Taking a back seat

Knock knock.
Who's there?
No seriously, is anyone still reading out there?!

I haven't been doing much on the blogging front lately and I apologize!
I'm just about to head off to Louisiana, USA in less than two weeks time so hopefully I'll have lots of interesting things to share.
Once I'm back home I'll definitely be whipping up some new recipes to share with you all as well, any suggestions?

I'm currently loving working on portraits and petography (is that not the cutest term?) so hopefully I'll be able to share some of that with you too!

Mother's Day

There is no one in the world quite like your Mum.
They're there for you no matter what, they pick you up when you're down -
dust you off, fix you up and put you back on your feet.

My Mum is my best friend. 
I'm one of the lucky daughters who can have both a mother/daughter relationship and a best friend relationship with their Mum - and I couldn't ask for anything better.

Sunday, May 13 is Mother's Day - the day where you really should spoil your mum, grandma or whatever special lady in your life. 
Sure, I believe they should be spoiled every day - but we're all human and we often get lost in our own little worlds and forget to show our appreciation for the ones we love.

And what better way to spoil your Mum (or whoever!) than with a gorgeous box of chocolates?!
Butler's Chocolate Selection is perfectly wrapped for Mother's Day and tied with a pretty pink ribbon.
Once your Mum opens the box, she'll find their luxury Irish chocolate truffles and pralines 
with flavours like walnut ganache, chocolate flake, crispy praline and raspberry sorbet.

You can buy the chocolates online or from a number of stockists around the country - just see their facebook page to find out your closest store!

So tell me, 
What's the best thing about your Mum? 
and what's your favourite chocolate flavour?

Nutritious and Delicious

There's nothing more delicious than breakfast, in my opinion. 
It's my favourite meal the day and is what gets me energised for my day.
I'm also a fan of supporting local businesses, so when I received a package from Kuranda I knew it was going to be good. 

Kuranda started out of a cottage kitchen in the Atherton tablelands of far north Queensland. 
First they began selling their health bars into the local farmers market and they soon became popular with the locals. 
While holidaying in Cairns, Maria Peronace stumbled across the health bars and fell in love - so much so that she acquired Kuranda Fine Foods and the Aussie Snax Brands.
Maria continued making the bars true to their original recipe and launched the bars across the country in 2006. Today, Aussie Health Snax also exports to Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

All of the products are made by hand, just like they originally were!
All of the Kuranda products are;
- Gluten Free
- Wheat Free
- Dairy Free
- Low GI

The Spiced Apple with Quinoa Muesli has no added sugar and high in omega 3.
It's a mix of rice flakes, puffed brown rice and puffed quinoa mixed with flaxseed, diced apple, cinnamon, pepitas and sunflower seeds.
It's the perfect muesli to give you energy for whatever your day has in store for you and is an ideal balance of protein and carbohydrates.

The Banana and Date with Amaranth Muesli is high in protein and fibre and contains no added sugar.
It's a delicious mix of banana, dates, whole almonds, sunflower seeds, pepitas, puffed rice, rice flakes and amaranth. 
This muesli is a delicious way to easily get more fibre into your diet.

The Berry Blend with Amaranth Muesli is rich in antioxidants and high in fibre.
It's a mix of cranberries, whole almonds, sunflower seeds, pepitas, puffed rice, rice flakes and amaranth.

The Tropical Blend with Quinoa Muesli is rich in Iron and Calcium. 
It's a blend of tropical dried pineapple, coconut, dried apricots, apple, pepitas, sunflower seeds, rice flakes and puffed brown rice and quinoa.

Kuranda Muesli is available at their online store as well as a number of stockists across the country.

So tell me, 
What's your favourite breakfast cereal?
and Do you have a favourite local company/small business?

Taking a moment

To step back.
To appreciate.
To admire.
To absorb.
To enjoy.

Sometimes that's just what you need in this busy world,
whether it be nature, the world around you or your loved ones.

What's one thing you've taken a moment to absorb lately?

I was lucky enough to have this beautiful view which made me realise,
I am more than blessed to live in such a beautiful city.
