Lucky Sunday: National Brownie Day: Dello Mano

Lucky day! I was procrastinating from uni work today.... so I decided to go for a walk to Dello Mano @ Newstead since everyone was raving about their brownies. And yes they were indeed delicious! On top of that it was National Brownie Day and they were giving away 16 piece box of Dello Mano brownies by lucky draw. Of course I put my name down for the draw and won delicious brownies from Dello Mano!
I not only, not have to do work but on top got to enjoy all these delicious brownies. The atmosphere of the café was very chilling perfect for a Sunday arvo wind-down and staff were very lovely.

Let's Talk Rings! Can You Match It?

Last week, got a very exciting project from Invaluable. One of the world's premiere online market place featuring all sorts of rings, watches, antiques, collectibles...etc. They are looking for bloggers to be inspired by one of our rings and accessorize a look it!
A classy and elegant look inspired by Genuine 8.50 ctw Emerald & Diamond Jewellery Ring with 14K White Gold (Lot: 8845)


Perfect statement ring and outfit for a fancy high tea date, dinner or upcoming Christmas functions....
 The monochrome outfit was designed to bring out the colour of the green gemstone on the ring. To match it green earrings and clutch were included to complete the look. If you put the whole look together people wouldn't have guessed where they even came from.  
 How to replicate the look:-
1. Target strapless structured (corset like, pleated top and wide bottom) midi dress
2. Betts black stilettos
3. ASOS green, gold and silver earrings
4. NARS silver black nail polish (Night Breed)
5. Cat eye sunglasses (a bit of  Breakfast to Tiffany's)
6. Link silver necklace
7. Sportsgirl clutch
8. Napoleon Rouge Lipstick (Madrid)
The next look will take us from classy end of spectrum to the party end! Inspired by Ramon Teixé 1873-1926 Ring with bust, early 20th Century, which I call it "Party with Rockin Ramon Teixé" ;p.
This is more of a free spirited look not so matchy matchy! It's more of rock fusion party fusion quirk fusion rustic!
How to replicate the look:-
1. Cotton On black crop
2. Blue and white skirt from Chapel Street Melbourne
3. H&M bronze studded black point short boots
4. H&M bronze crosses
5. H&M earrings
6. ASOS round sunglasses
7. Chanel black nail polish (219 Black Satin or any black nail polish)
8. La Biosthtique bronze lipstick  (G316 Sparkle Brown)
Hope you guys like them xoxo

Festive Spirits: Sugar Coma on Plates

21 more days to go....... Got our X'mas spirit ready! X'mas Party!
Favourite part was not the alcohol but the Krispy Kreme Donut Buffet, scientifically speaking - tons of lipids and disaccharide on a plate. >.< Still ate it!

Saturday - Something Healthy
Riverside running and granola muesli yogurt breakfast @ Riverbar Kitchen  with Tiffany

Another reason to go there is to check out their donuts - listed as one of the best donuts in Brisbane by Urban List .

Highly recommend Avocado Toast with Fetta for savoury breakfast- Delicious!
If sweet breakfast is preferred - white chocolate honeycomb, mascarpone hot cake would be my pick

Eating Melbourne

Buffet Breakfast at Intercontinental on Collins Street -  Beautiful and classy interior with great customer service even when we went in with a discounted Groupon voucher (Food shown in picture are only a small part of what we had).
The Hardware Société on Hardware Street. One of the popular must eat place for breakfast, especially their baked eggs, coffee and hot chocolate. On weekends there's usually packed with people and long line ups.
Little Cupcake at Degraves Street
Hopetoun Tea Room, Collins Street within Block Arcade. The arcade represents the late 19th century charm and beauty and, within it is the ever Hopetoun Tea Room with their gorgeous and delicate sweetness. *always a line up (yet to try it)
KoKo Black, Royal Arcade CBD. Yummmmmmy chocolates and desserts - highly recommend their salted caramel chocolate.
Lygon Street for Italian Food! Bravo!
Cupcake Central, Melbourne Central - Best red velvet cupcakes ever, must try. There's also other very exciting flavours which I will have to try next time.
Le Belle Miette, Hardware Lane. The best macaroon I have had yet. I used to think Ladurée macaroons are the best but now it would have to be L Belle Miette. 
Burch and Purchese, Chapel Street - love everything!
Hot Jam Donut, Victoria Market - 5 is just not nough

Something healthy to break down the disaccharides.
  Cupcake family, QV - known for their cake decorations
IMG_3472IMG_3473 IMG_3474
I Love Dumplings on A'Beckett St. Cheap and authentic tasting Chinese - 15 pieces of dumplings for $10!!!!!
Other Macaroons I have tried during my stay in Melbourne but still Le Belle Miette is still the favourite
Breakfast at Southern Cross DFO, despite what the outlet shopping centre look like. The restaurant inside was very nice and had a great atmosphere with a man playing piano while we had a breakfast.
Having a coffee and chilling at Federation Square near Flinders Train Station
Degraves Street, Laneway Breakfast. Really enjoyed my laneway breaky experience!
