Hmmm, how do I put this….I want it all NOW.
So looking forward to this weekend after a long week! Tonight will be celebrating and catching up with family friends at a 21st at The London Club – it’s crazy to see kids who you’ve known since they were 5 turn 21! Saturday night we’re helping clean out J and T’s fridge – we won’t see them for six weeks as they’re jetting off to Europe, so Bon Voyage!! How exciting!
In the midst of the stress of wedding planning this week, I came across this quote from this amazing surprise carnival wedding:
There’s not too much say about the planning, other than “this too shall pass.” Whatever you’re stressed about is not that big of a big deal.
I need to tattoo this on the back of my eyelids – that, and “keep calm and carry on”. Let people do what they want to do – you’re still marrying the love of your life. OH, and wine is your best friend.
So have an awesome weekend – and if you’re in Brisbane, rug up, it’s getting chilly!
If only I could afford Valentino.
Just came across this amazing website called Clé Privée. The founders, who invested two years travelling the world trying and testing every hotel and escape on the site, came up with the concept of giving a “key” as a gift to your nearest and dearest.
This key will let you access their perfectly curated selection of luxury hotels, unique adventure escapes or gift a work of art from their series of vintage images or current creations by rising artists.
Starting from 100 EUR to 4000 EUR, these are perfect for everyone who has a sense of adventure and a love of style and design.

This photo proves my point that chilli is seriously the cure-all in my life. I reach for chilli when I’m sick and need sinus-clearing, when I’m hungover and in need of some seriously spicy salve…and when puppies escape our backyard. I’m babysitting C’s gorgeous dog, Spike, but Peach + Spike = serious mischief, as I found out yesterday when I got an amused phone call saying the puppies were on the loose. I know from hilarious experience that Peach is not a fan of chilli, so, armed with Sriracha and some bricks, I set to the house holing up any possible escape routes and spraying Sriracha for good measure. I’ll let you all know if they escape again!
Hope you all have wonderful weekends, and here’s some awesome posts from around the web.
An inspiring read for Mothers Day, plus some fabulous gift ideas – hope you all give your mum the love and hugs she deserves!
Things no one will tell fat girls…shout out for body love. This is awesome.
Pictures of people who mock a photographer – people can be disappointing sometimes.
This dress is achingly cute!
Behind the scenes pics of The Empire Strikes Back – reminds me that I really need to book couch time for a Star Wars weekend.
I’m seriously not a fan of jello, but these sound really intriguing. Add vodka maybe?
The Designer Says – a funky book of quotes and quips of designers. Would make a cool coffee table book!
A sweetly comedic outlook on depression – well worth the read, an insight into a debilitating disease that affects so many of us.
I just want to gaze into these simple, beautiful photographs forever.
Love that signature Bruce Willis stare, don’t you? He’s seriously the epitome of cool. He was so dreamy in his hayday – I loved him in those Friends episodes where he was dating Rachel!
What are your plans this weekend? Tonight I have to go shopping, and I’m hoping I’ll be successful in finding an awesome and wearable but still-conservative-enough-to-wear-to-a-cathedral-wedding dress for a good friend’s wedding tomorrow. I’m charged with the duties of usher, pew bow-tie-er and mother-in-law babysitter. There is a little pressure involved – after a phonecall giving us the rundown of duties last night (P is a groomsman), I dreamt that I was so late for the ceremony, I could only find and wear my jeans and I managed to offend the mother-in-law with a tongue in cheek remark. Despite the dream though, I’m so excited, I can’t wait!
Hope you have lovely weekends, and here are some of my favourite links from around the web this week.
An article on the inspiration of Isabel Marant – “I am my own muse”.
Definitely trying this recipe next – eggplant parmigiana.
And this recipe too, by the awesome Yotam Ottolenghi – baked orzo with eggplant and mozzarella.
An adorable Jennifer Lawrence interview with Vanity Fair – who doesn’t love this gal, seriously.
This place looks seriously amazing.
A mantra I try to live by weekly when doing my groceries.
Hot pink Chloe bag….my eyes just bulged, and my hands twitched for my wallet…
Purchased this tray, and a matching gold leaf bowl, a little while ago from upintheairsomewhere on Etsy…I can’t wait to get my hands on it, it should be here anyday now!!!
