Season 2 Premiere

Anniversaries are one of those very special occasions which I'm assuming everyone plans ahead for in order to have a lovely day planned and see itself timed perfectly. I felt like we were given a free 'cheesy pass' for the day so we had quite a few awkward moments directing different poses and trying not to cringe at all the cheesiness. The day before was another 40+ degree day and I was dreading that it would be our fate but the breeze was cool and the sun shone much too brightly in our eyes so we were blessed with graceful weather down at Pipemakers where we usually are. I'm pretty sure we were struggling to avoid mosquitos most of the time in-between compliments and repositioning. 
In advance, we booked a table for two at the Brooks of Melbourne and they have given us every reason to return as the service and the staff were wonderful, the place was warmly lit and the presentation of the food was outstanding, each dish was delicious and as for the portions, they were enough to suffice you for the rest of the night. I have no idea how I could describe the artistry of their dishes since the mixes were foreign for me and rather baffling but they complimented each other perfectly. I had been looking forward to their Forest Floor desert since peeping the menu weeks ago and it was adorably presented with a remarkable resemblance exactly that of a whimsical forest floor. It reminded me of when I used to pretend fairies would be sleeping in the mushrooms in our grass when I was younger. I highly recommend their restaurant to anyone who is looking for a place to wine and dine or try their lunch menu which I'm considering for next time. I do hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we did and perhaps cringed a few times too. It sure was a wonderful day, start to finish.

Weekly Roundup Favourites #2

In the past week I haven't been using my laptop lately but when I did, I was on the biggest DIY whim. 
There were so many more that I couldn't link since I used my phone mostly for Instagram and Pinterest. 


Weekly Roundup Favourites #1

It's the first Sunday of the year and I thought I'd start weekly round-ups of my favourite posts and pages which I've visited during the week. Looking back on my week actually helps me reflect on all the different things I thought and felt and were inspired by. This week I found a beautifully fragile dessert that I stumbled upon whilst looking for tips and techniques on starting terrarium making. I also read a feature post of a newly-wedded couple in their heart-warming christmas photoshoot. I completely admire Elizabeth's room tour on her blog with all her interior in their glory and not to mention, her cute little Korgi, posing in the pictures. I revisited Erica's post, showing off her lovely baby bump in a nautical attire and I still wish she'd post up a tutorial on her hairdo which she rocks so well. I enjoyed Rebecca's room tour even though I too am not a fan of pink but the colour scheme seemed to radiate off my screen with her quirky little bits n' bops. Since summer is 'sort of' here, I quite like the sound of drinks and summer food for gatherings with friends and though I don't drink, even the drinks looked rather delicious to stare at. Two of my favourite Instagramers finally made a blog! I'm super excited for them and I can't wait for the future of their blog because I am in awe of their gorgeous day to day frocks and to say the truth, rather envious too. And lastly, this collection truly reminds me of Bewitched even though she's clearly channeling little miss Drew in her collar and her cape.


Coming Back

Originally, this was meant to be a guest post only Peter isn't quite fluent with blogging and so I am left to finish off this post which he has already started by picking his shots from yesterday. I do agree with the fact that it has been a while since we took a stroll through Pipemakers and now that Summer is sort-of here, I've remembered how flies and mosquitos were such a nuisance last summer. It was quite refreshing to see how seasonal this place can be. As Peter pointed out, it never looks the same. We were actually trying to collect a handful of flowers that I can start pressing which by the way I have completed as they are well stored in a cool area inside my mama bird's heavy pathiophysio therapy books I've piled on each other. I can't wait to see how they turn out even though I have been warned that if I'm to keep some sort of diary for them, it'd be tedious when I don't have a flower dictionary or know some of my flora already. So I must idly stare at my screen until I figure out a much easier way to search for their names besides googling them by colour. 2014 is starting off so well for me as my family is sitting at a peaceful (enough) place with each other, the dogs smell fruity and Sampson no longer smells at all.

Cheers, New Years

Happy new year everybody!

Pretty New Things

Now that the new year has begun and the resolutions are taking action, I have recently written down my 2014 bucket list which I might post about later. 2013 was a year of love and creativity and this year, I'm going to try and branch off my creativity in channeling much more prettier/girlier things like pressing flowers. I bought a floral diary from a gift card my best friend gave me for christmas and I think all the pretty illustrations just inspire me to be more creative and add to the list of things I like to do. Since doodling is not my mastering plan, no one can go wrong with enclosing pretty coloured petals in a book for a week or two. This gives me a reason to get to know my flowers a little bit better.
