Welcome to 2017 – From my Favourite Place on Earth

Hello! Welcome to my first blog post for 2017 – the year I’m hoping to give a lot more love to this little online space. My family and I have just returned from our annual pilgrimage to our favourite place on earth – Moreton Island. Moreton is amazing for so many reasons – it’s relatively inexpensive with lots of different styles of accommodation options, it’s stunningly beautiful and there are heaps of things to do (or not, the choice is yours!) BC (before children), we’d load up the 4WD with every camping accessory you can imagine and rough it on the beach. These days we go for the Glamping tents at Castaways. These are permanent tents set up with proper beds (comfortable, and no air beds going flat during the night!) and a full en suite with hot water. It really is camping done right. There are fridges for your food and drinks and a full communal kitchen and eating area, so you can pack light.   My children love camping and love the beach – so to say we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves would be an enormous understatement! Tell me, where is your favourite place on earth? Are you a happy camper? Have you discovered Moreton Island? Lily...

Reformer Pilates + La Sculpte 

Hi, how are you? No really – how do you feel? How does your body feel? Do you have enough energy? Do you feel like, well, yourself? About this time last year I asked myself those questions, and when I wasn’t happy with my answers I knew I needed to make a change. I decided to try reformer pilates at Rebalance Pilates and Yoga and I’ve loved it so much that almost a year in, I’m still regularly going two to three times a week. Yes, it’s hard to fit in around family, work and general life stuff. Yes, it is an addition to the family budget. But here’s my top 3 reasons why it’s so worth it for me: I have so much more flexibility to bend up and down from the floor to play with my children. I’m physically stronger and my mind is more calm and centred. I’ve lost around 8kg (give or take – it is the silly season after all!). La Sculpte recently sent me a couple of pieces from their activewear range to try. I chose the Cross Back Tee in purple ($32.99) and the Shaping Printed Full Length Tight ($59.99). I couldn’t go past the back of this tee for a cute point of difference, and the ‘shaping’ part of the tights really sculpts the tummy. I’ve worn a lot of different activewear labels in my time – from the really expensive to the really inexpensive – and La Sculpte for me rates highly in terms of quality and affordability. These pieces are comfortable, breathable and under $100 for the set. Is it time you tried reformer...
