How to keep your sanity when you are a Mum of FIVE boys

Ever wondered how someone with five children gets through each day? I took the opportunity to ask an extraordinary Mum about her experience, and what she would recommend to new Mums starting out their journey. Nicole, a Mum of five boys (I know, right!) spoke openly to me about parenting en masse and creating a harmonious blended family. Let me preface this by saying Nic is intimidatingly gorgeous. Beyond her stunning figure, warm smile and oh-so-on-trend style, she is honest, funny and kind. She's the kind of girl you want to hang out with and someone who makes you feel...

Sometimes you've got to give up something to move forward

  Through luck and chance I met Dr Amanda Waaldyk.  She is brave, intelligent, kind and a high achiever. We shared breakfast this morning and I was engaged by her warmth and generosity. Before seeing an Instagram post for an event which she was speaking at, I’d never even heard of her. That’s not a bad thing given her special skill is supporting women with Fertility challenges and as Amanda describes ‘facilitating baby making’. My conception journey did not require such intervention or support, so we had not crossed paths until now.  At the event Amanda shared her own journey with...

Harry Potter J.K. Rowling practical Queen

If I use my real name, maybe the boys won't like me....

J.K. Rowling could easily fit in with your friends at a BBQ. She looks and behaves like an ordinary Mum, and is said to be the first to lend a hand washing dishes at any given dinner party. She’s just like all of us, though now she has exceptional wealth and a platform which advocates for the greater good. Rowling has lived a "rags to riches" life story, in which she progressed from living on state benefits to multi-millionaire status within five years. She is the United Kingdom's best-selling living author, with sales in excess of £238M. The 2016 Sunday Times Rich List...

"They only give tough jobs to Women" says Susan Alberti AC

Like good wine, some things get better with age. Susan Alberti is a perfect example of this and may well be crowned the Queen of Women’s Football. Having been the driving force behind the establishment of the Women’s AFL, Susan is a woman to be reckoned with. Just shy of her 70th birthday she has almost single handedly made history happen. When she joined the Western Bulldogs’ (AFL) board in 2004, it was her task to fix the rundown home ground at Whitten Oval. “The job they gave me was to find $32 million,” she says. “They only give tough jobs...
