♥ Once wed

So this month has been a great one so far. I have been very slow on the posts since I have just started a new job. I also finally had some time to get our wedding pics together and the great news is they have been featured on Once wed (one of my all time fav wedding sites)!!  P.s Glen Allsop was our  photographer.

♥ Frame walls

I am always on the look out for amazing frame walls, and have been meaning to share some I have found along the way. Today whilst reading my daily list of blogs I came across this one, which was too cool not to share. I love the mix of plates, frames, horns and colour, it works so well.

Via homesweethome - one of my favourite tumblrs.

♥ Chanel rouge coco shine

My new favourite, so much moisture and shine. I got mine in colour 'evasion' which is a fab everyday colour. Cant wait to try another colour soon (maybe even bright red)..

♥ Scones

I have decided this year to be more productive in the kitchen as I love cooking and baking just dont get a lot of time to find recipes and then make them.

I have made scones twice over the past two weeks and both times they have turned out really cute and delicious( cute as in the size of them!)

The recipe is really simple which is why I love it (taken from here).
All you need to concentrate on is not over kneading the dough, as this makes them light and fluffy as opposed to rock cakes.

Oh and the best tip I got mid way through my second batch was to lay all the sones touching each other before baking, this gives them more height which is a good thing.

Plain flour for dusting ( tray and tops of scones before baking)
3 cups of self raising flour
80 grams butter (cubed)
1 1/4 cups of milk
Jam and cream to serve (preferably strawberry)

Pre-heat over to 200 degrees. Use the plain flour to lighly dust the tray and surface where you will knead the dough.
Sift 3 cups of self raising flour into a large bowl.
Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour. It should rub in completely and look like breadcrumbs once ready.
Add 1 cup of milk into the centre of the mix and use a spatula to wind mixture around until it resembles dough. Add the 1/4 cup of milk if required.
Turn dough onto floured surface and knead gently until smooth (dont over knead!)
Pat dough into 2 cm thickness and start cutting out rounds using all available surface area (using a 5cm diameter cutter). Roll mixture together and do remaining rounds.
Place scones on baking tray so that each scone is touching sides gently.
Sprinkle plain flour over tops of scones.
Bake for 20-25 mins or until golden brown. Once ready place on wire rack to cool.

♥ Serve with jam and cream.

♥ Greenhouse by Joost

The writing on the walls, the strawberry plant facade, the recycled conveyor belt floors, the herb roof top, the David Bromley painting - I am totally in love with everything about this place. Not to mention the main reason I actually visited the place was to check out a totally sustainable restaurant in Sydney! Amazing!

They said it was an hour wait when we joined the queue, but no more than 1/2 an hour and we were seated with a great view of the bridge, two jam jars filled of delicious homemade (honey sweet) lemonade, a meat platter and a pizza..happy was an understatement!

A great project that should stick around for longer but apparently it has bigger plans of conquering the world via Milan, Berlin,Budapest, and London. Glad it stopped by in our harbour first..
