Life, as seen on instagram

So all of a sudden it’s July and I haven’t updated my blog in bloody ages. Again. Sorry about that. It may please you to know, however, that I have been quite prolific on my new instagram: @awesomefrances. (Because apparently the tumblr, the other tumblr, the twitter, the facebook, and the pinterest weren’t enough.)

I never quite understood the appeal of instagram, but it turns out that was purely because I had a crappy phone. Once I upgraded to a handset that can actually actually take a clear photo AND cope with the instagram app without crashing, I turned into an insta-freak. Here’s what I’ve been up to over the past six weeks:

Frenchy themed feast to celebrate le Tour. The Boyfriend made the braised beef cheeks on the left and I made the poached pear and hazelnut clafoutis on the right.

OoTD No. 26 – Happy New Year!

Another year, eh? That means I’m (over)due for the inevitable 2011 recap! Last year I:

Bring on 2012. Onwards and upwards, I say.

On New Year’s Eve, the Boyfriend and I went out to dinner to Ms G’s. (Lightning quick review: Good, but several dishes are similar, and inferior, to dishes at other inner Sydney restaurants. Their mini bánh mì isn’t as good as Gardel’s pulled pork sliders. Their xo noodles aren’t a patch on Duke Bistro‘s.) After returning home to grab supplies, we went to nearby Sydney Park to get a panoramic view of the fireworks with a packet of glow-in-the-dark jewellery, a box of sparklers, and a bottle of fancy French perry (which I much prefer to champagne). Lovely.

This necklace is the best purchase I’ve ever made. It’s a wee bit exxy (£123; those colourful gems are Swarovski crystals) but – no exaggeration – it/I receive compliments every single time I wear it. It is absolutely spectacular.

Dress: Jibri – custom made (I’m between size 1 and 2). Old collection.
Necklace: Tatty Devine. Currently available.
Bag: Broadway Betty. Vintage.
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Uniform Glitter from Solestruck – size 10. Old collection.

On New Years Day, we invited a few mates over for a barbecue lunch at ours (BECAUSE WE HAVE OUR OWN FLAT!) before heading to a nearby warehouse party. This is my perfect dancing outfit: baggy top, stretchy leggings, lightweight accessories and high top sneakers.

I’ve loved this Anna Scholz print for months. Seeing these amazing leggings on sale was the kick in the arse I needed. TIGHTS AS PANTS FOR LIFE.

Tshirt: Sportsgirl – size large. Old collection.
Leggings: Anna Scholz – size UK18. Old collection.
Sneakers: Converse Lady Weapon from Asos – size 8. Old collection.
Fat necklace: Fancy Lady Industries. Old collection (though Natalie restocks them periodically).
Watch: TW Steel. Similar styles available.

How did you ring in the new year?
