A Very Lush Christmas

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the Lush Christmas blogger event held in celebration of their Cruelty-free Christmas range and campaign. Of course, it was a splendid night that certainly tantalised all the sensations. We were treated to lessons on the art…

Bangkok

Not one, but two nights in Bangkok! Early morning flight. LOTS of shopping – singlets for 20 ฿, bags for 150 ฿, shoes for 200 ฿ ahhhhh! Motorbikes, people, and trolleys all fighting for space in the market aisles. Shopping until we literally dropped in Black Canyon, recuperating over iced coffee. Street food…

A Very Lush Picnic

Miranda and I share a lot of things in common, however one particular common interest is a current obsession with Lush. Combing this enthusiasm with our other collaborative hobby of photo shoots, we present A Very Lush Picnic! Lip scrubs (shown here as sugar cubes) The lip…

Vanuatu 35mm

I almost forgot how exciting the ritual of film processing could be! A couple months ago I took my fisheye camera and an expired underwater disposable that I picked up at a thrift store on my trip to Vanuatu. Having a limited amount of shots…

Inside McLeod’s Antiques

Anyone heading into the Sydney city from the east or vice versa will pass McLeod’s Antiques. At the corner of South Dowling street, the shop of curiosities sits at a main intersection – thousands of people must see its window displays filled with elaborate vases…

Beijing Markets

Beijing seems so long ago, I am still catching up on all the details. On our final day in Beijing we wandered through the streets & found ourselves in a market. Although our busy tour schedule meant that we were seeing so many new and exciting…

Food Experiments: POPSICLES!

It is a well known fact that IKEA-browsing merits the same sense of addiction that would be associated with the likes of ASOS-browsing, or peanut-butter-from-the-jar-licking. The products of these activities promising an increased value and enjoyability of life (“it’s not just a pen, it’s a…

Southside Tea Room

Whilst I was in Brisbane I had the pleasure of visiting Southside Tea Room! The quirky tea-room-by-day, bar-by-night is a little creative superhero with grandma charm and an arsenal of homemade cakes and cookies, milkshakes and a pinball machine to boot. Of course, we would…

Greetings from Brisbane

Greetings from the sunshine state! Humidity is clinging like a sticky melted popsicle, weighing down like a doona full of lead feathers. We are currently sitting in front of the fan watching Big Bang Theory (the official screening of our Summer) trying to cool down.…

♡ Singapore! ♡

Two weeks in Singapore! In particular, I loved the food and its 24-hour availability; playing mahjong; visiting galleries, markets, shops and malls; assisting my uncle; night culture; the first wave of aircon as you enter a room; and most of all spending time with my beautiful…

Picton

Today we went on a boxing day road trip to Picton which is about 80km south west from Sydney. We had some delicious food at the George IV Inn (rosemary on chips = yum!) and made quite a few other pitstops along the way and further south…
