Max Levy Architect

Last weekend I stumbled upon the website of Max Levy, an architect based in Dallas, Texas and was immediately taken by his creativity. I discovered lots of interesting ideas while perusing his portfolio - my favourite being the watering can drainage system in the first 2 photos. How freaking cute and genius is that?!

Kim Jeffery

Kim Jeffery is a very talented and relatively new photographer (I aspire) who has a very interesting name (mine is Kim, my husband's is Jeffrey), has photographed for covet garden (one of my favourite online mags), is Canadian I think (me too!), is a huge animal lover and wanted to be a vet until she was 14 (me too!), and has a few cats (me too!). Seems like destiny that I blog about her and her pretty photos.

More than vacuum cleaners

It's Wednesday night in Australia and I'm not at home. Oh no! I'm in Sydney and I'm in a masterclass with Tetsuya Wakuda (he's been voted one of the world's most influential chefs). When we are finished learning at the master's feet we are indulging in a degustation menu at his restaurant. I am indeed a very lucky ducky :) Ooooh I wonder if duck in on the menu? Yum. Why am I here? Electrolux. Tetsuya is their ambassador and this is a fabulous, "girl can but dream" junket and I don't want to wake up. Thanks Electrolux! Oh yes, and they also do vacuum cleaners ;)
