Friday Night Drinks

Its Friday night again and tonight Im choosing a non-alcoholic option.  When I was younger I always thought of a lemon, lime and bitters as a soft option however as the years go by I have developed a taste for them. A sweet citrus hued dress to wear tops off the evening.  Happy Friday!

The Project

I found this beat up sideboard in a second hand store in a tiny country town miles from the city for $10 a few weeks ago.  Would love to hear your thoughts on how I should restore it, currently its sitting in the garage gathering dust...

Time to Travel

Im not long back from a trip to the New York and LA but Im already thinking about where I can go next.  I find of late I am getting itchy feet and dreaming about destinations both near and far.

Friday Night Drinks

A couple of weeks ago I went out for drinks with friends who are almost 10 years younger than I am.  They introduced me to a Jam Donut shot which actually tasted exactly like a jam donut.  I have no idea what was in it however they tasted  great. Happy Friday!

60s New York

I love this original 60s New York image.

Friday Night Drinks

Its Greek for me tonight and while it isn't a cuisine that I frequently go out for I do love finding an amazing Greek restaurant.  Saganaki with lemon, rocket and olives is one of my favourite food pleasures (what is not to love about fried cheese?!).  This Roberto Cavalli dress has a Mediterranean air about it and of course how better to end a Greek meal than with a shot of Ouzo.  Happy Friday!

Poolside Glamour

I love the strength in this shot and the amazing red door.

Rainy Days

It is pouring rain here today and I have no intention of leaving the house, it is a perfect excuse to spend a lazy Saturday after a busy week.  I hope that wherever you are you are having a lovely day too.

Friday Night Drinks

Tonight's drinks are dedicated to one of my favourite bloggers, Tom Stephenson I have been promising to sample a Brandy Alexander for weeks.  Tom, I am hoping you may provide some inspiration on the best location to drink one and what to wear?? Happy Friday!

Brandy Alexander
Dark creme de cacao
Thin cream
Crushed ice
Ground nutmeg'

Place the brandy, creme de cacao, cream and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until well combined. Strain into serving glasses. Sprinkle with nutmeg and serve immediately.

Book Love

I love the thought of being surrounded by piles of books, like lucky Gwyneth in this photoshoot. This would be my perfect way to start the weekend.

Animal Print

I dont usually love animal print but this coat is too cute!

Friday Night Drinks

It is late on Friday evening and I am tempted by a strong Irish coffee. Made with quality ingredients it is an excellent kitschy finish to an evening. I think tonight I would choose to be curled up on this bed with a good book. Happy Friday!
