Everyday Life

Sometimes I just want to write what I am thinking or doing in my everyday life. They’ll go here.


Same Same… Nothing Different

It’s been a while since I last wrote and there’s a few reasons for that. Firstly – nothing has happened to me or Husband… to be honest, nothing since February. And not much has happened since my last post. Secondly – I have continued with restricting myself off social media (Facebook, Instagram in particular) for… Continue reading Same Same… Nothing Different

My (Shy) Introvert Life

I recently googled “shy vs introvert” because I wanted to make sure I chose the correct term for a new site I am building, and I came across some of the below infographics detailing the differences which I thought was interesting. I did not think they were different. I thought if you were an introvert,… Continue reading My (Shy) Introvert Life

My KitKat Break

I feel like there is no escaping Social Media in this day and age. When I was actively connected to everything, or nearly everything, it became exhausting. Life consuming. Brain draining. So in early July, I took a social media hiatus for a month from all my primary socials: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. So, after… Continue reading My KitKat Break

My Fridge

OK, so this picture is not really of my fridge but our fridge… but I fill it, and empty it, the most out of the two of us. [Ava has a sixth sense for when a door opens. It could be any type of door – bathroom, kitchen, wardrobe, cupboard, fridge – and she will… Continue reading My Fridge

My Desk

OK, so this picture is not really of a desk but a dining table… which I use as my desk because the real desk is being used by someone who brings home the money… however, that is my view (which I am hella grateful for everyday). I admit, I was sneaky and I waited until… Continue reading My Desk

I forgot to k.i.s.s

Godammit. I learnt to k.i.s.s in like.. I don’t know.. third grade? Yet here I am, almost three decades later, and I totally forgot to. And as a consequence, I have been re-doing my site all over again, while binge watching the Marvel movies in order (currently watching Captain America: Civil War). At the start… Continue reading I forgot to k.i.s.s

Super Easy Brownies

It takes more effort and brain power deciding what to watch next on Netflix than making these brownies! Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter, soften 1 cup white sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp baking powder 100-150g block of chocolate Icing (optional):… Continue reading Super Easy Brownies

Simple Airfryer Bagels

These homemade bagels are ridiculously quick and easy! I have the Tefal Activfry (original) which probably isn’t the best shaped air fryer to make these in but it was do-able. Ingredients: 1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour + extra for dusting 2 teaspoons baking powder 3/4 teaspoon rock salt 1 cup Greek yoghurt (low-fat makes the… Continue reading Simple Airfryer Bagels

“Fall”ing more in love…

I have always loved fall/autumn. And by “always” I mean since 2007. In Australia, especially Queensland where I am from, we don’t tend to get distinct ‘seasons’. Sure – we were taught there are ‘seasons’ – we are not that uneducated as some other countries may believe – but in reality, for me while I… Continue reading “Fall”ing more in love…

Lonely Planet’s 2015 Ultimate Travelist book

On my recent trip to London, I stumbled across Lonely Planet’s sand sculpture displays, organized to promote their latest book; Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel. Below are some photos from the sand sculpture displays – honestly, there are some talented people out there.  The detailing is just amazing. Lonely Planet ranks 500 places to see on… Continue reading Lonely Planet’s 2015 Ultimate Travelist book

The lounge pig strikes again

Husband and I landed safely Sunday at JFK. Our flights with Cathay (SYD-HK-NY) all went well. We sat in premium economy which I thought was pretty good. The seats were spacious with plenty of leg room, not that I really needed it, being only 5ft 6. The flight on the first leg to HK was… Continue reading The lounge pig strikes again

Lounge pig

I am one of the most disgusting, poorly trained, lounge pigs. Soon after meeting Husband he introduced me to airline lounges. I can’t remember which lounge I entered first, but I remember I was once a shy lounge guest.  I was conscious that people were watching me going up for food, eating the food, going for… Continue reading Lounge pig

Umbrella etiquette

Lately, Sydney has been experiencing some stormy weather.  It will be raining while I am heading into work, clear up while I’m in the office, then rain heavily again when I’m heading back home. I have no problem with it raining. I don’t mind a good storm. I even don’t mind walking in the rain (although there’s an… Continue reading Umbrella etiquette
