friends //

28 Nov 2011

I've just moved house and I'm in that horrid in-between week as I'm currently sleeping on the couch until housemate Peter moves out. I can't wait to start nesting and fit out my new room! My cousins helped me move and couldn't believe how much I've accumulated in a year. I was surprised at how many boxes I had, but really... I wasn't that surprised I have a lot of stuff. I like my stuff.

I've already talked about my friend Jess who is a graphic designer and artist and, of course, blogs! She's currently undertaking a massive fashion challenge - the No Repeat Outfit Challenge. I think it's such a great idea to get out everything you wear in your wardrobe. At the very least it will make you realise what you just can't wear, because if you don't feel comfortable in it, you'll never wear it. I also love Geneva's Wardrobe Rehab and think I'll be doing that when I get into my new room too!

Jess also designed the personalised stationery I bought for my friends as a wedding present.

So this just might be my first jealousy post. I've blogged about my friend Sam before. She's now working as the Online Editor for Sportsgirl in Australia and runs Twin Cat Vintage. And now I've just discovered Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage with photography and fashion sense to die for. Now, these two ladies are both adopted from South Korea (just like me) and I would like to have their lives please. THEY'RE JUST SO COOL. Ahem, excuse the outburst.

london // one year anniversary

13 Nov 2011

I've been living in London for one year already! Where on earth did all the time go? Since I left Australia I've been to: USA (San Francisco, Phoenix, Las Vegas, New York), France (Paris x 2), Switzerland (Lucerne), Germany (Heidelberg), Austria (Strasburg), Italy (Rome, Venice, Florence, Tuscany, Verona), Vatican City, Netherlands (Amsterdam), Belgium (Brugge), Scotland (Glasgow, Edinburgh), Ireland (Dublin), and Liverpool, Bath and Oxford in the UK. I'm going to Cambridge next weekend and Berlin just before Christmas - for the Christmas markets! I've managed to travel quite a bit, but there's still so many places to try and visit before I leave! The Greek Islands, Spain, Prague... and I want to go back to Paris and Italy again. The food in Italy is so so good.

I'm also getting excited about Christmas. Craig will be happy. I was a bit of a grinch last year and he is Mr Christmas. I've seriously never met anyone who's more into Christmas.

And I thought I'd post some photos from a year ago when I first arrived.

Royal Albert Hall - I still haven't been to anything there

Leopard print muff - £15. It has a little zippered pocket too. Probably for cigarettes, but in reality it'll be for my oyster card.

This will divide people, but I've wanted a vintage (ONLY buy vintage!) fur coat for a while, but never thought I could afford one. Here's my vintage rabbit fur coat I bought for £40.

60s hat - £16

instagram // my last two days

6 Nov 2011

My last two days in Instagram photos

I'm addicted to Instagram of late! Here's my last two days in photos.

Christmasy time in Covent Garden

Dinner at Jon's: Duck with cherry red wine sauce, truffle salt mash, honeyed carrots, Parmesan broccoli, and Letizia's starter of prosciutto mozzarella & rocket crostini.

Walking through the cemetery to get to the tube.

A BBQ Squared pork roll from Banhmi, and a soy latte (with Bonsoy!) at Broadway Market. It was featured in the first episode of Jamie's Great Britain and I had to try it!

Caramelised red onion and some kind of cheese quiche from Artisan Foods (owned by German Deli) at Broadway Market. They're also at Covent Garden Food Market! I'm a big fan already. They make German cheesecake just like my Oma makes.

I'm about to move house and gave away a bunch of books that I'd managed to collect since the start of the year and gave them to a second hand bookshop, LXV Books. They gave me some credit and I went nuts buying some old books, like this one of NYT front pages. Wrapping paper and DIY stationery here I come!
