New Release: The Simple Things by Antonia Kidman and Sally Collings

‘Creating an organised home, a happy family and a life worth living – life’s most joyful pleasures are often the simplest.’

I want to savour and appreciate what I have right here, right now rather than obsessing over what the future holds or what I could be. Antonia Kidman

In The Simple Things Antonia Kidman and Sally Collings encourage us to embrace a simpler life – a life that is healthier and less hurried – a life in which we are able to slow down enough to make meaningful connections with family, friends and community, as well as the world around us.

With advice on everything from organising your household, fixing your finances and nurturing your family, to ideas for craft and gardening projects, making your own beauty treatments, and having fun with your kids, The Simple Things is about rediscovering life’s simple joy.
