HOT: Sweet Studio Pop Up Store, Careers Australia Building, 196 Flinders Street, Melbourne

‘Sweet studio’. For someone with a huge sweet tooth like me, I don’t think there are words more exciting  (except maybe ‘all you can eat dessert buffet’). UK expats Ian Burch and Darren Purchese specialise in pastries and desserts and they are opening up a dessert only store in South Yarra in April. While that […]

HOT: Twestival Melbourne 2011, STREAT, Donkey Wheel House, 673 Bourke St, Melbourne

Gosh, remember way back in August 2009 when I joined ‘Twitters’?

I immediately fell in love with the tiny colourful shop and the adorable aesthetic of their clothing and accessories, especially their ‘I love….’ […]

HOT: The Farm Cafe, Collingwood Childrens’ Farm, 18 St Heliers St, Abbotsford

The Farm Cafe is the ultimate location for relaxed open air dining. The sweetly rustic eatery is located in the bucolic surrounds of the Collingwood Childrens’ Farm […]

Portabello Bride Boutique Wedding Market giveaway

On Sunday it was my one year wedding anniversary and RM and I had our first baby-free evening out, although we still had dinner at the parent-friendly hour of 6:30pm. Thank you Kat’s Cakes for our unexpectedly large one year […]
