Get ready to shake and SHIMMY!
My workplace recently held their annual Biggest Morning Tea with a 1920s twist! We had gangsters, flappers, molls dolls and darbs! There was plenty of feathers, fringes and most importantly - FOOD!
There were brownies, cupcakes, peanut butter chocolate balls, heart-shaped biscuits, coconut crunchies, savoury muffins, quiches and cheese sticks. I made chilled nutella cheesecakes, which I adapted from Chocolate Suze’s recipe. They weren’t very pretty looking so I didn’t feature it in any photos, however I got feedback that they were delicious!
There are more pictures where that came from! If you want to see some more food porn or just our crazy staff pictures, visit CostumeBox’s Facebook page and check out our Great Gatsby album!

Happy Star Wars Day! For those who have follow my Facebook or Twitter, you would have noticed a few random sneak peeks of what I’ve been up to at my office.
Following up to May the 4th, CostumeBox held a Star Wars themed dress-up day. Our eight hours was spent working in our chosen characters, a BBQ lunch in the middle and, of course, the occasional lightsabre battle here and there. We even have a video to show for it!
My posts have been few but a lot more interesting. Thanks to everyone who have been following my tumblr! Your support always motivates me to make this blog better each time.
There will be a lot more dress-up days to come. Just watch this space!
May the Force be with you!
Check out all these character-inspired hairstyles!
I might ask for an Ariel next!

Meet Ed. Yep, that’s Ed licking his balls. He likes to sit next to my desk, lick his balls, and then lick my knees and hands - in that order.
Ed is the other company dog I was talking about in my previous post. He is a lot warmer to me than Cooper, however Ed likes to take my attention away from work for pets, play time, food, and more pets. Ed even follows me downstairs (and patiently waits for me at the bathroom door). Of course, Ed loves everyone so once someone calls him over (or has food) he will immediately rush to their side.
The great thing about having Ed in the office is that he breaks up routine. Sometimes when my eyes are getting tired from pen tooling or my brain has decided to stop being productive, Ed just shows up asking for pets/food/playtime/canIlickyourfacenow?
I think every office should have a pet! It’s great for stress and definitely lifts company spirits! Woof! Woof!
Although I’m not sure if cats would have the same appeal (mind you, I love cats as much as I love dogs!).
MY NEW OFFICE!
My new office home is now located in the land of CostumeBox.com.au. Yep, I now work for a company that is all about dress up! What are the odds?
As you can tell by the pictures, not much of my office lifestyle has really changed (even my desk has somehow remained the same). Of course, the only difference is THE DOGS!
Meet Cooper, a big groodle that just wants to bite stuff. Cooper is only 36 months old and all he wants to do is chew, chew, chew. Luckily he is mostly attracted to paper so most personal possessions are safe. Although we have to keep an eye out that he doesn’t do any choking!
I also forgot to mention, my hair is now blue again! This time more turquoise than sky blue.
I AM GOING TO MISS EVERYONE!
Thank you for all the wonderful things you have given me throughout my 1 and 3/4 years in the company. I love my canvas card, my pokemon showbag, the awesome smorgasbord catering and most of all - THE DESSERTS!
I apologise for not dessert photos, I kinda ate it all before I realised I had a camera in my hand.
Would you like some cupcakes?
There is no better way to serve these rosy riches than with a cute candy girl outfit! Instead of a cute red skirt I decided to give the outfit a boyish edge with red shorts and red converse shoes (with the word ‘red’ written all over it).
The beautiful rose (and butterflies) cupcakes made by our lovely Leanne! It was Aofie’s birthday last Friday and of course we celebrated it with a batch of delicious delights, boisterous board games and most importantly, some crisp champagne (modeled by our amazing Anne).
We also added an additional game called ‘kitchen jenga’. It’s no different to your normal jenga except each turn is taken in secluded goes. Anybody that visits the kitchen can choose to take a piece off the jenga tower and then write their name down to signify they have had their turn.
This keeps going until we hear the tower fall (and we really do hear it) in which everyone in the office will turn their heads to the kitchen to see who is the culprit!
We’ve had a lot of red faces going around the office because of this game. Luckily I haven’t been one of them…yet!
