I am so thankful that this week is OVER! I had a super late night on Monday (2:30am) with a 6:30 start the next morning… or that morning. A full day in Sydney, and then a night in the emergency room. The rest of the week has been me healing and sleeping – hence a lack of posts. I blame my banged up hand and pain killers for that.
Favorite Song: Cheerleader – Omi
I’m loving this super catchy tune. It just makes me want to get up and dance.
Favorite Shopping Haul: Adamstown Markets
On Sunday I dragged Ben out of bed and we went to the Adamstown Markets for a little food prop shopping. I walked away with two plates, two ceramic bowls, a wood serving board, and vintage tongs for $10. I’d say that a second hand market like this is going to become a monthly thing.
Favorite Funny: Cinderella vs. Belle Rap Battle
Favorite Event: PBEvent Photography Class
Earlier this week I was invited to Sydney for a Pro Blogger Event. I woke up super early and headed down to Circular Quay with my friend Jess from Peachy Keen Mumma and Liz from The Curious Novocastrian. The best part of the day wasn’t the actual event but a class they held in the afternoon by the Olympus. They walked us through how to get off the automatic settings for our camera and how to take some really neat shots! I am looking forward to practicing what I’ve learned as soon as my fingers heal.
Jess and I were so happy that there was a Whole30 approved snack at the event. Hooray for almonds and fruit!
My obligatory I’m in Sydney look at the bridge photo!
Oh, and I must add that my train ticket to Sydney was only $5. I was a little blown away and started questioning why I don’t go to Sydney more often. Therefore, I’m heading back down on Monday night for another blogging event.
Favorite Article: Secrets to Food Porn
Speaking of taking a good photo, I came across this article/video from the New York Times with a behind the scenes look into how their photographer take the photos for The Times recipes.
A few take aways:
Light makes or breaks a shot.
A love for food, and desire to eat what is in front of you.
Food is Art.
The 3 minute video is basically like watching the best part from the movie Chef (the food) with someone explaining how they do it.
Favorite WFT Moment: Why are these headlines??
I noticed on the side of my facebook this week that Kate Middleton (love her) was wear dalmatian print…. like I said, love her, but why do I care? Tabloids are really pulling at straws with some of their articles here.
Kendall Jenner Did the Unthinkable: She Smiled on the Runway
Kate Middleton Recycles Dalmatian Print Coat, Wears Hair in Ponytail
Kanye West, Lorde Refuse to Smile at Fashion Week
That’s it for me until Monday. No plans yet for the weekend other than the usual Saturday morning yoga, and hopefully catch up on some blogging I missed this week with my bum hand.
What are you weekend plans?
What’s the funniest video you’ve seen this week?
