It's been a pretty quiet couple of weeks since my last post. Quiet but really pleasant. Work has been feeling somewhat leisurely, busy but fun. I've got Paris to look forward to in the coming weeks too! First time taking time off work (apart from that one sick day) since I started in March 2014, over a year ago… I haven't really felt the need for a break and to be honest, I have a fear of missing out on things that'll happen at work while I'm away… Like the mid-year dinner and potentially welcoming a new member into our team, I'd cry if a smash and grab happened in my absence! Paris will be more amazing though, of course.
Sometime last week, I attended the WGSN trend summit with a group of girls from work… Predictably embraced and got right into the catering. It was an interesting and informative morning - there was mention of Brown and Cony (Line) in the presentation and I had a proud mother moment, my babies! (Help me) - ha.
The following day (?) we met up with a girl who recently left our team for lunch at Konna (?) which was nice. My hands smelled of garlic naan for the rest of the day though.
Last Saturday Dean picked my mom and I up and the three of us hung out in South Melbourne. I decided that the place we had lunch at was my new favourite Mexican restaurant in Melbourne. The name escapes me (*something* y *loco, poco, or something*) but it's connected to the market.
Trailing new hairstyles on Dean with my gross hair.
Last Sunday was Mother's Day. We didn't do much for it but my brother and I took our mother out for brunch at Gardiner and Field. I'm not sure but I feel like they've improved heaps since we sussed out the place when it first opened a few years ago - a way better option than Coin Laundry if you're looking for a cafe in Armadale.
Last night I had dinner with my dad at Goemon. It'd been a few weeks since I last saw him so it was good to catch up. He seemed quite chummy with the staff there… Apparently he'd been to karaoke with the young sushi chef. The food was good, it's always good there.
After a great 10 hours of sleep last night, my dad took my brother and I out for breakfast at 8 Days. Above is a collage he made and posted on Facebook, lol. He loves a good check-in.
My sweet potato/beetroot/strawberry pressed juice went with my outfit.
I had the French toast. The bread was a croissant! Delish.
