the do’s and don’ts of finding a grey

Entering the latter half of your twenties comes with a whole new world of bodily changes.  For me, my metabolism has slowed. right. down. and even thinking about food goes straight to my hips and thighs. Another great discovery I recently made is grey hair. I’m not embarrassed about it as there is nothing I…

curiosity killed the cat

The proverb, curiosity killed the cat, holds a different meaning to me than its intended purpose. In a nutshell, “Curiosity killed the cat” is a proverb used to warn of the dangers of unnecessary investigation or experimentation. For me, I always thought it was the curiosity of not knowing something that kills you. The yearning…

when was the last time you visited your grandparents?

Two weeks ago I lost my Nonno. Two years ago I lost my Abuelo. I often have moments where I forget just for a second or two that they are gone, as in my mind it doesn’t make sense. It’s a strange feeling to lose someone who has been a part of your life from…

why i need to stop saying i’m ‘lucky’ at work

the inner west’s best sushi

I love sushi. But I really really love Yume Sushi. Located in Drummoyne, Yume has to be the tastiest sushi the inner west has to offer.

pour decisions: the wine pair cheat sheet

i’m taking a stand against ‘fast-fashion’

After you’ve roamed the stores at Sydney airport, waiting around for your flight is a situation where time seems to slow right down; that is unless you’re running late of course! Throughout a recent Instagram mindless scroll, I kept seeing stories of people praising La Prarie and their airport activation. Up came trusty google and…

and then a hero comes along

On Fridays, I usually finish work early to kick-start the weekend and I often find myself at the shops ‘just looking’ and not spending any money whatsoever… Yeah right! I was aimlessly wandering around Mecca recently and saw the Go-To sheet masks on display and thought I’d give it a try. I’ve heard so much…
