DriveIn in Style for Cars 3

'Cars 3' will reignite all cylinders of the race-car kid in all of us.  With twists and turns of plot 'Cars 3' takes pole position in keeping pace with life and taking the ultimate chequered flag.

Thankful for the rollercoaster of Motherhood… a ride I thankfully only have to watch on

Being a mum has got to be the hardest yet most rewarding part of life’s journey. I wouldn’t know but I love some people who would know quite well and are living this journey at different stages right now. I think of my own mum, still working hard, achieving amazing things, running around after 2 …

Book Review: ‘Swipe Right’ – Levi Lusko

'Swipe Right' by Levi Lusko is a powerhouse.  This book will change lives, I only wish I had read it 15 years earlier!

‘La La Land’ a true classic

You will have to forgive me if I sound like a giddy schoolgirl as I reminisce about the wonder that is ‘La La Land’, but this movie was stunning. As I mentioned yesterday while reviewing ‘Sing’, movie prices are high here in Australia, $21.50 a ticket is mad! So when a ‘Tight Tuesday’ comes around …
