My Low-down on Screenagers

Monday night’s screening of the documentary ‘Screenagers’ was a huge success for Sydneymum. We thank all you who joined us and hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did. It was a lovely opportunity for Sharon and I to meet some of you, our readership, and get some feedback on other ideas for future Sydneymum events. ‘Screenagers’, what was it all about? As the title says it was a documentary that ‘probes into the vulnerable...

Indoor activities to do with kids in Sydney

To mix up our posts up a bit and with school holidays around the corner, Sharon and I thought we would share our favourite places to take the kids.

As always, if you can think of any others please feel free to leave a comment and share them. https://www.airbnb.ie/things-to-do/insider-guidebook/502   Share...

Home Living and Lifestyle Trends from Europe

For those of you who know me well, I love keeping informed of emerging home trends that are here to stay for a little while… One of the fun parts of having always been immersed in colour and design is checking out what’s happening in Milan and having the opportunity to forecast future trends. I love learning about the contextual relationships surrounding home trends. Why are they happening? Why the change? Right now one of the biggest...

Four Money Personality Types

What do personality types have to do with money? Well, I have two kids and over Halloween I give them two identical buckets which they fill by going from house to house. By the time we get home my son, bless him, has eaten or given all his lollies away and complaining of a sore tummy. My daughter, however, still has a bucket of lollies to add to her ones from last year. What’s the link between lollies and money? Well, you could...

‘Days of Future Past’ or Reflections on Childhood

Strange days, here we come! It’s interesting how life has this way of throwing things at us that we are not ready for. Last July I had to fly back to France – an emergency with my parents, during which and quite unexpectedly, I had to find a retirement home for them. On my last day, I went to see them in their “new” home then went back to their “old”, now empty home with a heavy heart, proceeded to empty the fridge, clean out...

Vale Tara Hunt

Our world lost an extraordinary human being last weekend. Tara Hunt was a smart, kind, passionate woman who cared deeply about people and our planet. Those of us who knew her are heartbroken and left wondering how… why… why can’t it be the shitty people who are taken away? Of all the people. There’s just no explaining it. As I sniffle through this morning with sadness and a cold I reminded myself to be grateful...

Kids are our future: Education is important

Kids do notice what we do… Let me explain why I say that our children notice our actions; they emulate what we do even if we don’t think they do. Last week I attended my graduation ceremony for my Masters in Education. It has taken me 3 years to complete – 3 fun, satisfying and intellectually stimulating years. Now don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t a walk in the park, there were many really late nights and many weekends spent at the...

Whole Foods, Wholey Foods

When Natasha of Wholey Foods worked at Coke and Kellogg’s in marketing she wasn’t conscious of the food she was eating; then she started feeding a family. “I guess like many mums when I had a family I reconsidered my priorities around food. Suddenly, I wanted to do what was best and it took me on this whole journey of looking at what we were eating. I started looking closely at ingredients and nutrition panels. I wanted to...

Four reasons a woman’s financial needs are different

The Federal budget that was just released, I thought it would be interesting to talk about one thing it omits – the difference between a woman’s and a man’s financial needs. It is a given most financial planners are men, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that financial plans are built around them. A woman’s needs are a little different. Firstly, women live longer than men and it’s wonderful! Unfortunately, longevity comes at a cost –...

What is the perfect age gap between kids?

Hello Beautiful People, The Age Gap! The mummy fatigue is still at its peak. I’ve conversed with my husband a lot about this fatigue lately, for a few reasons. Although we are raising six children with everyone expecting us to be exhausted, we’ve concluded that our last two beautiful babies are the absolute reasons for our complete and utter parental exhaustion! ‘Super hero parents’ that have crashed and burned! We know...
