6 bad Feng Shui elements

Broken things Get out the super glue, find the Allen key, repair that leaking tap, change the light bulb… You don’t want to unnecessarily attract broken or damaged energy, so make sure you keep on top of home maintenance. When you ignore broken things you’re not attracting abundance. When you DO pay attention to broken items you’re setting your intentions to fix things, move forward and not be in a spot of neglect. … Dried arrangements Remove any old dead plants or dried arrangements. I know they can look good (like the above picture) but these dust-catchers represent dead, stale…

Kmart Memes + Workshops

Kmart is still producing the goods, and the memes keep coming. I love them! They make me laugh when I see them pop up on Instagram. Today I thought I’d put a few together + tell you about Kmart Australia’s Inspired Living Hub. This Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Top Ryde City shopping centre Kmart will reveal its latest spring range, with eight different living pods, styled into life-like zones. Also occurring will be a series of “hack workshops”, set to showcase Kmart Australia’s Living team’s creative ideas and tricks of the trade for the home. More details are below but oh how…

Stunning Sunday

Stunning Sunday: A former steel factory for sale in Fitzroy North, Melbourne

I can’t go past a warehouse/factory reno. I have always been in love with them. This one is no exception. It’s currently for sale in Fitzroy North, Melbourne. The facade is perfectly rustic and well maintained. The courtyard made me want to peek inside… A versatile floor plan over two generous levels incorporates a vast living/dining room opening to a walled courtyard oasis with water feature pool; bespoke kitchen with premium appliances, ample cabinetry and integrated wine fridge; large 4th BR/home office with own street entry; 3 BRs (spectacular main with luxury ensuite & dressing room); family bathroom, powder room…

Raising Boys

If you’d told me back in my early twenties that I would be living in a male dominated house I would have burst out laughing. I sometimes look at my 3 boys and have to pinch myself. I mostly spend my days refereeing punch-ups (there was a really good one here during the week which I videoed – saving that for a 21st!), serving food and sitting in the car at football training… I feel like we’re at a really good stage with them though. My eldest is 14 and a half, my middle one is 11 and my youngest…

Floor Plan Friday: 3 bedroom, study, u-shape

Hello there! Today I have this 3 bedroom u-shaped home to show you. Maybe you’re thinking of downsizing, or simply don’t need a huge home with all the bells and whistles, but still need it to look amazing? This plan has a raised ceiling and good flow. The home is best built facing north to optimize the solar aspect and creates a warm spacious feel. The website has some interior shots of you want to check it out. It’s stunning! You can see more of the plan here, or check out all of my other favourite plans over here.

There’s nothing better than a platter!

Brought to you by Always Fresh. I’d easily have a “platter” for dinner instead a proper meal. I love kicking back on a weekend with a mixture of cheeses, biscuits, olives, sundried tomatoes… anything that looks good mixed up on a big cheeseboard! On Sunday my husband took one for the team and did the footy run with the kids. They played out of town and I stayed at home and spent hours cleaning, washing and grocery shopping. Our house was in dire need of some attention before school started back again. I decided to also make a huge platter…

A day in my life, Crohn's Disease

Hit the ground running…

School is back and holidays are over. Actually, I am happy to say they weren’t too bad and we got through them unscathed. I woke up yesterday dreading the fast-paced days ahead with school drop-offs, pick-ups and all the after school activity… But it was time to get back to work. I had a full inbox and blogs to makeover over, websites to complete, this blog to take care of and houses to sell and style! But in amongst all of that I’ve had a few medical things to sort through. I’ve written about my Crohn’s heaps of times, and…

Good things on the internet

My boys are still on school holidays today – they go back tomorrow – so this morning I woke with a purpose… to go through all of my emails! The last 2 weeks I’ve been hit and miss with reading them – only answering the important ones, but today I knew I needed to get on top of them. In my list of emails I always get sent cool press releases, information or links to good things on the internet… 1. T-Leaf Collections featuring on-trend homewares – especially these Memory Drops (#MemoryDrops). They are the perfect way to hang your most…

A city break + another year older

I turned another year old yesterday. 39! Yep, that means the big 4-0 next year. Wowzers. I’m ok with that, although I will savour one more year of being in my 30’s for now! We had a couple of days in Sydney to celebrate and have a break away. Sorry about all the blue sky photos, but what can I say… Sydney really turned on the sunshine for my birthday! We walked and walked and walked. My nephew said we did 14,000 steps in an afternoon! Darling Harbour, the city and then we went up in The Sydney Tower. I…
