Shoe of the week

We have just passed mid  winter here in Auckland, New Zealand. Already signs of spring are starting to emerge, the magnolias are in bloom, the sheep in Cornwall park are heavily pregnant, and daffodils are already showing their sunny heads. We have also just booked our flights home to Australia for Christmas, so i am already thinking of my summer wardrobe. I would love this gorgeous pair of Rhonda heels from Miss L fire, they would go with everything! And even if they didn’t I would wear them any way. And they have cherries, what more could you want! Available in 3 colours, see http://shop.misslfire.com/products/product/Rhonda for more details.

Unicorn gym pants!

I am very much in need of new gym pants. When I run my pants fall down, so i spend my entire run pulling up the back of my pants, arrgghh! My sister recently bought a pair of rainbow mermaid pants from Pink punk and said they were fantastic! So I just went on their site this morning and discovered they have rainbow unicorn gym pants, oh my goodness, I had to order them, and hopefully they are on their way to New Zealand right now!

Available in either capri or full length pant, they also sell sporty skirts and racer back tops. They are pretty reasonably priced as well!

Once my order arrives I will provide a review of them!

Slow cooker Chocolate fudge

For quite a long time now i’ve been seeing recipes pop up for slow cooker fudge on my face book news feed. Today we needed to make a present for a chocolate loving friends birthday, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to road test the recipe.

Ingredients:

500 g of chocolate (I used Whittaker’s almond and milk chocolate)

1 395 g tin of condensed milk (full fat variety)

1 tablespoon of butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla

Method

Break up the chocolate and place all of the ingredients in your slow cooker on a low heat with the lid off.Stir every 15 minutes with a plastic/silicon or metal spatula (not a wooden spoon). Continue to stir every 15 minutes for 2 hours.

Pour into a slice tin lined with grease proof paper.

Put aside to set, either in the fridge, or if you are in chilly new zealand at the moment like me, out on your bench. After approximately an hour it should be set, and once set, slice in bite size squares.

The beauty of this recipe is you can really use any type of chocolate you like. I used almond but you could use dark chocolate, or add smarties or m & m’s or nuts, or even make a rocky road fudge. Yum!

It’s frocktastic friday

I have two main fashion loves in life, shoes and pretty dresses. Today I was given the most wonderful gift, a book that is a homage to divine shoes. Today I think my favourite pair are the gold butterfly shoes from  Alexander McQueen’s Spring/summer 2011 collection, they remind me of a midsummer night dream for some reason!

New to their website is this super cute classic pussy bow dress! Available in a variety of colours, I think I  may be ordering the navy with red contrast.

Miss Lucy loves Dinoplanters

As the mother of a 5 year old Dinosaur obsessed little boy, I was instantly charmed by Dinoplanters.

Available in a variety of sizes and Dinosaur types, why would you bother with a boring pot plant when you can have a Dinoplanter!

Each dinosaur comes with it’s own charming dino rescue story, and if you live in Australia, you can also purchase the plants to pot into your dinoplanter.

It’s a frocktastic friday

I’m partial to novelty print, I think it’s a fantastic way to bring uniqueness, humour and personality to an outfit. I  am loving this cowboy inspired print from Emily and fin. The dress checks all the boxes for me, a-line, cinched at the waist, flattering length and then it has the most fabulous print!
