1. Where do you reside?
2. What is special about where you live?
We recently moved from the city to the area we live now, and we love it. I loved the city and how it always had something new and exciting, but the pace at which we live now is lovely. Plus the area is so unspoiled. We’ve had such much fun exploring new beaches and places to swim.
3. How long have you had your business/blog/job?
I’ve been blogging for 6 years this year, but only really made it into a business in the last 2 years.
4. What is your favourite childhood memory?
I loved just hanging out with my siblings, whether it was riding bikes, swimming in the pool, jumping on the trampoline or the funny fights we used to have. Those are my favourite memories.
5. What are some memories that you like to create for your children?
I’d love for my girls to have the same fun relationships I had with my siblings, and I’d love to add in a few travel memories too.
6. Who inspires you and why?
I love to be inspired by everyday people who do extraordinary things. People that take leaps of faith, and give things a try; I love those people.
7. Describe your perfect day?
I love to wake up early, before everyone else, and I’d love to have a yummy breakfast and fresh juice. Then a walk on the beach with the family, and the dog. Some photo-taking. Sushi for lunch. Play-time with the girls. And then having family and friends over for dinner.
8. Favourite holiday destination?
I love the States, but I can’t wait to get back to Fiji this year too. I’m happy to go anywhere!

My laptop, a good cleanser, Michael by Michael perfume, an empty notepad and a good pen.
10. What is one product you have bought that you did not need but just had to have?
I bought a Thermomix because I thought it might make my life easier. I go through periods when I fall in love with it, and others when it just plain scares me.

Sushi if we’re eating out, and we’re eating at home then we do love tacos.
