    I LOVE the cashmere top! It looks fab on you!
    Oh, and most of AH stuff are a bit too big on me (I wear sz 8; sz 6 for most other brands), and I think you’re slightly slimmer than me!

      It’s soo soft, it makes me happy, haha

      recently some of the sz8 stuff hangs a bit loose (think she’s cutting some pieces a bit bigger nowadays) but in general they fit. I’ve only had maybe 10% of the stuff I’ve tried on not fit, which is pretty good. And when they do fit, it looks like it was tailor made as the measurements are exactly the same as mine, that’s why I love the clothes 🙂

      I hadn’t eaten it in aaaaages either! It’s hard to unless you’ve got 4 people, so we were lucky to find a place that did half a duck instead 🙂

    awww i love haircuts with massages. the service in shenzhen is amazing. u pay $6AUD for a haircut, which i thought was amazing enough, but then i found out it also comes with a 30 minute head massage, then they tell you to lie on your stomach and give you a back and arm massage for another 50 minutes. then they spend 1 hour cutting your hair so it’s just perfect. i dread coming back to australia where everything is going to be so expensive!!!!!

      I really liked the asparagus in the dish, as I couldn’t taste it 😉 Poached eggs are sooo yum, and I belive they’re really healthy too?

    The first time I got a massage with a haircut was when I was in Malaysia. The stylist was massaging my head then moved down to my neck and shoulders (which I wasn’t expecting) and my face just suddenly turned beet red! That was also the first time I’ve ever had my hair shampooed while still sitting upright in the chair. Definitely a very interesting experience.

      Haha! I love the shampoo whilst sitting upright in the chair.. SG hairdressers do it too. It means my hair is so much cleaner and the massage goes for so much longer.. mmmm

    We often point out people of the opposite sex that we know the other person will like and we’re like “Oooh, check him/her out!” Haha, we’re just stupid like that.

    Necessary for a healthy, long-term relationship.

      Aww thanks! I’m actually using an obselete Casio camera, it’s really tiny, that’s why I love it. I’m thinking of upgrading to the newer model – mine doesn’t have antishake or a good flash, so it annoys me 🙁

    brunch was tad bit pricey for something which I think you would be able to whip up! no pic(s) of the AH dress?

    hope your run went well!

      Ah, I didn’t buy the AH dress so no pics, I didn’t feel like taking pics of it in the dressing room 😛 I wish I did now!

    MMmmmmmm that food looks so good! My sister and I started a diet last Monday and I would KILL for any of that! hahaha.

    Random question: Did you get a dustbag with your Ludlow?

      Arghh diets are so hard, it’s tough being healthy :X

      Which ludlow, the fuschia, framboise or the indigo? They all come with dustbags but the fuschia one is the ‘old’ style one that’s now discontinued.. the other 2 have the new style ones 🙂

        Haha you’ve got that right:)

        I thought everything should come with a dustbag, but I remembered that my ludlow was wrapped in paper.. I wonder why? I’ll call the store later and find out.. I want a dustbag! hehe.

    I’ve got that top in grey! And I bought the blouse version in raspberry a few days ago coz I love how soft the material is. Had a hard time deciding between the raspberry and the teal but figured raspberry will match more stuff in my wardrobe.

      I saw the grey top on you! It was you that made me want it.. it was sooo soft, haha.
      I like the raspberry too but Chris insisted the teal looked nicest on me, and it’ll match my teal B bag I guess 😛

    I’ve missed about a ga-zillion of your posts recently…sheeesh.

    first, I’ve never heard of The Great Australian Diet… is it a book only in AU? Is there a premise that could be explained easily 🙂 or is it very complex …

    The allana hill top rocks.. and looks wonderful on you. it is totally figure flattering… i think that waist flatters a multitude of sins 🙂 and the color is great. and all your food in this post looks just yummy! especially those eggs 🙂 YUMMMM-Y…

      Yeah it’s a book here, but I believe you can buy it online.. it just makes *sense* and doesn’t tell you to do ridiculous things like ‘stop eating carbs’ etc..

      And thanks! I really love the AH top Chris got me.. it’s so soft 🙂
