OK, so from now on, my life will be divided into two parts:
Before Salted Caramel
After Salted Caramel.
Why did nobody alert me to this stuff before? It is truly life-changing.
And thank you to Michelle for this unnecessary but delicious present. At least I think I should thank you. The man employed to whip this bod into shape may not be so grateful. So we won't tell him. Will we.

|a Novogratz makeover, image via Apartment Therapy.|
I blogged about my obsession with 9 by Design here, last year and was beyond beside myself to receive a tip-off from Mich last week that their new series, Home by Novogratz, has hit Aussie TV screens. I know, they polarise people with their passionate but untrained approach to design, but as you know, I have no truck with pretentious interiors, so to me, they are the bomb. And yes, I still want to be Courtney's NBF, and I still have high hopes that Annebelle will have Wolfie's babies some day.
It's on Foxtel's Lifestyle Home channel at excruciatingly random times, so check your guides. YAY!

|Mick and Robin's charming (and oddly efficient) country cooker|
I know I bang on about wanting to move to the country (sorry Jem, Belle and Al), but I cannot deny the calm that descends upon me when I hit the road out of town. Today was no diff. The hairy assistant and I took off to the in-laws place at sparrows to do a very special shoot for a gorgeous new cookbook, and we had a ball. Chippy snacks for me, Schmackos for him, singing out loud to the radio, the wind in our hair...
Dougal promptly fell in love with Zoe, the photographer and insisted in assisting her instead of me.

And now we are home, a little wistful. And googling country properties. And dreaming.

|The Super Cool - photo by the lovely Marsha Golemac|
Melbourne's coolest pop-up, by name and nature, is the fab The Super Cool. Its fourth (or fifth maybe?) incarnation is happening right now in the loading bay behind the new Great Dane store in Johnston Street Fitzroy. The Super Cools will also be at the next Finders Keepers market - details below.
Annebelle and I popped into Fitzroy last weekend and met the lovely Kate, and tried very hard to restrain ourselves from buying everything there. I couldn't resist the gorgeous 'Bonjour' pennant though, and it now hangs at my in-laws place in the country - below!
Look out for some more Super Cool wares in my Savvy Shopper page running in the Sunday Age M mag this coming weekend.
Great Dane dates & details -
Thur - Sun (currently until 20 May - shut week of 19-22 April)
Thur - Sat 10am - 4pm
Sundays - 11am - 4pm
The Finders Keepers dates & details -

My first Melbourne home spread ran yesterday - it belongs to the very chic Sarah Hook, importer of divine French and Belgian furniture and accessories for her store, Franque. Here is a peek. Next Sunday you can see the incredibly stylish home of a young Melbourne interior design wonder-girl. Don't miss it!
