Sunday Selections

April 27, 2014

This past week was a short one and the weekend came around pretty quickly again. I hope you had a lovely one. Aren’t these tulips at Topkapi Palace in Istanbul gorgeous?

Tulips, Istanbul

WATCH: I have a confession to make and I’m a little embarrassed about it. I’ve started watching an American reality TV show (okay, warning signs already, I know) and I’m a little bit hooked. It’s called ‘Naked and Afraid’. Yes, really. The title pretty much summarises the content of the show: a man and a woman, both of whom are stark naked and also strangers, are dropped deep into the wilderness, be it the jungle or desert, and must survive for 21 days, soon enough becoming quite afraid. It’s bad but oh so good.

READ: Aren’t these photos of Istanbul on Nicole Warne’s blog, ‘Gary Pepper’ just stunning? Take me back!

COOK: I missed my Mum’s ANZAC biscuits this year! She makes the best bikkies. I have her treasured recipe somewhere over here in Germany I know. Where I’ve stashed it is another question.

MAKE: If you haven’t gathered from my Instagram already, I’m a little obsessed with spring blooms at the moment. Don’t you just love this idea for transforming old light bulbs into cute little vases?

DREAM BUY: One day I would just love to visit Africa, go on safari and stay in a luxury tented camp, just like this one in the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa. Rates from $1,365 per person, per night.

BUDGET BUY: All the new season spring clothing has now filled the stores and I’m desperate to do a spot of shopping. How cute is this top from & Other Stories?

GO: Ben and I made a pretty good deal together this year. Instead of physical, concrete birthday presents, we would give each other the gift of travel for our birthdays. His birthday gift to me was a weekend in Istanbul. Yesterday I booked his birthday getaway: a weekend in Rome in June! Best idea ever.
