Lunch for Two

Instead of a sandwich make it a platter. Try making the hommus yourself, it’s really easy.

All in blender:

1 can rinsed chickpeas
1 lemon juiced
1 clove peeled garlic
2 heaped tablespoons hulled tahini
Really good slug olive oil
Small slug water
Pinch salt

Yum, I served this with corn cakes, prosciutto, herbed salad and grilled capsicum from a jar. Can tasty get any healthier?



Fashion Fun

Don’t let your choice be boring, find a really great jacket, skirt or pant and use it to inspire the colours in the rest of your outfit. This jacket has a great mix of tones, if in doubt add pieces that are solid colours to start with and when you feel adventurous think about mixing patterns

Fashion Fun

Get the most out of your Autumn/Winter must have vest. These looks are easy to achieve. Just add the vest to an all black or all white knit top and jeans, add some brown with bag and shoes, a couple of accessories and the look is done. Dress it down with flats and up with heels, to take you from day, to night. A little tip, when choosing a vest if you are fuller in the hips and thighs go for a longer vest to skim over this area.

Boys don’t have to be blue

Posted on

When designing a room think about doing the unexpected. In this room instead of choosing blue for a little boy I have used a neutral colour, grey for the furniture, this means that the main pieces will fit future use as the child matures. Colour has been introduced in the furnishings, which can be easily changed as the child developes. I have chosen citrus shades of oranges and yellow to add fun and depth to the colour palette. Colours that are similar tones give a gentle sophisticated look.
