Its Mother’s Day on Sunday! Many mums look at their lives and analyse how they’re doing in their role as a mother. Some days I feel great about motherhood.  Other days I thank God we all survived the day!  Most days I move through the day feeling cool and calm like ‘Mary Poppins’, other days when I feel overwhelmed and out of sorts I feel...

It turns out, ‘simplifying your life` isn’t as simple as I thought it would be. One of my personal goals for this year is to simplify my life. I am chasing a slower and a more meaningful life. My ultimate goal is to live a life based on good decisions and values, spend as much quality time with my family and friends, and do all of those things I personally...

Recently, I listened to one of my many favourite podcasts ‘Straight and Curly’ with kelly Exeter and Carly Jacobs, who were talking about how important it is to have hobbies.   At the time I was quick to react with some quick ‘I don’t have time for any hobbies!’ type of remark. And then I had a moment of feeling blue, until it suddenly...

Last week a friend of mine and I attended the ‘Embrace’ documentary movie at the Maroochydore Cinemas. I love a good documentary movie.   That is, a documentary that takes you on a journey to understanding.   A journey to see life from a different perspective.    Taryn Brumfitt, the woman who made the documentary movie, really is amazing.  The reason...

Well, I must say that I have been thinking about this blog post for a while.   In fact, I have tried to write it numerous times, and every time I try I get the giggles because I am very much a work in progress.   I believe in the sentiment of making time for myself whole heartedly, but I often find it difficult to put the concept of ‘ME TIME’ into...

If you’re a mother, you will have times when you feel intense overwhelm. Sometimes you will experience this overwhelm on a daily basis. We desire to be ‘Warrior women’, but instead some of us feel like ‘worriers’.  We quickly learn that there is so much more to being a mum than just surviving pregnancy and giving birth.  It fact, we...

I’m not sure when it started, but at some point in the last six weeks,  I started asking our girls each day if they are bringing their game to the table today! I mentioned it to my friend recently when she asked me how I get my kids motivated for school each day.    All I know is that whenever I ask this question, the kids work well, and when I don’t...

Let’s meet Chanel. Over the last week or two,  I have been talking on facebook about my youngest daughter Chanel.   She’s our fashion conscious style guru here at home.   She has an eye for detail and a love of all that relates to fashion – clothing, hair, make up – oh and accessories!   You should see her looming! Last weekend we went down to Brisbane to celebrate three birthdays, and our Chanel was one of the guests of honour.   You can only imagine how excited she was to be ‘a guest of honour’...
