It has been a while and whilst I keep going to write posts, something always goes wrong for me – internet breaks, holiday season gets the best of me or I succumb to a DVD marathon of all my new favourite TV shows!
So I thought I would ease myself back into blogging for 2014 with an Insta Update so you all can see what I have been doing in the most flattering of filters of course!
My trip to Bali is only a few sleeps away, and of course I am not packed or organised in the slightest! Lucky I have taken tomorrow off work so I can get myself sorted out or my flight would probably leave without me.
Here is an Insta-Update on my life through my favourite app:
I can’t believe another weekend has come and gone! This weekend Anth and I finally started cleaning out our spare room. Due to an engagement, a wedding and multiple christmas and birthdays our spare room has slowly become to resemble an episode of Hoarders! After numerous trips to our new storage unit, we now have a spare room back and we are very excited to be able to access our linen without having a search party sent in after us. This morning we rewarded our tireless efforts with a lazy Sunday morning sleep in and breakfast in bed. Later we headed to the shops for coffee and some light shopping then back home, where we parked ourselves on the lounge and haven’t moved since – bliss!
As I am in a lazy mood, here is snapshot of my recent happenings, enjoy:
Hope you have all had a great weekend and here is to fantastic week ahead!
This past weekend was a long weekend in Sydney – we were celebrating the Queen’s Birthday and my Thirtieth birthday! On Saturday evening, I had a little soiree of sorts with a Gatsby Glamour theme. I had the best night and was so touched with the turnout and the effort everyone put into their outfits for the evening. Everyone looked amazing! Sunday was spent cleaning up and Monday was spent enjoying a light lunch with my Husband followed by an afternoon watching DVDs, snuggled up on the couch – perfection on a cold winter’s day!
Here is an Insta-update from my week that was. Enjoy:
I have been a bit slack this week with my posting efforts, it’s not that I have been lazy, it’s just that I have been super busy organising my 30th birthday party. It was a bit of a last minute decision, and I have been a little slow off the pace. We are on the home stretch now so I am all stations go, hence the lack of posting lately. So instead, here is an Insta-Update to fill the void of genuine content!
The other night I was itching for a drink, something special to brighten up my otherwise mundane Tuesday. I thought of this beauty as I was gathering the necessary items for dinner from the supermarket. Whilst waiting at the deli counter, I noticed a container of beautiful, snow dusted Turkish Delights. I had already decided to make my version of an Apple Martini, however, after being bewitched by the jelly like jewels I quickly concocted a new recipe to include them.
After collecting all the required ingredients, I hurried home to start mixing up my new martini, this is how it turned out:
60 ml Vodka
30 ml Vermouth
60 ml Apple Cider (alcoholic version)
60 ml pink lady apple juice
15 ml turkish delight syrup
Slice of apple for garnish
For the syrup, roughly chop 1 large cube of turkish delight and place in a small bowl. Pour over approx. 100 mls boiling water and stir until a syrup forms. You can add more water if needed but not too much, as you want the srup to be quite thick.
Measure out each ingredients into a mixing jug, stir to combine and pour into a chilled martini glass. Thinly slice a pink lady apple and gently float onto.
