    Lanie Bath & Body

    When I attended Beauty Revolution just before our nationwide shutdown, I got to meet up with some of my favourite people – namely Pink Cosmetics, Maria Cosmetics & also Lanie Bath & Body. These ladies are changing the world & really shaking up the beauty industry.  They are filled with love, & support one another with advice & kindness – which is something we all need rather than competition & putting one another down.  I reached out to Lanie post-event & we chatted a bit, whilst I felt more & more enamored by her products & bubbly personality.

    Michelle Funke Coaching

    Michelle is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. She is so kind, and after only one session with her I felt like I had huge breakthroughs in my life. I have had life and business coaching before, but still didn’t really understand the full benefits of it. That was until I had my coaching session with Michelle. We chatted through my imposter syndrome and people pleasing, and then chatted through some major events in my life. We discovered where a lot of my self-doubt and lack of self-belief has come from, and despite all the tears that I shed, I left feeling so much lighter and…

    Laurie Watson Photography

    I met Laurie at a birthday party for a friend’s child & I was instantly drawn to her energy & zest for life. She captured unseen moments, & you could really get an overall feeling for the day when browsing through her pics. I started following her on social media & we sent messaged back & forth on a few occasions. We bonded over our love for animals, beautiful things & supporting local businesses. We would often send little messages of encouragement to one another, & I am always completely enamored by her style of photography. During this nationwide COVID-19 pandemic, people are staying in their homes for at least…

    VA-Tungsten

    I scour the internet daily for competitions that I can enter – and hopefully win something. I have been quite lucky, but husband is forever saying to me, “Can’t you enter a competition that I benefit from as well?” So around Valentine’s Day I entered a few competitions with goodies for HIM, & I won the best prize of all – a ring from VA-Tungsten. Warren used to work in finance. So yes, he was that man that was smartly dressed in a suit, with his hair combed and perfectly polished shoes. Unfortunately he was retrenched, and searched for over a year for a job. He knew he didn’t want…

    La Vie En Rose

    “But first, brunch…“ Recently I was invited to an event at KCC La Vie En Rose (see their Facebook & Instagram pages) for a Bloggers Brunch, & I immediately accepted!  In case you haven’t noticed, I absolutely love my food, & brunch is that in between meal that just makes me super happy.  With husband working Saturdays we don’t often get the chance to go out & experience new restaurants, so this was really special. I arrived early on Saturday morning at Killarney Country Club, & drove through to the restaurant – it is on the property of KCC, & past where the gym is so don’t feel like you are…

    Smergos

    I met Nick & Nicole some time ago through a media event that we were both at, & they then had me over for an interview about invisible illnesses.  I was immediately drawn to their love & passion, & I clicked with them on a level usually reserved for friends for many years.  We laughed, teased each other & felt so comfortable finding our groove together.  I knew that I wanted to spend more time with them & learn more about their business, Smergos. Time has run away from us as we all have busy lives with work, doctor’s visits & life plans (ahem – Nick’s wedding coming up!).  So…

    Grumpy Snacks

    My health journey has introduced me to many new businesses that really get me excited.  I have a terrible sweet tooth, & definitely eat my emotions.  ie if I’m feeling happy/sad/excited/depressed/nervous/stressed/any other emotion, I will reach for food.  And preferably something sweet, laden with sugar & filled with empty calories.  I have been consciously trying to make a change, & one thing I am focused on is only having healthy snacks at home & at the office.  It doesn’t always work, but every small step is still a step forward in the right direction. Grumpy Snacks is a small business that make me laugh out loud when I spotted their…
