Interview with Fashion Designer: Matcho Suba

Hello there! You may (or may not have) noticed I've been a little M.I.A lately. Well you can blame all of that on my final semester of uni! I'm hard pressed to do anything other than uni work but I may be doing a little extra design work on the side this month, you can expect to hear all about that soon!

You may remember I was doing an internship with the fashion designer, Matcho Suba, of Project Runway Australia fame. At uni we had an assignment where we had to interview someone in the industry and I thought "hey, why not Matcho?" and thus, my interview was born. I received a high distinction for it so I'm happy but just remember, I'm studying fashion design, not journalism!

You can see more of Matcho's work here!

Eating From the Pantry Challenge

So this week I have set myself a challenge- to eat from the pantry. This means I have a limited budget to work with for groceries (only buying milk, bread, eggs plus fruit and vege on special)
I've seen many other bloggers and friends do the same thing and thought it was about time I joined in. While I will be eating out of the pantry, I will also be buying fruit and vege that is in season to make sure I am still receiving nutritionally beneficial food. 

I first took a tally of what was in my pantry- brown rice, wholemeal cous cous, packet soups, pasta, tins of tuna and chicken. 

I also had some leftover mince in my freezer which I will be pairing with the pantry staple, lentils, to bulk it out and get two meals out of it. 

I'm not saying my meal plan is delicious sounding but I am going to try my best! 

Have you ever done/thought about doing the pantry challenge? Will you be joining me? 
If you have an tips for this challenge or how to reduce grocery bills (in Australia so without coupons!) I would love to hear them!

Strawberry & Blueberry Crumble

If you have a look at my last few posts you'll probably notice one thing- my massive sweet tooth. Nothing is more appealing to me than all that sweet, sinful goodness and wow, if you only saw my Dessert board on Pinterest! Well I have to do something to contain the sugar fiend within me so I usually turn to fruit (or dark chocolate!)

I figure, if I'm going to eat sugar it had better be beneficial to me in some way! In comes the simple fruit crumble. So simple to assemble, so versatile in flavours! Some people like to load their crumbles up with more sugar but really, they don't need it. 

Blueberries and strawberries are just like a beautiful match made in heaven- they're like one of those really hot couples that make you jealous of how good they look together, I mean come on!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oats

For the past few weeks, I've managed to meal prep my lunches. However, waking up at 6:30am every day is really doing my head in and I tend to just skip breakfast or grab a yoghurt on the go. Not this week! This week I planned ahead and made a batch of my favourite oats to have on the way to uni. It seems really decadent to have chocolate for breakfast, but I promise you-these are healthy. There's only a few ingredients and you can tweak it at your will. Seriously though, the dates are mandatory! It's just not the same without them. 
These oats are perfect cold or hot!

Week 1 & 2 of Clean Eating Challenge

If you've been following me on Instagram, you'll know that I've started back at uni and have also started an internship! I'm currently interning with Matcho Suba (of Project Runway fame) over Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, all while completing my final collection for uni (in which I have more garments to make than weeks to make them...). Me being me, I also decided to take part of an online 12 week challenge to get fit and healthy, as I felt that after last semester I had really let things lax.

I thought I'd show you what has been my first weeks of a clean eating lifestyle!
