To The Coolest Dad On Earth

Happy Fathers Day to my amazing Daddy-O! No words can describe how much you mean to me, I am so blessed to have such an amazing Dad. It would take me a lifetime to write about all the things you’ve done, for us and for everyone. Maybe one-day I will find the time to write […] Read more…

What Not To Do On Vacation

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about our mega holiday, and before the blog (possibly) gets deathly quiet for the semester *tumbleweed*, I thought it would be funny to share one of my holiday adventures. Now, there are lots of do’s and don’t’s for travel, I’m sure we all know the deal. But for me […] Read more…

Styled By…

Hi guys! I’ve missed you all! It’s been a busy few weeks and I have lots to update, blog and personal wise (in good time). Today I stole some time away to photograph and review a few things I’ve been loving lately, and as it always happens, the fun photos I simply adore come about […] Read more…

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

I recently read a fun beauty tag on Tine of Beautyholics Anonymous’ blog, and wanted to join. The title of the tag was fitting, seeing as I am supposed to be doing something far more important, but significantly less fun. Feel free to tag yourself, and leave a link in the comments! 😉 1. Name a […] Read more…

You are the most amazing woman in the world to me, thank you for all you have done and all you have taught me. You have given me the gift of love and strength. You inspire me to be kind and selfless, and I can only hope to be as inspiring in return. Here’s to […] Read more…

Something You Didn’t Know About Me #1

I don’t blog anywhere near as often as i’d like to. Part of the reason is because I’m a mum. I have six children, in fact. No, I didn’t accidentally choke on my strawberry milk and jerk around hitting the S-I-X keys in succession. It’s true. O-K to be fair, I have two step-daughters and children of my own.

Newest Project – An Artsy Blog

Hi everyone! I’m really excited at the moment, amidst the chaos of another full semester at Uni, I have chosen an art class to help keep the stressful workflow under wraps. Truth be told it’s likely to make things harder, but if it’s something you love then it can’t possibly be work, right? Part of our final grade […] Read more…

Blogs I love

Do bloggers read blogs? Absolutely! There are so many inspirational and fabulous bloggers out there, it’s often a sad thought that I may never discover some great gems because of the sheer size of the blogosphere. Here’s some of the bloggers that I love and read regularly. I tend to gravitate towards bloggers who not […] Read more…

My New Years Resolutions

Happy New Year everyone! Has 2012 been good to you? I hope you have had an amazing year, and that 2013 brings you love, happiness and everything you hope and wish for. For as long as I could remember, my new years’ resolution was to not have a resolution. Silly I know. But I firmly […] Read more…

In Love With My Camera

You may remember back in July we had family visit all the way from Florida. It was also around the same time I began shooting with my new camera (my secret love!). In between life and blogging, I have been busy self-teaching myself the ropes, and I’m excited to share two of my photos. Miss L […] Read more…

The Only Way Is Up, Baby

The greatest thing about being at the bottom, is there’s only one place to go from there… I wanted to give my deepest heart-felt thank you to all your kind messages and prayers of support. I’m so very touched by every single one of your comments. I really mean that. It’s been tough avoiding the […] Read more…

Behind every great man there’s a great woman. And behind every Beautiful Kayekie post there is Miss N, the greatest blogging assistant on the face of the earth. 😀 Little Miss N has always been such a great help, so I wanted to show off her work. She came up with the idea on her […] Read more…
