The Pros and Cons of Travelling; as told by a Twenty Something

Travelling has always been in my blood; my parents met in Saudia Arabia, I always went on exotic holidays as a kid and my dreams always consisted of new destinations.  My first ‘real’ experience of travelling was when I was nineteen and I decided to travel to the USA to become a camp counsellor for…

Saturday in Sydney

Normally I’m working in the restaurant during the weekends but as the weather hasn’t been so kind to us recently, I managed to get a Saturday off!  Usually I rise around 1pm and after chilling in bed, grabbing something to eat and eventually showering – I’m ready to conquer the day at around 4pm. However,…

Fusion Foods

What do Mexican and Asian cuisines have in common? They both shared a bowl to become my lunch the other day.  I was hungry and I hadn’t done a food shop so I looked through my fridge and cupboards and decided to merge two cuisines!  Here’s my recipe: 1 tbsp homemade guacamole (red onion, tomato,…

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Over the past few weeks I feel as if I’ve been living as a housewife and my friend Tash is my companion in all this. You see, we’re now working weird hours so they only time for a catch up is lunchtime during the middle of the week. We now rub shoulders with the very…

Ladies Who Lunch 💁🏽

Last week I was treated to three outings with Tash and, of course food had to be involved!  The first trip of the week was shopping and lunch in Bondi Junction. We decided to eat first so we had enough energy to do the exhausting task of browsing through the stores. We went for a…

Lions and Tigers, and Steak, oh my! 

I’m starting to think that Tash and I are a couple as we meet up for ‘date night’ once a week… This week we went for dinner and a movie in Randwick.  1st Analysis: Dinner Don’t even remember the name of the restaurant but it was a basic looking cafe style place. Once again, we…

Pancake Day

Shrove Tuesday had come around for another year and that only meant one thing; mandatory dessert after a mid week meal!  What I didn’t realise that it wasn’t really a normal thing to celebrate in Australia as when I mentioned the awesome gorge fest, I was greeted with very puzzled faces. Much like Bonfire Night…

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras ❤️💛💚💙💜

I knew I always wanted to travel to Australia when I finished uni but the question was; where to base myself?  *flashback* In my final year of uni (2014) we had to prepare a presentation on an event of choice, that had to incorporate the use of a large poster. The majority of my class…

Homemade Gnocchi 🍝

Funny how things work out; a failed staff night out (everyone was busy) turned into cooking lessons!  My lovely friend from work took pity on me a few days ago as I’d gotten all ready for a night out for everyone to cancel. So she picked me up and we, along with her husband, went…
