a few of my favourite things {August 2014}

Life and its little signs have always fascinated me. Just the other day we were at a park with the kids when I spotted a bunch of punga trees (native to my homeland, NZ and rarely seen over here in Western Australia). Naturally it got me thinking about home and how much I miss everything about it. Then we get the sad news of my Nana's passing yesterday. I'm heading home tomorrow to be with my family. My heart hurts, but I'm forever grateful for the precious moments I had with her. She was my rock, my light and support in times when life was dark and scary. Please hug your loved ones close. xx

* Best travel pillow ever. Worth every cent, trust me. I bought one in LA and slept nearly the entire 14 hour flight home. Without it (on the flight over), I barely slept a wink. I'll be using it to get some sleep on the flight to NZ tomorrow!

* This article.
* Love.
* With Food + Love
* Fresh outa Melbourne
* So bloody inspiring.
* Fresh outa Brisbane
* This breaks my heart
* Angus + Julia Stone. Can't. Get. Enough
* Steller app. Not that I need another reason to be on my phone, but... (I made a little story about making the pizza dough from my book, with video! There's one for making milk kefir too!)
* You can grab two of the recipes from my cookbook over on I Quit Sugar! Here + here.
