Wishful Thinking

Bad blogger doesn't even begin to describe my neglect over this project over the past few months. What more can I say but a big fat SORRY! I love my blog, I love my readers, and I don't want to stop blogging. I'd love to think I can maintain it as often as I used to, but reality is life is catching up and getting more hectic. Although I don't think I can post as often, Im holding on to this little corner because it still serves as inspiration and, strangely, motivation. 

And to get things going, although it's already a month into 2014, Happy New Year people!! I partied my way into 2014 at the notorious Razzmatazz (huge-ass club) in Barcelona, dancing like a brain-dead monkey on drugs. Time of my life to say the least.

In fact, those of you who follow me on Instagram or even previously on my blog, would know that I spent the last month in Portugal, Morocco and Spain. I can't express how amazing the trip was, but I'll be putting a few photo-diaries up just to share some of the beauty and good times ;). 

Actually, in a couple of days I'll be embarking on my second European adventure this year! So the fun times don't stop!! And yes, I'm hopefully going to get some blogging done (on my new Macbook Pro yeh!). Looking forward to sharing it all with you :D.

And just a peak at how composed we were at midnight on new years, before the brain-dead monkey partying began =P

Shake Your Money Maker

I'm a big fan of glitter. I go crazy over chunky glitter polishes mostly since they make your nails look like jewels hanging off your hands. When I saw a couple of swatches of Deborah Lippmann's Jewel Heist Collection I couldn't resist forking over the moolah for the prettiest of them all, Shake Your Money Maker.





Totally in love!!

Thank You

I just wanted to say a quick (but ginormous!) THANK YOU to everyone who made Eesh Wardrobe a success!! 


It was busy from the get go, and I was only left with 1/2 a rack, so great success!! I was really lucky as the weather held out till about 2pm, it was actually sunny! I've never actually been to Glebe Markets before so it was great to see what other things the market had to offer. And can I just say that the food on offer is spectacular, just the thing to hit the spot while trying to sell a million things at once. 

Once again thank you to my lovely minions for helping out on the day and thank you everyone for your support and kind words, it means alot =D. I will no doubt be holding another one next year since this one was so much fun!

=D =D =D xxx

Eesh Wardrobe

Hello there, long time no see! I know I should have posted much earlier, but it was time to take a break from blogging for a while as I had more important things to take care of over the past month or so. But I have been checking back every so often, and replying to emails so thank you for that :). I'm not sure when I will get back into more regular blogging since the next couple of weeks will be quite hectic as I tie up loose ends before I head overseas in December, but I'm hopeful I can post a few times before then.

In the meantime, to anyone and everyone in the Sydney area, I'm selling a whole load of my wardrobe after cleaning it all out since my room (and house) are undergoing renovation (yay!). So if interested in grabbing a bargain, and I mean this in the truest sense (el cheapo!!), head down to Glebe Markets this Saturday 16th and check out my stall, Eesh Wardrobe!


I'm selling old, new, things with tags still on, shoes, clothes, jewellery, bags, popular brands - Witchery, Sass & Bide, ASOS, Topshop, Sportsgirl, H&M, Glassons, Miss Shop, Jag and loads more!!!

SO come check it all out at stall D35 from 10am-4pm...

Glebe Markets

Marshmallow


I've been accumulating different shades of lighter whiter hued polishes recently. My newest addition is Essie Marshmallow, nearly the whiteness of paper, just a tad bit off. I'm yet to experiment with any nail-art, and It's so tempting as these soft white tones are like a blank canvas.

Twist, Lick, Dunk


Oreos, the quintessential snack of the under 18's. Arguably one of the best indulgences of the adult population. Oreos take me back to my tween years, back to sleepovers at my best friends house when I lived overseas. I remember once she sneakily brought over a pack, just in time to open them while we watched Lindsay Lohan and her "twin" do the same in Parent Trap. Hahaha good times.

I found this recipe off one of my fav food blogs, Brown Eyed Baker. I'm pretty sure her version features an Oreo that is crumbly and flaky just like the original due to the constant freezing/re-freezing of the dough. I chose to omit this because I wanted something a bit more doughy and softer, so I cut down the freezing steps. The result was SO good, I literally could not stop eating these. By all means try the original if you like the crunch of the original Oreo, pretty sure they taste the same =).

Homemade Oreos
Adapted from the Brown Eyed Baker

Ingredients

For the Dough
2 cups flour
½ cup cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
250g unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Filling
75g unsalted butter, at room temperature
55g margarine
2 cups sifted icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract


Method
1. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.

2. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, then beat in yolk and vanilla. At low speed, mix in flour mixture in 3 batches just until a dough forms. Divide dough in half and form each piece into a 6-inch square, then chill, wrapped in plastic wrap, until firm, 2 to 3 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 180C (350F). Line two baking sheets with baking paper or silicone baking mat.

4. Roll out 1 piece of dough between sheets of parchment paper into a 14x10-inch rectangle (1/8-inch thick). Cut out as many rounds as possible with a 2-inch fluted or round cutter, reserving and chilling scraps, then quickly transfer cookies to a buttered baking sheet, arranging them ½ inch apart. (If dough becomes too soft, return to freezer until firm.) Repeat with remaining dough.

5. Bake cookies until baked through and slightly puffed, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on sheet on rack for 5 minutes, then transfer to rack to cool completely (cookies will crisp as they cool).

6. To make the filling, beat the butter and margarine together at medium speed until combined and smooth. Reduce the speed to low and gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla. Increase the speed to high and beat for 2 to 3 minutes until the filling is light and fluffy.

7. To assemble the cookies, place/spread a heaping teaspoon of filling onto the flat side of one cookie, then top with another to make a sandwich. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.



Enjoy =D xx

#yolo

Eeek!! Omg I can't believe my last post was a whole month ago. Well, I can, since the past month has been so hectic I just did NOT have time to blog whatsoever. So, APOLOGIES to my regular readers! Hopefully I can up the post-count before the year ends =P.

I have been busy indeed, juggling two jobs and uni has tested my multi-tasking abilities to the limit. Add a social life, or lack-thereof, on-top of that as well as some other (exciting) things, and you get the a snapshot into my life lately. However I have been Instagraming as regularly as I can (@eesh_89), which is pretty much like speed-blogging eh ;P. 

Anyways, on to the more exciting things that have been going on! I have officially booked my epic European odyssey for the end of this year and onto to 2014!! I'm SO EXCITED!! It has been so fun organising and finally booking everything - it's made it all so real (and made my bank account looking quite forlorn). I was a bit sceptical about going away for so long, but I figured I might as well take the leap and do it all while I'm young (insert #yolo). 

So, my 3 month itinerary looks a bit like this - Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Switzerland and England! Phew! Just looking at all of them listed makes me excited. I think the things I'm most looking forward to are spending my birthday in Morocco and New Years in Barcelona =D. I'm ecstatic to be spending winter in Europe with one of my good friends, I love how Europeans embrace Christmas, so different to our Summer version here in Oz.

And if anyone has any suggestions on things to see/do I'd be more than happy to take them on board! I'm hoping I'll be able to blog while overseas, I'd love to share the experience!

Well, hopefully I can get back into blogging regularly since things have calmed down a bit. Although I might not have that many fashion posts to go up since I'm such a miser these days saving for this trip =P clothes are strictly off the spending essentials list. Knowing me and my friend this won't last long. But I will try!! 

ME IN 3 MONTHS!!

Ahh missed you guys!

=D xx
