Lamington Love

A few days out from Australia Day and I decided to hunt for the perfect lamington! I was a little late with this thought - but I think I still did an excellent job taste testing around the Highlands finding the perfect Aussie Day treats.We are so lucky to have an array of small businesses that make absolutely cracking food in the Southern Highlands, NSW. So here we go.....  Ms Peacocks Fine Chocolates made an ode to the lamington - a la marshmallow! The Glamington. Vanilla bean and raspberry marshmallow, dipped in milk chocolate and coated in coconut. Giving off...

Solo Trip

Solo Trip

Maybe this seems trivial to you, but this was a gigantic leap for me.First solo trip away. Just to Brisbane, but interstate was enough for me....for now!I’m incredibly dependent by nature and sit in the passenger seat on holidays (both figuratively and literally!) - and if I’m honest with myself - in life as well. I made a list of small things to do by myself, and have slowly been ticking them off. A meal by myself, movies by myself, a local retreat by myself - and now a holiday.3 nights with me, myself and I. DAY ONE was a travel...

It’s obviously been brewing subconsciously for the past decade and decided to pop out when I made the decision to enter my 3rd decade with a bang!    So I had a few basic ideas (serving cocktails in teacups has always been on the list!), but once I got Pinterest-ing I just went crazy!

I don’t even know what made me start blabbing on about self sabotage over on my stories, but once I got started, I couldn’t stop! I got so much engagement from you guys - stories, questions and comments - that I feel this is something that needs to go on the blog.    Before I even begin (well thats a lie - I already started!!) I will remind you that I’m not a health professional in any way, shape of form. I am an Early Childhood Teacher working as a nanny, giving me zero professional standpoint on this subject -...

Squat Proof Tights

Squat Proof Tights Seriously, it’s beginning to annoy me. Why do brands bother releasing tights if they’re not going to stay up when you train or, even worse, go completely sheer when you bend over. Whyyyyyy!?  I cant put a number on how many pairs of tights I’ve returned over the years because they fail one, often both, of these big tests.     Im not here to name shame, but most brands, even the big successful ones, have this problem.        Ok - let’s start at the beginning! Early January I put the question out on my Instagram...
