What I Wore: Friday Afternoon Coffee with Gal Pals

  Oh Fridays… I love you. Well… they are my cleaning days – so I actually don’t love the DAY part of it, but… once the clock strikes 4, I really start to like you. A lot! I popped out for coffee with some gal pals for some birthday celebrating last Friday, it was such a treat! It was great to slip on the comfy loafers, pop on a cute t-shirt, add a cute jacket and add some red beads {Read More}

What I Wore: Cobalt & Mustard

    You all know I have a bit of a ‘Thing’ for mustard right? I wrote about ‘How to Wear Mustard (when you don’t have a Cluedo)‘ and I wore ‘Mustard & Denim‘ a few weeks ago… Well… here I am – wearing Mustard again… I just love it. I love that it is earthy and warm, but adds a bit of quirky fun to an outfit. A few weeks ago, when we were shopping at DFO-Jindalee for Mr {Read More}

The Panel: Winter Beauty Regimes

‘The Panel’ question for this week is: Do you change your make-up/beauty regime for Winter? What do you change and why?   This week’s question brought some interesting responses! I was thinking I would get responses about colour and use of blush, of course I should have expected people would be focussing on dry skin! Yes I do! I use products that offer more hydration, and add an oil – rosehip oil- to my night routine. Heavier moisturisers during the {Read More}

Fashion: The Panel – Who is your style icon?

I asked my ‘Panel’ about who their style icons were… Here are some of the responses I gathered… Thanks to all who responded!   Audrey Hepburn. Elizabeth Taylor. Diane Kruger. Kate Moss (hello skinnies and ballet flats!). Coco Chanel. I like to dress in a retro cute vintage glamour style with a modern twist.

Fashion: What I wore:: Thursday – Three Thrifted Things

  I have been op-shopping up a storm lately. I am just loving poking around and finding new dresses, shoes, scarves, bags and bric-a-brac. I do love going to our big shopping centre with its major department stores and looking at the new colours and styles and looks that are around, but… there is something about wearing something that no else is wearing that is appealing to me.

Food: New York Baked Cheesecake

So… what makes a Cheesecake a NEW YORK cheesecake rather than just an Italian cheesecake? I know this question has been keeping you awake at night… Well, it is basically the kind of cheese used. New York cheesecake uses cream cheese {and sour cream as another main ingredient} whereas Italian cheesecake uses Ricotta cheese. New York Cheesecake sticklers will say that a true New York Cheesecake MUST have cream cheese, sour cream and eggs. If it does not have these {Read More}
