{This is life} Some stories on “why I cheated on my husband”..

When you stand in your white dress, in front of your family and friends everything seems perfect.

Your future is bright, your lives are planned. You are loved up.

So how come sometimes the til-death-do-us-part doesn’t always come true?

They are honest and sad.

Maybe reading one of these will remind you of someone you know or make you aware of something in your relationship that might need addressing sooner rather than later.

 

 

{The Weekly Nest} March week 2 in review

So in review of this week, we start with some good news, the hubby-bird and I survived operation ‘construct-Ikea-furniture’ without any blood being drawn, any serious threats of divorce or deadly insults. We survived and I am diggin’ the organisation that is finally starting to happen in our nest.

It is funny during pregnancy how the little nesting vibe kicks in. All of a sudden I am on a rampage chucking stuff out, sending this to Vinnies and Martha Stewarting the shit out the place. The hubby-bird even joked that perhaps he should continue to knock me up every couple of years to maintain the world’s biggest spring clean. He is romantic like that.

In other ‘I-am-growing-a-massive-alien-in-my-belly-news’ my feet and ankles are still engorged. Now even my cankles have cankles AND what appear to fat rolls.

The toddler-bird kindly bought it to my attention yesterday that my toes look like mini-frankfurts now.  Such a kind kid that one. Really made my day hearing that fantastic observation from her.

In food news, this week one of our Nesters submitted a recipe for the most delicious Quinoa, roasted tomato, asparagus and goat’s cheese tart. We love when nesters get involved so if you have a family favourite that you would love to share please contact us! Thanks to Kellie for sharing this tart, it is healthy, delicious and a hit with the little birdies!

Another important thing we discovered this week was the Best Metaphor that ever been made in the world. It relates to consent and it is so important that the message be spread far and wide. A cup of tea is all it takes to understand when consent exists and when it does not. What you need to do is save it and read it to your little girls in the future. You need to show your little boys. You need to make sure this message is everywhere. I just honestly cannot believe that it took someone this long to come up with it. tea

One of our most popular posts this week was some advice from our favourite kindergarten teacher, Miss Mac. She gave us some information on How to Settle In, Make Nice and Not Piss Off Your School. Starting school can be daunting but thanks to advice from Miss Mac you can help your child adjust quickly.

{Girl Crush Tuesday} The fabulous Ms Frank

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place.

Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4

Today’s girl crush is on the fantastically talented and very successful Jackie Frank.

Jackie is the editor and publisher of Marie Claire Australia. She is powerfully smart and epitomises girl power at its absolute finest.

Professionally, together with her fantastic team she has bought Marie Claire Australia to the forefront of any fashion lovers bookshelf and is officially the go-to for any fashion conscious Australian woman. Quite remarkably, Marie Claire Australia in combination with its sister editions are read by thirteen million women in 26 countries each month. As further evidence of the success achieved while being captained by Jackie, Marie Claire Australia was recognised as Magazine of the year in 2001 at the Magazine Publishers of Australia Awards.

What makes Jackie even more remarkable is that she is not afraid to voice her opinion when something just doesn’t seem right. She stands up for women’s rights and is publically known for her stand against models who are unhealthily thin. She is also completely passionate about equal marriage in Australia, and across the world.

As if editing Australia’s most beautiful magazine is not enough, Jackie is also successful personally as a mother to two beautiful children.

Thank you Ms Frank for giving all little girls someone to admire. You show that hard work, perseverance and self-belief are the cornerstone for a successful career. Girls really can have it all.
