Giveaway skirt finds a home!

A few weeks back I had a giveaway (my first ever! Can't believe people applied for it!) and I drew Bethany's name from the hat, and doesn't she look AWESOME in the little checked skirt:

Even better, she sent me the photo and blogged it here! CUTE STUFF! You're a total darling Bethany! You look great and I want those boots! I had a great pair of doc marten steel caps when I was little, but I wore them every day for about 5 years and left them behind in England cause they were too heavy for my luggage. CRY! I think I'll have to get another pair now that I've seen you wear them!

Just as an aside, I did an online whip around for some cheap veggie meals to have over the next few days and came up with this list! (Sorry to blog my shopping list, but I wanna update my computer now with new firefox etc, so wanna save the pages!)

Vegetable Crumble

Chickpea Curry

Soba Noodles with Spicy Tofu Peanut Sauce

Delicious Vegetable Paella

Leek and Corn-Stuffed Peppers

Yum! Can't wait to eat them all up!

Husbie and I are cooking up something big for the future soon, so we're minding our pennies and saving up dosh! We're dreaming up traveling schemes and family schemes, so hopefully they'll all come together soon.


  1. You should get a Delicious page. Then you can access your bookmarks wherever you go! It's also a "social bookmarking" page. I think they made that term up, but you know... anyway, you can go look at other people's bookmarks. You find heaps and heaps of cool stuff that way! I used to have Docs too. Super cute :op

  2. Hey, I was chatting with Mum last night and she said she had a chatsies with your Mum. Hahaha talking crafty daughters and what not! She was rather excited about it all!

  3. Eek! That's a weird synchronicity thing - I spend Sunday at a friend's place cooking once a month vegan freezer food for myself, herself and her little girls. We had such fun zooming around Harris Farm and Coles and then elbowing each other away from the stove. Having healthy veggo food in the freezer makes dinner a breeze - and we couldn't believe how much we saved! Try ratatouille, vegan spag bol and dahl. Yummie! I'll definitely be trying your recipes too. (P.S. LOVE the skirt. You'd look rockin' in docs too.)


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
