Girl Walk // All Day

Official Trailer (CLEAN): Girl Walk // All Day from Girl Walk // All Day on Vimeo.
I know I have posted a few videos lately but watch this if you haven't seen it already...  It will make you smile and want to dance and you can never have too much of either of those I say!   
Described as what will be an "epic 71min music video" to Girl Talk's album, they are releasing a new chapter twice a week.  See all the chapters here.

a cup of tea...

What is it about cups of tea that they always seem to make things better??

I think they have magical healing powers (along with my theory on congee which I also believe cures most ailments... )

Congee and tea, making the world a better place x

hk honey...

I am flying out to Hong Kong again tomorrow.  Although it is for work I always do love going back there.

I have such a love affair with that city - it's buzzy, intense, vibrant, edgy.  You never know what you will find.. e.g who knew there were beekeepers in the middle of Hong Kong?!

Check out this gorgeous video about Hong Kong and HK Honey and see for yourself:

Sew My Name....

So I had quite a big night out last night with some work mates (yes there were jager bombs) so feeling pretty dusty today. 

But there is nothing like a bit of Josh Pyke and his lovely melodies to make the afternoon a little easier to bear... 

Thanksgiving Dinner...

A late post but better late than never!  We were invited to our very first Thanksgiving a few weeks ago.   It was a brilliant night filled with lots of friends and so much yummy food!  Good times. 

We were each told to bring a dish so with twenty people each bringing something, that means a lot of food!   I think our lovely hosts were having leftovers for the rest of the week. 

I was feeling a bit ambitious so the Mr and I decided to bring 3 dishes - Mac and Cheese, Pecan Pie and Red Velvet Cupcakes. They all turned out quite well I think!  Unfortunately I did end up with a Thanksgiving burn on my hand, my Mac and Cheese turned out a bit too dry for my liking when I reheated it to take with us and I forgot to put in an egg in my first batch of cupcake mixture (yes I know now that it makes a massive difference*) #domesticgoddessfail.  Recipe links below for those interested. Mac and Cheese
Pecan Plus Pie
Red Velvet Cupcakes

the perfect lace dress...

I know I harp on about lace alot - I adore it.  I love it in all forms (yes I even love doilies). 

But seriously, how could you not fall in love with these dresses!?  Ridiculously pretty.

friday perspective...

Thinking back on my week, it has been a bit up and down - it has been a bit long, a bit stressful and I made some mistakes at work that I was disappointed in myself about.  But this week also meant hanging out with the ones I love, great chats, book club with the girls, gin and tonics and opening up emails with gorgeous baby scans and exciting baby news.  The perfect dose of good old fashioned perspective.  Such wonderful happy and glorious times. xx

Thurley SS/11 ...
