Travel | Manly, Sydney

5th August 2014

Last Thursday I caught the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly in North Sydney to visit the lovely Katie-Jane. If you don’t already follow Katie you may recognise her from her modelling days on the Dixi website a little while ago. I’ve followed Katie’s blog for what seems like ages and yet had never met […]

Travel | The Grounds of Alexandria, Sydney

3rd August 2014

Warning this is a photo heavy post! I got a little snap happy when Stew and I had lunch at The Grounds of Alexandria this week. This place is so popular in Sydney with tourists and locals alike. It’s kind of like a garden centre crossed with a florist crossed with a trendy bar crossed […]

Lifestyle | Top 5 Melbourne Restaurants

27th July 2014

Since leaving Melbourne I’ve wanted to publish a sort of guide to Melbourne and it’s best restaurants/bars. We ate out at so many amazing places so it was hard to come up with a top 5 but I think I’ve just about managed it. Of course these are just mine and Stew’s personal opinions, and […]

Upon leaving Melbourne and our beloved local fish and chip shop Hunky Dory we immediately set about finding our Sydney equivalent… Well that’s a bit of a lie.

Before arriving in Sydney a few friends had recommended that we go for brunch at The Paramount Coffee Project in Surry Hills. This suburb is full of trendy places to eat and drink, and The Paramount Coffee Project didn’t disappoint. Set in an old warehouse type building upstairs you can find an old school cinema […]

After having a nightmare at the airport and throwing away 7kgs of my beloved clothes and shoes, we’ve been enjoying our first week and have treated it like a bit of a holiday. In between exploring the city again and revisiting restaurants and bars we enjoyed […]

Food | Hunky Dory, fish n chips in Melbourne

1st July 2014

One of my favourite eateries in Melbourne has to be Hunky Dory. Based just around the corner from our apartment on Chapel Street, Hunky Dory is the best equivalent that we’ve found to good old English fish n chips! Actually no scratch that, this is wayyy better than your local fish and chip shop back […]

Travel | Neighbours Tour, Melbourne

12th June 2014

On Sunday Stew and I went on a Neighbours tour where we got to visit ‘Ramsay St’ and Grundy television studios. I grew up with Neighbours but haven’t watched it for many years now, but it was still so much fun to go and see the set.  Ramsay St is in fact Pin Oak Court […]

Travel | Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne

A couple of weeks ago Stew and I spent our Sunday afternoon strolling around the Queen Victoria market in the centre of Melbourne. The market sells everything from locally produced fruit and veg, a variety of cheeses, olives from all over the world and Australian made wines.  There’s also a few food stalls serving up […]
