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

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

Brace yourself people. Disclaimer: This isn’t a food post but I really wanted to share these photos with you. I apologise now for the onslaught of images but who doesn’t love a wedding huh? As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been busy editing the ‘Sebily’ wedding photos that my two extremely talented friends Jeremy Howell and Anne-Sophie (aka Sasufi) took for us. I was blown away with the amazing shots they got, they really nailed the brief! Again, I’d like to thank all our friends for helping out

Saturday was a beautiful day which was spent walking down Smith Street, browsing in a few of the beautiful furniture and homewares stores and finishing up having an early dinner at Shop Ramen. This place is one of my favourite places to eat, especially when you want a good, healthy and cheap feed. I have to admit, I don’t eat a lot of Japanese so I’m no connoisseur but Shop Ramen’s ramens are the best! I particularly love the vegetarian Ramen they make with cashew milk as they use the

I was just about to say, it feels like an age since I last posted but that’s because it has been! Three whole months since the Amsterdam Gingerbread House I made… golly! I’m so sorry it’s been so long but unfortunately, planning a wedding takes up a lot of time. It’s even more time consuming when you plan on making and crafting everything yourself (with the help of some good friends of course). Yes I had quite a few crafternoons with some very creative friends who helped me cut, sew,

Merry Christmas everyone! Festive season is well and truly here – and I’m loving every minute of it. I’m a Christmas freak if you haven’t figured that out already! I’ve even discovered a radio station on our digital radio called ELF radio, playing Christmas carols 24/7. Amazing! This weekend we went to a big Christmas BBQ, which was a great excuse to catch up with friends. I’ve been so busy lately, I feel like I’ve hardly seen anyone. Anyway, the lead up to Christmas is a great excuse to get

Christmas is just around the corner folks! Crazy – I know but it’s true. I’m super unorganised at the moment in practically every aspect of my life: with the blog, organising the wedding, work, so I haven’t even thought about Christmas baking. In fact, I’m trying to be super healthy this year (especially with the wedding around the corner) so my baking will be very limited this year – booo. In saying that, we’re going to a big Christmas BBQ this Saturday so I’m planning on baking to my hearts content
