Some of you may or may not know that I was adopted when I was a little baby. I decided to share my story, one for other people who might be interested but also to look back in many years when I don’t have someone to tell me it anymore. So here is how my life began and my Mom…

6 things you should never say to a new mom

Ellen / February 24, 2015

Just found this post I wrote back when Aidan was 16 weeks old. I don’t even remember writing it so I guess I was sleep deprived even though he was sleeping through! Anyway apparently I never published it but it is still totally relevant almost 30 weeks later. Here are a list of things I guarantee 99% of new moms hear…

Smoothies | Berry Blitz

Ellen / February 20, 2015

A few weeks back I treated myself to a smoothie maker and I love it. I frequent the local smoothie bar every time I’m in town so I made it my mission to re-make my loved ‘berry blitz’ at home. Finally, after many, many attempts I have got it just right. IF you like smoothies then here is one to…

Baby products that become Beauty products

Ellen / February 15, 2015

When I first become a Mom my precious beauty products were well stocked in my lovely HerClutterBox (which every make-up addict needs if you ask me!).

And all good things must come to an end. By the time Friday came we were all wishing we could live at Bluestone!

Blue Lagoon | Bluestone

Ellen / February 12, 2015

Even with so much tough competition Blue Lagoon was definitely my favourite part of Bluestone. I went there for each of our three full days. Aidan loves swimming too which made it a great place for everyone. When you arrive at Blue Lagoon you show your lodge key at the front desk and they will issue you a pass valid for your…

Tackling the dreaded cold

Ellen / February 12, 2015

Since the weekend our house has been struck down with the dreaded cold! It is in a way expected at this time of year and with the drastic changes in weather lately. This is the first time Aidan has been sick (we are very lucky!) and it is horrible to watch. I know there is no way to cure a…

#wickedwednesday

Ellen / February 11, 2015

See that tiny dot at the bottom of the hill? Yes, that’s me? At Bluestone last week I thought it a great idea to hire some bikes and cycle the nature trail. About 5 minutes in I realised I had made a huge mistake. It was all shits and giggles speeding down the hills only to realise that meant cycling…
