Drinks & Lunch at Coogee Pavillion – Coogee Beach

Want to take a visit to the most popular place in Sydney at the moment? The rooftop at Coogee Pavilion opened just before the end of last year, just in time for Sydneysiders to enjoy its open-space beauty during the summer. Having visited the lower ground of the Pavilion earlier in the year (check out […]

Abode Bistro – Parkroyal Darling Harbour

It’s rare that I head out to lunch on a Saturday. I generally keep them reserved for running errands, catching up on my blogging, getting outdoors or for going shopping. This Saturday we mixed it up a bit and headed to Abode Bistro for lunch. The restaurant has just received a multi-million dollar fit out, and […]

Coogee Pavilion – Coogee Beach

Now that summer is only a season away, it is time to make the most of the good weather..& this is exactly what we did last Monday. All of a sudden, out of the dreary rain, we were welcomed with a beautiful day, which could only be spent by the water. Chucking on a skirt […]

Nomad – Surry Hills

Another weekend has come and gone, but thankfully this one has welcomed us into SPRING! I am so excited for the weather to start heating up, for the fruits of summer to grow and the smell of sunscreen and salt water to fill my weekends. I have a really busy few weeks ahead so I […]

The Boathouse – Palm Beach

Happy Saturday lovelies!! I have a quick post with some smile-happy pictures today. Two weeks ago we headed up to Palm Beach on a sunny Sunday. We stopped for lunch at the Boathouse, which I have blogged about previously, but from the Boathouse in Balmoral Beach. Having the same owners, the overall concept is the […]

Hunter Valley – NSW – Food & Travel Diary

This time two weeks ago, I had just come back from our quick, one night trip to the Hunter Valley. I had never been before and thought we should make the most of the weekend and get out of Sydney. We left early on Sunday morning, with the drive taking about two and a half […]

The Potting Shed at The Grounds – Alexandria

On the weekend, there is nothing that I enjoy more than brunch or lunch at one of Sydney’s wonderful cafés or restaurants. In recent years, there has been an abundance of new places opening that have put many small and local suburbs on the food eating grid. I’m talking about the likes of Cornersmith in […]

Bloodwood – Newtown

To bring the weekend in with style, our night took us to Bloodwood in Newtown, a restaurant that I have wanted to visit for quite some time (it’s on the Bucket List). After seeing that they were appearing at the Taste Food Festival this weekend, I thought it was better to get in and taste […]

Le Paris Go Cafe – Bondi Beach

Happy Sunday morning to all. Why is it that the nights I get home the latest, I wake up the earliest? We headed out last night for dinner to celebrate my best friend Jes’s birthday. After eating at muum maam (check this place out, amazing food and owned by the people who have Phamish…which I […]

Ungaro Raw – Rozelle

Recently, my weeks at work have been super busy so I haven’t been able to get out on time to make it to the gym. Instead, I’ve been making sure that I get some physical activity in over the weekend. On Sunday morning, my sister Katerina and I headed down to the Bay Run in […]

Manly Wine – Manly Beach

Here I am with another post that shows off how amazing our winter has been in Sydney this year. I’m pretty sure 21 degree days that are full of sunshine can not really be claimed as ‘winter’ in most parts of the world.  Last weekend I met up with some of my lovely friends from […]

Pork & Fennel Sausage Rolls | Recipe

Hello Everyone. I have a quick post today to share this amazing and simple Pork & Fennel Sausage Roll recipe which I whipped up on the weekend to take to my friends house party. Originally the recipe is from the Bourke St Bakery Cookbook but I cheated with it slightly and didn’t make the puff pastry from […]
