I like being a lady who luches, especially on a Monday when I’m usually working. There’s something to be said about escaping from normality, getting dressed up and eating delicious food. It’s good for the soul. It’s even better when you do it with friends.
The lovely team at Appliances Online held a gorgeous brunch and also invited Claire, another Aussie Curve lover and I was really looking forward to catching up just the two of us. Living in the Hawkesbury can be quite isolating which is one of the reasons why I love attending events, I get to hang out with bloggie friends, meet new people and learn something new…
… like how to make a Chiffon Cake. I’d never heard of them before but now I know how to make one of the lightest, fluffiest cakes I’ve ever tasted. You need a special tin to make it and I’m seriously considering buying one.
We were taught a few different recipes by the Monday Morning Cooking Club and they reminded me why I loved cooking with their stories of family, heritage and community. I used to cook for joy before Aidan was born but then food just became food that needed to be put on a plate so we would all have the energy to get through the day. Now I kind of want to start my own little cooking club, who wants to come over?
My Mothers Day was spent mostly in bed trying to get over the flu and was pretty uneventful so I’m glad I took time out last week to treat myself in advance. I wore my gorgeous Adrianna Papell dress from Macy’s and my white heels from Payless USA. This dress never fails to make me happy when I wear it and I always seem to receive compliments when I do. For my hair I pinned back simple curls, wore some soft natural looking make up and my current favourite perfume “Dior Addict 2”.
What did you do for Mother’s Day?
