Within a couple of hours of getting up this morning, I’m ready to go back to bed !⠀
I feel exhausted !⠀
I don’t know if it’s because it’s Friday, and the end of a busy week;
or because it’s Friday and my To Do list for today is mammoth;
or because it’s Friday and we are still in the midst of a week long heatwave in Johannesburg.⠀
.⠀
But! 
It is Friday! And all those other things, so ice lollies for breakfast it is !⠀
Anyone ?⠀
🙋‍♀️⠀

Sometimes the daily-ness of life gets to me. You know, the eat, sleep, breathe of staying alive. ⠀
I crave adventure, newness and excitement.⠀
Last week I decided to press into the daily-ness. Not to fight it but to embrace it, to fully appreciate what the slow living movement calls the small things. ⠀
To press pause on my feelings of discontent and fully explore where the disconnect was coming from.⠀
I set aside a day and half to simply press into the discomfort, and to do this I cooked.⠀
I cooked and I cooked and I cooked.⠀
7 different recipes from Ottolenghis book Simple.⠀
I picked veggies from my garden, not because I wanted to look cool on social media, but because this is the life I dreamed of having, I made bread, I roasted strawberries I had also grown, and I then I invited family to join me to enjoy the feast I had prepared.⠀
I don’t have a definitive answer, and certainly no “solution”⠀
I’m left exploring the thoughts that balance is simply the ability to appreciate both sides of life the busyness and the daily-ness, the hectic crazy  and the calm, the new and also the familiar.⠀
.⠀
I don’t know for sure.⠀
But what I can say for certain, the food was bloody delicious! So on my blog is a full review of all the dishes I made and the recipe for the meatballs with ricotta and oregano.⠀

I don’t usually follow the Instagram weekend hashtag project - coz quite frankly I can’t be bothered. ⠀
I’m making an exception this weekend because I picked the last of our broad beans yesterday and this picture could not be more appropriate for the theme, which is seasonal.
So whilst our northern hemisphere friends have flooded my feed with beautiful autumn colors I’m jumping in with my lovely homegrown early summer greens.

All I can think about is cake.⠀
I woke up and thought⠀
I feel like cake.⠀
Not coffee⠀
Not breakfast⠀
Cake!⠀
.⠀
Today we are shooting healthy back to school lunches ( for January) ⠀
Which surely means the chances of cake are 0 ⠀
🙃⠀
.⠀
If I hustle I can quickly bake something..⠀
What’s your quick and easy go to cake recipe ?⠀
👇🏻⠀

Hi !⠀
I don’t have much to say, except it’s Wednesday, which you already know, and I like this pic.⠀
That’s it.⠀
Oh and apparently Kim Kardashian ( whom I don’t follow) said that about a pic she posted once, “ I’m posting this because I like it “
Well then,
Now you know I don’t follow..
🙃
Happy day folks 😘

I have never eaten a Mac Donald’s Hamburger ⠀
Ever⠀
In my whole life ⠀
Cross my heart ⠀
.⠀
Yesterday in my fun Friday I asked which of my three statements was a lie ⠀
Truth - I don’t own one single pair of high heel shoes ⠀
Truth - I’ve never watched an episode of the Kardashian’s ⠀
And ⠀
The False statement was the Big Mac is my guilty pleasure, in fact, I’ve never eaten a Mac Donald’s burger.
Nope!
🍔 ⠀
But ⠀
I have eaten cake ⠀
Lots and lots of cake !⠀
Including this one ⠀
A delicious Tahini and Pecan Nut Cake with Sesame seed praline ⠀
I’ll put the recipe up on the blog later ⠀
Happy Saturday friends!⠀

Ha!⠀
What am I looking all cheerful about ..⠀
.⠀
Well, I made it to Friday friends, and frankly it took a lot of prayer, a few tears, some teeth gnashing and finally a good laugh at the state of it all!⠀
.⠀
So let’s have some fun with #fridayintroductions, ⠀
Hi! To the new followers, welcome.⠀
.⠀
To those who’ve been around a while, I thought up a very good 2 truths and a lie ( my last one about the tattoo didn’t fool anybody🙄)⠀
.⠀
Here goes- let’s see if I do better this time !⠀
.⠀
1. I don’t own a pair of high heels⠀
2. I’ve never watched Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s ⠀
3. I absolutely love a Big Mac ( don’t judge me) ⠀
.⠀
Can you guess which one isn’t true ?⠀
.
Ok go !⠀

Lovely lime and coconut popsicles to celebrate all things green on #worldveganday ⠀
🍃

I 💚 the colour green, have a look at my stories for a fab monochrome green theme shoot I did with kale and the Pantone colour Kale.
🌱

As a professional stylist I think it’s so important to be able to style in a variety of different styles, and doing personal projects ( such as the one on stories) is one way of growing and stretching myself.

I’m not a big drinker, so Sober October was only on my radar because a friend mentioned it.⠀
.⠀
Did you partake ?⠀
How did it go ?⠀
I believe sales of these alcohol free G&T,s doubled 😂⠀
.⠀
I made them into ice lollies on our food styling workshop photo shoot, with cucumber and melon and they were delish !⠀
.⠀
After the day I’ve I could quite easily pour myself the real thing, and maybe a double . 😓
