I filmed a webinar yesterday

I was lucky enough to head to News Limited in Sydney yesterday to film a webinar for Kidspot’s Voices of 2014. You might remember that I won this title in 2012 (when it was called Kidspot’s Top Blogger). Anyway, the competition has grown so much and now they are producing fancy per-recorded webinars in the Fox Sports news room! Oooo-la-la. So, yesterday they asked me to chat about working with brands and how I do that. First, I got my makeup done. How often does that happen? NEVER! And it was so good. I was stressed out to the max about my skin graft which is still healing, but they covered it with good makeup and I wore my glasses…

Want to test drive a FORD for a week + raising money for Breast Cancer

This is PART 2 of the time I spent in Sydney at the Australian International Motor Show. Part 1 is here. After being so kind to me (and even putting a tow bar on my Territory so we can tow our boat on holidays!), Ford is still being nice to me and is letting me give YOU a Ford to test drive for a whole week! How cool is that?! You can pick it up, take it away and enjoy cruising around in it. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. It’s a game of skill so tell me why you want it. You can have fun with your answers, be serious… whatever you like. The only…

A day in my life, At Home, Kidspot Top5 Blogger

It’s Wednesday again : House update & Australian International Motor Show…

Hey there! Mid-week and here is a really quick house update. It’s not exciting, because it’s just dirt, but it’s super exciting for me! Plus, I will love looking back on the progress… Look at that! Retaining wall is almost done. This should be finished off today, then the plumbing goes in and the slab goes down early next week. Then I’m having a slab party (ie. a picnic on the slab)! I’m heading to Sydney later today for the Australian International Motor Show with FORD. They’ve invited me to be part of their media and I will be having some fun with their new cars and new technology. It’s not a contractual agreement because of my Kidspot car, but rather a cool gig they offered me as…

I’ve joined Village Voices on Kidspot

  I’m the newbie blogger on Kidspot’s Village Voices. I’m blogging at least twice a week over there and today is my first gig! Yipppeee! I have been coined their ‘celebrity blogger‘. Not ME being a celebrity (haha because that was D-grade of the 15 minute kind!)… It’s me writing ABOUT real celebrities. Every Friday I’ll be giving you the weekly twitter round-up and share with you my favourite tweets from celebs. Then on Tuesday’s I’ll be giving you a juicy celebrity story. If you hear of any goss, be sure to send it my way! If you don’t follow me already, you can find me on facebook and twitter too. I’m always on those! Come and see my first post…

My world has been turned upside down today!

I won! I seriously cannot believe it! I am so shocked, and happy and grateful. I want to thank you all so much for helping me WIN! All I know is that I won the Ford Territory for a year and I’m going to New York to BlogHer in 6 weeks (my husband is trying to come too!). Thank you to Kidspot for picking me! This is truly life changing for me in this blogging game. I am so excited. Thank you again and again! Now, I really hope 1 of my readers win the $5,000 cash! That’s announced at 3pm today. Ok, I’m off to make beds (seeing as my day started out really crazy!). X

Kidspot Ford Territory Top 50: A Woman’s Perspective

I missed the Territory the last week! I haven’t been able to drive it! It’s been parked at home feeling very lonely 🙁 This is my last challenge and then I have to hand the little darling back. Boo boo. But this has been so much fun. It hasn’t been a real ‘challenge’ as such. I’ve loved being a part of this competition. Today I have to write about the Ford Territory from a woman’s perspective… I don’t know about your house, but I know the majority of households who are in the market for a new car, would base their decision around what the female wanted anyway! We have a great deal of purchasing power (well I know I…

Kidspot Ford Territory Top 50: Childhood

Week 3 Challenge: I had a lovely childhood. I haven’t got too much to complain about. We were an average family. I don’t remember going without too much. Although Mum and Dad tell me they had to scrape everything every week to make sure we had what we needed. They did a good job. Mum stayed at home and Dad was a bank manager. We moved every 3 years or so. At the time I used to get heart-broken that I would be leaving friends. But now, when I look back, I didn’t mind it. I have friends from ALL over. I tell Mum and Dad now it’s their fault I keep buying, selling and building houses… ha! I can’t…

Kidspot Ford Territory Top 50: Day in My Life

This is a weekend in the life of The Chambo’s and a new Ford Territory. We’re real Aussies in the real world. We’re just like most other families running kids around on the weekend. The brief was to show everyone what you do in a day (I went with 24hrs). This is it! I think we’re a pretty typical family. There’s no sweet smelling breezes, gorgeous flowers and soft music where we come from. We’re all about livin’ the Aussie dream the only way we know how… Footy, Ford’s and Family. This is how we roll. This is what we did in 24 hours… SATURDAY SATURDAY NIGHT MOVIE SUNDAY – MOTHER’S DAY So our car took us many places. We’re always busy and always…

Kidspot Ford Territory Top 50: Passenger

Written because I’m a Top 5 Blogger and I want to win this car! As a part of the 4 week challenge I have been given a nifty Ford Territory to ride around in. My boys are being really really ridiculous about it. They think I’ve won the Lotto. Seriously! But I’m already over their fighting about who is sitting where. This baby is a 7 seater so it’s musical chairs. If you were watching us at school pick-up yesterday I do apologise for their behaviour. I have NO idea how I am going to give this car back. This car is brand spanking new! I’ve never had a brand brand brand new car before… I grabbed a coffee as soon as…
