An exciting week

And so I've let another week pass without a post. It has been a busy one with its fair share of challenges but it ended on a very happy note. The intercom rang on Friday and downstairs was a new Apple computer being delivered to me. My husband spoilt me big time. I think he noticed my ever increasing frustration of having to wait for my older computer to complete simple tasks. Or the trips I would make to grab a chocolate from the kitchen whilst the computer was chugging along. I'm very excited about it and feel very spoilt. Thank you Reidy :)

To my parents - a big congratulations on your new house being finished this week. A long time coming but you should both be proud of your hard work. Looking forward to our first family dinner.

I'd also like to say that I hope our good friend Bonnie has the most amazing wedding day this weekend. Sending our congratulations from Oz and we hope you enjoy every moment!

And lastly, a little fashion post - love the photographs of the Sessun Spring collection.

Rachel Weisz

When I saw the movie The Lovely Bones I fell in love with Rachel Weisz who plays the mother. She is one very pretty and classy lady. Above is one of the photos taken of her by photographer Greg Williams for UK magazine Esquire.

Hair inspiration

I think I've mentioned in the past that I'm not great with styling my hair. On those nothing to do nights I've started looking at YouTube videos for hair tutorials (yes, rather sad) and I'm trying to make more of an effort to do something other than hair down. I really like this 3 twisted buns hair tutorial from A cup of Jo. It looks easy and something even I could perhaps master. Great photos as well!

Morrison winter collection

I love the latest Morrison winter collection. The tailored jackets look very cool and classy. After seeing her bangs I think I might like my hair like that for winter also!

Photo inspiration

The temperature is cooling slightly now which is a nice change from our humid Brisbane summer. Not as cool as in these photos though. Aren't they dreamy?

Late nights and a weekend escape

Last week was crazy busy with many late nights and my Friday night finishing at 1am. 2 1/2 hours later I was up again to catch a flight to Melbourne for our 1 year wedding/10 years of dating anniversary. I love Melbourne. I could happily move there in a flash.

We pretty much ate our way through the weekend and explored as many boutique shops as we could find. We dined at the very fancy Neil Perry's Rockpool restaurant and I had the most amazing goats cheese stuffed tortellini with burnt butter, prawns and pine nuts. We also had an Italian wood fire pizza on Lygon Street followed by dessert at Brunetti. And for breakfast we stopped at a few tiny cafes hidden in little laneways.

The standout for me was breakfast at Cumulus Inc. The place was jam packed with people waiting for seats so we ended up sitting at the bar. I ordered the Turkish baked eggs, spiced tomato, dukkah and labne served in a small skillet. Loved the skillet! Really yummy food and coffee and the place had a cool vibe.

Melbourne, I hope to see you again soon. For now, back to work.
