Tuesday in Brisbane

Mags and I arrived in Brisbane yesterday afternoon for the event on tonight with Those Two Girls along with Jessica Rudd & Frances Whiting and had a delightful time at Nikki’s place. We hightailed it to lunch locally, then home for a quiet afternoon before we Nikki hosted a gorgeous dinner for a couple of local blogging mates.

Brisbane is looking gorgeous this time of year – Jacarandas and Poincianas in bloom everywhere, gorgeous warm weather and ridiculously bright and early mornings (why QLD WHY?!).

Nikki is the perfect hostess trotting out all of the things: Aperol Spritz, those Maggie Beer ice cream sticks, you name it. And it was so good to catch up with Faux Fuchsia, Mother Down Under and Children’s Book Daily I don’t think we drew breath in the hours we were together.

You can count on that Faux Fuschsia for high end quality gifts (she is the most generous and hilarious person EVER) look at the Spode dish Miss Maggie was given!

Today we’ve got a little shopping to do, some work and of course I get to let myself loose on Nikki’s wardrobe for tonight’s ensemble. I packed NOTHING. On purpose. If you are coming tonight I hope you come and say hi – it looks like it’s going to be a fun night!

    You met Megan! Lucky you. I’m sure we could talk for hours!

  11. The sandals are “Ancient Greek Sandals” and I must say I am lucky to have the same size feet as Faux and to be the recipient of her decluttering!
    It was lovely to see you last night…and to meet Maggie…she is every bit as perfect as I thought she would be!
    I hope you have fun tonight!

  12. You can find sandals on esty ?

  13. Etsy

  14. Those flowers look stunning! I’ve only been to Brisbane once, but it was pouring and I got so drunk that when I walked back to my friend’s apartment in the middle of the night I didn’t realise I was on a floating bridge and thought there was an earthquake when it moved. Fond memories 😉

    I think my wife and FF speak via the internet frequently (or maybe they once did when the Vogue Forum was at its pinnacle) but have never met. You are a lucky lady to know her! She does sound pretty hilarious yet also kind hearted.

  16. The sandals are devine!!! @olgalewisstylist (on instagram) sells them, she also sells them through South of the Border Sydney if that helps others out x
