Tidbits 2012

I can't believe it's February already.  Where has the time gone?

How's everyone going with their new year's resolutions/goals? I don't even remember mine, but one thing I am doing is making a dent on getting lots of practice with the salsa dancing - I've been going out dancing at least 3-4 times a week, hence the severe lack of sleep (and blog posts!)

This is a bit of a mish/mash post of tidbits of the past few months that haven't been enough for a post of it's own:

Mid-week pick me up with the fried ice-cream at Holy Basil - best cure for mid-week itis.  I've heard that Holy Basil has opened up at Shark Hotel - is it as packed as the Canley Heights branch?

A couple of visits to Jamie's Italian, with the first being their opening night with 50% (!!) the whole menu:

Squid ink risotto - the chilli in this dish packed quite a punch

Crab meat bruschetta - so fresh and lovely flavours, really enjoyed this dish

And of course, who can go past the the yummy desserts?:



Handmade skirts

Delicious summer cocktails - speaking of summer.... when are we going to get some good beach weather?

I've also been to Hurricanes a few times in the last couple of months:

Scallops @ Hurricanes

Ribs @ Hurricanes

Mars bars cheesecake @ Hurricanes


Maxi skirt

Gorgeous flowers brighten my days

French white nectarine cake



New dresses for Christmas:




Tea time:




Picnic by the beach:

Blueberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing + chocolate brownies

Garlic and rosemary foccacia - from the Alio recipe we received from their cooking class

Quiche

Pumpkin and feta salad

Robert Robert heels


My new favourite thing: Glasshouse candles, heavenly!


Current obsession:

Accumulating new and pretty dance shoes! It's slowly becoming an unhealthy addiction...

Still addicted to Dream Cuisine macarons - fave is the honey and lavender!

I also did a resin jewellery workshop over the weekend, which was SUPER fun - highly recommended.

Those black strappy heels are darling! And the resin accessories look most impressive - is it something you can do at home?

Tina - Yes, it is quite simple, and something you can do yourself at home. Basically you just need the resin and some moulds
