Collecting Khaki

image


Perhaps it's the season change, or maybe it's a trend I'm just going along with, but khaki is seriously on my hit list. The delectable combination of black, denim & khaki is one of the (few!) good things about Winter.  Kidding, I love all seasons.  But Summer is the best.  Followed by Spring and Autumn, with Winter bringing up the freezing rear.

Eat Out: The Hardware Cafe # 2



If T would please return from her honeymoon & accompany me on a brunch date, I'd be majorly pleased.  The blog would likely be pleased too as I have done a dastardly job of being sole custodian. #comebackT

Season Change

Whether we like it or not, Autumn has begun & before we know it the temperatures will be more often in the 20s than in the 30s (Noo!! Come back Summer!) but if there's one good thing about a season change, it's updating the 'drobe.  No need to invest in new clothes though, especially with basics being "so in".  This season, focus on the things you throw on last, just before you go out the door feeling fabulous.

Public service announcement to all Perth-ites by the way - a new General Pants is opening (tomorrow!) in Joondalup, joining Mecca & all the other awesome things happening in the northern 'burb.
Half the above things can be located in said store.

Interiors: Scientific Chic

Give a girly nerd a house to decorate & the above is how I imagine the result.  Well, it would be in my bower bird hands anyway, with my conical flask/assorted jars collection blossoming every single weekend.  All I need now is for Mrs T to fix me up with some greenery.

Event: Karrinyup Swim & Resort 2015

DSC09947

I guess you've gotten the vibe already that S & I love the coastal life (if not, scroll down for a couple of pages for some proof).  Frequenters of Scarborough for morning fitness times and general pig-outs, we were pretty chuffed that Karrinyup had wholeheartedly embraced the late Summer weather for a good ol' swimwear and resort showcase.  Click on through for a brief foray into the first parade of togs, and get yourself some body-envy in the meantime...

How To: Healthy Chia Jam

Chia jam has been doing the internet rounds - the current fad shall we say - but I just had to post about it in case there's someone out there who hasn't given it a go.  This recipe, if it even qualifies for such a title, is the simplest and most delicious spread.  In fact, you can skip the toast & try it on some vanilla yoghurt for dessert, or as an ice-cream topping.  The jar will only last a couple of weeks in the fridge (going preservative free will do that!) so you will find some novel ways to eat it, such as alone with a spoon ;)

RECIPE
Strawberries
Chia seeds

Cook the former, then mix with the latter.  Too runny after a few minutes?  Add some more seeds.
Voila.

Aint No Wifey (Yet)

T's bachelorette party was always going to be an AM affair, grandmas that we are, so I went all out to create a memorable brunch in celebration her impending nuptials.  We were kept full with ladylike treats & kept busy making flower crowns, but most of all the company made it a morning good enough for such a deserving friend.

This Busy Life

Replying busy to an enquiry about your wellbeing is, well, avoiding the question to say the least.  There seems to be an epidemic of busy-ness & no one person is busier than the other, so really there's not much point in telling your fellow busy bee about the state of your busy bee life.  I'm ranting about this because my current life-plan is to become UN-BUSY.  Watch this space as this topic is not done.

In an attempt to get away from the crazy multi tasking world we live in, I spent the last couple of weeks focusing on/dream up/planning/organising T's bachelorette brunch to the detriment of other non-work activities including the blog.  While I'm sure not a tear was shed over the absence, patience will be rewarded in the form of party photos... soon!

Mara Hoffman & Edun Fall RTW 2015

As if I needed more prompting to jump onto the Weitzman-wagon for Winter.  Thanks NYFW.
And black would be such a boring choice of boot!
