If you’re planning a trip to Movie World on the Gold Coast then make sure you check out the Carnivale Nights. We were treated to a VIP night where we got to sample the delicious food. My favorite was the Seafood Chowder and the smoked ribs. Food prices on the night will suit everyone’s budget from a Seafood Broil …

There’s breakfast in bed, flowers, some lippy and sometimes even powertools bought by dad and dressed up as a ‘gift’ for mum…. This year, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra has made Mother’s Day super easy with the Happy Mother’s Day Concert, part of the incredibly loved Music on Sundays Program, being staged on Sunday 11 May at 11.30am in the Concert Hall at …

I was asked to review the new Piping Hot Clothing range that is currently in Target. So I did what we are all warned not to do. I tried to work with my children!

Thank god we don’t have any animals.

As you can see by most of the photos – they are selfies. Why? Because no one was …

War Horse Tickets $69-$132.90.

I was invited to attend the official opening night for War Horse at QPAC and without hesitation I accepted and took my mother along for the show.

Brisbane’s Lychee Lounge 


The first problem was getting the kids to be quiet for 40 seconds so I could record the …

When someone asks you to review a restaurant you don’t pick somewhere you have been before because well that’s just boring isn’t it.

SanChurro had been calling out to my chocolate desires for sometime now and the fact that the queue was considerably less …

QPAC played host to this remarkable play by the Queensland Theatre Company called Venus In Fur by David Ives.

It was witty, sexy and thought-provoking. If you read Fifty Shades of Grey then this play will interest  you and not because of the reference to S&M but some of the psychology behind it.

The lead actress Libby Munro was amazing. …

When asked us to review the noise level in 3 random restaurants we were excited. Not excited because we were going to eat out, excited because we were going to call it work and leave the kids at home.  :)

Obviously not taking our children decreased the volume level at our table dramatically and we were in fact able …

A Clockwork Orange Review

What better way to mark the 50th anniversary of Anthony Burgess’ literary cult masterpiece than to see it performed live by UK’s highly dynamic Action To The Word theatre company.

The award winning all-male cast, led by Martin McCreadie (as Alex DeLarge), takes its audience into a dark world, exploring themes of sexuality, youth and aggression with a fresh and …

Well the time has come to give up my new Chocolate addiction the Chocolate MealReplacement Shake as I reach the end of my 8 week challenge. I have got so used to the shakes that I am dreading returning to finding my own lunches and returning to that late afternoon hunger crash which I have NOT been experiencing at all.

So the …
