Lessons in Pastry (and Life)

My paternal Grandmother is defying age – tennis-playing, surfing, socialising and galavanting around the world (while stocking up on MAC products for me!) She is all the good stereotypes about a Grandmother – loving, warm, generous and a superb baker.

Hello! (again)

By day, I work in a Sydney advertising agency. It is a fast paced world of big clients and daily deadlines. A world where I am lucky to be gaining experience working on huge brands in challenging industries. Industries that call for high-visibility safety gear over patent pumps and pearls.

I love events, adventures and celebrations. These things put a spring in my step and a smile on my face. These are the frills to my daily life.

So why not use this small corner of the internet to pay tribute to this? To empty my thoughts and document the frills that make life that little bit brighter! While I feel apprehensive to put my writing and photographs online  – who do I think I am, RosieBlaire Eadie? Olivia? – why not give this blogging thing a go (again!) This time, with no concerns over who sees it and judges me for it. Surely every blogger has these niggling doubts. Putting yourself out there in the public domain is scary, and does feel self-absorbed. But I don’t judge the blogs I read – rather, I applaud the ladies for being so honest, open and offering inspiration. What I hope is that someday, someone may read these rambles and recounts and feel a spark of inspiration themselves!
