When I was pregnant with my now 3-year-old Son, like most first-time Moms, I had no idea what to expect, how I was going to cope, what to do or how being a parent was forever going to change my life. You know, you prepare as much as you can reading books and talking to other people; but you just do not get it entirely, until you have a bundle of joy cradled in your arms looking up at you like you are the Bees Knees.

Natural Beauty Products; make your own
The holidays are fast approaching, too fast if you ask me, it seems like yesterday it was the beginning of Spring and I was pottering around in the soil getting my garden ready.
I am not sure about you, but for me, the holidays bring a lot of angst, as I just never seem to organize my loved and appreciated ones gifts in time. It is always a last-minute rush to get everything in order by Christmas Eve; when Father Christmas comes down the Chimney!
Disney Frozen, because some Movies are worth writing about
The cold weather is in full effect here in New York City. Yep, there is no turning back; it is full pledge gloves, beanies and spencer (Australian for thermals) weather.
Being a Stay At Home Mum & having a 3 year-old-Son who is bustling with energy, I am experiencing a new stage with him again. What do I do to keep him busy when it is too cold to spend time outdoors? If you ask me this question again, once Winter is over, I am sure I will be able to reel off a bevy of answers. But for now, I know that movies are a suitable option!
Vegan Minestrone Soup; inspired by Food Revolution
A few months ago, while on twitter, I saw that UK Chef, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution were looking for volunteer food ambassadors.
Food Revolution is a Non-Profit Global Organization with the goal of educating people how to eat healthier. One of the ways this is being done is by teaching Children the basics of cooking their own food. It seems like a simple thing, but unfortunately food education in schools is no longer a priority (as it was when I was growing up). In fact, here in the USA many schools do not even include food education in their curriculum at all!
