Date night at Spice Alley, Chippendale

One of the best things about living in Sydney is that there are SO many restaurants to choose from! We were looking for something different for date night and came across the Spice Alley, a hawker style eatery in Chippendale. It is located 1km from Central Station in Kensington street, so it’s super easy to…

DIY: Bookcase revamp

Moving countries means refurnishing a home, which makes me (the Blonde) very excited! We had a couple of furniture items shipped over from South Africa, but a bookcase wasn’t one of them and we had a stack of books that needed to be stored.  We were looking for something that was solid timber and didn’t…

Delicious “Health” Rusk Recipe

As South Africans, one of our favourite things to have with a cup of tea or coffee is a rusk. This is a recipe that Jenna’s (the Blonde) mom has made for many years, so when we make it here in Australia it reminds us of home.

Sydney’s Hermitage Foreshore walk – What spectacular views!

There is no better way to warm up on a chilly winters day than a nice brisk walk!

Tijili Boutique Hotel – an oasis in Seminyak, Bali

We knew we wanted to stay in Seminyak, so we jumped straight onto booking.com and managed to find an awesome boutique hotel called Tijili in Seminyak – about a 5 minute walk from Seminyak beach. Tijili is a new hotel that has been open for less than 2 years but they seem to have gotten everything right.

Birthday celebrations at Moosewood in the Kangaroo Valley

I found an amazing house on Airbnb called Moosewood. The property is located on 40 hectares of farm and bushland with views of the valley and mountains. The house is based on a traditional barn design, it is an old shed that has been converted into a 4 bedroom house with open plan dining, kitchen and living room. The house is light and airy, yet warm enough and cosy on chilly winter nights. The design of the house is cleverly thought out and it has been tastefully decorated with great attention to detail. (We could have stayed for ever!)
