My New Years Resolutions 2018
I actually had completely forgotten to make New Years resolutions until I read Esther's post earlier this week! It inspired me, so I decided to write down my very own resolutions and share them with you. I am totally aware that some of these ideas will fall by the wayside (see above photo where I ...
Baby Loves Science -- little books about big ideas!
A few months ago I received a sweet email from a woman named Sarah asking if she could send us a few copies of her mother's board books for babies. We happily accepted her kind offer and a week later we received the Baby Loves Science series of books written by Sarah's mum, Ruth Spiro. ...
Tomato Paste -- spread it onto bread and call it dinner!

The Wobbel Board and fun wooden play tunnels
I'm a big fan of open-ended play and evergreen toys -- toys that our kids play with religiously, independently of their age. This year for Christmas, we've added a few toys that I feel belong to the list we created a while ago: both pretty, natural and great toys that our kids all love playing ...
Teen Breathe - a new magazine for teenagers
One of my favourite things to do on a plane or train is to pick up a magazine at the newsagents. I sit down and take my time looking at pictures, reading articles and seeing what is up and what's new. I get anything from fashion, interior design to current affairs. The great thing in ...
2018: My personal goals
Happy New Year everyone! I've just dusted off my computer, dug up a shiny new notebook and made myself a cup of lemon/ginger/kurkuma/honey tea. 2018 is going to be a great year, and of course I'm kicking it of with big plans! Here's my list of personal aims and goals for this year: 1. Be ...
Snowy Lime Cookies -- Mouthwateringly delicious and pretty too
It has been snowing a lot in many parts of the globe, but here in London we are longing for a winter wonderland moment to happen. Ok, we may be the only ones waiting, and we know the snow had been relentless in much of the US this winter, but that should not stop anyone ...
The sweetest swimwear from Minnow
We're in the height of summer here in Australia and the kids are pretty much living in their swimsuits. We even live in a town where it's totally acceptable to run errands in your swimsuit, shoes completely optional. (Michael and I joked the other day that you always know the tourists because they're wearing proper ...

Hi guys! Here Bethie and I are showing you how to prepare a super easy dish that your family will love -- a video we bring to you in cooperation with Abel & Cole, deliverer of fabulous food boxes filled to the brim with organic freshness! Here's the list of ingredients: a royal 1 tbsp of olive oil 1 butternut squash 1 red onion 2 red peppers 2 garlic cloves 4 vine tomatoes 150g quinoa sea salt & freshly ground pepper 300 ml vegetable stock 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 25g raisins 80g black olives And for the garnish: a handful of chervil feta (optional) Directions: Peel your butternut squash. Cut in half and scoop out the seeds. Chop the flesh into 1cm chunks. Peel and cut the onion into thick slices. Cut the pepper in half and scoop out the seeds and white pith. Chop into bitesized pieces. Peel and thinly slice the garlic. Roughly chop the tomatoes. Rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitterness. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large heavy based pan. Tip in all the veg and quinoa. Pour in the veg stock and the red wine vinegar. Add the raisins and the olives. Season with salt and pepper. Pop on a lid and cook for 30-40 mins until the squash is soft and the sauce thick. Stir every now and then during cooking. Scatter over the chervil (or flat leaf parsley leaves) and serve in warm bowls. Top with crumbled feta if you like! A super colourful, super easy and super delicious dish for taste buds of all ages! Bon appétit!
