August Rewind

by cecylia on August 31, 2012

Is it just me, or did August fly by? One moment I was busy juggling, and the next I finally reached some sort of equilibrium. It still feels like yesterday when I wore this outrageous top Leeyong gave me and hosted an intimate dinner soiree for my besties, attended the relaunch of David’s Restaurant in Prahran where I reminisced childhood days and dishes in Shanghai, joined Zara as they opened their second celebrated store in Chadstone, and indulged in my very first La Mer facial.

This week I showcased 3 videos: my very first V-log post about shoes, the exclusive interview of a Melbourne label you have to know, A Part Of Me (above), attended Fashion Exposed as one of their Media partners (see my interview with them here),

And thirdly this video: last week I was flown up to Sydney to attend Ecco’s World’s Longest Catwalk, and then replenished the calories walked off by a memorable lunch at Black by Ezard (above). Did you see the melting chocolate ball that still haunts my sweet dreams?

My taste buds were gratified at La Dolce Italia, the annual Italian cultural festival, and my visual sensors were heightened by the incredible art works showcased from Howtan Re (see above). In one day, I devoured an entire jar of Passionfruit Butter by Sally McNally, because its heavenly flavour completely destroyed my self-control. I mingled with socialites (see below) at the charity lunch hosted at Circa for Prahran Mission whilst we gazed upon beautiful models decked in Madam Virtue splendour.

For the first time in my life, I translated a wedding service for a pair of amazing friends in Mandarin, the catalyst for making this blog bilingual. And on the right, the incredible Adolfo Dominguez gown that I depicted in black and white, much to the shock and horror of my great friend and photographer Karen Woo :) (sorry Karen!)

And last but not least, I’m about to give away this beautiful Warehouse dress and a pair of Tom Gunn shoes in this competition! The winner will be picked in less than 48 hours! [Enter Now To Win]!

I’m heading to the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Opening Gala tonight and spending the rest of the weekend vetting. What are you up to this weekend?

这个月过得好快啊,你觉得吗?感觉好像才是昨天我穿了Leeyong 送给我的夸张红色上衣,请了好朋友们来吃晚餐,参加了David餐馆装修过的开幕, 在那里, 我怀旧小时候的回忆和最爱吃的上海菜。你可能记得我去了Chadstone ZARA的开张和我的一次LaMer的美容享受。

这个星期我放映了三步录像:我的第一步录影博客,关于鞋子;第二,与一对既可爱又有天分的墨尔本设计师 A Part Of Me (译:我的一部分)的采访(这也有一篇我和 Fashion Exposed的采访,关于我怎样从兽医成为服装博客者);第三,上个星期我飞去悉尼参加了Ecco鞋主办的‘世界上最长的猫步记录’,你有没有看到我在录像里采访?走好路后,我们品尝了悉尼著名餐馆Black by Ezard的美味中餐。在此,我摄影了一顿精彩的甜点。。。

八月份,我经历了典型意大利的风味,欣赏了 Howtan Re的艺术品展览。有一天我吃了整整一罐 Sally McNally作的西番莲酱,甜点是我的弱点。我穿这条裙子参加了Circa 的 Prahran Mission中餐,你有没有看到许多漂亮的模特?

我去过很多婚礼,但这个月的婚礼是我第一次当翻译,因此一个月前,我的博客成为了双语,为了练习我快要消失的中文。右边是我从Adolfo Dominguez 借来的晚礼裙,为大家和好朋友Karen Woo拍摄的一些照片。对不起Karen我将它们变成了黑白的!

最后你们还记得我的博客和英国时装品牌Warehouse和澳洲鞋牌Tom Gunn 将送给一位读者一条漂亮的裙子和你最喜欢的鞋子!别忘记到这里来参与!二天内我们会公布谁是优胜者!

这个周末你做什么呢?今晚我会参加墨尔本春季服装节的开幕典礼, 然后整个周末我得作兽医:)我们星期一见!
