Valentine’s Day is fast approaching- as if you could miss it from all the red and pink paraphernalia cropping up in stores. Many couples celebrate their love with the typical dinner and red roses, but for some people this just isn’t a viable or attractive option.
Valentine’s Day is almost upon us (how did that happen when we only just had Christmas?!). I think that Valentine’s Day is a celebration and acknowledgment of love in all its forms: love for your special someone, your parents, your siblings, your friends and of course, yourself!
Is there really anything better than fresh, warm scones with jam and cream? Not to my mind, but a decent scone recipe is hard to find, and a good scone recipe is like the Holy Grail. I have tried so many scone recipes over the years, starting with the ones I made in year 9…

I have always been a big fan of pink, and I’m loving this season’s prettiest hue more than ever. In 2017 we had millennial pink, but it looks like 2018 has removed all the apricot tones and left us with an even more feminine colour: petal pink.
The heat is continuing to beat down on us in Australia, which for me if the perfect reason to break out all my favourite sorts of clothes and accessories.
I promised you all one last blog post from our recent trip to the South Island of New Zealand, and here it is. When I last posted, we were travelling down the east coast to make our way back to Christchurch.
