Do You Wanna Make Some Snow? Two Ingredients Is All You Need.

Two Ingredient Snow Frozen Fun | look at Pinterest and see all the snow, log fireplaces, hot chocolate recipes and general White Christmas ideas and think Wow, how different is Australia? Here we have burning sun, beaches, prawns and pavs and cold cans of drink; but would you have it any other way?
While I love the warm weather, I do think just once I would love to have a White Christmas like in the movies and be all rugged up next to a fire sipping a hot toddy but alas I am sure the forecast for this Christmas will be over 30 degrees so I think I will have to be happy with a nice chilled class of Moscato, some trifle and the air con!!

Sparkle our Elf on the Shelf has arrived…..

Elf on the shelf |


This year we have welcomed Sparkle our Elf on the Shelf doll. Isabell picked out the name, after Twighlight Sparkle (My Little Pony) of which she believes in her heart of hearts that Santa is bringing her for Christmas if she is a good girl.

For those not aware of Elf on the Shelf, it is a great activity you can do with your kids every year at Christmas time and basically involves a little doll (you can buy a boy or girl doll) and you hide it around the house everyday and pose it doing something funny, and then the kids have to find it. You can read more about it here.

I Moustache You a Question…….Do You Support Movember???

Movember | is the new November!  For those who are not familiar with this great cause check out the Movember Australia website for information on what it is all about and how to donate. I donate every year as I often feel mens health is sometimes in the background. The general idea is grow a moustache during the month of November and get people to sponsor or donate and use your Mo to start up conversations about mens health issues.

No Bake Carrot Cake Balls (but don’t forget the Cinnamon!)

Yummy Healthy No Bake Carrot Cake Balls |

I recently got some really cute little card treat trays from my supplier and wanted an alternative to a rich truffle to put in them for kids parties and I came across a great recipe from Essential Kids that I thought I would try.  Anything that states “No Bake” always catches my eye, especially in this rental property that has an oven that does not believe in maintaining temperature.  I cannot wait until we move (around 2 weeks) into our new house we are building and into that beautiful kitchen I have spent many months planning and dreaming about!
