1000 recycled doors

Wow, how amazing is this installation by  Choi Jeong Hwa, a South Korean artist/ art director/ architect/ furniture designer & event planner. He transformed a 10 story building into a bright and extraordinary work of art using 1000 abandoned doors! What a great way of  up – cycling scrap and dumped objects and what a cool way to re- think art!

Delicious recipes from the Vegan Stoner

I came across a wonderful website today full of yummy vegan recipes! The Vegan Stoner was created under the premise that vegan cooking can be made without extensive ingredient lists and involved recipes. The recipes are super simple and are beautifully illustrated, making the recipes even more enticing to cook!

I found a couple of favourites which I have posted bellow! Check it out and get creative in the kitchen!!

Summer Loving!

Summer, It is the best time of the year! I love long summer days….. my perfect summer day would be spent having a lazy picnic under a tree by a cool river, or by relaxing in a hammock whilst reading a good book and sipping on some freshly crushed lemonade! What is your idea of a perfect summers day?
