Happy Mother’s Day

Early Mother’s Day celebration at Ichibankan, our favorite sushi joint. I love its Chirashi, with piles of sashimi on top of sushi rice. Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom in the Universe.

Dessert from Porto’s – fruit tart on a bed of chocolate!

My latest obsessions: Heating curler and Anastasia Brow Pen.

Cheers to all the wonderful mothers out there! Thanks for all that you do!

Big Hair, Little Next Door

My Easter Sunday began with the trial session with the stylist who will be helping me with hair and makeup at the upcoming wedding … and she was ah-mazing. biggrin She was fun to talk to, and completely understood what I was looking for (even before I even knew what I was looking for). She’s someone I totally want to be friends with, and I’m so excited that I get to work with her on the big day.

Special thanks to Shannon, my style guru, for snapping photos and giving me much-needed tips during the two-hour session!

After the makeover session, we headed to Little Next Door for brunch. The place was quiet in the morning, probably due to Easter, and we got to enjoy the place all to ourselves.

We split Quiche Lorraine

And I had Salad Nicoise, with a glass of Riesling. Shannon had Peruvian Omelet with gruyere cheese, ham, and wild mushrooms. You just can’t go wrong with this place.

For dessert, we shared chocolate éclair. The shell had a distinct, cookie-like crunch that I’ve never tasted in choux pastry before. I really enjoyed this, a lot!

And I can never leave this place without having its amazing macarons. Since I had no more room, I took some home to be enjoyed later.

Now, time to resume my Sex and the City marathon. I recently purchased the complete DVD set, and I have been glued to the TV ever since, catching up on older episodes. In fact, I didn’t get out of my pajamas all day yesterday, and ordered Chinese food delivery for dinner.  The series is very dangerous, I tell you.

Happy Easter, everyone!
