What I Wore: Statement Basics at The Stables of Como
Recently, I've been obsessed with graphic/statement basics. Be it a tee or a jumper. It's so easy to wear and goes with just about anything. You can dress it up with a skirt or go casual with just a pair of shorts and slip on sneakers

Food {Melbourne}: Macarons By Josephine 2

The title says 2 because this is not my first post on them. Click here to read my previous post on By Josephine.

I just can't get enough of their macarons. It's so chewy and full of flavour! :) It doesn't help that it's right behind my house in Melbourne. I can literally crawl and reach there within minutes. 

One fine Sunday, I took some of my closest friends with me to this cafe to share their awesome macarons. Needless to say, they enjoyed it! 

That's my 'very-satisfied-with-my-macarons' face.

Have a great day everyone.

Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed my macarons. 


Food {Melbourne}: Macarons By Josephine

There are only a few macarons places that I frequent. First is


, second is La Belle Miette and lastly Brunetti's. All the other macarons have this strong almond taste in them which I don't quite fancy. To be honest, I've tried Laduree's macarons before and I think it's a little bit over rated. Just an honest opinion, don't hate on me Laduree fans out there. :)

is a new macarons place located on Sydney Road, which is just nearby my house in Melbourne. *yeay!* Their macarons are smaller than usual but just the right size for macarons I reckon.   Usually you get overwhelmed by all the sweetness of the macaroon, you can only have 1 or two. But this one, I can have 5 all to myself! #omnomnom

Lucky me, the owner and baker of By Josephine was there that day. I had a brief chat with her and found out that she used to supply to other major dessert places. She only recently decided to open her cafe and cater directly to the public. Bless her soul for doing so, if not I wouldn't have discovered this amazing place. Not only does her macarons taste good, it's cheaper compared to all the macarons places I mentioned. A box of 12 macarons would cost you around AUD28. :) I hope her prices wouldn't increase in the near future though. Yummy and affordable macarons is the way to go!

Looking at all these pictures makes me wanna go back for more now!

My favourite flavour would be the salted caramel and black sesame. They just melt in your mouth, oh my. Remember to eat them fresh, they taste much better than leaving it in the fridge over night. Her specialty are those infused with flower flavour like Jasmine and such. The baker used to be a florist hence the floral influence in her macarons.  Also, do try their French Kumi tea. I had their Earl Grey tea and it went very well with the macarons. 

Let me know if you've been there and what was your experience like. :)

Food: {Two:Bob}

My last food post was back in February!


So here's another food post on a cafe called Two:Bob. This quaint little cafe is hidden at a corner in Fitzroy North. With simple white interior decor and excellent food, this place would make the perfect place to have your weekend brunches.

Here's a little fact on the building that Two:Bob is at:

  • It used to be a bank building. There's a vault in the cafe which they used as a store room. How amazing is that?

When you dine at Two:Bob, you MUST try the

crumbed poached eggs

. In my opinion, it was the best breakfast out of all the selection that they have. My mouth is salivating just looking at the above picture of the runny egg yolk oozing out... YUM! :)


Happy and satisfied brunch lovers.

Have an awesome


everyone! :)
