Road tripping Australia. Part 2 – The Eyre & Yorke Peninsulas.

If I thought South Australia’s beaches were beautiful during the first part of this trip, well these two peninsulas certainly blew my expectations! I had thought we’d be waiting for Western Australia before we hit the turquoise water and fine white sand, but I was wrong! Honestly, South Australia’s pristine beaches may just be this […]

Road tripping Australia. Part 1 – Limestone Coast, Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.

So this was supposed to be a Melbourne to Perth return road trip, but due to the devastating bushfires that Australia experienced this summer, we had to change plans mid-trip. I’ll get to that, but for now let’s start at the beginning… About a year ago, I had this crazy idea that we should buy […]

How we gently sleep trained Archie Pie.

I’ve had a huge response to our blog on sleep school and a lot of questions about the method we’ve used to gently sleep train Archie Pie, so rather than repeating myself a thousand times, I thought I’d do this post outlining the steps we used to go from co-sleeping and breastfeeding to sleep (and […]

Diary of a sleep school dropout.

So we did it. That thing I said we’d never do. Archer and I went to sleep school! Flynn was always a great sleeper. He took a dummy from just a few days old and easily settled himself off to sleep with it. He’d nap for 4 hours most mornings and an hour again in […]

Balnarring.

Go camping, she said. It’ll be fun, she said. Cue most rain we’ve seen in over a year. Despite the wet weather, we went ahead with our plans to take our beloved bell tent out for one last spin before we pick up our camper at the end of the month. We were camping 15 […]

Bali.

Melbourne winter was long and tough for me this year – the extra washing, the dark afternoons, being trapped inside with 2 toddlers. By the end of August I needed a break, and so we booked a little impromptu trip to Bali! I was craving sunshine, Vitamin Sea and watching my babes running around nude […]

Pie Turns One.

I promised myself I’d finish writing this blog within a week of his first birthday. He was 15 months yesterday… Anyway…. who is this big kid and what happened to that teeny tiny squishy newborn I just gave birth to? It’s cliché, I know, but it really does go so fast. Even more so the […]

Melbourne to Jervis Bay with little ones.

White sand. Turquoise water. Archie Pie. Travel Addict.A little while ago I received a promotional email titled “17 of the most incredible white sand beaches”. Hyams beach was the first paradise on that list. I knew instantly that I’d be sunning my mum-bod on that flour-white sand within a few months. And so our NSW […]
