December is all about our Favourite Christmas Things!!!

So December is all about our favourite little things to love to share to drink and wear this summer festive season. My beautiful fellow suburban ladies of Queensland, I give you the must haves of December 2015!

oooo…. Before I forget, Did I mention we were going to give away some of these lovely toys?!!! Stay tuned to our Facebook posts for your chance to win something for yourself this December… And spread the word, you never know who you could be sharing with!!!



Have you ever wanted something light-weight, quick and easy to slip into after your morning shower, beauty / make-up regime before heading to the kitchen to make breakfast for your little ones? Something so easy to wear you can ensure porridge, toast, milk mouths don’t stain your nicely ironed work attire? 

Introducing Kaf-Tanned. Style, Comfort and a “must have item” of clothing that will allow not only a flawless spray tan to develop but an easy wearing garment for those chaotic mornings getting everyone ready before racing out the door to do drop off and ensure you are presentable at work.

I love it – those mornings when I wake up and I shower and don’t want to feel like a slob schlepping around the house in my pyjamas in the middle of the day.. So KafTanned is a godsend. I plan on looking trending trendy from the moment I wake up, and if I have to run out in the middle of the day to the grocery store or to the do the afternoon pic up, I’m going out in my KafTanned kaftan – just add snazzy sandals/slip-ons, handbag & sunnies. Perfect for a lunch with the girls or a quickie shopping trip. Let’s face it, this is Queensland – Hott!


As summer approaches, now is the perfect time to make some cool treats for you little ones, Wowing guests or for those afternoon coffee catchups with my favourite Lipsticks or Handbags. I love creating my own home-made ice cream, gelato, sorbet and frozen desserts from the convenience of my bench top with the Stand Mixer and Ice Cream Bowl Attachment.

The beautiful Vanilla Bean Ice cream is a definite crowd-pleaser, offering a twist on the traditional summer dessert with exquisite Aussie flavours! Be sure to follow my step-by-step guide to show you how to make it. Yum!

If you already own a post-1990 KitchenAid stand mixer, no need to buy another machine — you already have a great ice cream maker on hand. Just treat yourself to the ice cream-making accessory, which includes a mixer bowl that you pre-freeze, a dasher attachment, and a device to turn the dasher at $149.99 in DJ’s (David Jones, dontchya know), we think it’s a steal!


Ladies are you looking for a new addition to your cellar at home?

Christmas is around the corner and what better way to celebrate the festive season than with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc or a cheeky Chardonnay from MARKO’s Vineyard.

Born and bred in the wine industry, with Barossa blood pulsing strongly through his veins, Hill Smith has made it his mission to create the highest quality single-vineyard wines on the market. Most recently, he released his own oakless Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc: two exciting and individual wines made using fruit grown in the high-altitude cool climate of his 23-year-old vines in the Adelaide Hills.

Marko’s wines are available throughout independent retailers, online at, as well as at an extensive list of top-tier restaurants and bars. As one of Australia’s leading Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc producers, Matthew Hill Smith’s expertise becomes supremely evident after the first sip of his lovingly produced vintages.


Do you love picnics with the girlfriends and their little ones at the local park? I do!! Especially in summer, getting outside in the fresh air, plenty of sunscreen and sunshine.

Well ladies, my new found favourite thing is featured from Bed Bath N’ Table.  The hamper picnic basket in French grey/charcoal is the ultimate accessory for this summers picnics. Featuring 12 pieces of white cutlery, 4 wine glasses and 4 ceramic plates, it’s the cutest package which I’m sure you’ll fall in love with as I did! Its normal retail is $99.95, however it’s on sale for $74.95, a sure steal at that price.

This picnic basket features a fully-lined, red and white plaid interior with a sturdy willow construction, premium leatherette accents. I especially love its versatility and design with plenty of room for containers of fruit, sandwiches, cheese, biscuits, water, wine, wine and did I say wine.

What are your favourite things to pack in your picnic basket ladies?


When four generations of the Cooper clan come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down.

Weddings, Christmases and family vacations take us to the folksy heart of the Hollywood comedy. Grudges are indulged, secrets are bared and tempers flare but love has invariably prevailed by the time the booze runs out. Starring De Niro, Hoffman, Streisand and Keaton who all have their own defining eccentricities bring plenty of entertainment to this film.

Its a heartfelt Christmas movie built around a standard of assortment of crises and cover-ups, even the family dog has a part to play handling the over narration. Plenty of juicy gossip to liken within your networks, a great movie to share for date night with your Babycakes or for an afternoon with your best girlfriends. I’m sure you’ll love it, here at the Betty Butter Blog we certainly did!

I’m Betty, and Butter is a story of a full-time suburban SAHM ( Stay-At-Home-Mom) who practices Medicine in her spare time. My life heavily revolves around Babycakes, my husband, Bobby and Ben, my children and an acerbic tongued pug D’Artagnan.
