Talking teeth

Stocksy_txpd9b5281flNX000_Small_691056

Brought to you by Bupa. I’ve spent a LOT of the last fortnight in dentists. I’ve also spent a lot of money, but at this stage I’m just happy for my sweet girl to have her teeth and be out of pain. For those that missed, there’s a back story here, but in short Lacey had a trampoline accident and one of her adult front teeth was pulled out. It…

Photo A Day Challenge 2015 // Week 34

week34

Hey you. When the designer for this week’s photo a day list got in touch and told me she was going to SEW the list, I was a little gob-smacked. I’m not a sewer {like seriously, I can’t even sew a button on properly} so I just couldn’t imagine it. But Emma did it, and she did it well. How cool is it? Check out more from Emma over on…

Pick your brain: What do you do + How do you fit it in?

Feet of a woman wearing running shoes.

The weather is getting warmer {finally! Hurrah!} and I’m thinking more about getting out and getting moving. The area where I live is really small, and next to a busy road which has no paths and would be dangerous for walking on. When I lived in Bondi, I’d get up early and walk straight down to the beach and back and my exercise was done. I was so routine at…

Win 1 of 3 Bellabox Subscriptions

Brought to you by Bellabox. If there’s two things I love in life it’s mail and beauty stuff, so when Bellabox got in touch and asked if I’d like to collaborate on a Bellabox I jumped at the chance… like literally I jumped, and then I lay down… because, exercise. I love potions and lotions and things that make me feel good, but I can’t do a winged eye-liner to…

You’re a good mum

I went to the doctors a while back, because it’s winter and the germs be rampant. Lacey will generously bring home a bug, whinge her way through it, then Lulu will get it, whinge her way through it and then 6 days later Lacey will find another bug to bring home. Joyful, joyful. My usual doctor is off on maternity {Hey Erin! Yes, my awesome doctor sometimes reads my blog}…

No-bake Lattice Cheesecake Slice Recipe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA          Processed with VSCOcam with a7 preset

You’ve seen this no-bake slice around, haven’t you? I’ve seen it growing up. It was always at the parties my parents and their friends or our family had. It was always there. In all those years though, I never tried it. I don’t know why, because I certainly have a sweet tooth, but I think it may have had a radar for things a little more chocolate-y than this. But…

Hello! I can smell summer, and I think it’s thanks to this list. August, for me, has always meant that we get to say goodbye to the chilliest days of winter… and that the promise of summer is on it’s way. This list, it’s fun and summery, and getting me excited about warmer days. Thanks to Lea from Muska Elvis for her beautiful work. Check out more from her here….

Why you should never cheat on your hairdresser

Stocksy_txpca991e65WfW000_Small_673009

Last week I cheated on my hairdresser. I knew I shouldn’t. I bloody knew it. I was subconsciously trying to talk myself out of it, whilst simultaneously talking myself into it. You don’t want to be in my head. It’s NOISY. Oh come on, take a chance. You know this is not going to end well. But what if it DOES end well. What if this is the haircut of…

Letter to Luella: 23 months

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA          Processed with VSCOcam with a7 preset

My dear sweet Lulu, You’re 23 months. There comes a time, which happens to be around about now that mothers have to stop counting a child’s age in months. It confuses people, particularly men, when they ask how old you are and I relay your age in months and they’re like, “How old?” Twenty-three months. Not 2, and definitely not 1. This is the last month I can count your…

The weekend

t1_zps88bf2800

Each time I think about the weekend that just went by my hands immediately go to my head, and I feel overwhelmed, or mortified, or glad it’s over. Even more, I wish it hadn’t happened. Last week, on Friday, we buried my cousin’s son. It was the most beautiful funeral I’ve ever attended. He had so many friends and family, and it was really a celebration of his life, and…

Epic Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA          Processed with VSCOcam with a7 preset

I recently spent the day out at my mum’s house going through her recipe collection. I don’t know if it’s because I love food and I’ve been chubby forever, but I’ve loved flicking through her recipes ever since I can remember. Doing it again all these years later made me so happy and nostalgic. There were recipes there that have been passed down through her family, and I am so…
