Cookie Day

Monday almost had my beaten, but not luck for you my sneaky sneaky friend. Upon arriving home on a beautiful spring day I discovered not one but two pretty parcels delicately waiting to be unwrapped. Rather then give you a nibble by nibble account of the triple chocolate fudge cookie that arrived I thought I would best express myself through the medium of iPhone photos.

And after a run around the park in our new Snow Angels Ski Bunny Tee it was cookie-time

Then it wasn’t cookie time

A huge thank you to Coco the Spotted Cow for brightening my day with this delicious cookie. One was not enough for us! But serious this was a nice chunky, moist, chocolatey cookie which matched rather well with a cup of earl grey tea. Next time your out chewing the cud grab a Spotted Cow Cookie. You can thank me later. Spotted Cow Cookie

The kickass cool and comfy Ski Bunny tee came about from the beautiful Jenny Owens Sportaroo crowdfunding campaign. The ladies at Snow Angel helped out. Follow @JennyOwensSki on Twitter and watch her prep for the 20-14 Sochi Winter Olympics.

Champagne lifestyle on a cider budget

A little piece of luxury every now and again soothes my soul and helps me remember that the world isn’t always such a terrible place. When the opportunity to partake in a Champagne Dame masterclass in Melbourne, I whipped out my card and booked two tickets before I could say no. What a fantastic experience this was.

Very rarely do I meet an individual and go wow. Kyla, the Champagne Dame truly lives up to her title. She truly looks as if she has stepped out of a photo-shoot and into the real world. Her love and dedication to champagne is clearly expressed in her friendly presentation on the history of Champagne (both the drink and the region), instructions on how to open a bottle, pour for your guests and general knowledge.  Which is to be expected of a woman who has previusly worked for Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy Group which owns some of the most powerful champagne brands in the world including Moët and Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Ruinart, Dom Perignon and the grand daddy of champagne Krug.

THE HOUSE PERRIER-JOUËT

Art Nouveau and Craftsmanship,
The spirit of a family since 1811,
A heritage.

Since 1811, the House of Perrier-Jouët has created wines with a unique signature, floral, stylish and diamond-cut.

Two centuries of heritage handed down in the House cellars, like craftsmen jealously passing on their precious wisdom from father to son. A House of Craftsmanship.

Remember ladies, with the upcoming Spring Racing season upon us, when opening a bottle of sparkling it should sigh like a lady, not scream like a whore.ImageImage
