Please put your hands together and welcome Kimmi. Kimmi is my ultra, ultra, bestest friend of eight years. She is quite possibly the coolest, most laid-back, happy-go-lucky chicky I know. Last month Kimmi celebrated her 30th birthday in her home town of Cairns. I had the pleasure of sharing the weekend with her and her lovely husband, Sean, in their stunning, rainforest-surrounded house. Kimmi created all her own decorations for the party, including folding 98 paper cranes! I ‘helped’ put the last touches on the photo booth the day I arrived (aka I stood around drinking heaps of wine, trying on the crazy costumes and taking photos while Kimmi finished the photo booth). The booth was a huge hit with all the party-goers and captured so many great memories from the weekend.Read More
It’s Meat Free Week this week and so of course we had to give you a new recipe to try out. I have been working on this little guy for quite a while, tweaking it to get it just right.

Allow me to share a tried and true method for raiding your friends’ wardrobes and keeping the spoils – legitimately. It’s called a clothes swapping party and 96.34 per cent of people agree it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Or something.Read More
When people think of wishing trees they naturally think of weddings. Last year however, as I held a party to celebrate my 30th birthday, I began thinking about how I could make my party the most eco-friendly it could be (you can read more about this in my post here). In between questioning the eco-friendliness of decorations, food and invitations I realised just how much waste comes from giving presents – think wrapping paper, ribbons, cards, envelopes – and then being vegan adds a whole other degree of difficulty – plus I have pretty much everything I need.Read More
Lately I’ve become obsessed with handmade paper banners — they’re super sweet, really easy to make and can be customised to suit all different occasions.Read More
