Domestic Goddess

I've started reading 'The Undomestic Goddess' by Sophie Kinsella, and although thoroughly enjoying it (I'm a huge fan of the Shopaholic series too!) I can't help but to begin to wonder that I am all too similar to the lead character - Samantha.
Ok, so I'm definitley not a high flying lawyer who's recently lost my job, but much like Samantha I struggle to complete even some of the most menial house work tasks. Actually, now I think about it... it's more of case of 'won't do it' rather than 'can't. So after living on my own for three years, you'd think I'd be pretty competent cooking for myself. Wrong. The most complex dish I can rustle up is pasta... oh and some ready made Dolmio. 
So I've set myself the task of cooking meals from scratch.... that means no more jars, and definitely no more micowave meals!
Last night was the the first run, and so I made fajita's. It was pretty easy, and there was even some left over to take to work for my lunch today - so I'm saving money too!
So far so good!
How are you all in the kitchen?

I'll leave you with some food porn....

Goth Girls go to Givenchy

I'm definitely not a 'Goth Girl' by any stretch of the imagination..... but I'd really like one of these. 

One in Grey please....

Girl from the city

The latest issue of ASOS magazine features no other than New York socialite, Olivia Palermo, but now she's so much more than that - fashion icon, 'reality' TV star and model Olivia has only gone and landed her first British magazine cover! 

Ever since watching her on 'The City', everything about her made me dislike her. All, apart from her impeccable style that is. She always seems to look effortlessly chic, and this spread doesn't disappoint. Olivia poses in dark, muted and earthy tones - the key colour palette for next season on location in Brooklyn, which provides the perfect backdrop. She also makes Converse trainers look glamorous whilst teamed with a white shift dress! 

Love her, or hate her, I think this shoot just proves that there's much more to Olivia than just the affluent socialite portrayed on 'The City'
