Pineapples, table setting

By Friday, February 27, 2015

I love having friends for dinner and the one thing I always enjoy doing is creating a great table setting for any occasion, formal or informal - it’s one of my favourites things to do! As we are celebrating all things pineapple this week, I thought why not talk about some fun ways to incorporate this delicious fruit into your ...

  • Pineapples, party time

    By Thursday, February 26, 2015

    Summer just rushes through us doesn't it? I feel as though I spend all year chasing the sun - from basking it in alfresco style to planning all my holidays around it. This summer was a mixed bag of crazy weather for Melbourne, not a long hot summer but one interrupted by storms and windy cold days. As usual though we ...

  • Pineapple, designs

    By Wednesday, February 25, 2015

    As I mentioned yesterday there is a lot of fashion and decor items at the moment that have pineapples on them. I have to say I love how happy they make me feel and how such a simple shape can look so seriously cool. Sure it’s kitsch and if not done properly can look a little odd - but what ...

  • Last Days of Summer

    By Tuesday, February 24, 2015

    There are so many things to love about Australia, the sun, the sand, the cafe’s, the crazy little spots that rarely get talked about but have their own personalities that can only be defined as truly Aussie. The one that I am thinking of the Big Pineapple. We love pineapples so much that we have a tourist attraction in Queensland ...

  • Real Housewife, my home

    By Friday, February 20, 2015

    My home is very special to me, it is an absolute reflection of who I am and who we are as a family. Our home was frequently used last year in the filming of season 1 and has also been covered in lot’s of magazine articles and you will see it some more in season two. I love that I ...

  • Real Housewife, fashion

    By Tuesday, February 17, 2015

    Without a doubt, the question I am asked the most in regards to RHOM is 'Who are you wearing? Where is that from?' Whether it be a dress, a pair of shoes or a gorgeous piece of jewellery - I am always happy to oblige. My style is very eclectic - I can go from minimal and structured suits in ...

There are certainly more twists and turns with the arrival of the two new housewives. Does everything run smoothly? Of Course not, but that's how all the fun starts. In this ...

  • Valentines, night in

    By Friday, February 13, 2015

    To me Valentine's Day is all about a beautiful bunch of flowers, a romantic dinner and some time relaxing together.  My ideal dinner is one at home, I know - it’s not the most exciting way to celebrate as there are so many fab restaurants around but we spend so much time out and about it’s almost a novelty to stay in. It’s ...

  • Valentines, party time

    Last year my son BJ turned 18 - so what better night to have a party than on Valentine's Day. Being summer it was the most perfect night and we had 200 friends and family to a sit down black tie dinner under the stars. The dress code specified 4 colours for the girls to wear. Red if you were ...
