Life Snapshots: Shopping Bags+ Food+ Adventures+ Style+ Inspirations+ Home | No Comments
Today was a most marvellous day for the pursuit of style, smarts and savoir-faire. Allow me to demonstrate:
- Pursuit of style deemed successful with the purchase of this very sassy pair of stilettos at Peeptoe Shoes. The nude colour works wonders for practically almost every outfit, and I am very pleased that it’s a lovely match for my beautiful Mimco oversized clutch, purchased by my lovely fiance on our three year anniversary a year and a half ago. I am very sad to see the warm weather go, but I am excited that I will brave cold tootsies at least until late May if it means I get to take my Miss Lennox shoes for a spin around the town.
- Smarts is basically my issue of Frankie, and that’s because the team there sure achieved something spectacular with this magazine, which boys, girls and nanna’s all love to love. It’s point of difference is so hard to pin-point, but it sure makes my day to read something a little different than the typical women’s magazine (which I still read, of course). I’m especially excited by this issue’s gorgeous pink-y cover, the spread on creatives discussing the meaning of life, and my own piece of work, telling the story of a 21 year old disabled girl who is dedicated to her goals in a manner not befitting her age. I’m also smiling up at readers from the Frankie Friends page, which brings me to admit that I love making it to the contributor pages of the publications I write for.
- Nothing says savoir-faire like my girly guides, and this week, I am re-reading Gisele Scanlon’s The Goddess Experience, courtesy of its great titbits on travel (especially to New York) plus darling illustrations, great interviews, and bits and bobs on everything from luxury, style, beauty, food, the urban lifestyle and earth love. It is all the ♥ I need after a frustrating week of study, mis-laid plans and general arrrrrghhh moments in life.
- That said, today is also perfect because I got to spend it in its entirety with James, which is often a rarity considering the strange hours he works (NSW Police) and the fact that we don’t live together. So today, he whisked me off to haberfield for a bowl of Farfalle pasta with Salmon in a creamy tomato sauce, and dessert at Papas. Afterwards, he let me indulge my love of Mary Poppins by taking me to visit her at Ashfield Park, and even took a photo of me with her (much to his dismay!). Then it was off for a spot of shopping for wedding things and the like. All in all, a day of contentment on both our parts, knowing that after so many years, we’re still kind of going through the honeymoon phase. I’ll be perfecting this ‘practically perfect in every way’ day with a cup of lemon & ginger tea and another pastry (almond and cherry tart) from papas. Happy days!
