Well, I haven't just been locking myself in the library. (But talking of libraries, I'm going to go to the State tomorrow, for the first time since Year 12! And this time I won't be there to
surrepticiously check out boys study for my Modern history exam, so a lot has changed.)
I had an incredibly productive Saturday (I was hitting the uni email before 9am! BEFORE NINE AM!) and worked into the mix of house-cleaning, desk-drawer-emptying, article-downloading and colleague-emailing was a trip to Eveleigh Markets. I found: ornamental cabbage flowers in gelato shades of lilac and cream and soft green; smoked trout as flavoursome as in Canada (big call); rye spelt bread; Jerusalem artichokes (finally back in season!! The storeholder and I had a moment of recognition over my joy at this); organic eggs and spinach and apples and everything; and the beautiful Kate who was doing some research for a new book.
If you love food (and really, who doesn't?) and you love blogs, you should click your way to The Kitchen Inc. and let Kate woo you with her incredible photos and her lush recipes. Here's a photo she took of me- check out how sweet the flowers are!
This here blog was also mentioned in a couple of mags this month- if you're a new reader, well hi! It's kind of wonderful but also kind of funny to see a screenshot of Fashademic in print!

But as for now, I have to sign off. Bel and I are settling down under blankets to eat Black Forest chocolate, watch 'Up In The Air', drink green tea (me) and be happy (both of us.) Night!
