Reflection

Let me start this blog post with a disclaimer. I am currently nursing a newborn. I have had approximately four hours sleep in 48 hours. My four-year old daughter is having a Disney dance party in our living room at this precise moment – I have heard ‘Let  It Go’ fifteen times in a row.

Motherhood

I have always felt connected to the month of May. There is something about this month that fills me with happiness and hope. My husband and I got married in May. We chose the month as one of our favourite seasons is autumn. Canberra is truly spectacular in autumn. Our wedding was a reflection of

Nesting

Entering the month of April, I approached my last month of pregnancy and I was officially in the nesting stage. I spent the month sprucing our home for the arrival of our second (or third, if you count our beagle, Sherlock) baby. Amidst all the tidying, cleaning, decluttering and redecorating I [...]

Market Vibes

It’s November! The end of the year is nearly upon us and so to is the festive season. With Christmas around the corner, Christmas markets are a plenty. Since I had spent most of October somewhat of a recluse I decided to commit to participating at a few very special Christmas markets. I do enjoy

Authenticity

The past month has been challenging. At the beginning of the month I had somehow found myself utterly lost. After having some incredible adventures in August and September, with the launch of Charlie’s Adventures…in South Africa and book tours both virtually and overseas, I felt I had come down [...]

Behind the screen

September is one of my favourite months of the year because with it comes a spectacular change of season. Spring has officially blossomed. Spring is a magnificent season, flowers start to bloom, the days get longer and animals awaken. In the radiant spring sunshine, I could feel myself awaken [...]
