Here in Melbourne Thursday greeted us with a storm – certainly an interesting way to welcome the day anyway! Hope you have had lots of blissful moments to be grateful for this week. If not, sometimes it’s nice to know what’s making other people smile.
Happy Blog Birthday! Yesterday was this little blog’s 1st birthday which makes me a fairly proud mother. I’d love to get some feedback, questions or suggested topics if you have any ideas!
Long walks on the beach with new friends. I had a wonderful Sunday morning chatting and walking in the sunshine with a friend of mine, topped off with juice and scones at a local cafe. It’s so nice when you just click with someone!
Brand new makeup goodies that feel like presents. My lovely friend Holly gave me the fantastic NARS bronze/blush duo today that I sent her money for weeks ago when she was in the US. Despite the fact that I paid for them myself ages ago, getting them today felt like they were special gifts. : )
Flowers from T and gorgeous notes from our local Thai restaurant for our 22 month anniversary. Yeah yeah, celebrating month anniversaries is silly (but we like it so shhh). As a treat we ordered Thai takeaway from our favourite place (Bamboo and Lily in Elwood, Melbourne) and inside was this cute little note that the owner had written us. Thanks Lisa, it’s so cute!
Other: new haircuts, girly lunch dates, cheeky glasses of vino, my brand spanking new carry on bag, that it’s less than 2 weeks until we fly away to foreign lands, good performance reviews, delicious steak sandwiches, laughing with colleagues, eighties themed parties and exciting deliveries.
LOVE FROM THE WEB
Thanks to everyone who sent through what they’ve adored this week!
