Backwards Menu Planning (for those who hate to menu plan)

Do you look at menu planning systems and printables and wonder why can’t I get my act together and menu plan? I’m a pretty organised, logical person, but I just can’t get it together to menu plan. I have a nice, organised shopping list, but the thought of sitting down with the recipes books and […]

Unicorn Free Motion Appliqué

My daughter needed some warm winter clothes, and I thought a cute hoodie sweater dress would do the trick. What do you do when it looks more like a pink Jedi robe than a cute dress? Ask your Instagram and Facebook followers what to do, of course. Thankfully, my problem solving social media friends (you […]

Life after Whole30 (It’s OK to fall)

I last posted about my Whole30 adventure when I’d reached Day 30. I had more energy than I’ve had in years, my brain fog had cleared and I felt great. That was 3 weeks ago, and it’s time to update you on how I’m going – my life after Whole30! This post contains affiliate links. […]

35+ Fox Craft Ideas

A few weekends ago, I had a cold and needed a quick craft project to cheer me up. I pulled out a fox brooch craft kit that came with an old edition of Mollie Makes magazine. I enjoyed this cute little fox craft, that I suddenly found myself searching for more fox craft ideas. There […]

Dyson V6 Absolute Review

Back in 2011, I reviewed the Dyson DC35 handheld vacuum cleaner. It was purchased by my husband, and I fell in love with it. When I was asked to review the new and improved Dyson V6 Absolute, I jumped at the chance. I just love a new vacuum! Our home has a combination of hard […]

How to sew a zip pouch {Tutorial}

A blissful afternoon for me is browsing the craft supplies at my local Spotlight (by myself!). I love finding new craft supplies, inspiring me to try a new projects. This week, I had a Spotlight gift voucher to spend and no particular project in mind. Should I try beading or jewellery-making? Maybe it’s time to […]

How to create a morning routine that works!

When I was in high school, I had a finely-tuned morning routine. My goal was to sleep as late as possible, but still get to school on time. I’d get out of bed at 8:10am, and be in the classroom door when the siren went at 8:50am (I was lucky have a 10 minute walk […]

How to sew a Mr Men Costume

Book Week is a big thing in Australia.  Each year, schools and public libraries spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators, supported by the Children’s Book Council of Australia. Lots of schools have a dress-up day and parade for the kids. My school hasn’t for the last few years (such a disappointment […]

Sweet Potato and Capsicum Hash

It’s Day 30 of my Whole30 challenge (yay!), and it’s time to share my favourite recipes from the month. I’ve mostly stuck with foods I typically eat, but put my creative hat on to add a bit more flavour. I’ve enjoyed the extra challenge to make sure I didn’t feel deprived. For breakfast most days, […]

Pedal for Pink Cycling Jersey

My darling husband is a MAMIL (Middle-Aged Man In Lycra). You’ll find him on the streets of Perth most mornings on his bike, in figure-hugging attire. It’s a hard thing to take, but is healthier than spending the evenings at the pub. I’ve learned to live with it! One of his cycling mate’s wife was […]
