The Plain

There is nothing more exciting than travelling to other countries and experiencing a whole new range of tastes. But the one thing I miss is a really good coffee. When I was last in Singapore on holiday I found myself desperate for a good coffee so I decided to do a google search and I […]

Bread in Common

I’ve started falling back in love with Fremantle. I love the old buildings, their architecture, the harbour, the beach and the laid back vibe. Add to that a few of my new favourite places to eat at, Bread in Common being one of them. Located in sleepy Pakenham street, a stones throw from the bustling […]

Kindy Lunch

Today my son started Kindy. He was so excited and I was really excited for him and all the new experiences he was going to discover. I had heard about the dreaded packed lunch and we have spent a few weeks trialling out different lunch ideas for Kindy. I was trying to be really conscious […]


After fantastic meals from the team behind Cantina 663 and Ace Pizza I was keen to try their el PUBLICO Mexican joint. I knew it wouldn’t be typical of old-school Mexican restaurants and I’d be in for a real food treat. Located along the popular Beaufort St strip, this super hip bar and restaurant is […]

Ootong and Lincoln

Hoping to beat the mad morning rush, we arrived early but still found ourselves queueing for about 5 minutes for a table. Mis-matched furniture with sofas are scattered around the large space with a few tables along the […]

The decor, with its pop of fresh apple green against the white and black is striking. With views over the resort pool, the relaxed ambience encourages you to […]

Mary Street Bakery

Waking to sunshine after days of rain prompted us to get out of bed early on a Sunday morning and head out for breakfast. When the hubby asked ‘Where to?’ as we pulled out of the drive I decided it was time to visit Mary Street Bakery in Mt Lawley. On arrival we noted a […]

The Wolseley

The Wolseley was on my to-dine-at list when I lived in London but I unfortunately never got there. However when back holidaying in London recently, I was determined not to miss out this time. Nestled between The Ritz and Fortnum and Mason, this grand restaurant has been serving patrons since 2003. (It was built in […]
