Oobi Fashion for Girls Autumn Preview 2017...


One of the many joys of having a young daughter, is the opportunity to dress her! Clothing for little girls is abundantly varied, colourful and pretty, and after a long break between our girls, (there are four boys between them!), it's so lovely to have these precious moments over again. 

Seeing your girl all dressed up is something that brings happiness not only to your own child and yourself, but to others too. I can't recall the number of occasions where we have been stopped on the street on account of the outfits worn by our youngest. It's plain to see the happiness bright fabrics and adorable designs on a young child can bring.

Celebrate This Easter and Beyond With New Release Miffy Merchandise!


It's hard to believe that the iconic Miffy stories we're all so familiar with, were first penned over 60 long years ago!

Way back in 1955, Dutch artist Dick Bruna created his multi-generational endearing bunny character Miffy. Her magnetic cuteness and longevity have stemmed from a winning combination of Bruna's simple, colourful illustrations combined with a childlike sense of adventure. It's a marriage which has seen the books continually loved the world over to this day.

Easter Baking With Kitchen Warehouse - A Delicious Chocolate Mud Cake Recipe


As a dedicated home-baker, I am always keen to have a playdate with my own kitchen. The art of regularly churning out sweet treats for my family, daily, (from muffins, cakes and cookies and other delicious treats) is a task I quite naturally enjoy. For me, the entire process of cooking - from the recipe creation itself to the coveted moment when my kids taste the (hopefully!) delicious results, is truly a rewarding experience.

Easy Freezer Meals for Very Busy People from Weight Watchers...


This post is sponsored by Weight Watchers but all thoughts and opinions including meal suggestions are my own.

With the school year well underway now, I have an early confession to make: I have been eating poorly - especially at lunchtimes!

Now that there are few children to care for during the weekday timeslot, eating just seems to fall into the background. As a mum, I am thoroughly immersed in my work, home duties and the care of my preschooler. On top of all those daily to-do's, the value of food to fuel it all just seems to fall by-the-wayside.
I bet that sounds familiar to you too.

Wild Science Blood n' Guts Zombie FX Lab Review and WIN!


Thankfully it's rare that I wake on a weekend to the sight of an eight year old boy looming over me menacingly, wearing a set of scientific goggles and equipped with a pair of rubber gloves encasing his wriggly fingers. Add to that frightful get-up, a gleeful and excited-like stare (something reflecting a weird combo of begging meets thrill), and you can bet I was just a wee-bit caught off guard.

Believe it or not, that was my introduction to my Sunday morning on this weekend just gone! #Parenthood

Healthy Snacking for Active Kids with Organix...


*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Organix Goodies.

Kids are busy people aren't they! I am always amazed (and a little envious) at just how much energy my own children have. From the moment the sun comes up, they're out of bed and moving at an incredible pace for the remainder of the day - often into the night. Trying to keep on top of all that activity (and associated mess) is exhausting as a parent. For me, just watching them alone, is a thorough workout!

Philips Grain Master Review - Family Meals Made Easy and Simply


With a large family to cater for, I am forever on the hunt for shortcuts when it comes to hasty but healthy meal preparations.

There's nothing quite like the convenience these modern benchtop marvels offer, especially for throwing together a decent meal with little time or energy at your disposal.

My Super Nanny Review - Our Brilliant Babysitter Agency Experience!



There can't be too many parents who don't dream of employing a nanny in their busy lives to take care of their little charges.
Even the convenience of a babysitter once in a while, to fill the need as required, is an all-to-common fantasy for most and for a variety of valid reasons.

When it comes to sourcing a reliable, qualified, trustworthy and experienced sitter to take care of your kids, it can certainly be a task with cause for concern: Where can a great sitter be found? Will they be affordable, experienced and on-the-ball with your precious children? Can they cope with a multitude of harrowing situations should they arise, such as sibling in-fighting, accidents or emergencies?
And finally, for the kids' sake, will they be fun and a positive influence?

Chocolate Almond Crusted Berry Cake Recipe (Traditional and Thermo Methods)


Wow! A recipe to share! It's been a while...

Now that the school year has commenced, the need for daily baking has returned full-swing in our home. It was great to have a long six weeks off, pretty-much ignoring my kitchen in favour of swimming, resting, outings and movies with our kids during the summer break.
(And sleeping. There was lots of that going down!)

Once those new year lunch boxes need filling though; Every. Single. Day... that's when I know the holidays are officially over. Sad face.  :(
It's time to get on the 'routine' treadmill again.
Still, I consider baking fun so I am sure I will get over it - and into it, pretty quick-smart.
