Believe In Yourself

To achieve your dreams you need to believe in yourself. These are a couple of tips to help you get there

The date is set, the tickets are booked, the planning is underway. I am finally going on my overseas adventure, and I am so so so very excited because I’ll also be sharing it with my husband! Well, he will be my husband by the time we leave. I’ve had this dream of going and living in Europe for years, probably since high school actually. Then life got in the way and I never really had enough money or I created other responsibilities that would affect my ability to travel. But really, what it came down to was me making […]

Candied Walnut & Sweet Potato Salad

A delicious salad for any dining table

This has to be one of my favourite salads. It’s got that beautiful freshness from the greens, a vibrant contrast in colour with the sweet potato and then it’s got the rich flavour of the feta cheese masked by the sweetness of the candied walnuts and then all brought together with the tangy dressing. D-E-L-ICIOUS! This salad goes great with almost anything. We last had it with a simple piece of steak and it was it needed. It was also a big hit at Christmas, I had to make a second one for our boxing day ‘leftovers’ lunch. So much […]

Balls Head Reserve – Bushwalking in the City

The best of our City, get your walking shoes on and go and explore some of these fantastic walks that are so close to home!

Balls Head Reserve Balls Head Reserve is a unique experience in the sense that it’s like a true bush walk but then you come around a corner and there is the stunning view of the City & Sydney Harbour Bridge. The tracks are easy to follow but there are few steep climbs. For the more adventurous, there are a few older tracks that are a bit overgrown leading to beautiful lookout spots. But make sure you are careful!  We started our walk at the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability. Here you’ll find a cafe, markets (held on the last Sunday of […]

Concrete Stools – D I Y designer stools!

The Required Tools & Materials

The Inspiration About 6 months ago I was at a gorgeous little cafe and homewares shop up at Belmont, NSW and they had these concrete stools. They looked so good and I decided they’d make just as good a bedside table, so I added them to my project list and here they are. The Flaws The concrete stools I first saw had one flaw, the legs had fallen out and been glued back in. This got my mind ticking, trying to work out the best way to improve on this design. After many brainstorming moments, which usually tend to happen right […]

Yummy (Healthy) Pasta!

A healthy & yummy alternative to you standard pasta! Try it with any of your favourite sauces

So far I’ve been sticking to my goals! I threw out all the junk food in the house. Yes, threw it out, I’m proud to say I didn’t eat it. Such a strong moment for me. And I’ve been substituting certain meals with a healthier alternative. My favourite so far is Zucchini Spaghetti. I’ve had a spiraliser for ages. My friend bought one and never used it so gave it to mwa! It’s so simple to use and relatively quick, quicker than making pasta at least. The beauty of zucchini spaghetti as a meal is that you can use any […]

Achieving Your Goals

Goals

  Goals Setting goals is a very important part of getting through life and achieving the things you believe in. Be them goals that you consciously set or ones that just happen in everyday life. By setting goals you help yourself to succeed. Without goals you can lose focus and direction. If your goal is to become a millionaire, practice acts of charity, learn a new skill, or like me, rebuild your fitness and health you need a defined path to help you on your way. To simply say ‘I want’ and to think it will happen will always leave you […]
