HOT: The Hatton Hotel, 65 Park St, South Yarra

Sometimes a break from the routine is a good thing for the soul. So even though I live, work and play in Melbourne I relished the opportunity to take a weekend break at The Hatton Hotel thanks to my friend K. The Hatton is a 20-room boutique hotel located near the Botanical Gardens in South Yarra, which […]

HOT: Long Weekend in Bendigo (Part 1) – What to do

Hope you all had a fun and restful long weekend! Did you go anywhere interesting?

HOT: High Tea at Lobby Lounge, The Westin, 205 Collins St, Melbourne

I can think of no better way to spend a cold, rainy afternoon than in front of an open fireplace drinking tea.

HOT: Lost & Found Hotel Room, Little Collins Hotel, 27 Lt Collins St, Melbourne – Part 2

I like myself the most when I’m on holiday. I’m positive and energised, I’m endlessly curious about places and people, I’m intensely mindful of my surroundings and I take the time to enjoy small moments. So when the temporary Lost & Found Hotel Room told me that they had room at the inn for two […]

The Cullen is a glamorous boutique hotel in Prahran which has been inspired by artist Adam Cullen, and it’s one of the series of Art Hotel popping up in Melbourne.

HOT: Chocolate Indulgence Afternoon Tea, Aria Bar and Lounge, The Langham Melbourne, 1 Southgate Avenue, Southbank
