This Modern Day Mum


Hi, I’m Daneyl.

A little about me: I live on the Sunshine Coast with my Hubby, our two children, our two dogs, and a cat. 

I’m first and foremost a Mum, relishing in the opportunity to stay at home with my little ones. But while they’re on sanity days (otherwise known as school and kindy) I work a fantastic job as a Thermomix Junior Group Leader.

There is almost a pile of clothes on the floor at the foot of my bed, chocolate in my fridge and ABC3 playing on the TV. While I’ll always offer my kids vegetables and healthier foods, they only ever want cereal for dinner. And on the days where meltdowns have been rife and sleep has been elusive, it’s Rice Bubbles for everyone!

I chose my blog title because of my Alopecia, an autoimmune disease where I loose my hair. Sometimes I just have a few spots on my scalp, other times (like right now) I’m balder than an eel. Either way, its a sucky disease but it’s a part of my life.

I love to write about food, gratefulness, parenting, and life in general.  I also have a dedicated food blog called Mix Taste Eat that you can check out. 

I’m open to working with sponsored posts and companies. If you’re interested in working with me, you can email me at for further information. Or you can find me on frequently on Facebook or Instagram.

Happy Reading!
