My Home Tour

The last time I did a home tour on this blog, I lived in New Farm and had recently moved into a new apartment. It was a little sparse and although there were some things that were my style (hello parquet flooring), there were definitely things that weren’t (cream walls, I’m looking at...

Trend I Love: Modern Farmhouse

I don’t think it’s any great secret that in my dream scenario, I would love in a period farmhouse, with chickens in the backyard, children running around and dogs scampering after them. At this point in life, my idol is Joanna Gaines – and I’m okay with that. So it...

My Favourite Neutral Cushions Under $100

I know for a fact that I’m not alone in being a cushion addict. In fact, it’s a constant battle at my house – I would happily have the sofa, armchair and beds full of pillows, Rob, on the other hand, would be happy with none. I also know that I’m not the only one that falls...

Trend I Love: New Victorian

I’ve been in love with this trend so waaay longer than I should admit (we’re talking at least 5 plus years), but when you love something, you can’t help it. I don’t think it helped my cause that one of my dear friends lived in a Victorian home until around 6 months ago so I...

On Recipe Journals

I have what may seem a slightly odd question for you today. Do you have a recipe journal? No? Then why not? I do, and this is why… In this age of Pinterest, blogs and Instagram, recipe journals may seem a little redundant but in much the same way I will never give up books for a Kindle (even...

My Favourite Easter Recipes

I can’t believe it’s just over a week until Easter! I am so excited! I have to say, after Christmas, Easter is my favourite holiday. I think it’s because, for me at least, it’s all about family. Preparing the food in the days before, painting eggs, waking up to find a trail...

Recipe: Sesame Seed and Salted Pretzels

I made these a couple of weekends ago for the Super Bowl (yes, I am Brit that watches American Football #deal). It was the first time I had ever attempted pretzels but my word were they delicious! I used a combination of different recipes to create this one, so I thought I would share them with...

Recipe: GF Raspberry Banana Bread

Rebranding this little space as The Bookery has really pushed me back into baking. I mean this can’t be an online version of my bricks-and-mortar store if I don’t do any baking right?! And I am LOVING it! My waistline (and Mr S’s) not so much, but thankfully, most of what I make...

Favourite Summer Recipes

I don’t know about you but the minute the temperatures start to creep up and the sun is up before 5.30am, the last thing I was to do is spend hours slaving over a hot stove. And that’s saying something coming from someone who loves cooking as much as she loves books! When summer arrives...

Recipe: Warm Salmon Salad

I know, usually I’m a baker, but this recipe was so darn good, I just had to share it with you! Whatever the weather’s doing where you are, it’s the perfect post-Christmas detox meal – though I’m not going to lie, it’s going to be on high-rotation around here for...

‘Tis the season to be jolly. And also when your schedule becomes jam packed with holiday parties, family commitments and where temptations of unhealthy food is all around us and we become so busy we lose sight of eating healthy. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be eating a fair few...
