From Food to Drinks

What Island holiday is complete with a long cool cocktail? None that I want to go on anyway. While I had a great time sampling the food in Fiji I also had fun working my way through the extensive cocktail menu as well. Wanted to share a few of the tasty creations with you from my week in the sun.

Everyones' Beach Favourite - Pina Colada

Keeping me hydrated between cocktails - Fiji Water

My old school favourite - Midori & Lemonade

My new favourite - Absolut Mandarin Ruby

Midori Splice

Made cool again by Sex and The City - The Cosmopolitan

And there you go. The last of my Fiji holiday updates. From the picturesque views from my deck chair each day, sunsets galore, food and drinks and my reading list, you have a capsule of my most relaxing 6 days in the sun. I highly recommend a tranquil solo break to anyone suffering from the stress that comes with our current need to be plugged in and switched on all the time. And if you are looking fora wonderful place to stay where the staff a friendly, the weather perfect and the quality great, check out Sonaisali Island Resort in Fiji.

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…
