They say a picture can say a thousand words and since I love sharing my life with you guys here’s some shots from our trip down the Gold Coast, the Christmas Party, the Step Workshop etc.


Pre-Step Workshop


Post Step & CX! Yes, hair sticking to your forehead is the new look. Oh incase you don’t have me on twitter, the new Body Step is brutal stuff, but with awesome music. And the new CX? The best I’ve done!!


Delicious (and super late) lunch from Sumo Salad. A mixture of lentils, morrocan vegetables & chickpeas, and quinoa. Saaaa good!


Home for the night 🙂


The outfit in action.


Before the Christmas Party!


Dinner- turkey, steamed vegies and salad.


Amazing and funniest magician! He was incredible, so charismatic.


The new clutch with the table decorations. Ice room themed.


Someone was hungry (not me don’t worry) and decided Maccas was the place to go. According to health and safety you can’t order a pounder…maybe that should have been a sign NOT to get it. What does he do? Get two quarter pounders and put them together. I’ll give him credit in that he didn’t eat much more than half of it.


Breakfast- two soft poached eggs, 1/2 tomato and a piece of wholemeal toast.

Good food must be the theme of current, because I have had yet another delicious meal. First it was the delicious Wagaya dinner feast, then those satisfying pancakes and the awesome salad from Grill’d. Well I’ve done it again with my current favourite salad!

This salad is so good that I had it for dinner last night and lunch today! Into my bowl went a Woolworths Macro vegetable pattie, lettuce, cucumber, carrots, mushrooms, 1/2 a wholemeal english muffin toasted (impromptu croutons) and a dash of sweet chilli sauce.

The masterchef vibe also continued when I, yes me!, whipped up an eggs benedict for the boyfriend’s dinner last night!

Yup, I’m even impressing myself. The sauce was really easy, thanks to my googling skills. I found an abundance of different recipes but the Sunday night dread came over me when I saw the complicated steps it took- so I decided to be lazy and find a microwave version. I ended up having to change up the quantities since the sauce was only going to be for one. We also agreed that next time we’d use less lemon- so I’ll take that into account for the following recipe.

Easy Hollandaise Sauce

Serves 1-2


  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp of water
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp of lemon juice
  • 75g of butter, melted
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Melt the butter in a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile in another bowl place egg yolk, water and lemon juice. Whisk well.
  3. Place in a microwave at 50% power for 15 seconds. Remove and whisk briskly.
  4. Do this for another 3 times.
  5. After slowly drizzle butter into the egg mixture whilst you continue to whisk briskly.

DONE! Easy or what? Unfortunately you’ll have to take my partner’s word for the outcome. I don’t like or eat hollandaise sauce so I’d have no idea whether this one was up to scratch or not. But he LOVES the stuff, and was very enthusiastic with his feedback. Apart from, as I previously mentioned, cutting down on the lemon slightly. But really something that is almost entirely butter based? How could it not taste good haha!

Apart from those mere moments of cooking genius on my behalf- my little secret baking project went awesome too, plus I’ve thought of more great ideas!- I’ve also squeezed in a bike and Body Pump class. Plus I’ve taken my baby (my car) into get serviced. She has done me proud because she only requires a new windscreen wiper and some more fluid stuff (yup, I know my cars). Oh how I love not having to pay lots of money haha! Oh and I’ve got a Body Step fill tonight also. Every time I do a class I get a rush of excitement in my stomach for this weekend’s workshop. I seriously love getting new releases! I wonder what they’ve got in stock for Body Step 70.

  • What are you looking forward to this weekend? I’m lucky since I’ve got a night away at the Gold Coast, a Body Step workshop and a Christmas party!
  • Do you prefer to take the quick options when cooking or the longer traditional methods?
