Fashion Inspiration - Going Bananas

Don't slip on a banana - wear banana slippers!
Sometimes I feel like I'm going bananas.  Work, school, kids, house, pets - sometimes it all gets the better of me.  So today, a light hearted look at fashion - and bananas!

First, my favourite fruit wearing inspiration, Carmen Miranda.

A documentary of her life story was filmed and directed in 1995 by Dr. Helena Solberg.  The title?  Bananas is my Business

I'm off to make some banana cake.  I found a great recipe here (it has chocolate in it!)
