    5 shows I’ve binge watched #4

    I don’t know about you guys, but I am always thinking about what I am going to watch next on TV or on a streaming app. I mean, I do think about other things, but this is my lovely relaxation moment, you know? My favourite part of the evening is when the kids are in bed and I can snuggle up with Mr Unprepared and watch something in the quiet together. I know. Wild, right? I love so much that in 2019 we can CHOOSE what we want to watch at any given time. Remember the days when we had to try our luck with what was on like 5…

    When it’s more than just a teen rom-com.

    I am what some people (including myself) would dub a ‘banana’. Yellow on the outside and white on the inside. That is, I look completely and utterly Asian, but my husband likes to laugh and call me the whitest person ever (he can talk)! I am sure some would use that term in a derogative fashion, but for me it’s always just been a source of humour. A way of coping with being ‘different’. My fellow adopted Korean friend and I even call each other B1 and B2 affectionately. That’s a Bananas in Pyjamas reference, in case you missed it. Basically, I am Asian but I grew up in what…

    The last 5 shows I’ve binge watched #2

    Gosh, I love a good TV binge. I honestly cannot remember life before Netflix and various other catch up apps. Not to mention, I still have an ongoing love affair with my precious DVR! Here are the latest things I’ve been devouring! The Wrong Girl source: Channel 10 Last year, I was unable to ever watch the show while it was airing on TV. I didn’t want to come in half way and have the magic ruined, so I waited until I could binge watch season 1 before season 2 began (it’s still playing weekly on Ten). In the mean time, I read the book and I felt ready. It’s…

    The last 5 shows I’ve binge watched.

    …and by binge watched, I mean the last 5 shows I’ve probably watched about half an episode at a time because I had to wait for Mr Unprepared or because I fell asleep too early or because he fell asleep too early or because the Tour de France is currently happening and a certain *cough* cycling enthusiast is annoyingly preoccupied… In saying that, I also get to watch some stuff alone that I know I could never convince him about so it’s temporarily a win/win situation…I guess! Anyway, I am not going to defend all of my choices. Sometimes I’m a little left of centre or even a bit dorky…

    Mood boosting music.

    I know I probably sound like a broken record, but END OF SCHOOL HOLIDAYS – AM I RIGHT? I am trying to find anything I can to keep myself limping to the finish line! I love love love my kid and for the most part we’ve had a lot of fun together since school broke up, but I am tired, I can’t remember when I last had any decent time alone in the quiet and I’ve started to fantasise about doing impossible things like getting my nails done, having a hair appointment (something I rarely do even during the school term), going to the toilet without anyone panicking that I’ve fallen…

    Books I really want to read.

    I don’t read enough books. Which is a travesty, because I quite like a good book and I don’t want to brag, but I’m pretty good at reading. Even better at it than I am at writing (OMG I KNOW). I read take-out menus, blogs, really bad clickbait articles about the Kardashians and week old newspapers I find on my parents’ dining table when I visit, but I suck at treating myself to a good book. I only seem to think about books just before I travel somewhere. I find I get my best reading done on a camping trip or a (child free) plane ride. After everyone climbs into…

    Kez Gets Physical: 5 more songs to work out to.

      Oh my goodness. I haven’t worked out in maybe two or three weeks? To be honest, I have kind of lost track it feels like so long. First, I was already experiencing a bit of a slump and then illness entered my house. Again. Ugh. First Mr Unprepared came down with the dreaded gastro bug (during which he was strictly quarantined while I sanitised/disinfected to within an inch of all our lives), while the Little Mister came down with a cold. I probably shouldn’t have smugly celebrated surviving that weekend illness free. Because it seems my body had a case of the FOMO and wanted to try a bit of each,…

    Dettol giveaway!

    Sponsored post Oh my goodness. I have never been so excited about household cleaning products as I have since I became a parent. I am no domestic goddess, but oh, the things I have seen. It can scare even the less-than-prudent (understatement in my case much?) house keeper straight. Just the fear of the whole family coming down with a group illness is enough for me! Sometimes sharing is just not caring!!! All those missed days of work and day care. We’re already racking up the absences and winter hasn’t even kicked in properly yet! Eek. I’m definitely not a germ-o-phobe. I’ve got no problem with a bit of dirt…

    No mo’ lady mo’.

    Products by Veet provided for my honest review I have to preface this by saying that I am not a beauty blogger. If I was, I might actually know what I’m talking about. But I’m not. I am an every day 30 year old (for two more weeks so it totally counts) mama who worries about my family’s future…and whether or not I will grow a moustache and sideburns as I get older. Yep. That’s right. Look, I’m not the hairiest person on the planet. Maybe it’s my Asian genes. Maybe it’s just luck. I can grow my leg hair forever before anyone would notice it. I like to think…

    Feel good Christmas gift ideas that won’t break the bank.

    Sponsored by GroupTogether When I think of Christmas, I think of the act of giving. I think of the ways in which we can show the people in our lives that we care about them and that we have appreciated them throughout the whole year. Christmas to me is about togetherness. In the ever increasingly commercialised world that we live in, we could almost be forgiven for thinking that it’s about ‘stuff’ and ‘money’ and ‘more is better’, but we don’t have to remortgage the house each year to please those we care about. Truly. A little imagination and a lot of love can go a long way (which is…
