Every time I try to take a cute photo, this is happening zoomed out slightly:
The weather has been constantly up and down this week which isn’t really a change for Melbourne I guess. Everyone here jokes about having 4 seasons in 1 day but it’s really more like 4 seasons in the space of an hour *_*
A little further out from the city the cherry blossoms were magical.
I wish I could surround my apartment with them all year round but they would probably seem a little less magical if they lasted longer than a week or so!
The worst part of inconsistent weather is trying to dress for it!
I usually end up taking like 5 layers and never end up quite the correct temperature >_<
I keep taking photos of this rainbow building for some reason!
I’ve been trying to take it a little easier and relax more at home. I guess my definition of relaxation is really just lighting some candles in the background while I work hahaha!
Now that it’s a little warmer I want to bust out our blender and try my hand at making some fancy summer drinks. I’m going to stock up on fruit and try different combinations until I find the perfect one. Do you guys have a favourite fruit? Mine’s pomegranate but they are so expensive ;_:
This is my new tea strainer, it looks like a little acorn inside the pot plant!
And I’ll leave you with Celina being a total fashion model on the edge of a pier because someone has to do it!
This is the face of a man who is about to ingest 1kg of burrito >_>
It seems like the Mexican food craze has been dying down a bit here lately and has been replaced by Vietnamese. James far prefers Mexican so when he read about Mad Mex doing a 1kg mega burrito challenge it was about 10 minutes before I was being dragged there.
The challenge in all it’s glory:
And the challenge takers… don’t include me in this because I got a regular one… which I actually finished for a change so maybe you should count me in? XD
If you managed to finish, you got your very own Luchador wrestling mask. Apparently to the victors, go the spoils!
They insisted on wearing them all the way home too so I looked like I was being abducted by crazy wrestlers.
This sure is the man that I love >_>
Melbourne has way too much food that I want to eat and things open and close so quickly that I can’t keep up. This was the first Cajun place that I had ever seen and I only got to eat their delicious fries twice before they too turned into a Vietnamese place… at least the pho there now is delicious!
We celebrated Kris graduating and moving out by introducing him to our all time favourite Korean place: Big Mama!
Why do I take so many photos of food, all it does is make me hungry again!!!
I want to grow big trees like this in our apartment but even our window boxes are dead again.
I think that’s because the people above us keep dropping their filthy cigarette butts into our garden though :(
Sad plants are sad.
There was a pop up store in town by Old El Paso to promote their new range of tortillas and it was super cheap so we decided to try it out!
It was completely empty every time we went past *_* But the decorations were fun!
The concept however, was really silly. The tortillas are boat shaped which means you can’t actually eat them standing up because the second you take a bite it looses structural integrity and goes EVERYWHERE.
But you know, cute display!
This is also silly, it’s an art installation that gets bigger/smaller depending on how many people are in the shopping centre. All I can see is how dirty it is >_> It’s like a gigantic air filter cover full of dust from the ducts and no matter what time it is it never seems to get any bigger or smaller *_*
On the plus side, strawberry cheesecake drinks are AWESOME.
And I love all food which comes on stands bigger than me.
And Lottie is cute.
And apparently Little Golden Books are kitsch enough that hipster places use them as menu covers.
It’s warmer now so the streets are super busy. I’m not a big fan of crowds.
I find myself staring at the ceiling a lot waiting for people to move.
At home I’ve been organising my craft supplies which seems like a never-ending task. Every time I think I’m close, more junk just pops up.
I found these scarf hangers to organise my silk scarves at least! Storing silk scarves is something that’s bugged me for a long time because it’s hard to keep them all visible enough to use without making things really messy. I’m going to cover these in white ribbon so they are a little nicer.
Next to organise: jewellery!
And I will… as soon as nature stops being so distracting!
