Life has been fantastic lately, and I have been inspired by the ‘Making me Happy‘ column on In Spaces Between to put a list out there of things that I am grateful for, just to show the universe that I appreciate all the amazing things and people in my life.
I know I talk quite a bit about my amazing friends and their latest projects, but I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such talented and inspiring people and really love sharing with my readers, especially when they are involved in something that you may also be interested in.
When I first met Jessy I was not only amazed by her impeccable sense of style, but also inspired by her creativity and passion for each and every thing that was discussed. All of that was on top of her being such a fun and like-able person that I felt like I clicked with instantly.
It made me so incredibly proud to hear that she was following her dreams and opening Molten Store, an ‘online destination for purveyors of delicate, otherworldly jewellery and indulgent curiosities’.
After much anticipation, Molten Store has launched and is as fabulous as expected, suiting Jessy’s aesthetic perfectly. Upon browsing there were so many items that caught my eye, with a number of them ending up on my ‘wish list’ including a necklace by House of Harlow, a pyrite ring by Rachel Pfeffer and this sweet little recipe journal.
Imagine my delight when I received an email about this competition where Molten Store are offering the chance to win one of the Pyrite Rings that I had already been lusting over, and not only that, they were giving my readers the opportunity to win one also.
Un Pour Moi, Un Pour Toi is french for ‘one for me, one for you’, so of course I am hoping that one of my readers wins this competition, meaning that I win also! Wouldn’t that be fantastic?! Winners all around!

My wonderful friend Lady Dash has recently started blogging about her cooking adventures, in particular, cooking her way through Donna Hay’s ‘Fresh, Fast, Simple’. She was also given the opportunity to test out a few of Donna’s new range of packet mixes so we decided to collaborate on a blog post.
Of course, Lady Dash is the perfect host, and I was lucky enough to be treated to a delicious lunch: Herb and Mozzarella Mushrooms with Garlic Toasts, which was the entree at her latest dinner party (that I unfortunately had to miss).
After a big week at uni and catching up on study, the boy and I thought we should treat ourselves to a lunch date. A ridiculously late breakfast meant that we actually weren’t at all hungry, so we decided to make a trip to Nobby beach to have a wander and try out a cafe that a friend recommended – Canvas.
For some bizarre reason, I got it into my head last week to make shortcrust pastry from scratch, even though I had to be at uni 30 minutes later. I remembered the cookbook that came with my Kenwood food processor had a recipe in it and it was actually even easier than I expected, despite the fact that we (at that stage) did not own a rolling pin –
A half empty wine bottle works just as well, in case you were wondering 😉
Last Friday at uni was Op Shop day – where everyone found an item in the local op shops and money was raised to go back to local charities.
Gotta love waking up to sunshine on a Sunday after a miserably cold and rainy couple of days! Although there were some threatening storm clouds on the horizon, the sun peeked through, making it the perfect weather to get out of the house and down to the Village Markets.
