As some readers already know, I have two mums who I look up to completely and admire.  They are both amazing, strong women who have been through and survived so much in their lives.  Wars, boat journeys, love, loss - they have both been through so much already.  Fortunately for them, in recent years they have been able to enjoy some respite with the luxury of overseas holidays and adventures after having to look after us kids for so long and not needing to run around after us as much!

My dear mama just got back from a one month trip away where she visted family in the States and Canada and also undertook a whirlwind tour of some major US cities with some of her friends.  She had an amazing time and like with all mum's adventures, she has regaled me with stories of how cheap things are and how good the food is (especially the viet food!).  It isn't the first time she has been away on her own leaving papa T at home for extended periods of time :) **  

Cath, equally adventurous, is about to embark on an an amazing trip to India and fortunately for us will be stopping over in Singapore on her way home.  India is a place I am dying to get to so am very interested to hear what she thinks.

Here's to adventurous mums! xx

**Don't worry, papa T gets holidays too and the Mr and I are off to Vietnam with him, mum and Cath in November.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.  

Walking down the aisle:

 First dance:

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
