More and more businesses are combining food and fashion markets to lure the punters to their events. It seems to be working very well, based on the hugely successful The Forage and Hustle and Scout collaborations held every two months in New Acton. Honky Tonks held their very first Night Market shindig, featuring artists, designers, crafters, music records, vintage and second hand goodies, terrariums and made to order tacos!
Smiling girls and hip hop beats greeted me as I walked into the invite-only event to launch a European cider – “MOKAI, heavenly cider”.
My usual style is very feminine – I wear skirts and dresses most of the time. But occasionally, I like to experiment with an edgier, urban look. This was one of those times. And it was an added bonus that the grand total of this bargain outfit came under $50!
I have just found out about an exciting foodie event happening this weekend! Cooking Mexico will be running a cooking demonstration at the Market Kitchen in the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets.
Vitis Eatery, which opened last week, is the “new kid on the block” in the Braddon precinct of Canberra. Owner Lucia Kovacova, originally from Slovakia, recently moved to Canberra but said she would happily spend the next 30 years here. I’m hoping she keeps her word because the newest addition to the vibrant collection of eateries on Lonsdale st looks very promising and ticks all my boxes so far. Funky decor. Tick. Delicious food presented … Continue reading
After my first visit to Local Press in Kingston, I was kicking myself for not discovering this gorgeous cafe earlier. On a recommendation by fellow food blogger, Rachi, I decided I had to check out the place she had been raving about!
All the chatter recently on my Twitter feed about good places to eat in Paris, coupled with Megan‘s outfit that she wore on the 101 Humans’ Day of Food and Wine, inspired my latest outfit! I just love the simplicity of this colour scheme.
I was bombarded by news of the opening of BentSpoke Brewing Company on Twitter and Facebook today. The microbrewery and Canberra’s newest brewpub is located on the corner of Mort and Elouera streets in the hipster area of Braddon. Swept up in the excitement of it all, I gave in to my FOMO (fear of missing out) and spontaneously decided to check it out after work. I did some intelligence gathering on Twitter while I … Continue reading
Indian Affair in the City is the offshoot of Indian Affair Restaurant in Phillip. They originally tried an Indian-Italian fusion menu, which was not particularly popular with Canberra customers. Personally, I think the traditional Indian cuisine works much better – as evidenced by the $10 lunch I tried there! On this occasion, I ordered the butter chicken, which came in a takeaway container. This butter chicken can be described with one word. Luscious. I had … Continue reading
The Human Brochure tourism campaign that I have been taking part in was featured on the ABC news tonight! The camera crew appeared at our last winery today and my friend @LindaSoo was interviewed for the piece! Watch out for my cameo at the end with the Erna, the “selfie Queen”! If you missed it on TV, you can watch it online at the link below! http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-05-31/canberrans-turn-tourism-ambassadors/5491776?section=act I have also uploaded it to my Youtube … Continue reading
