Recently I went away to Byron Day for a girls weekend, and knowing I would be drinking the Classic Margaritas at Miss Marg's like it was nobodies business, I started a 1 day juice cleanse the day before I left. Slightly dubious, as I don't like to buy into anything that is all about weight … Continue reading Downtown Pressed Juice Co
This next person I've interviewed is someone I've fan-girled over since Hunter was 26 days old, to be precise. I met Sally on the Kids Ward at the hospital where she works as a nurse when Hunter was admitted the first time, and she's been the most invaluable source of knowledge and comfort since, allowing me to keep in contact with her and asking her a million and one questions! It turns out Sally knew who I was from following The Bean Bible, as she owns her own amazing custom artworks and prints business Love Lennox and I also followed her! It wasn't until I asked her to interview with me that I made the connection that she was also married to a Supercats star that this little basketball fan 4lyf had watched play for years! SMALL world Geelong. SMALL world. Sally has two boys – Xavier who is 4 and Noah who is 2 in May and I'm almost certain she has some sort of super human powers or at the very least is fuelled purely on caffeine!

Alanna is the (looks and) brains behind The Locavorium, a local artisan food hamper company. Alanna grew up in Maude (a tiny little … Continue reading Our interview with Alanna Holmes
When given the chance to work with Itchy Baby Co , we obviously jumped at it - Evie's eczema has plagued us since she was a few months old, and though we had it fairly under control with the elimination of lactose, it has been going through a rather large flare up lately. Itchy baby … Continue reading Itchy Baby Co
Samantha and I went to my first High School together, although a few years apart so we didn't really know each other. When we connected through Social Media years later, I couldn't help but be transfixed with following her career. At the time she owned a relationship consulting business in Melbourne with her husband, was … Continue reading Our interview with Samantha Krajina.
Thanks to one of my best girlfriends for inspiring this blog piece after a discussion about the 'joy' of childbirth. Warning - pictures of post cesarian wounds. Cesarians - still taboo? I can't see why. Vaginal or cesarian, childbirth is childbirth and each comes with their own set of pros and cons and possibly complications. … Continue reading Stitches vs Staples
Really throwing back to the roots of The Bean Bible and sharing some of my personal experiences - I'm here to tell you a bit about our sleep struggle with Hunter. It could help you, it might just be an insight into us (you nosy parker) and it may just be a time filler while you … Continue reading Our sleep struggle

So Evie has never really been a TV kid, she's much more of an outdoors lady - which obviously suits me just fine, but sometimes a mum just needs to have a coffee and a shower and a second of peace. And so I persisted with some Disney JNR and she came to love Mickey … Continue reading 5 (mostly inappropriate things) I think about when watching The Wiggles
