The Melbourne sharehouse: a cultural icon

The sharehouse has been immortalised by film, literature and the cultural memory. A pile of shoes sits at the door, while a stack of mismatched crockery balances precariously in the sink. Ash and empty bottles litter the dirt-encrusted carpet. The hum of overlapping routines fills the air. The sharehouse setting, so familiar to many, has... Continue Reading →

underneath the stars

  It's the most wonderful time of the year... I cannot believe that Christmas is only two weeks away. Which, for me, means that there's only one week until I hop on a plane and fly to London! I have spent the last few weeks relaxing in my hometown, catching up with family and friends.... Continue Reading →

book review: the cure & INXS

I officially finished my second year of university a couple of weeks ago. Yay!! Melbourne has had pretty nice weather lately, so I have been spending most of my free time reading in the sunshine. I read the INXS official autobiography, and the memoir of one of The Cure's founding members, Lol Tolhurst. Both books... Continue Reading →

Screams, whistles and a heavy push forward signal the entrance of the band. Within seconds everyone is moving to the beat, smiling up at the stage and basking in... Continue Reading →

The island was surprisingly quiet for my visit. While driving around the island, the cool scenery reminded me of those lovely little... Continue Reading →

Cactus Country

I recently ventured to Mexico with my friend, Georgia. Just kidding. We visited Cactus Country, a huge cactus garden located just a few hours away from Melbourne, in Strathmerton. The 10-acre dreamland is home to over 10 thousand species of succulent and cactus. There are also many gorgeous murals amongst the plants. Georgia and I explored... Continue Reading →

Sunset over Eagles Nest

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and indulged on waaay too much chocolate. I know I did! My flatmate's family was kind enough to let me stay with them over the Easter break. Their home is situated in the picturesque Gippsland region, so I had a very relaxing break from uni life. One chilly evening Sarah and I... Continue Reading →

weekend update: 26/3/17

So, I had a pretty busy weekend. Here's how I spent it... Friday night: some friends and I had dinner and drinks at Fonda Mexican in Richmond. Mexican is my absolute favourite cuisine, so I was having a wow of a time. Afterwards, we went to the Corner Hotel to see Vallis Alps. They were insanely... Continue Reading →
