This 485ml tub cost me a fairly hefty $11.95, but for my favourite ice cream treat in the world I happily parted with the cash. Phish Food is a delicious blend of chocolate ice cream with gooey marshmallow swirls, caramel swirls and chocolatey fish - yum!
I'd forgotten how much I liked this stuff, and at only $10 a great bargain!
We just splashed out one of these for summer! I love the ease that you can cook anything from sausages to roasts in the Weber - maybe I should try Weber macarons?
I just ordered one of these for our small fella now he's walking more and more when we're out. I like that this attaches to child and parent by velcro wrist straps making it easier to put on than the traditional harness style reigns - and it's probably cooler (temperature) to wear too. A must have for our upcoming trip overseas. I ordered ours from one of my favourite kids travel goods websites Haggus and Stookles
I stumbled across this cupcake boutique a while ago online, and have finally tasted their divine cupcakes. My favourites are Peanut Buttercup and salted caramel (any surprise?). I also can't wait to book in for a cupcake class early next year! Check out the Kustom Cupcakes website for more info and incidientally they also stock Ben and Jerry's..

I'm one of those prepared people. You know the sort; I've got 60 litres of water stored in the linen cupboard, a crate in the garage with food, blankets, supplies to make an emergency toilet. I spent 20 odd years in the Girl Guides and the motto "Be Prepared" is still embedded front of mind. So when I took my daughter to the movies at the start of the school holidays and she complained of a sore tummy mid film, naturally I had something to cure it with.

Everyone in my family has been blessed with a sweet tooth, and my sister can sniff out chocolate from 100 yards. In honour of her recent weekend visit from interstate I made my Best Ever Chocolate Mousse for pudding. This wickedly decadent dessert is super easy to make and tastes absolutely divine..

My daughter requested a rainbow theme for her 5th Birthday party recently and we had great fun planning the food and decorations on pinterest (check out my rainbow pinterest board) so many rainbow ideas out there!
We had 8 girls come for afternoon tea, to play and do a rainbow craft to take home.

I love roses. The focal point of my garden is my dozen red hybrid tea rose bushes that are my pride and joy, and hardly surprisingly, my signature perfume is Jo Malone red roses. I also have a soft spot for vanilla, anything vanilla scented from The Body Shop.. you've won me over there and then!
A friend asked me to bake her some macarons for a lunch she hosted a couple of weeks ago, seeing it was so close to Valentine's Day I thought a little romanticism in order. What's more romantic than roses with a sultry vanilla twist for Valentines?
