 Wearing: Gingerlilly Pyjamas Pippa Set and Gingerlilly Pyjamas Kristy Set thanks to Gingerlilly

These past weeks, I've been snuggling in bed drinking chai tea lattes, watching old kids movies and wearing warm pyjamas. Winter is here and I received some beautiful Gingerlilly sleepwear that are so beautiful. I have two styles - Pippa and Kristy and they both have a special place in my house now. The fabric in both these sets are super soft, especially with Pippa's special modal fabric which is extracted from Breech trees that allows you to keep warm in Winter and cool in Summer. The Kristy includes Gingerlilly's signature print and a pink lace top that can be worn as lounge wear for when I decide to lie in my hammock and watch Master Chef Australia.

I plan to take my Gingerlilly sleepwear with me for when I head to the Snows this weekend as I anticipate some cosy nights by the fire with my bestie Betty. I am really excited, I am going to snow board for the first time. I've ordered a new snow jacket and snow goggles and plan to hire out my boots and snowboard. I also plan not to fall on my ass when I board. But that's asking for alot as I am known to my friends that I fail (in a charming way) at many things.
For me though, just to get out to nature to regather my thoughts and to try something new and active is quite satisfying to me, even if I come back with sore buttocks.

Introducing: Zeven Lemon Beerworks (at the Good Food and Wine Show 2014)

Meet the brewer and owner of Zeven Lemon, Leimin Duong. She is a dear friend of mine, someone who I've known for years and is a proud foodie and proud beer drinker. I've always known her to be driven, smart, funny, passionate and kind.
About a year ago, Leimin announced she had decided to start her own Australian beer company, wanting to change the perceptions of the beer drinking world. After plenty of research and interning, Zeven Lemon released their first fruit flavoured beer: Strawberry Blonde.
Brewed at a perfect balance of not-too-sweet and not-too-bitter, Zevon Lemon intends to bring the best of both beer and cider worlds together. Strawberry Blonde is light and crisp, brewed from malted barely, wheat, hops, yeast and 100 % strawberry juice with no artificial flavourings or essences added.
This beer is delicious. I love my beers and I love my ciders and this is a really good balance of flavours. I was so proud of Leimin when I saw her beers being sold at the Good Food and Wine Show this year. Everyone was bustling around her stall, drinking and purchasing Strawberry Blonde bottles. I watched Leimin talk to customers about her beer and her potential ideas - she is so passionate about her product. And so she should be.
Zeven Lemon hopes to release a new flavour by early 2015, expanding their range on fruit favoured beers. Strawberry Blonde is available to be purchased online soon (sign up here for updates) and are stocked in selected bars over Sydney. Keep up the great work, Leimin!

A Bloggers Lunch: The Commons Local Eating House (32 Burton Street, Darlinghurst) featuring the Avocado and Bacon Stack, The Commons Corn Beef Hash, Scrambled Eggs and The Healthy Stack

Sometimes I have to sacrifice precious sleep just to live a normal life and do normal things. I haven't had brunch in months since I've started permanently being on night shift mode - sleeping at 7am and waking up at 2-3pm. I've been living like an owl eating my breakfast at 3pm and searching for dinner at 4am.
When my fellow blogger friends - namely Annora from Nora Finds, Margaret from La Petite  Mademoiselle and Theresa from The Ladida suggested brunch I couldn't resist the temptation of having coffee in the morning and having breakfast food at real breakfast time.

Tucked behind bustling Oxford street with a delicate white fence and plants growing over it is the serene The Commons. It feels like entering a little Secret Garden.  Inside are beautiful wood floors and tables with a rustic feel and a peaceful, laid back atmosphere.
 I ordered myself a Bacon and Avocado stack. It was crispy bacon layed on top of a bed of baby spinach leaves and toasted bread, then they balanced half a fresh avocado and drizzled it with reduced balsamic vinegar. I devoured this happily with a fresh cup of aromatic coffee while discussing with my fellow bloggers who our latest celebrity crushes are.
We stayed for four hours catching up and topping up on our teas and coffees. Its inspiring to see where our blogging journeys have taken us over the years and where we want to be led to in the future. For me, I discussed the new people in my life and how they make me happy everyday. We also discussed old friendships, new loves and old loves, blog layouts and new camera equipment.
We didn't realise the time, we were just so relaxed being at The Commons. What a wonderful afternoon. I'll definitely be back to experience more lazy afternoons like these even if I do have to sacrifice more of my precious sleep.
