Holidaying on the coast

By | December 24th, 2018|family, holidays, parks and gardens, weather|

I feel so very lucky to be holidaying on the coast this year. It is so luxurious to skulk around in my pyjamas and drink coffee. The water is a beautiful temperature. It is so refreshing and lovely to swim. And it is nice to spend time with family. I don't think that I would [...]

What was the last film you saw that made you feel so very good to be alive? Green Book is one of those films. It is a wonderful story of friendship. The kind of friendship that warms your heart. 95 % of people who saw this film loved it. The audience clapped. It left me [...]

La Mauvaise Reputation – Forty Five Downstairs

By | December 10th, 2018|music, theatre|

What a beautiful evening! I absolutely loved listening and watching the Mauvaise Reputation at Forty Five Downstairs tonight. It really was a beautiful evening of gorgeous French music. They play a mix of Gypsy swing music and the French chanson from the 1930s in Paris. Such cheerful and fun music. I am planning to buy [...]

Friyay – a spring evening at TNE

By | November 23rd, 2018|bars and restaurants, daily life, professional, weather|

Friday afternoon feels like right time to get out and get amongst it. There is a certain decadence of getting cosy in a new favourite bar that I have found and soaking up the atmosphere. After a lovely day at work and a beautiful brunch with some family friends, I feel like life is definitely [...]

November birthdays at a rooftop bar

By | November 18th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends|

The Loop Bar in the city is such a nice venue for a dear friend’s birthday on a lovely Saturday afternoon in the world. The lush plants and green walls were the perfect backdrop for photos of the party goers, dressed in sparkling gold. We sipped on wine, soda and cocktails and supped on various [...]

Luxurious Sunday morning for music and sunshine

By | November 18th, 2018|daily life, music, parks and gardens, weather|

Starting again on a Sunday morning in November. The sun is shining and the birds are singing and I have no particular place to be and nothing pressing to do. I am actually craving my running playlist and I am wondering if I should get out for a run. It is a beautiful day :-)

trainspotting on a sunny spring day – video

By | October 23rd, 2018|daily life, design, weather|

Travelling by train through these amazing Melbourne landscapes will never get old. That is what I think. I captured this video of the trip from Flinders to Southern Cross, which is one of my favourite sections of track. It was a particularly happy, sunny day and I was loving capturing my experience, or at least [...]
