One Big Fat Italian Wedding + Spring Clean

8.29.2014




Just a few happy snaps out of a photo booth!
We had a lot of fun on a recent family wedding.
It was the biggest wedding spectacle I have been to, with about 350 guests entertainment from ballerinas, dancers, acrobats, Brazilian drummers to fireworks, it was certainly very funny.
None of my friends or family has ever had a huge wedding like this.
And it was totally not our style, it was lovely to catch up with David's parents and siblings,
to dress up and enjoy some great Italian food.

Now I am looking forward to Spring, Winter has been long enough now, I want to go to beach.
We have started our Spring clean in the apartment and we starting to get back into a healthy exercise routine. I also finally took a day off, a very rainy and cold one, doing yoga at home, enjoying face and hair masks (as we speak!) and writing a little blog post.
It feels soooo good to have some lazy-ish pamper time, organizing paperwork and just getting things sorted and getting on top of things. Rainy days like this are sometimes just perfect.
Last night we also had a little time talking about our future plans, and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Hope you are all well and are excited about the change of seasons.

Planning a big day: Sydney Makeup Workshop

All photos documented by JK Blackwell at twoguineapigs
The last weeks have been pretty hectic and a little chaotic as well, while we were preparing for day: My makeup workshop.
It was a wonderful collaboration between Blog Society, Eat Read Love and I (Liv Lundelius Makeup), held at the Create Or Die Studio in Marrickville.
With being fully booked around that date I was very grateful for Dave, little Dalston and remarkable friend and super talented photographer Julianna at twoguineapigs to put in the extra hours and get all details right. Even better that the last preparations have been documented. I guess most of you know that I am a professional makeup artist
The day went super well. It was a really great challenge and I am humbled to say the guests attending were just the most enthusiastic and passionate.
I am incredibly grateful to have my little family and friends supporting and uplifting me to follow my dreams. It was a truly special time.
I want to make time for family and friends in return, as I feel that my work and ambitions are consuming most of my time. I love my work so much and switching off is something I probably have to learn.
If you are a friend reading this, know that I will try my best to be a better friend, daughter, puppy mum, girlfriend, partner ... I really do. And thanks everyone for sticking around.

I will update this space soon with some coverage of the actual event and it's amazing partners. Stay tuned!

The Weekend Off Grid

7.14.2014






Unplugging completely, catching up on much needed sleep in front of a crackling fireplace and to spent some time with each other away from the hustle and bustle was the idea.
Safe to say: We nailed it!

We stayed in the most magical little off grit cabin in the blue mountains, collecting firewood, learning how to make a good fire and keep it going, showering outdoors in the woods, and cooking warming meals, that powerful gas oven made the best vegetable roasts.
The highlights were that I was able to read a whole book and got the chance for plenty of naps. And the part I was scared about the most turned out to be the very best:
The outdoor shower! Nothing compares. Standing in the cold but sunny forrest, having hot water running over you, while watching birds. Our bathroom at home feels so boring now.
The place was simple and well designed. All the old and collected items made it very homey.
And the view was stunning. We played cards and we played Jenga. We drank prosecco and nibbled on cheese. It was the best getaway ever.

I always enjoy browsing through Leura, the beautiful little town full of cute shops and delicious cafes. Our favourites are Leura Garage (coffee & any food is delicious, David loves their pizza), and The Red Door (my favourite: chestnut&rosemary slice & really good coffee !)although we also discovered a very special place that was puppy friendly and had possibly the best breakfast we had in our lives: Lily's Pad Cafe.
Highly recommended!

We loved the time up there so much that we started to talk about creating our own little cabin somewhere. We even browsed a book on the worlds coolest sheds, and the idea of having this little escape is very intriguing. For now, I am sure we will happily return to this hut, whenever we get the chance. We left a little sad, as we could have easily stayed a few days longer, but full of new ideas and energy. Dalston had an absolute blast, as he was with us the whole time and had so much attention and playtime, he was also very good in helping to collect the twigs for the fire.
