I outsource household chores so I don’t lose my mind

I'm not sure I've ever met anyone THAT into doing the washing or cooking (every. single. night). Me either. A very strong ME EITHER. And that's why we outsource household chores. I'm not sure if you know but I especially hate the fact that when you do your dishes, almost immediately, there's...

I don’t know if you heard…

But as of two weeks ago, I am back working for myself 100% of the time! Eeeekkk. We made it, team. AGAIN. If you've been following this blog for a while (hands up!) you would know this isn't the first time. I had a cafe when I was 21 (craziness! Haha) and there was a time around 2011 that I worked...

Oh hey, 30’ish podcast

It's announcement time! Samara and I are relaunching our podcast, Suger + Ink as the 30'ish podcast. It's about that time right now where we are madly trying to pre-record some episodes and get everything set up to go. But before I go into all of that, let me tell you a little bit about the...

Are you ready to work for yourself?

Just last week I gave notice at my day job to go back working for myself full-time. Even though it's been pretty casual over the past year, this will give me the ultimate freedom to work in and on my business. I'm excited and nervous because you never can tell when you're ready to work for...

Sierra Burgess Is a Loser: a tale of fat girls

You didn’t think I’d let the new Netflix movie Sierra Burgess is a Loser go by without my comment, did you? Knowing my love of all things Netflix Originals movies, you can’t be surprised. Add in that it had not one, but TWO fat girl story lines in it and I was sold. Here’s why as a fat woman I loved it, and you should see it too. And not just for Noah Centineo.

So your kids want a digital career?

So, your kids want a digital career? I get that. There's a shift away from traditional employment happening. So maybe your child will be a YouTuber or eSports Gamer or any of the other hundreds of things people do online as jobs.  But I can help you, and your kids, be ready for this change. After...

Documentaries to watch on Netflix

There is only one thing I love more than a sports movie, that's a documentary or biopic. Real people, people with stories and lives. Lately, I've been working my way through the Documentaries section on Netflix and thought you might be keen to know what I'm loving. One thing, though. Last time I...

When Kate broke me

Recently I hit the road for a bit of work/play adventure in Mackay (and Proserpine!). I was heading up to stay with my friend Kate, maybe you know her, and attempt to be helpful in the home stretch of her renovation/visit. The second to last time I was in Mackay Kate broke a bone in her hand and I...

But WHAT do you do?

It comes up in conversation more often than I can count. People wondering what IS IT exactly that I do? I have a blog, for sure. But that can't earn me a living, right? (right! Haha). So with family Christmas card season just around the corner, I thought I'd make my Mum's life (and yours) easier...
