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!

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.

Phillip Lim for Target is confirmed!!  Whoo hoo!!!!!!

An inspiring read for Mothers Day, plus some fabulous gift ideas – hope you all give your mum the love and hugs she deserves!

Cheddar jalapeno biscuits – yes please.

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.

Lately it seems like every event we’re invited to has a strict dress code – and it’s getting harder and harder to decipher!  I’ve seen everything from “Party” to “After 5” and more often than not, I’ll be on the phone to another friend going, “What the heck does this mean?”  We have requested “Formal Attire” at our wedding, and I’ve had numerous queries from our lovely guests about what to wear – we’re super laid-back and honestly don’t mind what people wear, but I’ve heard horror stories about mothers-in-law who sniff at guests who wear knee length dresses to formal weddings!

Luckily fashion bible Vogue has come to the rescue to help us to never put the wrong fashion foot forward – and as always, I don’t think you can go wrong with the old adage “You can never be overdressed”.

How awesome have the Fashion Weeks this month been?  I seriously love Fashion Week – it combines my three great loves: Fashion, Travel and Photography!

Sorry for the radio silence!  It’s been super hectic on this end – I’ve been distracted by ridiculous wedding-related things that I never wanted to get distracted by!  I don’t care about colour schemes – I barely have any idea what colours look good together!  Fonts and paper thickness and letterpress vs thermography vs engraved – who gives a hoot?  Anyhow I hope to be back to regular posting soon, thanks for putting up with me!
