fatmumslim My friend Sarah {@castledesign} runs a charity from here in Australia that supports a safe house for girls in Kenya called Rafiki Mwema.

I know not everyone is in a position to donate money, but I'm sharing an idea on my blog on how we can help bring joy to the girls with a little creativity. {Click the link in my profile for more details}.

fatmumslim Do me a favour? I thought it would be fun to get to know each other better {kinda like those awkward first dates... except slightly more fun}. So tell me about you. Just one thing if you like.

I'll start: I'm one of four kids and look nothing like my siblings, my weakness is vegemite on toast and I can't hula hoop or do cartwheels, no matter how hard I try.
Over to you.

Turning 50 this year and today I chopped off my curls and have gone short, next big step is to go go with the natural highlights!!! Have loved forming new friendships via IG especially @sunshinegetsmehigh @luckybel @invisiblemonstered . Hoping to visit them one day and teach them to say "Gidday mate"! 8h

  •   sunshinegetsmehigh @cityfun I was just telling my Facebook friends the other day how neat it was that I've made a friend all the way across the world via Instagram! I love see your updates and hearing about your life down under btw, I truly believe age is just a number! I would never have guessed you'd be turning 50, and I feel nowhere near 32 (33 in June). You're only as old as you feel... So I guess with saying that, somedays I'm only 12 an others I'm 80 3h

fatmumslim 19. Money {the contents of my wallet} #fmsphotoaday 5d
  •   ms_dee5 @melkkelly Here in Canada we're getting plastic bills too. So far the 100 50 and 20 have been changed. And I agree with @snnewtie cuz Canada has pretty money too. ♡ツ 4d
  •   knit1kids4 My son is coming to Australia in June for a 6 week mission trip. Someone gave him a $100 Australian bill as a donation. It is so cool! 4d
  •   kayleegwyn Australian money is SO COOL! US dollars are just so dang boring. 4d
  •   netals I love our Aussie money! US is quite boring really! But I love seeing other countries currency! 4d
  •   margaeli Wow!! Pink/salmon (whatever color that us)!!! Yup; universal consensus: US $$$ is BORING!!! 4d
  •   margaeli Us=is 4d
  •   lajones2803 In NZ we have smaller and lighter coins - Aus needs to change its coins too, saves lugging around a purse of heavy change! 4d
  •   christareneeminer You all do know US money is currently multicolored and also has large pictures, right? "Greenbacks" are a thing of the past. And the $100 denomination that was just released into circulation is truly anything but boring; especially in person. I still value your opinions! =) I just want to make sure you're aware. 4d

fatmumslim Day 16 | Fab Four | My Vice

I've reposted this due to the stolen image in the previous post. Please keep in mind that these Fab Four are just 4 images (among thousands) that stand out to me and I feel are either
funny, cute, and a good or clever representation of the days prompt. It would be impossible for me to google and research each photo to check the authenticity of each image. I apologise if some ppl don't agree with the images I choose however, this is not a competition. Photo A Day is a fun and creative outlet for many, so let's keep it fun!

  •   jonewman44 Congrats @beanjar who doesn't love coke?! And @nicoledamario @fatmumslim you gals do a great job! Don't let this take the shine off your amazingness! 5d
  •   shannonlee26cp Congrats all!! 5d
  •   beeroberts78 I think the whole point wasn't about competition it was about a stolen picture. The owner had admitted it and by keeping it in the grid it's like you are condoning the practice. If that had been my stolen pic in there I would have been very upset if it wasn't removed. So thank you for replacing it with authentic picture. 5d
  •   beeroberts78 Congrats! @beanjar 5d
  •   mimirhonda We all appreciate the time you take to host and inspire this wonderful creative task for us @fatmumslim. Thanks. 5d
  •   jacwhiting @fatmumslim and @nicoledamario I bet when you created this wonderful daily inspiration for people you never expected how far and wide it would spread. I love looking at the daily pics from around the world it brings us all a little closer together. I have people who now follow me and people I now follow, these new daily connections break down barriers and make the world a better place. Please keep the inspiration going. 5d
  •   beach_spray Congratulations all very fab 5d
  •   jenny2pennies @fatmumslim I was a little surprised to read this and naively perhaps never even thought that people would do this because as you say this is a fun task that has now become part of my every day! I have met so many amazing people through this project of yours and just wanted to say a big thank you 2d

fatmumslim 17. Something I learned {That if you hold yourself a pity party, the pity keeps flowing. Sometimes, despite crappy things happening, you've got to put on your big girl panties and get on with it. Or get outside, exercise and proactively choose to feel better. It's not a bad life, just a few not-so-great happenings. In other words, we get a say in how we feel and the way we react to stuff} #fmsphotoaday 1w
