The “Santa” Question most parents dread…

I love Christmas, it’s one of the most magical times of the year – especially when you can look at it through the eyes of a child. Our little Miss is 6 and she’s one smart cookie. I remember taking her in to Brisbane City last Christmas for the lighting of the tree and I […]

Help! I’ve got a thousand photos on my phone and no space!

  Critical mass is approaching fast and there’s a little Scotty in your phone shouting at you “I’m givin’ her all she’s got Captain, but I can’t give her much more!” Yes, you guessed it. It’s time to sort those photos out on your phone. Things were a whole lot simpler with a roll of […]

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up

It was a few months ago now that a friend of mine gave me the book “The life changing magic of tidying up”. “Catchy title” I thought, but I wondered what I could really learn from it. After all, in my bones I know that the state of your ‘space’ reflects the state of your […]

Go gently

I love yoga – I get the addiction. Who’d have though it?!? It reminds me to be gentle with myself and others and today, I was reminded of the importance of allowing others to be gentle with me. There’s a little marveling going on there too – our bodies are pretty damned amazing. I think […]

Lessons Learned

I remember my little’s Miss’ first couple of years vividly. I have 100’s of photographs to remind me. (Wait, it could be 1000s.) I completed my first photography course just before she turned three. Initially, the amount of photos I took tripled – my little Miss is definitely my muse. The better I get though, […]

The Mamapreneur

I’m a Mama – a mamapreneur. I have a daughter – she’s 6. I love her more than life itself and she is the why behind Salt Mama Studio. Last school holidays, I forgot that fact and got a crash course on the limitations motherhood places on entrepreneurship. I wish it was full steam ahead – […]

Am I present now?

Being present is nothing new. I remember “living in the moment, man” in the 70s. It was easy then, I was a kid and all that mattered was NOW! Yesterday was gone, tomorrow hadn’t happened and all I knew was today. I had no responsibilities, I dreamed of flying and fairies and toadstools. It was AWESOME! […]

Happy Galentine’s Day!

I love the idea behind this day. February 13th! The day before Valentine’s Day is the most sacred of holidays: Galentine’s Day. Get together with your gal pals and just celebrate each other!     I found these on Amy Poehler’s Smart Girl Website. Have a look around while you’re there, it’s a wonderful website for empowering […]

Risk being seen in all your glory

It’s with these remarkable words that I’ll begin my journey. It’s part of Jim Carrey’s commencement speech at the 2014 MUM Graduation.   The man’s words are astounding – ask the universe, work towards it and let go of how it comes to pass. “You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might […]
