Christmas around Sydney

Yesterday I went for a stroll around and took in all the seasonal decorations that this fine city has to offer.

It feels slightly strange to be seeing giant inflatable Santa Clauses when it is 30 degrees out but still at least it got me in the festive mood.

Celebrating Fleet Review

Last weekend was the Australian Navy Fleet Review which celebrated 100 years of the Australian Navy.

I was incredibly fortunate to be able to enjoy the show from a VIP area overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

It truly amazing watching all the boats bobbing up and down in the harbour. Then it was all about the fireworks. I love fireworks anyway but seeing so many in such an iconic place was a real pinch me moment and made me realise how lucky I am to be exploring this fantastic city.

Singing along

At Bunga Bunga that is.

For my last day at work the girls arranged for us all to go to Bunga Bunga for a good old sing a long with Thursday night ‘Drag-aoke’

Hosted by the fabulous ‘John’ we sat and ate our way through the most amazing pizza – it was so delicious and I love it when you sit with your friends and share such good food.

After several cocktails I plucked up the courage to head on stage for a song, dragging along two ‘willing’ friends! As you will see from the pictures I didn’t spend that much time with the mic – Nick was all over that and loving it!

However we were out sung by dearest Anna which resulted in her taking the championship cocktail!

Following my humiliation there was nothing else for it but to dance the night away to old classics and with fantastic company. When the time came for us to move on, we headed over to 151 for even more dancing until the early hours.

Going to miss not seeing these faces every day but I’ll be seeing you all soon xx

What I was wearing – sequin skirt from ASOS, shirt from Sainsburys and hat from Bunga Bunga.

Shimmering

On Saturday night it was my lovely housemates birthday party at The Book Club in Hoxton.

It is not a super smart venue but it was a special occasion so I wanted to dress up a little bit.

Before I wore what I actually wore I was going to wear this sequin dress from Vera Moda that I picked up in the sale – however I wasn’t feeling it when I tried it on.

In the end I decided to wear my sequined skirt from Asos and my white tee and blazer both from Zara. I kept the accessories simple with my ‘love’ necklace from Accessorize.

I plumped for a raspberry lipstick to pull the whole look together. On my nails are a combination of amber with gold flecks – haven’t painted them in a while so it was nice to feel a more polished.

Apologies about the picture quality – I was snapping these as I rushed out the door…
