  • Whiskey? Check. Salted caramel? Check. Now in milkshake form – hand me a straw!
  • I was always a Jane girl myself. I need to read this soon.
  • Expressing gratitude can shift your outlook on life. Another on my must read list.
  • Frozen Hot Chocolate – the best of both worlds!
  • Tacos that combine two of my favourite food cultures? Yes please!
  • I’m for brownies. And these brownies are just the cherry on top.
  • Food is culture, and we need to save some of the tastes of the past so we don’t lose important touchstones.
  • The perfect peak-of-summer cake with so many delicate flavours working in harmony.
  • Chris and I love watching ‘The Strain’ (I spend most of my time with my face hidden, but it’s a good show) so I was fascinated by this exploration of the science behind Del Toros vampires.
  • We’re counting down the weeks until we leave for the USA and looking for restaurant recommendations for the places we are visiting – thanks to Sweetest Menu we’ve got Washington D.C. covered!
  • We’ve loved learning about Uranium in this fascinating 3-part documentary: Twisting the Dragon’s Tail.
  • One of my favourite authors (she spins original fairytale/historical fiction tales) has just released her newest book – this is my plane-read pick!

That’s it for me! What have you found entrancing on the web lately dear readers?

Thoroughly Nourished Finds.

Our internet has been non-existent at home (insert sad face) and for two people who live on the internet like Chris and I do, this has been tragic. We’ve actually had to watch free-to-air television (cue re-runs of M*A*S*H* and too many variations of COPS) and talk to each other, oh and get on with that unpacking thing…. So in the precious moments of data usage I allow myself on my phone every night (a girl has to have her Pinterest time y’all) these are the things that have caught my eye, heart, and imagination.



And that’s all folks! What’s been capturing your interest on the interwebs lately?

These are sensible enough for walking, but shiny enough to let you know it’s PARTY TIME!

I need more polka dots in my life. Obvi.

I’ve told you before: I’m scared of going to prison (for what? Crimes of the crumb?) but fascinating by ‘stories from the inside‘.

Women in science! I can’t wait to read this new book highlighting 52 amazing lady scientists – rock those lab coats my brainy sisters!

Nourished Finds – Midweek Conversation Starters

There are so many fascinating points of view out there, and everyone has a story to tell or an opinion to share. Let’s get deep, let’s talk about everything. Here are some links that have been conversation starters for me lately.


Get the conversation flowing:

Chris, babe, you know I love you, and you just have to accept that Stanley Tucci will always have a special little piece of my heart. (Who would you choose as your celebrity boyfriend? Obviously Stanley is already taken.)

Read this article about Wild and Cheryl Strayed. The best review/deconstruction I have come across. I can’t believe I have just started reading Wild!

I am so fortunate that I have found the one I am head-over-heels for, but this study has some interesting points on what makes love happen when you deliberately choose to fall in love with someone. And, here are the questions that they asked each other. Dinner discussion points indeed!

National Geographic explores the evolution of our diets, and the fact that eating ‘like a caveman’ can mean so many different things depending on where you make your home. Fascinating stuff. (Also, that paleo doughnut probably isn’t anything like what our ancestors ate…)

It’s not about what you look like in the mirror – an appearance-driven diet can be dangerous, and distract us from our own inner cues for hunger and satiety, which may have long-term effects.

Notorious RBG for Chanel, Mo’Ne Davis for Céline. – yes please fashion industry!

Hacks for better homemade fries a.k.a. ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People 2.0’

22 inspiring Australian women! Politicians, atheletes, movie stars – extraordinary ladies from Down Under!
