Day 1844 - Pantene Ultimate 10 BB Creme

Who's got hair that could do with a bit of treatment?

Seriously, who has the time nor the money to get a professional salon treatment these days?

Perhaps we don't need to. 

Pantene recently sent me the Ultimate 10 BB Creme to trial.  They suggested that it is the ultimate 10-in-1 multi-tasking treatment that not only moisturises but also detangles, de-frizzes and a whole lot more.  10-in-1? I'm in!

Day 1843 - Eat Cashews

Do you eat nuts?

I have to admit, I love cashews.  I will have them as a side for my lunch, I'll snack on them during the day and I'll even eat them with my berries and other cut up fruit for breakfast.  But are they any good for me?

Day 1842 - Melanoma

Have you had your skin checked lately?

As we head into summer we all need to take stock of our skin health.  Especially those of us who are Deep Fried (literally). I am a sun bunny. We are a family constantly in search of the sun, surf and sand so our skin health is even more important.  Derek and I book into our skin specialist at least once every two years.  He does it at the start of summer and I do it at the end.  We're pretty tuned into our body and the little spots, blemishes and bumps on our skin.  It turns out though, that skin cancer can show up in forms other than dark, blotchy, irregular-looking moles or freckles.  A persistent "pimple" may be deadly!

Day 1841 - Planning

When was the last time you planned?

What planning looks like in the world of Deep Fried Fruit
Failing to plan, is planning to fail.  So this week I have spent my time planning.  Planning my marketing, planning my distribution routes, planning my time lines, planning my sales strategy, planning my networks, planning my time.  Planning for action. Planning to make measureable progress in reasonable time.  Planning to be great!

What's your plan?

Day 1840 - Today is a new day

There are days when I struggle to get results. 

Image source
Who am I kidding? There are weeks months where I am disappointed with my lack of positive forward movement.

Well that's OK because today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I keep telling myself that when I dip and waiver in motivation, creativity and forward movement.  Whether it's business, writing, household management, exercise or even parenting, I get the opportunity to end each day and start a new one.

Our today's don't have to be based on our yesterdays.  They can be what create our tomorrows.

Today is a brand new day!  An opportunity to start fresh. 

Who's with me?

Day 1839 - Garlic breath

Can you fix garlic breath?

Ever woken up on the day of a big meeting, interview or client session thinking "shit" because you indulged in garlic the night before?  Don't fear! There are foods that can help with that.  Raw apple, lemon and mint top the list of foods that can help freshen your breath after a garlicky meal. Green tea, spinach and parsley also help.

Day 1837 - Saturday quote

Happy weekend! 

Image Source

Why do I over commit myself on the weekends?  Because I choose to I guess. My day starts in Sydney with daughter modelling assignment and will end in Canberra around 10.00pm. Tomorrow is a day of cheer with workshops being run all day until 5.00pm.  I am already feeling the exhaustion. Given there is no actual day between Saturday and Sunday I guess I'll just have to suck it up and focus on the fabulousness of both events instead!

Happy weekend everyone.

Day 1836 - Peri Peri

Meeting Ms Nandos 

Derek and the Nandos rep at the Ausmumpreneur awards
At the AusMumpreneaur events last weekend my husband was delighted to rub shoulders with the crew from Nandos (who were a major sponsor).  So much so that he wanted to have his picture taken with "Ms Nandos" and he very willingly took around 12 bottles of Peri Peri sauce.  While I was a little embarrassed by his enthusiasm and a lot concerned about the survival of so many glass bottles in our airline luggage,  I will admit to enjoying the benefits. Ms Nandos (which of course is not her name) admitted to feeling like a rockstar on the night.  I guess Derek's enthusiasm will do that to ya. Needless to say that Peri Peri has now been part of most of our meals since last weekend.

Day 1835 - Sometimes you've got to push yourself

Since when did the student become the teacher?

As you know I am on this health and fitness kick.  My daughter is on the same path.  She came to me yesterday and said "want to go for a bike ride?" to which I replied "sure!"
