Resolution shmesolution…

January seems to be the time we're supposed to re-invent ourselves, get fit, lose weight, and quit every vice or bad habit we have. I'm not sure why we're not expected to do that kind of stuff at any other time of the year, but last January I decided that the whole "new year new ...

Another year {almost} over…

In yet another blink of an eye we find ourselves in that weird stretch of time in between Christmas and New Year, where the days kind of blur together and there's no routine but there is instead lots of food, reality TV, and downtime. I dare say I'm not the only person who kind of ...

Pantry essentials :: Ras el Hanout

Trust me when I say that this Middle Eastern spice mix is going to change your meals. I picked up a small tub earlier this year and liberally seasoned a free range chicken before cooking it on the BBQ {see recipe here} and the results were nothing short of spectacular. Since then I've used it ...

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 ...

Style Icon:: WINONA RYDER

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 ...
