Dietlicious – A review

dietlicious-1

I have always been turned off diet food delivery services – the food was over processed, the flavours were bland and there was so much sodium in them I felt they were doing me more harm than good. After a decadent winter that included far too many delicious dinners out and home made puddings, I wanted [...]

The Candy Room, Melbourne

candy-room1

I recently stumbled across the most gorgeous designed sweet shop in Melbourne called The Candy Room. Designed by Red Design Group, they painted the entire space white and decorated surfaces with black line drawings. It results in a fun and edgy unique concept store that I cannot wait to visit next time I’m down south!

Kazbah Brunch Feast

kazbah

A group of food bloggers and I arranged to meet up at Kazbah in Balmain for their banquet. The famed Kazbah brunch has been on my “to-eat” list for a very long time and I was very much looking forward to it. If you have a group of 8 or more people you can enjoy 4 courses [...]

Dear Internet, please help me find nice cushions

frenchie-couch

Hello Internet! I was wondering if I could have some help. My housemate and I purchased a lovely couch recently, it’s name is Frenchie (Freedom named it, not us). I love it’s retro design and beautiful dark grey colour. However it is looking a little lonely in our living room without some fabulous cushions to [...]

Next stop, Vietnam!

Image Source I am usually a fairly sensible person. Well, sometimes at least. When I book a trip it’s usually months (often a year) in advance and I research and plan everything to the nth degree because I am a control freak. On Wednesday morning I was chatting with the girls at work about their [...]

Raspberry Crème Brûlée

This month’s theme for the Sweet Adventures Blog Hop is Berry Nice to Meet you – berries! This theme has gotten me very excited for spring and thinking about tarts piled high with fresh berries and pavlova covered with cream and strawberries, however as it was still 10 degrees outside when I started to bake I thought [...]

Lately on Instagram…

♥ Had an amazingly decadent meal at the Fancy French Dinner Party at Restaurant Atelier. Thanks to Mel for organising!  Highlights included Marron tail tempura and crisp pork belly, Kobe wagyu beef tartare and crisp quail egg and suckling pig, celeriac and bernaise. Szechuan duck breast, confit leg and turnips and radish, and two lovely desserts - Vanilla pudding and [...]

Passionfruit Slice

passionfruit-slice1

I love recipes passed down from generation to generation and was recently sent this beautiful old recipe for passionfruit slice by a friend from his Mum. Since most of my recipes are now printed off from the internet and then hastily stuffed in my binder folder, I love coming across old faded and hand typed [...]

Choupette Lagerfeld, the fanciest cat in fashion

choupette-bag

I have recently fallen head over heels for Choupette Lagerfeld, Karl Lagerfeld’s insanely pampered pussy cat. Harpers Bazaar recently did an interview with Karl which gave us an insight into the bizarre world this kitty inhabits. Not only does Choupette have two maids and 24 hour medical care, she also has a driver too! Apparently Choupette [...]
