Market Chatting

I am a self-confessed Market lover. I love car boot sales and bric-a-brac, I love food markets, I love vintage clothes markets and if there aren't any markets on? Well you will likely find me in an op-shop or a quirky cafe trying to get my fix!

Adelaide has a bit of an up and coming market scene with the Fishermen's Wharf Market, the Brighton Car Boot Sale, Adelaide Night Market, Dapper Market and Gillies Street Market just to name a few!

Today I would like to discuss a relatively new kid on the block

The Market Shed
What: Produce and food market emphasising certified organic, sustainable and local produce.
Where: 1 Holland Street (City), Adelaide, South Australia 5000 (behind Gilbert St IGA)
When: Sunday 9 - 2

Founded in August of 2013 it has built up an incredible following in just months. The Market Shed is a food lovers heaven and a people watchers dream. It is a hub of people who share an interest in healthy lifestyle, sustainability, organic produce but most of all food!

I confess that one short blog post is hardly enough to do justice to the energy, vibrancy and diversity of the Market Shed, but read on to get a glimpse!

Party Preparation Two - Those Delightful Details

This post is the second following after my post on party drinks here. And here I will be discussing the nitty gritty of a party (using examples from my 21st). I am no expert in the matter of party preparation but perhaps my thought processes could be useful!

To my mind the little details are what make something special, and translating this into a party situation is no different! Get ready for me gushing about fairy lights, serviettes, glasses, cushions, candles and general craziness!

Pumpkin, Rosemary and Feta Loaf Recipe

So the other day my Dad brought home this amazing piece of Pumpkin and Feta bread from a market. Because it was so expensive he could only justify buying the one piece, BUT he had hatched a cunning plan!

Feeling like detectives we slaved away studying this Pumpkin bread. So read on if you would like to find out how we made our version of this tasty treat!

Mid-Monday Song Lovin'

Monday's can be hectic and after the fun of the weekend they tend towards being an annoying reality check - at least mine are like that!

Here is my mid-monday chillout song for this week.

Miss Fancy Pants

These gorgeous teal silk pants were love at first sight for me. Thrifted from a local market they are elegant, modern, flattering and they feel just as daring and bold a choice for me today as I imagine they were when they were new. I'm sure they're not every girls cup of tea but when I put them on I feel so floaty and effortless that this doesn't bother me at all.

The Ultimate (Heathly) Choc, Nut Smoothie

Okay, okay. Vegetable ingredients. Health fad alert. I know what you're thinking. Honestly though, give this a chance and you won't regret it (hopefully).

I have always been a light eater when it comes to breakfast and this smoothie tastes awesome! So without further ado; my favourite healthy breakfast smoothie!

Pencil me in

This elegant little outfit is something I threw together the other day when the phrase 'all dressed up with nowhere to go' was given new life. If I were to give it a name I might call it a 'Work Drinks' outfit (Pity I don't have an office from which to go to post work drinks). 

This is an outfit I could see suiting those elegant ladies (probably in their 20s, 30s or 40s) who just want to add a little bit of youth into their everyday look.
