Life Lately - Christmas!

Wowzers! what a crazy weeks it's been! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas. I did. I got my tattoo finished, I watched 25 Christmas movies (yep, I did it!), I made lots of desserts for Christmas feasts. Here is some photos from the last week.

Unscheduled lunch with my folks a couple of days before Xmas. We enjoyed a couple of glasses of Prosecco

And had fried custard for dessert (this is my FAV!) It's at Lallah Rookh

I made some Ice cream

And coconut ices

Enjoyed this sangria while listening to Mulder at Pica Bar

Caught up with these awesome babes

Ate a Punk hot dog at Run Amuk

It was a great night, with awesome conversation

I've got a bucket load of posts scheduled for the next few days (weeks!) I'll be sharing the recipes from my Christmas baking, and there will be outfit posts (I got a HEAP of new clothes) I will hopefully start participating the the Aussie Curves posts! And the regular photo dumps and Things I Love Thursdays will be back :)

I've got a very exciting 2013 coming up, and I can't wait to share it through this blog. 

I hope everyone has a very safe and wonderful New Year celebration. Me, I'm off to see Mulder, then heading up to my parents for food and champagne, and to ring in the New Year with my lovely prince. 

Here is to brilliant times ahead.

PS This is the first post from my brand new MacBook Pro! I have freaking out over how wonderful it is. And how all my photos are on the cloud and are just there for me to blog, without any effort. I am so in love.

Things I Love Thursday

Only 5 sleeps!! Today is also my last day of work, then I am on holidays for 2 weeks! I am so looking forward to winding down and letting my mind relax for a bit. Also, spending time with my sweetheart.

But, this is what I've loved this week

Via Charles of London

Via Charles of London
Charles of London have amazing Bowie clothing! Imagine wearing a suit with Bowie's face all over it. Genius!

Via Eat Me Clothing
 My sister in law sent these to me last night, and I had to include them. They are all kinds of amazing. If I had these, I would probably never take them off. 

Via Asos

This robot brooch is so cute! I love embroidered brooches. 

Via Asos

This wriggle dress is just gorgeous!

Via Asos
I also love this galaxy top. 

Speaking of Asos. Nearly everything on my wishlist is on stupid mega sale. I am upset over this, as I will basically have no spare money until April. I can't believe how cheap the things are! It's like torture!!!!

I also these these Science World Museum billboards are cool.

I have to admit, that I laughed pretty hard at some of these.

Well that's it for today!

Lately - Springsteen, Bunnies & Dresses

I am so excited that it is only 6 days until Christmas! I have only got today and tomorrow left of work, and then I am on holidays. Friday (providing the world doesn't end) I'm getting my leg tattoo finished (!!) and then I'm going to an End of The World, Last Supper party. I have to bring the meal I would want to eat if it was my last. I am having trouble with this, because I love food so much, it's hard to narrow down what I would want the last thing I eat to be. I'm strongly leaning towards cake.

I am doing well on my 25 Christmas Movies before Christmas Day task. I will post about this in a couple of days. 

So, here is what's been happening with me these last few days!

My Sister and I bought tickets to go and see Bruce Springsteen in March. Now, of course, he isn't coming to Perth, where we live, so we are flying over East to see him. This is exciting. We are leaving all partners and kids at home and having a Sisters weekend!

Friday night when I curled up to watch a Christmas movie before Jesse got home, Kitty decided to curl up on me. 

My best friends head about 2 hours our of the city for Christmas, so we usually have our own catch up before they go. This year it was burritos. I got so super spoiled! I got 3 things for my Asos wishlist. A dress, an extra pouffy skirt and a collar.

 I snapped these cute pictures of the bunnies enjoying their dinner.

Excuse the quality and the facial expressions on these photos. I just got a new tripod, and I was playing around with it quickly yesterday. This is my new dress! I wore it to go meet Jesse at Print Hall last night for a few drinks and a meal at The Apple Daily.

I paired my new dress with my new Jump From Paper bag!

And these 2 I just thew in because I was playing with my tripod again this morning. Hopefully i'll get better at posing, and my face won't look so dumb :) This is one of my new favorite outfits. The shirt, because it has a bunny on it, and the skirt is just so comfy. I have it in black as well.

The next couple of days will see lots of Christmas baking, so keep an eye out for all the deliciousness!

Things I Love Thursday

This is a pretty quickly thrown together Things I Love Thursday. I've been too busy to do my usual online browsing, but I managed to find these amazing things!

Via Miskondunct

Um, hello, it's a Christmas dress! If only I have come across this earlier, and could order it in time to wear on Christmas Day.

Via Out of Print Clothing

This The Very Hungry Caterpillar t-shirt is super awesome!

Via Emerald City

It's a ring with a T-Rex on it. I shouldn't have to say any more.

Via Lark

This blackboard spice jar is so cute! When Jesse and I get our new house, I might have to get these for our mountains of spices. 

Via Lark

This little purse is super cute!

Via Monster Supplies
This salt made from tears range. I want it. 

Via Monster Supplies
Also, this tin of Escalating Panic sweets.

I'll be starting my Christmas baking very shortly, I'm trying out some new things this year, so watch out for recipes coming your way!

Life, Lately

2 weeks!! woo hoo!! At the beginning on December, I decided to see if I could fit in 25 Christmas movies by Christmas day (post about this coming soon!). Now, that seems pretty simple, 1 per day, but it's not that easy. With all the catch-up engagements, and things, I don't get the chance to watch 1 per day, but I've watched 14 already (yep, really) and I've made plans to watch my last one, Love Actually, with my mama on Christmas Eve with bubbles and chocolate :)

So, this is what has been happening around here lately

Jesse bought me these awesome straws! You can BUILD YOUR OWN STRAW! It's amazing. 

This was my first straw. But, at dinner the other night, we were discussing how I could build a straw with 3 ends, so I could, for example, drink from 3 glasses, or bottles, at once, and make a cocktail. The possibilities are endless!!

I ate this Kinder Santa

I went to the shop to get some last minute Christmas things, and this for $4. I couldn't possibly leave the store without it. 

I had some cuddles with Kitty. When I'm lying on my side on the couch, he insists on lying on my side.

I put up my new snowflake lights. I originally put them here, on the shelves in the lounge, but then I changed my mind and moved them to the bedroom.

Pretty snowflakes!

I made a yummy stir fry on Sunday night (recipe to come!)

I bought and ate this giant pretzel.

I LOVE banana paddle pops, I've got a box stashed in the freezer at work. In fact, I might go have one right now!

Things I Love Thursday

19 days to go!! woop!

It was my oldest brothers birthday yesterday, and we went out for dinner to celebrate. We went to this lovely Japanese place called Bonsai. Becuase there is so many of us, we had a banquet menu, which is good, because you get to try a bit of everything. A lot of it was seafood though, but I still felt full. Especially after my Creme Brulee. My Sister and I teamed up to buy Sam a R2D2 lego. It is pretty awesome. I've told him I want him to post photo updates as he builds it. 

Anyway, on to the things I've found this week that I love

Via Topshop

I love the colour of this wedges!

Via Topshop

Glittery boots!! So pretty!

Via Asos

I know that it's technically supposed to be summer here (but it insists on raining), but I still want this bunny ear hat. I would wear it everywhere!

Via Asos
I think this skeleton bracelet is super cool!

That's it for this week! Short and sweet :)
