Feeling Fuchsia


 
I love a pink cheek, in fact I'd say it's my beauty trademark.
I'm happy to give up mascara, concealer, anything really but not my pink cheeks.
So it's only natural that I adore the new benefit lollitint for a flirty flush of color.
 
 
And if you're brave enough to try a fuchsia pout you must try Tom Ford's Aphrodisiac or Mac's Girl About Town, two of my favorites.
 
Feeling fuchsia today.

To Market To Market


The weekend has started off right with a fabulous haircut from the brilliant Daniel at UVA Salon (shameless selfie to be posted soon) and then a stroll through the local market.
Naturally flowers were purchased and then I was stopped by my new friend Angelo who owns the cheese store.  He called out to me through the crowd (hey lady with the pink roses) and said you look like such a nice girl, you will find love soon. Do I look single? Someone not in love? I must have that SINGLE tattoo removed from my forehead immediately!  Anyway he gave me a big slab of salty, creamy Camembert on the house, so I guess being single and looking like a nice girl pays off!
Happy weekend, I know mine will be. It involves cheese.

The Big Apple

 
New York City is going to pop up here quite a bit over the next few months as I count down to my holiday in the middle of the year to celebrate my ahem.......40th birthday in the Big Apple.
It will be the very first time I visit NYC and although I've been lucky enough to have visited over 40 countries this trip excites me more than any.
I'm obsessively pouring over blogs trying to get the inside scoop on where to eat, what to do and just general tips as I'm not a fan of the overly touristy traps.
So any New Yorkers or regular visitors to this glorious city throw them at me.
 
* note this Melburnian will need good coffee.

Raw


I've decided to be a little more personal on here, a little bit raw.
I've thought long and hard about this and whether I was ready for the world or the handful of people who take the time (thank you) to read this little blog to be exposed to me and my feelings and thoughts.
After all, the bloggers I adore are the ones that give me a real glimpse into their lives, ordinary but extraordinary at the same time.
So here I am.
39 and single.....ouch.
You're such a nice girl. You are gorgeous. You are so funny, so smart. Am I?
According to the male population that I've encountered over the last 20 years I'm anything but.
Broken hearts, countless tears and the deafening sound of that ticking biological clock, and not to forget the crazy things I have done in the name of love are some of the things you will see pop up every now and then on here.
So today I will start with the "Crazy Things I've Done For Love"

My Insta Week

The week that was Instagram

My beloved peonies are still looking gorgeous in a leftover candle holder, see one of my favourites here.
A stylish mama gives us her best of list.
I may have gone to a One Direction concert and it was all for my 7 year old niece (nothing to do with my crush on Harry Styles).
And some sugary sweet stationery from here.
