(eyelashes) reach for the sky // theodora's beauty boutique

24 Dec 2014

Happy Christmas Eve! I can't believe how fast christmas has come around this year. Anyway, I digress! This post is really all about my beautiful new eyelash extensions from Tammy at Theodora's Beauty Boutique. This was the first time I've ever had them done and was a bit worried about lying still for an hour, but it was totally fine! Tammy and I prattled away and I forgot all about being squeamish and wriggly.

They use natural lashes and stick them on individually to your own lashes. They look fantastic and I'm so happy to have amazing lashes for Christmas. I've been referring to them as my Disney Princess / Bambi eyes.

2014_11_19 La Svolta

Everything at La Svolta was delicious. I ate it all! That’s enough of a review, right? Okay, probably not. Read the full one over at The Modern Con.

I can personally vouch for the beef and tuna tartares, prosciutto with deep fried pizza dough (just as yummy as you think it is), the seared tuna and the chickpea and capsicum salad (how can chickpeas be so yummy with so few ingredients?). A special mention must be made to the Nutella pizza. The base was some kind of combo of puff and chewy pastry and the Nutella was so thick it stuck to the roof of your mouth. Heaven. Seriously.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s the best Italian I’ve had since I visited Italy and was raving about it for days afterwards. I’ve already told my friends we’re adding it to our Must Eat At List. It had a really nice atmosphere and nursing a glass of bubbly, I ended up making friends with the other ladies at my table. In fact, we’re going to brunch next week!

My new friends are: Sandra and Stina from Klaus and Fritz (Stina is also gold and grit photography) and Olivia who's probably the most famous Instagrammer I know and her sister Steff

perfume making // mpavilion

26 Nov 2014

This year's MPavilion has been designed by Australian architect Sean Godsell. It's a meeting place and also a host to a free four-month program of all manner of talks, workshops, performances and installations from October to February.

MPavilion is an architecture commission for Melbourne and each year for the next four years an outstanding architect will be commissioned to design a temporary pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, opposite the Southbank Arts Precinct.

I went to the perfume make meet with Briony Wright from Odelab. She talked to us about the history of perfume and then we got to play with some of her scents to make our own perfume! Mine is aptly titled The Helaylay and is a mix of patchouli and citrus.

As always, with all my good blogging intentions, it's taken me a while to get back here. So here's some of my favourite links. I've got so many at the moment I might have to split out the posts, or work on a mega big one for December!
