Brewtown, Newtown
When I first heard that Berkolouw books in Newtown was shutting down I have to say I was more than a little sad. It was a great bookshop in an amazing warehouse type space made even more amazing by the Ramen Bar that was open on the ground floor for a brief...

Paper Planes, Bondi
Miss Piggy and The Boy dined as guests of Paper Planes . One of the really great things about Sydney is that if you're craving (or missing) a certain type of cuisine there's a good chance you can find it right here...on our doorstep.  Which is VERY lucky fo...

Thank you for a frightening, confusing, strange and dangerous time. What more could a girl ask for?
This is my second dress for the #sewDollyClackett challenge . I've gone ahead and used my lovely palm tree fabric I bought in Tokyo as I figure an Irish lass like Miss Clackett, who's living in grey old England, must long for a bit of sunshine and palm tree...

Balcony Garden: Harvest Monday #63
A few posts back someone commented on my post about my sandwich with balcony grown lettuce as being just about the most underwhelming blog post ever . Well, my friend, I'm about to exceed all of your disappointments with this post! The Boy and I started the...

Harajuku Gyoza, Potts Point
Miss Piggy and The Boy dined as guests of  Harajuku Gyoza. We're not long home from our week in Japan and we're really missing the vibrancy and kookiness of Toyko . Luckily for us a visit to Potts Point's newly owned Harajuku Gyoza transports us back to Jap...

Mandy Boat Tee + a Tessuti Class
When I VERY first started sewing (which is exactly 46 weeks ago in case we're keeping tabs...which I am) I REALLY only wanted to sew clothes made from stretch fabrics. It's what I mostly wear so it's what I was hell bent on sewing. Why would I sew anything ...

Balcony Garden: Harvest Monday (the end for now)
I'm feeling a bit burnt out by the balcony garden. I've been toiling away on the balcony for about two years now and it's time me and my green thumb took a bit of a hiatus. I'm feeling a bit lazy at the moment and need to think about my next step for what I...

My Japanese Fabric "stash"
As promised, here is a little look at the fabulous fabrics I bought during our visit to Tokyo's "fabric town" area . All of the fabric came from a store called Tomato . The name of the store is so kawaii (cute) I can hardly handle it! Of course, hindsight i...

Random Tokyo Eats, Japan

Story
Tagline
The journey of a girl...her stomach and her sewing machine.
Introduction
My "adventures" run to admin assistant by day, struggling cook (and novice seamstress) by night. I need to eat out to ensure I don't starve. I love catching up with friends over something yummy. Cheap and cheerful are my favourite places to eat, but I don't mind fancy schmancy every now and then. Sometimes I try to cook, but it mostly never ends well (though I am getting better in the kitchen even if I do say so myself)! I'm a foodie blog addict...not that I read them at work of course.

Trying my hardest to be an ethical eater. Learning to sew, enjoy growing edibles on my small balcony and I foster kittens for Cat Protection Society.

Live in Sydney's wild wild west.
