    Camden, NSW

    Wednesday, September 6, 2017

    It’s taken me a while to write this. I wasn’t sure about Camden at first. It’s supremely weird moving from a tiny apartment in the city – complete with yell-y crazy neighbour, sparkly city lights, ambient bus noise and a fancy cafe on the doorstep – to a giant house in the country. Bridgewater is one […]

    Kindness

    Tuesday, July 18, 2017

    Forget everything you’ve been taught. Forget about achieving. Forget about Bachelors degrees, or Honours, or Masters. Forget about owning things. Forget about money. Forget everything but this. Kindness is the only thing that matters. Kindness to yourself, because that’s where all kindness begins. Look upon yourself with love. With compassion. With humour. And then turn […]

    Freelancing is a tough gig but it’s one worth pursuing if you want (or need) to manage your time in a way that sits outside the 9 to 5 norm. On the upside, you are free to follow your interests, have full control – and responsibility for – your schedule and business administration, and you can […]

    In praise of the everyday

    Monday, June 26, 2017

    After years of writing about – and occasionally experiencing – some pretty fancy stuff, I have to say that I am loving the humble life. Aldi Champagne instead of Veuve. Homemade casseroles instead of degustations. Days of laundry, writing, baby mama-ing and coffees with friends. There’s a lot of joy to be found in this new […]

Lisa’s Travel Deal of the Week

Lisa’s Travel Deal of the Week It’s been a long time between deals for me here at SheGoes.  After some time spent tramping the wilds of Victoria, I returned to Sydney and a house move that had me convinced it would have actually just been easier to stay in the wilds of Victoria and construct […]

Win a 7 day Jucy campervan rental

Being on a budget sucks. Everytime I spend money on something non-essential, I feel really guilty and horrible which really detracts from the overall pleasure of the purchase. Case in point: This morning. I went to the chemist to buy a nail file and came away with two nail polishes (black sateen and goddess), lip […]

I love Brisbane

Flying into this north-flung city, I had no strong feelings. I had always assumed that Brisbane would be an extension of the Gold Coast. More glitz, more high rise, more muggy nights spent drinking under neon. I was wrong. Brisbane offers up everything I hold dear in a whimsical, frontier setting. There are crooked sailing boats moored in the river, barely […]

A holiday in a bottle

Every country has its drink. Peru has Pisco Sours and Chicha, Thailand has Sang Thip and Singha. Wherever you go in the world, there is always one or two tipples that are served in every bar that are usually cheap and locally produced (read: nasty and fermented with saliva). What I thought might be a bit […]

Perth perhaps by Maggie Videan

Perth perhaps? By Maggie Videan Depending on where you live, Perth is a decent old flight for us Easterners. It is five hours over and, with tail winds, about four hours back. So, ideally, you may want to spend more than a few days there or try and work in another Western Australian destination to make the […]

NWA Withdrawl by Doug Meyer

NWA Withdrawl by Doug Meyer While cleaning out my garage this last weekend I came across nine factory sealed cardboard cartons that have been there since last fall. After the Northwest Airlines acquisition by Delta was finally completed last fall, Northwest had what amounted to a huge garage sale. It was supposed to be employees-only, […]
