36 Life Lessons from a 36 Year Old

So it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I turned 36, which was interesting to me as I have realised over the past year that in fact I think I am perpetually 27!

Every birthday is a moment to pause, reflect, assess. A mental reflection of where I have been, what I have achieved, where I am, where I want to go, and so on.

So I have been thinking about life lessons, and decided why not make it 36…

How to get Beautiful Family Photos

I recently enjoyed a Mummy and me photoshoot on one of my favourite Sunshine Coast beaches, Kawana Beach. My husband was suppose to be at the shoot, but at the last minute he couldn’t make it due to work. So, I decided to go ahead anyway and enjoy this special time with my children, creating memories we could look back on for years to come. I absolutely love these photos, they are so natural and playful, and they were taken during the school holidays which is one of my favourite times with my children. I really love that I can look back and remember these beautiful school holidays where I was deep in enriching my children’s lives.

Flawless Salon Quality Nails Created at Home with Sistaco

I am so excited to be writing this blog to tell you all about the revolutionary nail system by Sistaco! I was recently introduced to the product and couldn’t wait to share it with you. 

As a busy Mother to three young children, I was most excited to hear about Sistaco as I like my nails to look tidy, but I find it so hard to get into a salon to regularly maintain them. Not to mention the cost involved with the upkeep of salon nails. Prior to using Sistaco I would paint my nails myself with regular nail polish, but it would only be a matter of 24 hours before they would start to chip, break away and not look so tidy anymore. Not ideal right!

Rosie’s Enchanted Fairy Birthday Party

We recently celebrated Rosie’s 3rd birthday with the an absolutely beautiful enchanted fairy themed party! I cannot believe that the baby of our family is three! As you know I absolutely love children’s birthday parties, especially spoiling my children and their friends with a wonderful day. There was so much excitement in our house during the lead up to Rosie’s special day.

When planning a party I like to have a theme as find that it give me direction in the planning, and of course is really fun. When choosing the theme, first of all I come up with some ideas based on what the children like at the moment, and then I give them the options to choose from. We recently visited Disneyland in California where we met Tinker Bell, my girls absolutely loved her, so I knew that a fairy would be very popular amongst them. The children also really enjoyed the movie Pete Pan and Wendy which was recently out of Netflix. They all jumped on the idea of an enchanted fairy theme, so we got to planning.
