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.

This evening on the hunt for a vegetarian soup for dinner at David Jones (vegan red curry soup - success) I wandered around the food hall and stumbled on their new display.
