I can’t believe I only have six days of work left until I start my maternity leave! What do you wish you did before your bubba arrived?
Packing isn't my strong suit. Don't get me wrong, I'm organised and almost never forget anything. My problem is I often over-pack. I always add in an extra dress or top, some sandals, or another jumper just in case. So I try to keep my skincare needs and beauty routine to a minimum when I... Continue Reading →
We recently enjoyed a relaxing and rather wonderful weekend away in the Blue Mountains with my family. The Mountains are incredibly picturesque, with pretty little towns around every corner. We love our visits to the Blue Mountains, NSW and I've written before about some other things we've seen and done in the area here and... Continue Reading →
I love to read and I always have. As soon as I finish one book you can guarantee that I am on to the next. My taste and interest in genres has changed over the years, but much like my taste in music, the type of books I read can depend on my mood. However,... Continue Reading →
One of my favourite places in Canberra to escape to, while getting closer to nature, is the Australian National Botanic Gardens. I have been visiting the Gardens on and off since moving to Canberra more than 10 years ago. But since my son was born, we have found ourselves visiting more often because it is... Continue Reading →

Since I started using two amazing products together I have barely worn foundation. That’s how beautifully they mix together!
Before we set off on our holiday to Hamilton Island I knew I had to get a few things in order first; number one priority (okay, maybe not number one, but it was pretty close) was dealing with my wintery white skin. Thanks to Canberra’s brutal winter, my skin hadn’t seen the light of day... Continue Reading →
It was about time for a little spring cleaning and the perfect place to start was my overcrowded, disorganised dresser. It has been more than two years since we moved and in that time it has been a bit of a dumping ground for all my make-up, skincare, jewellery, hair ties, bobby pins, pens, receipts,...

I pretty much always have at least one book on the go and as soon as I finish one then I'm straight on to the next. I have pretty much always been this way with books, but I was concerned having a baby would mean I wouldn’t have time to read for fun for a... Continue Reading →
Autumn is one of the most beautiful times to be in Canberra and the annual Canberra Balloon Spectacular is a big reason why. This popular nine-day hot air ballooning festival is one of my favourite Canberra events. In recent years, when we lived closer to the launch site at Old Parliament House, we would walk...
