best valentines day so far

so valentines day rolls around every year with the same trepidation as the last. i'm not super into it, but i'm also not a 'hater'. i think that the premise is lovely. but i think that we tend to limit ourselves. being a single gal is fun and last night was no exception. i went to somerville to see romantics anonymous, which by the way is super gorgeous. so fresh and french. had a great picnic, with the most delicious quiche, made by my friend lucy, bravo. i dont even like eggs and this was so good. i think that i'm going to have to steal the recipe.

but back to the point, i spent the evening with my amazing friends and drank too much rose at the picnic. then went home and chatted with my mum. what a lark. thanks everyone for a great night and happy more time!!

a weekend in the city

this weekend was spent exploring my city, by night. the start of the perth international arts festival began with the place des anges. whilst we only caught the end and the aftermath it was rather beautiful and whimsical. we then went to outdoor garden at the old treasury building for a few drinks... before heading to helvetica, via the feather strewn street. these a just a few quick, incognito shots. for more check out the perth festival website.

a weekend with friends & family

this weekend was so lovely, i spent it with family and friends. on saturday morning my sisters, mum and i went shopping and grabbed a shake at san churro's. i then had the pleasure of having a curry night with my dear friends carissa and allan, we had too many ciders (our new fave is henny's) and watched far too many videos on you tube. sunday i work, but in the evening i was thrilled to be my friend 'dave's' handbag to frisky and mannish and josh earl in the spiegeltent. both shows were hilarious. if you would like to read dave's review, check it out here.

boubar nedlands

i recently went to boubar in nedlands for breakfast with a friend. i hadn't been there in ages and remembered that it had a cool atmosphere. the food was really tasty and the presentation was awesome. i had the eggs benedict and lucy had the brioche, bacon and cheese sandwich, which even had a hash brown in it. unfortunately my coffee was really bitter and way too hot, which was a shame as it looked great. but we had fun sitting in one of the booths chatting about work and what we are going to see at the spiegeltent this season. the jury's still out...

shit perth people say

ok so everyone loves a 'you have to be there moment' or an 'insiders joke' this is 'perth's inside joke'. a friend sent the link to me today and i have watched it three times already. i watched at work today and laughed so hard that one of the guys that i work with started calling me 'chuckles'. if you live in perth, lived in perth (no doubt you have since moved to melbourne), planning on moving to perth or have travelled through perth, you will know exactly what this video is going on about. in fact, you could probably make it seem like you have lived here if you drop one of these many catch cries into your conversation. i also love that this is filmed in subi, where i work. its just so good, i'm going to watch it again.

'i live in nedlands - the poor part'
