Sponsored by Ford Australia for Kidspot Voices 2014 I loved my job, that I could proudly call myself a full time blogger. My blog was a hobby that blossomed into a business, an exciting adventurous dream of a business that suited the very core of my personality. Without it I would not be the person I am today. A person capable of honest and raw self reflection with the ability to remain strong and impenetrable and yet at the same time completely vulnerable. To speak to hundreds of thousands ...

On the weekend I was honoured to be inducted into the Kidspot Voices Hall of Fame for blogging. I've been a part of the competition since it's inception many years ago, I even came Top 5 in 2012. A special thanks to the unwavering support, love and nominations from new and loyal readers of my blog. It's so exciting to see fresh faces entering the arena even if I did feel a bit like a dinosaur, because not only was I celebrating the induction but on Monday my blog turned 8 years old. I spent ...

Kidspot Ford Territory Top 50: A Woman’s Perspective

DIML_TOP50_KIDSPOT_DANIMEZZA-1

Having the Ford Territory parked in my driveway has been ever so lovely but really in the end, it's just a car... albeit a luxurious car that gets me comfortably from point A to point B. What really sets it apart from the one I have now is in the details. I can easily find happiness in the littlest things and thankfully the Territory has plenty of them, so many in fact that I have to list them all! Diesel - When Steve and I bought our car we ummed and ahhed about getting a diesel engine ... [ Discover More ]

As one of the (extremely lucky, like omg how did that even happen?!?!) Top 5 chosen from the Kidspot Ford Territory Top 50 Bloggers competition I'm required to write four blog posts on specific topics over the next few weeks. Who knows, if I do a good job I might get to drive this bad boy around for a whole year and maybe even land myself in New York in August for BlogHer alongside the likes of Woogsworld, Edenland and Styling You... as they say, it would be #totesamaze!!! A beautiful brand ... [ Discover More ]

Help me win $5000 and a New Ford Territory for a year!

Back in March Steve and I took Aidan on a caravaning trip. We planned a brilliant route, packed everything we needed and headed off to visit friends and family. I was even presumptuous enough to assume that our trip would be so magical with a toddler that I arranged a five day guest post slot over at Childhood101 so I could share all my jewels of first-hand knowledge. Although we thought we'd taken everything into account, one thing we didn't plan on was us all catching the flu. ...
