Chic with just enough lace

There was no denying yesterday that Kate Middleton got it right. The contemporary design by Sarah Burton for iconic Alexander McQueen was almost too fitting. McQueen dresses a real Queen - He would be so chuffed! 
But the dress itself: Sweetheart neckline, modest bust, perfect A line skirt, not a puff in sight and just enough lace. And did I mention the bustle! The skirt layers at the back showed the intricate craftsmanship that gave the impression the ample train was being held to the dress by a mere thread.
My favourite part of the dress was the divinely subtle lace appliqué along the base of the skirt. It caught the light so softly, without attracting the eye away from her long silhouette.
It is a timeless dress that flawlessly exemplifies a Middleton class girl's transformation into a Princess.
Her second dress, also by Sarah Burton for McQueen was just as classic with a little princess thrown in. Cashmere cardi over identical sweetheart bodice of the ceremonial dress. The jewel belt wasted no time placing her in April 2011.


Pippa wore Sarah Burton for McQueen that as not only timeless, but ageless. Conservative cap sleeve and cowl neckline perfectly portrayed a Princess's sister.

Her second dress was elegant and super sexy in Jade green
WHAT THE DESIGNERS THOUGHT SHE SHOULD WEAR:

Gucci

Alexander Wu

Karl Lagerfield
Valentino

Vera Wang

I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings. Growing up, I was deeply influenced by stories and traditions of the varied spiritual doctrines my eccentric mother subscribed to. This left me with a rich curiosity, and audaciousness to seek out the world for myself. I spent many years overseas and returned to my roots to raise my own daughters in the little rainforest village of Uki.

Cooking live on TVSN with Peter Mason

  Cooking live on TV with Satvik Foods on TVSN was another thrilling experience, filled with flavourful "here's something I prepared earlier" dishes, nerves, and lots of fun! My sister joined me for the first time for an intro, and we shared our passion for Ayurvedic-inspired cooking with Peter Mason and our live audience. Thank you to everyone who tuned in and supported us on this exciting culinary journey!

Satvik Foods nourishment

  I want to share with you my gratitude and joy for the past five years of working alongside my sister, Kat and her husband Moi, at Satvik Foods. As a family-owned business, Satvik Foods has been a creative outlet for me within this mature company of 13 years. I've had the opportunity to be a part of something special, and to reconnect with my roots and heritage through the rituals of preparing and eating food. I have worked plenty with my family, but each is a unique experience. We've had our fair share of disagreements, but we always come together with a shared vision of creating nourishing, Ayurvedic-inspired dishes that are accessible to everyone. I've learned so much from them, not just about food but about business, marketing, and communication. The learning curve has been steep, but it's been worth it. I've learned the importance of patience and perseverance, and how to adapt to changing market trends and consumer preferences. Most importantly, I've red
