Aren’t you lucky to be able to stay at home and tend to your children’s needs while being still in a position of contributing to the family budget? I feel this way, too. But it took me some time to truly appreciate the opportunity to work from home without compromising my idea of being a good mom at the same time. I had to fine tune my expectations in both endeavours, adjust goals, configure relationships with clients and reinvent the concept of time management to suit my family needs. As a result, I became more organised, fulfilled and happier. I manage now to complete whatever tasks I’ve set for myself for the day and still have free time to enjoy a half-an-hour chat with a friend, for instance.
Planning a children’s party is fun. Heck, planning a party at any age is fun! With endless themes to consider and cool, creative ideas to incorporate, the only limit is your imagination.
Inflatables have always been a big hit at children’s parties (adults love them too!) and bubble soccer ticks all the right boxes for hours of entertainment.
Bubble soccer is perfect for those kids who spend too much time in front of the TV and need a little push when it comes to outdoor fun. On the flip side, it’s fantastic for those youngsters that are loaded with energy.
I have always tried to live an environmentally conscious life and every year I do something special to celebrate Earth Day. Whether I take part in an organised event in Melbourne, go on a hike with friends or finish a long due design project at home by reusing some old materials, I just make sure that I mark the day in my own way.
Well, this year, it is my first Earth Day as a mum. And I feel a little bit restricted to just do anything I like to show my appreciation for Nature. Moreover, with rain forecast for tomorrow and for the week ahead, my choice of options seems rather limited. So, I have decided to bring Earth Day at home by drafting a list of the small things I could do to contribute to our environment.
Feel free to follow in my footsteps, you pretty Eco-minded mums!
They say home is where the heart is, so if that’s the case, shouldn’t we be putting as much investment into our personal space as we do to keep our hearts happy and healthy? Creating a home that makes you fall in love with it again and again, is one of the best ways to boost happiness in our lives. And it doesn’t need to cost a fortune either. Property upgrades, simple DIY projects and giving your space a little TLC all go a long way.
There is no better time than spring to turn our homes inside out, to clean the dirt, grime and dust and to re-insert order in our dwellings, lives and minds. The same applies to our bodies too. Just like we take rubbish out in spring, I believe this period is great for getting rid of the toxins in our bodies as well! Surely, the heavy wintry climate has seen quite a bit of those building up in your system and now would be a great time to revise your work out routine and meal plans. Is there anything that needs a quick clean up? More…
Lately we have been hearing the same thing over and over again from our friends, colleagues and family:”We understand that being green is important for our environment and our future generations, but it is harder and more expensive” To this we say “No! It really is EASY being green” From the kitchen and bathroom right through to the garden, you will be highly delighted with our top 7 easy (and super frugal) ways to go green. More…
On Saturday it was one of those days when I just woke up with the urge to do something nice for my husband and surprise him. He went over to his parents to help them and it was then when I went grocery shopping and I planned the whole thing. He loves fish, and salmon in particular, and that’s why I decided to try an old recipe my mom used to make. Although it sounds fancy – it is very easy, don’t worry! More…
