Thriving on Thursdays - Linky Party # 113


Good morning and welcome to a 'late' Thriving on Thursday. I'm normally more organised and have the post prepared the night before but it's school holiday vacation time over here and even though we haven't been doing much, I'm exhausted by the evening. Understandably the children just want to talk (and talk and talk and talk) and eat (and eat and eat and eat). They are demanding my attention every second of the day. I don't think they were this demanding as babies! But anyway, that's life as a Mum. My apologies for the delay in getting the post up. Here are my top 3 food and non food related posts from last week.


Chocolate Mousse Cake on Hazelnut Crust - Gluten Free


Ginger Beef over Coconut Sweet Potatoes (#paleo #dairyfree #glutenfree ) |


Everyday Baby Quilt Tutorial

Thanks everyone for linking up. I will get around to that Easter round up as well. So many fantastic ideas that should be featured in their own separate post. If you were featured this week, feel free to grab a 'featured' button from above. Now, onto this week's party.

Review: Pringo (World's First Portable WiFi Printer)

How many photos do you have on you mobile phone? Heaps I bet? Wouldn't you love to be able to print them whenever you felt like? For friends, family, school projects, whatever? Well, behold, let me introduce you to the Pringo, the world's first portable WiFi printer. A fabulous little portable device that just pops into your handbag and allows you to print any photo from your mobile phone or tablet.

The Pringo is slightly bigger than your regular sized mobile phone and comes in the gorgeous pink colour above or a pearl white. It's pretty easy to put together and operate. The free app is available for download for both Apple and Android devices. There is a range of personalised options with the Pringo software with beautiful borders, stamps and effects for personalised pocket-sized prints.

The Pringo adds a unique protective layer to each print to ensure they remain UV, fingerprint and water
proof.  It’s also perfect for scrapbookers and families wanting to capture special moments.

As a special offer, I'm offering my readers the opportunity to get your hands on one of these little beauties with a 15% discount code. The Pringo retails for $198. Just use the discount code Pr11 through the Pringo web site. This offer is only valid until 30 April 2014.  This is going to be one of those must have devices along with your mobile phone. You'll soon wonder how you survived without it!

Disclaimer:  I was gifted a Pringo Portable WiFi Printer for review purposes.

Thriving on Thursdays - Linky Party # 112


Welcome to another Thursday and time to thrive all my lovely followers and guests. A place to link up your projects from the week (or earlier) whether they refer to recipes, crafts and general information. Anything to all help us save a couple of dollars along the way and be a little thrifty. Tomorrow is the last day of school for term 1. I can't believe its gone so quickly. I really have been flying by the seat of my pants this term. Its just whizzed by. I'm hoping to re-group and be more ready for term 2. You'd think I was the one going to school. I may as well enrol the amount of time I spend up there. Anyway, from last week's party, here are my top 3 food and non food posts.

Thriving on Thursdays - Linky Party # 111


Welcome to another Thursday and time to thrive and hopefully find some lovely recipe and craft inspiration. It's been another busy week in the land of Domesblissity. After this week, we've only got one more to go before the children are on 2 weeks holiday. I'm really looking forward to the break and a time to recharge. It's been a very busy term. We've been blessed with rain, finally, these last couple days and I'm hoping for a bit cooler weather. Hope things are all okay with you in your part of the world. Don't forget to link up your Easter projects, new or old, so I can feature them in a round up in the lead up to Easter. Anyway, here are my top 3 food and non food related posts from last week.

Coochiemudlo Island

Summer officially finished here in Australia on February 28 but you wouldn't think so throughout the month of March so far. It's been very warm still and just beautiful weather. I'm making an effort to have at least one good outing with the kids on the weekends I have them so we all packed up and went to Coochiemudlo Island for the morning.

Coochiemudlo Island is a quick 7 minute passenger ferry ride from Victoria Point on the main land. Victoria Point is approximately 40km from the Brisbane CBD and if you don't have a car, you could catch a bus from anywhere within the Redlands. It is only 5 square kilometres in size so easy to walk around and the beaches are safe for kids, remembering to take note of the tide times.

With water crystal clear like this on your door step, why would you go anywhere else? Just near the ferry jetty the lifesavers have set up flags and the beach is monitored. There is bed and breakfast style accommodation on the island as well as the local residents who live there. You can get snack type foods at a small takeaway shop or everyone usually decides to bring their own. There are barbecue facilities and toilets located close to the ferry.

My son and I enjoyed a game of catch as well as kicking the football around.

My girlfriend put in a cheeky bottle of chilled sparkling light red into the picnic basket and it was just beautiful sitting there with that view.

There truly isn't a better place so close to home for around $10 return ferry ride for the 3 of us. How blessed are we? Check here for fares and ferry times.

If you're visiting Brisbane, make sure to include a trip to paradise in our backyard.

Thriving on Thursdays - Linky Party # 110


Hello my lovely Thrivers and welcome to another Thursday and time to thrive. I think summer forgot that it finishes on February 28 because it's been a stinker here this last week. Hot days and nights and no relief. It can't be too much longer I hope. In saying that, I do prefer the warmer weather and even though our winter's aren't very cold I'd much rather being warm than being cold. Only a couple weeks left until end of Term 1 for the kiddies. I'll be glad when it's over to tell you the truth. It's been like a rollercoaster and I haven't been able to get on or off. I've been flying by the seat of my pants trying to remember everything that needs doing for the school. The kids have been great though and taking more responsibility for what needs to be done. Anyway, hope you've all had a great week. Here are my top 3 food and non food related posts from last week's party.

Thriving on Thursdays - Linky Party # 109


Welcome to Thursday my lovely Thrivers! Hope you've been having a wonderful week. I received great news yesterday. My blog has been nominated as a Kidspot Voices of 2014. What a great honour! It's like Australia's premier best bloggers competition. I feel like a bit of an imposter being in such esteemed company because I haven't been blogging as much lately. I can't begin to thank those who nominated me. It's such a privilege to just be nominated. I'm not sure it will go much further than that but what a wonderful thing to be nominated for. Anyway, here's cheers and my top 3 food and non food posts from last week.
