LOL Christmas Giveaway!

We have so much to celebrate this month – our blog is finally live, it’s Christmas next week and Tiah’s birthday is a few days after. I asked her what she would give away as a prize for someone to win as a thank-you for supporting us on our journey to turn a little dream into reality and of course, she said “A GIANT LOL SURPRISE BALL!!” I had to hunt high and low to find one (they are all...

Piermont Retreat

Located on a pretty coastal stretch just south of Swansea in the Freycinet National Park, Piermont Retreat stands out in a place where it is difficult to notice anything apart from the sparkling sapphire sea that kisses the shoreline along this famous stretch of East Coast Tasmania. It was purely by chance that we found this place at all. A random Google led us here, and while a small sign leading up a gravel road had us wondering if we...

A Visit To Gambaro Hotel – Brisbane

Hotels that offer a little luxe escape always poll high on our list and when we had the opportunity to visit Gambaro Hotel in Brisbane for an indulgent mummy and me weekend away recently, we jumped right in. At first glance, Gambaro Hotel is understated and perhaps more famous for its street-facing bar, but once you enter, the hotel unveils a decadence in décor, service and dining that would rival most five-star hotels anywhere. Rooms feel cocoon-like, swaddled with luxury...
