New site

Hi all,

My new website has now been launched! it's still in early stages but happy finally to be posting again. Yay.

Drop by and say hello!


New blog soon.

Hello readers,

We finally have interwebs. And it's already been a full year of marriage. A bit of a fail to keep up with this blog haha.

It's crazy how time flies, busy with marriage and life in general so apologies for the quietness - I've been so into photography and most of the time I'm photographing or editing.
But stay tuned for a new photography blog which will be released soon. Can't wait to share photos with you.

Hope everyone is doing well, looking forward to catching up on blog reading.

Lots of love,

My dears! it has been a while.

Hello lovely readers, if you haven't ran away yet!

Apologies for not updating. We haven't had internet access for a while. Our world has flipped upside down while we continue to attend the million weddings we are invited to this year. It's the year of marriage, seriously. And of course, moving to our new house. Yes we are now living in our new house! too amazing and such a blessing.

So we don't have internet at our new home at the moment. Biggest problem in the world! hah. It has been a pain to try to organise it, they say it would take another 3 weeks! sigh. Whatever did we do without the internet? I guess now it's sort of like an internet ban rather than a TV ban. It sucks big time.

I can't wait to share with you some photos of our new place, we are in the middle of decorating it. My kitchen is bliss, I actually have room to fit all my appliances and there's empty cupboards....which means I got plenty of years to fill them up. woohoo! It's really weird that I take interest in my kitchen, I always used to find it incredibley boring when Mum went into kitchen-type shops but now I can't seem to stop looking at those shops. Plates, appliances, cutlery, bring them on.

I don't have many photos with me. But I thought I'd share some of these when I was up in Tamworth in June. I'm thinking of taking night classes in Photography, trying to find what my style is...I guess this takes years.

What a darling! My sister in law's puppy named Whisky. Too cute!

Brother's Wedding

Yes. I know. We haven't posted in ages! We have been in Tamworth for a funeral last week and 2 weeks before was my brother's Henna and Wedding so we have been busy flat out.

In fact, I think in the next couple of months we will be even busier, with more weddings to attend, one in Wagga and another one in Gympie. Of course we can't forget the house, we are hoping for 1 month till completion so that means, packing, unpacking and being totally disoriented for a while.

I thought I would share a few photos from my brothers wedding. It was quite lovely and he looked handsome as ever (picture a guy who never shaves and is always wearing tshirts and jeans) haha! I couldn't recognise him.


The theme was fairytale and lots of pink!

Pretty Chapel

sin, a hopeful photographer hehe

Looking forward to catching up with all the blogs, I feel terribly behind but promise to try and keep up.



House Update

So I have finally been able to grab some photos of the house. Although these ones are a few weeks old, much has been done in the mean time.

The kitchen is everything we imagined, it's spacious with lots of big drawers and cupboards. It has a bit of a heritage feel to it, but at the same time it's also quite modern which is exactly what we were after! all the appliances are in stainless steel which also adds to the modern look.

We have been visiting the house at night times after work, so it has been hard for me to take photos. The front door is in! although it will be a much darker colour than that. We chose chrome with a square edge handle, we love it.

I love the basin in our bathrooms, don't worry that blue isn't the paint! it's just white all over. I can't wait to show you the bathroom with the tiles, they look great. We have used earthy colours, with lots of ivory. We used the same heritage style cupboards in the kitchen for the bathroom, but a different bench top.

There's so much rubbish everywhere, I sure hope they do a good job of cleaning it all up.

We are expecting it to be all finished in one month, so expect plenty of updates from me.


Sorry! we haven't been around

I promise I'll do a proper update this weekend.

But it has been one of those weeks, lots of drama, lots of know... it's a classic tale of Wayne and Farrah versus the world. Thank God we have each other!

I learnt something out of it though...

No one is perfect, we are human, we make mistakes it's as simple as that. But it's hard for people to understand that, forgiveness is not easy.

I'm glad Wayne and I have each other and we can support each other through this. Love him to bits.

Looking forward to catch up with your blogs y'all.


Birthdays and Camera Ninjas.

A few test pics!

My nana in the kitchen, oh bless.

I GOT A NEW CAMERA and I probably won't shut up about it for the next few months.
It's a beautiful Canon 7D which also takes HD video. *faints*
Wayne secretly organised for my family and his family to pitch in for my birthday to help us pay for it. I am absolutely so grateful for the great family I have.

This is something I've wanted for a very long time but with buying a new car and saving up for a wedding it has been at the bottom of the list.

I really enjoy photography especially when it comes to fashion and weddings so in the next few months I have a few personal projects which my lovely friends will help me out with. I want to put a folio together, and honestly it just seems like a side hobby but I'm open to where ever it takes me.

Right now I'm trying to experiment with different styles. I'd like to create a vintage feel to the photos without having to use photoshop. I don't want my photos to look exceptionally perfect, not fun for me!

So keep a look out for my projects this year. I guess it's also pretty helpful that I have 5 weddings to go to, so I'll be a 'camera ninja' as Wayne would call me. Sometimes he can't even find me when we go to weddings because I'm 'hiding' and clicking away, I just can't help myself.


Luke and Nicole's wedding

Linda Gorringe dress - notice the tie matching? kudos to wayne.

The wedding had a yellow theme! very different.

Mr. & Mrs.

Diva ring, nails are OPI bling dynasty and my clutch from - davie and chiyo

Wayne and his brother with their cheesy salesman smiles.

Sorry we haven't posted in a while, we went away this weekend to a wedding :)

This is wedding number 3! It's Nicole and Luke's wedding in Tweed Heads which is located on the border of New South Wales and Queensland.

View Larger Map

Oh and it's worth mentioning that Nicole is Wayne's cousin.

We woke up at 3am and we hopped on a plane at 6am and were off to the Gold Coast! great start on a Friday morning. I must say we were both extremely tired for most of the trip and I suspect the early wake up call had something to do with it.

It's so funny that Wayne and I were decked out in jackets and scarves and when we arrived at the Gold Coast we thought it was so nice and warm with a slight breeze, it wasn't cold at all and Wayne's uncle says 'Yeah it's a bit cool today'.....WHAT? this is not cool this is hot for us 'Melbournians'.

For my overseas readers, Queensland is usually known as the 'sunshine' state, it's usually quite hot over there throughout the year and Melbourne is well known for its cold weather.

The wedding ceremony was held outside at a beautiful winery and the reception was held at the same resort Wayne and I were staying at which was was very convenient.

The theme of the wedding was yellow, summer, tropical, it was quite consistant throughout every detail.

We had a lovely time but towards the end we were ready to go home, small getaways can be quite exhausting.

Enjoy the pics xx

I suck at baking - Part 2 (Easiest cake...ever)

YUM! Prepare yourselves for the easiest cake to make. It's so shiny after the icing melts.

LOL "It's MIIINE" Wayne adores this cake, all for him.

Ok, what is going on? I just can't stop baking. This is my new hobbie ever since the TV was packed away.

Now, I LOVE food safari, it's an aussie cooking show and my
chicken tandoori recipe is from them as well. Last week I remembered one particular recipe and I was inspired to make it. It's the EASIEST cake recipe, an Orange and Almond Flourless cake, yum yum.

I wasn't really planning on blogging about it, but I thought it's handy if there is anyone else out there new to baking like me.

It's a very moist and dense and is perfect with a nice cup of tea.

You can watch the video on how it's made


2 oranges (I used Navel oranges)
6 eggs
250g caster sugar
250g almond meal
1tsp baking powder
Extra caster sugar for dusting before baking
Icing sugar for dusting after baking
Margarine for greasing the pan (I used baking sheets)

Wash oranges and place unpeeled, in a pot of boiling water for 2 hours. Drain the water and allow the oranges to cool. This can be done ahead of time.

Preheat oven to 190°C.

Break 6 eggs into a mixing bowl or blender. Add caster sugar and beat or blend together.
Place the two oranges into the egg mix. Break up the oranges and then blend together to a smooth consistency. Add the almond meal and baking powder and blend.

Grease or add baking sheets to a 20 cm spring form baking pan and dust with caster sugar.

Pour batter into the pan and sprinkle caster sugar on top and bake for 1 hour to an hour and a half or until the top is golden brown.

Dust with icing sugar to serve. Wayne likes it cold, so we put it in the fridge for a while.

Happy Baking xx


Cupcakes & Dresses

Over the weekend, Wayne and I thought we deserved a night out so we decided to go out for dessert. This got me excited because I wanted to wear my new dress, which has *drum rolls please*............... shoulder pads! haven't decided if they suit me or not. I don't remember the shop name but I got the dress from Brunswick street, the day I visited Rose St Market. Currently I'm loving the combinations of red and blue. It's the colours we learnt to avoid when I studied web design back in high school, but in the fashion world these colours are gorgeous together.

Wayne made me pose. It's true. "Farrah put your hands on your hips".

It's great without heels too, fun in the park before going out.

Wayne still has this hat on....I think I may need to buy a new one for him

Being silly is our nature.

Okaaay, we are a bit mushy. We were enjoying a cup of
tea and a slice of cheesecake! yum

Speaking of Red and Blue, I had to sneak this picture in. First (yes first ever) batch of cupcakes I baked. They're 'red' velvet cupcakes in 'blue' polkadotted cupcake papers!

This weekend was all about red and blue. I had a blast making them with Nicole, even though it was a messy experience with the red food colouring. Practically the whole kitchen was red, I think Wayne would have freaked out if he saw what the kitchen looked like. To his surprise I cleaned up everything straight away lol. You see Wayne has threatened once that he would sneak in a picture in our blog if I leave the kitchen messy ever again. Whatever, I'm proud of my messy baking skills.

plenty of smiles and cuddles,
