Lovin' Life 23/3/2017: In No Particular Order.

In no particular order, things I've loved about this week:


My new mug that's specifically for that first cup of tea in the morning with breakfast.  It's a spendy one from Wedgwood's Jasper Conran range and I just love everything about it.  There's a bit of a restrained Versace look going on with the detailing and the handle but there's still also that Modern British overall feel to it.

Speaking of Mordern British...  the Duchess of Cambridge this week.  In Chanel and in Paris.  Not totally sold about the belt (could've just gone with the CCs and not the buckele, but that's just me) but I love the way the bag and dress aren't matchy matchy or the usual monochrome look Chanel is usually associated with.


There have been blue skied days and I even got the chance to kick back in the backyard and soak it all up.



And there have been days with skies that are more grey than anything else.  Yes, I'm back at the pool and my right shoulder did an admirable job through all that freestyle and then that short burst of breast stroke at the end.



I took the train from Central to Epping and that was a bit of an adventure because I think I was actually on an intercity train.  The seats were a bit luxe and us Sydney commuters were only allowed to sit in the first four carriages at central.  There was an air of longish travels in our carriage with suitcases here and there as well as substantial snacks like meat pies being consumed.  I returned home via Town Hall which I think is where I should've started from in the first place.  Regular Epping to the CBD commuters above you, is Town Hall where you aim for rather than Central?


No trip to Town Hall station is complete without a quick trot through the sort of China Town section of George Street.  Here I am at Daiso at Regent Place spending $50 on emergency supplies of my favourite Korean seaweed laver and Japanese sesame oil.


And finally, home made fish and chips for dinner.  As the days get shorter and it looks cooler (only it's so darn humid in reality) my taste buds have begun to crave a solid carbohydrate for dinner.  We're loving home made potato wedges at the moment but I hope to try making them out of sweet potato next time.  The baked salmon was made using Martha Stewart's Mustard Glazed Salmon recipe.  Don't forget the dill!

  1. The coffee mug is very chic. As is Catherine's divine Chanel outfit. It's nice to feel a little chill in the air after a long hot Summer. :) #TeamLovinLife

  2. Your fish looks delicious! Anything with dill on it reminds me of my lovely nana who used to grow this herb in her garden and put it on everything!

    1. Thanks Min, the mug is already paying for itself by being used several times a day.

  4. Oh I loved all of your photos from your week SSG. I was born in Sydney so the mention of the train from Central to Epping brought back happy memories. Have a fabulous day!

  5. Daiso is sooo misleading haha. I don't go there anymore cos it's so easy to spend. Also, I'm out of seaweed snacks and want more.

    1. I can so relate, Vanessa. I'm super strict whenever I visit, I stick to my list and do not randomly roam the store anymore.

  6. I love that you use your Wedgwood mug! My parents gave us a pair of Wedgwood mugs for our 20th wedding anniversary (china) and hubster won't let me use them, because they might break. I'd rather use them and get enjoyment out of them, and take the risk, myself, than have them hidden away in a cupboard!

  7. That fishy is quite mouth watering. So is the bag on the train seat. I bought a couple of NYX lip glosses yesterday btw. I was looking for tights but stopped at that counter after your post.

    1. That would be right, wouldn't it? Now I need some tights for the change in weather :-P

      Will blog about the glosses when they arrive in the post.

  9. What an interesting week you've had! Oh the Duchess, always so elegant and that lovely hair. Would love to know her hair care secrets :) #teamlovinlife

  10. I think the same as you with the belt - it looks a little off! Of course she pulls it off brilliantly, but it's not the kind of thing I'd buy, the buckle would drive me crazy haha. Your dinner looks lovely, I love homemade wedges.

  11. I totally love that mug! It's look great with my infuser chain dangling over the side. And I must admit, the buckle does ruin that CC belt... #lovinLifeLinky

  12. I agree about the belt! I think the buckle ruins the look. I do so love Jasper Conran China though!
