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

Let's go to the circus…
The art work of Roy Maloy, circus artist, is currently on display and for sale in the city's block arcade. The display is very interesting in its own right but even more of a contrast is the suited city taking in these performers captured in ink.   Isn't it every kids dream to run away to the circus? But as an adului working (yup I work) in the corporate world this life seems so far removed. It was a nice interlude to my day for just a moment to step away from the desk, computer ... Read More

MOMA Mia…
Ok as if I could resist that title for my visit to the Museum of Modern Art in New York? I will be honest with you dear reader, after brunching with the girls (will feature soon) at a gorgeous very NY brunch spot, I nearly didn't make it to Moma. The catch was...we had to cross fifth avenue, and for me fifth avenue is a little close to heaven. That's right my heaven has Henri Bendel, Tiffany & Co, Saks, The Library, Rockerfella Plaza, Bryant Park...well you get the picture. I wanted to abandon the ... Read More

Shall we play cards…
I love love love being in the know about the things to do in and around Melbourne (am figuring you may have already guessed this?). When I first got home a few years ago after having spent most of my twenties on foreign shores I realized the places I recalled as being the 'it' places either no longer existed, were no longer 'it' and worse were geared at someone in their uni years and not a cultured sophisticate such as... well myself. Quel Horreur. So in very typical MelbournianGirl fashion I went ... Read More

Offspring Filming Locations Yup you have me....I occasionally get addicted to tv shows - especially when they are costume dramas or filmed in the city in which I live. Welcome the Chanel 10 series Offspring staring Asher Keddie (and Eddie Perfect). I love this show for many reasons including a heroine who thinks the thoughts I think (sometimes), an amazing vintage wardrobe a crazy family without being violent and lots of random owls. I love this series even more for her improbably large apartment ... Read More
