Day 2156 - Cheer Chick Charlie Book Week Fans #CheerChickCharlie

Book Week brought with it some BRAND NEW fans!



I love all my Charlie fans.

There are those who have been there since day one. Those who have come from a cheerleading background.  Those who have joined cheer because of Charlie.  Those who have just discovered Charlie recently.

Day 2155 - It's time for tea

I'm interested to hear what's going on in your world.


I've been having lots of cuppa catch-ups lately.  I've made it a priority over the last two weeks to spend quality time with people I haven't seen for a while.  Not because I have to, but because I want to.

Usually my cuppas involve a meeting or a client session or the need for a result of some sort.  They're needs based.

Lately I have wanted to have tea and a chat. Friends, family, colleagues, ex-clients. Not because I've got something interesting to chat about, but because I'm interested.

Day 2154 - The power of gratitude

Gratitude leads to a healthy heart.
It makes sense that being grateful for what you have in life leads to a more loving and fulfilled heart space.

But did you know that gratitude is also linked to greater cardio vascular health?  It can create a better heart ... literally.

Day 2153 - Coerver Coaching Performance Academy

When kids aim for the stars.




I like to help people achieve their goals.  It's what I do.  As a parent we do what we can to  help our kids achieve their goals too.

Some kids have small goals. Some kids have big goals.  Some kids have massive dreams that are made up of a bunch of smaller dreams.

Derek and I do what we can for Tahlia with her modelling and Darby with his soccer.  We like that they have dreams.

Today Darby's soccer dream took another massive leap forward.  Today he was inducted into the Coerver Performance Academy.

Day 2152 - Debacle in Braddon

It was a pizza and cider afternoon ...


It was time to catch up with a bunch of lovely ladies I hadn't hung out with for a while, so we headed to Debacle Bar in Braddon.

I had a hankering for a cider and pizza and I wasn't disappointed.

Day 2151 - Getting ready for spring

Who's ready to break out some skin?



After being covered from toe to neck for the last three months I'm hesitant to see what's going on under all those clothes.

I imagine it's pretty white, scaly and hairy under there.  I'm also feeling particularly squidgy around the stomach zone and the tuck-shop arms may be re-emerging.

Perhaps it's time to pay some attention to the skin I'm in.

Day 2150 - M-Ceutic Resurfacer Cream-Serum Product Review

Thalgo Laboratories introduces their new cosmeceutical brand M-Ceutic




You'll remember me praising Thalgo previously for their super duper anti-aging foundation.

Well a couple of world-renowned dermatologists having been working with Thalgo Laboratories to create a new skincare range based on the principle of Mesotherapy.

What is Mesotherapy?  No idea.  But it sounds fancy.

Day 2149 - Wordless Wednesday

Yesterday in pictures


A quick day trip to Sydney that included a follow-up medical appointment for Miss Teen, lunch in Newtown, a drive to the northern beaches to drop off my books to the distributors (they'll hit book stores in time for Christmas) and a minor detour to the new Forever 21 shop at Macquarie Park on the way home!

Proving yet again that you can fit a hell of a lot into a day! 

Happy Wordless Wednesday. 

PS: For those following on from yesterday's post, all medical appointments went well with both our girls getting the thumbs up!

Day 2148 - An update

It's been a while since we've had an update ....



So what's going on in the life of Deep Fried Fruit?

Well, first things first I'm still here.  So that's a good thing I suppose.  I've been battling the dreaded head cold but that's a tiny challenge compared to many.

Poor Tahlia has had the flu. It hit her pretty hard so she had some time off.  Nothing too sinister though. As you can see by that video up there she's doing well overall. It's a behind the scenes video taken at a modelling shoot at the start of winter.

Day 2147 - Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

So I've talked about pomegranates, kale, bananas, blueberries and chia seeds.  I've also chatted about cucumbers, celery, aloe vera and coconut oil.

Today I thought I'd have a chat about something that is right in front of me.  The fruity staple that permanently resides in our kitchen and which is a daily fixture in the family lunch boxes.

The apple.
