Ryhia Dank is the talented artist behind Nardurna and she describes herself as:
I am a contemporary Aboriginal artist who grew up in a remote community and now live in modern Australia. My paintings are storywork. Gudanji/Wakaja people told stories through pattern and design – I call my storying: nardurna. The three lines in my brand are to acknowledge the three woman who came from the ocean near Ngukurr in the Gulf of Carpentaria. They travelled a long way and then created the place of my family, the hills and fresh water Country
Leafy Lane – I came across Leafy Lane on Instagram during the second Melbourne lock down and he inspired me to put a sweet potato in a jar of water and wait for the vine to grow! It took much longer in cold Melbourne for the vine to grow, but it really took off once the warmer weather started. Phil followed his instructions and we now have a lovely plant coming out of an avocado seed as well. Head to his Instagram account for lots of tips on indoor plants and growing plants from seeds.
Brad has now started an online store where you can buy (before they sell out!) some lovely ceramic and glass pieces for your indoor creations.

EcoCocoon Stainless Steel 4 Cup Set – Tropical Sunset – I was instantly drawn to this cup set because it reminded me of the a very cute cup set my Pa had when I was little. There were 4 cups and they came in a cute leather case with a zip. 4 was the perfect number as I was one of four girls and we all had our favourite colour (or argued over our favouorite color!)
EcoCocoon’s stainless steel cup range are durable, beautiful and help prevent single-use plastic ending up in landfill. They are safe, reusable and come in lovely bright colours. They are packaged in a neoprene cuddler for portability & protection. The outer paint is non toxic and they are hand wash only.
Twenty8 Signature Ultrasonic Diffuser – I love my diffuser and use it daily. This ultrasonic diffuser from Twenty8 is so gorgeous and is perfect if you are looking for one in a modern, minimalist style. If you are looking to buy some oils as well as a diffuser, then this Diffuser and Three Oils Bundle is great value.

Slackers Extreme Ropes Ninja Course – how much fun does this look? Not only is it fun but it also helps build core strength and balance with a variety of obstacles. This kit comes with a slackline and a ninjaline (a slackline with sewn pockets in it) that you can easily set up between two trees or posts. A variety of obstacles attach to the ninjaline for added difficulty and fun.
