Life Lately

Wowee!! That was one of the best weekends I've had in a really long time! I feel super loved and refreshed and happy :)

Friday we held a Birthday party for me and Jesse. Seeing as our birthdays are only 6 days apart, we figured it would be easiest to get both our families in one place to have a celebration. We held it at my parents house, and it was one of the most fun days ever. 

I wore Hell Bunny Motley dress, and Kransky wore a bow tie

My Dad and Brother provided the entertainment

My Dad, Sister and I all pitched in to cook. I requested some of my favourite foods, and they were delivered!

I made pulled pork

Grace made ribs. omg

Dad made burgers

gotta have salad

And slaw

These chips. OMG these chips. I sprung them on dad at the last minute. He nailed it. Thrice cooked and amazing. There weren't enough. They lasted all of 30 seconds.

Brioche buns for the Pork and Burgers

Ice cream cake made by Grace. OMG so good!

My MIL made a hazelnut Gateau. This baby came home with me. So yum

I made a lemon tart. I did it differently than usual, and it didn't quite set. It was still tasty though

Saturday was Jesse's actual birthday. We did some shopping in the morning, hung out with Friends in the afternoon, then I took him to one of his favourite places for dinner. A whiskey bar call Varnish. 

I wore Hell Bunny Flocked Tattoo dress

The birthday boy!

Corn Fries with Ale Gravy

Mac & Cheese with Speck and Bone Marrow

It was a really lovely night!

Sunday was a lazy day. Jesse had to work, so I caught up on washing and house work!

Monday we caught up with Jesse family, and then met mine to go and watch The Grand Budapest Hotel, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. 

See, great weekend! It's my birthday on Friday, so hopefully this coming weekend will be a blast too!

What I Wore - Inspiration Miranda Hobbes

I've got my second Sex and The City outfit for you today! And, I've been watching! I just finished season 3 yesterday. But, I don't think I'll have time to start season 4 until tomorrow, but I am really enjoying it so far!

This week I've chosen Miranda as my inspiration. I think she is my favourite character. Here is the inspiration

And here is my outfit. I had a lot of fun taking these shots!

I realised when taking these photos, that I have no black strappy sandals! Not that I probably need them till next summer now.

Skirt - ASOS Curve
Shoes - Target

This outfit was another easy one for me to recreate. I've got Samantha all lined up, but I'm still having trouble with Charlotte!

Don't forget to check out the hashtag on instagram for some other sex and the city inspired outfits!

Life Lately

I had an amazing weekend this weekend. Jesse had Friday and Sunday off. We took full advantage!

It all started Friday morning when I caught up with 2 of the Perth Curvettes for brunch, in which I ordered pancakes and fries. 

My 'Damn, I look good today' face. 
Friday night Kate from Sparkles and Lace held a party for her blogs first birthday. We headed down to Devilles for some cocktails and dancing. And we totally brought it, we all look so gorgeous!

I'm wearing Hell Bunny B Movie dress

Sarah from Fatshioning It Up

Alex from Jet Georgette

The Perth Curvettes Founders

We love this mirror for selfies!

Alex, Kate, Sarah & Katie. Love these ladies!

Some other Perth Curvettes joined us! Marnie and Tegan!

Possibly the best photo ever taken

Jesse knows that Alex and I might just run away together. 

Apart from the disappointing food, it was a really fun night out!

Saturday was spent lazing with Kransky

He has the best faces. 

On Sunday there was a food truck festival called the Perth Food Truck Rumble that was being held at the Perth Cultural Centre. They were also running a Film Noir festival at the same venue, later that night. So, we decided to head down about 4ish, eat a lot of food, then watch the movie at 7pm. There were playing Double Indemnity, which is Jesse's favourite film. 

I was totally starving by the time we got there, having saved myself for all the goodness, only to find it was mostly all sold out :( I started with some Pork Belly pizza, which I didn't snap because I was too hungry!

Snickers cupcake from Kustom Cupcakes

Cupcake competition Jesse wanted me to enter

Duck Dumpling from Jumplings

Cheese Fries from Butty's
Really, the only thing I missed out on was a Rib burger from Butty's, and although I was disappointed about that, I was really impressed with the rest of the food I ate. 

Then we snuggled down to watch the film. When it was finished we headed home to catch up on Hannibal (and maybe have some tea and toast!)

See, amazing weekend!
