audrey.








Could fashion be taking a few cues from Miss Hepburn? With all these micro trends popping up on the runway, in street style, and even on the red carpet, could it be that Audrey's style is more relevant than ever before? 


I most definitely think so.

a sneak peek.


I hate not being able to blog as regularly as I'd like to. In fact, it grates my nerves. This week has dashed past me at such high speed I have barely been able to spend any leisurely time by my computer. Anyway - I thought I'd sneak a quick post to let you know what I have in store for my blog tomorrow.

art nouveau AMAZE.



I thought I would do a quick post on the la-la-lovely Camilla Belle at this year's Met Ball. I've always been so envious of her radiant complexion - and I just LOVE how her makeup artist played up her best features for the event (Just look at those brows!) The carefully selected colour palette heightened the drama that was created by her Art Nouveau-inspired Ralph Lauren Collection gown - have you ever seen such harmony?! Although a lot of the stars donned a berry lip, I don't think anyone quite rocked it like Camilla did.

recipe: cayenne pepper and cheese biscuits



I've been dying to show off this cute cookie stamp that was a gift from my best friend Catrina. It's a subtle way of telling people, "Yes indeed, I made these amazeballs biscuits myself!" 

The great thing about this savoury biscuit recipe is that you are bound to have all the ingredients in your kitchen already - I mean, you must be weird if you have no cheese in the fridge, or no cumin powder or cayenne pepper at hand. (Essentials, hello!)

So go ahead, make these - I can guarantee they're fail-proof.

Cayenne pepper and cheese biscuits

Ingredients:

250g butter or margarine
500ml (2 cups) grated mature cheddar cheese
500ml (2 cups) cake flour
2ml cayenne pepper (adjust according to personal taste)
2ml salt
2ml cumin powder
2ml dried thyme or rosemary

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Combine butter and cheese, mixing well.
2. Add sifted flour, cayenne pepper, salt, cumin powder and thyme/rosemary.
3. Roll dough into balls the size of a walnut.
4. Press down gently (flattening the balls) onto a baking sheet.
5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until light brown.
6. Cool before removing from the baking sheet with an egg lifter. 

To serve: Eat as is or sandwich two biscuits together with cream cheese or pate.

So-En editorial





Can't take my eyes off this editorial in Japanese magazine So-En (May 2012 issue). Whoa. The detail! Imagination is more important than knowledge...
