which consists of mainly food-related nonsense...

Some random snaps from my week so far - truly indicative of just how much my weeks revolve around food and eating

Cheat's breakfast! I know its not the healthiest brekky food because it doe shave added flavour and some sugar, but hey, it is porridge! And its super yummy

Treated myself to a soy chai with honey today - muchly deserved, if I do say so myself

Inspired by the lovely Hannah, I have been embracing quinoa salads for lunch this week - this particular combo involved chickpeas, goats milk fetta, fresh peas and rocket

I was in Sydney for a morning meeting yesterday, and they were selling my favourite cupcakes in the David Jones Food Hall - sold!

Nom nom nom

After seeing a couple of reviews on the new White Wings Home Style Creamies by some lovely bloggers, I had to jump on the bandwagon and try me some. People, they are every bit as amazing as I was led to believe! I love the passionfruit creamies, and the jam and cream ones are divine!

And purely for your amoooosement - a snap of me in my ballet-going gear (yep, I wear uggs to ballet!) Its been 4 weeks so far and I am absolutely loving it!

Happy almost-weekend!


  1. My gosh. I looooove that porridge! tis amazing! Nom nom. I've also been wanting to try those Creamies, I thought they looked amazing! I'll have to get some. Glad to hear youre loving ballet! :) xx

  2. Those cupcakes look amazing!! I'm glad you're enjoying your return to ballet. Going back to dancing is the best decision I've made this year. :-)

  3. Uggs to ballet means you are a true athlete :)

  4. The chickpea goats cheese salad looks delicious, totally copying!! I love making chickpea salads for lunch but am a bit bored of my usual recipe x

  5. Thanks for the mention Cate, quinoa salads are the best! Yours looks so good, a lot more gourmet than mine, especially with the feta! I treated myself to a soy chai yesterday too!! It was a bit too sweet, but a nice change from my regular coffee :) :)

  6. Oh Cate! I love your ballet posts. even just seeing the gear makes me happy :) I would love a soy chai with honey right now. & your quinoa salad looks divine. Goats cheese/feta is the best salad addition. ever. Happy Friday!

  7. I had a soy latte for the first time EVER the other day and LOVED it!!!

    Totally surprised myself.


  8. Ok, will everyone stop telling me about those creamies? I'm just going to have to try them, which given I have a house full of biscuits from Argentina isn't going to help my waistline at all!

    Love the uggs, you are definitely a real dancer. I always wear uggs to class in winter, my poor feet get strapped into high heel dance shoes so I might as well be nice to them on the way there.

  9. what do the oats taste like?
    they taunt me from the shelves of the supermarket!


  10. Yay! So glad you like the jam creamies!! I adore them - so yummy.

  11. I know dancing was one of your 30 things to do before you are 30, and another was to incorporate yoga into your daily life.
    I go to a yoga class once or twice a week, and wanted to do the same, and found about an iphone app called All-in yoga, that is cheap, and has LOTS of programs built in. I don't know what level you are at, and you may be able to work out your own daily programs, but maybe check it out.
    PS-I wear my pink ugs to yoga! Love!

  12. Sparkle cupcakes are so yummy! I only tried them for the first time a few weeks ago.
