Must Have. The Everyday Essentials

Not many words today, just the fashion essentials because when it comes down to it you can't go past black and white. If I had to wear one outfit everyday for the rest of my life - work or play, sunshine or clouds - it would probably look something like this...

Eat Me. Botherambo, Richmond

I’m so pleased to see that there are SO many restaurants already on my wishlist here in Melbourne. Between new openings, pop-ups and staple venues; I’ve got a list as long as my arm to try.

Richmond is a great spot that has surprised me with its offering. Last week, my ballet-dancer-extraordinaire friend was in town so we headed for Swan Street to Botherambo.

Style It. September Celeb Street Style - NYFW

Now normally my round-ups encompass three of my favourite stylistas from the month, but this month is NYFW which only means one thing in the street style stakes. Olivia Palermo. I tell you what, this girl can do absolutely no wrong.

From show to show, opening to closing party, I sifted through dozens of outfits of hers, each one better than the last, to bring you my three favourites. Damn girl.

Eat Me. Montereys, South Yarra

I must admit, this post is utterily selfish [or should I say shellfish]? It covers two of my favourite things. Chapel Street and seafood.

Montereys is relatively new in town but it wasn't long before I was casting longing glances at it every time I strolled by.

Must Have. Interiors Obsessed - Furniture & Homewares

My life has had somewhat of a change of pace since moving back to Australia. One could say, a little less party-hopping, a little more furniture-shopping.

I've found a place to call home but alas it's rather empty [i.e., totally] so I've spent my last few weeks busily dashing about town to find my ideal furniture pieces and stylish homewares. I tell you, it's quite the challenge. But oh it's an enjoyable one.

Plate Up. Easy Chilli Con Carne

This recipe is a total staple in my house. It's easy, it's delicious and it will ensure you're set for leftovers for many days ahead. What more could you want?

Eat Me. Top Paddock, Richmond

A burst of sunshine appeared over the weekend which had me skipping into town bright and early. All that excitement triggered quite the hungry tummy so queue brunch at Richmond hotspot, Top Paddock.

One Day. 5 Things You’ll Learn When You’ve Lived Overseas

I’ll never forget the look on my Mum’s face when I told her I was moving to the other side of the world. Me. The girl who never liked school camp, was afraid of flying and hadn’t been away from home for more than a month at a time.

Let’s just say it was a big step. Huge. In my case I was moving from the quaint, sunny Gold Coast to the blustery, European hub that is London. Talk about total opposites.

Eat Me. Cochin, Richmond

Hello from Melbourne! I'm busy settling in to my new city of residence. The hustle and bustle [and the chilly weather] reminds me very much of London. There's plenty to organise, I've got to find somewhere to live, buy a car, all those life admin things... But top of my list is finding the best spots to eat! Obviously I have my priorities straight.

I decided to take a wander around Richmond and stumbled upon a hidden gem in Swan Street. Cochin amalgamates two of my favourite cuisines - French and Vietnamese - so I guess you could say they had me at hello.
