Remi-finessencing our favourite moments of 2012

2012 was the year when…

  • Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 60th year since the ascension to the throne
  • Cheered on our fellow Aussie Olympic athletics as they won Gold medals
  • Facebook went public on Wall Street still pulling in more than 800 million users, and
  • The aussie prank to Princess Kate and Prince Williams that went terribly wrong.

Well, it was our year too. We are so grateful for the many challenges and opportunities that made us grow from strength to strength. 2012 was the year when we…

  • Celebrated the launch of our new website
  • Pulling in more than 2700+ Facebook fans
  • Cheered out loud after realising that we achieved 3 Victorian Professional Photography Silver Awards and 6 Australian Professional Photography Silver Awards,
  • Went public at an official Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) event to talk about our brand, business and photography, and
  • Have been terrible at blogging, but we’ll promise we’ll change that!

Honestly, we couldn’t have done this without the support and passion from our friends, family, fellow photographers, facebook fans, clients and vendors for our photography work. We are blessed to have met and partnered with so many talented people.

To celebrate 2012, we want to share with you all of some of our favourite 2012 moments. Have a happy new year!

Finessence moments of 2012

Travels – Truffles, Gladiators, McQueen, Big Apple, & Messi

Alan and I have got so much goodness to share and we can’t wait to begin our much malnourished blog with lots of travel stories. We hope to feed you with lots of useful holiday tips, places to visit, hotels to stay, fashion finds and all the fabulous food we ate. Thank God we did a lot of walking.

So where did we go? Can you take a guess and figure out what we did in each city?

Here are some bits and pieces I collected from each major city…

We’ve waited donkey years (lost count) and saved up heaps of shrapnel (pockets emptied) to finally travel to Europe and the US. I think we are probably one of the last couples in Australia to go to Europe. All my friends have raved about Europe, some have moved there for work and even some have found THE one. As for us, it was the trip of our lifetime – the final big trip before we settle and have little Woos running around.

Paris was definitely our favourite destination. In 5 seconds, these are the things that spring into mind when I reminisce my time in Paris – Louboutins, fur coats, flea markets, sartorial, goats cheese, stylish, Mono Lisa, mesmerising, truffles, crepes, bistro chairs, macaroons, sexy and vintage bikes.

Second was Rome – Ancient, food coma, Michelin, gladiators, frozen pizzas, D&G, cobbled stones, God, Michelangelo, fascinating, architecture, water fountains, marble and more marble.

Third was London – The Queen, Big Ben, Pret-a-Manger, Burberry, Oyster card, Alexander McQueen, cheese melt sandwiches, icy cold, English pubs, jam-packed trains and Jamie Oliver.

Fourth was New York – Big apple, all-you-can-eat buffet, Victoria Secrets, SOHO, Big Brown Bag, Halloween, Times Square (over-rated!) Broadway, 5th Avenue, Sephora, ground zero, UFC and baseball.

Lucky last was Barcelona – Touristy, weird art, pick pocketers, Gaudi, ZARA, football mania, Messi, tapas, sangrias, cured meats, olives, dinner starts at 8pm and Camp Nou.

That’s pretty much how I would summarise our experiences in each great city. We spent 3 good weeks, 4 days in each great city to soak in the culture, the language, and jaw-dropping views.

I loved every single day.

And I got to spend it with Alan.

Now it’s your turn. Which is your favourite city and why?
