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
I love skincare and makeup, there's something so satisfying about cleaning your skin and then adding 25 layers of lotions and potions (before you even get to make up!). I might not be very good at it but that won't stop me pouring over anything our Queen Zoe Foster Blake writes, cruising beauty blogs and … Continue reading B-E-A-U-T-Y time with Artistry
Yep - you read it right. My husband ghosted me. No, we are not fighting/divorced/at loggerheads. In fact, 5 minutes before he ghosted me he was in the kitchen whispering sweet nothings in my ear as I laughed and pushed him away to mind the kids in the bath. Last Saturday night my husband was … Continue reading The Night My Husband Ghosted me
A friend of mine recently started a small business in Gift Boxes - but not just any gift boxes. No, she collates and collects a variety of gorgeous hand crafted items from other small australian businesses, expertly packages them up and posts them out to you. From the original 'Loola Loves Box' which holds 11 … Continue reading Loola Loves Gift Boxes
Courtney Amelia is all kinds of inspiring. I first read about her when a GoFundMe page was set up last year because Courtney sadly found out she had a brain tumour. She is now a brain surgery survivor, ultimate fit mum (and fitness model!) and one hell of a lady. Make sure to check out … Continue reading Interview with Courtney Amelia
