The Ultimate Rabbit Hole



Hey there! Happy Saturday. What a crazy week it has been. When I posted the Kmart Hack post on Tuesday night I thought to myself, good job Fleur, this is a cracker of a post. I even remember telling The Mr to stop talking to me so I could finish the post and get it published. Sorry honey. I thought it would be one of my better posts. I had no idea.

Um….yeah….so it kinda went a bit viral.

It was madness! My blog almost crashed twice! I had to up the hosting to 2 new servers to cope with all you Kmart Hack addicts out there – and there are a lot of you.

So a big THANK YOU to every one who has shared the post on Facebook and Instagram. I couldn’t ever thank you enough. Never ever enough!! I am seriously blown away by the support. THANK YOU to all the amazing emails I received, I will respond to you as soon as I can. And a big shout out to all our new readers who have joined us on Facebook and Instagram, so pumped you are there with us.

But the biggest THANK YOU are to all our new readers here this morning who loved Our Urban Box so much they came back for more. And I am so darn excited you are here!! I hope you love it here as much as I do.

I have so many more post ideas and content planned for you. This blog is for you! If there is something you want me to write about, source for you, a particular problem you need solving or anything really, shoot me through an email at hello @ (no spaces obvs) and tell me what it is you want to see here. This place is for you! Lets create a awesome community together!!

So each Saturday morning I host a link up with 4 of the coolest gals around Karin, Jess and Sam. We host The Ulitmate Rabbit Hole Link Up love fest. Each week we list some of the best reads and coolest finds on the internet for you to enjoy. We then open up the party to other bloggers to link up their awesome posts from the week. That results in one mega list of awesome reading for your weekend – kinda cool huh?

Here is what I have found this week –

➕ Adult friendships can be more complicated than those 4 way love triangles in grade 2. But sometimes you just have to let go of the negativity that some friendships bring, and there are no break up rules when it comes to friendships.

Lamb is my favourite meat. But add lemon, garlic, thyme, oregano and tzatiki – well I am all over that feast. Jess – you have me hook, line and sinker on this recipe.

➕ I know my bedroom is a bit drab at the moment. It needs a freshen up. But we are about to start building so I have pinned this post for reference later. Jo has put together some easy tips and hints on how to redecorate your bedroom.

➕ Target has released a new homewares catalogue and the pages are bursting with affordable homewares. Get on it peeps! There is so many things I could buy.

➕ Caravaning around Australia is my dream in retirement. But only if I can do it in style like this caravan of awesomeness that Sonia from Life Love and Hiccups found. I could seriously park myself in that and be happy like a pig in mud!

    What a cracking week you’ve had fleur! I’m totally wanting to do a bedroom makeover too, the thought of painting doesn’t thrill me though.

    Congratulations viral lady you absolutely nailed it with that one! A little bit about me…I’m in Sydney but soon we are moving to Townsville (don’t ask, involves football), I like the plain old ham & cheese pizza and there is no place for pineapple on pizza at all, although I do love pineapples in decor. Shoe size is 7, and I have a blatant love of shoes although these days the it’s flat rather than heels that I’m rocking ! I hope you have a great weekend and well done to you again. x

      Thank you!! My brother and his family live in Townsville! Lovely up there. Bit wet and humid though lol. Pineapple does belong a pizza! Are you crazy haha. It’s ok. We can still be friends, we just can’t share a pizza. Happy weekend to you too x

    Hi Fleur – what a wonderful blog you have created. There is so much fantastic information and great things to read via your links. I feel the need to grab a cuppa (or a bit later a glass of chardy) and come back and spend some serious time looking at all you’ve posted. A little about me – I live on the Northern Beaches of Sydney overlooking Pittwater, I love thin pizza with rocket and proscuttio, size 7 shoe and just bought some boots from Hype and white converse (although I’m a little too old for them but who cares). Enjoying the glorious sunny Sydney weather and watching the Anzac Day remembrance services. Have a lovely weekend. Cheers Chris x

    Congrats! The Kmart post was pretty amazing 🙂 I’m so boring and can never imagine things as different purposes then they are sold. Loved that friendship post.
