"Mary er min!"

I remember when this was splashed across every newspaper in Australia and Denmark. The perfect tale of a beautiful girl meeting a dashing prince and falling helplessly in love almost instantly.

I cry a little every time I watch this clip. If only I were half as poetic as Prince Fredrik is!
I love you Mary. Come let us see! Come let us go! Throughout a thousand worlds, weightless love awaits.

St Ali's

Have you been to St Ali's for a kick-arse latte? My favourite breakfast option is the Mexican Cousin, and coming close behind it is The Hangover Cure. I mean, who doesn't love popping their poached egg on to a bed of salad, haloumi and corn fritters??

I know I've been MIA lately, but so much has happened! There are so many exciting things happening in the coming months, I can not tell you how excited I am! Everything from learning how to wash my car, French lessons, books and art to immerse myself in, a trip overseas to plan..just to name a few!
