When I worked on the tools, I used to have 5 items in my pockets. I would have my Oroton coin purse with my essential blue card, licenses and credit cards, my mobile phone, a pen, notepad and lip...
The problem with many home update projects is they require spare cash to do them and right now for many people, cash is limited. But changing the inside of the house is as good as a holiday and since none...
The Block bathroom reveals were shown last night and the bathrooms did not disappoint. It seems circles and architectural design were the winning features in this week’s bathrooms. Face level storage was also another hot topic brought up. Here...
Around a month ago, Jacob told me he was going to grow a mo and beard for Movember. I inwardly groaned. You see I don’t like facial hair. Superficial, I know. But I like a clean shaved man. I don’t mind...
Last Tuesday was a busy day for me. I felt a bit like the main character from that movie “I don’t know how she does it” because I was heading from one place to the next to the next,...
On Monday I was feeling a little flat. Nothing unusual had happened, but I had a lot on my mind and Esther was home sick and I was worried she wouldn’t be able to go to her school excursion...
‘Omigosh Bec, you have to read this new blogger I follow. Her posts are funny as f--- and she is so relatable.’ I smiled at my friend because I knew exactly who she was talking about. Since writing on the internet...
This post has been written in collaboration with Hivita If you have kids with fussy eating habits… you’re not alone. I have some of those in my household too. That’s why I was eager to get my kids to review...
Black tapware doesn’t seem to be waning any time soon from bathrooms and kitchens. This tapware finish seems to be nearly as popular as the classic chrome or stainless steel taps that have had a timeless appeal over the...
It’s less than a week till Christmas and I’m yearning for the peace that is promised at this time of year when everything stops right on Christmas Eve. It’s been an exhausting and emotional year and yet it’s also had...
Gastro is a nasty nasty bug. So far my girls have been really lucky not to have experienced gastro which means Jacob and I have been fortunate enough not to have experienced what it’s like to care for really...
I’m not exactly sure if the title of my post is politically correct? But I’m still going to run with it because it explains exactly how I made this Gingerbread Holly Wreath. And before you think I’ve turned into a...
When I first started working full time at age 19, I had little idea about the Melbourne Cup. It wasn’t until I was in my second office job that we decided to dress up a little for the day and organise some...
Everyone has to start somewhere when it comes to finding their dream career. Sometimes the career we choose changes or evolves as time moves on. There are many celebrities who started out as tradespeople before they got their lucky break...
Our modern lives in the western world are all so busy and everything we do takes time. More and more we are becoming aware of how we can spend our time more efficiently and effectively so we can live...
If you’re in the initial stages of planning a bathroom renovation or a new build, you will no doubt be looking at bathroom trends to assist with your fixture and tile choices. One of the trends that shows no...
A dish rack for colouring book storage is a great way to organise colouring in books. Have them on display so the kids can access them when they want.  We have A LOT of colouring in books in our house...
If there is one annoyance I have had since living in our current home, it’s the attraction of mice to our outdoor air conditioning unit. We have a reverse cycle ducted air conditioning which gets used 24 hours a day,...
When I was on the tools and getting the best prices for fixtures for contracts we had won, Reece wasn’t the only place I would contact to get the best price or order in the obscure fixtures that were exclusive...
Since dad and I stopped working together, we don’t get to see each other as much during the week. I’m often busy juggling the kids, their activities and fitting in my work, while dad is busy doing things he...
And So We Start Another School and Kindy Year How fast did those six weeks of school holidays roll around? Admittedly, last week I was ready for my girls to go somewhere because the fighting and screaming was doing my...
For Christmas, my mum gave me our very own custom designed front door mat. In truth, I didn’t need another door mat because we had just updated the front of our house for Handyman Magazine. I had invested in new...
