Chicken & sweetcorn soup

I know that Winter is almost over but in Sydney August can be the most brutal month, with biting winds and that last ditch cold that sees me in dire need of a warming bowl of something hearty and delicious. And what's better in the winter than a steaming bowl of soup? {Vegan wannabe Ana ...

Yeah, nah, maybe: making up for lost {shopping} time.

Switching seasons overnight means you get home and there's all this new stuff in the shops and you get all excited trying to think of what's coming up. I had a bit of a bimbo moment when I first walked through my local mall, thinking, wow that daggy grandma-ish clothes shop actually has some nice ...

Old enough not to give a fuck.

First off: I do not think I'm old. What I am, apart from being forty-two years old, is tired. Tired of all the shit. I started reading an amazing book on the plane trip home last week, called The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck by Mark Manson. {Click on title for Goodreads link.} It ...

OOTD: little leopard shift dress

This dress was purchased online quite a few months ago, I remember wearing it with summer sandals and bare legs, thinking that I couldn't wait to Winter-fy it with tights and boots, and I wasn't wrong. It's a firm favourite, is often paired with a leather jacket, and you could easily swap the boots for ...

From swimsuits to scarves in a day.

All good things must come to an end, and Summer vacations wouldn't be so exciting if it was a Summer vacation every day {or so I tell myself}. But waking one morning facing a melting heatwave to boarding a plane and arriving home a day later to freezing cold does tend to be a bit ...

So hot right now :: ROSE GOLD

As far as trends go I do try to avoid them, but from the moment I saw the words rose gold I was hooked. From hair to accessories to homewares to jewellery it's pretty much everywhere and the inner girly-girl in me cannot resist it's pretty metallic hue. Here's a round up of some of ...


Ajvar is, for lack of a simple description, a red pepper and eggplant based relish type of sauce slash condiment, which is very popular in the Balkan region of Europe. Think Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, think lots of meat sizzling on the BBQ. Of course like all good things ajvar is pretty versatile, and to be ...

Style Icon :: GWEN STEFANI

Let's all say hello to Gwen. Once upon a time she was best known for being the front-woman of ska pop band No Doubt, who eventually took some time out to pop out a few kiddies and be all domestic, while also managing to squeeze out some solo work. Somewhere along the way, from amidst ...

Long macchiato: the quest begins.

What does a lifelong tea drinker do when she discovers, while on holidays on the opposite side of the world, that the most perfect coffee she's ever had is a long macchiato, the one and only coffee that she, a former cafe owner and not-half-bad barista, never even knew existed? We're about to find out. ...

OOTD: caftan love

There are those things you spy in a clothes store that you just know, the minute you lay eyes on it, that is completely and utterly perfect. You slip it on and it's exactly what you thought it would be and more. And is there anything easier to wear while still making you feel pretty ...
