Whether you're passing through Geelong, traveling here for a visit, or you actually live in the area and want some inspiration - Well, I hope you come across this blog! I put it to the people of Instagram, about their personal choices of places to go and things to do for Geelong with Kids. And … Continue reading Getaway – Geelong Style
In our house we have 'Piss Easy Pasta' nights which consists of supermarket garlic bread, and that packet ravioli and pre made sauce - A 10 minute job at most, but delicious and always a crowd pleaser on a busy night. I've never made Pho before but I definitely didn't think it would fall under … Continue reading Piss Easy Pho
Does anyone else skip lunch A LOT? Breakfast - huge advocate. Dinner - couldn't go without. Lunch - eh. Recently I've started to actually put an emphasis on lunch for myself because I got super lazy and snacky, and I figured I couldn't be the only one. And since everyone loves a food inspiration post, here … Continue reading 5 Quick and Tasty Lunch Ideas
It's Marathon Foods times again! As you guys know, I've been working with this company for a long time now, and regularly eat their meals. Hands down, one of my favourite moments is when we simply can't be bothered cooking, and can't justify getting take out and we realise - hey, we have Marathon in … Continue reading Hunters Birthday x Marathon Foods
I've been making this gnocchi since I came across the recipe when I was content writing for a company a few years ago. I joke not when I say it is so quick to make, and only has about 5 ingredients - plus the kids love getting involved too!
Fathers Day is almost here, and although buying gifts for 'dads' can sometimes be hard, I find it quite easy for us. My husband is the kind of guy who will tell you exactly what he wants when asked about gifts - and he hates surprises! He often needs new tools, or parts for his truck, and will never ask me for socks and jocks. I also have to give him exact present ideas for myself, because once year he got my a frying pan and he's never lived it down. We now have a rule - NO household appliances for personal gifts! I don't care if its a $2000 cooking apparatus, if it makes your dinner too, it's not my birthday present.
For Geelong based families, Avalon airport is a god send, but only if you want to travel domestically with one carrier. Otherwise, we have to trek it up to Tullermarine and the combination of distance, flight times, parking and/or bus transfer times can make things stressful and expensive. I've teamed up with Murrell Group, a … Continue reading Quality Transport Options in Geelong
Bonnie is one of my best friends in the world. I've never connected with somebody like her, and I'm so honoured to share her birth story for baby Daisy. I wish I could say that Daisy’s birth story began with a bang; that my waters broke on someone’s foot in the middle of Woolworths; that … Continue reading Bonnie Leggett: Daisys Birth Story
Smash Enterprises and I have had a long love relationship - They've been keeping my house full of snackalicious plastic containers, drink bottles and coffee containers for years (much to my husbands minimalistic dismay). When they asked to decorate my office though, the time finally came for me to personally benefit. I chose the 'Paint … Continue reading Paint and Play with Smash Enterprises
Looking after my health when I'm busy (and in general) is something my mum has always instilled in me. Instead of telling me to take cold and flu tablets, she would recommend echinacea, hot lemon drinks, and anything that was considered 'hippy'. Now as a mum myself, and one who wears so many different hats … Continue reading Keeping healthy with Caruso
