Coming home

So, after a six months hiatus, I'm back!

I've recent got a new camera and thought I'd try blogging again! This post will just a few pictures I took playing around with my lx5.

Note the above 2 were taken indoor under horrible lighting, so the camera's not too bad!

Miss Chloe just started blogging again, so if you love shoes have a look at her blog here!

What if?

Hi all!

I've been MIA for a few months due to uni and picking up a xmas casual position at a certain cosmetic counter!

I missed blogging and thought I'd try to get back into it, and what better way than food?

I recently had the Kobe Jones Luxury course at Kobe Jones (duh). I was slightly worried after reading all the negative reviews on eatability regarding the service (or lack thereof) but I was pleasantly surprised! The waitress looking after our table was somewhat indifferent in the beginning but really warmed up and was very pleasant throughout our meal. Excuse the picture quality - still in the process of purchasing a drsl:(. Descriptions taken from Kobe Jones website.

NUMBER ONE SPECIAL - crab salad with avocado wrapped in Hiramasa
kingfish and baked with our secret sauce
This was probably my favourite dish - i went straight to munching before realising I hadn't taken a photo!

SUSHI PLATTER - chef’s selection of our finest nigiri and rolls

ANAGO SCALLOPS - tempura Hokkaido scallops stuffed with crab salad and asparagus, drizzled with a bittersweet soy sauce glaze

SEAFOOD POKE - Hawaiian style sashimi cubes marinated in poke sauce

HAWAIIAN ROLL - prawns, cucumber, burdock root and pineapple chilli jam topped with tuna and avocado and drizzled with poke sauce
I couldn't stomach this dish as the chilli jam was too hot, although admittedly I don't take spiciness too well.

WAGYU TENDERLOIN TATAKI - seared and chilled, served rare with garlic, ginger and ponzu sauce
This was a standout too - the meat was very tender.

VOLCANO ROLL - oven baked scallops layered on a crab salad and avocado roll, with our special cream sauce and a sesame seed and shallot sprinkle
The cream sauce was delicious and perfect with the scallops, though it became a bit overkill as the sushi was drenched in it.

MISO CITRUS LOBSTER TAIL - grilled green lobster tail served in a miso citrus sauce on a bed of steamed vegetables and wafu thermidor sauce

WAGYU HOT ROCK - self-cook your wagyu just the way you like it, served with seasoning and two dipping sauces

AMA OZEN - Kobe Jones’s famous selection of dessert samplers with our trademark chocolate chopsticks
I had high hopes for this but was a bit disappointed, or maybe I was just too full at this point!

Overall it was quite an enjoyable experience with good company. The view was excellent as was the decor. I can't wait to go back again but probably won't order the 10 meal course again as I was way too full by the end.

This is me poking L with the chocolate chopsticks hehe:)

Okay, I'm a horrible blogger I know, but.. but.. but.... yeh.. the usual excuses...

I love Ralph Lauren shoes, they're very reasonably priced and the quality is great. So as you would, I had high hopes for this pretty pair. I love the colour, the fit is great as is the comfort, but what I didn't realise was how slippery the sole was! I ended up slipping down a flight of stairs and knocking a huge bruise onto my wrist. Yet they're so gorgeous I can't stay angry at them and throw them out.

American Apparel v-neck
Forever 21 ruffle cardigan
Blank Denim leather biker jacket
7FAM front seam jeans
Ralph Lauren Amarissa satin ballet flats

And now to some overdue food photos,

Law Ball at Dalton House Hotel

My concoction of lemonade + guava juice + champagne, tasted surprisingly good!
(On a side note I love this nail polish colour! I had to layered Ulta 3 Pink Supreme over Nubar Champs-Elysees Pink. If anyone's come across this colour please let me know!)

Duck leg tortelli

Beef fillet

Rolled confit chicken

Dessert platter

The Cupcake Bakery
L has a sweet tooth and it's rubbing off onto me, which is bad because now I can't resist getting one every time I walk past a cupcake store *pats tummy*

I've always thought my feet were pretty big, until this,

When people run in circles

Sometimes, you just have to stop for a moment and appreciate the little things in life. These videos brought tears to my eyes.

A secret for so long it hurts

Hi all!

Wow, it's almost been 3 months since my last post! I've been so consumed by uni work and felt like I've lost the blogging mojo, but here I am, back again.

Now, am I the only one who isn't caught in the wave of Inception-is-the-best-movie-ever virus that's plagued 99.9% of my friends? Sure the concept is interesting and the plot kept me tensed for the majority of the movie, but I do not understand why many make it out to be a complete mindf*ck? Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie, just not one of the best, in my opinion at least. Perhaps my expectations were too high after hearing so many raves about it. Toy Story 3 on the other hand... ♥

Spring, Spring oh wherefore art thou? I'm so sick of looking like balloon with 10 layers of clothing. The weather's finally warming up, please let it stay that way! I received this dress the other day, I really like it - it reminds me of the Lover Disciple Dress which I regret not getting when it was still in stores, and so when I saw this dress (and its price) I knew I had to have it!

ASOS pleat dress
Forever 21 sequin bow cardigan
ASOS heart seam stockings

Oh oh, I will be getting my paws on a DSLR soon so here's hoping that the picture quality will improve!:)

I sleep, I wake, I try hard not to break,

It's a Saturday night and here I am catching up on readings and assignments whilst my neighbours are belting out tunes next door. Uni life sucks.

These picture were taken with my old Nokia phone and I had only discovered them again recently.
Katharine Jett dress (favourite dress ever!)
Purple stockings
Ralph Lauren Melba flats
(which have since gone into the bin - very upset that I couldn't find a back, they were so so comfortable)

Continuing on with camera photos, I was at L's last weekend and decided to take a little break whilst preparing for our moot and naturally I took out my phone and started abusing her mirror wardrobe door haha,
How gross are my knees? I should stop being so accident prone and play less bball i think!

And featuring L's piglet pillow=)

I love the lace detail on this dress!

CRYX lace dress
Silk rose scarf as belt

How is everyone elses' weekend going?:)

Paper bags and angry voices, under a sky of dust

Even though the last few days was meant to be a "break", I got barely any, if any. It was all about catching up a few weeks worth of readings - my punishment for being lazy i guess (thought we never learn do we?), with the exception of catching up with some awesome friends!

F21 ruffle knit top
Country Road pleat hem skirt
Glitter skinny belt
Zipia bow headband

I love this skirt, but the waistband is way too big; tagged as a size 8 yet I'm definitely not a small 8 if an 8 at all. What's up with vanity sizing these days, I swear they're getting worse as the seasons go by!

People often say that one doesn't appreciate what one has got until it's long gone, but it could also be said the other way - sometimes you only realise how much what you had sucked when it's gone. So wipe away the tears, because in no time you'll understand exactly what i mean=)
