My Favourite Kmart Finds of 2018

It’s no secret that Kmart is amazing. I’m not going to pretend that I’m the only one who sees the beauty of its wonderfully low-priced items, but I’m still going to talk about them as if I am.

I really am a huge fan of Kmart. Most of my belongings used to be thrifted (and plenty of them still are! I love thrift shopping), but Kmart has definitely taken over as my go-to place to shop.

Their products are decently quality, amazingly priced, and perfect for my partner and I, who are in our early 20’s, work part-time, and don’t need/can’t afford appliances or furniture items that cost a few hundred dollars each.

So, today I’m going to share some of my all-time favourite purchases from Kmart that we’ve made throughout this year, just in case you aren’t aware of the amazing deals that are available, or are curious about the quality of certain products.

Everything that I list in this post, we own and love – and this is NOT sponsored by Kmart at all, it’s just an honest appreciation post for this wonder-store! ✨

DIY Licorice Allsorts Necklace (Super Easy!)

What’s this? Photos of ME, actually WEARING my creations?? 😯 Yep, that’s right! I decided 22 was going to be my best year yet, which means trying new things and pushing myself out of my comfort zone 🙌

I am NOT a huge fan of photos of myself, but I had no other way to showcase today’s super fun DIY project, so I set up my backdrop, lights, mirror, and tripod (first time using it!) and had a go! Hopefully I’ll get more comfortable in front of the camera as time goes on. But, enough about me! Let’s get onto the tutorial ☺️

YOU WILL NEED:

♡ Foam sheets in black, orange, pink, and white
♡ Craft glue
♡ Greylead pencil
♡ Scissors and ruler
♡ Thin necklace chain
♡ Large safety pins
♡ Two pairs of pliers or tweezers

How To Be More Environmentally Friendly In The Kitchen

First off, I just want to start this post by saying that The Small Adventurer is a NO JUDGEMENT ZONE. I am NOT here to tell you what to do, judge you for what you do, or try to make you feel guilty. I will be the first to admit that I don’t do nearly as much as I could for the environment, but like everyone else, I am trying to make small changes.

2018 has been the year that people – including myself – have really woken up to the environmental issues, particularly the problem with plastic, and how much it is affecting our ocean life. It’s heartbreaking what’s happening to those animals, but it’s great to see so many people trying to make a difference in the world.

Whilst I was baking one day, I realised that there were choices I could make that would help lessen the effects that I personally was making towards the amount of waste that goes to landfill, especially considering that sometimes I bake three different recipes in one day!

So, these are just some small changes that I am going to try to make as often as I can, and if you have any other ideas for me, then let me know! Some of these things had never even occurred to me before, until I started looking for ways to create less waste, so there is probably many more things I could do to be even better at it.

Once again, this is a judgement-free zone. You can do all of these, one of them, or none, and I’m not going to say a word, because I know not everybody is in the position to make changes like this. I just thought I’d share them with you all today as I honestly hadn’t thought of a couple of them until I really tried looking for things to change. Perhaps they’ll give you a lightbulb moment like they gave me! Either way, happy baking ☺️💕
