Super Charged Morning for the Network Marketing Mama

I have been asked a lot what a day in my life looks like. So I thought I would share here! It seems a lot of us who have this amazing flexibility in our business, struggle with focus and productivity when we are the driving force of our day. It’s really, really common. So if…

Essential Oils…More Than Smelly Hippy Rubbish

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of essential oils? I know I used to think of them as obscure, dusty, sticky little bottles sitting in the hippy shop, in the corner. Who knows how old some of them were, and how many people had come to try the testers.…

From Burnout to Freedom

Do you ever think back on where you have come from, and feel utter gratitude wash over you? This happens to me pretty often. Today it pulls at me strongly. Only 5 years ago, everything appeared to be picture perfect from the outside looking in, but I was longing to fill a God shaped hole…

Minimalism

Minimalism: what does it bring to mind for you? Bare stark walls, a feeling of organisation and joy, a totally unattainable unicorn, pure terror? 4 years ago, I would have gone with option C) and D). Minimalism has been an interesting journey for me, to say the least. If you are new to following me…

Essential Oils Don’t Actually Work, Right?

I know a lot of people probably scroll past my posts, thinking that the stuff I am going on about with essential oils is unproven. Essential oils might smell nice, but that they are just smelly little bottles of hippy rubbish. Right? I know that is what I used to think, so I totally get…

Christmas On The Road. Not What I Thought.

Every single thing on the road seems to defy the way I imagine it. I have quite a big imagination, but sometimes it can be way out of line. For some reason, I kinda imagined life would be just the same when travelling, only in a bus! Yeah, no. This year, we are headed into…

Mum Guilt, We All Get It Right?

So, at the moment things have been really quite busy for us as a family. How on earth can things get busy with this magical life we lead on the road, you ask? Well, we have always travelled a little differently to many out there. We haven’t taken 6 months off from our jobs, to take…

For Every Woman In the Spirit of Embrace

Embrace, the movie has been released in lots of cinemas around the country. I haven’t had the chance to watch it yet, but it is a subject close to my own heart. Since hitting the road, I have for the first time been much more aware of the real issues behind my body image woes….and…

The 8 Mindset Stages of the Travelling Mum

It’s now been 16 months since we hit the road. Boy, what a journey. But I can say now we are in such a good place. So much growth, so many times we have stripped back our possessions and ourselves. So it got me thinking about all the “stages”. Definitely denial: We aren’t actually leaving. The house…

OK. Here I Go. Gettin’ Real With Ya

I have seen a lot of mums posting lately how they are struggling, and how they want to be real on social media. And it got me thinking, how do I/my family/my life, come across on social media? And is it an accurate picture? I put on fresh eyes, the eyes of someone new to…

How Our Family Birthdays Have Changed

Today a special, quirky, extremely funny girl turns 7. And in 3 days another child will celebrate her 9th year earth-side. And although there is not a lot to show, my heart sings happy at the simplicity and pleasure we receive from the small things. Today, there is no party with other kids. No cake…

5 Things I Have Learnt From A Year On The Road

I started this blog only a few weeks ago, but can you believe it has actually been a whole year since we hit the road? A whole year ago that we said bye to Esperance, and hello to our first stop: Bromus Dam near Norseman. I still remember that first stop like it was yesterday!…

A Dream I’ve Had Since I Was A Kid….

I am on such a high! We got up early ( for us) to be a part of the Dolphin experience at Monkey Mia. I remember wanting to do this since I was a little kid (and all of my friends at school were talking about how they went to Monkey Mia in the holidays).…

Shark Bait

Shark Bait – Useless Loop, WA.

  So I am feeling mighty mighty chuffed with myself. I did a few firsts on the weekend, and I have decided I LOVE water sports. We went out to Useless Loop at a ridiculously early hour on Friday. It’s a salt mine site, and isn’t open to the general public, but we have some awesome family connections.…
