My inspiration nest

A home is so very important. I am such a home-unit, and love to nest. Here is a little peek inside where I spend lots of my days. In Winter, I love sitting on the couch with a pot of chai and reading and in Summer with all the windows open I burn incense and have bright bunches of flowers.

I also shot the look book for my creations, Cleopatra’s Bling in the apartment.

A special birthday in Paris

in Australia, my birthday falls in Summer so I am still not quite used to the idea of a cold birthday. It never quite feels like I remember it should. Nonetheless I had a lovely day and was very spoilt by my close friends, my J and my family despite them being far. (As soon as the sun comes out here and the temperature rises by about 15 degrees I’ll be able to show you my to-die-for silk skirt my parents got me in India).

J was cheeky and organised me a surprise party with my besties last night. And he revealed his big secret: We are going to Rihanna. I know, I know, I’m a diva… but I won’t hide the fact that I adore Rihanna and I am sure the concert will be incredible! It’s in June. Eep!

My adorable friend Meg, who features very frequently on my blog and vice verca as we are always loitering around together, gave me two very precious gifts. Below, a container for my herbes de Provence and as she is from Denver, a native American dream catcher which I will put photos up of very soon. She posted wonderful photos of my birthday here.

blueberry pancakes and fried pears

blueberry pancakes and fried pears

Meg came around for a birthday breakfast yesterday and I made us my latest recipe: egg-free, almond meal blueberry pancakes with fried pears. If I can say so myself, they are very delicious. Here is the recipe:

1 cup of plain flour
1 cup of almond meal
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of water
2 cups of whole milk
5 tablespoons of melted butter (or ghee which is clarified butter and much better for you)

How to:
Mix the dry ingredients
Add milk, water, and vanilla. Whisk together until just combined. Be careful not to over mix – it should still be slightly lumpy. Set aside to rest for a few minutes.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. While pan is heating, add butter. As soon as the butter is melted, add melted butter to pancake batter.
Return pan to stove and stir butter into batter.
Cook until bubbles form on the surface. Add the blueberries after putting the mixture in the fry pan. Carefully flip pancakes with turner/spatula and cook until golden brown.

Serve with fried slices of pear and a drizzle of honey. YUM!
