• Saving Money on Our Gas Bill

    This post was a paid partnership with Origin Energy. Thank you for supporting my blog’s sponsors. Woah, 2018. It’s been a very busy – and expensive – year for us.

  • A Little Post for My Dad

    This week’s blog post is for one of my biggest critics and one of Modaokon’s biggest personal fans (well, at least I like to think) – MY DAD.

    A little while ago we had a promo video shot in our home for Karndean Designflooring, the company we got our awesome vinyl floors from. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my post from the day; a little clip of the boys filming Little Nerd playing while Nala harassed them. (Sorry guys). She just REALLY liked them and thankfully they were dog people so not put
