Current Crushes

It's time again to share some of my current favourite things. Things that I am obsessing over and can't get enough of. So here you go...
  1. Food - Mexican - I am loving all things Mexican. Avocado in guacamole (You may remember last month's crush on Avocado and Feta), Tomato Salsa, Corn Chips and Tacos, Quesadilla, Tortillas. I am loving them all. For the best Mexican out, try these two in South Yarra - (I can recommend both)
    1. Fonda - 144 Chapel St, Windsor VIC 3181
    2. Touche Hombre Electrica - 15 Claremont Street, South Yarra VIC 3141 
  2. TV - America's Next Top Model - Yes I am sure there is more 'quality' TV out there but nothing that has appealed since The Block finished. So I have dived into ANTM thanks to Apple TV. Am loving it. Not sure why but I can happily spend an evening or day watching episode back to back. Currently up to Season 14.
  3. Sweet Stuff - Vanilla Slice - I am not sure where I have been for the last however many years but I have recently discovered Vanilla Slice and am loving this amazing sweet, gooey treat. Where have you been hiding?? Thanks to our resident Nigella at work, I am in treat heaven. Going to tackle making my own shortly. Currently looking for recipes.
  4. Girl Crush - Olivia Palermo - She has STYLE in capitals and bucket loads of it. From her relaxed everyday wear to her on the red carpet looks. She nails it every time. My secret wish is to be her, or just have her wardrobe. Amazing! Check out this post by Paloma from La Dolce Vita, as I am not the only one.
  5. Sunshine - I am so over winter and ready for some sun. Bring it on baby. )I think I have that seasonal disorder that most Melburnians get in winter.)

Thoughts and Feelings

Hi all,

It's such a great feeling to know that I have a place to to put my thoughts. Whether anyone reads them, or takes them on board, isn't really the point. It's about a safe place to download and share. The good, the bad, the exciting and the ugly.

While those close to me will know that the last 12 months have been tough and the last 6 more so, others will probably not have noticed a change in the business as usual version of me.  (aside from a lack of posting anything). Up until recently, I prided myself on that. On projecting that veneer to the world that everything is ok. But honestly inside I am sad. And it made me realise that we put on this veneer, this mask as if being the real version of ourselves would not be liked and accepted. That people would shun us and think less of us for showing our really feelings and our real lives.

In this day of social media and the desire to share the best bits of our lives with everyone (those we know and those we don't), have w…

Crushing on....

Do you ever get so obsessed with something that it's all you can think about? For an example a song, a dress, a culture or a food. I do. A lot. So I thought to help my obsession or to maybe even get me over my current obsessions I thought I would share them.

Food - Avocado and Feta Mash. Simple and oh so tasty. Just mash an avocado together with crumbled feta  Serve on toast, with tortilla chips, as a dish with poached eggs. Almost anywhere. Try adding extras like lemon juice, chopped tomatoes or fresh herbs. If you are in Melbourne head to Moulin Noir in Port Melbourne who do a mean version.Movie - So I am going to cheat here and go with a franchise of AMAZING movies. Fast & The Furious. Absolutely obsessed with these. and there is a new one out, Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,  fast cars and non stop action. Do I need to say more? Looking forward to seeing it this weekSong - Oh so hard to pick one but going with my movie theme it would have to be We Own It by 2…
