Swipe Strike

I’LL NEVER SWIPE RIGHT ON MY MR RIGHT. It’s a hard life when you’re a catch. You hear stories about SO many fish in the sea but when you’re searching for a barramundi and only reeling in bassa, your chance at love and the ‘fairytail’ mate you always dreamed of pretty much seems like oceans…

Planting the seed…

CHANGE YOUR MINDSET. EXPRESS GRATITUDE. My favourite night of the week, Saturday, spent with my favourites. 8 month old puppy Frankie and only purchased today, house plant Terrence.
