Powder Room Renovation (Before & After)

For those of you who follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram, you would know Dad was recently here in Sydney - in fact he stayed with us for 5 weeks! Dad flew all the way from France to help us with the home renovations. I'm very fortunate to have a very handy father and I'm grateful for all the hard work he has done during his stay. My home is finally starting to come together and I'm really liking the end result! The powder room (toilet) has now become my third favourite room since we renovated the living room and the kitchen. In only a week, we managed to create a bright modern look that now fits with the rest of the house. Check out the before & after photos and let me know what you think in the comment section!

The total cost of the powder room renovation was $1,400.

Christmas Cocktail (Vodka, Mint, Cranberry)

December is one of my favourite months of the year. It's also the perfect time of year for sharing a festive (pre-) Christmas cocktail. The holiday season is filled with parties and this red and green cocktail is perfect for adding to the spirit of Christmas and other holiday celebrations. To make my own version of a Christmas cocktail, I simply used Vodka, mint and cranberry juice, with a dash of lime juice. You may not know but the purer the vodka, the better it blends with other aromas. Hence why Absolut Vodka is a good choice to enhance the taste of your favourite cocktail.

Swiss Cheese, Bacon and Olive Bread

There's nothing quite like warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven home-baked bread. This warm Swiss Cheese, Bacon and Olive Bread makes the ideal savoury snack or appetizer. In France, we do love to nibble on this rich bread for 'aperitif' with a glass of white wine. The bread can also be served with a side of salad for lunch (or dinner) - the nutritional value of a slice of this bread is quite similar to a slice of quiche. The Swiss cheese and bacon make this bread recipe extra tasty and irresistible.
