Eating at: MJR TOM

Deliciousness on Smith Street – MJR TOM A great place to eat both healthy and unhealthy foods! I like cafes that are able to cater for both, as sometimes i’m not really in the mood to eat all the oil and all the fat. What makes MJR TOM great, is the fact that their healthy options are actually really yummy! Started off with the Wakey Wakey – beetroot, ginger, carrot, grapefruit, organic orange juice. SO good! Toss up between smashed avo (which i get all the time) and the Super Food Salad. Decided on Super Food Salad as can have smashed avo any time. A good choice! Kale, frisee, puffed wild rice, broccolini, roast pumpkin, walnuts, fig, goji berries and a poached egg. Very good with a really nice zesty dressing. First Super Food Salad that hasn’t been just a pile of green leafy blah. Going to try and recreate it at home! Xx Suri

Hermitage

Hello! If you’re a fan of beautiful classic artwork then a visit to the Hermitage exhibition at the NGV is a must! The exhibition is only open until the 8th of November though. Just managed to see it in time! “Masterpieces from the Hermitage: The Legacy of Catherine the Great showcases one of the world’s greatest art collections. Featuring works by artists including Rembrandt, Rubens, Velázquez and Van Dyck, the exhibition offers a dazzling array of works including the finest group of Dutch and Flemish art to come to Australia.” – NGV          It was really quite eye opening to see how much Catherine the Great valued art and modernising Russia during her 34 year reign. She collected art from all over the world. There was even a collection of precious jewellery and other artifacts from the Chinese Imperial Court. The whole exhibition made me want to visit Russia and see the Hermitage! Definitely a must see if you can get to it in time! Xx Suri

Stripes

Hey friends! Summer is just around the corner for us Melbournians! Sura is busy packing all the new stock to send over and summer styles will be going up online verrrry soon! In anticipation of summer, the other day I whipped out our Kelli Stripe Two Piece and wore just the skirt. It’s a super versatile two piece. Anything with stripes and I’m there! (outfit details: denim jacket – second hand, white top – staple, skirt –  stem of sky, sneakers – adidas, bag – Danielle Nicole) This particular day was pretty nice, mild weather. But my hayfever was out of control! So much as I love spring and all the flowers, I can’t wait until it’s over and I can breath again! You can purchase our Kelli Stripe Two Piece here. There’s only one left! Best fit is for a size 6 – 10. I’m a size 10 so the skirt fits fine, but the top might be a bit short on a taller girl (if you’re 170cm like me!). Xx Suri

Eating at: Little Henri

Have been exploring more of the North of Melbourne. I drive past this place all the time and finally found time to check it out! If you’re around Thornbury and you’re feeling like some particularly tasty eats, try Little Henri. Industrial vibe mixed with old world warmth. When it’s super busy the place feels really cosy with rich wooden furniture, leather seating, highlights of cool green and peeling paint feature walls. But when the crowd thins out you can appreciate the industrial vibe created by high ceilings, factory-like windows with black trims and oversized pendant lighting. I love the mix! There’s also what looked like a really nice outdoor area. Looking forward to sitting outside when the weather gets warmer again.          I had the smashed avocado with thyme buttered mushrooms, Persian feta and basil. It was amaze! Never had smashed avo with basil before. Interesting flavour. Usually I reserve basil for Pho and other Vietnamese related dishes, or salads. Have now decided to put basil on everything! The only strange thing I found about Little Henri is …

Eating at: Bowery to Williamsburg

outfit details: Coat and knit – stem of sky, jeans – Grab, bag – Country Road, shoes – Gorman Tucked away down Oliver Lane in the heart of Melbourne City is a cool American style cafe called Bowery to Williamsburg. Apart from a great selection of breakfast foods, bagels and sandwiches they also offer Mac and Cheese as a side. Even for breakfast? YES. It was great ^^ Mac and Cheese in the morning, always a good start. After such a hearty breakfast we ambled down to the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) to snoop around the free exhibitions. Always worth a visit if you’re in the city, the NGV is a beautiful space. I don’t go there as often as I should! This particular day i decided to wear our So Jin Long Grey Coat. Paired it with some destroyed light denim, a light weight knit and my Gorman peep toes. The weather was strangely cool but warm at the same time, hence the light layering. Nothing too heavy 🙂 Also made a little short …
