handful of spinach leaves
½ tsp Spirulina
¼ tsp turmeric powder
Okay, once juiced it doesn't look that green but close your eyes and you'll be pleasantly surprised. The ginger is very warming and this sensation is a good distraction from the actual colour of this juice.
To integrate into a daily green juice boost ritual and to cut down on preparation time I would cut up/divide everything prior and place your desired proportions into snap lock bags to be ready to grab from the fridge. I also like to save the pulp for my garden compost.

The spiderman and fairy costume were previous sale purchases and have been worn many times already. I recently purchased the lion outfit from Crazy Clarks for $14. The outfit is for size 3-5 so there is plenty of growing room.

It was easy to format the images by using the cropping and text box tools to get the placement of the images and text just right. There was a bit of cutting involved (pink frill template) however this was completed in front of the TV while the babes were sleeping and before I knew it they were all cut.
To make the holes in the frill template I used Fiskars small hole punch (a bargin buy from Spotlight). By the image, you can guess what she wants as the theme. I figure you only turn three once and I only have one daughter so it's nice to go to the effort (time permitting of course).

We searched the internet for its name however we resorted to sending a message and photo to the Queensland Museum for assistance. I will keep you updated if we receive a reply.
The kids took 'him' to Show and Share at Day Care however he is far too beautiful to be contained and we set him free in the afternoon.

This pecan pie represents more than just a pastry on a plate. Once a month a couple of girlfriends and I gather for brunch at a favourite local café. This pie represents time with friends, time for self and time to reflect on the small joys of life as a working mama. I love this time, this gathering and this connection with my friends. I also wish I had the recipe for this delicious pecan pie.

It's hard to believe it is late winter as the weather is simply beautiful here. There is so much colour surrounding us at this time of year. Inspired by all the pink, purple and blue berry hues I decided to experiment and make a berry smoothie.
1 cup low fat milk (approx.)
2 handfuls of fresh or frozen mixed berries
1 heaped tablespoon of yoghurt (low sugar)
1 heaped tablespoon of protein powder
Blitz the heck out of it.
Kitchen Note: This smoothie has a thick consistency.

Hello Dear Friends,
It has indeed been some time since my last post. I haven't forgotten you and I should have dropped a line or two to let you know that life has just been busy. The truth is for a while there I felt huge pressure to post every day because I didn't want to let you down. I realised this was an unreasonable expectation I placed on myself and it was only just adding more stress to my days as a busy working wife and mum of three. After my little one (above) caught a virus I just needed to focus on looking after him (he's better now) and as it seems...have a break from the online world. While in disconnection mode I realised I missed this space. I missed taking photos and I missed you. I am really hoping be around a bit more.
