instaweek | my week in instagram

You wouldn’t know it’s approaching winter here in Sydney. There hasn’t been a cloud in the sky for days and today the top temp was 30°C (86°F)!
Gorgeous weather people, which is making me very happy indeed!

Here’s what I got up to in the past week…

what a week

Hello, sleep? this is Melly. I’m ready for you now!


I can barely keep my eyelids open as I write this. Hectic week… Jay was in Melbourne for work which meant keeping a house full of rolling guests (one lot departed as another arrived) entertained came down to me (thank God for the delights of Harley the born entertainer)!

20130308235929792Acting like big kids with Danny. My goofy favourite uncle!
Tuesday night we stayed til closing at the local Thai restaurant
drinking wine and talking.
Wednesday night we drank cocktails & shared sundaes with the sparkling city backdrop behind us…

20130310121842839 I managed to get a couple of solid workouts in!

20130310120612745 Reading love poetry & playing with a new filter…

20130310123459098 Still so obsessed with salads;
zucchini flowers
rocket, apple, walnuts & feta
spinach, pumpkin, beetroot, lentils & feta

20130307180956194 cocktails with colleagues


and a few more with friends


how can you not when your city shows off weather like this?!!

20130310120911423 Jay’s home! Saturday date night; Dreams In White play in Darlinghurst.

20130310121022513 And of course my little Harley boy…the fluffy love of our lives!

The last of our guests left this morning,
so now it’s time to do the washing & get back into our routine.
But first a little nap in the sun…

Happy Sunday!

*as a side note to the picture of my boxing gear on the harbour above; during this workout I slipped a disc in my lower back! Ive been laid flat out for the last 2 days in total agony, leaving the house to go to the physio and for gentle strolls. I’ll be back to normal soon, but man, it has been the most excruciating pain in my life!

three days…

the totally cool karla & her closet

I am obsessively trawling through the blog of Karla Deras, a 20 year old fashion student living in LA.

I love her edgy style; a mix of designer and vintage threads with a splash of quirk. She’s collaborated with Coach on a new handbag, she uses herself to model her clothes, she has some cool ink and she’s fast becoming a well regarded online fashion stylist.

She is cool with a capital C.

If you haven’t already, check her out.
