OOTD: lots of colour

There's something strange in the neighbourhood...so much colour and so many loud prints making their way into my wardrobe...from palm trees to so much green which I usually hate with a passion to pastels to paisleys... I'm going to chalk it up to the warmer weather and a cheerful state of mind... Top: Kmart Skirt: ...

Counting down to a #zerofucks Christmas

It only feels like a few weeks ago that we got back from Croatia, and I am finding it almost impossible to grasp that not only is it Christmas in less than two weeks time but the long awaited New York trip is also done and dusted. We arrived home in the midst of a ...


She's the 90's grunge pin-up who's made a small screen comeback recently, once easily recognised by her gamine pixie-ish cut but these days wearing her hair long and wavy and totally owning it. Style-wise she's gone from slip dresses and rolled up Levi's to killer red carpet gowns, but the leather jacket and street vibe ...

Mediterranean veggie & haloumi skewers

Still trying to be as vegetarian as I can, family BBQ's would initially seem the most challenging, what with the assumption that a BBQ means red meat. Instead BBQ's are a great way to get some delicious grilled veggies as well as salads and sides that are vegetarian and often vegan too. These skewers were ...

OOTD catch up: more polka dots than you can shake a stick at

Fourteen days since my last OOTD post I thought I'd do a quick round up of some of what's been happening on the "style" scene. Although I'm using the word style very loosely. Both dresses: TARGET The palm tree print is the same one as seen on the slouchy pants a couple of weeks ago, and ...

Black rice & quinoa salad with lentils and heirloom tomatoes

A salad that can either be enough of a meal on it's own or do duty as a side, is filled with stacks of nutritious goodness, is easy to prepare AND tastes delicious: this is one of those salads. Label it as a superfood if you must, but the truth is that it really is ...

Taco Tuesday

It's no secret that our family loves Mexican food. What began with a few packets of Old El Paso taco shells and nacho kits many many years ago has grown into a love affair with the more authentic kind of Mexican food, think hours of long slow cooking for pulled pork and adobo sauces that ...

Red-dy to rock

There are few things that can instantly lift my mood while making me feel fierce all at the same time, but a bold red lip does the trick every time. I've had my share of red lipsticks, ranging from cheap as chips supermarket brands to the iconic must-haves. Like everything else I definitely go through ...

NYC dreaming

So in exactly three weeks time my daughter and I will be sitting on a jet plane bound for the big apple, as part of her 18th birthday celebration. We're planning to do all the regular tourist stuff, and, both being OCD types, will no doubt have a well researched and planned itinerary for when ...

OOTD: palm trees on her pants

There are prints and then there are prints. My colourful pineapple dress was a huge move for me, but when I spied a pair of slouchy pants in some kind of palm tree print, in a slightly garish green hue {SO not a colour I like}, I can't even tell you what appealed to me ...
