She's gone and jumped the strait!

Well, as of the weekend, my BFF and partner in crime Justine is a Wellingtonian!
An inhabitant of the Windy City!
She is now ensconced, with Baby Rose, in her new home in the Wellington hills....

These pix are from a week or so ago, I think.
I made dumplings, we hung out, drank and talked shit.
As you do.
Helga cooks!
I've had this frock for years.....
Brooch thing-Shabby Chic Market
We love visiting Wellington, and now we have another reason to visit!

That must be hard with you BFF further away from you! It still shocks me seeing you in black but I love it with your hair. xx

Sue, Joe and Michael Webber said...

They should give you a cooking programme! A modern day Fanny Craddock! I think Helga Cocks is a great title! OOps I mean....'cooks!' :D

Vix said...

Lots of love and luck to Justine & Baby Rose and lots of fun adventures and frequent trips to Wellington for you and G!
You rock black, that dress is soooooooooo sexy on you, cleavage and all.
Your cooking looks so good, I wanna come for dinner.
Love you & miss you!

Louise said...

One of my BFFs lives far away from me, we just try and stay in touch as much as we possibly can, I'm sure you'll have lots of excuse to go to Wellington now. Xx

Miss Peregrin said...

Hooray, I love eating & talking shit! Any post with pictures of you & Justine is bound to be awesome. You crazy broads are amazing!

Perdita said...

OOh dumplings! Noms. :) Cooking and colours - perfect!

pastcaring said...

Well, I'm checking out your dumplings, madam - Justine's aren't half bad either! Phooaaarrrr!
Aah, are you a little sad she and Baby Rose have gone? You'll miss them being handy for playtimes, but like you said, visits to Wellington will be fun.
You look particularly naughty in the first 2 pics, I reckon you and Justine bring out the devil in each other!
Wish her lots of love and luck from me. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Rose&Bird said...

You both look fab! Hope you're not too sad that Justine and Baby Rose are further away - still, it makes time spent together even better!

Love your adventurous cooking - would love to try more exotic things. A 'Helga's Cooking' tutorial is surely on the cards?!

Krista said...

So many delicious dumplings in this post:) Happy traveling Justin and baby Rose Helga and G will be round visiting soon I'm sure...where is Wellington anyway from you Miss. Helga? These pictures are a killer reminder of the power of friendship, you two and your beautiful baby blues. I love your cleavage and your boob bling.

I will miss Justine's pretty face in your posts.

sacramento said...

She has beautiful eyes, and so do you, my dearest helga.

Hannah said...

You two always look fab, Helga dumplings oh yum! x

Every time I see pics of Justine I think she looks familiar, and I've just realised why. She doesn't look like anyone I know, but has a rather a look of Katy Perry. I mean this in a complimentary way, obviously.

You make a very photographic pair, shame she's moving further away from you. I have a few friends I see every day who I will miss like mad when I move.

Sue said...

I remember when my BFF left and moved to Wellington. She then went overseas with her work. Currently in Germany but heading home this year back to Wellington. But we keep in touch via email, facebook and phone calls and it is always like she is just round the corner. Sure you two will be the same. Planning to go to Wellington next year to stay with her and go to the Wearable arts thing, nothing like planning a year in advance!! Wellington is closer than Germany!! You two will visit each other for sure.

Franca said...

vintage_kitten said...

Misfits Vintage said...

Bye Justine and Baby Rose... I hope you'll be happy in Wellington!

Darling, your rack looks FUCKING SPECTACULAR in this lovely frock. That brooch is divine and nobody rocks a fuck-off bow like you do. I can't wait for you to cook up some voodoo magic in my kitchen!

Love you more than brooches, Sarah xxx
