good friends, food and fun...

Today, V and I spent a lovely, relaxing day with good friends A and B, who drove all the way from Canberra for a visit, with baby A

We went out to lunch, at lee&me (naturally!)


I was feeling mildly virtuous after my recent holiday bingeing, so I had the roast beetroot salad with goats cheese, mmmmm

A's lamb burger with chips...

V had the Thai chicken pie with potatoes and salad - potatoes were gooooood

How gorgeous is little A? She is so smiley and happy! And she pulls THE most hilarious faces

I had to post this picture because its so hilariously creepy! I have NO idea what V is doing here, but it kinda looks like a scene from an alien movie to me!

The weather has definitely taken a turn for the chillier! Whilst I have been loving the summery heat, the humidity has been a little oppressive of late, so I am welcoming the cool change

I adore Leona Edmiston tights beyond measure, but the sheer ones are Just. So. Damn. Sheer! Mine usually survive around 2-3 wears before becoming laddered beyond all repair. I am currently in love with these heart-print tights, and will cry buckets when they finally bite the dust

Hope you are all having lovely weeks!


  1. I love those tights!!!! Must, must, must find some. Little bebe is such a cutie too!!!

  2. I know what you mean about the tights. I got the polka dot ones last winter, (carefully) pulled them on and got an instant ladder. Obviously there were tears involved.

  3. Here's hoping your tights last for at least 5 wears!!!

  4. Baby A is so cute!
    You look lovely! I too am welcoming the cool change (only we've had one day over 40 so far, so it's not so much a cool change, but a cool constant).
    I have enjoyed your holiday posts a lot. It's back to work for me tomorrow. I am looking forward to it, but at the same time want more holiday!! Can't wait to dress up tomorrow though!

  5. that lover frock looks ace on you!
    i love sheer tights but they ain't so flash in the endurance department. D:
    i happily wear them covered in ladders XD

  6. p.s. where in david jones in jo malone? i was in there earlier and i couldn't find it..

  7. SkekTek - I went through 3 pairs of the polka dot last year! Tragic

    Holly - the Jo Malone section is sort of near the La Mer counter and also Chanel (I think!) Sort of at the back with the perfumes. Unless its moved, eep!

  8. nawww she is gorgeous isn't she - so glad you had such a fab time sweets

    can't wait to catch up !!!!

    enjoy the rest of your hols hun
