cup day...

It's Melbourne Cup day today in Australia. 

Being in Singapore, today I am missing the work Melbourne Cup lunches, sweepstakes, having the afternoon off, my mum who used to always win and come home with a meat tray and of course all the pretty hats and fascinators.

Frocking up and going to the races is quite a big deal in Oz.  I haven't really seen it replicated to the same degree at the races in Hong Kong and Singapore where it is kept pretty casual. 

If I were going to the races today, I would look to Alannah Hill for some gorgeous inspiration - florals, brights, bows, polka dots, cute little hats.

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.
