The Emporium Melbourne February and March 2012…
Every time I walk past this new development, Emporium Melbourne,  seems to becoming more facade less content.   It was sad and intresting (an odd combo I know) to watch so much of it being knocked down the other week and then last week all that was left was empty windows with daylight streaming through both sides. I look forward to the new shops but am sad we seem to be losing so many of Melbourne's beautiful old buildings in there name.   For earlier posts on this new ... Read More

Any questions for Ben…
Well to wrap up my happy trio of Melbourne on the screen I though I would share with you the delightful film that is "Any Questions for Ben". I must admit when Dino originally proposed a movie outing to see this film I wasn't sure what it was. When I read the slew of mediocre reviews and had similar feedback from those who had read the reviews and decided not to see the film I was ambivalent. But Dino knows me too well. She merely had to say that it makes Melbourne look good. I was in.   So ... Read More

Offspring, Time Out, Fitzroy and me…
It's out! The March issue of Time Out Melbourne has hit the shelves and tucked away on page 26 is the article about filming Offspring in Melbourne, more especially Fitzroy and uses my blog and me as a source! Now I know a true blogger might take this naturally in stride, but not me - I want to jump up and down, toast with champagne (in saucers not flutes) and buy lots and lots of copies.   When I headed to Mag Nation on Elizabeth at lunchtime today I scoured the shop looking for this ...

A little eye candy…
  Now pick your minds up from the gutter. This is a PG (perfectly gorgeous) blog and for today I thought I would share some pics taken last year as Bean and I were frivolously extravagant and supped on Macarons from The Tea Room at the NGV while wandering about Melbourne.After browsing the NGV, gazing at the ceiling and having a lovely catch up we picked up a macaron each (Pistachio for Bean and my beloved Violet Macaron for moi) headed out for a stroll. A delightful way to spend an afternoon.  ...

Feeling behind the times…

Feeling behind the times…
Then worry no more as P&O should be able to make you feel a hint more modern.   This evening I was browsing the web, inspired as I was by the big cruise ships in Sydney's Circular Quay this morning, and I stumbled upon the following gem selling Melbourne as a tourist destination...would you go here? ...and for those of you wondering when the "new" Arts centre was well...new...it was the early eighties!   ...

Happy Valentines Day…

Happy Valentines Day…
Valentines day is one of those days we either love to love (especially if you are in the hallmark business or happily besotted) or love to hate with protestations that's it's a commercial love only and we should declare our love (if we have any I guess) daily and not need prompting from a long dead saint or a baby with bow and arrow.   However, I love the chintz of it all and think its a sweet day to show those we love we care about them (not of course that we need an excuse but really ...
