A few Friday nights ago, The Brooding Architect organised a double date with one of our favorite couples – The Botox Babe (to clarify, she injects it and does not receive it) and The Artistic Pharmacist. Because we were so disorganised, we could only get a booking for the fashionably late dinner sitting of 9.30pm. Having {more}

I have said it before, but this blog is not at all cutting edge. For years, lots and lots of more qualified people* than me have raved and ranted about Hu Tong Dumpling Bar. This would ordinarily stop me from adding yet another review to an already overcrowded space. (*In particular there are some great {more}

In the week leading up to Easter, you have noticed a higher than usual ratio of black smock wearing types on the streets of the  Melbourne CBD. The only reasonable explanation was the National Architecture Conference was in town! Being married to The Brooding Architect means that by default lots of our friends are architects {more}

As I mentioned in my previous post, last weekend I celebrated another ‘closer to 30 than 20 birthday’. As a special treat, The Brooding Architect organised a big mystery date last Friday night. His ability to keep the destination a surprise was impressive. I could not even coax it out of him when I asked him what I {more}

After a few weekends chained to the drawing board, The Brooding Architect finally had an entire office-free weekend.  To celebrate his new found freedom,  we took a leisurely stroll down to the Rathdowne Street in North Carlton in search of a new breakfast haunt.  Since my new Melissa sandals were starting to rub (somehow, I don’t think {more}

I am not usually an early adopter when it comes to food. Out of convenience (some may call it laziness), I tend to stick to my tried and tested favourites. Macarons have been the new black ever since Adriano Zumbo made that Macaron Tower on ‘Masterchef’ last year. However, despite my best efforts, I have {more}

The purpose of my (second) most recent* trip to Cumulus Inc was to meet up with a good friend from my uni days, The Weekend Farmer. By day The Weekend Farmer is a high-flying construction lawyer, who seems to spend the bulk of his time in airport lounges and on flights en route to exotic {more}

I am pleased to report that I have officially survived my first week back at work after holidays. I am not sure about everyone else, but I always find it really hard to adjust back to work after a few weeks of slothing about. I also find that I am hungry all the time – {more}

I am self-described lover of lists, organisation and the associated stationary which comes with this affliction (post-it notes, highlighters, bulldog clips – you name it and I’ve got it). So, unsurprisingly, I like to get my Christmas presents ticked off the list and gift-wrapped (preferably in well matched gift wrap and ribbon – this year’s {more}

I have been a bad blogger over the last week . I blame: Having to be a ‘real lawyer’ and preparing not one but two matters for trial this week; and A whirlwind weekend visit from Glamorous Sister No. 2. Anyway, enough excuses – let’s just say I have lots of food stories to catch {more}
