Happy Australia Day!!

Happy Australia Day

So today is the day I usually update my blogs but it’s Australia Day!! So I won’t be blogging today, instead I will be wearing patriotic clothes and a thousand temporary tattoos and watching fireworks and having BBQ’s!

Australia Day is my favourite public holiday ever and for the first time in a million years I have the whole day off. So I am going to take advantage!

So everyone I hope you enjoy your Oz day no matter where you are! Pics of today will be up tomorrow. Ash and I look hot to trot

Love lots Caz (and Ash) xoxo xxxx

I have something very important to tell you all....


This is the best cereal on Earth. Yes that's right on Earth, and you know what, I don't even like cereal...or breakfast in general but I have been eating this stuff like crazy. It.is.awesome. It is Australian made and this Deluxe Fruit one is Gluten Free!! Great news for all you suffering Coeliac's out there! It is also low GI which is good for those on a diabetic diet. No preservatives, high in fibre but for everyone who doesn't care about any of that shit, the most important part is that it tastes AMAZING! It even has cinnamon in it so it gives the milk a really great taste.

Aaaahhh it's so good! Please please do yourself a favour, go to the shops and try it out. You will not regret it. There are lots of different types and yes....it comes in a fruit free variety for all you crazy people who don't like fruit in cereal.

Carman's also makes muesli bars, I can't remember which ones I tried but it tasted like apple pie and was to die for. For more info about the brand and their products you can go to their website which has info on all the products plus the story behind Carman's and all the nutritional info you can poke a stick at.

Go write it on your shopping list right now. You can thank me in the comments for introducing you to your new favourite cereal.

Love always!

Just Quickly

I haven’t slept in till midday in ages. Like over the past year I have probably only done it a handful of times. So I am reaaaaaaally fucking sick of people looking at me in the morning and saying

“Geez you’re up early Carrie it’s before midday! LOL”

It isn’t funny, it really really fucking pisses me off. Besides the only reason I did used to sleep in is because my job had me working late so I wouldn’t get to sleep till 2am. I’d like to see all you people getting up nice and early all chipper after working all night and only getting 6 hours sleep.

I work early most days now and on my days off I have Bayley. My body clock doesn’t let me sleep in even if I want to. It would be nice if you people actually paid attention to me. Then maybe you’d notice these things.

P.s. yes someone said this to me this morning hence why I wrote this and hence why I am still shitty about it.

and this time…I mean it!

Hey everyone

So, if you follow me on Twitter you may have noticed that I had a minor complete meltdown yesterday, (when I say minor..I mean major), some of you may have seen it coming but most of you probably didn’t because I have always been the master of hiding what is going on inside my head.

I’m not going to pour my heart out here and tell you what is wrong and why i went momentarily insane because really it would be a waste of time now, I am not looking for sympathy and my need to vent has long since passed. I am however here to say that the last week, my ‘holiday’ which didn’t help with my stress levels at all, only made them worse and my subsequent breakdown has spawned a new Carrie.

There are a two main reactions people have when bad shit happens to them or around them. Number one is to put on a happy face, act like it ok and that you aren’t too affected or bothered, don’t let anyone see the pain you are in, denial, denial, denial. Then when you are alone you suffer, you cry, you get angry, you want to throw things, you are in your car and think “hey why not just drive it into that tree”. Not a good way to deal with things.

Or, number two, you can put aside your pride, check your ego at the door and you fight. You don’t let the bullshit consume you. Don’t let people take you down. Don’t take no for an answer. Fight for what is yours and fight for what you want.

Bullshit and fuckery happens to everyone, and what is shit for one person may seem like nothing to someone else. What makes a person is how they deal with it, you can either be a product of the shit, forever living in it’s shadow and let it influence every decision you make or you can learn from it, vow not to let it happen again and make changes in your life to ensure that happens for you.

My reaction? A little bit of number one obviously. I do that a lot to be honest, I skate the edges of number one and number two and it isn’t good enough. I know that now. So after my breakdown, after I calmed down I started reading ‘The 4-Hour Workweek’ by Timothy Ferriss and decided I need to detox my life. Tomorrow begins today, right now because tomorrow isn’t soon enough.

So changes changes, I know I have said this before, hence the title of this post, but I am completely at the end of my rope now. I am starting by working less hours at Mash. I am going to request to work one day less. This may seem strange seeing as you would think I would need to the money but if things go to plan I hope to open up other income streams that will allow me to work less and less at Mash and more and more at home (or anywhere!) and on my terms.

Second step I need to de-clutter my room. if you have been in my room you will know what I am talking about. The problem isn’t necessarily the mess, it’s more the fact that I have lots of stuff and not a lot of room to put it. I need to raid my wardrobe and throw out all of the shit I don’t wear or don’t like. I need to get rid of my old school work and books that I don’t actually need but hang onto for crazy reasons. Then I need to set up my workspace so it inspires me to work and create. Then from there it’s all about research and planning and making things happen!

Watch this space everyone because things are only going to get better from here on in. I won’t let the rat race run circles around me anymore and neither should you.

Love and good vibes!

Caz xoxo xxxx

Sweet Sweet Summer

Ahhhh summer is finally here! Sorry I haven't been around again but I have been super busy and also just got home from Bremer Bay which FYI only has Telstra reception. Remember that if you ever have to go down there. I'll be doing an epic blog about that trip later but for now I have lots of catching up and cleaning to do so really this post is kinda just to say Hi, I am still alive and I will be back on soon!

Love Caz xoxo xxxx

P.s. Went into Wombat Lodge today and I am so in love with it!
