I wonder if I could be a barista. I love to watch them at work - how fast their hands move as they navigate the grinding, then the coffee-making ( see, I really do have a lot to learn ), the milk-frothing. So much care and precision put into each. There are times I regretfully… Continue reading musings :: alicia vikander.
I give myself decision fatigue every morning as I consider which amazing cafe to visit for my darling coffee. Options are a real struggle. First I have to make the decision of going to one of my two loyals and favourites ( although I can hardly call myself loyal can I, when I am frequently… Continue reading the sustainers :: limb.
Somehow today has become a very inspiring day. Starting with a new cafe visit, another checked off the ever-growing list, complete with the most delicious brain-food omelette. Then a mass of chores ensued, and the feeling of cleanliness accomplished. Baked some veggie bread followed by a short afternoon walk, and now sipping my warm tea,… Continue reading the sustainers :: campbell charlotte.
Speedy life update. The worm farm has been ordered, weekends away are the best (particularly when they involve the beach, glorious sun and cake), and I’m truly killing for the NSW version of The Specialty Coffee Book - Victoria couldn’t have all the glory forever. - Geometric 60’s inspiration, so mod. I remember when I… Continue reading inspiration wall :: aug.
Moving has obviously affected my normal life quite extensively. It seems my thoughts have also been infiltrated, when the wonder of The Parent Trap kept me awake. I couldn’t go to sleep until I had jotted down that Lilo sucked us in to her twinny world, and forced us all as young children to dream… Continue reading inspiration wall :: jun.
Surprise, I'm actually still here. Our volcano friend in Vanuatu decided to burst some ash into the sky yesterday, so now we have a 2 day mini home holiday before we finally leave. Just enough time to squeeze in one more February post before we head into autumn. After my active brain struggled with some… Continue reading melbournian for a day.
It is officially summer - whaaaaatt (crazy crazy crazy). Too much joy to even describe right now. I can finally get in the ocean for more than a dive, it's actually a swim. We can stay in the hot sun until late in the day and then wander to find some tasty feastings. The weekend… Continue reading photoshoot :: living the old school way.
After a morning of swimming and wandering the streets of Pymble, we managed to find Maslows - an amazing little cafe nook, tucked into an old garage. Tiny yet beautiful, with a delicious menu (I could dig into that pork brioche any day). The chai came served in it's own beaker, and the best bit,… Continue reading ikou x a great cafe.
There is almost nothing greater than a sexy cafe, with a quirky feel. The scent of coffee wafting in the air, hipstah magazines, and interesting design features. My favourite cafes are often those that are beautifully simple but so well put together. Take Mecca for example. And let's be honest, I am bound to love… Continue reading cafe love.
Even after a solid week without Instagram I managed to build up a load. Data limits on plans and constant hot-spotting are not friends. Top left to right - a sisterly coffee date at Excelsior Jones - and the beginnings of our joint blog ; traipsing to the lighthouse in Ulladulla ; a 2-year celebration.… Continue reading july in an insta.
