Got anger?

This morning I woke to the ongoing saga (only since last night I might add) of why my Samsung phone and my Outlook (on PC) could no longer access my iCloud emails. I have tried everything! First world problems I know! But at the time, it felt like the world was crumbling and it was…

A Story Bridge story

SooooooooOooooooOooooooo! My gorgeous man and I ticked another adventure off the bucket list this weekend! WE CLIMBED THE STORY BRIDGE and it was AMAZING!! Some awesome (and some not so awesome) facts about this fabulous feat of engineering history and the adventure climb: It’s the longest steel cantilever bridge in Australia and is heritage listed. The…

Sea Breeze Essential Oil Blend

There’s something about the refreshing scent of a cool sea breeze lingering past your nostrils. This essential oil blend is the closest I’ve found that brings visions of surf, sand and seagulls to mind while in the comfort of home. Try it out and let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from…

5 Ways To Keep Your Sphynx Cat Clean

If you’re owned by a sphynx cat you’ll know that they can be grubby little gremlins and seem to pick up dirt and grime wherever they go! What’s more, they are a very high maintenance breed and they’re a heck of a lot more work than a furry kitty. Thankfully, there are a few simple…

Damage Control

Feeling a little under the weather today I turned to my stash of bone broth I keep in the freezer. Like the good ole tales of yesteryear, there isn’t much a nice batch of chicken soup or bone broth can’t fix. I make my broths regularly (about once a fortnight) and keep them in mason…

Happy new year!

Wishing all of you beautiful people a very happy new year! I am lucky enough to have just come back from the beach at beautiful Harrington in NSW where I witnessed one of the most stunning firework displays I’ve ever seen, while in the arms of my lover. I am feeling truly blessed and my…

A jar full of memories.

Some of you may have seen this getting around social media over the last month or so but if you havent, it’s a memory jar. You start the new year off with an empty jar and every time something good happens you write it on a piece of paper and add it to the jar….

My inner warrior.

Today, my inner warrior reared her head. I was dropping my boyfriend off at the Brisbane International Airport. I was calm and was looking forward to 4 days to myself so I could finalise Christmas day plans. I was calm that is, until it came to the drop off… I inadvertently pulled into an area…

Today I made Kefir… Well, I think I did.

So today I made Kefir. Well… I threw it together a couple of days ago but today it actually looks like Kefir. In reality, I’m not really sure what Kefir is supposed to look like but I have a jug of what looks like curdled milk on my counter top and I’m calling it Kefir….

And you call yourself a blogger…

I’ve often wondered what prerequisites there are for calling yourself a “blogger”.  Is there a specific number of posts you need to make first? Is there a defined length of time before you can claim the grand title? In my mind, typically when I hear people say they are a blogger I assume they have…

You cannot be lonely if you like the person you are alone with.

The late Wayne W Dyer once or twice said “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you are alone with.” I have been lonely many times. One of those times, I was living in a new city where I hadn’t yet found employment and I had very few friends nearby. My boyfriend at the time was working on…

One happy day on repeat equals a happy life.

My last 2 posts were a bit dark and ranty and I’m feeling the need to talk about something happy. A long time ago, when I used to think of “happy”, it was a thing or a place I was looking for. Like it was a magical, mythical creature that would suddenly appear and all of…
