I've become a steadfast fan of Tina Bester Queen of Tarts. I got her book Bake last year, and I'm very keen to acquire her other recipe books. I made these leek & goat's cheese parcels for a friends Christmas party in December. They lasted I think 2 mins. I got the recipe from her book Bake. I'm super impressed by her recipes. I've only made these parcels and her cupcakes so far. Her ingredients are easy to come by; the recipes are simple to follow and the end result is delicious! I'm also a sucker for good photography, which combined with the layout is just gorgeous.

I popped in at the local Hospice shop and spotted this vintage Italian dress for R38. Not the best pic I know - apologies it was late! I paid R19 for it as they were having a half price sale! Crazy! It still has its rather large, original label on it of an Italian gondola. I don't know when I will use it but I had to rescue this dusky pink dress. I couldn't believe my luck when I tried it on and it fitted me. It reminds me of a dress you would wear if you were to dance with Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire!
