Love : For Love & Lemons

We are S O in love with the For Love & Lemons label, and their latest Land of Eternal Spring look-book.

The Los Angeles based line, designed by Gillian Mahin & Laura Hall, could be described as 'modern day gypsy' and features a lot of daring lace, clashing colours and prints. 

The location of the recent shoot & the chosen model (gorgeous Carola Remer) are both perfect to showcase this beautiful collection, and we can't stop looking through the gorgeous images.

We tried to pick our top 10, but it was impossible...

Sunday Funday & A Recipe

So, this blog could never be called a food blog in any way, shape or form, as we both consider a glass of red, some crackers and camembert cheese a well rounded meal .

However, I do want to share this gluten free savoury muffin recipe with you all, as it is simply delicious. I try to stay as gluten free as possible, as it just makes me feel better, but I do love my sourdough and rye breads , so I give into the 'devil' (as my sister, Zoe so fondly calls it) every now and again.

I served these muffins at the little Oscars Party I had a few weeks back, and they were a hit with all - gluten lovers included.

Sun-dried tomato & herb muffins : 

1 1/2 cups gluten free self-raising flour
1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped basil and/or spinach
1 1/2 cups finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
80g softened butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and prep a muffin tray. 
Combine dry ingredients first, then mix in the herbs/cheese & tomatoes. 
Beat (or stir!! this is what I do and it works fine) butter & eggs together and then add milk. 

Mix the wet ingredients into the other bowl and stir together. Divide the mixture evenly between each section 

Cook for 15-18 mins and serve when warm for the yummiest results!! {Makes 6-8 large muffins.} 

I have also added sweet potato and feta cheese to this recipe and that turns out delicious too. 

Last weekend we spent the entire Sunday down at the South Perth Foreshore with some lovely friends. 

There were bottles of bubble consumed, games of cricket and elastics (blast from the past, that one!!) played and a yummy BBQ prepared by our boys to eat. It was such a lovely day, and as usual, the Perth weather was on it's best behaviour.

Love : Stylish Sunnies

We love adding to our eyewear collection here at belle | beau. Today we are having a look at some of our favourite frames for this coming season.

The looks that are on trend are quite varied - from cat eye (which is proving to be a strong contender in the style stakes for the 4th year in a row!) to flat top, there is something for everyone available at the moment.

 ^^ we are both fans of the 'cat eye' shape ^^

^^ these gorgeous Mui Mui sunglasses are from 2011...
as you can see, they are still very on trend ^^

The Long Weekend

I know it is almost the weekend again, but my Long Weekend last week was too beautiful not to share with you all.

Belle Beau Lifestyle

On the Sunday, we caught up with some great friends for a bit of a tradition that we like to call 'Super Seafood Sunday'. The men go to 'hunt & gather' with the kids at the amazing local seafood shop, Seafresh Myaree, while the ladies stay home and prep (or drink champagne and chat...shhh).

We try to organise it for the middle of each school term (we are all teachers, believe it or not) and this particular time it also coincided with the Point Walter Concert which occurs down on the beautiful Attadale Foreshore.

Super Seafood Sunday has become a tradition that both Jarrod & I look forward to each term as a way to break up the routine that we seem to get into once school (& football!!) is back.
