Today is #worldalzeimersday .. I lost my Nan a few years ago after a decade of this hideous disease.. this September @dementia.auckland has launched its #StillMe campaign recognising that a person with dementia is still the person we know and love underneath, even if they (&us) are experiencing new challenges.
I’ve said it before but @outwardboundnz is an amazing experience for anyone of any age & stage.. thanks @findexofficial for letting me and the incredible @_tianaedwards_ re live and share our experiences in the beautiful @hawkesbaynz last night #resilience #rightofpassage #keynote #broadcaster #beautifulnz #mentalhealth #thereismoreinus #justdoit #overcomingfear
The thing about #3kids is that they want to do everything their big siblings are doing NOW. So here is #master2 #freddieflynn being a Big kid #lovetennis #tennislove #mumofthree #growingupfast
A little treat for @neilfinnofficial and #fleetwoodmac fans - he stole the show #proudkiwi as did @mickfleetwoodofficial with an absolutely incredible Drum solo!
We used to spend hours together on air, but 10 years on and five kids later the squeezes are less frequent but just as lovely - nice to share a studio with you today @sachamcneil we haven’t changed a bit 🤣😘 @newshubnz
Changed up our date night last night and went and saw some fabulous theatre - @theblinddateproject is absolutely awesome - so clever - loved it @silotheatre Natalie Medlock, Tom Clark and Yvette Parsons were amazing ... #highlyrecommend 🙌👊🤗 60mins of fully improvised comedy - so good!
Anyone else remember the Prime Local News days circa 1998-2002? It’s been a while ... back in the #primenews chair tonight for the first time in a decade or two 🤣🤣 definitely older, definitely not wiser! #seeyouat530 #broadcaster #tvnews #newsreader #sayingyesagain
Steals my heart every time. Living here in the early ‘90’s sure gave me a life long love affair for the @cookislands I feel very lucky I get to bring my own family and #besties back @katebrittenboom @beckskelleher been a little bit wet 😉 but not like nz! 🤣🙌☀️❤️ @pacificrarotonga #islandlife

Hormones unbalanced? We have one of these @evehealthco test kits to give away on the show today - we’re talking hormones and how they are the basis for everything on @magictalkradio today with founder Beatrice Thorne - she’ll take your questions /texts and calls too - tune in 10-1 (she’s on 1230-1) @bepurebenwarren #evehealth #happyhormones #broadcaster #healthandwellbeing
Loved popping in to @theamshownz this morning - lots of lovely comments about this dress (Helen Cherry ❤️ btw).. which had an exceptionally low plunge front I was conscious of all morning ... turns out according to our lovely stylist ‘no one had worn it this way before’ ... dressing at 345am I’d put it on BACKWARDS 🤣🤣#fashionsfail #broadcaster
So I worked with a production company yesterday who urged its 15+ crew to all BYO their own water bottles - a small but important gesture and change in the pursuit to ditch single use plastic! I love the ocean and our beaches and our wildlife and environment - but come on NZ we’ve got to get better at this - which is why I’ve teamed up with @sustainablecoastlines to help them spread the message that single use plastic is just #notok. Join me and #Choosetorefuse single-use plastic bottled water. Take the #HydrateLike challenge: 👍 Step 1. Take a pic of how you hydrate without single-use plastic. ✌️ Step 2. Tag #HydrateLike + Your Name/Job/Passion etc. 🤟 Step 3. Challenge your friends and whanau; tag them in your post. . #plasticfreejuly #beatplasticpollution #choosetorefuse #loveyourcoast #solvedifferent
Hands full but heart also full ❤️. school holidays always presents a bit more of a juggle with the work/life madness 😱🤣 but equally it’s a chance to have a bit more space, to go a bit slower and to have some more day to day fun away from routine. Really, they are all that truly matter. Shout out to all the parents and caregivers out there as we come to an end of the school hols 👊🙌💫💃🏻🤗 #lovemysons #mumofthree #broadcaster
Totally abusing his cameraman privileges @personaman77 (sorry @jacindaardern) but you’re absolutely right 🤣👍 #waittilNeveis9 😱 she loved it Thankyou x #inspiringgirls #luckytilly #rolemodels
Fun crew #mybigkids #iceskating #familyfun #schoolholidays
School holidays are for ... being a kid again! #iceskating @laketaupo #notinqueenstown
From this weeks #neverknowwhatimdoingnext #workfiles, I’m writing a children’s book as a memento for one of my most fave places - @cookislands I absolutely love this place - having lived there as a kid I’d encourage anyone to go to explore and if you stay at @pacificrarotonga or any of their group, tell them I sent you for a wee discount when booking!! #authortobe #lifestyle #broadcaster #lovewhatido #neverknowwhatisnext 🙌🌺🤗💃🏻🐚🌴☀️🍸🚣♀️🏝🏖
Excited to let you know I’m heading back to my old/new radio show, Weekend Life from this weekend. Good chats with great people - I missed it 🤣 tune in 10-1 on Saturdays on @magictalkradio #broadcaster #lovewhatido #radio #lifestyle #dryjulynz
If you need any encouragement to do #dryjuly then this is what I’ve learnt after doing my own dry june 💡I’m sleeping better, Exercising more, have more energy, I’m a better parent, and working smarter, am less anxious and feeling much lighter. I’ll be continuing for #dryjuly just because it feels good and it’s nice to have a special drink like a @seedlipdrinks mocktail once in a while too. If you’re thinking of doing it then did you know you could donate the money you’re saving on booze to @lookgoodfeelbetter for all the awesome work they do. #winwin #lookgoodfeelbetter @cookandnelson
They’ve let me back in the building. @newshubnz late news tonight 🤣first time in nine years. Don’t muck it up 🤣 #latenews #newsreader #ripnightline
On Friday, I hosted my 6th #JourneytoExcellence live panel discussion for @m2woman where we talk all things #diversity & #inclusion. We’ve had 31 panellists across the series (incredible successful people who’ve shared candid stories) and this one was sold out - over 500 people turned up. One of our panellists this time talked about how she believes the only way to grow and be successful is by putting yourself out of your comfort zone.. I had to have a wee chuckle as it dawned on me in my work this is something I do nearly every week - I never know what job is next coming up and I often throw myself into fear over it, not being good enough, failing, yadi yada 🤨 it’s a tedious process especially given it typically goes ok 😉 But this comment made me realise it’s actually a driving ambition to do a freakin great job and to put myself out there to learn and grow! Fundamentally I love meeting and chatting and sharing peoples stories. Inside here I am a bucket of nerves. Yes I sometimes fail, but now I will look more at these things as fantastic opportunities to learn and grow. #justsaying #whataboutyou? #impostersyndrome #broadcaster #mc #authentic💯
