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’”

The Future is Female, a short history of a saying. “The future is female” is a phrase that was used by Clinton supporters during Hillary Clinton’s 2016 run for the US presidency. However, the roots of the phrase go back some way to 1975 and come out of a very different source. In 1972, NYC first women’s bookstore, Labyris, opened. The founders wanted  the space to be “a hub not just for literature by women, but activism for them.”   The bookstore was more than a…Continue Reading “The Future is Female”

  So happy to have One Sunday ethical tween clothing on the Child Magazine Blog. Beautifully written by Karen Miles and shot by Bron Bates. Here is the article: I ugly cried for two hours last month watching The True Cost documentary. (Film synopsis: there’s a messed up farming and manufacturing system in place that’s keeping garment workers in poverty so some companies can sell us another pair of $20 jeans we don’t need.) My upset led me to write Fast Fashion, the lead story…Continue Reading “Child Magazine”

Family favourite, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, is still my go-to movie when I need a lift. The fact that is weighs in with a 12 years plus rating could possibly the best family movie of all time, provided your children are in the older tween bracket, if in doubt see the bbfc’s parent rating here.  This film is beautifully surreal, fabulously stylised and just look at that colour! Oh and did I mention an all-star cast including a few person favourites of mine, Bill Murray,…Continue Reading “Moonrise Kingdom – family favourite”
