16 Whirlwind


It has been a crazy, amazing couple of weeks - or months - if I really stop to think about it. I celebrated my birthday at the top of the Hancock Tower in Chicago with friends and some fabulous champagne last week, finished a huuuuuge project at work today, got promoted and have spent too many weekends to count having adventures with lovely husband C. I couldn't help but smile when I looked back over my Instagram moments of loveliness over the last few weeks (inspired by the gorgeous Vanisha - follow her on instagram @vanishavakaoti and check out her blog here).


Out in NYC one night, a heartfelt message in NOLA, brunching in the West Village, colourful flowers on Bleecker St, my favourite new handbag and delicious colourful cupcakes in Soho. 


Celebrating my birthday with friends and Veuve in Chicago, NOLA in the evening, view of Chicago from Hancock Tower, Independence Day fireworks from our rooftop, the Chicago Bean and late night dinner in NYC.

Lovely husband C. and I are flying to Perth, Australia on Friday to visit my mum, I'm going wedding dress shopping with my sister and then we're heading over to Melbourne to go to M&A's wedding... we are looking forward to what will surely be an amazing couple of weeks. Keep in touch on Instagram @hopeinhighheels.

From New York, with love xox

No wonder you have to smile when you remeber all of these amazing things. It´s like living a dream, at least it seems like that to me. Have a safe flight home to Australia and enjoy your sisters wedding. I look forward to hearing everything about it.

Happy belated birthday and congratulations on your promotion Hope! I'm glad to hear your summer is going so splendidly. Love the pics! I'd follow you on Instagram but I don't have an account. I already have an addiction to Pinterest so I can't develop another one ;) Have a safe journey back to Perth!

I love that You are the stars picture! How sweet.

Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia said...

Aww thanks for the love Hope :) That first picture needs to be retaken with you in heels! And then you need to use Ltlprints.com and get a large wall mural done! You're going to be home, how exciting! Will you be in Sydney at all? I could meet you there if you are. I'm going to Melbourne in September :( And congratulations on the promotion! So well deserved xoxox

PS Cue have an online store now - THAT possibly made my year! xoxox

Gorgeous, all of it! And yay, for making a trip home to Oz, enjoy your time spent with family and friends. I love seeing what adventures you've been up to each post! You and your hubby will have some wonderful stories to tell you kids someday! xo K

Making Me Smile said...

You're coming back to Oz for a visit! Have a fabulous time while you're here :-) Happy belated birthday! It looks like you've had a fabulous month or so. x

I agree with Vanisha!! That first photo is one for the walls, a big one for the walls. I so agree though her instagram is to die for, but can i just say so is equally yours!! My sister and I always comment on your latest photos on there (hows that for feeling like you know someone when you've never even met them haha!) I adored the pics from your birthday weekend, and saw it got quite a bit of attention :P I hope the mag published back to your blog & IG!! I honestly, truly can't believe we miss each other in Perth. I would have loved to have met you in person, and drunk coffee (a good one!!) in the warm Winters sun by the coast. As I said on IG though - we have our meet up destiny elsewhere in the world I believe. Have an amazingggg time in Aus this trip around and I"ll be following you on IG (of course!!!!) xx
