Throw Back

Majorrrrr throw back to brunch when Main Street Cafe at the Story Bridge hotel had just opened. This is one of our very favourite places. Seriously if you have not been there, hop to it! Pork belly bacon, uh-mmm yes please! Our weakness! I think these photos are at least 6 months old but my outfit choice seems completely practical given…

Post Holiday Cheer

So we all know what the first week of January means… SALE TIME!! We won’t say it’s our favourite time of year – we couldn’t possibly be that shallow – but there is something about the joy of uncovering a bargain. Anyway… these are a couple of our finds. If you follow us on Instagram, you will have seen that…

Stormy weather

Seems like it’s going to be a stormy summer this year in Brisbane. A nasty one rolled through a few weeks back. Thankfully we were undamaged but with the power out, we looked for a silver lining, which was of course going out for dinner. Oh, and by the way, A’s shoes were part of our Diva’s Wardrobe haul – $50 if…

Double Plaid

We celebrated B’s recent return from her Turkish travels with a meal at Statler and Waldorf – a great little gastronomy pub in Paddington amusingly named after the two grumpy old men from the Muppet Show.  We booked on a new app called Dimmi – online restaurant reservations in the same vein as the must have OpenTable, which we have used to…

Locally Sourced

Three occurrences are responsible for this post 1. I spent a weekend recently at North Stradbroke Isalnd, aka paradise and while I was walking along one of the gorgeous beaches I came across a drfit of pumice stone. Hey presto – nature’s exfoliater. I picked some up and took it home with me. 2. I fell in love with an olive…

Peasant and Public

Two great restaurants on two different nights. You may have picked this up from the vastly different weather conditions we are dressed for. B enjoyed a night of simple and delicious Spanish tapas at Peasant, while A sampled the menu at uber cool Public (Hawaiian potato curry with fresh coconut and lychees… er mer gerd!!). We couldn’t finish this post without…

Gala on the Green

I am 99% confident that this dress is up in my top 3 when it comes to favourites in my wardrobe. Being that it is not your every day dress, it was great to have a new occasion to get frocked up, the last being my 21st. The Gala on the Green Charity Ball’s theme this year was fire and ice – not sure…

The Diva’s Wardrobe

Held a couple of times a year, this event unites divas with enviable wardrobes with those suffering wardrobe envy – a marriage made in heaven. We had heard about it through Instagram and Facebook posts bragging of legendary hauls but were always otherwise engaged… until last Sunday. We saw from Fashionista Events (register for updates in your city!) that the Diva’s Wardrobe was planned, so we saved the date…

Post-Crop Care

Not too long ago, A made the decision to go under the scissors, much to hairdresser George’s delight. In fact, the words ‘I think it’s time for a change’ had barely been uttered before he unceremoniously sliced a foot off her ponytail. Change it is, then. Like all good surgeons/hairdressers, George provided some post-crop care instructions Keep it clean Keep it hydrated I…
