WEEKLY ROUND-UP #2

I’m a little late on the round-up post this week, but I feel like Tuesday is still pretty good (once you hit Wednesday do you just give up on the week before)? I missed a few days of outfits this week, plus Monday was a public holiday so I was in pyjamas and painting clothes all week! To account for the missing outfits, I’ve included a few other highlights from my week!

Desk Project
(L) The desk as a work in progress, with the handles removed. (R) The finished product!

So I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with my spare room since I moved into my house, and it has honestly just been a ‘box I can’t be bothered unpacking’ room. However, I recently decided I wanted to do more sewing, so decided to make at least part of the room into a little sewing corner, where I could store my fabric and patterns, and have my machine permanently set up. I didn’t want to buy a cheap and flimsy desk, but I also don’t have the dollars to splash on a super fancy one either – the solution, of course, was scouring the local tip shops to see what gems I could find! What I ended up finding wasn’t very pretty to begin with (and I WISH I had taken a ‘before’ photo) but after a few coats of white paint, it came up an absolute charm for only $25!

Food
(L) French Toast with Pears and Berries at The Picnic Basket. (R) Homemade pizza with 2-ingredient dough. 

Two little food favourite of last week – brunch and pizza! On Saturday I caught up with some old school friends and hit up Taroona haunt The Picnic Basket for a delicious French toast and berries. I’m thinking of doing a ‘Best Brunch in Hobart’ post, so comment below if that’s something you’d be interested in reading. The pizza is featured because I have been OBSESSED recently with this 2-ingredient bread dough that has been going around the internet and sounds too good to be true. To make a pizza-amount of dough (I usually split this in half and eat the other part for lunch the next day), you will need: 1 cup of greek yoghurt and 1.5 cups of self raising flour. THAT’S IT! Just combine and add flour as required while you knead into a dough consistency. Then just spread and cook for about 5 minutes or until brown, and use as you would any other kind of pizza base! I like to mix smoked paprika, salt, pepper, and mixed herbs into the dough to add a more savoury flavour, but you definitely don’t need to do that. It’s so delicious, and super quick and easy!

 

So that’s it for last week! Hope you’re having a great week, I’ll see you next time.

Lots of Love

WEEKLY ROUND-UP #1

Welcome to my weekly round-up! Rather than blogging about my individual outfits each day (which normally I post to instagram anyway), I’ve decided I’m going to do a regular Sunday evening round up of my whole weeks outfits. I’ll include links where items are still available, as well as sizes, brands, and prices.

In future weeks, I may expand this to a kind of weekly favourites, covering food, beauty, books or whatever else I’ve been loving that week. I apologise that not all of the below photos are the best quality (I’m looking at you, bathroom outfit selfie…) but I just wanted to make sure I had a photo of each outfit from the week.
