With watermelon being a SUPER CHEAP 88c per kilo right now I’ve been buying them whole every few days or so (we go through a whole one every few days around here) giving Little E some seriously cute melon belly. Obviously with so much watermelon available, I’ve had to get a little creative to make sure we eat it all before it gets gross
2017 has already started to shape into a year of change for me. I was accepted into a design course which means D has gone part time to support me on that and in turn, has become a part-time stay at home dad to Little E. It’s scary and exciting. Obviously D won’t be bringing in as much money any more so our spending will be
Okay so are these salad posts getting out of hand yet? No? Yes? They’re all I’ve been eating as of late so sorry for the salad overload! At least they’re all different right? I’ve got a few more in the works, so hold tight, this salad wave is almost over (I think). Every time I think I can’t take another salad, I get hit with
I know, I know. Chokers are SOOOO last year! I’m always so late on the fashion bandwagon that it’s a total new thing for me. I’ve actually been wanting to do this DIY for a few months now, but haven’t been able to until now! But alas, better late than never as the saying goes. Sooooo….when I DIY’d my own bucket bag, I decided to use up some
I’ve been DIYing a lot lately and I’ve been enjoying it so much. There’s something about walking out of the house saying to yourself, ‘I made dis’that acts as some sort of confidence boost (or not, depending on how successful your DIY was of course). I subscribed to A Pair and a Spare months ago and let me tell you, Gevena’s DIY’s are just too good to handle.
Keeping up with the summer vibes, I’ve got another salad here for y’all. With an average temperature of 35 degrees lately (that’s about 94 Fahrenheit) no one wants to turn on an oven for Sunday night roast when you’re already roasting in a Sydney heatwave. Is it unbearable? Well….no, it’s no Brisbane (helloooo humidity!), but it’s still warm! So for the foreseeable summery future, I’m making salads left right and centre.
Mangos are finally back in season here in Australia and I can happily report I’ve been stuffing myself full of them. Sweet, juicy and refreshing. Yum. I love that mangoes can be enjoyed in so many different ways with dessert only being one of those ways. Enter my Mango and Pecan salad. The crunch of the pecans with the soft juicy flesh of the
It’s officially 2017! Is it just me, or did last year zoom past in a complete blur? So much happened both in my personal life and in the world in general. It was a big year for Little E too. She had so many major milestones. First foods, first time rolling over, crawling, first steps, and on the very last day of 2016, her first
Christmas is coming people! It’s coming. I can smell it. Like literally, I’ve been practicing Christmas cake recipes and it smells so good! This year I decided to do an advent calendar and instead of buying a cheap BORING one from the supermarket, I wanted to make it a little more special. So I went away a bought a bunch of gift boxes, wrapped them in
I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks and omygoodness the pressure was ON to deliver a good post after my little hiatus! October was a crazy busy month with visitors and parties every weekend (isn’t life hard??!). These were one year old birthday parties mind you, so don’t get too jealous of my rich social life just yet! With all this, I haven’t had the
