Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber recently did a charity collaboration for Covid-19, and the song “Stuck With U” is absolutely stunning. Gives me the feels! It is a tough one to sing, but I am obsessed with it so I … Continue reading This song will always take me back to the year 2020
Before the Term 1 school holidays, some of you may be aware that we have decided to keep the kids home even two weeks before school was officially closed due to the infamous Covid-19 pandemic crisis.

I never thought that my first post of 2020 will be this extraordinary… this year so far has brought on things we never even imagined we would experience in our lifetime. Earlier this year, Australia faced the biggest ever bushfire crisis. It was scary, and the scale of the disaster was just unbelievable. Thankfully, we got through that.

And now, whilst we are still recovering from that major crisis, comes this global pandemic crisis. We are now … Continue reading We Live in a New World #covid19 #coronavirus

We had that opportunity last school holidays, and stayed two nights at The Waves – the location is perfect! Directly facing Cowes beach, across the road from the playground, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. We had a fabulous time and … Continue reading Phillip Island, Victoria
First of all, I would like to acknowledge the fact that ANY parent – either mum or dad – deserves a break. Mums have it hard because generally speaking, the mums are typically the parent who spends more time physically looking after the kids and the home while the dads are at work. In this day and age though, a lot of the “normal” situations may look different. A lot of modern women have gone straight back to work after giving birth, and more and more stay-at-home dads are emerging, and not to mention the households with two mums or … Continue reading Mumcations for the Soul ❤
This one is a bit of a more personal post for me… and I’ve decided to write this because it has been a while since I properly jotted down my thoughts. It took me a long time to realize this, … Continue reading Happiness Comes from Within
My daughter went to a cooking & baking birthday party a few weeks ago at a play centre and whilst it was an amazing idea, unfortunately they weren’t prepared to cater for kids with allergies. So I brought her own … Continue reading Recipe: Dairy Free Choc Chip Cookies
Did I mention how happy I am that winter is over? Spring is officially in full swing, and the weather has just been glorious… well, as glorious as it can be for Melbourne anyway. Melbourne can be rather unpredictable, so … Continue reading Casey Food and Wine Festival 2019
