Lana Del Rey: New single ‘Wait For Life’ lyrics

Why you make me work so hard to put on the evening show
When you know that all I want is to make your money grow?
You’re like a baby who don’t got nowhere to go
I feel you eyeing me
You keep it on the low

But I can’t let you in
And I can’t keep you out
I wait for life to win
But it never comes around

And I can’t hear you call
And I can’t hear me shout
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around

Don’t know me
I’m lonely

Why you make me take that sh*t to put on that everning show
When you know I don’t need it?
You’re like a baby, don’t know better
You don’t know
You drag me down, you try to keep it on the low

But I can’t let you in
And I can’t keep you out
I wait for life to win
But it never comes around

And I can’t hear you call
And I can’t hear me shout
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around

Feel like I’m falling apart
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?

But I can’t let you in
And I can’t keep you out
I wait for life to win
But it never comes around

And I can’t hear you call
And I can’t hear me shout
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around

Don’t know me
I’m lonely

Recipe: Butternut and Feta Quiche

I spontaneously tried this recipe for the first time when a craving for butternut hit me. The proof is in the pudding and my husband loved it.

This dish can be served as a main with a side salad for a vegetarian option or as a side dish when combined with meat.

Spice up this recipe by adding other greens like spinach, green beans or mixed veg for a fuller taste.

Grated cheddar cheese

Shortbread pastry crust

Herb Garden: A beginner’s guide

I’ve been wanting to grow a herb garden for a few months now, but planning a wedding makes everything else a second priority.

With the wedding, honeymoon and all the excitement done and dusted, I needed to find something else to put all my energy, focus, planning and effort into. Then it clicked, it’s time to start my long overdue herb garden..

Here’s an infograph that helped me decide which herbs I will benefit from for my cooking and where the best spot is to plant them.

Happy gardening!

Things to consider when choosing a wedding venue

Choosing a wedding venue is the biggest task in planning a wedding. Here are some tips to send you on the right track.

After all the hype and excitement followed by the well-wishes of your engagement, reality starts to sink in and some serious planning is in order to make you fairy-tale day a reality.

First you need to determine your budget as your wedding venue is the biggest chunk of your dream day. I can’t emphasise this more; stick to your budget!

Decide on the theme you want to go for be it; shabby chic, elegantly rustic or a romantic farm style wedding. Choose your wedding venue according to your theme as this will save you a lot of money on extra décor.

Let’s be honest, every wedding venue‘s website that you are going to view is magical in its own unique way.  Set up a top 5 list of wedding venues that you’d like to view. Evaluate and compare the costs and set up a pro’s and cons list for them all.

Besides the cost per head and venue hire consider asking the following questions:

  • What dates are available in the month I’m considering?
  • How many people can this location accommodate?
  • How much is the deposit, when is it due, do you accommodate a payment plan?
  • Do you offer an in house wedding co-ordinator? If so, what services are included and is there and additional charge for them? Will the co-ordinator supervise the day?
  • Does the offer include a wedding rehearsal?
  • How long will I have use of the reception area? Is there an overtime fee? Do you have an after party facility?
  • What décor do you have available?
  • Do you provide a complimentary honeymoon suite?
  • What overnight accommodation can you provide for my guests?
  • Do you have an in house caterer?
  • Are tables, linens, chairs, plates, silverware and glassware provided, or will I have to rent them myself?
  • Do you offer an in house D.J or will I have to rent one myself? What time must the music stop?
  • Is there ample parking on site for my guests?

Most of all don’t forget to have fun in the process. This is a time for celebration, a time to avoid unnecessary drama and stress as you will (hopefully) only be doing this once in your life.

Happy hunting!
