    Outfit of the 70th birthday party!

    One of the main reasons I’m currently in Sydney is to celebrate my Aunties 70th birthday! On Saturday family gathered at Sicilian in Parramatta to eat, drink and celebrate. It was such a great day, I adore spending time with my family, but seeing as I live in a different state, it doesn’t happen much. The restaurant was amazing, not just the food, but the decor. I didn’t really take many pictures of the food as I was too busy enjoying it! I had the Pollo Miranda (Chargrilled marinated cornfed chicken breast rested on seasonal greens & rustic mash finished with an avocado infused white wine cream sauce) This necklace was a…

    Outfit of the Easter Show

    I wanted something comfy to wear to the Easter show, something that I knew I could walk around all day in and not worry about it moving too much. The weather was overcast, but not overly cold, it did drizzle a couple of times, but otherwise it was a great day to go.

    Outfit – Burtonesque!

    I don’t know what this outfit is, but I felt crappy, I’d been crying and I just felt like getting back into my darker clothing days. I still have a love of black and layers. In the end, I think this outfit came out looking very Tim Burton-y. I find it weird to see me with pictures of my hair up. I don’t tend to wear it up all that much, and it makes it look even more brunette. Can you believe I’ve been blonde for nearly 5 months!? I miss the colour dearly, but I’m still loving that I don’t have to dye my hair every other week. Oh,…

    Mothers Day!

    Sunday was Mothers Day here in Australia! Yay! I hope all the mothers who read this blog had a great day! I was awoken by Tonka meowing at me, and then Frodo coming up and giving me kisses. It’s a bit of a daily ritual that when I wake up we all play in bed for awhile before I get up.  Mum decided she wanted to go for a little drive and look at the markets at a near by winery.I’m loving living just this little further ‘out’ from the city. You can drive 15 minutes and be in the middle of bare land, grazing cows, goats, horses. I’m so…

    Aussie Curves – Black & White

    When this dress hit the ASOS Curve site I was all kinds of in love with it, so I put it in my ‘saved items’ list and was waiting for my next pay day. Alas, the dress sold out pretty quickly and by the time I could afford it, it was sold out. GRRR. But yet again, this is when my crazy daily (sometimes twice daily) ASOS check came in handy. One day, I logged on and checked my saved list to see that my size had come in stock. I snapped it up straight away. MINE! I’m still learning to push my boundaries. I love my body and I…
