What do you want more of in 2019?

A new year is a chance for a new start, and a time to focus on all the things you want to do, see, read, eat and try more of. After the craziness of the holidays I am keen to get back into writing. But before I jump in, I would really love to know…

Feeling fine with my fake tan

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…

The start of some serious spring cleaning

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,…

My cup of choice was the award-winning 12oz Original SmartCup from Frank Green. I love Frank Green products because they are Australian owned and…

Finding your new normal in 2018

A new year is natural time for reflection, but while it is important to look back on your achievements and challenges, a new year doesn’t have to mean a completely new you!

Christmas Lust List for 2017

When I put out the question recently about what type of articles you’d like to see more of there was a resounding call for a Christmas shopping list. Well, you asked for it, so I delivered and pulled together a list of Christmas gift ideas across a range of topics and price points. I totally understand…

Spring Fitness Challenge – Week Twelve

All good things must come to an end; we’re into the final week of my 12 Week Spring Fitness Challenge! I have loved challenging myself this spring and really focusing on my health and improving my fitness levels. I have swam, squatted, climbed a mountain, walked just about everywhere, planked, danced and done enough pelvic…
