vintage cowgirls

it’s kind of a running joke amongst my friends that i dislike dress up parties. don’t know why, maybe because people can’t seem to throw parties without some kind of theme attached, no matter how lame (wear a funny hat!) or maybe it’s because we don’t celebrate halloween in south africa & so didn’t grow up with that ritual of finding a costume every year.

counting down the days

i don’t know about you guys but i’ve always found calendars pretty depressing. they’re a constant reminder that we are just ticking off the days, right? perhaps they’re exciting sometimes when you have something to look forward to (29 days till my cat’s birthday!) that being said, my cynicism is slowly being chipped away by all the rad 2011 calendars i have been spotting, especially this awesome one by camilla engman that catherine posted about a while back

5 ingredients, 10 minutes

i’ve already admitted to being a lazy cook. i resort to avocado or eggs on toast way more than i should (that goes for breakfast, lunch, dinner… snacks) and sometimes a can of chick peas or a tub of hummus is my only salvation. the problem is that i like fast food – as in, quick to make… not the unhealthy variety. ok i love pizza, who doesn’t?
