Rise and shine! It’s a fresh year, time to regroup, forge new routines, relationships and rock some goals for the year ahead! And let’s not forget to save yourself some celebratory ‘alone’ time now the kids are back to school. Whether it’s a date day with your partner, hiking with a friend, snuggling up with the latest flick or getting that long overdo hair color – you enjoy – you survived school holidays!


The crew at haven is hanging onto summer and that holiday vibe for as long as we can so grab your copy of haven, read on and join the fun! We talk goals, checklists, routines and lunchboxes to arm you for your year ahead. Let’s face it – life can get hectic, so take some tips on morning routines, mindsets and even how to get the tangles out of the kid’s hair.


We were inspired over the holidays, catching up on our favourite reads so we have kicked off the year celebrating some tall stories from a talented pool of local writers of all ages! This is one story the kids may enjoy too.


For all you business savvy readers, make sure you save the date for our next haven business hub event – we talk social media and time management and would love to see you there to help grow your business.


Welcome back and make it a wonderful year! Read our February issue of haven online HERE!
