late night chocolate fondue with a good friend, to delicious brunch with my parents, to tasty cupcakes made with love by two adorable munchkins to just the most insane milkshake (complete with cronut and macaron) it's been a big week for my stomach. Or it's been a week to make my stomach big. Either way - it's salads and exercise for me from Monday onwards!
LIMBO - another circus/cabaret/acrobatic type show, but so different to La Soiree! Both were amazing, but with music specially composed for the show and performed on stage, this felt much more choreographed (which was all really cool). I was also impressed with the versatility of the performers - from playing instruments/singing to acrobatics to dancing and sword/fire swallowing, the same 6 performers did almost everything. Oh to be so multi talented! (and again the boys weren't rough on the eyes...)
The second show of the night was Frisky and Mannish, a British comedy musical cabaret act. I saw these guys a few years back and really enjoyed the way they dissect and play around with pop songs to turn them into something different. A super fun way to end off the day!

La Soiree. How fortunate I am to have my birthday fall right in the middle of Perth Fringe Festival! This is my second time seeing La Soiree (I went last year) and it was just as great as I remembered it. A mix of saucy cabaret, burlesque and circus sideshow there's something for everyone (well, everyone over the age of 18 anyway!). I've gotta say my favourite act is probably the English Gents... for their awesome feats of strength, its totally not because they are super hot....

Perth Daily Photo you've no doubt seen a rant or two (or three or four!!) about the development going on at Elizabeth Quay. Well, I hate to disagree buuuuuut, from first impressions I kinda love it. I missed the opening on Friday night due to hot weather and general laziness, but we went for a wander today after work and I really enjoyed what I saw. Some wider shots will be forthcoming in the next couple of days, but I thought I'd begin with a bit of a teaser shot. Happy Monday!
