Christmas Cocktails

A few weeks ago I hosted a cocktail party for some local friends of ours in business. They all run their own business and we thought it might be nice to introduce them to one another as well as check out each others products for the Christmas season, wind down with some drinks and talk (or not talk) about work.

I am so excited about Christmas as I feel a little more organised now, thanks to the these awesome ladies who shared some of their amazing products with everyone.

Last Summer

Firstly I should thank everyone that sent me messages and comments with links to pleated skirts after my recent post (here) about my hunt for a light coloured skirt. Although I have still not found the pleated skirt that meets my strict criteria I was excited and ever so grateful that you all assisted me in what is an ongoing search! With your continued help I am sure it won’t be long until I have found it! In other news Finding Femme and I’s favourite shoes are back in stock - thank goodness that search is over! Read all about that saga here.

The Wardrobe Clear Out

Since arriving home from our recent overseas trip I decided to purge my wardrobe of anything I hadn’t worn in a long time. I’m not sure if I was inspired from staying apartments that were clean and tidy and not cluttered with all the things you seem to collect in life, or if it was from living with the limited wardrobe in my suitcase. Either way, within days of coming home I had a huge pile of clothing thrown in a corner in preparation to go to the local op shop.

The Shared Maxi Skirt

The best thing about sharing a wardrobe with someone is that it means you have twice the clothing with half the budget!

Ballarat Cup

I got home two days ago after nearly a month away on holidays and one of the first things that my sister tells me is that Review have given her tickets to the Ballarat Cup and that I will be attending as her plus one. No pressure there!

My Baby's First Birthday: Smiles and Laughs

Here is the next post on Roo’s first birthday. If you missed the first post with pictures of the table setting and amazing cake, you can view the post HERE

The theme was Peter Rabbit / Beatrix Potter inspired. We had originally planned to have a ‘wild’ theme but after much pinning on pinterest I realized my vision relied heavily on an outdoor location with autumn colours. The weather has been too unpredictable to have anything at a park and because of all the recent rain most parks are pretty and green. A Peter Rabbit theme would be better suited to the current spring colours. I reluctantly hosted the event at home hoping the weather would be warm enough to be outside under our pergola. It started out as a sunny day then clouded over and poured rain at the end of the party, phew!

My Baby's First Birthday: Cake and Cookies

One year ago I never thought I would be racing around at the last minute trying to throw together Roo's 1st birthday party. My pre-baby self imagined a life where I would have a perfectly executed party, organised well in advance with a home baked cake made by me, pinterest worthy decorations, a new dress and a smiling baby. Ha, what a laugh. Although we were able to still tick most of the boxes, the new me is getting better at letting go of things.
