Happy Easter...

Happy Easter
Bunnies, Miss Mardi and John!


Easter has been a little bit strange for us this year as we hopped on a plane from San Francisco on the Thursday and flew back to Australia throughout Good Friday, to find ourselves back home on Easter Saturday.  So because of this, you will have to deal with a slightly belated Easter blog post!

I couldn't help but buy this for an #Easter treat!


I was really starting to get into the Easter spirit this year seeing we were in New York and San Francisco.  All the delicious chocolate stores were full of gorgeous cacao treats and windows were bright and fun.  I had a special request from my sista to bring back some Reese's Peanut Butter Easter eggs - her favourite apparently.  I found them in a drug store but while I was on the Easter Egg hunt, I discovered the product above, Fluffy Stuff Cotton Tails!  I am a sucker for cotton candy and had to have this, but I was a bit disappointed that it came out in a big multicoloured candy blob rather than the cute puffs as displayed on the packet!

Our lovely friend David had left a big supply of Easter Eggs for us to munch on (which I did so in bed!).  Included in the bundle was a bunch of my favourite eggs, Red Tulip caramel eggs!  Yum!!


Easter is coming!


We did smuggle some Easter treats back from New York too, including some pretty amazing chocolate eggs from Vosges Chocolate in Soho.  Their store was absolutely beautiful with cut outs of their signature bunny (shown above) and decadent displays of chocolate.  Definitely check out their website. 

So Happy Easter everyone, I hope that you have enjoyed the holiday with lots of treats!

Baseball in Boston...

Red sox

While in Boston, we were super lucky to go to our first ever baseball game and what a game it was!  It was the opening game of the season of the Red Sox against the New York Yankees!  A huge thank you to our Boston hosts, Bud and Anita who gave us these tickets... it certainly was an experience!


Our seats were so close to the action!  The Red Sox hadn't been doing so well lately, we were hoping that we were going to be a bit of a good luck charm for them.  We also had decided that seeing it was our first ever baseball game that we were automatically Red Sox fans.



It was pretty chilly in Boston watching the game.  We did the traditional thing of having the Legal Seafoods Clam Chowder delivered to our seats by the dudes in the yellow shirts.  It's amazing that you can pretty much get anything in your seat!  We also had a 'Fenway Frank' - a hotdog too!  Definitely a cultural experience.


And we appear to have been a good luck charm to the Red Sox when they won!!!  Our first match and it was so exciting and naturally with the best outcome we could imagine!  I even fist bumped a Red Sox fan outside afterwards too!



Maybe it was the 'Green Monster Mittens' that I was wearing that brought all the good luck?

Sleeping in San Francisco...

Foyer at triton, we heart this hotel!!


While staying in San Francisco, we stayed at this really awesome hotel - The Hotel Triton.  We loved it as it was pet friendly, great staff and everything was bright, vibrant and groovy!

Foyer at triton, super bight


As you can see, the foyer had these amazing murals and we loved the fact that the elevator was pumping with music we love, like the Clash!  Like most hotels in San Francisco, they had a beer/wine afternoon from 5pm to 6pm where you can hang out in the foyer, meet others and have a drink on the house.


Our bed in San Francisco!


I loved our zebra print bed head on our bed, there was even a matching zebra print dressing gown to parade around in during your stay.

From our window, we could see the famous Hotel Triton sign.  It is very visible when you are walking up Grant Ave towards China Town.


However in the night time, it did make our room glow red and I would have the song Roxanne play in my head.
Hotel Triton, we loved staying with you!

San Francisco Vans love...

Shopping at vans


What do you do when you just get off a 14 hour flight in San Francisco?  Well, you and your husband in a jet lag state go to the Vans store and try on absolutely everything in the store and walk out $350 lighter and with 4 pairs of trainers, a bunch of t-shirts and a poncho!  Yes, a poncho!

Shopping at vans


I love the San Francisco Vans store, staff are super friendly and really, it's all an absolute bargain.  Yep, I didn't even pack any vans shoes with me because I knew that I would totally buy new ones... and pimp them with leopard print laces... oh yeah!
