Somehow Eva’s birthday came and went and I forgot to keep a record of the festivities here. Oh dear! Better late than never. Happy birthday gorgeous girl. Thanks for making sure everyone is always laughing… you are heaven with a cherry on top!

Lazy gingerbread cookie houses!

I’m so happy with how these turned out considering we don’t have ‘Graham’ crackers here in Australia which nearly every cookie house on the internet used. So here’s my Aussie version. Instructions to follow pictures keep scrolling down! You’ll need: 1 egg white 1 3/4 to 2 cups icing sugar sifted Half teaspoon lemon juice…

The Dreamiest Quilts made for Dreaming…

Two nights at the Calile

Tourists in Turquoise Tallebudgera!

We just got back from ten magical days at Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park in Palm Beach. We landed at the Gold Coast airport and caught the local bus to the caravan park… what a treat we had in store for us! Our humble little cabin was right on the waterfront. Utter bliss! There weren’t a…

Daylesford Days

My mum was having a quiet few days in Daylesford over the weekend. Well we couldn’t have that could we? So I threw together about five hundred bags of stuff and the contents of our fridge and off I went with the kids to spoil that peace… sorry Mum! Day One. We unloaded the contents…

It’s not September school holidays without a trip to the tulip festival. I get so blown away by the beautiful colours every year, it never gets old! The kids are in it for the tractor ride, fairy garden and dutch pancakes. Fair enough really!!

A trip to Inverloch

What a fun-filled few days we’ve just had in the little seaside Victorian town of Inverloch. We stayed at the Big 4 caravan park which was in a fantastic location just a stone’s throw from the water with bountiful drift wood to keep the kids busy making forts. Well that’s when they’d actually let us…

Headshot Session

I had such great fun shooting some headshots for these two gorgeous business owners Lou (Zoanetti Consulting) and Lachlan (Remarkable Learning Solutions). They needed some relaxed and some with a slightly more corporate vibe. Mission success!

Hello Rollie Shoes!

It seems that finally, after years of not being able to find shoes in my size, shoe brands are stepping up and offering a larger size range! Hip hip hooray was my response when Rollie asked if they could send me some of their gorgeous Pantone x Rollie collaboration shoes. HEAVEN. So comfy, so fun!

Happy 6th Birthday Tissy

What’s a 6 year old’s idea of heaven? A cake covered in lollies! And a few presents too. Recently our darling Tissy turned 6. He is the very definition of kind, warm and gentle. I must have done something pretty special in a past life to have been given this gift of a human. Happy…
