Rish


It's the last day of 2015 and it seems like a fine time to take a look back at the past year. For me, most of it was spent being pregnant, and very happily so. 


Fortunately I had no morning sickness, and lucked out with great health that allowed me keep spinning and exercising right up to week 40 of my pregnancy. Apart from the usual pre-natal no-nos I ate everything I wanted, whenever I wanted, and better yet, in any quantity I wanted. Could you blame me if I said I kinda loved being pregnant?

They do say that the Universe is always fair - and labour was a loooonnggg 46 hours that put this natural-birth-no-meds-preferred Earth Mama to the ultimate test. On 12 December 2015 just shy of 41 weeks, baby Rishav came into the world with a full head of jet-black hair and the longest eyelashes I have ever seen.




We're now enjoying maternity leave with endless amounts of cuddles and kisses, as well as absorbing the fact that I have a son (A SON!!)

2016 is so bright because we are now three.

New York New York on Orchard


Hello hello, long time no see! My laptop at home went kaput and after months of waiting for it to get fixed, I have finally given up and have dug up an archaic machine.

Anyhoo, let's get started on the backlog of outfit photos, shall we? This was taken one Friday evening in late June - possibly the last date night we had before flying off to New York (where we spent a glorious couple of weeks).

Watsons Bay Wedding


We've just returned from a quick visit back to Australia, spending our time between our old homes of Sydney and Adelaide. I hadn't been back for nearly 4 years and it was SO GOOD to return.  

One of the main reasons for our trip was to celebrate the wedding of our wonderful friends. The gorgeous bride L, and I first met when we shared offices in the law firm we worked at right after finishing uni, and continued to remain kindred spirits through cross-country moves on both our parts. Nearly a decade later, my heart was overflowing with love as I saw her walk down the aisle to meet her beloved under the fig tree by the picturesque Watsons Bay. Just before hail pelted down on us.
