Camberwell to Balaclava

Some lovely friends are in town so we headed out early yesterday to Camberwell Markets. Mmmmm, donuts for breakfast.

From there we went out to Balaclava, where we stocked up on bakery treats and the best ever bagels. Balaclava has a huge Jewish community, so they know their stuff when it comes to all things 'bagel-y'.

Then it was off to Elwood for a coffee stop by the beach. It was freezing though, so coffees were consumed old-person-style sitting in the car.

Kerr blimey

Maranui Cafe in Lyall Bay, Wellington is one of the best places ever, and look: Miranda Kerr goes there! Kerr goes Kiwi, photographed by Orlando Bloom, details the couples time spent in New Zealand's capital while Orlando filmed the upcoming Hobbit film.

I lived in Wellington while the Lord of the Rings were shooting. It's such a small place that everyone there has stories about their brushes with the celebs. Mine is that Elijah Wood came into the cafe I worked at and I made him a cappuccino! This has been re-enacted by me a zillion times since.

Spring Things

It's not quite Spring time yet, but after an eyeful of all this colour you might feel like it is!

Pottery & borscht

I bought home some of my first pottery items the other day - pictured above is only about half of what I have. To celebrate and break them in, I made a huge batch of borscht, my favourite Winter soup.

Happy Birthday Madonna

This totes fierce Madonna moodboard was on the dazed digital tumblr, which informs me that today is Madonna's birthday! The collage was created by the magazine's Senior Fashion Editor as research for their August 2008 Madonna cover issue. This was when her album Hard Candy came out, which I didn't get into that much, though I still listen to Hung Up all the time.

Get a look

"When I was young there were beatniks. Hippies. Punks. Gangsters. Now you're a hacktivist. Which I would probably be if I was 20. Shuttin' down MasterCard. But there's no look to that lifestyle! Besides just wearing a bad outfit with bad posture. Has WikiLeaks caused a look? No! I'm mad about that. If your kid comes out of the bedroom and says he just shut down the government, it seems to me he should at least have an outfit for that. Get a look!"

CERES Saturday

Before I started my pottery class on Saturdays I was a regular at CERES market and shop. There was a break between pottery terms this weekend so it was nice to go and visit CERES once more. I'd been missing it!

There's a lot going on at CERES, which stands for Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies. As well as the shop and market there's the sprawling urban farm, community education and environment centres, an awesome plant shop and nursery, and a cafe, where we had some delicious breakfast. And there's always lots of good dogs there.

My first daffodil sighting! A sign that Spring is just around the corner. Also: BLOSSOM.

This is part of what I bought. Everything at the shop is in bulk so you need to bring your own jars and bags to fill up. The first time I went to the market I forgot to bring my reusable shopping bags - oh the shame!

I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing when I was filling up the quinoa - I accidentally mixed in some red quinoa that I wasn't going for. The perils of self service.

Moonrise Kingdom Day

Tonight I am going to see Moonrise Kingdom. It's screening as part of MIFF, and it's sold out bishes! I have learnt from past MIFF experiences that anything popular will sell out lightning fast, so I bought my tickets the first day they were on sale, and have been feeling pretty smug ever since (although the film is going to be out in Australian cinemas in a few weeks anyway). It takes a while for non-blockbustery films to reach us downunder,  so I've already just about overdosed on Moonrise Kingdom imagery. Still excited to see it however! And I have been enjoying these photos of the cast while not in character, from the film premiere at Cannes, and of Kara Hayward and Bill Murray for Harpers Bazaar.
