The Every Day List

by Carly Jacobs
Image Us humans don’t always know what’s good for us. Truthfully we probably do know but our brains like to sabotage us sometimes. I know sometimes my brain is all ‘Let’s drink 5 pints of beer on a Tuesday afternoon. TASTY FACE!‘. Then I end up drunk at the pub,  yelling at a stranger about my theories of feminism on Game of Thrones at 11pm on a weeknight. I know what works for my bo Read the rest!

Why Don’t You… Grow Fresh Basil?

by Carly Jacobs
Image Why don’t you…? Go to the pool? Swim a few leisurely laps? Relax in the sauna afterwards? Make homemade versions of your favourite treats? Pop tarts? Donuts? Croissants? Drink ginger tea with your meals? Give your digestion a helping hand? Go to bed early? Make a cup of chamomile tea and snuggle down with a good book? Make chocolate covered strawberries for dessert and share them with someone you Read the rest!

What to Pack For Bali

by Carly Jacobs
It’s been a super busy week in Smaggle Land. Firstly, after 8 weeks of hard-core and flawless running training (seriously I didn’t even skip one session) I had to ditch my finale 10km run because I got struck down with the sleepy flu virus from hell on the same day my monthly friend came to visit. So the only activity I’ve been fit for this past week has been moaning on the couch in the foetal pos Read the rest!

6 Of The Best Ever Dress Up Party Ideas

by Carly Jacobs
I always get really annoyed when people moan and groan about dress up parties. My mates and I love dress up parties and we’re total nerds about them. I often have people asking me about planning parties (which is weird because I’m pretty sure I’ve never written about that) so I thought I’d share some of the best themed parties we’ve had, in case you’re ever stuck for a cool dres Read the rest!

5 of The Best Australian Food Blogs

by Carly Jacobs
I remember back in the day when I first started blogging, we all had blog rolls down the side bar of our websites that show cased the blogs that we read and loved. Somewhere in the midst of improved blog designs and WordPress switch overs the old blog roll disappeared. I miss the days of discovering awesome blogs this way so I thought I’d pop together a list of my favourite food blogs that I’m loving at Read the rest!

11 Adorable Made Up Words

by Carly Jacobs
A few years ago one of my mates was telling me a story and she said that she was ‘scrampling‘ for something and I was like ‘What the hell does scrampling mean?‘. Turns out it was one of those weird made up words that only means something to her family. It means to pat around on shelves in the dark looking for something. It really is the perfect word. It’s practically onomatopoeia. I re Read the rest!

9 Tips for Travelling In Singapore

by Carly Jacobs
I’ve been to Singapore about 20 times in my life but until about a month ago I’d never even left the airport. That’s not too surprising though because Changi Airport is like Disneyland for grown ups. You can get your feet eaten by fish, visit the pretty butterflies, shop until it hurts and there’s sushi EVERYWHERE. However on the recommendation of everyone who’s actually been there, I Read the rest!

In recent months I’ve stocked up on some basics that I’ve been hankering after for ages. They’re quality items, around $80 to $150 and I can’t recommend them highly enough. No buyer’s remorse to be seen here. Midas Flat Shoes I bought an awesome pair of flats last year from a store that shall remain nameless (It starts with ‘T’ and ends with ‘…enery’) and Read the rest!

How To Open Up A Can Of Whoop Ass On Your Work Place Bully

by Carly Jacobs
I had a reader email me yesterday with a problem. Let’s call her Jane. Jane works with a women who is subtly bullying her at work. It’s typical enough stuff. They both have positions on the same level but the bully always acts like Jane has to answer to her. She’s snarky, she’s sneaky and just generally unpleasant to be around. She also takes credit for Jane’s work and Jane’s wor Read the rest!
