Inspiring Women (and damn good hot chocolates)

I love meeting inspiring people, especially women who are juggling becoming mums while running businesses. Kristy Mckenzie has three year old twins and runs a hairdressing salon called Petite Chique that fills a great gap in the marketplace: somewhere for mums and kids to go to get their hair done, without the tantrums from either child or parent! And as a side note, they make the best hot chocolate I've ever tasted - people talk about finding a great coffee, let me tell you, finding a great hot chocolate is even harder!

My latest diary entry for Ausmumpreneurs talks about how Kristy inspires me with my own freelance writing business. And now I need a hot chocolate..


Who says haircuts for kids can't be fun?

Tackling the big issues: kids' haircuts. Yes, I know, it's life-changing discussion. Well it could be for anyone who has ever taken a screaming kid to have their haircut and come out with war wounds (parent and child).

I decided a list of who does scissors well was long overdue. So read all about it here:

Kid-friendly hairdressers: who says haircuts can’t be fun?

Chop! Chop! (Yep, comedy is my back up plan if this whole writing gig doesn't take off).


And just one big flip of the bird to my computer and this program that enjoys saving drafts somewhere secret. "Save & Publish" apparently doesn't always mean that. Sometimes it means "Save & Publish somewhere really mysterious so the author won't be able to find it and have her waste valuable time retyping stuff."
