Melbourne: Sunny Side Up

The first time I went southbound to Melbourne was in the depths of wintery gloom last July. This year was a completely different story. It seemed a miracle that for two whole days, the city was crisp but radiating sunshine. A week before, I surprised a friend by mentioning an unplanned visit I wanted to […]

Torrential Downpours and Vegan Love

I love a good surprise. Unplanned things, adventures into the unknown. I live for spontaneity. Because why? It’s such a content-filled life when you’re not planning everything meticulously and living for to-do lists. I used to freak out when I didn’t remember what I did yesterday but now I embrace it.

A notebook isn’t enough, the paper ageing quicker and more gracefully than my mind ever would. These are the times when the Internet becomes a blessing – because lucky […]

Three Williams

Certain areas which were oft neglected and overlooked are now gaining a new reputation and a more positive light. If you hadn’t noticed, city cafĂ© goers are now digging the exposed brickwork/industrial/minimalistic feel to spaces which were once designed only for eating and socialising. It seems we have reached a new era – we don’t […]
