Scratch that travel itch

By on August 18, 2015

The main reason I love sharing my travel adventures is not to brag. No really, it’s not. Yes, there is always that ‘from where you’d rather be’ postcard perfect photo but it’s never intended to be a thumb-nosed ha ha

Go BIG in Hawaii

By on July 12, 2015

We decided to include Hawaii on our worldwide itinerary purely for the downtime. It was the first stop as Brad had been working pretty hard up until our departure and because we’d been a little pale from the Brisbane winter,

Night diving with Manta Rays, Hawaii

By on July 8, 2015

I’m going to give you a BIG tip for when you visit Big Island, Hawaii. GO NIGHT DIVING OR SNORKELLING WITH THE MANTA RAYS. I don’t think I can express it anymore than in caps! Although initially hearing that it

Surprise! They’re getting married.

On the 9 May 2015, the scene was set at Hotel Urban in Brisbane for the engagement party of two beautiful friends Ben and Sarah. The guests arrived to a gorgeous burnt orange sunset beyond the floor to ceiling glass

Splash out on a water bungalow experience

By on April 10, 2015

I’ve always wanted to stay in one of those resorts suspended over the ocean.  You know, like the picture perfect water bungalow post cards of Bora Bora or the Maldives. It’s no wonder these specific places come to mind when

Capture life’s precious moments

By on December 12, 2014

It’s such a beautiful privilege to be able to capture life’s milestones of the little loved ones in my life. On the G20 weekend in November my nephew Jack and his gorgeous little cousin Anna were christened in Mackay, Queensland.

Video a wedding

By on October 12, 2014

When my beautiful friends James & Tanya got married I asked if I could video their wedding and they said … YES! Not only did I put together a traditional wedding video so they could cherish the memories forever, I

Mount Kinabalu

Don’t underestimate Mount Kinabalu

By on August 16, 2014

A BookFace friend recently posted an amazing photograph from the top of Mount Kinabalu. “I want to do that!” I exclaimed and promptly put it on the bucket list. I didn’t realise that within a few short months, we would

Steal a dance in Borneo

By on August 15, 2014

This video comes with a disclaimer. As much as we love the song Stolen Dance by Milky Chance, we were definitely NOT stoned in paradise.  That would be illegal. Most of the time we were sober, except for this one

Get your dive ticket

By on May 15, 2014

Yeah, I’ve dreamt about it but it usually doesn’t end well. I think an unhealthy fear of the creatures of the deep has caused me to put off this bucket list item for quite some time. If it wasn’t for

Be a Supergirl

Home is where the heart is

By on February 10, 2014

More than three decades ago my parents were sold on a little white house at Chandler. It had funny arched window facades and an orange tiled roof. A toad pond at the front and a dam at the back. I’m

Supporting the sisters

By on January 19, 2014

I have to admit this wasn’t on my bucket list. Actually, the feminist side of me was totally against the idea of watching scantily clad women playing football being exploited for the enjoyment of men. Even a work colleague was

Whistler, Canada

Hit the slopes in Canada

By on December 11, 2013

If you asked me what champagne powder was prior to our trip to Canada I would have said a type of cocktail. That’s how little I know about skiing. The last time I ‘hit the slopes’ and by hit I

Volunteer to help save the Orangutans in Borneo

By on December 4, 2013

I have travelled in various ways to many countries around the world which have provided me with amazingly rich travel experiences that will stay with me forever. This trip was my turn to give back with more than just the
