Family. Life. Love. FOOD.
i really wanted to share with you some photos from Penny and Sven’s engagement party. it was a really fun night, but most importantly, the flowers were out of control, like, so beautiful. and aunty fil’s cake was also to die for.
aren’t flowers ridiculous? it makes me extremely happy to think that such beautiful things grow in my backyard.

hi. so there was a great part of my friday. i went to the city and caught up with my friend dave, and we ate great food and took photos as the day turned goregously sunny. firstly was sushi at aisuru in northbridge. i love firstly how black and white the space is, but also how they include trendy new flavours in to the sushi that make it a crafty blend of modern and traditional jap. this was followed by some photos in alleyways and other curious spaces (thank you, david). and finished with some chai and cookie at venn. a place i’d heard of but never been to. it’s a crazy hybrid empire of homewares, food, drink and art, which really impressed me. above you can see me instagramming a photo. something i seem to be brilliant at. instagram. if you’re interested, my user name is simply danielleosullivan. i’m pretty darn good at updating that thing.
so i’ve realised that many things i put on my blog tend to be ‘blog outfits’ where i don’t include my absolute every day wear items. so here’s a little taste of how i tend to look most days. i could live in jeans and converses. and fun tshirts are just fun. also i’m trying out a new way of telling you what i’m wearing. instead of including it in my word jungle i will make it loud and clear at the top. also will include links to these various garments wherever i can.
jumper: Country Road
shirt: Dolce and Gabbana
necklace: Poppy Lissiman
these are a few photos from this restaurant we visited in sydney in surry hills. it was out of control cool. an awesome blend of modern and old-time art, and super eclectic style. i kiiind of feel that’s how my outfit it working also. with the plain cream knit, and the vintage-y lace blouse, then the old gold coloured coin necklace. it’s a cocktail of classic and groovy. and, like i do best, it’s short to the point that you almost question if i’m wearing pants. but i am. don’t worry. i’ve not yet left the house with no pants. mmm. always manage to bring it back to the length of my garments. which i essentially have full control over, as it’s me, conversing with myself here. and that’s where i have to tell myself to stop with the word vomit and move on to more relevant topics…
on that note. my jumper is country road, blouse is dolce and gabbana, and necklace is poppy lissiman. i actually bought it for maddy as a birthday present, but i think i secretly bought it for myself. the food here was delish. thanks dave for trying to capture the moment as i made no hesitation to get straight in to eating. rach and i also went to their sister type restaurant called manly wine, in manly. no surprises there. and once again we were swept in to a fantasy world of the past, present and future merged with good food and friendly people. so a great experience over all. one minor detail, however, managed to create a little paranoia for my friends and i, okay, well just me. there were stuffed peacocks on the roof with extravagant tails heading toward diner’s heads, and really, it was just. ugh. at one point i noticed the sly thing with it’s head turned in my exact direction. and that’s when i took deep breaths and told myself it was only fake, and that the chance of it coming alive and swooping by my ears was probably only like, 20%. so things got better. and we ate and were merry. the end.
