Most people end up denying themselves some kind of food, but in all honesty I don’t think I’m really improving anybodies life if I cut out one of my favourites; a Beth without chocolate, cheese, coffee and wine is not a happy one. Instead, this Lent I am focussing on taking up something new focussed around the idea of self-care because we definitely all need more of that in our lives.

I’ve never been one to bother too much with my hair, in fact when getting ready for a night out it’s usually the thing that I often fret over a bit, give up and attack quickly with the GHD’s. Usually for me, a blow dry is something that consists of a quick blast with a hair dryer when I finish at the gym so I don’t turn into Elsa from Frozen on the way home. So when Duck & Dry invited me in to try out the newest branch of their boutique updo and blow dry bar I was pretty excited!

Let’s face it, the morning after the Oscars I’m more interested in who wore what than who won what. I love gazing at all the frocks and red carpet looks, but I absolutely despise the negative judgement that seems to spit its way out of the media. In fact, if you Google ‘Oscar dress’ right now the first two hits are titled ‘worst dressed on the red carpet’ and it makes me really quite angry.

Say g’dday to the newest member of the Daisy Green Collection; Timmy Green. This Aussie inspired all day eatery is one of the first to open its doors in the new Nova complex in Victoria, an area which has felt for many years like a rather chaotic building site.

I was invited to dine with compliments from the Daisy Green Collection. All views and imagery are my own.

Today, faced with my never-ending to-do list, a weekend of essays ahead and the release of exam timetables, I had a little freak out. It’s not a big deal; we all need one now and then and I think I was due a good stressing out session (earlier in the week I had yelled at my hair straighteners for not heating up fast enough, so that says it all really).

Whilst Queenswood is by no means for the most frugal of brunchers, the quality of the food and the creativity behind the menu is unquestionable. A simple avacado on toast is jewelled with pomegranate seeds and fresh chilli, cuddled by marscapone and finished with an Instagram-perfect yolk.

Pasta has long been a favourite amongst households country wide, and yet it is rarely ever star of the show. Even in the nicest of restaurants it can often appear as somewhat of an after thought on a menu, lacking in both imagination and love. Not at Emilia’s; the 35 cover restaurant which opened last month in the tranquil setting of St. Katharine’s Dockyard is a testimony to this humble Italian staple.
