Mid week effervescence

14 Jun

Better late than never, we head off to Crown Perth last night to see the very popular musical, Jersey Boys.

We were given tickets months ago and were delighted to finally have the chance to see this show, given that we'd missed seeing it when it was on in Sydney a while ago.

Ordinarily when we've seen shows in the past, we would book a pre-show dinner at one of the restaurants within the Crown Complex, but with time at a minimum we opted to skip dinner and head for champagne at La Vie.

 

Whilst you can't book a table at La Vie the bar was ours upon entry, and we found a gorgeous settee to sit and admire La Vie's charming decor and decadent menu.

 

 

On a cold winters night, I couldn't think of anything better than sitting in style whilst sipping Billy Cart champagne and indulging in Beluga caviar….. but it was 7.15pm on a Thursday and we had a show to see at 8….

So we sat, we sipped, we fell in love with the luxury and we left….

 

La Vie is one of my favourite spaces, combining many of the things I love, so its a great place to meet with friends for some good bubbles.

(La Vie gets busy on the weekends so to ensure your complete party can enjoy get there early!)


Onto Jersey Boys, the musical which exceeded our expectations and made me appreciate all of those old songs I've heard before.

I admit I am still a lover of the movie 'Dirty Dancing' so I was pleased to hear a few of the songs that featured in the movie!


So my Thursday night was bought to life with bubbles and music that that made me smile…..


Now for the weekend!!

 

Chinese New Year celebrated with style!

9 Feb

This Sunday is the first day of the lunar New Year, making it the Chinese New Year.

Festivities around the city are set to be a colourful celebration, welcoming the 'Year of the Snake'.

If you haven't joined in Chinese New Year celebrations before, then you might want to make 2013 your year to be amongst it!

The Chung Wah Association together with the support of The City of Perth have organised the Chinese New Year Fair which will kick off from 11am in Northbridge.

James Street is set to come alive with lion dance performances, cultural demonstrations, food and market stalls. Festivities will continue on throughout the evening and the Piazza will host the 2013 Perth Chinese New Year Multicultural Concert.

Sunday is set to sizzle in Perth, so a late venture to the city could be on my agenda with a casual bite to eat at one of the many great restaurants.

If fine dining is the way you choose to see in your Chinese New Year celebrations then check out the fabulous menu on offer at Yu restaurant, located within the Crown Complex.

Under the guidance of Chef de Cuisine Pat Cheong, Yú’s signature dishes feature traditional favourites with a contemporary twist!

Reservations are recommended so make your booking and head in for a taste of something special!

I have found much inspiration from around the city for the Chinese New Year and found some fabulous home wares and Chinese tea at Chapels in Maylands. This beautiful store imports some authentic as well as replica pieces from China and always have something unique for the home.

I also came across some floral arrangements at Flowers in the Garden in Booragoon which would be a beautiful gift for anyone to celebrate the New Year!

Rosendorff in Perth have also prepared a stunning piece of jewellery to signify the Year of the Snake….. If you love Ruby's and diamonds you will love this! Stay tuned to see this 'must have' pendant!

Happy New Year & enjoy your celebrations!

opulence is definitely the word when it came to Friday night’s STYLEAID parade!
Congratulations to event coordinators for pulling off a night to remember – the room looked spectacular, the guests were dressed fabulously and the whole evening exuded style.

I couldn’t wait to see all the designers on show but it was definitely worth the wait – and I loved every minute of it!

Here are some fave’s from the night;
