Melbourne secret palette

One of the most fascinating things about Melbourne has to be the large amount of what I'd like to call: secret restaurants. When we are out and about in the city it's cool to pop into one of the many ethnic restaurants on the main streets, but it's even better to wonder off the empty alleys just around the corner and discover new places! This seems to be something quite common in big cities, which makes sense considering the endless possibilities of warehouses and garages that could be turned into bars, and sometimes they are pop-up places destined to stay open less than a year. Needless to say that not even Melburnians know Melbourne

Time and effort

A couple of my friends from France came to visit me in Melbourne, and for the first time since I moved here I felt a little bit at home as I told them something about the city, showed them around, and wrote down a list of things to do, see, and especially eat while they're here. I've known them for quite some time now but it was the first time for my boyfriend to meet them, I was hoping for him to like them at least half as much as I do. Because God knows sometimes silence can be awkward! 

The necklace paradox

The other morning I was going to the city with my boyfriend, although I'd like to say I went there for a massive shopping trip, I was actually there for a job interview. He has a passion for cars and when we are sitting together on a bus, or when he's driving, he wouldn't miss pointing out the newest or most expensive car around us. 
So I was sitting by the window looking at that car, which apparently is full electronic, real carbon fiber cup holders, airbags bigger than Nicki Minaj's rear and it makes you coffee in the morning. No it doesn't. I was staring at it and I stopped listening because in that moment, stuck in traffic, under a grey sky and drizzled by rain, the car didn't look half as fancy as it did in the showroom. How does something go from looking super luxurious and sparkly to dull? 
I found myself contemplating the whole situation and finding it unexpectedly quite familiar. It is only now that I have discovered the answer: necklaces!

Break time: tea and cakes

Every time I go to England I mentally prepare for a 5pm high tea with the Queen. Because that's gonna happen, right? And now that I'm on the other side of the World, but still in the Commonwealth, I feel like I'm still allowed to think of afternoon teas. So start stretching and tying your runners because the following post might be pretty high in sugar. 

My snack deprived childhood

You don't have to get two just because it says it's 2 for $3.
This is what my boyfriend told me as I reached for a honey-flavoured snack bar. The first snack was for him, I wasn't being greedy but the man standing next to us let out a big laugh and nodded at us. Way to make me feel guilty!

Warning: Explicit Containers

Hello everyone! I can now happily announce that I found  enough strange things around to write a first post about them and share them with you. The theme this time is "containers" but of course I went a little bit off-topic.

The anatomy of a villain

A few weeks ago I wrote about Disney princesses, which brings me to today's question: 

Which kind of villain would you be? 

The choice shouldn't simply be based on the charm and charisma of the character, that would be too easy! There are in fact a couple of personality traits that define every villain and might apply to your most evil desires.

A lot of sky

For this post I wanted to take you out of the Supermarket (but click here if you want to check that out later) and into the city. This one is a real city. With skyscrapers and yellow taxis, with unexpected places worth stopping for a picture. But most importantly with something I would like to call "a lot of sky" as the lack of mountains surrounding me never ceases to amaze me.
