• Review: Green Cup, South Yarra

    After yoga on a Saturday morning, I just don’t feel like a big breaky. The other 23 hours of the day I do but just after getting all zen it just doesn’t feel right. I’ve walked past Green Cup in South Yarra so many times that I thought it was about time to try it, so popped into the light and bright store.

    How To Celebrate Australia Day As An Honorary Aussie

    What Is Australia Day? Australia Day is the official National Day of Australia and is celebrated annually on January 26th. Its original purpose was to mark the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson in NSW (near Sydney) and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove by Governor Arthur Phillip. These days it’s a time for all Australians to gather with friends and family and reflect on just what it means to be an Aussie. We are an enormously diverse country, known for our multiculturalism, keen sense of…

    Review: Wabi Sabi Garden, St Kilda

    There are a few things in life I just can’t pass up. Amongst those are bubble tea, talking to strangers dogs on the street and 1/2 price food, so when a friend told me that she had scored us a table at Wabi Sabi Garden and we were going to get 50% off our food, I was stoked. All I needed now was a random dog to say hi to and a bubble tea…

    Medical Centre Review (AKA Cooch Killers)

    I actually decided to not write this review in late 2016 when I went to the Medical Centre*, because I thought it was a bit rough of me to have a go at someone online, and that’s not what I’m about. But it just kept popping up in my head what a shocking experience I had, and then it dawned on me – This is my bloody blog and the reason I started it was to help people learn, grow and laugh; this fits into all of those categories. So prepare yourself for what is not only my first negative review…

    Review: Monk Bodhi Dharma, Balaclava

    I’d like to preface this review by stating that I am an avid meat-eater, a passionate foodie and am reluctantly gluten-free, so for a vegetarian/vegan/GF place to impress me, it must be really bloody good. A GF friend of mine suggested we try Monk Bodhi Dharma and see what all the fuss was about. We opted for a later brunch, and I headed out to meet her at 11am on a Saturday. They’re at the rear 202 Carlisle St, Balaclava, under 15 minutes from Melbourne city in the trendy St Kilda/Balaclava area.

    Dear Diary: I Can’t Stop Eating Cashews, Please Send Help

    Yeah, that’s right. Cashews. They’re like the nutty version of crack (Note: I have no idea what crack’s like as I haven’t and will never try it, I just assume it’s like having a cashew addiction but a shit ton worse). You innocently take a container with some cashews in it to work as a healthy snack (like… 5 a day), and next thing you know you seem to have induced some form of dependence on them.

    Dear Diary: New Year New Everything (And 2014 Plane Crashes?)

    I know everyone keeps going on about how 2016 was the devil or whatever, but I tend to agree with @MsTexas1967 in that “it is becoming increasingly obvious that David Bowie has established a better alternate universe and is populating it selectively one-by-one”. Yeah, a lot of really inspirational and talented people carked it and yeah, that’s really sad, but it’s just like in 2014 when everyone was convinced that air travel was crazy dangerous because there were heaps of crashes that year. Not true! In terms of crashes, 2014 was had the lowest number of crashes in more than 80…
