I'm a bit excited about Abeeco but I have to admit that I'd only recently heard about this company but had never actually tried their products. So when they approached Jay and I to give them a go I was really curious...and I have to say the effect it has had on me the last 3 months is amazing!
A swipe of my favourite shade across my lips can totally and utterly transform my mood. Wearing a bold red likeM.A.C’s Lady Danger makes me feel powerful, my favourite deep nude Velvet Teddy makes me feel put together and my favourite pink toned Kinda Sexy makes me feel all kinds of happy.
Children can be baffling at the best of times. Since the moment they are born we are often left guessing about what they want from us, we think it will get easier when they can talk but when they become verbal it can all be just as confusing as their language struggles to keep up with their busy minds. Sometimes I watch my boys run around the house in disbelief, they seem like crazy little nutters jumping from one activity to another.
As a population, we are generally all stuck in this awful habit of putting people into a box to make sense of their decisions.
But our bias of what we think fits in that box or what we deem "normal" depending on gender isn't something we should force upon others.
One of my sons is into all things pink, unicorns, rainbows and mermaids.
The idea of moving to the Mount first came about about a year and a half ago.
I'll admit, when the topic of conversation first got brought up, tears would roll down my face. It scared the living daylights out of me. We were leading very social lives in Auckland, always out and about.
All my best friends who have been in my life since I started high school where there, and my family.
I've been asked to be a monthly columnist in the Bay of Plenty Times Indulge magazine and in my first I introduce myself, so here we go...meet, well, me!
Two very adventurous boys have led to many mishaps in the health and safety department. Let’s see…a fractured skull, broken nose and gash to the forehead have been the worst. But it’s not always massive injuries like that that keep this mum busy and the pharmacy in business. The number of cuts, scratches, scrapes and bruises this little family has had in our 4 years is incredible.
Autoimmune diseases and skin & lung cancer - scary words when put down in black and white, right?
Those are the major health concerns that have affected my family and Jay’s in the past, which of course means they are on the radar for us, and now also our boys. Our tiny, perfect boys that I hope more than anything never have to suffer from either of these conditions.
I’m not sure about you, but I LOVE our crock pot, it saves me so much time and is a super easy way to cook for the whole family. However it seems to get the most use in winter, but really the summer months when we are out and about is the time when I really need its time saving abilities. So The Mad Butcher asked me to share my favourite summer crock pot meals so easy and nice and light.
I have always been a fan of a body oil...here is looking at you my old friend Kai but this summer I have been slathering myself in all sorts of them and I CAN'T GE ENOUGH! My body seems to be loving me for it as its soaking them all up big time! Body oils are amazing for a number of reasons; a little goes a long way, they are more easily absorbed by the body and don't actually clog pores like some moisturisers can do, they are mulit-functional (get it all up in your hair for a moisture surge) and they smell insanely good.
