Coffee date, because…

How funny! We’re both sporting gym clothes, ordering only one coffee and a green juice to follow. We are such New Year cliches.

And as a New Years cliche, we must talk resolutions. We just gotta! If not to actually accomplish them, then to get us started on a path. And I’m not talking proper life resolutions like “Run a marathon under four hours”. I’m talking cute, small, day-to-day food related resolutions like…

1. Drink one coffee a day. Two, tops: My husband thinks I’m addicted and he may be right. Just admit to it so we can all move on!

2. Try something other than the chips on the sides menu: I have a great gift for knowing when chips will be good at a restaurant. Trust my gut. Don’t take chances. Order something else.

3. Meditate for 10 minutes a day after work and before dinner: Use the Headspace app. this is when I give myself 10 minutes to sit on the couch and go through Instagram, anyway.

4. Keep the kitchen (this includes the fridge, Bianca) neat: I don’t need to explain this. Just do it.

5. Learn to cook healthy easy meals and keep the kitchen stocked so that I don’t rely on pasta when in a jam: The amazing Cookbook Book Club you have started with your friend Bel will help with this! Look at you go!

6. Eat properly to sustain the amount of running I’ll be doing this year: Great Ocean Road Marathon – Here I come!

7. DO NOT buy any more Doritos: Doesn’t matter if Coles has them on sale. PUT. THE. DORITOS. DOWN.

8. Please avoid spilling food on your clothe: If you do not succeed, call your mom straight away. she’ll teach you how to remove said stain.

9. Stop eating leftover food from other people’s plates: This is non-negotiable. It is not cute. Anymore.

10. Once a month, dress up real nice, make sure your nails are done and go to a fancy dinner: #treatyoself

New Zealand

Coffee date, because…

I’ve been so busy lately – I haven’t been answering calls, texts, email or letters. Forgive me. My family came over from the US for a few weeks so we could celebrate Thanksgiving and, finally, visit New Zealand(!!). But now I’m back with a vengeance and I can’t wait to catch up.

I’m up to date with this show and would really love for Season 6 to come out now.

The Dressmaker made me want to change my closet.

Now, this is a great sponsorship idea.


These girls are so funny.

Gorilla sales sky rocket after latest gorilla attack, The Onion reports. 

Currently watching Nashville. I’m obsessed and I don’t care who knows it.

If Amy and Tina say we can watch both then #wecanwatchboth.

Recently went to this restaurant and bloody LOVED it.

My dream Christmas present, please!

Snow is coming. 

I’ve started listening to this podcast. Try the episode called “How To Be Batman”.

St. Kilda

Coffee date, because

Life has been getting real complicated lately. The other day I overheard someone ask for an extra hot weak latte with soy milk.  When the waitress turned to put his order into the computer he grabbed her arm, looked at her with crazy eyes and said, “I mean it, I WANT IT REAL HOT”. The next day a girl asked for lemon to be added to her coffee – I almost flipped the table in a rage. But I’ll give the world the benefit of the doubt and say all that nonsense was due to the Halloween and Spring Carnival nonsense.

Guys, “I told my kids I ate all their Halloween candy” (and it does not disappoint).

Can we talk about this song and how cool Emma Stone is?

Adele is back.

This campaign makes me blush.

Bro, bro, bro. BROOOO.

A standing ovation for Ariana Grande!

I’m on the fence about this.

I can’t wait to see more footage from this race.

too much food, too little people who care on my personal page.

Worked out here this past weekend and LOVED IT. Book in!

Are you going to Taste of Melbourne?

Coffee Date, Because

Coffee is getting more expensive every day. I blink and the price of my strong flat white has gone up 20 cents. It’s not a bad thing; It’s just surprising. It definitely makes me value these coffee dates of ours more. I remember when N. Lee Bakery, Jack and I’s worst kept secret, raised food and drink prices. They put the sweetest note on the cash register explaining why. I was like, “Omg. Of course! Why wouldn’t you!” Just goes to show how important communication is. Anyway, have you heard…

… the story about the two whales, the drone and the paddle boarder? Incredible footage!

This photography series is so creepy because it’s so true.

I’ve been saying this ever since our visit to Alcatraz.

You will not believe how cheap airline tickets will be with Norwegian Airlines in 2017.

Will you be buying this champagne bong?

No matter what you believe, you can’t deny how incredible these images are.

This commercial made me cry. I’m such a sucker.

If they came to Melbourne, 13826428% be going.

But! I would fly to the ends of the Earth to go to this show.

I would love to experience this festival.

She was just named the sexiest woman alive and I totally agree.
