a few of my favourite things {October 2013}


What I make for lunch when I'm craving green papaya salad #vscocam

I'm just putting the final touches on the last of Gourmet Gadget Challenge posts, so I thought I'd sneak in a little favourites post quickly before that goes live sometime in the next day or two. It's been a very busy month, but I've managed to find some little gems on the online world to share with you guys along with some little bits of news too. I hope you enjoy! xx

* Two of my photos have made the cut! So stoked!
* Eeep! I'm on Instagram. Flash eh!
* I still remember when this was filmed + many of the faces in it. Old school Raglan, NZ. Love it.
* Homemade spoon butter. Awesome.
* Pine-lime coconut pops with passionfruit sherbet. Um, yes please.
* Love this remix.
* My babe friend Brenda and Milla (aka cuteness!).
* Sesame almond nori crunchies. Yes, yes, yes.
* Love this idea.
* Great post, great recipe, great blog.
* Honoured to be featured on One Medical along with some of my fav gluten-free bloggers.
* An extremely sad but powerful must read | The ocean is broken.
* Love seeing this kiwi girl take over the world with her music!
* Want this book. But for now, here's a great recipe to try from it.
* Last few days to vote! I'm nominated in the Best Kids Food Blog section. Thank you!

    Read the article on our oceans earlier in the week when you posted it to twitter or something, and have been sending it to everyone I know since. Devastating, but absolutely a call to action. And thanks for showing me a bit of doughnut love, miss. xo

    That article about the dead ocean just brought me a big lump to my throat. So so sad.

      Crazy sad eh? And that fact that it's our fault, us humans, makes it even more sad, sigh.
