Wine farm visits, wine courses, wine tastings, wine festivals… So I am super stoked that the Season of Sauvignon festival is just around the corner. There’s nothing like […]

Darling Flowers

Last weekend I went up to Darling with a bunch of the gurls. It was the weekend of the Darling Flower Show, but we went up there with a few other intentions ie drinking and wine. “Drink lost of wine, see some flowers” seemed to be the general motto. Friday night was so fantastic. We […]

I Knew I Liked This Song: Call Me Maybe

I Knew I Liked This Song: Call Me Maybe

I don’t hate the original. Sometimes I even get mildly excited when it comes on the radio and sing along and get it stuck in  my head and hum it softly while I’m creepily close to a stranger’s ear in line at Woolies. But Ben Howard sure does an earth-shatteringly fantastic cover of Carly Ray Jepsen’s […]

Miley’s New Crop

Miley’s New Crop

When my friend @Stellllaaaaaaaa told me that she’s been having thoughts of cutting her long blonde locks into a short blonde crop, I wasn’t shy to voice my reservations. Mainly because I myself have spent the past 3 years ruing the day I allowed my own “short thoughts” to get the better of me- and […]
