Here comes the season change. Aaand, bless you.

With winter jackets, comes a pocket stuffed with tissues. For some, allergies get you stared down by passers-by… But for others, they have to stop themselves from handing, a victim of allergies, a tissue when you see them all bright nosed and bushy eyed, if you will… So, how to avoid being that victim and […]

The three R’s

Reuse, reduce and recycle. Since we’re in the shadow of yesterday’s Earth Day – we thought to ascribe today’s post to matters concerning the mother of our world.

Sold on the idea of a wine cellar

Sleek, smart and sophisticated … appliances, that is

As far as appliances go, this Trend Stalker is a Smeg girl through and through. That retro styling, those out-there colours … a sunshine-yellow fridge takes pride of place on my dream board.

Vampires, meadows and moustaches … a very odd mix

modern landscape design by san diego landscape architect debora carl landscape design All manner of tasteless ’taches aside, Movember has been a good month. Not a single pot plant has died on me!

Guest loos for dummies

“Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out, and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out. When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you […]
