my gran: anne colborne


One of my favourite blog discoveries is My Mom, the Style Icon which features vintage photos of stylish mums. This inspired me to share some beautiful photos of my grandmother, Anne Colborne.

In many ways, she has been one of my greatest style influences. She was always dressed well - everything she wore was part of an ensemble, not just a couple of garments thrown together. As you can see, alot of thought went into the entire look, even if she was just popping out to the shop. Everyone who knows her, remembers her great sense of style.

She would always encourage me to sit with my legs crossed (I was quite a tomboy when i was small!), wear pretty dresses and have well groomed nails. She was convinced I would one day be a ballerina because of my long legs! Haha! Of course I never took any of her advice back then but I do now. No I am not a ballerina. But I do put alot of effort into what I look like when I walk out the door every morning... I'd like to think that she's smiling down on me and my fashion choices :) She was really an amazing woman inside and out and is missed dearly.

p.s the little girl in the photo is my mum!

chocolate and peanut butter…oh my. 

Ok, so I did a little experimenting on Sunday morning and came up with this great recipe.  Really happy with how these turned out - crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Seriously though, I should have known it would be a win-win situation - you just can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter! Enjoy xxx

200 g margarine, softened
150 ml  sugar
2 eggs
500 ml cake flour
5 ml baking powder
2 heaped spoons peanut butter

Step 1 Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Step 2 Cream the margarine and sugar
Step 3 Add to this 2 heaped spoons of peanut butter and mix well
Step 4 Combine the dry ingredients and add to the cream mixture
Step 5 Drop teaspoonsfuls of mixture onto a greased baking tray
Step 6 Bake  for 10 –15 minutes (do not overcook, should be soft in the middle)
Step 7 Turn out onto wire racks to cool or eat while it's still warm like i did :)

From the block | Jenny Ong

Stumbled across Jenny Ong while browsing through lookbook and I've been crushing on her fashion sense ever since. This girls got major style! When you view her blog and lookbook page, you will see what I mean…

Sunday morning

Woke up early sunday morning to bake some Cappuccino Muffins before watching South Africa vs Wales. I've been wanting to make these muffins for a while now because I love anything coffee-related and I was really happy with the outcome! The texture was soft and fluffy, with just enough sweetness to make it appropriate for breakfast. I'm not a morning person but these bad boys were worth waking up for!

My family and I enjoyed snacking on these while we watched the game. And what a game it was! I officially have no nails left! But a win is a win, so well done to the boks :)

Have a great weekend everyone xxx

Food through a lens

Oh.em.gee. I have died and gone to food heaven! I really love how German photographer, Ira Leoni captures food. These were just some of my favorites. Click here or here if you'd like to see more of her yummy photography and recipes!

Bark Decor

I have always been passionate about green design. So much, that I did a campaign around 'being green' when I was at varsity (will post some pics of it soon).

With that said, these screen printed lovelies from Bark Decor are all green! The illustrations are printed by using eco-friendly inks and sun exposed screens. Would love to have one of these in my home!
