HAPPY 2012

What a year the last one has been... From the awful earthquake that befell Japan, the royal wedding, the fashion wedding and the short reality show wedding to the discovery and killing of Bin Laden, the ending of Gadaffi, John Galliano’s crazy moment and lot's more. It has been a year of political unrest and economic uncertainty.

For Ceesie 2011 was not such a great year. Although I went to Sydney, moved to a new house, did some fun shoot and had some great and unforgettable moments I'm not very satisfied and happy when I look back over the past year.

Let 2012 be a better and much more fun year then the last one.

Toast to the good life and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you! Ti amo!!

Ceesie's favorite animal is a giraffe.
So I did some research about these chic and beautiful animals and I found out these facts I didn't know about them:
- Eats up to 75 pounds of food a day.
- Tongue is 18 inches long and back.
- Their heart beats up to 170 times/minute.
- It's the tallest animal in the world.
- Have no tear ducts.
- Have the longest tail of any land mammal.

Bye Bye Sydney

Like every good thing has my Sydney trip ended and when I look back at this unforgettable experience I'm happy and satisfied. I saw one of the most amazing countries in the world, met some great people, did some fun shoots, had the best coffee and discovered some amazing beaches. In other words: Ceesie worked hard, but played even harder. Sadly enough no Skippy spotted, so I guess that’s a good reason for me to come back to this amazing country.

Sydney, you stole my heart.

The other day Ceesie was having his daily fresh coconut in his favorite organic café in Sydney. As you all know I'm a complete and utter coconut addict and it's my second favorite drink (after champagne, I work in fashion after all). So you can imagine my HORROR when I decided to look up the nutritional details of my snack after I finished it. Coconut meat has about 200 calories for every TWO INCH PIECE. The calories that Ceesie had been casually eating every day since he got here, were scarier to me than a Nineties horror movie. Coconut water? VERY ca va. Coconut meat? NO ca va!!!

Beach time

Another thing I about Sydney , is that you're never more then half an hour away from an amazing beach. Sydney beaches all offer something different; whether it's a great beach for surfing, relaxing or watching an amazing view.
Ceesie's personal favorite is Bondi beach. Full of cool people, cute coffee bars, great restaurants and on top of all that they have an amazing outdoor swimming pool called 'Icebergs'. The ultimate wet dream for a swimmer like me. ;-)

Coffee orgasm

O M Gucci! The coffees in Australia are insane... Ceesie can't resist the delicious flavor of the black gold in a cup. The lattes, the cappuccinos, macchiatos,... All so tasty! Even when you go into the most ghetto looking little cafe you still get a divine coffee to enjoy!
Aussies, you guys go home with the award for being the best baristas in the world.
