Coffee date, because…

We have so much to catch up on!

Despite it’s score on Rotten Tomatoes, I watched this on Netflix and really enjoyed it. I might wait a few months and read the book. 

It helps that am obsessed with Leslie Mann.

Also, Olivia Wilde on Colbert is so close to perfection.

Late to the game but I’ve been admiring this lady’s hair lately.

Heading to the Robert Gordon Factory Outlet Thursday. Sale time!

Currently reading The War on Art. It seems I will re-read it for the rest of my life.

Oh, Hello on Broadway is on Netflix. YASSSS!

Are you a Catan fan? Follow this FB page. The more you read the better they get.

I need to find the time to watch all of these. 

Song Exploder: a podcast breaking down the song writing process with the songwriter. Start with the Weezer episode, continue at your own will.

The best article I’ve ever read on hair. Ditto, Leandra. Ditto.

I still can’t get enough of this song. So sue me.


Coffee Date, Because…

Regional Victoria is lovely. I know because I’ve been driving every-which-way around it for the past month, hence the amount of podcasts I’ve been recommending. This week I stayed in Ballarat and oh boy it feels like I’m 22 years old again. It’s the first time, since I met Jack, that I’ve felt alone. Not in a I’m-so-sad-and-lonely way, but in that majestic way of having free-time all to yourself. Usually, if I’m not with my husband, I’m with family, friends, or colleagues. But this time it’s just me, myself and I in this gorgeous Airbnb.

It’s funny how quickly one falls back into old habits. Before I shared a bed with Jack, I used to bring at least two books (one self-help, one fiction), two notebooks (one journal, one for ideas), whatever magazines I was skimming through at the time, my computer and my phone into bed with me. No one knows why, it just happened. And I always used to fall asleep to The Avett Brother’s music.

This week was like a 2010 re-run of my life in NYC. I woke up on top of Sloane Crosley’s novel “The Clasp” and singing “My heart like a kickdrum” every morning. I guess you can take the girl out of singledom but you can’t take singledom out of the girl.


This podcast has been keeping my spirits up while on the road. Start with the Adam Scott episode.

Still making travel resolution for 2016?

I love lists. And apps. And BJ Novak.

How good was Adele on carpool kareoke? While we’re at it, watch Jennifer Hudson’s too.

Are you still listening to Serial Season 2? Here is everything you need to know.

Zadie Smith on episode 4 of Lena Dunham’s Woman of the Hour is excellent.

Seth Meyers is the best for this reason.

A peanut butter cookie recipe that only needs 4 ingredients, guys!

I can’t believe this is true. But! great for watching on hot Melbourne days.

Obama goes in a car and gets coffee.

The scariest trailer ever.

The best trailer, ever. Can we buy tickets now?

The best of 2015 from The Onion. I can read this for hours.

My backpack obsession knows no boundaries. This is the new eye candy.

Did anyone else shed a tear when this legend finished his last professional game?

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.
