HOT: Bared Footwear, 1098 High St, Armadale

This warm weather heralds my first pedicure for Spring and a chance to wear my new sandals from Melbourne-brand Bared Footwear. I’m on my feet a lot more these days which means that shoes need to be comfortable, supportive and last more than a few rides around the block. My search for the perfect sandals […]

HOT: Coin Laundry, 61 Armadale St, Armadale

It’s a testament to the power of positive reviews that a small cafe on the opposite side of the river to me, hidden in a residential area, can capture my attention such that I’ll make a special trip there early on a Sunday morning. Such is the pulling power of Coin Laundry. Just like the […]

HOT: Magnolia Square, Malvern Town Hall, cnr Glenferrie Rd and High Street, Malvern

Magnolia Square is a pop up market that comes to Melbourne a few times a year (and goes to other Australian cities) and it’s full of stylish goods aimed mostly for women.

Supply & Demand seems to be a seconds/overstock store stocking an eclectic range of homewares, books, toys and kitchenware, but not in a trashy dollar-store kind of way. I’ve seen items from Supply & Demand featured in design magazines before, such as the wooden letters which seem to be so prevalent these days. My letters […]

HOT: Magnolia Square, Malvern Town Hall, cnr Glenferrie Rd and High St, Malvern

I’d been really looking forward to my first trip to Magnolia Square, a temporary market in Malvern Town Hall full of beautiful handmade things. Evidently, all of Melbourne’s yummy mummies had the same idea and it could easily have been mistaken for a pram convention. I felt like I was missing an accessory! To get […]

HOT: Phillippa’s Breads, 1030 High St, Armadale

Philippa Grogan is the doyenne of her eponymous artisanal bakeries in Melbourne, and her breads and pastries are right at home in chi-chi Armadale. Although I really did fancy one of her expensive cakes for lunch, I opted instead for a pasty ($7.50) as I was starving and in need of carbs. It was an […]
