High Tea for Two

I had such a wonderful day today... Met up with one of my favourite bloggers, Jemina Jakin!! 
Jemina is in Sydney for a holiday with her family and we've been excited for days about meeting up!  Sending emails back and forth and finally... meeting up over High Tea at one of my most favourite spots in Sydney, The Tearoom at Gunners Barracks.  We got some great shots here... baboomtish....

This is the first blogger meet-up for the both of us and it's like "wow! You are real!"  As Jemina said, it's surreal. From the moment I picked her up, it felt like we have known each other for ages... we spent a wonderful afternoon together talking and listening and discussing and eating and talking and laughing and did I say talking?  

Oh and of course... taking photographs.  Jemina got to see how I do my 'thing' with my trusty tripod and point & shoot's 10 second timer (my and our pics) and I took photographs of her using my camera and her fabulous Canon!  I LOVED taking photographs of Jemina, she has divine luminous skin and she is absolutely beautiful!

And yes.... she is as delightful, serene, lovely, honest, open, caring, wonderful, unique, generous, kind, thoughtful, beautiful, warm and sincere in person, as she is on her blog.  And super stylish but... she is also easygoing, unpretentious, practical and thoughtful... eg. she didn't bring any of her usual platform heels with her so that she could pack more things for her children. the way... did you all know Jemina makes jewellery?... [you have to show us now darling Jem!]

I am so happy that we met.  And that we are friends. 

Our Kawaii Pic!

Warning:  This is an image heavy post!!

I absolutely adore Jemina!  We had so much fun!
Jemina thank you darling for my wonderful gift, I'm in love with it!

By the way, regarding our attire...although it's Summer in Sydney, today started off rather cold and yucky [technical term]...
but then the sun shone through.  For us.  Of course.  J

Divine luminous skin!

Oh you two... I am so jealous that you got to meet up! These images turned out beautifully. And I totally agree that it can be such a fun experience meeting a blogger in real life, I was lucky enough to be able to do this on a regular basis in London, and it was awesome to meet up with people for the first time and be able connect with them instantly. Glad you both had such a fun meet-up... now fly to Dhaka so I can meet you, too. Teehee. :)
