Anzac Day

By Saturday, April 25, 2015

Today in Australia it is the 100th anniversary of ANZAC day. It is one of the most important national days as it marks the anniversary of the day Australian and New Zealand Soldiers embarked on a harrowing expedition to Gallipoli, Turkey. Over 8,000 soldiers lost their lives and will forever be remembered as the proud, courageous and brave men that ...

  • Organisation, the cupboard

    By Friday, April 24, 2015

    My sister lives in a great apartment but with not much storage space. I was over visiting her the other day and made the big mistake of opening one of her cupboards! Shock and horror greeted me as she had things everywhere, it was chock full of things she didn't need and there was absolutely no organisation what's so ever! ...

  • Organisation, food

    By Thursday, April 23, 2015

    Food planning is a big thing. It was something I thought only smug people spoke about in hushed tones to make you feel bad about picking up take away up on the way home! That is until I took half an hour out of my week to write my own, and have I looked back? No I have not. I ...

  • Organisation, photos

    By Wednesday, April 22, 2015

    I don't know about you but the one area of my life that isn't as organised as it should be is my vast collection of photos! I have them everywhere - in boxes, in drawers, in folders shoved at the back of cupboards…you get the idea! Some are in albums but most are in a huge basket collecting dust and ...

  • Organisation, my life

    By Tuesday, April 21, 2015

    Let’s face facts here - If I was not an organised person I would not be able to do what I do. I don’t have a typical average work day where I can get into any routine and get comfy with it. Everyday is different - some days I am lugging props around for functions, some days I am at ...

  • Real Housewives of Melbourne, Episode Nine

    By Monday, April 20, 2015

    We start episode 9 with Ben and Jackie, these two are crazy! I love how she uses the word couture all the time - it always makes me laugh so much! Jackie fills Ben in on the drama that was Manila - and what a drama filled trip it was! She explains how upset she was about Gina making fun of PettiFleur’s ...

  • Baby, christening

    By Friday, April 17, 2015

    After Chessie was born and the excitement of having a baby in the house was calming down - Bruce and I started to think about her Christening. We knew we wanted to be fairly traditional and have two godmothers and a godfather. After asking our very excited friends it was time to plan the celebrations! We chose the local church for ...

  • Baby, the dream shower

    By Thursday, April 16, 2015

    I have been so lucky to have helped create and be involved in many, many incredible events. And excuse me whilst I am being completely indulgent here but when my mind wanders to what kind of party I would throw as a baby shower for Princess Kate - my mind goes happily into overdrive. This is something right up my alley and I have let ...

  • Baby, the cot

    By Wednesday, April 15, 2015

    As we all know, when you are pregnant all you want to do is start planning your babies nursery! I was so excited to get started on what was going to be the most beautiful nursery anyone had ever seen. Bruce and I went down to Baby Bunting to look at all the things you do and don't need - of ...

  • Baby, welcome

    By Tuesday, April 14, 2015

    I am always excited when a new baby arrives and with the impending birth of Will & Kate’s new bub I feel no different! It’s not like they are close personal friends but I am not afraid to admit I am a sucker for scouring the trashy mags to catch glimpses of this gorgeous couple and that little boy of ...

  • Real Housewives of Melbourne, Episode Eight

    By Monday, April 13, 2015

    So tonight's episode starts where we ended last week still at dinner with Pettifleur and Gina going at it along with Jackie. Some gorgeous colourful language was used - a few hand gestures and off we go again. When these arguments start I think to myself - seriously, are none of us able to communicate in a civilised way without screaming and shouting? It really can ...
