Blogtober 2017 | Day 31 – 3 YouTube channels I follow

Vlogging is something that has intrigued me for a while, now, but is something I’ve never really explored. It’s on my wishlist of things to supplement my blog, but it’s probably still a ways into the future. However, there are some channels I have found that have some great content!

Blogtober 2017 | Day 30 – What’s the deal with Pinterest?

I haven’t spent a great deal of time I Pinterest. Until recently, I didn’t really get how Pinterest benefits bloggers. I still don’t really understand it, but I’m told it’s a must! So this is a little snippet into my venture into using Pinterest, in the absence of a list of great boards to follow …

Blogtober 2017 | Day 29 – 5 Instamums with gorgeous feeds

I love Instagram! I love the predominantly visual nature of the platform, as opposed to text-heavy platforms like Twitter. In the spirit of motherhood, here are five feeds I love on Instagram!

Blogtober 2017 | Day 28 – 5 Twitter feeds to follow

Much like yesterday’s post, I thought I’d share the love a little today by introducing you to five Twitter feeds you should follow as a mummy (or daddy) blogger!

Blogtober 2017 | Day 27 – 5 Facebook pages I love

There is so much content on Facebook, that it is sometimes hard to find quality pages to follow. As part of my mummy blogging adventure, I’ve found and followed a bunch of great pages from other mums and dads sharing their parenting journeys, as well as baby/parenting-related pages from brands/companies. Here are five Facebook pages that I love!

Blogtober 2017 | Day 26 – Zoo

I love going to the zoo! I had planned to take J to Taronga this week, along with a friend and her baby daughter, but the weather was too windy and bleak for a zoo visit. We went to the SEA LIFE Aquarium (formerly Sydney Aquarium) instead.

Blogtober 2017 | Day 8 – Holidays

I remember lots of family holidays as a kid. We’d often go places with bush walking or museums or some sort of activity to do. Always places we could drive to, since my dad likes driving but really does not like flying. One of my favourite childhood holidays is a trip to Jindabyne. I recall the holiday house we stayed in, House Matterhorn. I Googled it just now and it looks just like it did then, some fifteen years ago – but not old, mind you. It was a lovely holiday. We tried to ski (without much success, as we were going horizontally across the slope, because we were too scared to try going down), and we had heaps of fun with toboggans. My brother and I built a snowman, then a snow-Henry (our puppy, which we had recently acquired). I don’t think it actually snowed while we were there, but it was so bloody cold that even the snowsuits we were wearing barely kept out the chill.
