I was reading one of my favourite blogs earlier in the week and came across a FABULOUS FIND, I just had to share....
The wonderful Leanne from Sweet Style recently photographed her wonderful range of 100% natural, toxin free make up that is believe it or not all made from food! Her photography is divine and the packaging of these little beauties, OMG I just had to buy one.
LUK is the brainchild of a local Sydney lady Cindy whom is "quietly building lük beautifood into a cult beauty brand to take globally by pioneering clean, toxin-free, food active makeup and championing natural beauty. She wants nothing more than to disrupt the traditional beauty market and the definition of a ‘true beauty' ".
If you sign up to the LUK Beautifood newsletter you receive 10% off your first order PLUS shipping within Australia is free.....my little treat arrived the very next day and I am in lurve, OMG check out the fabric that it is wrapped in!!!
Do yourself a favour if you care about what you put on your lips then check out the wonderful range of lipsticks and why stop there when there is also foundation, mascaras and plenty more natural beauty products to choose from.
Oh and the website has lots of amazing wonderful recipes for clean living...told you it was a FABULOUS FIND!!!
Late Friday afternoon headed in to the city to meet John, a friend had surprised him with tickets to the theatre for his Birthday (next week), we were off to the amazing Sydney Theatre Company to see Cate Blanchett and a wonderful cast perform in "The Present" a play adapted by Chekov.
We had time for a quick drink before the play started and we unearthed the amazing "The Theatre Bar at the end of the Wharf", wow what a find, hidden away at the end of one of the old wharf's is the most incredible space with the most amazing views of Sydney....it offers a great selection of wines by the glass and enough tapas style and finger food to keep everyone happy for choice...we settled for fried cauliflower with tahini dressing and of course some thick cut fires with smoked paprika aioli...delicious!
We will definitely be back!!!
It has been some time since I wandered that part of Sydney, the Barangaroo Development is coming ahead in leaps and bounds and the entire area is changing we have put it on our list of things to do in spring would love to spend the day wandering the streets and checking out all the local bars and restaurants.
The rest of the weekend is busy, we are off to celebrate another friends Birthday tonight, then tomorrow more Birthday treats for John!!!!
Last weekend we headed off bright and early to the Sydney Markets to purchase lots of fresh fruit and vegetables...the car was filled with lots of goodies and we set off home to begin the "cook-a-thon".
Lucky we had lots of wonderful new cookbooks to inspire some tasty dishes! Gwyneth Paltrow's great book "Its All Good" was a Birthday present, "The Happy Cookbook" by Lola Berry has become a family favourite and last week I picked up "The Chef Gets Healthy" by Tobie & Geogia Puttock and we have already fallen in love with their healthy twist on a few old favourites - definitely a good find!
A yummy breakfast (or Sunday night dinner in our case).... snow pea, pea and feta salad (yummy)....raw beetroot and pine nut salad (there were no leftovers) and lots of marinated yellow peppers (and we still didn't make a dent in the box we bought)!
Healthy sweet potato muffins (divine, they are amazing hot and almost didn't make it into the lunch boxes)....ricotta pancakes which we served for dessert with a honeycomb butter....and plant of protein balls for when we need a pick me up or healthy snack!
The fridge is full, the freezer overflowing and still there are half boxes of vegetables sharing my office space, I can see I am going to have to have another cook-a-thin on my day off tomorrow...hmm back to the recipe books I go to find more delicious healthy creations!
