I'm having a little go at a new app on my new phone which allows me to publish from anywhere at anytime!
I'm trying this because i'd like to use it with my new blog, which is yet to be named, but which will follow my adventures in discovering my own cultural identity via food...

I enjoyed modelling the incredible Argyro Gavalas designs with La Toriana's Elizabeth and Amanda from Real Mums and the gorgeous Simone too. The giggling going on in the dressing room was too much! Of course this was after we'd had our makeup touched up by Briony K of Adorn. Debbie Alford did a great job of entertaining us all night long as the very versatile MC for the night, her comments during the fashion parade made me feel ten feet tall!! We all, at some stage of the night sat for an incredible massage by Emma McIntyre of Handprint Massage who has also generously donated hours and hours of her time in vouchers for the goody bags, which i may add where provided by The Spotty Napkin and filled with great vouchers and goody's!!
We played a couple of party games which had some real mums down on their hands and knees pairing up socks from my very own stash of unpaired socks, which, those who know me will tell you is a vast collection.... Elizabeth generously donated a weekend at the stunning Front Beach Torquay as a prize for the hotly contested game of statues! Larna who donated some great chef's toolbox prizes made the perfect judge for the game, all she was missing was her cravat!
I managed to win the most amazing prize pack, which was one of several donated by Glitzee, it was choc-full of the most gorgeous blingy girly things which i love love love. There was so many prizes to be won on the night, donated by so many great supporters including Norlin's devine Baubles, bubbles & bags , Mother's tool kit & What can i eat
Earlier on in the evening the real mum of the year nominee's were announced then it was awarded to the fabulous Jodi Gibson, who won some great prizes of which i must admit i am totally jealous from Chef's toolbox, a cool chocolate bouquet from Better than flowers. Chris Owen from Pink Apple generously donated her 'cape' in the shape of a fluffy white bathrobe. Jodi's tiara was placed over her horns and her sash draped carefully across her décolletage
We enjoyed both Vanilla cupcakes and Devil's food cupcakes with buttercream frosting which i'd marbled into the realmums colours, as requested! Frangelico AND Bailey's Chocolate shots of which were provided by the chocolatier in Ivanhoe, were downed by many of our gorgeous mums!
These pics were taken by Amanda, but our official photographer for the evening was Sarah of Sarah Louise Photography who takes the most amazing pictures! I can't wait to see her pics from the night, I will post links here when they are available.
I have to say this, it may seem like i am gratuitously plugging these businesses, actually I am!! They deserve so much support and attention for their own support and sponsorship of Mum's night out 2010, I know after lots of hard work put in it was such a pleasure to enjoy the evening and have so much fun.

Tomorrow night is Mums Night Out 2010, i've just finished stuffing goody bags with madcow herself. I can't wait, chocolate shots, a fashion parade featuring moi and cupcakes. That's right cupcakes! Which brings me to my apoligies, sort of. I've been making cupcakes so much that i haven't had time to blog. For ages and ages! I promise that will all change now. Right now. In the mean time this is a little of what i've been doing:Wedding cupcakes
