What Advice would you give your Younger Self?

I threw a question out on Facebook last week and the comments were amazing!

What advice would you give your younger self?

This is one of those things I think about a lot.

Chances are you’ve had experiences in the last 5, 10 or 20 years that you wish you had a little more foresight with.  Good, bad, difficult, exhilarating or even mundane.  You may wish you could tell yourself to take more risks, take less risks, be courageous, be careful, love yourself more, exercise frequently, read more books – or even more specific things, like don’t get pregnant at 16 (in the case of one of my Facebook followers!) etc. Read more

RECAP: The Gorgeous Interiors in Rosieteapot Issues 1,2 & 3

I am so grateful to these women for letting us into their home.  I thought it would be quite cool to go over the homes for the last three issues of Rosieteapot as a reminder to my current readers to bookmark these women & to serve as a taster to future readers!

Charley Taylor of The Charley girl was the first interior featured in the magazine, the first person interviewed AND the first cover.  I love her eclectic taste and how she arranges her special & quirky treasures.

Here is a taste of a few of the images featured in Issue 1 of Rosieteapot Magazine: Read more

Rosieteapot Issue 3 – Come & Get it!

(should appear above in a sec)

This issue is full of gorgeous homes & interesting women!  We take a home tour of Dana’s house from House*Tweaking, Aileen’s lovely home from “At Home In Love” and Jenna’s super cute, retro apartment from “Circus of Cakes“.  And get ready for a Color-Bomb – it’s Flannery from “The Fashion Tweaker“!  If you love vintage shenanigans, you’ll love the gals at Two Lippy Ladies and we check out the sweeter side of life with Kelly from A Side of Sweet .  Our Artist, Lindsey Louise of Hello Mr Rabbit, brings a whole lot of whimsy to the table, and we check out what Nepal is like with my friend, Sarah Natac.  Oh, and a few of my recipes as per usual.  This issue is jam-packed full of goodies!

Now, I just learned that I used a few photos of Lindsey from Kait Dowling Photography – I love her Cosplay photos in particular!   Very cool.

 

 

Cupcakes, Geisha’s & Coffee – OH MY!

I actually created these fun, cupcakes / mini-muffins last year.   At the time, I just felt like making something colourful for the kids.  (“Geisha’s” in the title refers to the fabric I used as the tablecloth)

And you know what?  I could pretend that I made them from scratch, but to be honest, I just realised I used a cupcake mix at the time!!   Go on, judge me!!  MUAHAHA  (<– evil laughter) Read more

Simple Slowcooker Recipe: Corned Beef

My friend Zeb has been really getting into her Slowcooker / crockpot recently, and I just remembered I was going to share one of my favourite slowcooker recipes with her.  It occurred to me I should share it with the class!

Corned Beef is by no means the sexiest foods on the planet… in fact, it’s probably in an “Unsexiest Foods” list somewhere in Internet land!  BUT, when you cook it slowly, it can be very edible – and not just edible – good!!

It’s not just a Winter meal either – serve in Summer with a nice Coleslaw or serve in a sandwich with some mustard.  Yum yum!
