International Women’s Day #whoruntheworld

international womens day quote

When I decided to write a piece for International Women’s Day I wasn’t sure where to start. There’s a lot of politics around this date but I didn’t want to have a rant about gender equality and discrimination – not because I don’t believe there’s something to be said here, but because I wanted to make this post a CELEBRATION of achievement and growth.  I personally just want to take a moment to reflect. In the past 12 months I’ve overcome a lot…

Healthy Gourmet Pizza: Kangaroo, Fig & Ricotta

Clean Eating Kangaroo, Fig & Ricotta Pizza

Did someone say Healthy Gourmet Pizza? Yup, I thought that might get your attention! Well, it’s one week down in our 6 week health and fitness challenge and so far so good! One of the things I love about this program is that there is freedom within the diet to eat food that we love, because everyone’s taste is different, right? So rather than have specific meals dictated to us, we have a listing of suggested ingredients (broken up into proteins,…

My 6 Week Body Challenge

Who else just got swept away in the wild torrent that was January? How does that even happen, one second we are shouting happy New Year and next minute it’s 02/16 and there’s EASTER EGGS in woolies… let’s chalk that one up as a practice month, shall we? Now, February, let’s talk. You did me a massive favour by starting on a Monday because it’s the ultimate motivator – new week, new month, new ME! lol. But seriously, I’m so pumped…

Sunday: Boho Style

On a stinking hot day last week I dropped into my local haunt for all things boho style, Avalon Island, and grabbed this gorgeous summer dress. I shop online a lot these days (and create e-commerce websites as part of my work) but there’s nothing quite like popping into a shop and having a chat, finding that perfect item, trying it on and then taking it straight home. This dress is so cute… except for when it catches the wind and you flash your…

Sayofuckingnara 2015

To say I’m glad to see the back of 2015 is a wild understatement…  To recap, hubby & I had MASSIVE dramas with a building development which has spanned the past 10 months and had to take our local Council to Lands & Environment Court – we lost – and the result has been a year wasted, a round the world holiday cancelled, an epic amount of money blown, and an outcome still TBA. Then August rolled around, it was my Dad’s 60th birthday and we went down…

YESVEMBER

To call 2015 “challenging” would be a huge understatement, it has easily been my most challenging year of adult life, and to be honest I can’t WAIT to slam the door on it and call good riddance. But, whether I like it or not, I have to get through November & December first. This got me thinking. Rather than write-off the rest of the year why not grab it by the freakin’ horns and DO SOMETHING. I have decided that…

Shake it off

So, things have been a little quiet on the blog front lately while I deal with some excess ‘kaos’ in my every day life, and rather than continue to leave this space blank I thought i’d share my strategies for dealing with the day to day stresses and learning (however unsuccessfully) to shake it off!   #1: PERSPECTIVE Put simply, everyone is going through their own shit & crappy things happen to good people all day everyday.  I’m not a glass…
