I had come straight from work so I was wildly under dressed compared to the other guests, most of whom were in cocktail wear. So I spent most of the evening trying to look cool while eating myself into a chocolate stupor out of the way of the Top Billing cameras and sipping on a glass of bubbles.
I had to leave early, which was devastating, but I did leave with the world's most incredible goodie bag. Packed with chocolate as well as a voucher to attend one of the chocolate courses the studio offers. Definitely using that soon. Also happening soon: Me going back to sample more of their new selection of Lindt ice creams.
Friday night started with dinner at Saints Burgers (disappointing) and then the Converse Take It Outside Party which was not disappointing at all. We arrived just as Desmond & The Tutus started their set and didn't leave our spot until they had left the stage. We took a walk around the party and I think it was pretty amazing. It's not easy keeping the hipster rock 'n roll kids, electro kids and hip hops kids all happy, all the same time...but I think Converse did an awesome job.
Saturday morning was the perfect weather for a walk to the Biscuit Mill for breakfast followed by a spot of shopping and my second time watching The Hunger Games. I just finished the book, and I have to say that the movie is even better once you've read it. I am devouring book 2 and 3 in preparation for the next two movies. Also saw the preview for the final Breaking Dawn movie. Can't deny the fact that I am pathetically excited to see it.
This left me just enough time for one of Terence's infamous Grape Safari's on Sunday. We went out to visit Moreson for some bubbles and lunch. The tasting was great and we sampled their entire Miss Molly range, which I love. But the real highlight for me, was the lunch at Bread & Wine.
Then came the dessert platter...goodness me. Macaroons, lemon meringue marshmallows, delicious, chewy nougat... I have to stop. I am drooling and it is awkward.
Seriously though, I suggest you make the time to visit this gorgeous farm. The wines are incredible, the food: see above paragraph, and for your eyeballs to feast on, they have an exotic plants greenhouse full of the most beautiful orchids you have ever seen.
If they weren't more difficult to look after than a human child, I would totally have take one of the blue ones home with me.
