This is us…

Two friends, since primary school. Two Mums, to seven little people. Two faces behind the goings on at Nest Seven, so proud to bring our news to you.

Welcome to December! We are so looking forward to Summer weather, BBQ’s, beach days and of course the school holidays! We love the break from routine the school holidays provides. We’re always on the look out for things to do with the kids so we would love to hear your plans! Funfields is on our holiday list this year as well as a quick camping trip away with lots of Tiger Tribe activities for those super hot afternoons. We can’t think about December without thinking Christmas. We have spoken to so many people who have already FINISHED their shopping! I admit, I am yet to start! Experiences are top of my kids lists this year, with Mr 11 and Mr7 both pleading to replicate our Chin Chin dinner and Big Bash match from last year. Ahh yes please boys! 

Speaking of gifts, is your partner the worst gift buyer in the universe? Some people think gift hints are rude. I think if he’s going to spend money, I’d like it to be on something I actually like! We can help in this area! Send us your wishlist of products and let him know we’re really great at helping with gifts! We can gently steer him in the right direction. Win win.

Product Spotlight

We love the range of Dahla towels by a local Geelong Mum. With a focus on FUN but definitely not scrimping on the functionality. Dahla is putting an end to dry, scratchy towels. Their 100% cotton velour towels are super soft, absorbent, and large enough to share. The best bit? They’re yarn-dyed so they’re resistant to fading. Designed in Australia and made in Portugal we love the bright designs and think these are the peeeerfect KK or gift for that hard to buy for someone. 

Lifestyle news

What’s cooking?

Cooking for our friends and families is something we love to do and we often use our Thermomixes to do it.

Both Nest Seven ladies are also Thermomix consultants, yes we love our Thermies that much! You can check our Facebook pages where we share meal plans, tips and recipes for feeding our families and access to a co-op buying group for bulk wholefoods.

With Christmas around the corner we’re planning what we’ll be putting on the table for our families and this Cherry Cheesecake will definitely be on mine! Although not a Thermomix recipe, I’ll be adapting this recipe to make use of the Thermie. 

Oil of the month

Lime Essential Oil has a sweet and zesty flavour and fragrance making it equally useful in recipes for cooking and cleaning, not to mention a fresh and clean aroma for diffusing. 

Make your own refreshing room spray by combining 20 drops each of lime, lemon and grapefruit oils with distilled water in a spray bottle. Use it to freshen up any space if you don’t have a diffuser.

As with lemon oil lime can be a great addition to a morning glass of water to enhance the flavour but also support healthy immune function. Wonder if adding to your cocktail will still have the same health benefits 😉 

My favourite use – on BBQ’d corn! Find the recipe here. So good.   

It all started with banana bread…

Ginger & zest all started between Courtney and Jo over a freshly baked banana cake and a hot cuppa and we love that! A truely home grown business that flourished after  years of growing up together laughing. 

With an impressive menu listing things like Homemade chargrilled vegetable quiches, Rare beef and Horseradish cream sliders and Dark chocolate + raspberry brownie served with vanilla cream (mouth watering) the girls pride themselves on using local product and local companies to support our local community. 

Ginger & Zest can cater for any celebration or event with 50+ people, seven days a week: corporate, lunches and birthdays being their specialties.

Need to get away?

We did! We enjoyed an amazing few nights away at Weets Lodge on the outskirts of the beautiful Daylesford. We stayed with another family and there was ample room for all of us! The kids loved the bushwalks and friendly wildlife and Mum and Dad loved the Daylesford Cider! This gorgeous four bedroom sleeps 8. Next time, it will be a girls trip for sure!
