La la la I am so excited La Clinica Giveaway…
You have heard the rumors, read the tweets and scanned the blog and here it is my very first Giveaway!!!A few weeks ago when I received an email from the lovely (she must be right?) Julia at La Clinca wondering if I was interested in trying their products I jumped at the opportunity. I am known to love trying out new products and am especially in to those products that use organic and natural ingredients. I quickly ran to scout out their web page and was super impressed. And its made here in Melbourne! ... Read More

Our final Melbourne Open House Day (to see the other posts just click on the tags below) visit was to Parliament House a must see on Dino and my list. I have sat on the forty one stairs dozens of time, I have watched rallies and posed in the odd wedding photo here but I had never been inside.Upon arriving we joined the end of a long queue that took us about forty minutes to reach the front of. Everyone was surprisingly in a good mood and chatted around us with the odd volunteer (odd as in random ... Read More

MOH 2011 is coming…
I saw this on the tram the other day for Melbourne Open House Day 2011 - The last two years I have gathered a group of friends together created a map and day plan (organized or loser - totally your call) and we have set off to explore our gorgeous city. We have found converted basements, ballrooms, attics, three story terraces, roof gardens, hidden churches, Melbournes first public bathroom, deco meeting rooms and lots of other random things. Each time we meet early with coffee in hand and ... Read More

As safe as the crown jewels…
...well perhaps not but much prettier than a hidden vault. This is one of those things that as a girl had I known it existed I would have day dreamed about. A full length mirror concealing a full length jewelry cabinet...sigh. With a lock. Sigh. With a key. Sigh. In white. Ohhhhh. This cabinet was a present from my beloved parentals for Christmas last year and is available at the two Rap locations in the city as well as at Stuff and Nonsense in Melbourne Central. It comes in three colors White, ... Read More
