With the weekend fast approaching, unlike the brioche french toast with caramelised bananas and crispy bacon (see here) I gluttonously consumed for breakfast last week, I’m going to keep this post light and simple.
One of my favourite weekend pastimes revolves around the laxed hour or two spent in a chilled cafe or pâtisserie in town, sipping on a mocha (yes purists, I know it’s not real coffee) in accompaniment to either a delectable piece of pastry or something savoury and big. The latter option always sounds like a fantastic idea at the time but come the last few bites, I’m always starting to wish I hadn’t been so ambitious.
Finding ourselves in the habit of not making plans, our weekends normally just involve good food and quiet strolls, which may or may not include shopping (I am always a proponent for the former whilst the Boy, after being gobsmacked my recent acquisitions, is for the latter). All of this takes place with a camera in tow of course, which in the cooler months, leads to that scene we’ve all imagined in our heads before. Yes, me freezing, mid pose (or as I’ve come to term it, mid froze) to capture details of an outfit I’ve so impractically chosen for the day’s adventures. Life’s just no fun without goosebumps.
Some of my Sydney readers were a little bit worried about the weather conditions surrounding the last shoot at Centennial Park which I featured here. All would be glad to know that it was actually taken on a mild Sunny day in happy conditions like those which you see above. Not that it would matter anyway which axis the thermometer was pointing, for I have a knack for ‘suffering for my art’, a euphemism for the thoughtless optimism that the sun will shine.
Whatever preserves for your toast, friends for your gossip, disapproval for your purchases await you this weekend, I do hope that yours, like mine, will be a sunny and happy one.
Last week, my favourite Mexican blogger, Cess, from her eponymous blog also surprised me with an inclusion in her Lovelies of the Week feature. Having not seeing it coming, I was a little shocked to see my face on someone else’s blog but needless to say, I got use to it very quickly. Sometimes I flip back to it just for fun!
Thanks for the love, ladies. It means a lot to me.
