Mothers day recomendations

  1.  Paper Flowers from HanamiPaperCo
  2. Atelier x Grace MAMA Crew
  3. Floral Reed Diffuser From Forscent
  4. Glasshouse Casablanca triple scented Candle
  5. Bella Freud Parfum Loving scented candle
  6. Versace Dylan blue Perfume
  7. Writers Loose Leaf tea from Literary TeaCo
  8. Help with folding the Laundry. Not to mention the extra brownie points you can get if you put it all away also!
  9. Time- Spend the day together or a few hours even. Hugs and some kisses don’t go astray either.
  10. Breakfast in bed! This May be the best thing that a mum could get for mothers day! Not having to get up and put everyone else needs first is the ‘dream’ mothers all have. To have alone time and not have to plan or think about others. So why not make an entire day of it?

10 Day Manifesting Magic Challenge

Since starting THE $UGAR TRIBE, I have been blown away by the passion, commitment and success of the tribe members with their financial goals. One area that we have really focused on is our money mindset and being open, understanding and respectful to the flow of money in our lives. When you can do this, a shift happens. Keep reading, I explain more.

With so much interest around this topic, we have been working through James Goi’s book, “How To Attract Money Using Mind Power”. Now before you think I am turning into a nut case, this book has practical steps from teaching visualisation, language skills and explaining the power of attitude and appreciation.

Half way during the book we decided to test out what we have learnt so far and create a $100 10 Day Challenge where we had to apply the lessons and see if we could create opportunities to save, earn or create $100 within the 10 Day period. We just needed to invest our time and energy in applying the principals that we had been discussing.

Over the course of 10 days it was incredible what we each experienced.

First of all my partner asked to borrow my car for the day, (something he rarely does as he has his own car) so when I got in the car the next day I had a full tank of petrol, saving just over $100. Then a day later, I was asked to help a friend out with a business opportunity, the only issue was that she couldn’t afford to pay me but offered me a gift worth $600. Next I had to grab a bottle of champagne for a friend, as I walked into the bottle shop I opened up my Vintage Cellars app and discovered that I had a $100 credit. Then I was asked to do an extra job, earning another $100.

But it wasn’t just me experiencing this. Another tribe member discovered that on the day we started this challenge, her bank had overcharged her $100, after contacting the bank, they immediately refunded the $100 but also gave another $100 credit as an apology. Then another tribe member managed to trade her loyalty vouchers for other loyalty vouchers worth 3 times the value of her original vouchers, allowing herself to buy $600 worth of earrings for approximately $180. Then another tribe member decided to pack food for a 4 day road trip, which was not their original plan. They ended up saving $50 per day. Then another member’s parents randomly offered her some money as an early Christmas present. Whilst these are reasonable events, they all happened at the same time to all tribe members going the challenge. We all applied what we were learning together, it was incredible.

And I have to say, the money manifestation that I experienced aren’t things that happen to me on a regular basis. It was quite mind blowing, yet I am so grateful of this awareness.

Scared As A Chicken

Just like people say to me, “I am no good at money”, I am no good in the kitchen. Now I know a lot of people say that who aren’t actually bad in the kitchen, but you know when you get complimented on your rice, you know something isn’t right. And that is me.

Now I am actually working on my culinary skills as I want to get better at cooking. Slowly building a few different meals, I do an okay salmon salad, lamb and Rocco loves my El Do Paso Burritos. And it pretty much stops there. But because I have figured out these dishes, I am literally too scared to explore in case I lose my confidence. It has taken me 38 years to get this far.

In the meantime, Rocco and Tom are truely bored with these three dishes.

So just like anyone who wanted to get better with managing money, would research and read for solutions, thanks to Tom, I went to cooking school for the day. I was nervous, I was embarrassed and I struggled at times to understand. I was placed in front of an expert, who carefully explained the individual steps required to make a French roast chicken, Apple Tart, Olive Tapenade and even creme anglaise.

By the end of the class, I felt more confident, more inspired to stretch outside of my cooking comfort zone and more educated. So just like with anything in life, when we hit a block, get stuck in a rut or are just simply scared, it is time to listen and learn to experts, who can help up go to the next level and see what we are capable of.

Will report back with my roast chicken results soon.
