I wanna get CLOSE to you…
Mister Close is one of those places I watched with much dubiousness as it prepared to open over a month ago. It had all the makings of somewhere cool but is located in the middle of the MidTown Plaza (Target centre) in the CBD (need I say more?). Well I was foolish to wonder, this little creation has added something new and fresh to the lunch spot options in the middle of Melbourne and while I love walking down alleyways and up stairs it's nice to find somewhere so accessible. CJ and I headed ... Read More

A la folie ma Cherie……
Melbourne. Macaron. Melbourne. Macaron. Anyone else a little pleased by this trend? There is something about all their shiny candy colourdness that makes me happy. They are so pretty and simple and lady like (but still totally cool for men of course). So when last week CJ mentioned a new specialist had opened in Royal Arcade I knew we had to go and check it out. Positioned in the middle of the arcade, A La Folie, is more of an inner counter than a shop. It's so prettily decked out with just the ... Read More

Zara getting closer…
Zara, greatly anticipated Spanish fashion chain, is getting closer to opening in Melbourne. Bourke St Mall, home to our Zara, has a feeling of constant building with the time it's taking for Zara to get ready. But wouldn't we rather have it perfect? Wednesday night, walking past, I noticed the crew (who never seem to leave) wheeling out giant pains of glass. Could this be the famous glass canopy all the comments have been about? (thanks again to the group updating the comments - it's been really ... Read More

I’m singing in the rain…

I’m singing in the rain…
Or I would be if I could coordinate my carrying of this Oroton umbrella with Melbourne rain. Which I have yet to do. Despite being the rainiest May on record. While I have debated just running outside for a walk around the block with this, I feel it needs to be more...authentically used and would prefer not to have my neighbors think I am odd(er). This is the umbrella I purchased at Brand Smart in Nunawading for $18 on sale (happy bargain dance). The yellow, for me, feels a little HIMYM which makes ... Read More
