Blogger Bingo

November 30, 2013

I've always said the best thing about blogging is meeting people you otherwise wouldn't have met. I think my adventures with Fran are a testament to that. So when there's a blogger event on, I love going to meet new people, and you've always got something to talk about! Nuffnang invited us to The Cullen Hotel in Prahran to get our grandma on and play some bingo! Unfortunately that's a word I didn't yell on the night because I wasn't lucky enough to win ☹ but we still got an awesome goodie bag complete with free cider.

With the release of her first EP The Marvellous Reject Girl and a string of sold out shows at the Melbourne Fringe Festival under her belt, she's now gearing up to head over to the city of churches (Radelaide) to take on the largest annual arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere, the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Tell us a little about yourself…
I am a Melbourne singer songwriter who loves to paint! I just got a kitten who is currently trying to help me answer these questions
Thanks Phoenix.
I teach music in the evenings and I write music during the day. My dream is to be a professional singer-songwriter and film composer. 

Night Noodle Markets

November 22, 2013

I have a confession to make, I really love noodles. So much so that as a kid my nickname was noodles, and my uncle still calls me that to this day. Even on Christmas and Birthday cards. I mean who doesn't love noodles? So when I was invited to dine at the VIP tent for the Melbourne Good Month Night Noodle Market, I simply couldn't turn it down.

Melko's Second Birthday

November 20, 2013

Last night made in Brazil store Melko invited us along to come celebrate their second birthday. The first thing you noticed when entering the store was all the bright colours and amazing patterns of the clothing. I was drawn instantly to this magenta coloured skirt and was pleasantly surprised by how soft the material was. We were also joined by Alice Zaslavsky of MasterChef Australia who was whipping up some delicious Latin-American treats for us!

Gotye And His Collaborators

November 18, 2013

I've now listened to Somebody That I Used To Know 1,303 times since adding it to my iTunes over two years ago. Obsessed is an understatement. Melbourne Music Week is in full swing and as soon as I saw that there was an event on featuring Gotye, I knew I couldn't miss it. This panel was all about his amazing video clips and the talented people behind them.

Sofar Sounds

November 17, 2013

As one of the musicians pointed out, there's something very powerful about a room full of strangers coming together to really listen to music. And that's exactly what the guys at Sofar Sounds created. 

Alice Nivens

November 8, 2013

It's no secret that I'm a bit in love with Alice In Wonderland, and I've been itching to go to this tea party themed cafe in Melbourne for months! It's kind of impossible to turn down delicious cake when it's telling you to eat it. Alice Nivens is tucked away down an arcade almost opposite Flinders Street Station. It's a tiny little hole in the wall cafe with some of the most scrumptious cakes I've ever eaten!

Under The Sea

November 3, 2013

Yesterday I said goodbye to Fran who, as I type this, is at the Melbourne Airport about to board her plane to New Zealand, and then home to England. But before she left, I made sure she saw the Melbourne Aquarium. Also I love the aquarium! The Melbourne Aquarium has recently undergone a refurbishment with several new exhibits and upgrades to older ones. Except they got rid of one of my favourite exhibits, the jellyfish room!
