As much as society would love us to believe we’re not enough and that we must always be striving and productive, it’s simply not true!
And yet it’s so hard to stop, right?! We’re addicted to busyness. I’m starting to face this truth about myself now 🙈 but also realising this is an incredible opportunity to grow 🌺
What happens when our time isn’t filled? Boredom? Frustration? Facing our shadow? 😟 But, what else is possible? Creativity? Mindfulness? Self-exploration? Yes. Today, I choose the latter... we always have a choice 🎨 🧘♀️ 📔
Hooray for school holidays! You may not all be cheering at this. For me personally, I'm looking forward to getting some work done without the constant interruptions for help or direction and having to keep an extra eye out that what's on their laptop screens is actually what they're supposed to be doing!
I know the holidays look VERY different than what they normally would but I'm still looking forward to a little less pressure to juggle everything to keep everyone on track.
We can play board games without worrying that homework and assessments are up to date. Our current fave is Hogwarts Battle. If your family are Harry Potter fans and you haven't discovered this one yet, you really should check it out.
Other faves include Bears vs. Babies and Exploding Kittens!
I'm also anticipating a few virtual bake-offs and lots of reading and movie watching. Any great movie recommendations, please share?! I'm looking forward to watching Jumanji 2 with the kids as it was released on iTunes earlier this week.
I'm planning to get the kids cooking plenty of dinners too. 😜
What are your plans for the kids these holidays? Let's all share our favourite movies, board games, or other activities to inspire each other.

Who are you even speaking to?
When you write captions, when you film a video...?
Identifying your niche can be really challenging however, once you've nailed it, everything becomes easier.
You become crystal clear on who your customer is
You know their pain points
You know what they are looking for and how you can help them
You know how they talk, where they shop, the brands they love
It makes coming up with content to serve / help / inspire / entertain them 1000 times easier
You competition will actually be reduced - you are no longer 'all things to all people', you know who you serve
You will gain greater trust and credibility as you are seen as an expert within your niche
You will become more memorable and are more likely to stand out for being specialised
My niche: Women aged between 25-50, they have previously held high achieving corporate jobs, they are educated and are looking to turn a passion to a business, they are early-stage entrepreneurs who are feeling slightly overwhelmed and facing fear about becoming visible, also very likely a perfectionist and they don't even know it.
I'd love to know if you know your niche? DM me or leave it below in the comments for everyone to enjoy! ❤️

One of Manly's oldest buildings, The Hotel Steyne, is undergoing major repairs and restoration works at the moment, which will include the reinstatement of six Juliet balconies. The original hotel, built in 1854, was destroyed by a mysterious fire. The current hotel, completed in 1936, is a registered heritage building.
What are your favourite memories of a night at the Steyne?

Featured in an award-winning Australian Interiors blog…⠀
To say I am just a bit excited, is a total understatement, I am ecstatic & so humbled. ⠀
Head on over to https://getinmyhome.com/sydney-stylist-angela-reynolds-of-harmonia-at-home/ & read Emily Osmond’s latest blog, 5 Minutes with Sydney Stylist Angela Reynolds of Harmonia At Home. You will find out A LOT about me & why @emma.blomfield @threebirdsrenovations@kyalandkara@brandcollectivestyling@the_sourceress are among my favourite creatives.⠀
Emily is the founder of the award-winning Australian interiors blog, getinmyhome.com, where she features contemporary & accessible Australian spaces & products, along with the people behind them. Emily started getinmyhome.com in 2012, while completing her Master of Communications, & she has since taken her love for interiors further by completing various studies & short courses. Also working as a presenter & host, Emily runs an online social media training business. ⠀
I became a member of Emily’s social media training business @emilyosmond earlier this year, to improve my understanding of social media, & how I could best utilise it for business. Prior to Harmonia At Home, I held zero social media accounts personally. ⠀
Best – decision – this – year – so – far! ⠀
To think now I was reluctant, for no reason other than I was worried about investing in my business. Repeating that out loud now makes me laugh, you can’t grow a business without being open to continuous learning. So reluctant to spend the few dollars on myself, I asked my family to gift this to me for my B’day. What can I say, I’ve always been practical when it comes to gifting, have asked for more needs than wants over the years, & this sure was a NEED as I fumbled through the world of Social Media on my own! Now, not only do I have access to so many learnings, but a support group that is second to none. The members Emily attracts is a testament to her own beautiful self (no, I am not getting paid to say any of this). Big shout out to all my #TMMCteam members & a big thank you to @emilyosmond x⠀
Have you ever been reluctant to do something, but it ended up being the best-decision-ever?

Today I felt bad because I've been working a lot and not interacting with the girls (their wonderful aunt is staying and home schooling them). So I thought on my lunch break we'd have some fun marbling paper with food colouring oil and water.
I mean a stressed out mum, a bowl of multi coloured oil water, two girls fighting over paper and a half an hour time limit .... what could go wrong? And for some reason I wore my favourite (and only decent) pale grey jumper.... Still it turned out alright (just make sure you have lots of paper towels handy). Please share and less high adrenaline ideas...
