Can't believe it happened! Reaching the next stage in life...

Can't believe it happened! Reaching the next stage in life...

Notice something? See Princess Anna there (above left)?
Well... as well as our shared love of chocolate, singing & building snowmen, we also have something else in common.

(Hang on while I just go back & sing that fav line of mine: 'I wanna stuff some chocolate in my faaaaace'! 
OK, phew, thanks for letting me get that out.)

OK, so while Princess Anna's streak of white hair was caused by her sister Elsa's powers, the new 'silver' strand that has recently appeared on MY head is my FIRST grey hair!

Instead of being all 'Don't let them in, don't let them see', I've decided to come clean with this huge revelation.
Even though I have many pals who've been rocking greys since their twenties, it's not something I saw coming. At 32, the grey has caught me by surprise.

Surprise you say? Yes, I'm surprised it took SO LONG for the greys to make their appearance.
It's been a busy/hectic/crazy/stressful/amazing/wonderful couple of months juggling newborn twins, a then-1year-old & then-3-year-old (who have since turned 2 and 4). 

I would've thought those greys would've been sprouting all over my head months ago for sure.
So the one grey I've located I can handle.

Although I will admit that when I saw the unmistakeable sparkle whilst I was reviewing my appearance in the car mirror while doing my make-up - a shriek (& 'what the holy mother of god is that?!) may have been heard by passers by.

It's an interesting stage of life. A sign of what's to come.
I'm thankful for all the years I've managed to rock my natural brunette locks & will take this new stage in my stride as I'm thankful to be happy & healthy & to have a happy & healthy husband and children.

Besides, Miss 4 will love my new Cruella de Vil look! 

Oh well, 'the greys will never bother me anyway'.

When did you find your first grey hair? What was your reaction?

Brad and Angelina officially MARRIED

Brad and Angelina officially MARRIED

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have tied the knot.
Yes, they're officially MARRIED!

According to the Mail Online, a spokesperson has confirmed that the couple, known as BRANGELINA, exchanged vows in France last weekend.

Wow! Congratulations to the happy couple and their brood.
Do you think we'll ever get to see wedding pics or will they manage to keep it all under wraps like Beyoncé and Jay-Z?

What kind of dress do you think Angelina wore for her big day?

A change is in the air...

A change is in the air...

Last night I made a huge life-changing decision.
It has been on my mind for a while and I decided to go ahead and take the plunge - with my husband's full support of course.

So far this year I have enjoyed (most of the time ;-) being able to stay home on maternity leave with my four children (twin girls aged 9 months, a 2yo boy and a 4yo girl).
It has become evident that despite the constant chaos, tail chasing and never-ending laundry pile, I actually LOVE to be busy.
I have enjoyed, and will continue to enjoy, putting my skills to good use in a volunteer or paid capacity.

Sooo after seeing the success a friend of mine has achieved with her new business (think all expenses paid trips to Greece, US and Mexico!), I've decided to throw my hat in the ring and become an Independent Scentsy Consultant.

Check out my page here:

What does this mean?
I'll still blog when time permits, will still do all the other bits and bobs I do, but this great new opportunity means I'll be able to make some extra cash while working from home with my four children under four. 

I can continue to enjoy regular activities with my little ones such as play dates, painting, cooking, and jumping on the trampoline all day every day.
I can set aside time to build my business to control my own success (at the crazy hours that suit me). ANNNND I can help other fab women realise their true potential and achieve their dreams.

Friends, don't worry, I won't be hounding you (but I really do want to let you in on this fabulous new opportunity that is still quite new here in Oz as I hear that the possibilities are endless and I'm actually pretty excited!).

So what is Scentsy?
BC (before kids) I loved lighting candles around my home. The smell. The ambience.
These days it's just not practical or safe. However, I have found you can achieve the same look and feel with a Scentsy Warmer. A safe, flameless, wickless alternative to scented candles. The warmers melt the scented wax. It's safe near children and pets. No mess, no fuss. Just a gorgeous scent and gorgeous atmosphere.
See how it all works here:
There is also a bunch of other gorgeous products for use around your home.

It's such an exciting time and I look forward to sharing bits and pieces with you - and hope you might even like to join me or show your support by hosting a party, basket party or online party.
Feel free to check out the products and place an order any time:

It's an exciting new journey - a path I actually never thought I'd take - but now that I am - it ALL MAKES PERFECT SENSE!
Everything is falling into place!
