Happy New Year 2013

It's been almost a year since my last post ... I can't believe it!

2012 has been an interesting year. A good one full of unexpected events
2012 marked 10 years as being an American Citizen and 3 as an Aussie
2012 brought me in 3 new countries - Singapore, Bali & Japan
2012 took me out of my comfort zone work wise which taught me a lot
2012 sealed another year with my beloved Sergio

Wishing you all a wonderful Year 2013 !

And here are a couple of new macarons photos ... I did this cake for a friends' wedding last year.

Party time!

Sergio & I went to a fancy dress party for a friend's birthday. The theme was movie characters so we went as the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Heart from Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland'
The photo of me was taken by Alessandro Riberti

Our friend Mascha went as Leonidas, the
hero-king of Sparta from Zack Snider's '300'

Miss Grace Jones!

Thank you to Annette for treating me to Grace Jones' amazing concert and giving me the opportunity to meet her. Truly a one off experience.
