Working in the Whitsundays ~~

By Sunday, November 8, 2015 0

This year the Cleo x Billabong range was inspired by the Pandanus trees in Byron, the tropical flowers of Bondi and the spectacular sands of Whitehaven so we thought where better to celebrate two iconic brands than in our very own backyard. The A team (consisting of the same crew I took to Bali last ...

Creamy Chocolate Cupcakes ~~

By Monday, September 21, 2015 0

This cupcake could also be named ‘Death by Chocolate’ – it is everything I love in one little morsel of goodness; spongy soft chocolate cake, Whittaker’s dark Ghana icing, m&ms and white chocolate coated Oreo cookies. I originally made these for my housemate as she needed cheering up and we all know chocolate stimulates the ...

Purple Power Salad ~~

By Wednesday, September 16, 2015 0

I stumbled across this recipe in the latest issue of Women’s Fitness magazine and just had to make it. My salads have been lacking in the creativity department as of late, and the colour of the rich purple cabbage just jumped off the page! Not to mention the almighty kale is another main ingredient. Part ...

My 12 Week Story ~~

By Thursday, September 10, 2015 1

A challenge is a great way to get some motivation if that’s what you are lacking, or to change specific habits you may have picked up, or even to tighten and tone some areas that just aren’t happening for you on your own. Please note I am not an expert, nor have extensive knowledge in ...

Gluten-free Ginger Slice ~~

By Thursday, August 6, 2015 0

I had to share this as my first recipe post, not only because it was the last thing I baked, but also because it just happens to be so damn delicious! It is from one of my favourite cooks, and she just happens to be Kiwi (bonus points). Chelsea Winter is a family favourite in ...

Big City Lights ~~

By Thursday, June 25, 2015 1

I am not much of a city girl – but I told myself I would explore as much of Australia as I could whilst living in this beautiful country. My best friend bought me tickets to Melbourne for a long weekend of city fun. Alas I was in the middle of my 12 week health ...

Oh, Oahu ~~

By Sunday, May 31, 2015 0

I have put off writing this post for a few months now; just really unsure how I would be able to give my trip justice in a few paragraphs and a few pics. But here goes… The day my boss mentioned I would need to go to Hawaii to chaperone some media my heart started to ...

An Egg-Cellent Easter~~

By Wednesday, April 22, 2015 0

I spent the Easter long weekend with my family who had flown from different parts of Australia and NZ for a holiday on the iconic Gold Coast and the Blues and roots festival held in Byron Bay. It’s not very often our whole family all get together, with my sister and her other half living ...

My Golden Bay Backyard~~

By Monday, March 23, 2015 2

Querencia (n.) a place from which one’s strength is drawn, where one feels at home; the place where you are your most authentic self. Sometimes when life becomes a little overwhelming you need to step away from routine and plant your feet back on home soil, to realign and refocus. NZ does this for me every ...

Happiness In Hikkaduwa~~

By Wednesday, February 25, 2015 0

We arrived to our hotel in Hikkaduwa to be greeted with a little left hand reef break right out front. I knew this was going to be another first….After sussing it out that afternoon we paddled out at sunrise the next morning – just Sarah and I, on a perfect reef break, in crystal clear ...
