Zoë Foster Blake, Hamish Blake and kids are in Europe the moment, and it’s apparently a brilliant cake-filled place to celebrate a tiny girl’s first birthday!
Diamonds and curls
Can you even believe it’s been a year since this cute couple’s wee gal was born? We absolutely, positively can not.
Zoë, Hamish, Sonny and baby Rudy have just headed off on a big trip together, proving that a) you can travel the world with kids without losing your mind (possibly) and b) that they have the life many of us secretly yearn for and yes please do #blakemewithyou
In celebration of their youngest kiddo’s big day, the couple shared matching cake smash snaps, all the way from sunny Greece.
“Why be none when you can be one,” Zoë quipped on a celebratory Instagram post of young Rudy. “Happy birthday, girl! You are pure diamonds and curls; we couldn’t be happier to be your backup vocalists in life.”
“That feeling when you know you hands down just completed the best year of your life,” Hamish wrote in a similar, not quite as funny, but equally adorable post. “Happy Birthday to our laser beam of pure fun!!”

Introducing Rudy Hazel Blake. Or, as she's known in hip-hop circles, the Notorious RHB. Or, as she's known to her brother, Blobby The Sister. She was born on 17-7-17 cos she's super into auspicious numerology, came in at 4000/10 on the Teeny Cute Person scale, and has morphed her parents into gooey love monsters. 💜
Of this trip of a lifetime, Zoë notes that it comes with a generous dose of Griswold.
“We’re heading back to Mykonos soon,” Zoe told followers a couple of weeks ago. “From there we head to Italy, then New York City, where we’ll live and work for a while.”
“All up, we will be travelling for three months, which doesn’t induce any anxiety in me at all, not a lick: I am PERFECTLY CALM.”
“We’ve been marinating this for years: a hefty slab of time away with our kids before they’re in school; no work, no email, (for a portion of it, anyway) just the pale, Aussie Griswolds having the time of their lives.”

This is my four-month-old son at Nammos, in Mykonos. We're heading back to Mykonos soon, but this time he will be four years-old, a touch leaner, and accompanied by his baby sister. From there we head to Italy, then New York City, where we’ll live and work for a while. (I’ll be popping into Sephora in various disguises, buying Go-To and making a huge fuss about how NEAT this OHSSIE stuff is.) All up, we will be traveling for three months, which doesn’t induce any anxiety in me at all, not a lick: I am PERFECTLY CALM. (You try fitting a family of four’s shit into two suitcases, especially when one of them is a dedicated holiday theme dresser.) (Rudy.) Oh, but I am so wildly excited. We’ve been marinating this for years: a hefty slab of time away with our kids before they're in school; no work, no email, (for a portion of it, anyway) just the pale, Aussie Griswolds having the time of their lives. No, it’s not a good time for me to be away, but it never is when you’re self-employed. (My work policy is basically to red-band to the point of exhaustion for months and months for so I can take meaningful breaks that I feel really fucking entitled to. Just like how I exercise so I can eat the pancakes and the chippies.) Anyway! Time to do another sweep of the suitcase: five pairs of sandals is too many. (And yet Hamish INSISTS he needs all of them.)
