Sit down or cocktail? The age old question.

We've been doing more sit downs again recently - like this one for Simone + Chris at @the_line_melbourne.

They've both got their pros and cons, but our advice? It's what ELSE you choose to include in your set-up that makes or breaks your party. For example, if it's a sit down, make sure you have room for a lounge area so people have more than one option for where they can sit throughout the night.

If it's a cocktail, make sure you've got seating for 50-60% of your guests. You can make that up in a variety of ways, bar stools, dining chairs, lounges, benches, picnic set-ups. Don't leave your guests with sore feet! 📸: Tony Evans Photography

PS hanging to see more photos from this rad wedding, which had a working train set on the dessert table

A family fun game you can play - with Monsters! . .
The monsters aren't your brother and sister!  No - this Scary Bingo game has monsters galore. - they are the menacing mummy, a bowler-hat wearing yeti, a multi-eyed monster and so many many more! . .
Can you match the Monsters on your card and make a line?  BINGO! 
Each Monster has a name to make it a bit easier. . .
A fun way to play Bingo and a great addition to board game nights. . .

Sometimes I wonder what I'm doing here. I offer website design and copywriting and editing services. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I often have to remind myself that I have 4 years experience in website design, so by no means a novice. And 20 years experience as a copywriter, so some would call that an expert. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And yet, at times, I feel like I'm still trying to fake it until I make it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess we all have these moments where we wonder if what we do is really good enough that someone wants to pay us to do it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maybe I feel that way because I still can't believe I get paid to do something I actually love doing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The day is finally here - cue head explosion from social media information overload after today and tomorrow 🤓 #geekout @thedigitalpicnic #TDPtour18

Day one of our Gold Coast TDP tour [!].
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We've got folks flying in from interstate [from all over the state, actually], and overseas [Singapore], and we're never not chuffed with the level of effort people go to in order to undertake our training.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We've got a beautiful combination of business owners, and folks representing businesses / organisations coming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And we've even got x2 women coming who admitted they considered jetting off to a quilting conference [they don't quilt, nor do they have any plans to] if it meant being able to indulge in a kid-free weekend [ha!], ... but they opted for the TDP tour instead, because a little more relevant to them, and *still* with the kid-free drawcard.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Day one? We're ready for you, and we are positively buzzing with day one excitement!

Two [actually, ... it's 3] little flamingos are catching a seriously early night tonight ahead of tomorrow's Gold Coast TDP tour.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Day one.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's our favourite day, because there's so much nervous energy, and excited energy, and happy energy, and people swarming into our conference room *filled* with expectation, and now that we're x2 TDP tours down? We're kinda quietly confident that we'll be meeting all o' those expectations, ... and then some.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're READY for you, ... but first? SLEEP. x

ANYONE that know me, knows I’m a *massive* cat lover.
~
I call myself “the crazy cat lady that can’t have a cat”. Because it’s true!
~
Hubby is quite allergic & he willingly lived with me & my cat Clyde (aka Goo) for over 10yrs... that’s love man💗. ~
So, although I can’t have a cat. I’m quite happy to live vicariously though Kel @littlepartydress & her equally gorgeous Maggie.
~
So when Kel said, “I’d like to create a *Maggie* inspired design”... well quite frankly I lost my shit! #notevenkidding
~
So, this is she... Maggie, in earrings form by the amazingly talented Marayna aka @kenziecollective
~
How freakin’ amazing are they!
Like OH EMMMM GEEE!
😻😻😻😻😻😻
~
Plus... Kel has some amazing @littlepartydress pieces to match & they are BOTH being released this Monday night🙀.
~
So, even though I can’t *have* a cat, you can be bloody sure I’ll wear ‘em!!!

@katepugsley captured what is ahead for me and the kidlets this weekend perfectly in her super cute illustration.
.
Somewhat quirky, but off to the Winter Festival at @germaninternationalschoolsyd with my German bestie and her little ones to check out the annual lantern walk, mulled wine (unfortunately not for me as 🤰🏽), German sausage rolls, waffles and lots more.
.
Cold weather, lovely food and great company at their best!
.
And then I would call myself officially ready for spring. 😜
.
Anyone else up to anything cool worth sharing?

If you’re going to brush your hair everyday, then use a high quality hairbrush, like these from British brand @rockandruddle .
.
They remove tangles without painful pulling, and distribute hair oils so your hair looks healthy and glossy.
.
There are large and small brushes (the small ones are great for the swimming or gym bag), plus different sized combs.
.
With so many different designs available, the big decision will be which one to choose?

The excitement is real peeps, gosh I freakin’ love Friday! What a day, what a week! So many good things happening and you can’t wipe the smile off my face. Switching to Friday night sloth mode on the couch as we speak. ⠀
How was your week guys? Another week done and dusted, pat yourself on the back and celebrate the wins no matter how small. ⠀

Facebook announcement - have you seen that your business reviews have changed to "recommendations"?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yep - FB have decided that recommendations are more powerful than reviews so they've changed the system. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, what's the GO?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️ The 5 star rating system is gone - now, people simply recommend your page or not. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💖When people recommend you on another FB page, it will automatically show up on your business page. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
😥 It's meant to be easier to report unfair recommendations or spam - this was near impossible with the star system⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👍 It's easier for your customers to share their love for you through tags and photos. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, the jury's still out on how these changes will impact your ability to share your business love, but here's hoping our clients get on board and recommend us to death!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Friday night is cheese night!

Tonight we are featuring Chevre from @udderdelightscheese in the Adelaide Hills.
Chevre is a soft cheese made from goats milk. It has a fresh acidic flavour, with a dense creamy texture and clean finish on the palate.

So what have we teamed it with tonight?

As a sweet cheese board, try it with our new Munch Healthier Organic Crispbread in the oats and chia variety.
Then top with beautiful, in season, Victorian blueberries.
And drizzle with a little honey.
Trust us, you will love it!

WOW, I was completely blown away how much you all LOVE these ceramic travel cups.
You all nabbed them up *pretty* darn quickly and who could blame you. Well luckily for us we had a small top up order arrive this week ready for the weekend.
This time we were able to get some in the LARGE size as well for all the big coffee drinkers.
We LOVE these just as much as you.
Not only are they beautiful to drink out of and to look at but it's nice knowing we are doing something good, supporting the environment and our makers.

We're spending this weekend not just x2 day Gold Coast TDP tour conference'ing, but also? ... agonising over who we'll be bringing on as TDP's brand new Studio Assistant.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The initial agony? Receiving more than 200 applications and trying [our very best] to narrow that down in itself, but now? ... we have to decide between a whole days worth of *incredible* candidates, who all just interviewed so.dang.WELL.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can someone just seriously gift us with a money tree so that we can ring every candidate, and let them know they're *all* joining TDP HQ's? ha! #wishfulthinking
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We'll be deciding on the plane ride home from Gold Coast, ringing references on Monday, and then calling our [hopefully, ... if they say yes!] soon-to-be Studio Assistant on Tuesday. #progressBABY

MEATBALLS #annabelsrecipes
I like to sneak all sorts of things into my kids meals. These have red kidney beans, something I’ve never managed to get my kids into. They’ll add refried beans to burritos but whole pulses generally get a NO. Shame as they’re so good for you! Here the beans replace breadcrumbs

800gms beef mince
1 can red kidney beans drained and rinsed
1 egg
2 carrots
1 onion
3 garlic cloves
1Tbs Dijon mustard
1/2tsp dried basil, oregano or Italian herb mix
1/2tsp mild sweet paprika
1.25L #annabelssugo follow link or
1.25L good quality Passata or pasta sauce
Fresh basil leaves
100gms fresh mozzarella

Preheat oven to 220 and drizzle a large baking tray with olive oil

In a food processor purée beans with egg until smooth. Remove to a large bowl. Next put onion, carrots + garlic in and pulse until finely chopped

Add to beans with herbs and spices, salt and pepper. Add mince and mix well. Shape into 30 balls (ping pong size). Bake at 220 for 20 mins

Pour 1/2 of sugo into a new high sided baking dish. Scatter with fresh basil and transfer cooked meatballs. Top with rest of sugo and dot mozzarella all over the top. Bake at 180 for a further 20 minutes. Serve with pasta or rice

#meandmygirl_behindthescenes DORK ALERT! Last week I assisted my legend bud @hellourbansafari on a shoot for @makemeiconic at @sugarrepublic.au 💕
The real shots were just my hands holding this super fun wooden taco set, but I had to ask Tash (aka @makemeiconic) to snap this, 'cos I love me a good #dork moment. 'Cos if you can't laugh at yourself, you're just taking life WAY too seriously. Amiright?
I'll share some of Kate’s shots soon. 🌮🌶️🌮🌶️

‘Bumpy roads often lead to beautiful destinations.’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This mum has been over some very bumpy roads but now has three beautiful and thriving daughters! Grecian is mum to a 3 year old daughter and her 13 week [corrected age] twins. She hasn’t done it easy though, with her twins arriving very early at 25w6d! I can’t even imagine the challenges that she has faced, whilst also juggling a toddler, but her girls are getting big and strong and are absolutely kicking goals!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Grecian has also created a blog and Instagram account, which I think is amazing as it will no doubt give new mums in similar situations a lot of much needed hope.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I always admire people who have been through challenging situations, who can then go on to help others.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I met Grecian through her ordering a Rudie Nudie Playmat, and it’s another of the reasons why I love what I do, because I get to come across awesome mamas who are super lovely!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I felt that Grecian was totally worthy of this week’s #mumcrushfriday ❤️

Every business has a pain point - for me, it's content creation. I have sooo much information rattling around in my brain but getting it out of my brain and into usable pieces of content for my social media, blogs, procedures, checklists - my brain goes nope, not playing that game chief.
I would love to know the pain points in your business - is it updating your website? Is it keeping on top of your financials? Is it your emails (hello inbox with thousands of emails)? Hit me with it - I'd love to know!

Do you have the mid-year fundraising blues?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just cannot handle baking one more cake or trying to roster on volunteers? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, we might be a tad biased but we think that Real Kids, Real Play is the perfect fundraising alternative to chocolates and bake sales for kinders, early learning centres, playgroups and other fundraising groups. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are also volunteering kinder parents ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We know the pain of trying to raise funds to keep our beautiful facilities afloat and fitting it in around our chaotic working life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Which is why we have designed our program to be as stress-free as possible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No risk involved. Tick. Done-for-you email and marketing templates. Tick. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What’s your go-to beauty treatment/ritual that makes you feel spesh? Puts that spring in your step? Tell me in the comments 👇🏼👇🏼 I’d love to know more about you 😘

Me?⠀

You’ll rarely find me with make-up on. Think my toddler would be better at contouring than I am. I stopped colouring my hair over 2 years ago. Nope, not rocking the ombré ladies, that’s my natural colour and those light bits are the last of my white blonde days 🙈

Years ago, a beautician suggested I tint my eyebrows and eyelashes. I was like “puhleeeease woman, that’s the most ridic thing I’ve ever heard!” Now who’s laughing. Face game-changer 😲. I bloody love it.⠀

Yesterday, I cranked things up a notch with an eyelash lift. Did you see my stories? I’ll pop it in the highlights. Didn’t hurt a bit and I’m stoked with the results. I call it “I don’t look as tired anymore” look. 😆

I was kindly gifted the experience by Mama-boss of Brazilian Butterfly in Williamstown @jesswraight_. Incredibly grateful 🙏🏻 What a beautiful biz and team. ⠀

Jess loooooves the Hood Mama vibe and has a sweet deal for you. A free eyelash tint with your first lash lift treatment. Mention MOTHERHOOD MELBOURNE when you book. It’s $75 for the lash lift (unbelievable) and normally $85 with the tint. Call (03) 9397-0222.⠀
_______⠀

Ok Mama, what’s a beauty treatment you love? 👇🏼

I’d like to introduce you to the latest member of the #ESSBIZSQUAD his name is Percy👋🏻

We found Percy at the Finders Keepers Market, pretty cute isn’t he, this druid was created by Pete Cromer, @petecromer ~ a designer, illustrator and happy art creator, you need to check out his work, one word, incredible! ⠀

Working from home can at times can be isolating, not having others around to build relationships with, bounce ideas off or just take 5 to have a coffee with and talk about something other than work with can be lonely. ⠀
That my friends is how Super Fun Friday came to life, I created these days for us all to come together and have some great people around to help motivate and inspire, and it’s super fun way to wind up the week.⠀

Want to come and hang out on a super fun Friday, shoot me a DM, let’s do it. ⠀
Perhaps it’s a little far? Put the call out to others in your area, I bet you’ll find there are others who’ll jump at the chance to hang out with you. ⠀

Lets show Percy a ‘lil bit of love to welcome him to the crew.

So you have heard that teeth should be brushed twice a day for two minutes, but you will hopefully be happy to know that those recommendations are based on science 😉  Studies looking at how much plaque is removed when brushing for different times indicate that the longer you brush, the more plaque will be removed, but that this tapers off after around 2 minutes ⌚️ But, if you monitor how long people *actually* brush their teeth for most won’t make the 2 minutes 😕 which is where a timer can come in *very* handy 😄

There's something about the Peninsula that just gets you hooked. I [Erin] think it's the beaches on the southern Peninsula, but living in Rye *might* have made me biased. ⠀

Oh, and working with brilliant businesses on the Peninsula and in Geelong – because catching the ferry to meetings in Gtown? Is a pretty cool job perk.

This here, has to be one of my favourite pieces we have at the moment.
It's a bit hard to capture but it is beautiful in every way. For one thing it's purple, plus it has lots of gold flakes through it and the swirls.... it's just one of those pieces that i'm secretly glad we haven't sold yet.
The girls from @nanwoo get it right every. single. time.
LOVE that I get to be surrounded by such goodness every day!

As unbelievable as it is, it has been just under a year that I have treated this passion of mine as a business opportunity and simply gave it a go.
.
By nature, I am the hesitant type who overthinks everything, so this whole going-it-alone thing was planting doubts in my mind that were a challenge to overcome to begin with. The oh-so familiar imposter syndrome came knocking too and had to be sent packing again straight away.
.
So here I am, going strong with a list of clients and projects under my belt with hopefully a lot more to follow.
.
Super amazing collaborations with some very talented ladies at the peak of their game are on the horizon (soon to be unleashed)... you know who you are, ladies! 👊🏼
.
So to say that I am more than amazed with the level of support and generosity out there with fellow biz babes is an understatement.

📽️️Content marketing tip // BOOM! 💥 What does your language you use on social media say about your business?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This catch-cry is synonymous with Melbourne based Business Coach and self-titled Biz Cheerleader, @emilyspicerstuart. If you read her instagram captions, watch her stories - it’s Emily’s catch phrase. Her language on her socials is positive, upbeat - but ultimately honest and refreshing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what does your language you use on your socials/in your communications say about your business?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
