I love me some January with the smell of ‘fresh start’ in the air. The weather’s uplifting, your energy is renewed and you feel like you CAN loose those extra 5 kg’s AND find the man of your dreams with time left over to start that pottery class you’ve always wanted to do. So let’s take a minute to send some props to January because it really does treat us with respect, like a one night stand who offers to drop you home in the morning. In an ode to this stunner of a month, here’s a little glimpse of the things I’ve been loving in Jan.
Like your boyfriend who says he needs some ‘time apart’, Summer is already half gone baby! So let’s make the most of the time we have left with this mighty fine weather. Here’s a little checklist I’ve put together for all the things you MUST do (you have no choice in the matter, so deal) before summer is OH-VEE-EEE-ARRRR. So get busy summering!
Ugh, don’t you hate it when a stunning Adelaide Hills winery invites you to check out their new Tasting Room and Sunday lunch? I really couldn’t think of anything more retched than driving through the scenic Adelaide Hills and it’s vibrant green paddocks, speckled with livestock and native flora. Even worse, is when everyone is so damn friendly and welcoming, stuffing you with despicably divine food and booze. Well, I had to live that nightmare a few Sunday’s ago. Ya’ll feeling sorry for me, I know.
It’s officially hot on this great brown land of ours and it’s time to make sure the wardrobe matches the forecast. Wrap dresses are indisputably in full swing, but what are the accessories we should be on the hunt for this summer season? Stick with me, my friends and I will take you to a little place I like to call ‘on trend’.
When you think summer, you don’t necessarily think tea. I, however, am of the opinion that tea is an all year round kinda beverage, especially when you work 50 hours a week in an office that puts the air-con on the Haley-Joel-I-see-dead-people setting. I figure I mustn’t be the only one who loves to lap up a tea on a hot summer’s day, so here you have it – my favourite summer teas.
