A New Office Space 

I’ve been in Melbourne for three months now and my work was based in your typical office, on bourke street. I worked with a handful of older males from different companies. There wasn’t much space for my boss and I to be innovative so we knew we had to move. And that’s exactly what we…

Moving to Melbourne 

After three Valium and two glasses of wine I made it to Melbourne; I didn’t remember the flight at all – it was great! The weather change wasn’t the best as it was freezing, rainy and grey when I arrived. I immediately missed the 30 degree heat in Alice! My first stop wasn’t another weird…

An Aussie Hog Roast

So two new backpackers arrived on the farm; Kieren, 21 from London and Bryan, 23 from Manchester.  They had it easy, one day picking, a day off and then another day picking (all on big juicy beans). However, Bryan couldn’t hack it and quit after two days. So we sent him on his way the…

A Night at the Opera

Another treat was on the cards, this time it was an evening of opera at the Sydney Opera House!  Tash and I put on our glad rags and went to see Two Weddings, One Bride.  Here’s a few pics of the night: The show was an operetta which means it has elements of opera but…

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…

Valentine’s Day 💕

Being single on Valentine’s Day isn’t the best, but when you live in Sydney it’s an excuse to party!  I went out to Coogee Pavillion for a singles event with my friend from work and her friend. Here we are in our glad rags: The venue was filled with pink balloons, roses and a kissing…

Laters, baby 😘

*Flashback* It was the summer of 2012; I was working hard at camp teaching archery and being a cabin counsellor (basically I taught and lived with the kids) . My peers were all female and aged between 18-28. What was a very popular book trilogy at that time? What got us all through children shitting…

Ladies Night!

It was Saturday night, I wasn’t working and had some money in my account. What did that mean? Tash and I were going out out!  Here we are with our glad rags on: We decided to head to the city and Scary Canary was the club of choice. We were in the queue for no…

Chinese New Year

January 28th brought in a second new year for me, this time a rooster was involved!  I’m of course talking about Chinese New Year. I usually never celebrate this festival but this year was different, as one of my colleagues at Poke is from Malaysia. She was educating the team on what the rooster means;…

Australia Day

G’day! January 26th is Australia Day, and it’s a time to drink and eat!  As usual, the hosts with the most, Tash and Ben put on an awesome spread! Ben was on barbecue duty, whilst Tash, her friend and I sat back and drank.  Here’s Ben looking very Aussie: We started off with a cheese…

Farm2Fork Event

Hey! It was time! All the hard work for the last 5 weeks had all built up to this moment, the Farm2Fork event sponsored by Rabobank.  This event was a place for all contributors to the food and agricultural industries to come together and celebrate all that they have done. I had spent the night…

Happy Halloween!

Good evening… Halloween is my absolute favourite holiday!! I love it all; the costumes, the spooky vibe, the parties, the pumpkin carving and the horror films!  This post is to show you that I even incorporate Halloween into my food! Although I am let down by myself this year as I usually make cupcakes and…
