Bentley Bar

Ive been here for drinks before but have always wanted to sample the menu.You think you know alot about food until you go to a restaurant like this and they're so inventive and interesting.
Love the interiors as well,lots of mid 20th century pieces and I love this Eames fabric.

At the Table

Some of my favourite images on flickr are of people enjoying a meal or a drink,the setting they have created or the environment they're in,lots of different light.
Each image brings out a different feeling and you ask,are they with friends,maybe a quiet time alone to enjoy a treat and a cup of tea,or celebrating with friends over drinks.

Change of seasons

Is it wrong that I want to buy a scarf now in spring to wear next year.
This is what happens due to the different seasons around the world,I find the most perfect blue wool scarf now.

I'm Sad

The very cute turquoise and bow earrings I loved on Etsy has been sold.
See,that's what happens when you don't buy them on the spot.
Lesson learnt.

Little pouch

I thought it was about time to make something new,to start sewing again,and since it was raining yesterday and I was sick(yet again) ,it was the perfect opportunity.

I found this tutorial for a little pouch on the Craft website,after a while I couldn't follow the instructions so just made a simple pouch,and since it's bigger than the one on the actual tutorial,i could fit in a few make up items,a great little pouch to keep in my handbag.

You'll have to excuse the not so great sewing,still trying to work out how to use the machine,and it was the first time attempting to insert a zipper.

This Is

What I do with a spare 10 minutes

Firstly,lists,i need lists otherwise I will go out and not get half the things i want done.Also,spending some time just before bed jotting things down,helps me sleep,knowing I haven't forgotten anything.

I'm a recent convert to this speed cleaning,ok it's almost 10 minutes but what a great idea,just spend 15 minutes a day on those mundane tasks you just wish would go away after a long day at work,it helps everything run smoothly and you're not stuck at home spending most of the weekend cleaning.

No Fights...Yet

At Ikea

On Saturday my friend and I ventured out to Ikea to get some ideas for when we move in together soon,It was good to get an idea of each other's style and unlike others who go to Ikea,we didn't argue.Always a good start.

I've been starting to freak out recently about this move,not knowing which way to go first,do I try and find a job first,what If we can't find somewhere to live or stay while looking for something,I'm sure everything will turn out ok but I have these random mini panic attacks.

If anyone has any advise about moving interstate I would love to hear it.

I would also love to get some recommendations of second hand furniture stores in Melbourne if anyone can help.
