Behind The Scenes Of A Youtuber

So recently I had the pleasure of having Jean from Photojeanic Photography come back stage and take a few behind the scenes shots of myself filming.
At first I was a nervous wreck, because I am very use to filming in an empty house (even to the point that I would literally send Tony out to run a few errands to get an empty home), but Jean made me feel so comfortable, as the shoot progressed I soon then forgot she was even in the room snapping away.

We also did another shoot of myself and Maddy having our usual baking session (which I will post very soon!).

I am so happy with everything Jean was able to capture. Thank you so much photojeanic!

These are just a few of the shots that were taken on the day. I am so happy with the results!



















Thanks so much guys for visiting!

Toddler Snack Ideas

We all know how picky toddlers can be, from who puts them into their car seat (mummy or daddy) to what they eat. It can be pretty stressful, especially when we as parents commonly use food as a distraction for our kids (giving them a bickie to keep them amused while we finish up our groceries - sound familiar?).
Here are a few snack ideas that I've found to keep my picky kids amused, full and satisfied.

Still alive.

I am still alive. Got a bit of a flu because of the seasonal change, but other than that I am well and living. 
My absence of three months has felt like a complete eternity to me - from taking leave of blogging and vlogging I felt so ... unproductive! 
The business of life has settled down and I am back to it. I am inspired with a whole book of lists on ideas and storyboards. I.am.excited. 

What better way to return than with a chatty episode on youtube about my March 2016 Favourites?! I hope you all enjoy this episode. Don't forget to subscribe to my channel to get frequent updates of when a new episode is uploaded CLICK HERE


I am so happy and itching as hell to be back! Thank you to everyone who has had their patience and have still stuck with me.

Do not just exist, live.

I'm a firm believer in 'new year, new you'. A new slate to start afresh.

Heck, why not? It's not like you'll (or anyone) will experience this year ever again. 

There's just something in the fresh breath of the beginning of 2016 that gives me the feeling that this will be a great year.

We will be forever searching for who we are and what is our purpose, but I feel that 2016 will make an impact, it will be a significant year where I will take steps closer to discovering my true self and what I stand for.

Reflecting back to 2015 I had found out so much about who I am, what I want and how to be responsible for my own happiness - that 2016 will be the year that I express it, expand it and do it

My 2016 motto? "The Year Of Adventure, Discovery and Change." Why? Because that is exactly what it will be. 

This will be the year where I take the leap, where I will go on adventures to discover the world, to discover myself, to discover life. This will be the year where I will make a change, no longer will I whine about this and that. Don't like it? Change it

Of course I have a bucket list for 2016. Why? Because what is life if you don't move towards something?

- Run 5km
Something I've always wanted to do but never thought I'd be capable of. I want to prove myself wrong and do it. 

- Try New Things
New year = New experiences. I want to give things a shot, stop saying no and start saying yes. 
Hiking? Yes. 
Run a marathon? Why the heck not? 
Snorkeling? Because seeing the sea is far better in person than on a screen saver. 
Workshops? From craft to random macaroon baking lessons - groupon sure is awesome. 
Yoga? I've always been curious. 
Swimming? It's about time I learnt how to.
Dance lessons? Because dancing alone in my room gets lonely. 

- Travel & Explore
Catch an adventure, eat foreign food and discover what the world is. 

- Swimming Lessons
Yes, you read right. I - a full grown adult, has ZERO confidence in the water. Throw me in the deep end of the pool and I'm a goner. 

- Lose Weight
Be Healthy, Be active, Be Lean, Be confident 

- Immerse Myself In Creativity
What greater gift is there than to express yourself through all forms of art. Painting. Drawing, Pottery, Photography... I want to do it all. 

- Quit Smoking... FOREVER
Because it's about damn time. 

- Ride A Bicycle... confidently.
Because it's about damn time. Haha. 

- Budget 
I've bought absolutely ridiculous things in 2015. 

2016 will be the year of doing, seeing and experiencing the things I've always wanted to. This will be the year guys! Have faith and just do it.
