The highlight of my week was getting photos emailed through of my new handmade bike frame that I got custom made by Colossi! I've been in talks with a bike shop in Brisbane since December of last year but it's definitely worth the wait. Can't wait to see the completed build in the flesh!
The blush colour looks exactly how I had envisioned it (three cheers for Pantone books)! It isn't visible in this photo but it's also got a silver glitter finish, eep.
HOW CUTE IS THIS DETAIL ON THE LUG?! Two love hearts! GAH.
This is how pregnant ladies must feel when they see the first ultrasound images of their baby!
Another small highlight of my week was finally winning a free Magnum! (1 in 6, my ass). I very much enjoyed my Ego Caramel (with double caramel!). Things taste better when they're free.
Chicken pie from Cheeky Monkey - midweek team lunch.
After getting rejected twice on Friday night (not having a reservation on a Friday night sucks), my dad and I had a nice dinner at Harry Hall.
A new local I should mentally bookmark! Definitely one of the coolest restaurants on Glenferrie Rd (Malvern end).
I've started posting photos on Zomato (formerly Urbanspoon)… Haha. I find it really helpful when I can reference photos on Zomato so I thought I'd contribute. When my mom and I were in Paris, at restaurants that didn't have English menus, we'd hop on Yelp and choose from the photos uploaded by other users.
Yesterday, Dean took me to a custom bike show… We saw some pretty sweet bikes! Got lots of bikespiration for my new bike.
Had an awesome lunch at Sookie La La! It was a breath of fresh air to be in a cafe that wasn't all green and health conscious. The staff were smily and the food was a treat - that sundae with coconut sorbet and lemon curd was crazy good.
After lunch we went into the city to check out all the sales. I bought a Country Road skirt from David Jones that was $149 for $35! What a bargain.
As lunch was so filling, we didn't have dinner until 10:30… I had massive tom yum cravings so we went to Coconut House! Cravings were satisfied, it was delicious. I ate a full chilli though, which knocked me out for 10 minutes… Eyes and nose would not stop running.
Today I spent most of the day cleaning out my room… I've got all these boxes of unwanted clothing that are in good condition now, I'm hoping to sell them at the Camberwell market or something… But ceebs waking up early. I also got around to taking all my band posters off my walls (sooooo naked now) - it feels more like an adult's bedroom now, it was very much a teenager's room before.
Lol. My fingers were about to type, "Kind regards,"
