Week 17, 2017

It's Oh So Quiet

Pretty quiet week this week – everything returning to normal; School, work and just the usual type of craziness. My hubby started his new job this week – YEA!! – no more travelling long distances to and from work. It’s nice having him around more.

Tuesday marked ANZAC day remembrance in Australia. It’s a public holiday here – so we spent the day with friends, eating good food and drinking rosé. No two-up or dawn service for me this year. Hopefully next year.

Sunday we spent a fab day down at a farm on the Shoalhaven river… more photos of this adventure to come in the coming weeks.

The week that was:

Surprised the hubby with an outing to see Velvet show at Spiegeltent.
Why you should Talk to Strangers
This Christian Hull video made me LOL. Like looking in a mirror 😉
Connected with some new peeps in the Blogging world. Getting very inspired by all their talents.
Qantas announced new flights direct from Perth to London in 17 hours.
So happy that Samuel Johnson won the gold Logie this year. He is a good man (although a bit of a tripper!) but the love he openly shares for his sister Connie who’s fighting a battle with Cancer is truly heartwarming.
Clear coffee is a thing!

Favourite photography shots this week


About a year ago I stopped wearing earrings… For some reason, I went from loving them to not being able to handle the feel of them on my ears. Just recently though, I’ve started wearing small earrings again and it’s a love affair that’s blossoming along quite well. I’m really digging small off-kilter studs. For eg: pairing a fairly boring work outfit, with some rocking black skull earrings. Its the businessman’s’ socks of women dressing. 😉

Here are a few of my favourites this season. The skull ones: TO. DIE. FOR.


Notorious B.I.G

Biggie, Biggie, Biggie – can’t you see, sometimes your words just hypnotise me.
My youngest daughter has taken to calling her doona her “biggie” for some reason, so every night when I’m tucking her in she asks me for her ‘biggie’. Without fail, I ended up walking away singing this song.

Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but, when we look back everything is different.



Happy 40th Birthday Studio 54

The iconic Studio 54 turns 40 this week. Recognised as the epicentre of debaucherous parties, Studio 54 was where you wanted to party if you were in New York in the 70’s- it was the place where influencers, celebrities and very lucky everyday folk could dance the night away without a care in the world.

Open for just under 3 years, it provided us with some iconic photos of our favourite celebrities.

    Funnily enough I went ages without earrings too, mostly I think because I work at home. But recently I sorted out my wardrobe and rediscovered earring love 🙂 . They make me feel better even if I am not going out anywhere.

    Sounds like an awesome week! Although I’m not even a little bit on board with the clear coffee – how can that even be a thing? I just love your photos so much, they are just gorgeous!
