Within 8 weeks of ‘being’ in my own business I realised I was becoming burnt out for the first time in my career.
I have worked in some high pressure situations & kitchens. From cooking for the Queens husband (His official title isn’t Mr King btw!), showed Christie McVee with from Fleetwood Mac how to properly roll gnocchi AND (I am totally gloating) had Kate Winslet tell me my duck salad was the best she has had.
The whole point in telling you this is that working by myself within 2 months nearly sent me to the looney bin.
One fundamental problem..... Come on over and have a read of this blog. Link in the bio.
I've got two very athletic kids and one who just isn't (for now - maybe forever). I giggled as I watched him hit the 800m tonight - poor kid had zero idea what he was in for. He's young for his age group and struggles to keep up. After tonight he decided he'll sit out Athletics this season and focus on his first season of Cricket instead. You know that feeling when you just ache for your kids to be good at all the things so they don't have to feel the pain/shame/disappointment/embarrassment? Then I tell myself - no, it's good for them to feel those emotions and I can't protect them from everything that's not wonderful. That's not real life. Motherhood is hard. Because we want only the best for our babies. Amiright?!
Photo may be confusing as it's of his sister 😜
I’ve made my own coconut yoghurt and it’s so easy! I used @trade_aid coconut milk and @innerhealthplus probiotics and drizzled it with glorious @heilalavanilla 💕
Head over to the blog for the how-to, the link is in my bio 👆
When was the last time you did a self breast examination? October is breast cancer awareness month, so I decided it was the perfect time to discuss the topic over on the blog. Included is an easy to follow clip showing how to examine your own breasts and also a chart showing what signs to look for.

Interior goals at the funkiest restaurant @thelulainn 🍃✨ I would also like to add that I ate oysters, for the third time actually. But this time they didn't have any batter on them so it was my first "real" time. This is a big deal for someone who is known as the "non gourmet friend who loves pizza, chips and pancakes." Look at me now 💁🏽💁🏽

Stopped for some burgerfuel on my travels today. These chop shop chicken packs are pretty hard to pass up.
Basically sone of the best fried chicken you can grab on the go. But I sat and did some colouring while I waited

Yesterdays cake I whipped up for my girls @becolson and Marita. Happy Birthday ladies!
This bad boy is a triple layer chocolate fudge brownie cake with layers of peanut butter icing and raspberries covered with dark chocolate ganache and fresh meringue. You can't really tell the size in this photo but it was one big ass cake! We didn't even get through a quarter of it at dinner 😂

Also - no one is more annoyed at my curly eyebrow than I am 😩Thank you to @nori.music for the use of your song In Love 😘

I've read only 1 book this year,but last month I finished 3--all by @kevinkwanbooks!
Singapore will always have a special place in my heart (lived & worked there for 9 years). To read about streets I've walked, landmarks I've been to and food I've eaten (because you cannot talk about SG w/o a serious convo about food), it was a good stroll along memory lane.
Those characters were so memorable and I'm looking forward to the movie!
Today I got out of bed, showered, made brunch, walked to the shops to get baking paper, made a pie, cleaned the kitchen, finished an assignment, watched Breaking Bad. This year has been tough mentally and most days just getting up feels like a lot of work, I rarely complete my to do lists and even getting a small amount done feels worthless. My uni work has really suffered because of this and when the black cloud is particularly thick it feels like I'll never move beyond this failure. I just want the happy productive days to be more consistent - I'm so tired of being tired.
I tell myself it'll get better once it's summer.
