Each season, adidas x Opening Ceremony take on two sports…this time, they explore basketball and rock climbing, mixing sportswear shapes with rad prints and colours. The collaboration brings a new energy to the traditional sportswear scene which is ordinarily dominated by solid colours and very little print. I love the vitality that this collection brings to fashion…it makes me want to shoot some hoops or scale a vertical cliff. But not right now…maybe tomorrow!

SA Masterchef & macarons

My resolve has been strengthened to give macaron-making a whirl after last nights episode of SA Masterchef which involved a complicated but exquisite dessert featuring a Liquorice Macaroon with Litchi Panna Cotta. Yum! These little French bites of deliciousness are my youngest son’s favourite treat at our local patisserie, Cassis, and he often has a tough time choosing which flavour to select. One of his preferred is the zesty lemon and this macaron recipe, along with beautifully styled shots by photographer Jasmine Nicole, caught my eye recently…it’s so inspiring, maybe I’ll give it a try!
