Ah biggest hangover Sunday, my body clock decided to actually work today when I was in desperate need of a sleep in. J and I took the opportunity to check out a new local cafe "Maslows" as the Spring weather kicked on.

Once a police station/garage the space has been transformed into the perfect breakfast/brunch spot with industrial vibes, alongside wooden fittings, long share tables, white washed walls and green succulents next to the condiments.


In need of a sugar fix I ordered a hazelnut shake because they were out of chocolate today, nor did they have brioche bread for my "Mr. Pig" burger. The bagel bread definitely sufficed, with a beautifully runny 62°C egg, baby salad, tender braised pork, Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise and a sweet chilli kick. So tasty and only $10. J ordered the "smoke on the water": house smoked trout, pea soup, beetroot cured egg and chorizo oil. Cutting seafood out of my diet at the moment kills because I really wanted to have a taste! She loved it and thought the coffee was a tad cold but "nice". Looks like I'll be back soon to give the coffee a try and order something sweet off the menu too.   

Today I wore my new slides and necklace after a long awaited ASOS order. The sandals are a little big so I've got to grip my toes on real tight but I'm still loving them. For the necklace I hid the dove charm behind my neck, preferring the finer and double layer detail. 

Till next time!

spring



Another season and another fresh start. I ticked off all the to do list including cooking a "quick" Jamie Oliver pork sausage meatballs, tomato sauce, spaghetti and sweet peas dish. I re-egnited my passionate love for with Adam Brody, making intense eye sex on him as I watched the new show "the Cosmopolitans", and then proceeded to touch up my French "skills" via the wonderful game-like app Duolingo. Here's to Spring and September, and day dreaming about Paris!
