I must admit there really aren't too many things that get me out of bed before 8 on a Saturday morning. Unless it involves a million dollars, a Happy Meal or both, I can hear about it after 10 a.m.
Recently, though, I've been finding so much satisfaction spending these mornings not cosied up in sweet, sweet slumber, but venturing out to find new breakfast spots often tucked away from the hustle and bustle. I think I'll start keeping a list and watch it grow over the rest of the year!

Saturday sleep-ins, you've been great. But a scavenger hunt for perfect maple pancakes with crispy bacon and ice-cream just might be the new way to go.

Semester one of uni has started and I must say I really have missed the drone of 90-minute long bus rides, hot, lazy lunches on the lawns and the unending adventure of avoiding giant ibis. I have also come to accept that the wooden benches that have seen me through my first few years will never be upgraded to enviable Law auditorium plush seats, and that I may well graduate university having never mastered the art of gracefully eating a chicken schnitzel baguette.
That being said, it's so good to be back.

I've never been much of a monochrome gal, but I have been loving my black and white basics in more recent times. I've also really been digging these statement 'Dude' plimsolls and am actually contemplating purchasing another pair....(leopard print, anyone?)

It's a busy, busy week ahead- I'll be meeting some very special people tomorrow for an exciting little project which I promise will be up on the blog within the next two weeks or so!
Right now, it's time to hit the books and distract myself from this Wicked Wings craving.
I'll be back, so watch this space!

PS: Has anyone tried KFC's new Nacho box-thingamajigo?! I've had it twice in the last 12 days... Oh deary me.

I'm back and 21!

Two weekends ago, I had the pleasure of celebrating this milestone with some of my nearest and dearest in a venue all decked out with fairy lights, tissue pom-poms, flowers in glass bottles, and all other things 'enchanted garden-y'. To top it all off was this Peridot Dress I picked up from Alice McCall! With that print and wing sleeve detailing: I just knew it was the one.

I have always loved event planning, so I have to admit that a lot of the fun for me had started over the summer holidays; with the phone calls, trips to the party store, invitation deliveries, lists, lists and more lists! I definitely could not have pulled this off without the help of mum, dad and some very special friends - who spent hours with me: planning and re-planning, folding what seemed like a billion tissue pom-poms, running around setting up the venue, taking photographs, giving a few speeches and sharing way too many embarrassing memories.

All in all, I had one of the most amazing nights and am so very thankful for all of you who have joined me on this journey and play a part in my life in some way or another.

Alright, 21; here we go!
