2014_11_19 La Svolta

Everything at La Svolta was delicious. I ate it all! That’s enough of a review, right? Okay, probably not. Read the full one over at The Modern Con.

I can personally vouch for the beef and tuna tartares, prosciutto with deep fried pizza dough (just as yummy as you think it is), the seared tuna and the chickpea and capsicum salad (how can chickpeas be so yummy with so few ingredients?). A special mention must be made to the Nutella pizza. The base was some kind of combo of puff and chewy pastry and the Nutella was so thick it stuck to the roof of your mouth. Heaven. Seriously.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s the best Italian I’ve had since I visited Italy and was raving about it for days afterwards. I’ve already told my friends we’re adding it to our Must Eat At List. It had a really nice atmosphere and nursing a glass of bubbly, I ended up making friends with the other ladies at my table. In fact, we’re going to brunch next week!

My new friends are: Sandra and Stina from Klaus and Fritz (Stina is also gold and grit photography) and Olivia who's probably the most famous Instagrammer I know and her sister Steff

perfume making // mpavilion

26 Nov 2014

This year's MPavilion has been designed by Australian architect Sean Godsell. It's a meeting place and also a host to a free four-month program of all manner of talks, workshops, performances and installations from October to February.

MPavilion is an architecture commission for Melbourne and each year for the next four years an outstanding architect will be commissioned to design a temporary pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, opposite the Southbank Arts Precinct.

I went to the perfume make meet with Briony Wright from Odelab. She talked to us about the history of perfume and then we got to play with some of her scents to make our own perfume! Mine is aptly titled The Helaylay and is a mix of patchouli and citrus.

As always, with all my good blogging intentions, it's taken me a while to get back here. So here's some of my favourite links. I've got so many at the moment I might have to split out the posts, or work on a mega big one for December!

fashion week style around the globe

24 Oct 2014

Fashion Week is always lots of fun to keep tabs on and with the rise and rise of street style photography, there's even more fashion to look at! Most fashion week goers look "so fashion". While I think it's so great that you can express yourself and put your own twist on an outfit, the styles I like the most are always those that I can see myself wearing. I also love picking up on a trend that I can adapt to my own style. So here's some of my favourite looks from fashion weeks around the world. (Psst, the iridescent purple coat and heels above are just SO FUN! I probably wouldn't actually wear the cost, but the heels? For sure!) 


mixtape // september

15 Sep 2014

I'm listening to so much girl pop at the moment and it's the most fun to rock out to in my car while on the highway. If you ever see someone singing overly enthusiastically while eating a piece of toast and sipping tea, that could very well be me.

I've also included two of Many Things' songs because they're great and Mikey's amazing and Hayley from The Jezabels sang vocals on Chains and it's heartbreaking beautiful. I'm also listening to One Direction's new free song Fireproof on repeat (not available on Spotify though). I've read a lot of people saying it's like The Beach Boys and John Mayer, but all I hear is Fleetwood Mac!
