Snap Shot.

 Loving this sun? Me too. The Garden's trying to dry out and get on with the business of producing blooms.
Opted for Old school Nanette Lepore leopard print yesterday. Here's a Visual:
 Met my friends for lunch at Superwhatnot
Lotus embraced Brights
 Last night we Tripped the Light Fantastic at a Young Person's Birthday Party
Look, just Look at all this Youth and Glamour:
A girl recognised my sparkletastic Anya H clutch and came up and introduced herself and said Hello. Hi L! Was lovely to meet you
 This morning pancakes and maple syrup were in order
 Friends popped in. Like My friend M who looked fab in blue (fed her pancakes too)-
 Actioned some non specific gardening
Supervised the alteration the boundaries of the Exclusive Gated Community
 Ate some of these. Don't panic. I peeled and deveined them 1st.
 Made a roast vegetable and Persian feta salad with toasted pine nuts to feed those who came for lunch.
 Was gifted these:
 Meanwhile remember this Shourouk necklace sourced on the cheap from Jean Brown?
Turns out Paris Hilton Stole My Look:
 Prior to the onset of Frugal Feb Mr FF bought this:
I made the olive oil chocolate cake today
It was delicious 
 And handy to have lying around because my aunts turned up for afternoon tea
 Any interesting plans you'd like to share?

  1. Note to self: Do not read FF's blog after sitting down to a pasta dinner and expect to feel as young and glamorous and skinny as the Young partygoers on her blog. It will make you feel blah. Great pix as always FF, hope the rest of your weekend is as lovely xx

    2. Before darling daughter left home I used to love seeing her get gussied up to the nines for a night out. These young whippersnappers just have the knack when it comes to looking a million dollars.
      Mind you FF you look pretty damn good as well.

  2. R's making some arancini with leftover cauliflower and chorizo risotto and i am surfing the webs and having a scotch.
    Trying to find a good movie to watch... in genre of CIA suspense.

    I always feel tall until I hang around people who are taller than me which is 5 foot two.

    Enjoy your saturday night X

  3. Hello, FF, when I try to open your blog nowadays, a warning from Google chrome asks me if I want to do it "at my own risks" because of some pernicious software that could have been sent to you by "liberty london girl". Dare not go on her blog to check !.. Have other readers mentioned this to you ?xx

  5. You have a lot of pop in visitors and no wonder as you've always got a cake on the go. Was that blue outfit what you made pancakes in?? Super glam! I made pancakes too this morning, but was in pyjamas. Unfortunately none of my children will allow me a minutes peace until I've prepared them breakfast at the crack of dawn. Love your glam outfit for the young people's party - you would certainly have been up to scratch, regardless of Herve Leger dresses in attendance! xx

    1. blue outfit is my friend M- I was in pjs and no makeup! The young people's party was SO FUN!!! I'm friends with the mum, Mr FF's friends with the dad, I'm also friends with both daughters and the grandchild is friends with my son. We may as well all move into a commune x

  6. I rarely wear necklaces I think partly because I am clumsy and scared I will break them. But now I am starting to think I need some to bring more colour to my ensembles.

    You will not be sorry you have Nigellissima. Nigella tweeted a picture of the Italian edition of the book when she went to Italy to launch it and it was exactly the same except the white collared dress was an off the shoulder number. I nearly fell off my chair because the comparison was like nun to medieval bar maid. And she looked twenty years younger.

    I was explaining to my mother about stocking up on $1 figs yesterday when she told me she picked up a whole tray for under $4. I wonder if I can convince her to visit me with a couple of trays so I could make preserves? It's possible.

  13. Oh FF, people dropping by unannounced is a bit of a nightmare of mine, not having an even remotely visitor-ready house! You do so well being able to feed & entertain them in, no doubt, immaculate surroundings!

    Got halfway through a declutter today which is worse than doing nothing. Did a Vinnies drop - they are refusing toys & books which is awkward. Of course went inside & bought 5 books.

    Made Madeleine cakes in afternoon then met a newborn baby - perfect.

    Love your look in the blue dress.

  18. I get exhausted just reading your blog sometimes! I remember when Martha Stewart burst on the scene and the running joke was "she's Martha and I'm not," so in my household now it's "she's FF and I'm not"! Always sung out in love and admiration! I do my best to keep up, rising to the occasion, and am inspired to bake a cake today. Enjoy the happy turn of weather - xo

    1. Seriously, it was the laziest day ever- I didn't leave the house except to do a bit of grocery shopping and it was all very casual and relaxed and low key. The pancakes and cake and lunch took about 10 minutes ext to make and there wasn't much cleaning up necessary! The Nigella cake is super easy to cook. x

  22. Just logged on again and the warning message seems to have gone - thank goodness.

    Just off to The Fabric Cave in Sydney to source some fabric and meet my daughter and her friends. They are all gorgeous 6' + young things and have invited me to join them for lunch afterwards. I feel like such a short thing next to them, and I used to think I was tall at 5'6".

    Will be interested to hear your thoughts on Zero Dark Thirty.

    Have a lovely day.

  23. Your friend M's blue necklace is fabulous! As are yours - the one with the green drops looks very versatile. Nothing cuter than a little boy eating pancakes!

  24. I loved Zero Dark Thirty, am now madly in love with the CIA interrogator with the dark hair and squinty eyes.
