Kids Bedroom Inspiration

It is not secret that I love looking at kids bedroom ideas. There is something extremely fun and exciting about designing a space for a little one to explore every day- at least I’ve found it to be so! A bedroom needs to have the necessity of storage and a bed but then everything else…

Twenty Facts about Steph

Hi Guys! For those who are new here I wanted to introduce myself. I don’t think I have ever posted one of these “fun facts” posts. It was soooo difficult to come up with things so don’t be too harsh..ha! My middle name is Carmen. It is a tribute to my great grandmother Nana Carmen…

Low Calorie Falafel

You may or may not know that I am half Assyrian. My mother was born in Baghdad, Iraq. She migrated to Australia when she was 2 years old so most of her memories are from here in Australia rather than back home. My grandma was 27 years old when they migrated so “grew up” in…

Bedroom Update

I was explaining to a girlfriend this afternoon that I am itching to do a DIY/Home project. I know our bathroom renovation is off the list for a while (tears were shed writing that sentence) and I’m pretty happy with Ava’s bedroom and playroom.. so.. the next item on the list is our bedroom. I…

The Mum Uniform- In & Out of the Home

There are days when sitting in my pajamas and drinking coffee is all I want to do, but at 6am my alarm goes off almost every morning and that is when my day starts. My alarm doesn’t have a snooze button, it doesn’t even have a specific ring tone, it doesn’t get “switched off” or…

How to- New Years Resolutions

You probably looked at the title and wrote this post off. We have all seen an excessive amount of New Years Resolution posts. Generally the top of everyone’s list is: Lose Weight Make more money Buy a bigger house Buy a nicer car Take a holiday Change jobs Or at least something of that nature….

Christmas Weekend

We absolutely love Christmas time.. It’s an opportunity to take a few days off and just live life with family- no work.. no distractions.. This year was no exception- except I came down with a stomach bug/food poisoning for all of Christmas day and most of Boxing day. To top it all off, within hours…

Milestone Mission Potty

We have friends that have one baby and friends who have four. Us first time mums over-worry and over-compensate we probably over-research too. I also self reflect when I’m around mum’s who have multiple children- observing how they discipline or how they manage multiple children. How do they split their time? Do I like the…

My Favourite Podcasts

Working as a sales person part-time means I am on the road quite often for work. If you live in Sydney you know how chaotic the traffic is- it’s very organised chaos but still chaos. We live 22 minutes away from work when there is no traffic, but it can take me well over an…

Christmas Baking

Living in Sydney means our Christmas period is celebrated in sweltering temperatures. Even as I type this it is 44C or 108F outside. You can normally find at least half of the population at a beach sometime over the three days that are Christmas (Eve, Day and Boxing Day). I was born and raised here…
