I have been pretty busy over the last few days working (and saving), visiting family and trying to get back into my exercise regime. I think the lack of ‘down time’ has brought with it a creative drought, hence not posting for a few days – my apologies!
So I’ve decided to do an update on what’s been happening with me – GOOP style:
MADE: Beef Wellington.
If I had to have a signature dish, this would have to be it. My family never ate traditional turkey or ham for Christmas (my fault, I didn’t like it as a child) – we had beef wellington. Beautiful beef fillet layered with pate and mushrooms, wrapped in puff pastry. Yum. I cooked it for T’s parents when they visited our apartment for the first time for lunch on Monday.
WENT: To my cousin’s 30th birthday get together.
We went to a BBQ for her birthday and were surprised by an engagement announcement! Congrats Kel! xx
The Fashionary is every fashion designer’s (and wannabe designer’s) dream. With detailed measurement, pattern and fabric information and sketch pages with templates – I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it just to see what I could come up with for a bit of fun! PS: It also only cost me $26AUS including delivery from Hong Kong.
I got the black version of this gorgeous travel wallet with little tabs to categorise all your important documents (while looking elegant). Organised much?
DID: Zumba, Weight Training and Yoga.
After being unwell for the last couple of weeks, I have tried to get my body back into action. Zumba last night, my personal trainer trying to kill me this morning and yoga at lunchtime. Tomorrow will most certainly be a rest day!
BEEN: Organising a wine tasting event.
My little venture Escapade Events is hosting a wine tasting tomorrow night for women wanting to have a lovely social night out. If you’re in Melbourne, we’d love to see you there!
SAW: A whole lot of 30 Rock.
I think this is the 3rd time my boyfriend and I have made our way through the series on DVD. Tina Fey, you are a genius.
