Shani Jane
London
I'm 28 years old from the beautiful Island of the Long White Cloud, aka. New Zealand. I'm living the life as a Nanny abroad in London.
Interests: I get my chuckles from the two little nuggets I look after, I get thrills from driving quickly through giant puddles and my tears from missing my family. In a nutshell though, I love my boyfriend, crochet doillies, silicone cupcake trays, red wine, exploring the globe on a budget and being lost in vintage market.

Happy 2013 friendly faces! It's been almost three months of being wild and free me! Which in turn has meant zero blogging. An incredible solo journey through India followed by precious family time in sunny Australia... My material life was packed into 17 cartons, shipped from London to Melbourne. It's... Continue reading

I've been a little bit busy, just moving to the other side of the world in two weeks. That's all. Everyone loves a bit of change and busying from time to time... It's refreshing! But I one thing I am trying to make time for is Halloween! I love to... Continue reading

Is how I would describe this latest collection, The Death from Aussie lingere designer, Hopeless. Hopeless created a two part sequence for this collection, Part I is very death-like with haunting shots, while Part II is definitely softer. My fav pieces feature more in the latter. But it's hard not... Continue reading

Must get myself some metallic golf fabric to create myself a clutch or make-up bag like this one!

I was pretty stoked (and scared) when Ruby's mum said that I could take the reigns for her 8th birthday cupcakes - Ruby had opted for birthday cupcakes rather than one big mamma. The last time I put my hand up for birthday cake duty it was a distaster! I... Continue reading

I am pretty sure I have eaten my way through most of South East Asia! Green curry in Thailand, lap laos in Laos, gado gado in Indonesia, roti canai in Malaysia and springs rolls in Vietnam. I absolutey live off the street vendor food when I am traveling. I don't... Continue reading

Those who know me will know that I haven't quite been the one to 'settle'. I have preferred the life of a meandering gypsy, frolicking untouched fields. Boredom of familiar surroundings and routine generally kicks in within the 18 month mark and I set off in search of new horizons.... Continue reading

Me a name I call myself - a really shit singer! Yip, baking bread has sent me to crazy town! I don't normally sing, it doesn't benefit anyone. Baking bread (rolls) is quite simply put - ridiculously satisfying. Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to start...... Continue reading

Last Friday I noticed a ridiculous overflow of blackberries in our garden! Fin and I were playing basketball when we lost the ball into the depths of stinging nettle and blackberry bushes... While desperately trying to figure out how we could reach the ball we spotted hunderds of ripened blackberries!... Continue reading

This quote is brilliant, has a real 'oomf' behind it. I love the idea of text wall art. Putting ideas with personal meanings behind them give us constant reminders of where we want to be or want to be going! Great tutorial x

Does everyone agree with me when I say that a chewy cookie is far more satisfying than a crunchy one? Unless it is a gingernut being dunked in a cup of tea perhaps. Packed lunches were on the menu for Ruby this week, so I set off in the kitchen... Continue reading

London, oh lovely London is full of wonderful surprises! I'm not entirely sure why it has taken me approximately five years to find this wee gem. But better late than never right, especially on such a cracking Summers day! This little slice of paradise is the Ladies Pond, hidden amongst... Continue reading
