So, I've taken some time out to re-evaluate this blog and assess whether I was happy with it and where it was going. The answer was no. I've spent the last month refocusing my attention on creating a cleaner, more focused and (hopefully) hilarious blog. It's called the Australian Nanny and you can find it … Continue reading I’VE GOT A NEW BLOG
As most of you know I (pretty) diligently put up a blog post every Sunday or Monday. This past week I didn't. This isn't because I was feeling lazy, or had something better to do or was just plain busy, it was because my little world was completely shattered on Friday night when my boyfriend … Continue reading MY WORLD IS UPSIDE DOWN
Deciding to go vegan, or even vegetarian, hell to even resolve to make any dietary change, can be incredibly daunting. There is a plethora of information on the web from places like PETA to instagrammers who post what they eat in a day and shove loads of nutritional 'information' down their viewers throats. So, I … Continue reading VEGAN KITCHEN STAPLES
I was a fangirl. I was completely smitten with a handful of bands from my hometown. I owned all their albums (on CD and vinyl, might I add) and I saw them live at every chance I got. As I've gotten older the hormones have subsided and I've just generally grown out of fantasising being … Continue reading A BAND FROM PERTH PLAY LONDON
Since I moved to the United Kingdom in January last year I've been itching to explore a topic I feel is wrought with complexity but goes by unspoken about. I am, as the title of this post would suggest, talking about being a Nanny. In Australia it's hailed as something akin to a right of … Continue reading ON BEING A NANNY
Oh, hey there Canada! And you too Seattle! A few months ago I got a message from an old high-school friend of mine that basically said 'last time we spoke you said that you've always wanted to visit Canada, so I was thinking why don't we go? Why don't we go this December and do … Continue reading HELLO CANADA!
I've never known people like this. I've never lived in a city brimming with so much resilience and pride and endurance. I come from a country that often cowers and hides and chooses to bury the truth deep into the red sunburned Earth. But here, in London, there's no shyness or trepidation. I feel completely … Continue reading THE ONLY THING THAT WILL EVER HOLD THE POWER TO DEFEAT THE ENTIRE POPULATION IN THE UK IS A SLIGHT CHANGE IN THE WEATHER
The first flat I've rented all by myself with my own money, with a signed and sealed lease and bills coming out the wazoo is the flat I'm in now in dingy old East London. I don't live there all by myself- I have three housemates and a boyfriend who tends to keep the dining … Continue reading DISHEVELED ORGANIZATION
I haven't written a blog post in a while. The reality is I've just felt so overwhelmed by day-to-day life for the past few weeks that I couldn't formulate something to write about. In three weeks I've been off anti-depressants then come back on them, adjusted to my boyfriend landing a new job with hours … Continue reading ABSENT
'What the fuck do you eat?' is probably one of the most common questions I get asked as a vegan. To a meat eater or even a vegetarian I can completely understand how perplexing it must seem that someone is able to enjoy let alone survive on a diet consisting solely of plants. So, I … Continue reading WHAT DO VEGANS EAT?
