Once a month shopping

Once a month shopping Have you seen the movie ‘The Minimalists’? It’s pretty awesome. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you’ll likely be like me the first time you watch it and think ‘oh no I couldn’t do that!’ and then over the following weeks start looking around your house…

Meal planning

There are a  lot of things that I feel badly about doing when I was little now that I’m a Mum. A great deal of them are food-related. I actually feel very badly for what I must have put my poor mother through with my fussy eating. For every night that I whinged when you…

The capsule kitchen

Saturday morning, 5.15: got out of bed, wiped my bleary eyes, jumped in the shower and headed outside to start setting up. The sun has barely poked its head above the horizon and someone started walking up the driveway. I literally hadn’t even put a table up let alone started bringing our mountains of stuff…

Glass jars in the kitchen

Ooh these are just too cute. It was a breakfast buffet in Buenos Aires right at the beginning of a five-week trip around South America and Mum and I just had to have them. Every morning for the four days we were there, we squirrelled them away like we were 007 on a secret mission…

How not to make your pantry Pinterest-worthy

I think it took me about 9 months the second time around. If you have kids you may or may not know what I’m talking about but this is how long it took me to come out of my crazy newborn stage after having Cooper. I didn’t really realise I was in it at the…

Paleo corn chips

I’ve had some pretty rubbish fortunes over the years but could this one be any more perfect for January 1? I said towards the end of last year that 2017 would be amazing. Now it has to be. No looking back. Focussing on the present and all the good stuff. I did a lot (I…

Bye bye 2016

2016. What a year. Amazing highs and some rather low lows but if I had to sum it up – it was pretty awesome. I have grown so much. I have learned so much. I’m really proud of myself and of my friends and family for all they’ve achieved this year. I could probably write a…

Wholefood gingerbread biscuits

Have you ever turned up at an occasion to find someone wearing exactly the same outfit as you? Maybe you’re already feeling a little anxious as you enter the room. You scan the party for people you know and instead of spotting your pose, your eyes land on someone and for a split second you…

Snow man Christmas gift tags with glitter

Crafting may not be something I should take up full time, but what I lack in skill I make up for with enthusiasm and that counts for something right? When it comes to Christmas I’m a little bit OCD. Our Christmas tree is decorated with red, white and silver and I like to keep it…
