MY CUPPA 4 CANSA {BLACK & WHITE WITH A POP OF COLOUR}

I love the Cuppa 4 Cansa* campaign. Maybe because it’s an excuse to have a party AND do something worthwhile at the same time? I’m so grateful that my inner-inner circle has not been affected by breast cancer, but I know many women who have & I really believe that this is a cause worth […]

foodie crushes: Russian Doll Kitchen Goodies

How cute are Russian dollies? I can’t put my finger on why I love them so much. Maybe it’s the surprise element? Or just the fact that they’re such fun to unpack? Anyhow, they’re still as cute (or even cuter) today as they were when first carved back in 1890. Whether you like to call them […]

MINI S’MORES {RECIPE}

For a while now, I’ve been thinking of MINI TREATS FOR MINI PEEPS, so this was the first experiment! Technically this  cannot be classified as a recipe. Maybe I should call it a ‘throw-together’.

Blueberry Lemon Tea Cakes {recipe}

It’s no secret that I love lemons & any recipe that contains lemon for that matter. The combination of the lemon & blueberries in this Martha Stewart recipe is totally heavenly. The original recipe calls for a stick of butter & baking soda, so I’ve adapted some of the wording & measurements so that it’s slightly easier […]
