30 Before 30 Review

In 2014 I created a blog post (and page) where I aimed to complete 30 things before turning 30. My objective was to perform many tasks I had wanted to do but lacked time or motivation. While I was not able to finish all items before turning 30, I am proud of those I was…

Thirty

Today I turned thirty. I celebrated my thirtieth birthday with my parents and kept it low-key. I’m not a party person, so that was ideal for me.  Age doesn’t define who you are. Age doesn’t dictate how you should live. Age is a process of growing and discovering yourself, not measured in numbers or dates.…

Being Thankful

In life, we can become complacent with the things that matter and forget to acknowledge what is important to us in the present. We may not realise that something or someone meant so much until circumstances change. I know that one day, I am going to be thinking about this time of my life, and…

Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas to all, if you celebrate this holiday I hope you had a really great day.  My Christmas was a little different this year. Normally I spend it at home with mum, watching movies all day and my dad visits his family. Because my grandparents (dads side) have not been well, we decided to…

Christmas Exchange 2016

It’s that time of year again, when I am reaching out to anyone that may be interested in exchanging Christmas cards. It’s something that I really enjoy to do each year.  This year I will be including a card I have designed (featuring the character Peaty from my recent book, Peaty the Worm). I will…

Lost Letter: Nanna

The Lost Letters is a segment on my blog where I write a letter to a friend or relative that has died. In each letter, I hope to be able to write what I would tell them if I had the chance and allow it to be a healing process to be able to ‘write…

My First Car

On Tuesday the 5th of July I picked up my very first car. It is a 2016 Suzuki Swift and I think she is adorable.  I am really excited to have a car of my own and have always admired the design of the Suzuki Swifts. They are only a small car (or hatch) and…

Dear Smoking…

It’s time we had that talk. The serious one when I make a commitment and really mean it. I will quit smoking cigarettes. For the past 15 years I have been a smoker. I smoked because I thought it was cool. I smoked because it became a habit. I smoked because it felt like a…

Twenty Nine

Today I turned 29 and while it is a weird age to consider that your 20s are almost over, I think I am mostly okay with that. I have never been one to let age define who I am, and that is probably why turning 29 is not that big of a deal. I think sometimes…

Kitchen Renovation

My mum has her birthday on the 25th of February and I wanted to give her a gift that she could really enjoy. I decided to renovate the kitchen for her. Inspired by renovating my bedroom, I thought that giving the kitchen a fresh new look would be a really great present (mum thinks so…

My Daily Apps

This is a list of applications that I use everyday. Some of them are websites, available with cross-platform apps. Each day I use a range of applications (or apps), each with a useful purpose, such as; tracking health, recording thoughts, storing information, communicating and primarily keeping me organised in many different areas of life. I have been…

My iMac crashed

Last week my 7 month old iMac crashed and I had to take it in for repairs. I have no idea what happened. It was left on, I came back and it was not working. I tried different outlets, a different power cord, still nothing. When I tried to turn it on, it was making…
