Lamingtons for Australia Day in the Wild West of the USA.

Lamingtons for Australia Day in the Wild West of the USA.

I was told as soon as I left Australia for my adventure around the world I would have a newfound sense of patriotism. I have always been patriotic about Melbourne (maybe because it is the best place in the world?), but have never really been […]

Goodbye to one of the most formative, blissful and charmed years of my life.

Goodbye to one of the most formative, blissful and charmed years of my life.

This year we were some of the last people in the world to reach 2014. I watched my friends in the UK, Australia, Sweden, Italy, Thailand (and even in New York) celebrate the end of 2013, and then finally it was my turn to say […]

My Farewell Melbourne Party.

My Farewell Melbourne Party.

My farewell party (and last 24 hours) in Melbourne is something I will remember forever. I was so amazingly lucky to have so many people come together to create such an amazing farewell from my beloved home. Earlier in the day we had all brunched, […]

My last day in Melbourne.

My last day in Melbourne.

Today is my last day in Melbourne. I am flying out tomorrow morning, if not forever then for a very long time. I chose Top Paddock as my last brunch destination. This was the most important decision, I think, as brunch is the most important […]

Swedish Roofies, saffron buns + a warm summer night.

We were late for Swedish Roofie night. I was meant to bring my food processor over to Stina‘s early so she didn’t have to hand grate bags and bags of potatoes. But Eric spilled the toothpicks all over the floor. He was SO angry. It […]

Our local pub.

Our local pub.

Most photos below are by the beautiful, talented and magnificent Stina. On more than one occasion, my friends and I have commented on the fact that our lives are like a sitcom. We are always at each others houses. We are always eating out. (sorry […]

Of paint, cider, tutus + wigs.

I saw the ad for the Color Run months ago, and put a call out on facebook for some people to join in. Our team swelled to 12, and there were a stack of other people going, so excitement for the event amplified immensely. We […]

Once there was a Hushpuppy, and she lived with her daddy in the bathtub.

So, a few weeks back Angela mentioned that there was going to be one more Underground Cinema before I left the country. We had always intended on going, so we thought we should get tickets for this one once they were released. Underground Cinema is […]

Edward wanted to see some wildlife. So I thought we would head out to the Dandendongs and wander around in the national parks, check out some of the cute towns scattered amongst the rainforest backdrop, and walk the 1000 steps Kokoda Track. We didn’t see […]

A taste of Melbourne.

A taste of Melbourne.

My favourite day of the year. I love TASTE of Melbourne – it beats christmas, birthdays, easter – because it is a holiday dedicated to food. But, it isn’t just the food that makes this event so fantastic (yes, I just said that). It is […]
