HEALTH// Dry July ~ Alcohol Free July

Sunday, 26 June 2016

No I don’t have liver disease, No I’m not allergic to yeast and NO I am not pregnant. Since when did I live in a world where I need an excuse not to drink? I am not broken and drinking these days doesn’t do too much for me.  I JUST DON’T WANT TO DRINK ALCOHOL!

Two things that are common in almost every single person reading this lives- alcohol (because who doesn’t like a few- or plenty of glasses of booze) and Cancer, which sadly affects almost every one of us.

CHARITY// Gloria Jeans Cappuccino for a Cause

Thursday, 16 June 2016
 There is so much goodness to share; I have absolutely no real idea of where to start.



Maybe I will kick things off by saying Victoria (Australia) NOW HAS DRIVE THRU GLORIA JEANS. I don’t think there could have been any more perfect of a time to launch drive thru Gloria Jeans than winter. Annnnnd it just so happens to be located in Ravenhall right next to my gym- dangerous as I am a night-time work outer.



I was invited along to the Ravenhall store last night with a handful of selected bloggers to help raise awareness.

FOODIE// New Shanghai Emporium Melbourne

Monday, 13 June 2016

I was instantly transported into China when stepping foot into New Shanghai, located on level three in the food court at Emporium Melbourne. 

Looks are very deceiving when it comes to New Shanghai as it looks small from the front, but upon walking in I realized it could fit a whole lot more people around the side and back. 


My eyes were first drawn to the chefs (or as Madison called them the Dumpling artists/makers). A glass wall divided them from us as you stood there watching them absolutely work magic in creating all kinds of Dumpling goodness. 



We were sat down in no time at all and the wait staff were exceptional, always on the ready and wanting to help. 


Pricing on the food was exceptional, I can't believe how much value for money you got when eating here. 


First up was drinks. Matt ordered a beer (typical), Madison ordered freshly squeezed pineapple juice and I had their special mocktail (I can't recall the name of this but it was limited to the week). 

Then I was very overwhelmed with the menu, not being able to pick a single thing from
the rest. So instead we left it up to the waiter to order what he thought we would like (and boy did he get it right). 

One thing I want to mention as well, is if you're looking for somewhere to eat on little time then New Shanghai is perfect. The food came out at incredible speeds, and they were on the ball when it came to brining out the next course. 


First up was the Spring Onion pancakes. Fair to say that China (or Melbourne in this case) know their stuff when it comes to making pancakes. These weren't like our traditional pancakes at all, New Shangai make a perfect dough with spring onions through out frying up the goodness and serving them on the plate. This was definitely the perfect way to start the dining experience off. 


Then came prawn dumplings with a side of chilli sauce. Four little steamed dumplings came out and I didn't know how on Earth I would pick these slippery little suckers up with chopsticks. What did I do, went classy and stabbed the suckers impaling one on my chopstick of course. Madison at this point had already devoured two. I liked these a lot a lot and they were packed full of flavour. 


Next up was pan fried pork buns. These would have had to of been my favourite of the lot! As you broke into the bun the broth would ooze out creating a beautiful dipping sauce. 


They were so flavoursome with the perfect balance of flavours not to mention cooked to perfection. 

Just when we thought we couldn't fit anymore our waiter brought out mains. How on earth could I fit in anymore food without unbuttoning my top button haha. 


For mains we had a few things actually. But the first main to come out was Shaghai stir fried noodles with pork and vegetables. This was the biggest plate of food I have ever seen- and it was only $11.  


Then there was my favourite dish of the day- Rainbow beef (sweet and sour crispy beef) this was another huge serving, enough to feed our family of four! It was the perfect balance between sweet and sour, Madison said it tasted like meat lollies.  I loved that after getting passed the sweet and sour smoothness  I was greeted with this crunchy battered beef, the combination was sensational.


The last of the mains to come out was the Salt and pepper prawns. Matt loved these, I'm not huge on seafood so they weren't exactly a favorite of mine. Madison ate them as well, luckily she takes after Dad and eats anything.  They played them up very well, actually they plated everything up extremely well. Made taking photos easy, except being sat near a window lighting wasn't on my side. 

We were then asked if we would like to order dessert. But there was not a chance in hell I could make even a little room for dessert, we were all filled to full capacity. 

Mummy left full and happy 

Another great thing with New Shanghai, whatever you don't eat they are happy to pop in containers and have you take it home, which we did. I know what well be having for dinner if we can fit it- more New Shanghai!

FASHION// Very Special Kids Fashion Sale

Thursday, 9 June 2016
Calling ALL parent’s, shopaholic’s, fashionista’s, bargain hunter’s- HECK CALLLINNGG ERRBUDDY…

There are always events I attend that totally pull at my heartstrings, and in this case there was a time I was fighting back tears.




Being a Mum myself (to two very healthy girls, thankfully) I couldn’t imagine the pain and torture a family would have to go through having a less then healthy little one let alone one with a life threatening illness.

Very Special Kids support families caring for children with life-threatening conditions. Very Special Kids is Victoria’s only children’s hospice and supports over 900 Victorian families – free of charge. So in order to keep the hospice on it’s feet they need to find ways to raise $7million dollars each year, which is massive. But if you ask me, if everyone gives a little it will add to a lot at the end of the day.

Sadly, many of the children supported by Very Special Kids will not reach adulthood. For me this one sentence chills me to my absolute core, as I could never ever imagine having to bury my child, they are meant to bury me. And I cannot even imagine the pain and suffering anyone has to go through knowing that their little one might not wake up tomorrow.



Last night I was invited to VIP Fashion bloggers night hosted by Very Special Kids, previewing all that will be available at the Fashion Sale.



All the clothing supplied for the VSK Fashion Sale has been donated from top Australian and European brands will be on sale at up to 90% off the retail price.  I got to see first hand some of the pieces from Portmans, Rider, Lee, Dotti and a whole lot more that I wish lived in my wardrobe. I was absolutely dumbfounded at just how small the price tags are; you WILL definitely snatch up a bargain or many bargains.

Jess Dempsey  (www.whatwouldkarldo.com) a few years back put her hand up to become the Fashion Sale ambassador as she has a huge presence in the fashion industry as well as the blogging world. Being a Mum herself she makes for the perfect ambassador.

On the night we were able to change into pieces and have fun with styling- big thumbs up to Jess Dempsey for helping style me up. Here are some of the ensembles I came up with, pretty proud with them if I do say so myself.









I will be at the sale, and cannot wait to snatch up some great buys and much needed new additions to my wardrobe J Sorry not sorry credit card!

WARNING SHAMELESS VAGINA TALK// Vagisil

Sunday, 5 June 2016

WARNING POST CONTAINS TOO MUCH INFORMATION AND COVERS A TABOO TOPIC! Don’t say I didn’t warn you, I wont be holding back- never do.

Most guys love them, every female has one, but nobody likes talking about the taboo subject of Vaginas. But I’m here to break all the rules and talk about all things Vajayjay.

 
In this day and age the answer to most of our questions if not all can be found at our fingertips online. And I have often found myself on Dr.Google seeing what disease or why something was happening with my body, nine times out of ten I was dying- but hey, that’s another story.
