Mint Love

My favorite colour to sport this summer is mint - the perfect combination of blue and green. Summer is almost upon us and and I cannot wait to add this colour to my wardrobe!

Geek Chic

Geek Chic - can you believe that there is actually a Wikipedia entry for it!? I have put together some geeky
things that are on my wishlist. The oversized nerd frames are at the top of my list (until I have saved enough
money to buy an ipad!).

Happy Friday everyone! xxx

The burning house

What would you take with you if your house was on fire? "The Burning House" is devoted to this question - it showcases photos and lists of things that people would grab in their moment of truth.

"It's a conflict between what's practical, valuable, and sentimental," says the founder, Foster Huntington. "What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question."

This is such a cool concept! Can't wait to add my photie! Head over here to see more.

I am in-nail-love!

When it comes to nails, I'm no softy! I love playing with bright colours and prints and experimenting with fun designs. Nails are the hot accessory this summer.

These are the 5 main trends:

1. Moon Manicures
2. Metallics & Gold Foil
3. Pop Art Graphics
4. A Study In Neutrals
5. Decals

Cant wait to try some of these! Click here for more info.


As you know, a while back it was my 6 year anniversary. I made this little pocket book for my boyfriend using my own photography and cute sayings. These are some of the photos which I took. I was inspired by objects that were lying around the house or in the garden. He loved the book and I loved making it for him!

Magical Mauritius

Sorry for not posting anything for a while - just got back from Mauritius after spending a week of some much needed R&R. Had such an amazing time. It is the perfect destination for anyone looking for a beautiful beach break. Now it's back to work and the cold! Wish I could go back xxx


Ok, it's official - I have the best boyfriend in the whole world! He baked these chocolate goodies for our 6 year anniversary this weekend :) Yes, you heard me - he made them! Sinfully rich and velvety smooth, this recipe tops any chocolate cake I have ever tasted (and Im not just saying that cos he made it!). Will post the recipe when I get a chance. Definitely think I should get him to bake more often!

Classic Napoletana Pasta

Okay, so I'm not a fan of tomato. At all. But when it comes to Napoletana Pasta, I make an exception! Im such a fan of this sauce, that it's the only thing I order when I go to Primi. Decided to make a version of my own this weekend. The recipe I use reduces the acidity of the tomato. Try it, you won't be disappointed!


- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
- 750g ripe tomatoes skinned; or tomato puree
- Salt and pepper
- 25g butter
- Basil leaves
- Half a cup of milk or cream
- Chilli (optional)


1. Saute the onions, garlic and chilli until golden brown
2. Add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Leave to simmer for
    about 20 minutes
3. Add the milk/cream and butter and mix well. Leave to simmer for
    a further 10-15 minutes
4. Pour over pasta and top with basil or mixed herbs
