• Poop

    Thursday, May 18, 2017

    There is nothing quite like a good poop to make you feel better. The strange thing – even with all the talk of fermented foods, gut health, and probiotics – is that no one really talks about the end game. The Poop. I was shocked and delighted when a colleague of mine casually mentioned that she […]

  • Joy

    Wednesday, May 17, 2017

    A few weeks back I read a wonderful post by Elizabeth Gilbert about how your soul is always guiding you towards joy (click here to read it). The basic premise is that the further you move away from what makes you joyful, the louder your soul will protest. Joy, not to be confused with pleasure, is […]

  • Six things I didn’t know before I became a mum

    Wednesday, May 10, 2017

    It doesn’t matter how much time you have spent Googling and talking to people. There’s still a bunch of stuff that will surprise you – and, at times, blindside you – when you become a mum for the first time. Here are the main things that blew my mind. Sex is painful I had a […]

  • Cockroaches

    Monday, May 8, 2017

    Our apartment in Glebe is the epicentre of cockroach society. Every tier is represented. Every species. I have never known such activity as what happens in our kitchen after dark. Even when I opened my laptop (my laptop!), a tiny cockroach ran out. A couple of weeks ago I was feeding the baby in bed and […]

    Is this a new phenomenon? The mutual pleasure of loving a TV show so much that it becomes central to your relationship? The Spark and I have enjoyed many box sets and, in an alarmingly truthful moment, he once said that watching TV together is what we do best. That sounds kinda lame, right? That […]

Travel Tales: Jack Carty (Look out America, he’s coming your way!)

Free to a good home – shiny new Australian musician Before we launch into Jack’s excellent adventures, I have a very big favour to ask all of you. Does anyone have any contacts in the hotel industry in the USA? Or even just a group of folk music-lovin’ friends who might be able to help Jack […]

I’m coming to stay…

These words strike fear into my foolish heart. I like visitors; I really do. They come, they visit, they leave. It’s the stayers I worry about. I have a very bad habit of inviting people to everything. Seriously, buy me a drink and I will invite you to my wedding. I am that kind of […]

The Geography of Beauty: Hot or not?

In some countries, I am considered beautiful, and yet in other countries, I am considered a blubbery, white freak show. The conclusion I have drawn is that beauty is as cultural as anything else. My friend Tennille who is currently living in India recently wrote about a particularly cringeworthy visit to the beauty salon. She was told by […]

‘O’ Vegas

‘O’ Vegas By Thea Easterby After hearing rave reviews from a friend, I had to see the ‘O’ Cirque Du Soleil show at The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas but by the time we arrived in Vegas the show was sold out. Since I was staying at the hotel anyway, I popped by the booking […]

Itchy Feet Youth Travel Festival – Sydney

If my feet were any itchier, I would be going to the chemist and buying some anti-fungal cream.  I  have a maniacal habit of interrogating people about their favourite places, ogling brochures and poring over travel features and books and blogs and basically anything I can get my nerdy little brain cells on. My travel […]

Overseas sick: Why is it always so spectacular?

The downside of travelling to exotic places is that sometimes you end up getting sick. This seems fair enough – you are out of your immune comfort zone – but my question is why is it never just a bit sick? If you’re the kind of person who gets the occasional sniffle when you’re at home, why is […]
