    ‘Is it true? I keep bumping into these drop dead gorgeous gals who tell me the singles scene in Sydney is awful and that Sydney blokes are, well, less than desirable. I’d love to hear from the worldly girls about what makes us (yes, I am one) so hopeless. How can we lift our game, [...]

    Do you need to believe?

    Monday, March 23, 2015

    I have this problem in romantic relationships where I need to believe it’s going somewhere. It’s like the whole ‘suspension of disbelief’ theory for movies. Sure, we all know that it’s highly unlikely that a stray alien landed in Drew Barrymore’s childhood bedroom but to enjoy the film E.T., you really need to let go of [...]

And you [...]

    The real deal

    Wednesday, March 11, 2015

    I had the honour (I do not say this lightly) of seeing Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and  The Signature of All Things, at the Opera House on Sunday. She is GLORIOUS; genuinely shiny and hilarious and grounded and I could gush on forever. She’s the real deal. Lately she’s been hanging out with [...]

Oh feminism

You confuse me. I am currently reading ‘Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr Good Enough’ (Lori Gottlieb) because I love this kind of stuff. Same goes with ‘How to be a woman’ (Caitlin Moran) and ‘The Happiness Project’ (Gretchen Rubin) and basically anything that provides advice on how to live a good life. By [...]

What love is

What love is: Love is choosing to forgive, even though you’re angry or disappointed. Love is talking about things in an honest, uncomfortable way. Love is admitting your imperfections and accepting your partner’s. Love is focusing on the positives. Love is laughing at yourself and lightening the mood when it’s all too easy to be serious. Love is [...]

My friend Holly’s family owns Pine Crest Orchard in Bilpin NSW and I had one of the funnest days ever running amok, picking their horticultural goodies and clambering down to their secret waterfall. Less fun was the large, [...]

Lovebirds in South East Queensland: Things to do

Hey you fellow loved up cutie pies! With Valentine’s Day upon us we’re being bombarded with  ‘‘his’ and ‘her’ gift guides everywhere we go. How many of those gifts that you got from your exes ended up for re-sale on site like Gumtree (shh … I promise I won’t tell)? I always believe that going [...]

Periods!

Yes! Half the population gets them, is going to get them or had them. Why doesn’t anyone talk about it?! People will tell you about their FitBits, CrossFit classes and Fitness First memberships and yet here’s this huge health thing that affects all women on a regular basis and … nothing. And yet when you do bring [...]
