Lately you can’t swing a cat without hitting an overflowing acai bowl out of someone’s hand. I love me some acai, so I don’t really mind, BUT I love my beef and hot meals as well. Amazingly there is a place in Brisbane that will give you sweet refreshing smoothies and...

Atticus Finch, Paddington

I don’t remember jack from high school. For instance: in grade 8 or 9 we read To Kill a Mockingbird. We did essays on it. I’m pretty sure I smashed out an A or at least a B+ for mine. So you would think I’d remember the messages and the themes at the...

Habitat West End Opens

I love a good beard. Proof: D had very strict rules not to shave for at least a week prior to our wedding. I would have preferred longer, but he complained of itchiness. I guess not making him go any longer was my wedding present to him. So what do beards...

Rogue Bar and Bistro

Some big, BIG things happened on the weekend. First: I baked brownies and miraculously didn’t eat the entire pan in one day. Second: We found our new FAVOURITE breakfast place in Brisbane. Rogue Bar and Bistro at Newstead is plonked in the middle of a bunch of nondescript buildings (we drove...

Moose & Gibson

Do we have any Block fans out there? I’m sure there are. If you’re like me, it’s difficult to go out on a Sunday night because you’ll sit there the whole time going, “Did it record? What if it didn’t. What if it’s not recording.” When The Block is in...

Artie & Mai

I know a lot of people were devastated when the beloved Stockholm Syndrome shut its doors recently. But guess what? I’m giving y’all a belated Christmas present (or a really, really early one). I’m giving you news about Stockholm’s super-cute, younger, hipper replacement! You’re welcome. Artie & Mai has taken...

Fitch Espresso

I have slight stalker-ish tendencies. I’ve taken many wonderful yoga classes from Chris Fitch (yup, the Fitch in Fitch!) at Harlow, and when I heard he was opening up a Newstead coffee spot, I couldn’t wait to try the fruits of his latest career change. I knew it was one...

Pablo New Farm

I think I am seeing the beginnings of a dangerous new relationship. No, I haven’t found myself some bad boy who has tattoos and doesn’t floss – nor am I hooked on some new adrenalin-filled activity (finding out I’ve accidently thrown a silk shirt in the washing machine is excitement...

Chester Street Kitchen

We popped into Chester Street Kitchen recently for a quick afternoon slice of cake. What, you don’t do that? You’re crazy. Cake and a lazy afternoon go together like Vegemite and cheese. Cake is an especially suitable arvo snack when it’s something like this:   Red velvet! Chester Street also had a...

Hudsons coffee 2

Hudsons Coffee GIVEAWAY!

You may remember I recently tried Hudsons Coffee’s new Barista’s Choice Blend beans (say that five times fast). I also popped into an actual Hudsons Cafe the other day to try one that the experts made, and needless to say they did a heck of a better job than I...
