i’m currently…


Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen; I’m only a third of the way through but so far it’s a beautiful story of loss, adventure and love…

Listening to:

Nicki Minaj‘s album Pink Friday. She’s so totally cool! I love ‘Moment 4 Life’ and ‘Your Love’ whose music video is like an Ang Lee epic fight to the death! So brilliantly artistic!

Hungry for:

this mousaka recipe I saw on Curtis Stone’s Take Home Chef that I’m going to try out (I even got the most beautiful deep shiny purple eggplant from the side-of-the-road stall yesterday on my way home from Mum’s!)

Doing this long (Easter & ANZAC) weekend:

sleepover at my friend Tam’s with her two little girls, chasing Harley down the beach while he’s running after horses, getting my nails done, walking down Glebe Point Rd with no-one in sight, watching a James Bond marathon on Fox Classics, eating Lebanese food (yum!), lavishing my husband with praise for being the best fix-it-man ever!,  dropping Mum to the airport, cooking a French dinner party for Jay, Ian & Janine, paying tribute to those who gave their life for our freedom, dropping Jay to the airport & baking.
