right now

[watching] From my balcony; cops busting long weekend speeders on the ANZAC bridge. It’s fascinating and I just can’t help myself! 

[planning] all the adventures we’re going to have on our summer holiday to Byron Bay with the Jacksons. I can barely contain myself! [via]

[listening] to Vacationer, Anni B Sweet & Kanye West. I’m obsessed.

[eating] food cooked on the BBQ, haystacks, salads, mediterranean couscous, bacon & eggs rolls, caprese salad, radish & prawns 

[wearing] Veronica Maine cardi, Sportsgirl tank, CC jeans, via Etsy earrings & Witchery flats.

[thankful] for the short surprise visit from my brother who lives over the other side of the country. We went out to Bondi, had lunch, did some shopping and had dinner & drinks in Darling Harbour. 

[missing] my exercise. I’ve been injured & super tired this week and have only fit in 3 good sessions.

[reading] a couple of books simultaneously; World War Z by Max Brooks & The Preacher by Camilla Lackberg. Both completely different but equally as awesome.

[wishing] Jay buys me the new white Samsung SIII for my birthday


  • seeing Jason Silva talk this afternoon at the Sydney Opera House for the Festival of Dangerous Ideas.
  • celebrating Jay & my 7 year wedding anniversary on Tuesday! we’re having a low key appreciation day with dinner at Blue Plate in Mosman.
  • taking Harley to The Marian Centre to play with the kids
  • seeing Ian & Janine for dinner club on Thursday night
  • ordering our new car! Jeep Wrangler Rubicon! eek!

[continuously] fascinated by fractals.                                                                             [via]

[feeling] happy. the sun is shining & it’s a long weekend!
