Nature's Care giveaway

As a mum of four young children I rarely leave the house without a nappy bag filled with baby essentials. Nappies, wipes, a clean outfit, some spare dummies, a bottle of water and some snacks, a few toys and anything else they may need when out and about. Even though I have a big bag there is little room left for any mama must-haves so [read more]

Saving Grace giveaway

After many tiring days of looking after my sick family I was in desperate need of some quiet catch-up time before starting a new week, so while my lovely hubby took the big three to Bunnings and the baby had a nap I snuggled up on the couch with a new book.

I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise to you that becoming a mum six years ago meant the end of little luxuries for me, these days it’s just the kids that get spoiled and if I’m lucky I get a nice gift on Mother’s Day and my birthday but that’s it.

Bonds Boobicons giveaway

On September 26 hip daddy and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. We looked back at all we have achieved, admired our four beautiful children and dreamed about our future, a tree change, a big garden, some chickens and a goat. On September 27 I walked out of the doctor’s office with a referral for a breast ultrasound after a suspicious lump was found. I rang [read more]

Brides on a budget

As we celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary last week I took a moment to look back at our big day. I had only just moved to Australia and we were busy setting up house (as well as going through an expensive visa application) so we were a bit strapped for cash and planned our wedding on a tight budget. I wore a bargain USD $9 wedding dress, [read more]
