One of the main reasons I’m currently in Sydney is to celebrate my Aunties 70th birthday! On Saturday family gathered at Sicilian in Parramatta to eat, drink and celebrate. It was such a great day, I adore spending time with my family, but seeing as I live in a different state, it doesn’t happen much.

The restaurant was amazing, not just the food, but the decor. I didn’t really take many pictures of the food as I was too busy enjoying it! I had the Pollo Miranda (Chargrilled marinated cornfed chicken breast rested on seasonal greens & rustic mash finished with an avocado infused white wine cream sauce)

This necklace was a sale score, I was eyeing it for ages, but ended up buying it for like 80% off! I love wearing this sheer top over bodycon dresses. It works great for days when I’m not so confident rocking my VBO, especially after a 3 course meal!70th-004

Outfit of my Melbourne Birthday Party #natatreeturns30

Yesreday was my birthday and I had a pretty laid back day. I thought i’d share the outfit I wore on Sunday. As usual, Melbourne turned on its dreary weather for the day my Melbourne lunch was on. It was drizzly but thankfully not too cold. I was lucky my friends picked me up and took me to the restaurant so I didn’t have to battle public transport in this weather.

I really had no idea what to wear and it was a spur of the moment decision this morning. This was the 2nd dress I tried on and decided it worked well with my new hair colour. It’s also quite thick so it’s rather warm.

I paired it with grey stockings (which I’ve been wearing more then my black stockings, it’s nice to break up some of my black outfits with a touch of grey and they go with everything!) and my trusted comfy boots. I would have worn prettier shoes had the weather been nicer. I’m going to be so sad when these boots die, they are my second pair and you’re all probably sick of seeing them by now!

Eyelashes for days!! I’m getting slightly better at applying falsies, I did buy one of those eyelash applicators but could I find it today? Nope. These ones are pretty huge and OOT, but I love them. These are the Katy Perry Oh My by Eylure if you’re wondering.

Melbourne Birthday Lunch at Naked for Satan #natatreeturns30

Yesterday I celebrated my 30th birthday early with a scrumptious lunch at Naked for Satan. When I originally decided to do something for my birthday, I was tossing up between lunch, dinner or drinks. In the end, I went with what suited me as a homebody who doesn’t really drink and settled with a Sunday lunch at a place with good food and drinks.

I’d been to Naked for Satan twice before, once for dinner at Naked in the Sky (which is where we had lunch) & for lunch downstairs with their pintxos. Both were delicious previously and I wasn’t let down with yesterdays offerings!

This place isn’t the cheapest, but it’s certainly worth the money. We had 8 dishes, shared between two people, plus drinks for just under $180. Let me tell you, I had to come home and have a bit of a lay down because I was SO FULL. I’m talking twin food babies.

My bff’s Kayley & Nick enjoyed the day with me and my partner! Be sure to head over to Kayleys blog to check out her review HERE.

I’m all trying new food & I tend to say I’ll try most things once. The beef tartare was… interesting! It’s essentially raw beef. I wasn’t a huge fan but I think it was mind over matter. I didn’t hate it, but it’s not something I’d go out of my way to eat again. At least I can say I tried it!

I’ve only recently gotten into eating more prawns. I have a slight allergy to (crustacean) shellfish, but I’ve been building up a bit of a tolerance & find if I don’t have to touch the shell I’m good!

Not shown was the half dozen Oysters that I ate before getting pictures because oysters are my favourite food ever, and the Charcuterie Board. The drink you can see me proudly showing at the top of the post was called ‘I’m all over the Pavlova’ and was Passionfruit Vodka, Butter Vodka, Vanilla Galliano, Sugar, Egg White, Lemon and Passionfruit Pulp. It was delicious!

Naked for SatanI didn’t get naked, but the recommendation amused me!
