing part of knitting). Aren’t they just such teeny-tiny cuteness! I’ve been going through my yarn stash and playing around with the different ply of yarn and couldn’t resist buying some new colourful ones (whoops! Oh no, I fell down in Lincraft and came home with this bag of wool).

.

Anyhoo, even though they are teeny-tiny, they do take quite a bit of time to make. Some of these cardigans I already have plans for to make into My Teeny-Tiny Dolls®  with co-ordinating outfits. They are made using a pattern by My Fair Dolly.

But in the meantime, been “enjoying” the time with the boys at home … “enjoying” said with a BIG smile, no really!? When they are not annoying each other, they come to me, so no real sewing getting done here.

I made new cushion covers today, as the ones I made last year was getting quite tatty with 2 boys using them as serviette :/ Here’s what I had before

.

And here the 3 new ones, with an extra little boy in the picture.

.

As for the younger one, well … just laying about on the dining table.

.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend and Happy 4th of July to my American friends!

Changes to Domestic Parcel Post

Hullo! A couple of changes to the way I charge domestic parcel post.

Australia Post made a few changes to their domestic post charges a couple of times already this year (as well as previous years). I, however, did not take these price increases into account in my shipping cost and have had the same charges for past 2 years. Unfortunately though, I have to increase the shipping charges slightly as a response to Australia Post’s increases.

Domestic regular postage and handling for parcels weighing up to 500g will change from $8.50 to $8.95.

In the past, for all the My Teeny-Tiny Dolls® purchases, postage service included regular post, signature on delivery + extra cover. In order to keep postal charges under control, all domestic parcels weighing up to 500g will be shipped via regular post at $8.95 only. Customers who wish to have the additional services of signature on delivery and extra cover (insurance) can request for it and I will send a PayPal invoice to cover the extra cost.

I advise to add signature on delivery + extra cover if by any chance your postal service isn’t up to par, you are not home for deliveries or you have had misfortunes in the past of parcels going missing or damaged, I atleast recommend signature on delivery.

Want to know your item has been delivered and signed for? Signature on Delivery captures a signature of the recipient once the item has been delivered.”

Price $2.95 extra.

For valuable items, extra cover is a great additional postal service to have.

“Sending something valuable or important? Extra Cover provides you with cover for the specified value of your item (up to $5,000) if your item is lost or damaged while being carried by Australia Post.”

Price $1.50 per $100 of your item’s value (or part thereof). For items valued over $300, signature on delivery must be added.

If you know you have a great postal service in your area or you have your letters and parcels delivered to a P.O. Box, then regular postage should suffice. All regular postage includes tracking so if the parcels do go on a detour, it is easier to track and I can lodge an enquiry with Australia Post. Do note though, if parcel is lost or damaged, I recommend to have signature on delivery + extra cover.

All other shipping information (international) can be found in the Policies tab of my bigcartel shop.

Thanks for your continued support.
