Stir fried beef and green bean curry

In the mood for something spicy and Thai flavoured and wanting to make use of the many tins of red curry paste I bought without being quite sure why, I decided to use the curry paste as the flavour base for a kick ass stir fry, minus coconut milk or cream to sooth the fire. ...


If there's one celeb who has had a huge style transformation and is now a red carpet standout it's Nicole Kidman. I don't know why but for a long time I wasn't a fan of hers. I didn't mind some of her movies but just couldn't seem to like her. Maybe it was the Tom ...

Cake, coleslaw, and polka dots.

Guys I'm quietly freaking out that it's almost September. Child number four celebrated his first Holy Communion on the weekend. One last chance for me to do the massive at home Communion party where I spend two days preparing, cleaning, shopping, and cooking for all the people I've invited and have no idea where I'm ...

OOTD: classic vibes

There are times for pineapple print dresses and then there are times for the classic's that you return to time and again: stripes, denim, and anything black. Lately I've been going back to the classics and rediscovering the things that stand the test of time. Things like: denim: jackets, skirts, & jeans shoes: converse sneakers ...

Talking brows. Again.

Another year rolls on by and I'm still obsessed with my brows. Or lack of. Last years cosmetic tattooing wasn't quite the success I had hoped for. Full microbladed brows done in January were touched up in March due to the expected initial loss of pigment {at no charge}, but then needed another touch up ...

Slow cooked sticky ribs

Don't let the picture full of brown fool you, they might be hard to photograph in a pretty way but these ribs will be a hit. They came about because my three older kids all love going out to a popular restaurant that is known for their fall off the bone sticky ribs. Taking my ...

Let’s all go to Oz

The world seems like a crazy place lately. Barcelona. Charlottesville. Trump and nazi's marching in the streets and innocent people being killed for no reason. I avoid talking about politics, not just here on the blog but even in real life conversations. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but it can be tricky when ...

Why #sorrynotsorry is the way to go.

I love a good hashtag. #sorrynotsorry Or as I like to think of it: "I would be sorry because it's probably expected of me but instead I say fuck that." Because it seems that, as women, we seem to be sorry for every bloody thing that we should enjoy instead. Why don't men have guilty ...

Beauty faves: Maybelline Color Drama Lip Pencils

I've been a huge fan of these chubby crayon lip pencils for a couple of years. The Maybelline Color Drama lip pencils are heavy on pigment and staying power, the colours are vivid and lush, and the price is seriously cheap and budget friendly. Back when I was running my cafe they were the kind ...

๏ปฟIconic looks: the slip dress

Not a new trend, the slip dress was everywhere last summer, and is showing no signs of going away. What I love is their versatility: tough biker style with boots and leather, prettied up with heels and metallic accessories, backyard BBQ casual with slides and sunnies, long, short, or midi length. But for a former ...
