I was recently asked by the wonderful Marichelle over at Heart Handmade to be a House Guest over at her blog. If you love handmade (which I know you all do!) be sure to check it out if you haven't already!
Anyway, it was a lot of fun to write a post for someone else (and a little scary too!) and it was even more fun (but super hard!) to pick some of my all time favourite art of right now.
Go have a look here. I hope you enjoy!!

currently loving porcelain at the moment. but more so Studio Violet
I mean seriously. Just have a trawl around the website.
So why not review my own cooking??
Well I should have taken my own photo because the lovely featured image is from VeganYumYum's post (the main reason I love that blog is for the photos!), but in all seriousness, mine looked pretty close to that, without all the fancy lighting and sweet photography.
It was SUPER easy to cook, and fail-proof in my books, and I do fail quite a bit in my cooking experiments (must remind myself I am only learning!). It uses what I call cupboard staples, so you generally don't need to buy anything extra, and it was very quick to make.
Me; YUM! And YAY there was some left over because now I have a yummy lunch!
Boyfriend; Yeahh not bad, maybe a bit strong.
(ok yeah it was a TAD strong, and I don't know what the "strong" element was.. maybe the Dijon? Which was "Extra strong Dijon" because it was the cleanest Dijon I could find when shopping.)
But I shall try again and I will try the other version too!
I am always up for clean healthy natural recipe suggestions too if anyone has any fail-proofies!
The worst part is, I don't get hungry when I am sick. And love food so much. I mean come on!! So I might be a bit neglectful around here, but I will try my best.

Do you ever get that feeling that some things just have to be blogged about. Even if so many others already have?
This morning while reading Peppermint Mag, this blogging urge hit me.
I love the beautiful cover by bec winnel

Popular phrases that tend to get thrown around at dinner time with my family are "catch and kill", or "survivor dinner", with the idea that dinner is basically just a free for all, find whatever you can in the house and cook it and eat it. Sometimes when the money situation is particularly thin, we might even play "survivor week" where no food shopping is allowed to be done, as there is bound to be something eatable in the kitchen that can be prepared.
I think this concept has become particularly important and relevant during this wonderful economic crisis global recession or whatever we are calling it these days (surely there is an acronym going around, GEC sounds familiar).
Tonight I am planning on making a quiche, something I have never actually done before. I make plenty of frittata’s, but I thought it was time I extended the recipe to include a base. Realising that I didn't have any flour at home, I began writing a little list of the things I would need to complete some of the recipes I have been looking at. Flour, cream, butter, etc etc. Gosh the list was getting pretty big and I have already done the dedicated food shop for the week.
Then my survivor instinct kicked in. I had the thought that maybe there are quiche recipes that use potatoes as a base? After a quick google I came up with a few options. Obviously in the nature of survivor dinner I can only use things that I have so I have made up my own version of a recipe which I plan on test flying tonight.
We are looking at so far;
Hopefully I will be able to create something eatable out of this lovely collection. I just can't decide whether to mash the potato or thinly slice. Hmm any suggestions?
I shall let you know of the results!
I LOVE YOUR SPATULAS by dazeychic
...when you get excited shopping for tea towels and other homely homewares. I am actually a little obsessed with this form of shopping at the moment. And I just love it.
EVERYTHING from Materialistic is on my current wish list.
But seriously, look how easy it is become addicted with all the lovely options!
Edit: Sweet I can totally blog just by sending an email! If you are using blogger go to Settings>Email & Mobile and there should be an email address for you to send your posts to. This will be perfect for sneaky phone blogging, because while the iPhone is wonderfully amazing, it is a bit of a strain to completely log into blogger.
Above is my take on the ultimate breaky (sorry about the phone photo quality, but hey, maybe it is a thing of the future!)
"Be pleasant until ten o'clock in the morning,
and the rest of the day will take care of itself."
So had to share some nice people moments I experienced today.
