Day in the life: Bits + bobs from the past few days

Did I mention that after successfully installing our louvres, Mr Tonic went and made a 6 hour slow roasted pork shoulder with roast veggies for dinner on Saturday night?

That thing was enormous - let's just say it was pork 7 ways in the Tonic household this week...

On Sunday afternoon, it was muffin making with Mini-Tonic. Who donned a fetching lilac fairy dress for the occasion:

I used a recipe (below) from the Marie Claire "Seasonal Kitchen" cookbook, which is one of the few of my cookbooks that isn't packed away! And yes. They were gooood. And they had yoghurt in them, which I rather enjoyed.

Fresh copies of July Marie Claire & Vogue:

Which brings me to this morning - A frothy latte in my new Kit cosmetics (they do a mean bronzer, ladies!) "keep cup":

Today is beautiful and warm in Sydney - especially for the second day of Winter - Twenty degrees! Heaven. The threads? Subtitled stripey top / Bassike tee / Nudie jeans / Jerome Dreyfuss bag.

Happy "Hump Day" Tonic-ettes! PS If you haven't already, don't forget to check out the Spring 2011 issue of gorgeous online mag, Anthology!


  1. Your husband sounds like superman! Tell me he has some faults because I'm starting to get jealous.
    Oh and love the stripey top.

  2. Wonderful to see Mini Tonic is Better and the Pork looks Devine :)

  5. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?

    take a look when I get home. I'm amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I'm not even using WIFI,
    just 3G .. Anyways, great site!

    My web site: beta.truck.net

  7. Hello would you mind letting me know which web host you're working with? I've
    loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog
    loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web
    hosting provider at a fair price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

  9. When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Appreciate it!

  10. I'm not sure why but this site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I'll
    check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  11. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

    email. I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

  13. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a
    few of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I
    think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

  14. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
