MBFF weekend

Hello lovelies! A quick update on the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival. It was lovely! It's always such a fun event. I didn't get that many photos as it was hard with lighting and people in the way.

One of the better photos I was able to take. I loved the flow of the dress.

I liked the colour and style of this dress.

On the Saturday between the two shows we went off to the Rosemount Wine Bar at QPAC. And the best thing they had was a photo booth. It was free too! We got one photo but could download the photo from the website.

You can click on the photo to see it larger (I hope). I'm the smallest of everyone again. We had two lots of photos because there were a few of us. Plus they were going around a giving us a sample of the Rosemount O wine. Soo good and it served with ice :) I was ready to buy a bottle I liked it so much.

After the second show we all went off to have dessert at Southbank. It was delicious and fun. I love having these girly outings.

On Sunday, Kristina and I went in a little early as we went to church first. We had breakfast and I had the cutest hot chocolate. It was cute the way it was served.

Crushed up chocolate and a tiny milk bottle. The milk was pre heated too.

I didn't get any photos from the Sunday besides that photo above, as my camera battery died. I thought I had recharged it the night before but I obviously didn't.
And it was the Swimsuit show which is one of my favourites. It's always so colourful and happy and makes me long for summer.

So this was meant to be our week of organisation which hasn't really happened but more about that next time. I have so much to do. You still have time to join the swap but it closes next Wednesday 18th.

I'm also involved with the Dear Darlings Penpal project over at Oh, My Darling. I have my group of penpals for me to write to so I will have to start that very soon :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I have so much to catch up on so I should get a move on.

Looks like you had an awesome time. How much fun are photobooths?! I love them!

That hot chocolate looks incredible. Where did you get it from?

I've just been given my penpals from Dear Darlings. I have one from American, one from the UK and one from New Zealand. I'm stoked! Where are your penpals from?

Good luck with the organisation! I swept and dusted today which is more than I've done in a while :/

Ah, that first dress is so magical and flowing. The colours are so joyous together. Can imagine wearing it to a music outdoor festival in Europe somewhere;-)
