Every single day in the office, at least once, the following conversation will take place: “How the hell do you walk in those heels?” To which I respond, with my trademarked (not really) smile: “Glamorously.” I then, of course, give the person a short instruction on how to walk in heels because you can’t be… Continue reading How to walk in heels (effortlessly)
Dear Makeup, It’s been a while – how are you? I see you like unicorns now. And mermaids. If you’re not running around in the nude, of course. Isn’t it funny how much we change over the years? We haven’t spent much time together recently, if any at all. I see you around of course… Continue reading A Letter to my Makeup
Ever heard the term “cinephile”? Well, I ain’t one of those. My attention span is literally 45 minutes max, so taking me to see a movie is all good and fine, (especially if I have popcorn, cause I love me some popcorn. In fact, I love popcorn so much I literally don’t have a microwave… Continue reading What I’m watching: August
Ok you guys, so I’ve been doing a bit of a redesign for my blog (yes yes, I am taking a hiatus, but I got bored because for some reason I struggle to actually do nothing, y'know?), and as I’ve been prepping graphics for my big new shiny new look at the end of September,… Continue reading What the actual fuck, Bry Jaimea?
Hello readers! TGIF, am I right? Anyhoo, the purpose of this post is basically to say I’m going to be taking a wee hiatus from the blog. Blogging takes a lot of energy – emotional, psychological, creative and physical – and at the moment I simply don’t have the energy to keep this going. It’s… Continue reading Blog Update
Growing up in Australia, I never really had the chance to travel much as, well, Australia is kinda in the middle of nowhere. Overseas vacations are quite expensive and it take a lot of travel time just to get anywhere, so most Aussie’s don’t get to travel as much as they’d like to, unless they… Continue reading Wanderlust Wishlist
It’s extremely rare for me to buy any pre-made sauces: not only are they packed with filler ingredients, but tend to also contain a lot of sugar, and I don’t particular find that sweetness necessary, or even nice in any way shape or form. Of course, I will buy Thai curry pastes in a jar,… Continue reading Cheats Pizza Sauce
Hands up if you’ve ever given up on something, just thrown something away unfinished, unaccomplished, whether it was a hobby, a job, a dream, a relationship. It’s not something any of us want to admit, yet I think we’ve all been guilty of this at one time in our lives or another. It can be… Continue reading Don’t give up!
You know what I love? Tea. I’m not awake until I have my first (oversized) mug of green tea in the morning, which I make incredibly strong using two teabags of the strongest brand I can find. If Ben and I are driving anywhere, even the short distance to visit his mum, I have a… Continue reading The perfect (but controversial!) cup of tea
I had four days off over the weekend! Hooray! This of course meant I was able to indulge in a lot of cooking. Saturday night we had Ben’s mum over for dinner and so I constructed the first Lasagne al Forno I’d made in about five years (needed more beschamel!), as well as my classic… Continue reading How to make Whipped Feta
