While we must stop to give thanks on this holy day, I must say it is a Good Friday when the long weekend has started, the weather has turned on its full glory and you are in the company of the ones you love.

Wishing you all a wonderful and safe Easter!

We went along to my god-daughter’s 1st Birthday party today- how time flies! I remember we were just at her christening and now she has reached her first birthday milestone!

The sun came out and made it a perfect day for face painting, playing and eating good food in the company of friends- all things that make a fantastic 1st birthday party.

Millie was such a good little lady, sitting still enough to let fairy Amanda paint her face, and generally getting passed from person to person for squishy cuddles without complaining or crying… my kids were not that well behaved at their 1st birthday parties for sure!

Happy Birthday Millie Moo! We love you!

Hope you had a fab weekend!

Woke up this morning- with the beautiful city at our doorstep!

Me and the kids (husband was comatose from last night’s escapades) ate a leisurely breakfast and then headed over to Pitt St Mall for some serious retail therapy.

We all got new shoes- yay!- and had a super yummy lunch then back to the hotel for a nap- I forgot how tiring shopping can be! I’m out of practice 🙂

Feeling refreshed after our siesta we headed out for dinner at Bondi Trattoria– haven’t been in ages, but remembered that the food is amazing and it still is!

It’s been such a wonderful weekend- I wish it would never end… but it’s home time tomorrow 😦

Hope you had an equally wonderful weekend!

Today we celebrated my niece’s 6th birthday at Tumbalong Park, followed by a delicious lunch at Umi Sushi (our favourite).

It was a glorious day to be out and about in our beautiful city, catching some vitamin D and wearing out the kids on slides and water fountains!

Not to mentioned the old steam carousel!

That’s my big sis with her brood of 4 kids- yes FOUR… and while our kids see each other pretty much everyday (we live next door to each other) it’s adorable they still get excited about spending time together.

Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

SOTD: Buff & Shine

Last week on my lunch break I decided to get my Chloe boots cleaned and re-soled- I spent a small fortune on them and have been wearing them almost everyday to work…. and as a result they were completely trashed.

With milk, coffee and mud splatters all over them, I wanted to avoid permanent stains and damage- and these shoes were hard enough to come by in my size as it is, there is no way I am forking out another small fortune for a new replacement pair!

My local Mister Minit was the place to go- I’d heard about a Shoe Revival Package they had where shoes are cleaned, buffed, polished, deodorised, and waterproofed on site.

Plus I needed to get them re-soled… leather soles + mud/grass/gravel = disaster.

I asked to take pics of the process for my blog- it’s so interesting to see the work in progress, don’t you think? As I studied Footwear Manufacturing as part of my fashion diploma the tools, equipment and smell of neoprene glue used brought it all back! 🙂

Here are my shoes when I brought them in- completely stained and trashed 😦

Mud and coffee splatters everywhere!

First thing’s first- re-sole

DSC04096

DSC04097

A non-slip sole was applied- perfect, as I’d already slipped twice in these shoes and spilt coffee all over myself!

Time to get cleaning!

DSC04129

Went into a bit of a panic when I saw this… hehehe all good though, Jason assured me it was safe to use on the leather… and all my studs!

DSC04135

marshmallow boots anyone?!

Leather Cream and a good rub-a-dub-dub

Getting buffed….

DSC04167

And polished!

DSC04155

Look at that! Stains all gone!

DSC04170

Ta-da! All cleaned, re-soled and leather protected! They look as good as new!

DSC04165 DSC04172 DSC04176

I was so super duper happy I practically danced out of the store! They looked fantastic after Jason’s handy work!

And the best thing is- the new soles won’t wear as fast as the original leather ones + they are non-slip, AND I know the leather has been protected so they won’t hold stains!

I’m heading back to Mister Minit to get some of my heels fixed too!

So if you’ve got some shoes desperate for some TLC, please go to your local Mister Minit for a Shoe Revival!

Or there’s always the option of doing it yourself at home- all the products used are available for purchase so you can clean, buff and protect multiple shoes!

Then it was off to Hermes for the silk  scarf photo booth!

There were spunky dudes serving yummy Santa Vittoria drinks and healthy oatbran snacks, as well as gymnasts at the front of the store- it was amazing!

The highlight of my night was going to SEED HERITAGE to meet THEY ALL HATE US bloggers Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton- they were both AAAAAMA-ZING!!

Tall and graceful they were so so so lovely, friendly, and genuinely pleased to meet all their fans- they were so down to earth it has made me love their blog even more!

DSC03779 DSC03780I felt like an absolute midget standing next to them! Like an ant amongst Giraffes! 🙂

There was also a mini-cupcake hunk at Seed 🙂

IMG_3400

And more hunks everywhere you turned! What a great sight to see! 🙂

IMG_3403

Was really bummed I didn’t get to meet Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage– everyone that did get to meet her has said what a lovely, down to earth person she is!

IMG_3410 IMG_3380

What a wonderful event it has been- thank you to Kaaran at Exposure PR for having us and all the team at Vogue, Ultimat Vodka and Patron Tequila for putting on a fantastic show!

And thank you to Mary-Anne (another yummy mama), Iana (another yummy mama) and Ada for coming along with me! Hope you girls had fun!

SOTD: Off To Buy Some Milk

DSC03861DSC03855 DSC03845 DSC03858 DSC03852

Jacket: very old from Country Road, Hat: forever 21 bought in Hawaii, T-Shirt: Bardot (I bought it in 3 colours), Skirt: very old from Lee, Shoes: 3.1 Phillip Lim

It’s been aaaaages since I’ve done a SUMMARY OF THE DAY so here’s today’s!

Got home early (last stop was cancelled) so dashed (hahaha) home to get changed quickly and then out again to stock up on… you guessed it, MILK!

Because there’s no use offering mobile coffee if you haven’t got any milk in your van!

Of course I didn’t get changed just to go buy milk- had banking to do, popped into the post office, groceries to buy and children to pick up 🙂

Just a few outfit things:

1) Notice the hat? Yes it’s winter (although unseasonably warm here in Sydney) but nothing hides bad hair better than a good looking hat! Grab one if your hair needs a wash/looks hideous/is not co-operating- it’s a double-duty accessory and therefore a winner in my books!

2) Flat shoes: while I still obsess with shoes of every shape and size and my heart will always be partial to 4 inch heels, all the running around I do (with or without kiddies in tow) means practicality must come first (sigh)… so now I invest in fabulous flats because they can make any old outfit look fantastic 🙂

See? I haven’t lost my fashion mojo! It’s not all about coffee!

Have a fabulous weekend lovies and enjoy this glorious sunshine!
