Mekka Raceday...



My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions...

Don't you love a day out where you can dress up, get pretty and have a few drinks? Last week I hit up the Mekka Race day at the Doomben race track for a day of fashion, horse racing and drinking.

We started the morning at one of Jackson's best friends units with the whole crew. We had a few drinks and then caught the train to the racecourse. On the way to the racecourse, I had a bit of a mishap with my dress. I ripped it going up some stairs!! I've got to admit I was being pretty stupid and I was also a bit tipsy, which didn't help.

Once we got to the races we found our way to the track side marquee. Of course I couldn't help myself and had to grab a glass of champagne straight away! We took heaps of photos straight away as well. We all looked so perfect and didn't want to miss it once we all had a little too many drinks and the hot sun got to us.

Can I also just point out how ABSOLUTELY AMAZING MY BOYFRIEND LOOKED!!!





I wore a dress from Principessa, it is a store in Fortitude Valley. I got my formal and grad dress in high school from there and knew as soon as Jackson told me we were going to the races, that that is where I'd be buying my dress from.


Overall it was a fabulous day! Even though at the end we had a bit of trouble getting home, once we did we lay down and didn't move for hours!!

Queensland Sciencentre and Muesum Day Out...

My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions...

Today Jackson and I went on a bit of an adventure around South Bank.
Like the true science nerds that we are (lol), we were waiting at the door for it to open at 9:30am, which is probably the earliest we have been up in the entire two months that we've been dating-hopeless I know! We went in and started with the kids science stuff, it was all maths and over thinking. In my opinion, unless you are at school no one should be doing maths that early in the morning! We moved on to the fun stuff, the exhibitions that were cool. There were things like tornadoes in water, sound moving water and heaps about the human body.
We also had a look around the museum, which is three more levels of specimens and info! I think we almost spent three hours in total just nerding out.




Jackson's biggest fear is rats and mice, and you can probably tell by these pictures that we just happened to find a massive pile of stuffed rats!

Clivey's First Mountain Climb...

My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions...

Clive has officially climbed his first mountain! We hit up Mt. Ninderry the other day and had a little photoshoot on a rock at the top. It was all very cute and very short lived, because of his little legs and the dead weight named Jackson that we carried.

The Nines: Back Again...

My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions...

After a big day of shopping and driving a few days ago, Mum and I hit up The Nines cafe for a well needed sugar hit. I had been craving one of their loaded shakes all day long and we really needed a break from the retail therapy. I don't remember the exact flavour of the shake but it is the only set one, if you like the look of it just ask for the kids sized shake. Mum had an iced coffee and we shared the carrot cake.

I know it sounds a bit wimpy, the kids loaded shake but it is the perfect size. Not too much milk but still the same amount of goodies on top.

Another coffee date?

My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions...

Mum and I went on another coffee date, yes another! This time we went to Kunara and got our health freak on. We both had iced coffees and we share and lemon & cherry cake. It was one of those vegan, dairy free concoctions that tastes like dirt and coconut oil. I'm not going to tell fibs- I was thoroughly disappointed by it. The iced coffee on the other hand was great!
