Dresslink Wishlist

As I'm writing this, the rain is pouring softly but steadily outside. It is a cold, cozy and rainy day in the middle of Adelaide's summer. It reminds me that the Australian autumn is near.. but not just yet. I'm not quite over summer, and thankfully, we've got another month of sunshine left. While I'm loving today's gloomy weather - (perfect for the day that I chose to stay home all day!), I've also got the beach on my mind. I've got a clear mental picture of sunny days playing with the white sand and the crystal blue waters. That must explain why all the pieces in my Dresslink wishlist come in the color blue!

Cherry Picking at Harrisville Orchards in South Australia

Did you know that the cherries found in cocktails, canned fruit cocktail, or on top of your ice cream aren't "real cherries"? To be perfectly honest, I had no idea until I arrived in Australia and tasted real and natural cherries. Apparently, maraschino cherries or decorative cherries undergo a process of bleaching and preservation with sulfur dioxide and calcium chloride and then soaked in food coloring, corn syrup and others. Real cherries taste nothing like it! In fact, here's a beautiful pair, freshly picked by myself.

Banggood Summer Wishlist

We are in the middle of summer in Australia and while I loathe the extreme heat waves, I have to admit that I missed being able to go out in just a top and shorts or a dress without having to make sure I've got a jacket with me. Browsing through #Banggood#, I came across lovely pieces that can make summer even brighter.
