  • Plastic Tub vs Play Pouch

    This post seems a no-brainer to me… but I write it for those of you who seek a sorted and organised home. Just so you know – my home is not perfectly organised! However, I have toyed with the idea of becoming a professional organiser. In this era of consumerism, we need to earn skills to deal with all the stuff that comes into our lives. I’m inspired particularly by Lissane Oliver and Peter Walsh. These guys are absolutely consummate at keeping it real when assessing how we stay on top of the chaos around us rather than letting it take over our lives. My mum was always a winner at this – she was a natural organiser. I admire the natural ability some people have at choosing quality, curating the items that take their attention and fill their space and making those things work for them. For now, what I can offer is the Play Pouch vs the plastic tub. Try it in your home. See how the items you store in a Play Pouch are vested with the attention they deserve. Test the way that the Play Pouch may allow you to have those things to be used rather than being out of reach or mind. And consider whether using a Play Pouch rather than a plastic tub contributes to your lifestyle and quality of life. xx

  • Looking on the bright side

    I remember when I was a teenager, first hearing the phrase “random acts of kindness.” It propelled me through so many moments with family, friends and strangers. I had a label for my sometimes actions and it felt so good! Lately I’ve been feeling the “first world problem” vibe. Oh wow, how this label helps to put things in perspective. It’s crazy how many of my ‘problems’ are not related to basic needs. While I do a little bit to help those less fortunate than me, I know there is so much more to give. What do you do to give to your local or our global community? When do you remember that we are living in the lucky country? How do you teach your kids about the ways that we are blessed?

  • ADELE COMES TO ADELAIDE!

    Adele in Adelaide - Last night we were so excited to attend the Adele concert here in Adelaide, I think along with half the entire state! What an amazingly talented artist, who is so down to earth inside and out and has a powerhouse voice that resonates with so many of us! What was even more thrilling was when we were able to hand one of our very own award winning Play Pouches to Adele as we were standing within an arms reach! She said, “Oh I have one of these, I love it, I will take that, thanks!” and then handed to her team to keep for her! We didn’t think we could possibly love her anymore. Imagine Adele using the Play Pouch with her son, Angelo! #ADELE #ADELAIDE #PLAYPOUCH #POUCHAUSTRALIA #ADELAIDEOVAL

  • Avoiding excess screen time.

    So, my kids love screens. And I’ve noticed that everywhere I go there are people heads down, eyes peeled on a screen. There’s plenty of research about the effects of excess screen use and we all know it's better to limit it - regular human interaction obviously has a lot to teach us about ourselves, others and getting along. Of course, I don’t always commit enough time to being present with my kids. The reality is that it is not always viable to be 100% WITH them… you know - so much to do, so much to maintain, so much to achieve etc! My kids, like most (I think) when screens are off they spend an awful lot of time bickering. Essentially I figure it is because they are bored. While it’s not always the answer, I’ve noticed that a good activity helps to keep the fighting at bay. So when screens are off… enter the Play Pouch. And the versatile Mini Pouch of course. Duplo, done? Cars, enough? Musical instruments (only if I am feeling robust of course), done? Then clearly it must be bath time… and the best bit? I can get from the bathroom to the kitchen without injury! Happy days x
