The Last Hoorah!


Ok, so I know our lives don't 'end' when you have a baby, but hubby and I thought we should celebrate what may or may not be our last weekend as a two-some with a nice dinner out as our 'last hoorah'...as little Brigadeiro is due in less than a week - a fact that remains so surreal to us both!


The lavosh and bread were absolutely delicious - I love good bread, just as nice as eating cake...

The 'Spoon Tasting' platter - from right to left: oven roasted truss tomatoes with deliciously soft marinated goat chevre, grilled free range kangaroo fillet with sauteed potato and spring onion, orange blossom honey, baby fennel & wild blueberry reduction served with grilled (herbed and roasted garlic) polenta and fig jam, seared ocean trout, cajun lamb loin and BBQ Pork neck. A great way to try a little bit of each dish at this restaurant...


For our 'main' we shared an amazing Wagyu fillet - this melt-in-your-mouth steak was absolutely delicious!

Side of vegetables - included roasted baby PURPLE carrots! I had never seen them before!



I pretty much wore a repeat outfit of what I wore 4 months ago + my Burberry Mini Manor bag

Thakoon tie-dye coatdress
Dries Van Noten sandals

  6. Dear Brigadeiro
    Best of luck with the bub - I have two beautiful children and I have to say that my greatest advice is:
    keep the baby swaddled they love it
    keep noise in your house and don't do the silent thing or you will never get the baby to sleep
    and enjoy life - we took our babies everywhere and just made bed time in the pram at the restaurant.
    If you want to give the baby a dummy or you need to bottle feed occassionally so be it a happy mother means a happy baby. We always fitted our children in to our lives and not the other way around and they are really relaxed and adaptable and well behaved.
    Good luck with it all and of course I always adore your lovely food and clothing posts - you look awesome - pregnancy suits you.

  11. Wow . . . Little B is coming so soon! Or maybe not so soon for you. How exciting. I am being selfish here, but I hope you will still have time for a blog post or two once he or she arrives. Also, you've done an amazing job at looking incredibly stylish throughout your pregnancy. Kudos! And lastly, you should definitely find a way to sell your food photos! They are always so incredible!!

  12. I'm still amazed by your super-slim look in 9th month!

  13. That sounds like a delightful meal, though I have never had kangaroo (not living in Australia makes it an uncommon dish). How does it compare to other meat as far as texture/flavor? You look amazing, cannot hardly tell you are pregnant, let alone 9 months along!

  22. hey gorgeous,
    didn't leave many comments in last months although i'm following your blog regularly. hard to believe you are expecting in next days because it's not noticeable you're pregnant at all. your outfit postings are very inspiring and of a great beauty. just wanted to send you my warmest regards and my very best wishes and thoughts. can't wait to see first pic of proud mom and little brigadeiro.
