Having children is tough?   No one is handed a “How To” book when their children are born.   In my experience, with having twins, everyone has an opinion on what good looks like or what should be done.   I know in the past this has made me question myself so many times.   As my children have gotten older, the challenges have changed. What I used to look on as difficult, I wonder now why I ever worried.   Perhaps the guilt has increased with the increase in the us...

  I know exactly how you may be feeling.   You were excited and planned to eat healthy and avoid temptations over Christmas. You felt confident that this time you were going to do it: but the festive season settled in and you got a little too merry and threw all rationality out the window and just went with the flow and thought to yourself, “I deserve this”   And can you guess what happened?   Those extra treats have turned into extra kilos… And you may be feeling angry a...

Over the last few months I’ve been presenting at various Rotary Clubs across Melbourne and Victoria discussing sustainability and downsizing. I have frequently been sharing my views on using what you have and injecting new life into your home using current pieces and adding a few additions to create impact. I thought I’d cover this topic and highlight quick and easy ways to create a revitalised interior, when you feel like you need a change, but don’t necessarily want to spend a fortune. I have ...

Katrina verso conceived the idea for Cammino after a long career in media in Melbourne’s CBD. She was one of the many women who collected ballet flats under their desk for some relief from the day in heels. A common challenge she encountered was that we all searched for a shoe that was as comfortable as it was stylish but also stood the test of time. And those flats were hard to find! So this, coupled with a love of the quality workmanship of shoes made in Italy inspired her to create this label...

Being a corporate stress head was all I ever knew for 20 years. It was what was the norm, almost as though you had to be that way to be seen as a high performer. It came at such a price though. I was constantly sick with colds, migraines, PCOS, and even whooping cough! No-one ever mentioned that it might be because I was stressed, eating rubbish, drinking like a pirate and the most exercise I go was signing the membership form at various gyms. (who hasn’t signed up to a gym and then never actual...

Active Truth was created by co-founders Nadia Tucker and Stevie Angel after a number of negative shopping experiences trying to buy beautifully printed tights that would perform as promised through a workout. We started the business in 2016 with an initial investment of around $10K each. In our second year of business, our turnover was $2million. We recently won a Queensland Telstra Business Award in the 'Emerging & Energised' category. We saw a gap in the market for a brand that not only servic...

Hi, my name is Meaghan and I'd love to tell my journey so far.  Since I was a child, all I wanted to be was a chef. I also had a fascination with all things African. I used to watch my mum cook, and I swear she did magic-that woman can cook. I did home economics in school, but alas I couldn't cook-but my presentation was superb. I then went and did my apprenticeship and became a chef. I was the happiest and living the dream-until 6 years ago when I got carpel tunnel in both hands-I was devasted,...

I am the owner of Caroline's Angels Baby Sleep Specialists. I was a Midwife when I had my first baby in 1997. He was a very difficult sleeper and over the first few years of his life, we sought outside help to support my husband and I with him. We were sleep deprived, exhausted and frustrated. While we were grateful for any support we could get, we found the strategies that were offered to us, just made our son worse and we continued in this very difficult cycle until he was around 2.   I found ...

You know the age old saying about what goes on behind closed doors? Well that sums up my family the one I grew up in! All polished on the outside, smiley shiny happy normal functional people - but with a deep dark secret, one that no one knew of that was so tightly kept. My name is Adele and this is my story, and what I aim to achieve out of sharing it with people is for them to know that perfect doesn’t work. Perfect isn’t possible. Perfect is exhausting. ** This is by no means a political piec...
