Who Am I? aka Addicted to 6 Question Quizzes

Who Am I

I have a confession to make. I LOVE those 6 question quizzes that are going around the inter webs at the moment. And, when I say LOVE, I mean CAPS LOCK:  LOVE! I realised recently that I have done an awful lot of them, and that if I put them all into one place, it paints a very unusual picture of myself. I also realised that all these quizzes represents a couple of hours of time (probably better spent with {Read More}

Stills: A Weekly Collection 1/52

It has been a busy week around here! I always get this idea in my head that Christmas is relaxed and carefree time of year with sleep ins and lazy afternoons. This is a delusion! This has been one of the busiest Christmas seasons to date! But, I love it – the people and the cooking and the gifts and the kids being around and the entertaining are all so much fun. Here is a small wrap up of this {Read More}

The Frocktober Review – 5 Noteworthy Dresses

Frocktober Review1

Last month I wore a dress every day. Yes, EVERY day. This included camping and work and walks to the park with the kids. It was fun, but… it was a challenge and it was all for Frocktober: raising money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. So… it was all worth it! I am naturally shy and not so fond of being in front of the camera, so to sign up to showcases moi in a dress everyday was {Read More}

Frocktober Day 18 – Seed, Sussan and Beads

Frocktober Day 18 - Featured

Friday… I love you. Especially after working Wednesday and Thursday. All I wanted to do today was pop on some jeans, an oversize T, a scarf and some sandals… but… I am over half-way through Frocktober, so… I hunted through my wardrobe for something totally comfortable and easy wearing. I found my favourite Seed Maxi Dress, coined the ‘Condom Dress’ by Mrs Woog, this dress skims and creates a good silhouette which then works well with a boxy shirt over {Read More}

Swedish Visiting Cake-1

This cake is delicious. You know, I wish I knew more words for delicious… This cake is lemony, moist, soft, buttery… delicious! The story behind this traditional Swedish cake, (which I found here) is that it can be made in the time it takes for visitors walk up your drive-way. I love that! I imagine living in a little cabin in Sweden, surrounded by pine trees, with a long winding drive-way leading to the road. I look out of my {Read More}

Bento Header

Have you heard of BENTO? Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container. I love this idea! I started looking into Bento and talked to a few people about the things they loved about it. Everything was cute and compact and I loved the idea of compartments. I very quickly found myself at the ‘Little Bento Shop’ where {Read More}

Good Bye London

Today is the last day of April. This means that it is time to pack my bags and say good-bye to my favourite city of the world. It is making me feel a little sad, but, the excitement of the next ‘stop’ is definitely starting to bubble away. I feel sad because I have realised that London has saved me, again. London saved me ten years ago when Mr Cool and I boarded a plane to go and live in {Read More}
