I was invited down to Soho's newish Japanese Peruvian fusion restaurant, Chotto Matte. With that mix of food styles I obviously had to see what all of the fuss was about, plus after googling the venue I saw they had a really unique interior style. Basically, there was just a whole lotta' intrigue surrounding this joint! I took along my homie Elisah to help me test the finest of their fusion cuisine with some interesting results...Read More

Hey guys! So I'm back from Stockholm. I had such a great time! It wasn't particularly relaxing (6 adults and 5 kids means it was hectic) but it was super fun and I got to explore the beautiful city a bit. Pics to come...
In the meantime, check out my most recent interview that I did with the Nuffnang blogger community where I talk all about juggling family, work and my blog as well as what inspires me.Read More
Hey peeps, I'm on a well deserved break until Sunday the 18th of August strolling around beautiful Stockholm with my fellow Scandis. There will be a bit of quiet but all back to normal on Monday morning!
I'll take lots of pics for ya :)

What she opened was a screen print of someone in very brightly printed clothes carrying shopping bags. It was ultra zoomed in and just focus on a single area.

It's already August. Where did those months go?! Before we know it we'll be packing away the barbecue and bringing out those cosy blankets again. I have to say I'm quite looking forward to it. The change of seasons always bring around a sense of nostalgia and memories of past years.
I've put together an edit of ten key homewares for August, that are the perfect mix of 'end of Summer' and 'Autumn's coming'!
I was scrolling through my facebook feed recently when I came across the most brilliant stair makeover I have ever seen. The oh-so-multi-talented Fatsarazzi had spent his morning revamping his perfectly lovely but a little plain staircase with vintage film photos. LOVE! Of course I had to jump right on his case and get him to share all of his tips so that you can recreate something just as awesome for your own home. So here's the deets and the before and after!Read More
