Mojitos at Los Barbudos

October 30, 2013

I'll be the first to admit I don't know much about alcohol, so when I was offered the chance to expand my knowledge whilst meeting awesome new blogger friends, I just couldn't turn it down. Nuffnang invited us down to Los Barbudos, a Cuban bar in Fitzroy, to learn how to mix a traditional Mojito.

Kuwaii x A Quirk Of Fate

October 26, 2013

Hey guys! Look shoes! My friend and fellow Melbourne blogger Vulette from Young Red Violets kindly invited me to check out the launch of the Kuwaii footwear range at A Quirk Of Fate. The range consisted of beautiful earthy tones, pastels and metallic coloured leather with super comfy soles. It was hard walking away without buying a pair but they're a little out of my price range at the moment. However, I am in the market for some good quality sandals for summer that won't hurt my feet and give me blisters, so I may have to go back for a second look after I get paid.

Julia deVille Jewellery | e.g.etal Gallery

October 23, 2013

Melbourne is a great city to explore and tonight we found ourselves down a flight of stairs on Flinders Lane at e.g.etal Gallery for the Julia deVille Jewellery launch. Originally from New Zealand, Julia deVille now resides in Melbourne and is trained in gold and silversmithing. Her current collection is called Can The Voices Of The Living Be Heard By The Dead and features intricate detailing and stones fit for royalty. I particularly loved the tiny gold skull bracelet and, well, ALL of the rings!

Mrs. Peacock In The Conservatory

October 21, 2013

I literally did not know that the Fitzroy Gardens Conservatory existed until yesterday when I read Fashion Hayley's post, and when Fran messaged me and wanted to do something that didn't cost much money, I knew this would be perfect. The Fitzroy Gardens are located on the edge of the Melbourne CBD, so how I didn't know this was here is ridiculous to me. But never the less, we jumped on a tram and went to explore the gorgeous landscaping. I also used it as a great excuse to test out the macro setting on my new DSLR camera!

Mixtape // Spring Melodies

October 13, 2013

So I have nothing to blog about. I'm sick and have been working non-stop but I didn't want to leave my blog inactive for a week so I decided I'd share with you three of my current favourite songs. 

Let me know what songs you're loving right now! I love finding new music.

Tropical Pineapple and Coconut Muffins

October 9, 2013

Before we get started I just want to let you know that when it comes to me cooking, I'm lazy and I rarely follow the recipe. This is no exception. I was loosely following the Pineapple Muffin recipe on HERE. I also have some additional changes written at the bottom of the blog post.

Listen Out

October 7, 2013

I feel a bit embarrassed putting up this post because the pictures are so damn awful.

On the weekend I worked at a brand new Australian music festival called Listen Out. You may recall me working at Parklife the past couple of years, which was one of my favourite Australian festivals, but due to poor ticket sales, it was cancelled. Listen Out is it's replacement. It was much smaller than Parklife, but it did feel a bit like a giant outdoor party rather than a music festival. However, in saying that, working there was a lot of fun.

I feel like we're on the set of Australia The Movie! Said Fran as we wandered down the hill towards the Studley Park Boathouse.

Just Desserts 2014 Diary

October 3, 2013

Yes 2014 is still three months away, but I like to be prepared. So I already bought my 2014 diary. And it's sparkly!


October 1, 2013

When I found out my best friend was planning to go into uni on her birthday, I was like oh no you don't! This simply won't do! and dragged her (quite willingly) into the city to visit QV's Glasshouse. The Glasshouse is a pop-up indoor garden and cafe right in the heart of Melbourne serving tea (or lemonade) and cake for only $5! It also plays host to a variety of other events including being transformed into a butterfly enclosure, champagne nights and Petite Green Terrarium demonstrations. Without really planning it, we managed to see one of the Terrarium demonstrations which was super cute!
