Burger Urge Cheese Louise 2

Burger Urge: Take 2

I’ve actually reviewed Burger Urge before, a couple of years ago, and I distinctly remember passing out in a delirious, slightly comatose state after eating their delicious sweet potato fries. So, obviously when the kind folks offered me a couple of vouchers to use recently, I was game to hit...

Dello Mano – New PB Brownies

D and I are a brilliant team. Not only do we often accidently dress in complementary colours (sick, but true), but we also acheive very brilliant things when we work together. Case in point: I was idly surfing on twitter the other afternoon while eating a late lunch, when I...

Vapiano: Italy meets Caboolture

I know how important it is to buy fresh, local and seasonal produce, but confession time: I am That Girl. The one who buys asparagus imported from Thailand. The one who bitterly chews her way through a crappy apple, because it was the cheapest. The one who covertly buys the cheese...

Spotlight: Tognini’s Spring Hill Re-Opening

Man, I love a good deli. There’s something about a huge, viewable¬†range of fresh produce, cheeses, meats, and antipasti that just excites me. Perhaps I was meant to be born an elegant, sexy gal from Perugia, and not a bumbling, is-that-really-another-food-stain-on-my-shirt chick from Canada. Tognini’s has been somewhat of an...

New York Slice Review

I know what most of you will think the minute you see this post’s title. “New York Slice?? Am I drunk? No. Am I hungover? No. Am I a food snob who turns their nose up at most things cheap and greasy? Yes.” Everyone seems to discount NY Slice as...

Spotlight: Vapiano Launch

I’ve now walked a red carpet twice in my life. The first time, it was worn, quite threadbare, and I’m pretty sure it was red because someone spilt goon on it. My second red carpet experience was much nicer (and cleaner). Vapiano officially launched last week, and pulled out all...

Sugar and Spice Mini Review

And All Things Nice What are little Allys made of? Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what little Allys are made of. Well, in reality, I was sweaty, wearing old gym clothes, and probably didn’t smell that fantastic. But at that moment, sitting in Sugar and Spice in...

Gelatissimo Review

Die Happy and Refreshed The duvet is getting kicked to the end of the bed every night. A chilled can of XXXX sounds like a really good idea at 10 in the morning. Sweat is getting into all sorts of crevices. Isn’t this weather fantastic? What better way to cool...

Cicada Review

Cool Confusion I hate Crocs. Not because they’re sort of ugly (apologies to any Crocs lovers out there). I hate them because as a shoe, they fail. What are they? Are they gardening shoes? Are they shoes to wear in the shower at the gym? Are they casual weekend shoes?...

Extract Espresso Bar Review

Simple CBD munchiesNow that I’m an unemployed loser, there’s one thing that I miss about working (aside from the money thing and the stationery cupboard). Weekday city cafes. There are seriously tonnes of quirky little places all over the CBD that sadly close their doors on the weekend. If you’re...
