To liven up my pregnancy wardrobe, I am finding I have been wearing a lot of stripes, chunky jewellery and blazers/jackets lately. Today I am wearing a lilac coloured floral lightweight jacket, navy and white striped singlet and black stretch jeans - ok jeggings :) Florals and stripes are one of my favourite combinations at the moment - it sounds weird and is probably not meant to go together but I think the bold clashing prints work together perfectly!

The Mr and I spent last week's long weekend in Hoi An, Vietnam. We had an amazing mini getaway and stayed at one of the most incredible resorts I have ever been lucky enough to stay at - a completely luxe experience. We also spent time in the quaint little town of Hoi An, walking the streets and feasting on yummy Vietnamese food. A minibreak full of contrasts. I always love being in Vietnam. Although I was born and raised in Australia, I am of Vietnamese heritage so there is always something that feels so familiar whenever I visit (even though I haven't actually spent that much time there). Maybe it's seeing where I come from, being able to read the signs and understand the language (sorta most of the time! :)) or the familiar food smells... I'm not quite sure. One of my favourite Vietnamese food blogs, The Ravenous Couple, posted about their recent trip to Vietnam. It's a great little photo essay of their journey in Vietnam. Read their post and you
Falling in love with the new resort collection from Singapore born, Nepal raised designer, Prabal Gurung . The clashing prints and structured lines gives you something a little bit unexpected, bold and completely striking.
We had a little dinner party last weekend which meant we still had quite a bit of salami and cheese left over from our pre-dinner cheese platter. So I used up the leftovers to bake some savoury muffins this afternoon and they turned out yummy! My Savoury Muffin Recipe (adapted from Taste's Savoury Picnic Muffins ) 2 cups self-raising flour 80g butter, melted, cooled 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 cup milk Ham/ salami / deli meat (I have no idea about measurements maybe 50 - 100g) Grated cheese (I have no idea as I just used our left over grated parmesan and cheddar - maybe 100g) MAKE: Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 12 hole muffin tin or use patty cases Sift flour into a large bowl. Make a well in centre. Pour butter, egg and milk into a jug. Stir to combine. Pour into well. Stir until almost combined. Fold through cheese and deli meat. Spoon mixture in. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside
Kith recently opened their second outlet at Park Mall (the Mr and I were very excited when we heard as it is walking distance from our place). We used to spend most weekends at the Kith at Robertson Quay (and if you have visited us, no doubt we have taken you!) but the Park Mall outlet is a lot bigger and with a more extensive menu and it being closer to home, it has now become our new go to breakfast/brunch place on the weekend. Good food, great coffee, lovely owner Jane and her wonderful staff.... My favourite place to spend a Sunday. Images c/o Kith's facebook page
