Do you ever feel like life is just really working out in your favour? To quote The Simpsons ‘Everything is coming up Milhouse!’ in my little world.
November has been pretty incredible with the news of an exciting new ‘day job’ and working towards some fun projects too. Life is sweet.
Introducing my favourite things from November 2013:
1. Picnicing with foodie friends.
When I say foodie friends, I mean 70+ of Sydney’s most fabulous food bloggers descending on Centennial Park with more food than you could imagine!
There were so many delicious treats including amazing chocolate crackle marshmallows, home made campfire marshmallows, a pop up bar, Ramen Raff’s macs [so popular I didn't get to try :( ] , etc. The crowd favourite was definitely Mr Crackling’s 25kg of pork cracking. The expression on my face accurately conveys how much glee we shared for the biggest amount of pork crackling that you ever did see!
Big thanks to Suze and Helen for organising another fun Christmas picnic.
2. Love is patient. Love is kind.
Mr Sticky and I have been to our share of weddings this year – everywhere from Scotland to Mudgee and in between. We just love being a part of our friend’s special days and for this particular couple we wouldn’t miss their nuptials for the world. The happy couple came back to Sydney from Lebanon to celebrate with their families at The Boathouse in Palm Beach. The weather was perfect, the bride and groom looked stunning and so in love, and the company was fabulous. Big congratulations to Nabil and Bec xo
I loved all the little bits of detail in this wedding and think it’s amazing they organised this all from overseas. My favourite little touches were the post-ceremony drink bar with spiked ice tea and sangria cocktails, and instead of a wedding cake they had a selection of pies from The Pie Tin. AMAZING! Mr Sticky and I were in pie heaven.
3. Nailing it.
I’ve been treating myself to Bio Sculpture Gel nails and having fun playing with different colours – from baby pink, coral red to lavender with a sparkle feature nail. The lavender nails so completely matched my dress that I was shocked!
I would definitely recommend Bio Sculpture as an alternative to shellac gel nails. I think the products are a lot kinder to your nails as you aren’t left with brittle, soft nails. My nail artist is Kaori at John Azzi Hair Dresser and she is lovely.
4. Brunching in Marrickville.
My neighbourhood has so many great cafes to explore. We’ve had a few great breakfast treats including the Salsa Eggs from Beejay’s – soft poached eggs with haloumi, pico de galo on sourdough – and the Nutella Donut from Vesbar.
5. Christmas spirit.
I can’t believe it’s only 24 days to Christmas! I spied these sweet Christmas decorations in Typo – $4.95 each or 3 for $10. The Sweet family can take this as a hint! Typo also have pizza, hamburger, fries and other cute glass ornaments.
Have you started decorating for Christmas?
