Christmas Cooking Lessons

Most of Australia probably already knows about Pastry Chef extraordinaire Adriano Zumbo via his 2 Masterchef TV appearances. When I was in Sydney recently I (rather greedily) went to all 3 of his patisseries to try out some of his cakes. They were mind-blowingly good. I was stoked to read that Adriano's running a Christmas dessert lesson in Alexandria in Sydney. Cool.

Very Early Christmas Present.....

It was with much excitement that I recently read supremely talented Australian stylist Sibella Court is about to release her new book 'A stylist's guide to NYC'. I snapped up her first book in a heartbeat so can't wait for this next instalment.

Sibella runs 'The Society Inc' in Paddington, Sydney - it's a treasure trove of striking wares from around the world for those of us who are obsessed with decorating & design. Really hoping my next lot of filming in Sydney co-incides with one of her workshop dates!

Christmas in London 1951

I do like this retro poster from London Transport that ran in December 1951 wishing it's patrons a happy festive season. I'm not sure whether our Australian Transport system thanks it's commuters each year, but it's a nice sentiment isn't it?

Christmas in La La Land - 2010

So.....I've had a few computer problems the past month so haven't been able to blog properly. So happy to be back online finally! I love the snowman outfit singer Katie Perry wore to the Jingle Ball concert in LA last Christmas (December 2010). So cute and quirky!
