About Me

Screen Shot 2014-03-12 at 8.41.34 AMHey Skinny Cap readers. Thanks for visiting my blog where I truly hope you find inspiration, if not at least some laughs, in my life adventures.

I’m the subeditor and features writer/journalist at Examiner Newspapers in Western Australia where I cover a range of topics including not-for-profit work, health and medicine, environment and conservation, people’s achievements, book and film reviews, special events, commemorations and travel. I get the opportunity to meet an incredible variety of people thanks to the stories I cover and work with some highly talented journalists that I truly am proud to call friends.

In September 2013 I became a first time mum to a beautiful little girl with the chubbiest cheeks I had ever seen and came to learn what real unconditional love is all about so I find that because motherhood is what I’m focusing on at the moment, that is what I am mostly writing about at this stage in my life.

There are so many facets in my life that make up who I am – writer, mother, wife, daughter, friend, animal lover, runner, dieter, reader, volunteer, Factor V Leiden advocate, social media junkie, coffee drinker, the list goes on. I don’t believe that just one word defines a person because each individual has a multitude of passions, interests, loves and hobbies.

Every day is a learning curve and I hope to share some of those ‘wow’ moments on my blog, which I’ll warn you now, is not about anything in particular. Whatever is affecting me in life at that moment, I’ll share with my readers.Β 

So welcome to Skinny Cap with Two Sugars, let’s have a coffee together!
