I have a small head. Yup it can’t be denied that when I was born my aunty looked at me and laughed at how small my head was or that in high school I could fit all the hats in Toys’R’Us designed for infants. Do you need more evidence than a friend seeing a photo of me when I saw younger, collapse with happy tears at remarking that my head was smaller than a hydrangea flower. It makes me wonder how on earth my parents found hats for me as a child.
Halloween is only just becoming a thing here and catching on very slowly with many objectors; its sort of like the Trump campaign in that regard (sorry I just had to America). So, it shouldn’t surprise you to find I’ve only had trick or treaters come around once before. When I was younger and according to my inner hipster “before it was cool” I had an annual Halloween party. These day’s I’d rather wear my enjoyment for Halloween on my sleeve with these spooky Mokuyobi patches and leave the candy and monsters to the kids.
Because the latest Heinui campaign reminds me of 90’s pink and blue fete fairy floss, ikea and hiding under doonas (maybe in Ikea), which in my opinion is always a good thing. French fashion designer, Claire Pignot, whose name I’m surely mispronouncing, has a collection that really appeals to my love of chucking on a simple dress that makes you appear more planned and thoughtful.
What do you do when you make too much icing while putting together some food for your sister-in-laws baby shower?It is a very specific hypothetical but I think the intelligent response is to either throw it away or if you have another occasion coming up, use it for that. My response was to make a whole new cake to pair with the salted caramel icing I made. Turned out to be the best tasting cake I’ve made in a long time!
Snuggle pot and cuddle pie were introduced to me as a new child of Australia and man did I think it was odd at first…but then this is the same beautiful country that adopted “once a jolly swagman” as the morbid people’s choice national anthem. The illustrations kept me paying attention and now it is a trigger of childhood memories.
