Inspired By - Pink & Gold


I am obsessed with pink and gold at the moment and my work space, the ever changing mood board of mine, is reflecting the latest craze. I am the first one to admit my love for pink and now that I'm desperate for some colour in our home I try to incorporate it with our current decor. I love the pop of colour and golden accents add just the right amount of glamour in to the space.

Roasted Cauliflower and Quinoa Salad


Every time I have cauliflower I realise how much I love it, but I don't have it often enough. This roasted cauliflower and quinoa salad was perfect for a sunny winter's day. I got the inspiration from this recipe, but since I didn't have most of the ingredients I just used what I happened to have in the fridge. The original recipe sounds amazing though, so I might just give that a go next. 

Roasted Cauliflower and Quinoa Salad
(serves 4)

1 whole cauliflower, cut in to florets
1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
olive oil
salt
pepper
1 cup quinoa (I used white)
vegetable stock
1/4 lemon, juiced
baby spinach
slivered almonds

1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Scatter cauliflower and onion on a roasting pan, add olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes or until tender. 

2. Rinse quinoa and cook in vegetable stock until tender and fluffy. Add lemon juice and mix with a fork. 

3. Combine quinoa with the vegetables and sprinkle with almonds. Serve warm.

DIY Make Up Bag


I've been looking for a new make up bag for quite a while, but never seem to find one that ticks all the boxes. I came across this pattern and decided to give it a go. The size is just perfect (I made mine a bit smaller than the original pattern) and I love the pastel colours. These are so quick and easy to make I might just have to make a couple more!

A Quest for Colour


I'm done with the black and white look and on a quest to add some colour and patterns to our home. I'm starting quite conservatively with these water colour cushions. I love the subtle hues and the unsymmetrical splashes. Although I don't mind winter in Australia, these colours remind me of spring to come.
