Offspring Season 3…
Yay for Offspring season 3 starting tonight on Chanel 10 but it has made me realize I need to organizes my next OP (Offspring Plan) tour where friends and I use the show as an excuse to explore a bit of Melbourne and visit some bars and restaurants. It's been lovely how many emails and comments I have had about the show and how many people love the idea of an Offspring themed outing (destinations not neurotic (but lovable) family fights in public). Whats been even cooler (yes, I may well be stuck ... Read More

Melbourne's very own little wolf, Lupino…
Tucked away on Little Collins behind white washed brick walls sits one of Melbourne's newest Italians, Lupino. When I was told we were being taken to an Italian restaurant with pasta "like momma used to make" I was thrilled. I love those authentic feeling Italian restaurans.   We headed over to Lpino during the lunch rush and found it next to the back of the Melbourne Club tucked along a little side street. The only reason we found it was the small red fox outline glowing above the door.   We ... Read More

Why, is that Elphaba Grace…
Yes, my little Yorkie puppy now has a name: Elphaba "Elfie" Grace. While I shall be honest Grace has substantially more to do with the Grace Kelly Exhibition we visited the weekend I got her than her character - Moxy or Gumption would have been better middle names had that been what I was after - the name completely suits her. Elfie has had all her shots and this little Yorkie at 11 weeks (thanks to the ten week vaccination) will be ready to play in Melbourne as of Wednesday! I can't wait to take ... Read More

A day trip to Bendigo to see the Grace Kelly Exhibition…
"A day trip to Bendigo to see the Grace Kelly Exhibition" - isn't that a glorious sentence? Somehow the concept of day trips still sends a nanna like thrill through me and add stunning fashion from princess and you have me hooked.   When HD suggested organizing a group expedition/adventure to Bendiogo to visit the Bendigo Art Galley and their Grace Kelly: Style Icon exabhition I was excited; images of train travel, beautiful dresses and the sense of adventure filled my imagination. Despite ... Read More

Wine don't you bank on Bendigo…
When looking for a great lunch spot in Bendigo (especially if you are off to an exhibit at the Art Gallery) The Wine Bank on Viewis hard to pass by. Tucked halfway down the hill the gallery resides in this old victorian bank now wine cellar/restaurant/bar was a fantastic recommendation by HD. The gang and I headed up to Bendigo the weekend before Easter for a fantastic day trip to see the Grace Kelly Exhibition and had been trying to find somewhere for lunch beforehand.   The Wine Bank ...
