Brewtown Cammeray

I let my membership to my last gym lapse as the classes I was going too became overcrowded as they weren’t monitoring the class numbers. Night Owl continued to go to the same gym as she had PT sessions, but let me know that the gym has since halved in size but more than doubled their member…

Mr Spofforth

The inner west has never really been on my list of places I would consider moving to – it’s simply too close to the city, too busy, and doesn’t feel like you’ve left behind the hustle and bustle of the CBD. You’re still in the midst of it all, and for those who love an…

Devon Cafe, Barangaroo

I’ve been under fire from my mother recently about my weight. It’s certainly a hard balance to keep, what with an office job and a love of food, but I think I do fairly well – I teach Zumba twice a week, do yoga twice a week, and twice a week will spend an hour…

Thai Berry

It’s a pretty giddy feeling having your birthday fall close to a long weekend. I’ve been thankful that for the last couple of years my birthday has fallen on or around the October Labor Day long weekend, however it also coincides with the return of Daylight Savings so it means that any partying done on…

Roastville & thoughts on Orlando

Apologies for the late post this week, lovelies. With recent events in the news I wasn’t quite in the mood to write up my Monday regular post; I’m actually still quite shell-shocked about the news of the Orlando hate-crime terror shooting that happened over the weekend. Two nights ago I went to the candlelight vigil…

Brighton The Corner

If you want Portugese Tarts in Sydney, Sweet Belem is the place to go. Their display is packed full from the old-fashioned good slices to decadent chocolate creations, but the main highlight is their Portugese Tarts. You’re in for a treat if you get them fresh, still warm, the buttery pastry flaky and crisp, the…

Corn Zucchini Fritters with Petuna Ocean Trout

S: “First day of autumn wut.” Me: “I know, still feels like summer.” S: “I mean, how is it possibly March already??” Me: “I reckon – I’m still trying to get used to writing 2016.” Our third month into 2016 – it’s about now that the workday office blues have started to set in. Earlier…

Brewtown Newtown

It never fails to astound me how Night Owl has never explored all that Newtown has to offer, having lived in the adjoining suburb of Enmore for over a year. Then again, I can’t really be one to dish out criticism as its only been late last year that I first went to two bakeries in my…

Illi Hill

‘Why did you decide to study law?’ It’s a question I receive too often from people who I just meet and the inevitable question of ‘what do you do?’ is exchanged among the pleasantries. I never fail to get a chuckle at my response of: ‘I didn’t know what I wanted to do; so when…

Di Bella @ Baffi and Mo

I used to be one of those people who required a coffee each and every morning to boost myself into gear; but after some time I learned that it was simply the caffeine and the element of routine which kept me going – I never truly appreciated the depth in flavour, the smoky aroma, the…

West Juliett

I’m fighting an ongoing war with aphids in my kitchen garden. I currently have eight little pots of herbs and greenery on my kitchen windowsill: thyme, two pots of mint, two pots of salad leaves, sage, chives, and rosemary. The rosemary – bless it – has been the hardiest, but the others are some of the…

Anvil Coffee Co

It was a gloriously sunny Sunday morning and I wanted a hipster breakfast without the effort of crossing the bridge. With Maslow’s sadly now closed, I remembered talk of Anvil Coffee Co’s relatively new set-up in the back streets of Artarmon, but my joy was short-lived when I did my online scouting and discovered that they were closed on…
