So it's time for the obligatory New Year's Eve post and a wrap up of 2012... It's been quite the year!

The Mr and I saw in the new year last year with our good friends in Brisbane - this year we are staying in and I will be lucky if I can stay awake til midnight! :)

2012 saw us holidaying in Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and going home to Brisbane.  On the career front, I was lucky enough to head back to Tokyo and Hong Kong and be involved in lots of challenging work and survive what has been a very tumultuous year for the financial services industry.  We saw friends get engaged, married, move cities.  We welcomed lots of new bambinos into our circle of friends.  It was also the year that the most gorgeous little nephew and the most incredible little girl was born.

I will leave you and 2012 with this pretty little tune from the Paper Kites (thanks to Hieu for the music discovery).  I hope 2013 is good and kind to you all xx

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.

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…
