FASHION, FOOD, Food reviews, Uncategorized FROU FROU DESIGNS NECKLACE, PAT & STICK ICE CREAM 12 November 2006

Went shopping with a girl friend yesterday. We hit Paddington, land of shopaholics! Was trying to save money though, so only ended up with a cute necklace from Frou Frou Designs. I’ve held off a long time on the long-necklace-with-charms bandwagon because I never like to follow the crowd.. but I finally caved as I actually do really like the design/stle πŸ˜› I chose the simplest necklace, as they tend to be really chunky and odd-looking on me. The one I picked is delicate, simple and small.. love it!

We were wandering in the Markets when I spotted Pat & Stick’s Homemade Ice Creams. Oh joy!!!!!!! I’ve been gagging to try them out for ages. All their ice creams are handmade fresh, and come in a variety of flavours. After MUCH deliberation, I finally decided on his best-seller, the Vanilla Lace: The ‘Original’. Classic vanilla bean ice cream with a crunchy oat-lace cookie. It was a good choice, I really enjoyed it. The cookie was really crisp with a honey/oat flavour.. really tasty and so addictive πŸ˜› The vanilla ice cream was smooth and sweet, just nice and lovely! A fab way to finish off a (vaguely) healthy lunch of Penne with Chargrilled Lamb, Eggplant, Capsicum and Feta with Olive Oil.

    that ice cream looks sooo good! the necklace is so pretty too- definitely unique from the ones you see around the place these days so you really aren’t following the crowd. i especially love the big tear drop crystal

      I think the necklace would look nice with a black top πŸ™‚ It’s just fairly simple, so I like it!

    Coincidentally, a coupla weeks ago, I got a very similar necklace when I was out hunting for some costume jewellary from diva or equip (they’re the same shop to me) – I didn’t realise they copied stuff! Coz mine looks so similar, but all silver, down to the silver dragonfly charm, and cluster of crystals, beads and other things. Huh!
