Life Lately // Law and Banana Cupcakes

Today I got to go watch my bf Andrew be admitted to the bar. He's the 4th generation in his family to do so! That's pretty cool. It was extra-awesome because the Judge who admitted him was also a 4th generation Lawyer too.

I made him a "Dress-the-Lawyer" doll secretly on the computer last night and emailed it to him this morning at work. He thought it was a pretty neat idea!!

One of his favourite flavours of cake is banana, so I made a bunch of banana cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery recipe I posted about last week. I topped them off with some cream cheese icing and smashed up banana chips and walnuts. I sent him off to work with these for an afternoon tea shout - I hope they went down well!!

What else have I been up to lately? I've been busily sewing a couple of dresses, one at home and one at dressmaking class. I can't wait to make more!! I just bought an overlocker on Trademe so I'm really excited to receive that and keep sewing. I'm in the midst of writing and photographing a Christmas special for my blog - with gift ideas, decorations and recipes. I can't wait to finish it and post it!! (it will be a series so a bit of a multiple post-fest!!)

Oh and a super important thing - I became an Aunty last Friday night!! My little nephew Jai arrived a couple of days after his due date. I can't wait to go up to Dunedin to meet him!!

I hope you've all had a great weekend and a smooth start to the week!!


  1. woo! superduper excitement all round.

    those muffins look almost good enough for me to forget my dislike of bananas.


  2. You are the sweetest girlfriend. I hope you know that. Andrew must be really happy with your cupcakes, and your support!


    sending you happy spells

  5. Congratulations! It sounds like you're have the best kind of week! Honestly you and your cupcake photos... I get hungry every time I look at your blog. They actually look amazing! My little sister is an amazing baker (she is about to go to Paris to learn French pastry cooking) but I am unfortunately an utter wreck when it comes to baking cakes :(
