Hello hello! I’ve been busy squirrelling away, working in the background on a new website! It’s still the same clean, white, minimal look with a few little extra nice to haves plus the now essential ‘responsive’ design, which I don’t think even existed in wordpress templates back in 2011 when I started. It has been such a huge amount of work that I’m not even half way through, so please bare with me if images are still looking a little strange. When I started the blog I really had no

The last couple of months at work has been crazy busy. My colleagues and I have been working on a major event for work, which was last week. What a relief it’s all over and all see all the fruits of our labour! It was great to see all the things we produced, such as billboards, airport banners, city banners, gifts for delegates (including bespoke Melbourne designed and made scarves), printed canvas bags along with the creation of a Melbourne style cafe (I’ve had to put my interior designer’s hat

It feels like Winter has beenwith us for ages, when it’s only just begun. Ever searching for the silver lining,  I’m trying to make the most of all the wonderful winter ingredients that are now in season. There’s beautiful coloured cabbages, rainbow carrots and ruby red raddishes that brighten up any salad. I always try to eat foods that are naturally bright in colour…they just feel like they’re healing the body from the inside out. I’m sure it’s exactly what your body needs and craves in the middle of winter,

Oh hi there guys. Here’s another recipe I’ve on recently. Actually it’s my sister in law, Nika’s mum’s recipe for Borscht soup. She’s Russian so you can’t get more legit than this recipe! It’s a super hearty recipe that really relies on a tasty, quality beef stock to build up the flavour. The recipe she shared with me is enough to feed an army so may have to keep this in mind when cooking it. We had it a couple of nights in a row for dinner and froze the

It has been an AGE since any activity has taken place on this blog. I managed to keep it up for 2 years straight, week in week out, but I’m afraid I have let it slip over the last year. To be honest, I’ve still been keeping very busy with food photography. But lately it’s been for a client, not for the blog and there’s not enough time in the day for both, so unfortunately it’s been the blog that’s suffered. so I hope to FINALLY share some of these

I guess this post will come to you all a little late in the day (I really need to get my act together) but HAPPY AUSTRALIA day to all my fellow Australians. It’s been a while since I posted but I thought Australia day would be a good time to get back into the swing of things. This year has been busy so far as we’ve just recently moved house. Yes, unfortunately we had to vacate the first house we moved into when we arrived in Melbourne. We loved our sweet little

Loose Leaf


I’m extremely fortunate to be friends with a lot of crazy-talented folk. A few posts back I mentioned my friend Wona; she’s an incredible florist with years of experience and awards under her belt. I was lucky enough for her to make the bouquets, lapel pins and arrange the flowers on the arbour for my wedding. The end result was ah-maaazing! Seriously, you throw a few ‘loose’ ideas at her and she’ll make it come to life! About 6 months ago – yes this is how long I’ve been meaning to

Bonjour! I can’t believe it’s been four months since I posted here. I’ve practically deserted the blog but it hasn’t been just for the hell of it. A few big things have been happening behind the scenes here. I look forward to sharing a bit more with you in the next few weeks but here are the top three things that have taken up a lot of time/effort/mental capacity: 1. A few months back I had to reapply for my job as I was a contractor and the job was

Last week we had the opening of Deja View Cinema, and oh my, it was awesome! Fantastic turnout, such a great vibe. The beloved ‘John Candybar’ was a hit! We opened with a bang, featuring Terminator 2 on Thursday night and Gremlins 2 on the Friday (which I had never actually seen – Seb does all the programming). Both movies were amazing to watch with a big audience, super fun. Check out the program and pop down sometime! More info at deja-view.com.au. Righto, so back to the post. Quite a

Oh baby it’s cold outside! And this soup is perfect to warm you up as the temperature drops. Lately I’ve been loving really simple soups and one of my favourite classic recipes is the Potato and Leek. I happened to have some baby courgettes from a trip to the farmers market. They were just beautiful and were the last of the season! I had to include them in this soup as they were just screaming to be used. Normal Potato and Leek soups often use cream but I quite often
