Aloha NYC

I did it.

I booked a trip to New York! I can't WAIT!

I have a group of gorgeous friends that have set up shop over there so can't wait to get a tour from them and spend a few days living like a New Yorker.

New York is the one city in the world that I have always dreamt of visiting but have just never got there. So I booked. I booked so that I am there to celebrate my last birthday in the 20's.

 It is weird though as most movies, TV shows, books are set in the great city. I hope it lives up to all my expectations.

I also booked in a little stop over on the way for some R&R in Hawaii. Yes I know - spoilt. BUT it is on the way!!

I am already craving the mix of sunshine, beach time and then celebrations in the great city.

Work shoot

I always forget that parts of my job are brilliant. I guess the longer you do a job, the more you get used to what you do and the fun parts get washed in with the day to day.

Tomorrow I am travelling to Sydney to shoot and PR a new campaign for one of the beauty brands I look after.

From hair and make-up to stylists to caterers, there is never a dull day on a set. From models arriving to being under the hair dryer and make up lights for hours, the shoot is always exciting but always long too.

 It is so interesting to see the new up and coming models and how gorgeous they really are close up.

Ahh the joys. Now just to find the energy to get through the next few days. Coffee please!

Mid week dinner party

I LOVE having people over for dinner parties. Catching up with great friends is what life is all about! Tonight, I have eight wonderful friends coming over for a mid week dinner party. Joy!

 I do however forget everytime that I have never really found time (or I guess the passion) for cooking. I could host dinner parties until the cows come home but it is the preparing of the meals that fills me with dread. It is the time that you get stuck in the kitchen and not chatting to your nearest and dearest that is terrible.

So in a dream world where I had a HUGE budget I would get a cook in to prepare and serve and I would sit back with a fabulous glass of vino in hand and just enjoy.

I would set the table with the most incredible fresh flowers and plates and cutlery and just relax.
Good friends and wine, isn't that what life is all about?

So, so true. I don't know when you ever know that a new chapter is the right way to go but sometimes I think you just have to shut your eyes and jump.

I never want to be one of those people that sat back and thought about things I could have done.
Yep. I am going to take inspiration from this great quote.
