Tell me all the things about Disneyland


On Sunday we fly to the land of magic, Disneyland. I’m equal parts excited, and equals parts can-not-wait-for-the-flight-to-be-over-already. I know we’re going to have the very best time once we’re there, and it’s we’ll be making life-long memories. You know, good stuff. One of my favourite things to do with travel now, is to ask the people who have traveled before me for their tips. So this is what I’m…

Five online courses to better your blogging skills


Hello Blogger. I want to always be one of those people that wants to keep learning, and I encourage others to do the same. I love discovering new things and letting them soak into my brain. I’m sure if I ever attended University I’d probably still be there learning things. Actually, strike that. I’m not that into learning. With blogging I love reading, and asking questions, and doing online and…

The lasts


Yesterday I took Lulu to the park and we took a stroll along the path. She stopped to pick up every stick in her path, and placed in to the pram. Every single stick. I don’t think she missed one. People walking by oohed at how cute she was, and inside my ovaries were nearly exploding. She’s just the cutest thing. As we headed back to the park to play…

A whinge.


I dropped my toothbrush this morning, and on any normal day… that would be fine. But I’ve done something to my back that makes me want to cry when I drop anything. I wanted to cry. Bending over to pick up ANYTHING has me making noises akin to giving birth. Getting dressed, shaving my legs, emptying the dishwasher, and unloading the washing machine are all tasks that make me grimace….

This is one of those slices that you had as a kid. In fact you might have bought it from one of those Cake & Slice stalls at your school. Perhaps your grandma used to make it, and she wrote in on a small scrap of paper {no doubt with some sort of floral print on it}, and gave it to your mother and now here you are… making it…

The Real Reality.


I don’t know if you know, but Kate gave birth to the Royal Baby over the weekend. If you don’t know… well I want to live where you’re living, because that must be very nice. And quiet. Anyway, Kate had her royal princess and she’s cute. I welcomed that baby news with open arms, because hasn’t the news been so much doom and gloom of late? That baby is cute….

Six oh-so-beautiful script fonts that you need to try


I’m a font freak, and I really mean a freak… every day of the week. Well not every day, but I like it. If I find someone using a font I like {or love} I can go near insane trying to figure out what it is. FONT MATTERS PEOPLE. Today I’m putting together six fonts I love. They’re kinda handwritten, scripty and really beautiful. They aren’t free, but they’re not…
