Jane-HowardHey there and welcome! I’m Jane, the girl behind emerald + ella.

In this blog I explore a world of beautiful, eclectic things to brighten up your day from my sunny home in Bondi Beach. I cover everything from lip-smacking recipes to sweet celebration ideas and some crafty little projects in between.

I’m also a recipe writer, food stylist, shop owner, vintage collector, New Zealander, married to an Aussie boy, aspirational crafter, wine drinker, pulled pork sandwich lover and basically just a girl who likes pretty things.

For you social lovelies out there you can ‘like’ emerald + ella on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest.


Also, don’t forget to check out my little shop in which I sell pretty things for your home and occasions – www.emeraldandella.com.au.


The formal bit….

I am a freelance recipe writer/stylist who has worked for such titles as donna hay magazine, Australian Women’s Weekly cookbooks, Recipes + magazine and The Sunday Telegraph.

If you have a book/story/mag that you think you might like me to work on, I would love to hear from you. You can email me on jane@emeraldandella.com.au.
