After my morning students, I went to the Brisbane Art Expo at the Convention Centre. It was so inspiring! I now have so many ideas, as well as the Nike slogan, in my head. One thing I know stops me from starting something is when I have so many possible ideas and none of them is coming forward as The One. So I think I just need to start with one, doesn't matter if it's necessarily the Right One, and Just Do It.
Next to the art expo was a vintage exhibition, and once you were in one you could go to the other. It was very much like stepping into holiday houses from my childhood, stocked with the 'old' stuff of their owners. Some of the dresses and hats were just beautiful, some had such awful scratchy or synthetic material, and when we saw the undergarments I was very glad I'm living in this age! There was a Marilyn corner, with copies of dresses from some of her films. One of them I adore and would love to have... if only I had the figure...

I can't work out which would be my favourite, they were both delicious. The tostadas were like crispy tortilla shells with chicken inside, and something to do with mushrooms there too. The mole - how could I not like this?! - was chicken with a chocolate (but savoury) sauce.... yum...

It's a good thing there was a strawberry on top to turn it into something healthy :)
