Not sure what to have for breakfast while visiting the Queen Victoria Markets in Melbourne? The Waffle Club is the place to go. With delicious waffles that give me an excuse to have ice cream for breakfast – it is perfection. I’ll let the photos do the talking for how yummy it is!
Sample House Girls // All of us accidentally wearing a little bit of pink
These are my house mates. We were out celebrating Stef’s birthday when we realised we all had managed to wear a little bit of pink, coincidentally on the Mean Girls Anniversary!
ANZAC Day, April 25, is an important day in Australian and New Zealand history. It is the day we remember our fallen troops and those continue on. It is the day, 99 years ago, we commemorate the first day of the Gallipoli Campaign, where we lost countless men. It is the day we celebrate those who are still here while mourn those who cannot.
ANZAC day starts with a dawn service, to remember those fallen in the quietest moment of the day and then there is a beautiful parade after through the city, honouring those who are still here and those who walk in the memory of others. It is this event that I attended this year.
My great-grandfather Stanley fought in the Gallipoli Campaign in World War I and my great-grandfather Hedley was a surgeon, commander of a field ambulance unit, in Malaya before the British surrendered to the Japanese and he was taken as a POW in Singapore in World War II. He was then the commanding medical officer of the Changi Prison Hospital, before returning home after the Japanese surrender in 1945.
It is those two that I remembered yesterday. I feel honoured to be a part of their families and honouring them is important to me. These photos are a small way I can help honour and celebrate others.
Lest we forget.
Last week, I had the pleasure of going along to Blogger Bingo. It was a great evening, playing bingo, trying to win prizes, eating delicious food and drinking tasty drinks. Watching the sunset over Melbourne, with the view from the gorgeous Art Series Cullen Hotel, it was an absolute delight. Thank you to Nuffnang for inviting me to this awesome night!
THERE WERE TINY BAGELS! This needs to be in caps because it was a highlight of the evening (:
Day 2: Derby Day at the races with 105,000 of our best friends! Everyone was dressed in black and white and it was gorgeous way to spend a spectacular Melbourne day! I even won a little bit of money (:
May I please introduce this beautiful couple, Maree and Chris? Maree is one of my best friends and Chris is her gorgeous boyfriend. I have known Maree for 4 years now and Chris about 3 – the four of us went away to Tasmania last year so the four of us get along fairly well. So when I wanted to take photos of a couple, I knew exactly who I wanted to start with. Maree herself is also a photographer, we work together on Us vs. The World. This is a few of the photos from this beautiful afternoon spent in Wattle Park, I’ll share the other parts in due course.
I really enjoyed sharing this moment with them, and being able to capture their love in a few frames.
If you would like your love story captured in pictures, I’d love for you to get in touch!
