Hopefully absence makes the heart grow fonder

And I am back! :) 

It’s been 1 year 7 months since I vanished into the wilderness. 

In that time… I got married to my Bunny twice – once in Sydney and again in Singapore, bought a house to live in, and an apartment as an investment. Settled into my new job, adopted a 10 year old senior little girl doggie from a shelter, and went on a honeymoon to London and Paris. Bunny decided to start his car collection with a limited edition Mazda RX7 Spirit R Type A. 

But one thing that was a constant – besides my love of Bunny and animals, was my love of shopping. I have indulged so much in this time, and it doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon. 

So if you lovelies let me slowly get back in the groove of posting entries again, I hope to resurrect this beautiful friend of mine, my blog.

PS: I know I am ‘not with it’ but I just discovered Instagram so please follow me!

Shopping Seven

 Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 in Black Patent . Christian Louboutin Pigalle Jazz 100 in Nude . Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato 120 in Black Patent

So I wanted to do an outfit post this week, but Bunny and myself managed to run all our errands during the week, which means Saturday became sleep-in movie day. :) We watched Tower Heist and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Hehe, what a lovely weekend to round off my first week at my new job! 

My new role is situated two stations away from the Sydney CBD, and that puts me in close proximity to the shops. Delighted me has thus welcomed two new additions to my shoe-robe - the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Jazz 100 in Nude and the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato 120 in Black Patent. Joy is me, because my size usually sells out immediately but this time both the Christian Louboutin boutique and David Jones decided to look favourably on me. 

It's tough looking for stilettos, as I am really particular about the width of the heel, the essential 4 inch height to walk on, and the look of the toe box. Christian Louboutin is really hard to beat in that area, for me. 

Moving on from my shoe ramblings, I have resumed packing the house this week. It's such a joy to be throwing out unwanted items and seeing the house become more spacious by just that tiny bit. I definitely inherited this obsessive, compulsive need to be tidy from my mom. Missing my dear parents lots, but I will be seeing them in two months when they come visit! 

My travel this year, besides Melbourne back in January, only involves Singapore for now. September for the weddings of two of my dear friends and their partners, and November for my own. I think there should be more leave days in a year, just like we should only be required to work four days a week, and have three days for rest and relaxation! ;)

Hello, Again.

Wow, it’s been almost 3 months since I last blogged. Terrible time management on my part, obviously! :( Hopefully that super cute photo of Lulu helps to garner me some good will. 

In January, I flew to picturesque Melbourne and watched several Australian Open matches with Bunny, and four of my lovely friends. It was a great trip. Relaxing, and revitalising. Shopping, eating, laughing and sloth-ing for one whole week. I loved it.

After that break, I snapped straight into Active Addie mode. On my plate at the moment is a wedding to plan, a new job to start, and hopefully a house to buy as well? I have sorely neglected my little stores - Ditzy Granny Vintage, Frim & Fram, eBay, and I must attempt to make up for lost time!

Despite so much going on, as you lovelies know, I always find time for shopping! I have been keenly growing my Hermes addiction. So much so that I am now officially waiting on my first birkin, a pink one no less! ♥♥

My wardrobe has blossomed so much these past months that I now have two new clothes racks and several accessory holders installed in my humble abode. Alannah Hill, Review, Zara, Topshop, Salvatore Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton and of course Hermes, to name a few, have been top of my buying list.

It is of course no wonder that my own wedding planning has only extended to the fashion side of things as well! My favourite wedding is hands down Nicole Ritchie and Joel Madden’s. Her Marchesa gown was ethereal, and they looked so gorgeous together. So many years on, and I still think it was the most beautiful celebrity wedding ever.

Bunny has already bought a preppy blue Prada suit + shirt ensemble for the solemnisation. Me thinks I might just wing it in an Alannah Hill dress that I will accessorise up. For the dinner reception, I am currently deliberating between Oscar de la Renta and Marchesa for my gown and I have my eyes on a pair of Valentino heels to match. Bunny would of course suit up in Tom Ford. 

The venue has been my biggest headache so far, the date we have chosen is far too popular and completely booked out so I might just do a Carrie Bradshaw - a quiet Town Hall solemnisation in Sydney. Followed by an intimate dinner for 200 in Singapore a month later. 

I have about 40+ comments to reply to now, so gonna scuttle to do that now. Much love to anyone still reading my little site in cyberspace.

Hello My Lovelies!!

I trust you have been having the most fabulous of Christmas holidays, and are now getting ready for your New Year parties? 

I have been having the most decadent lazy days, hanging out with Bunny and Lulu in my daggy house clothes; meeting up with friends for meals and ambling about the shops when I finally dredge up some energy. It's been a very wonderful few days... I feel slightly better rested, and in a better frame of mind for 2012. :)

Since I have been a very sloth-y kind of person, my outfit for this post is pretty pared down from my usual concoctions. A summery ensemble suitable for a languid day in the city poking about the shops, and then eating takeaway in Bunny's office while he checks the stock market and goes through the trades of the last few days. 

I adore my shirt, I love prints and the little boats are just perfect! Equipment shirts really do have a very nice fit, and they have now changed me into a shirt loving convert. 

BUT... I have decided I must tone down my mad shopping ways starting next year. Having about 50 new unworn items of clothing and half of my closet in storage containers in my tiny townhouse does not make me a happy camper. However that being said, I am currently eying a custom order Louis Vuitton Pochette that used to retail for a cool 24 grand. My heart says yes but my brain says no, you must save for a Hermes Birkin. Hmmm...

As I near the crazy age of the big 3-0, I feel my metabolism slowing down rapidly. Me thinks it's time to start exercising after 10 years of not doing anything more strenuous than running from shop to shop in an effort to hit all my favourite labels before they close. I asked Bunny to coach me in the ways of tennis seeing as he used to be part of our college's tennis school team, but he adamantly refused (that rude man). Reasons being my extreme lack of coordination and my stamina of a snail. Boooo... 

Mean thoughts of boxing Bunny begone, and  here's wishing you and your loved ones a Delightful New Year. ♥♥

Note Three

 Bondi Beach, Sydney

Life has been really busy lately, and I have missed my blog so very very much. With 2011 drawing to a close, and growing yet another year older, I have had a lot on my mind. 

Work currently takes up a lot of energy, both physically and mentally, and I sometimes find myself struggling to smile. But once I drag my weary body home, and see Bunny and Lulu, I find some of the weight lift off, and the love and laughter I encounter at home recharges me for yet another day. 

Parties and events seem to accumulate in the last quarter of this year, and despite being rather socialable, the small talk seems to take so much from me. I guess I am really missing my quiet time. :|

Hehe, and I know I sound really gloomy, but I really am still the same Happy Addie, just a bit more bedragged and crumpled around the edges. I am looking forward to my silver lining - my company's upcoming Christmas shutdown. 10 days to do with as I'd like is a real luxury to me. :) 

Hope you are having a fantastic ending to the year, sweethearts. ♥ I can't wait to hear you tell me all about it.
