Umm. So I think I just found my most favourite wedding dress designer ever. Sarah Seven. Woah. I love nearly every one of her dresses, and all of the collections are just stunning. But this Fall 2013 collection may just be the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t stop looking at them! That little leather jacket and dress combo is perfection.
If I was getting married, this find would make things awfully difficult. I would even consider having to get multiple dresses and doing a few wardrobe changes throughout the day. Good thing I’m not getting married then right! Ha!
Sorry for being a bit awol, but things got a little hectic in the past few weeks. Hook and I competed in the 48Hours filmaking competition a few weekends ago as team Night Owls and it was crazy! We had an awesome bunch of people in our team and we couldn’t have done it without them. The entire weekend was super full on but so much fun, and I can’t wait to be able to be part of it again next year!
Sleep levels were at an all time low during the 48 hours. I probably got the most sleep of all of the team members, having gotten 3-4 hours sleep on the Friday night and a further 5 hours on the Saturday night. Never been so tired! From being so run down during that time I ended up getting sick a few days after the weekend which was annoying. Still recovering!
At the moment the films are in heat stage (which is pretty much just airing all 800 films across the country for everyone while the judges do their judging business). We should be finding out tomorrow if our team got through to the city final stage (regionals), and then after that is the grand final (nationals). We’re unable to show the film while we’re still in the competition as you can be disqualified for doing so, but we will defintiely put it up once it’s out of the competition. But fingers crossed that will be a while!
During the heats, the audience can vote for their top 3 favourite films of the heat, and our film won our heat’s audience vote! So stoked. We also got some really great reviews up on the website too. Anyway… can’t wait to show you all it!
As soon as I saw the recipe for paleo lemon pound cake with lemon honey glaze pop up in my Feedly, I knew I HAD to make it asap. I’ve got such a thing for lemon.
Yesterday I woke up with a blinding headache and had to stay home from work. Ended up spending majority of the day asleep, or struggling to keep my eyes open whilst in pain. I finally got out of bed at 6pm and no longer had my headache. I made myself a huge dinner (because I pretty much hadn’t eaten all day), and then decided to bake the cake! Best decision ever. The only downside was that I ate way too much of it and then felt super sick. Oops!
The only things I changed in the recipe was using lemon essence instead of lemon extract (because my supermarket doesn’t sell it) and using vanilla extract instead of an actual vanilla pod. I don’t think either made much of a difference, and the cake tasted so damn good I don’t think I would bother trying it any other way now. Can’t wait to make it again!
Also, apologies for the average photos. I made them so late at night that there was no natural light left in the house, and we currently have a light situation here (under 50% of the lights are currently working) so it was too dim to get any great shots of the cake. I considered taking more photos of it today but nearly the entire cake was already consumed haha. When I make it again I will make sure I do it in the day time!
