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…
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)!
Acting 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…
and a few more with friends
how can you not when your city shows off weather like this?!!
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…
Let’s be friends!!!

*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!

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.
