Fun fact about me: I’m a ballet teacher. I mostly work with elite girls between 14 and 18, who have left school to study ballet full-time in the hopes of having a career in an international company. I also teach younger children after school and on the weekend… so it adds up to quite a few hours in the studio.
I should really be padding out my winter wardrobe at this time of year. In a few weeks I’ll be in Sydney (which is significantly colder than where I live), and I’ll be needing scarves, boots and knitwear.
You all know how passionate I am about colours, and when you see something like the outfit I’m wearing in today’s post, is it any wonder why? How could you possibly wear an outfit that looks like it was woven from sunshine and marigolds, and not be happy?
There a few things that I will just keep going back to: floral prints, delicate jewellery, bows, pink, and gingham.
Cards on the table… I usually have no time for alternate or imitation foods. It’s the vegan stuff that gets me. I mean, if you want a piece of cake, eat a piece of cake. I struggle with the recipes that use a whole heaps of nuts and matcha this, coconut that and cacao nips galore. Often I feel like they are so calorie dense that they end up being worse for you than if you’d just satisfied your cravings with a small piece of cake in the first place.
The last time I put a recipe post up on the blog, it went over a treat, so I thought I might make it a more regular thing. Be prepared though- if you are watching this space waiting for dinner ideas or lunch inspiration, you’re going to be disappointed. I have a massive sweet tooth, so when I get busy in the kitchen it’s usually for desserts.
Hi everyone! This is just a little mid-week post to share with you all the photo diary from my recent birthday weekend. I headed down to my favourite place, Byron Bay, for some quality time with a few girlfriends.
