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?

Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes – Day One…
I have realized in all my blog write ups I keep talking cupcakes...but have left my blog very bare of them. Perhaps this is a little reflective of Melbourne itself.

We all talked "cupcakes" and phrases such as "shall we meet for a cupcake" and "just a little cupcake with our coffee" seemed to fall from many a Melbournian's lips ... Read More
