It's a man's man's man's world...

the song made famous by the great James Brown was originally described as 'biblically chauvinistic', for pointing out that man made the car, train, electric light and the boat, not to mention toys for the boys and the girls. 
It's true though, men are quite the clever species.
dads, we salute you for all the special tasks no one else could have completed with such panache.
My own dad's daughterly achievements this year include insect extermination, putting my tap back on the wall, occasional masonry drilling, washer replacement, flat tyre pumping, floating shelf assembly, regular tea making, consistent dad-joke cracking, and a general willingness to step up to the plate in the 
unpleasant task arena. Nice one pa.   
And being that dads are allocated just the one day per 365 to get an official salute, it's worth putting in a bit of extra dad-gratitude time this weekend. Come on in to Lulu and check out these

Here at the lulu's we are perenially on the scout for great locally made goods. for some reason, nail polishes have always eluded this section of the market. of course we love a good couple coats of opi as much as the next girl, but we wondered...are us aussies really just wearing but not making? 
So imagine our relief when Kester Black knocked on our door this week. That's right girls, feast your eyes...


melbourne made, and free of toluene, DPB and formaldehyde, and all those nasties that you don't want to wear on your hands. lovely!
