The last few weeks have been a little hard with constant migraines and feeling a little less than normal. I am thankful for the few days in between with feeling normal knowing that the pain will soon pass and normality will prevail. 

Anyhow lets get back to blogging, which I have missed so much. I have so much to share with but have taken my rest days when I have time off as the schedule of my regular blogging routine has sowed. But I am regularly sharing my style on instagram.

I am a francophile. I just love anything French and learning about their culture and anything french really. I have just purchased this book by Mireille Guiliano and I am looking forward to reading over the holiday break.

Mireille was in Australia last year, she shared a few tips for us Australian women which we should all consider.....

The famous author of 'French Women Do Not Get Fat' has shared her 'Manifesto for Australian Women.' Put simply she says enjoy a healthy lifestyle without denying yourself life's little pleasures.

1. Start each day with a real breakfast.

2. Introduce two servings of natural yoghurt as a breakfast or snack food or dessert - the protein will keep you fuller longer.

3. Enjoy milk, cheese or yoghurt every day. Many people avoid these foods because they think they are fattening - this is a mistake. Eating these foods as part of a balanced diet is not linked to weight gain.

4. Stop dieting.

5. Take the stairs and laugh more, it is good for the waistline and for the soul.

6. Never let yourself get too hungry or overeat.

7. Good food is not pretentious. Do not take yourself too seriously. and do not let recipes intimidate you - they are a guide not a formula.

8. Cooking is slimming. Love is slimming. Happiness is slimming.

9. Eat smaller portions of more things, rather than bigger amounts of less things.

10. Australian's love their coffee, so take pleasure in your morning ritual of your morning latte or cappuccino.

11. Choose and enjoy your weekend rewards, like your favourite dark chocolate rather than worrying about eating 'bad' food.

12. Explore Australia's great outdoors with regular physical movement. Choose things you can do in street clothes like a daily walk or a leisurely bike ride.

13. Avoid anything that demands too much effort for too little pleasure.

14. Eat and serve what is in season. With the Australian summer in sight, enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables aplenty.

15. Do not save the champagne for special occasions, being in good company is reason enough.

Back to school this week and time to get your style on. The school run can be daunting for us mother's. The emotional aspect of another school year starting and saying goodbye to our children as we all get back to routine of school lunches, homework, sports, after school activities and so forth. 
Your personal style is just as important as any other day on the school run, so why not make an effort to look effortlessly chic? Although my playground and drop off days are over, I enjoyed pulling my style and looks together while presenting my best self to meet and chat with teachers and parents. Getting compliments on how your style yourself is the best confidence boost ever.

Brrr it is cold outside. The temperatures are dropping significantly as the snow falls on the peaks and below. Sydney have been having really fresh cold mornings where layering can help keep the chill at bay. So many of us can be a little hesitant to layer for fear of looking bulkier than normal. This can be technically true but you can learn to layer to compliment your curves and enhance your silhouette. Personally being warm and stylish is a top priority for me.

I have always made pumpkin soup for a number of years, it is a family favourite. My step daughter called me the other day asking for how I make the soup. Really it is super easy and I have played and mixed ingredients to come up with the perfect taste.
