Books for Christmas

As Christmas approaches (ridiculously quick), I thought I would recommend some books that I have read recently that would make great presents.

Recipes to Remember - The Australian Women's Weekly

The AWW never disappoint with their cookbooks.

The artwork in Recipes to Remember is retro gorgeous and the recipes will have your mouth watering.

A beautiful book for vintage lovers and foodies.




Only in New York - Lily Brett

Lily Brett hooks me in with each of her books.

I know that I may never get to New York (incredible fear of flying), but her observations of New York City makes me feel like I would know my way around if I ever did go there.



How to be Parisian - Anne Berest, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mass and Audrey Diwan

Karl Lagerfeld says, "You don't have to be French to be a Parisian". Thanks Karl.

This book is chic. Parisian chic. Book chic. it's just chic.

It has beautiful illustrations and photography, with a dose of humour thrown in.

Maybe if I read it over and over, I will start to look like Fran├žoise Hardy or Brigitte Bardot. Nope, don't think so.



Beautiful Goats - Felicity Stockwell

This book features goats photographed just like the models in a high fashion magazine. They are the supermodels of the goat world.

The book delves into the history of goats - (gasp!) provider of skin, meat and dairy.

There is an increasing trend of keeping goats as pets - an idea that I love if only I had a little farm.
