The Resene Upcycling Awards are coming back this month, the third year in a row! Watch this space and get prepared for the announcement; there are great prizes up for grabs.

Consider using the school holidays to get Upcycling with the smaller members of your household - or use the next rainy day to drag out the paint and your creativity!

In the meantime, check out some of the creative cookies from last year.

Super cute Lululemon leggings with pockets! White flower pattern, two pockets on the sides for your phone and little zip pocket on the back. The tag has been cut off so not sure about the size but I normally wear a 6 or 8. These are full length.
I'm not super familiar with the different Lululemon styles but these feel not the really thick ones, they are definitely more on the soft side (they are very soft in fact).
Pick up from Island Bay or I can send if you cover postage fees.
