FAQ answered

How did you get the Oprah gig?

I received a PM from Mini Gaga a facebook 'liker' on my business page on facebook. Without this I would have never known about this amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity. Thank you Mini Gaga. You are a gem!

What was Oprah like?

Engaging, warm and down to earth. She is just like you see her on TV - very genuine. Truly a pleasure to meet.

You seem pretty relaxed about it all, I'm more excited than you!

Well yes, I was/have been very relaxed about it all. I was all consumed with it before I actually received the nod from the producers, but then it was head down bum up. The timing of the Baby Shower coincided with my childrens kindy and school break ups. I don't really want to ever have to catch a 5am flight to Melbourne during day light saving ever again. Far too many in one week!

Whilst I will be eternally grateful for this opportunity, I'm more grateful for my little family and that has and will always be my first love.

A few behind the scenes photos to get you excited about tonight!


A little late night hot glueing never hurt anyone. Actually, I was burnt in the process. However, I putting that down to lack of sleep :)
