A citrus-y body scrub named after my favorite summer drink?  Yes please.

Hilarious!  I loved Jess’s insight on the reality of renovating (with photos!)
Our kitchen is a barbecue in what will be our lounge room. Where our bed is at the moment will soon be our kitchen. And my ‘office’ is wherever I can find a clean place to plonk, preferably next to a highly-sought-after power-point (old houses have so few power outlets! How did they all charge their smart phones?!!)

We all have moments of social media frustration.  What makes YOU say @%$&?

Yup.  6 reasons why writing is like sex.
6. It’s not about the (ahem) finale.
The end goal is not the be-all-and-end-all. Sometimes you won’t even reach it, or it can seem faraway and out of your grasp. So you bloody-well better be enjoying the process or all that energy will be for naught. If you’re just going for that moment of glory, you’ve probably got your writing/relationship priorities a little mixed up. It’s all in the journey.

You can’t really control who links to you, who retweets you, who likes your funny cat photos on Facebook.   You can make it significantly more likely that people will link to you and like your stuff, but you can’t really make anyone do anything.
