HOT: Thread Den Market, Lithuanian Club, 44 Errol St, North Melbourne

I LOVE markets. I will even travel across town for an hour on public transport on a Sunday morning to get to a market if it’s being organised by the lovely ladies of Thread Den. I’ve written about sewing lounge Thread Den before, and they’ve now have expanded their little empire to encompass an occasional […]

This coming week is filled with travel, rock, films, shopping, food and parties! Tony Wheeler, the co-founder of Lonely Planet, is speaking at The Hive at The Order of Melbourne on Tuesday 24 November.

I’ve absorbed quite a bit of knowledge on photography and light while watching ‘fierce’ Tyra Banks and a bevy of model wannabes. That’s not to say I didn’t […]

HOT: T2 Tea Too, 340 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

So, another thing to tick off the wedding to-do list was to find a tea set. I wanted something that was vaguely Oriental, without any gaudy gold leaf or dragon/phoenix […]
