The Power of One, is it really so appealing? I have this little group, a group of other creatives and we meet from time to time to exchange and discuss ideas. We talk about our woes, our highs and our lows. Mostly we offer support and provide a sounding board to each other.  I have been working on my own for the past nine years, from a studio at my house in the burbs. Truth is I wouldn’t change it for the world but its…Continue Reading “The power of one?”

I should point out that when I made up this recipe on holiday in a hilltown in Umbria back in 2001 I was so proud of it I could burst. I have since found out that lots of people had trod the path of the zucchini fritter prior to me! So the back story. We were on holiday in Italy with friends and two nine-month-olds. It should have been perfect and it sort of was apart from the fact the infinity pool was subzero in…Continue Reading “Henrietta’s zucchini fritters – Greens for teens and tweens continued”

It is important that the cabbage…Continue Reading “Shaved cabbage and brussel sprout salad – greens for tween and teens continued”

Chargrilled broccoli with chickpeas, almonds, lemon and chilli Ok so I know what you are thinking but trust me, I haven’t met a tween/teen who doesn’t hoover this up. And if the worst comes to the worst there will always be leftovers for your lunch tomorrow, for this reason, it is worth holding off on the squeeze of lemon until you are about to eat it, as it will keep longer.   Ingredients: 2 heads (1kg) broccoli, cut into florets 6 tbsp extra virgin olive…Continue Reading “Recipe One: Greens for tweens and teens”

Films are possibly the most powerful medium of our time. A film can excite and inspire, it can make you angry and make you laugh and cry, it can frighten and persuade, it can make you fall in love and it can make you hate and it may just change your life. Often it’s the films of your childhood that determine our taste in film, I grew up on a diet of historical romance, my favourite films being Out of Africa, A Room with a View and…Continue Reading “The essential list: don’t leave your​ childhood without these films”

Getting green food into kids can be challenging, in my own childhood I struggled with veggies, anything really broccoli, wilted spinach, those little yellow things we called squash, eggplant the list goes on.  The dinner times of my youth were a mixture of pleasure and pain, pleasure because our family ate together at the table and chatted and laughed and shared our days (I LOVE my family and I LOVED us all being together even more) and pain because my mother was an exceptionally healthy…Continue Reading “Greens for tweens and teens”

Ladies we need to talk. The other day I was chewing the fat with some girlfriends talking about the important stuff in life, kids, holidays, food… the usual and then our conversation turned to skin and more specifically the state of our skin (deep winter in Australia at the moment, so think dry, scratchy skin). After a compare and contrast on the state of our own skin, the conversation turned to friends with good skin and the following was said… ‘she has great skin and she…Continue Reading “she doesn’t even eat avocado​!”

  So it’s the first Monday in May and we know what that means, the Met Gala, colloquially referred to as ‘fashion’s biggest night out’. Interestingly not such a ‘big night out’ for the guests, some of whom have turned their backs on this big corporate mammoth, dishing on its awkwardness and how tiresome it has become.  With tickets for the dinner, hosted by Conde Nast’s Anna Wintour, sitting at $30,000 to $50,000 per ticket the ball raises more than $12 million for the Metropolitan…Continue Reading “Marvellous creations at The Met Gala 2018”

Children are curious little souls and ones that I certainly don’t begin to understand and would never presume to second guess. My husband and I like to travel and those that follow One Sunday on Instagram may be aware of this. We are quite fortunate in that we can jet off from time to time to some rather swanky destinations. This is not, I hasten to add because of any financial contribution on my behalf but rather through the fact that I married a super…Continue Reading “Travelling with kids and why sometimes you should leave them at home.”

‘You’re terrible Muriel’, how the STC’s Muriel’s Wedding the Musical stacks up. Everyone loves a wedding. Further to our previous article on good old fashioned family viewing here is one wedding not one to be missed. Muriel’s Wedding the film is a hard act to follow.  The Sydney Theatre Company’s Muriel’s Wedding the Musical has achieved quite possibly the unachievable. MOVE OVER PRISCILLA! Muriel is a story for anyone who has ever felt ugly, outcast, downtrodden or hard done by, so automatically, a strong following…Continue Reading “‘You’re terrible Muriel’”
