I don't know if there are any pampoenspook readers left out there, but I am back. Kind of. The past week was horrible, to say the least, but I figured that blogging might help distract me from my broken heart.

So, with Christmas approaching, I am on the lookout for a fun, festive album to play around the clock to lift my spirits. A Very She & Him Christmas sounds like it could be perfect.

yum yum

I'm still not feeling wonderful and the very thought of food makes me feel ill, but I just had to share this recipe I came across today. Vegan banana ice cream! Which is actually just frozen chunks of banana blended smoothly. I love bananas, so I'm sure I'll love this.

excuse and inspiration

I'm being a very bad blogger, but I do have an excuse - loads of work and not feeling great lately. Blogging may continue to be slow for the next week or two, but I promise that it will return to its normal pace ASAP.

Anyway, here's the inspiration behind the previous blog post. How awesome is the artwork above the bed and all that red?

mooi rooi

I still have some work to do tonight, but I am ignoring it and instead looking at pretty prints with red as a focal colour. They would lovely above one's bed, don't you think?

good song guys

I've never really liked local band The Dirty Skirts, but I saw this video on TV the other day (after watching my friend Janine, who is editor of Seventeen magazine, being interviewed) and it's been in my head ever since.

the spot

This looks like the ultimate spot for contemplation, relaxation, and reading. Adore everything about it.

mushy cheesy goodness

I do so enjoy a good grilled cheese sandwich. Wouldn't mind one right now. This mushroom croque monsieur looks so yum. Minus the ham, of course. Let's make this when I come visit next month, okay Mooky?
