Losing Track of Time...

Hello Readers,

I can't quite bring myself to believe its May already - this time of year holds so many special days for me, but it just seems to have completely snuck up on me this time. I think the stress of moving and trying to find a job have made me lose complete track of time, and not least because at this time of the year Dunedin is freezing cold and here we are still having spring-like weather!

I turn the grand old age of 25 on the 28th of May and people have been asking what I would like for my birthday. But because its probably been the furthest thought from my mind, I have no idea what so ever! But I think a Lula subscription may just be in order...

David and I celebrate our 5 year anniversary, my sister turns 28 and my little sister - who is actually my cousin, but pretty much my little sister, turns 22 (we were all born three years apart and around the same time).

These images were actually taken when we first arrived in Sydney - I made David take me to the Lindt Chocolate Cafe on Martin Place. Mind you, one Lindt Cafe is not enough for Sydney, in fact not even two Lindt Cafes are enough - Sydney has a grand total of 4 Lindt Chocolate Cafes!

Lindt Mousse
Chocolate Mousse Trio and an Iced Chocolate - yum!

We are planning to go back to one of their chocolate appreciation evenings - sugar overload, but oh so good...

ps) I thrifted this dress just before we left NZ not knowing anything about where it was from or the brand. Then, as we were looking for places to rent in Sydney, we passed the shop the dress was originally bought from, serendipity me thinks! I paid much less for the dress than what it actually retails for, but it is beautifully made and well worth the retail price. I think once I've saved up a bit, a little shopping trip may just be in order.

  7. Firstly... my apologies for being so bad about commenting on your posts of late! I feel like the days have just been whizzing by. ;) lol.

    You look gorgeous--that dress really suits you to a T! I've been dying to find something similar like that in the thrift shops... Haven't had any luck yet, but that (I think) is partially because I've had precious little time to do any shopping (besides the needful grocery runs) the past month!

    A chocolate cafe?! I think I would feel like I had died and gone to heaven! rofl! Yum... seeing these pictures is making me hungry... hehe!

  17. What a great place to go for your anniversary! Congrats to the both of you for 5 years together. Definitely, for my birthday, Lula subscription would be fantastic. Its hard to get hold of here and expensive what with having to be airfreighted.

  21. High tea sounds divine and you are welcome to pick my brains. I'm just about to post some more pics from my wedding on the blog. And so exciting that you are going vintage with your dress. You won't regret it.
    I'm busy with Sydney Writers' Festival the next couple of weeks. How about the weekend of the 29/30?
