DISNEY ON ICE MEET & GREET

 

IMG_7207

If your kids are anything like mine they are obsessed with anything Disney. So when we were invited to join some cast members from the new Disney On Ice show TREASURE TROVE for a meet and greet my kids thought it was Christmas!

 

On arrival we were fitted with our skates- my kids have never skated before, and while I’m a pretty experienced skater I must say, I was very very nervous about the thought of being out there with TWO little muppets! But the cast members came to our rescue, skating with the kids, teaching them how to balance and showing them awesome spins and twirls.

Actually the cast members were AMAZING. So patient with the kids, and really making an effort to make the experience fun even if they were scared/nervous about getting on the ice.

Afterwards were were invited upstairs to meet one of the characters from the show….

The kids had such a fantastic time!

Her Majesty in particular is now super keen on going ice skating again which is great! I was worried she would be too scared to give it a go!

I’m excited about seeing the  new TREASURE TROVE show as it has many of their favourite Disney characters- this will be His Highness’ first Disney On Ice show (he was too young for the previous ones) and he can’t wait to see Buzz and Woody!

The TREASURE TROVE show is touring Australia from May 29 until 13th July you can get your tickets here or here. The shows sell out super fast so get in quick to secure yours! The kids will love it!

FASHION WEEKEND SYDNEY

IMG_5455

My sis and I ditched the kids and headed to Fashion Weekend last night- it was a lovely excuse to get dressed up, wear heels and do some shopping at a leisurely pace with the bonus of all retailers at the event offering huge discounts.

The catwalk showcased 3 of my favourite brands- Bec & Bridge, Maurie & Eve and Winston Wolfe, each inciting ooohhhs and aaaahhs as the beautiful outfits sauntered out on impossibly tall and willowy models *sigh*

I am particularly dying over the Maurie & Eve pale pink long trench coat- this season’s hottest colour in the most versatile shape- TDF!

Then we went out and ate supper- yes different to dinner which we’d already eaten… We are fattys. Can’t help ourselves.

Dinner was an unexpected trip to Chinta Ria on Saturday night (late post I know)- one of our favourite restaurants! An oldie but a goodie.

We were lucky enough to experience the city in surprisingly mild autumn weather- the kids were peeling off their jackets/vest/jumpers quicker than you can say Fredo Frog! And of course, I’m the walking coat stand 🙂

I was so happy it wasn’t freezing- I’m not ready to put my pins away! I want it to be shorts and skirts weather forever!

So I’m milking the mildness for all it’s worth in my striped mini skirt (wearing it to death) and my favourite leopard print boots- I bought these 2 years ago and they are still amazing! I always get compliments on them and the low heel means they’re super comfy and practical enough to run after the munchkins if necessary.

Here are a great pair available now!

Happy Easter everyone!

We were blessed with the most amazing weather today- warm and sunny with not a rain cloud in sight.

We spent the day at Brooklyn by the Hawksbury River, where we ate fish and chips by the marina and frolicked by the sea- perfection at its best.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your family and loved ones, and dutifully stuffed your faces with copious amounts of chocolate!

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!

Went to dinner at new eatery Foley Lane with my best friends tonight- food was amazingly good and well worth the hour it took me to find parking 😦

Was excited to be able to rock out in my new Alexander Wang heels- bought on the weekend on sale at David Jones- they were surprisingly comfy! I’ll be buying them in every colour! (And you know I’m not kidding when I say that).

Ya’ll know I love love love prints, and I especially love to mash them up together! The key of course is in the colours- shades of neutrals are an easy way to mix prints if you’re a bit hesitant… Then just add a simple heel and you’re ready to go!

Hope you’re having a fab Friday night and have exciting things on this weekend!
