Rather than a weekend filled with the usual suspects – ample walks along the coast, brunch at Lox Stock & Barrell, and more Gelato Messina than I can handle – it’s been fairly quiet, as I’ve kept myself locked indoors to cram in as much as possible before my final exam on Tuesday. With the prospect of having my evenings and weekends free once again (post-grad studies on top of full time work leave a lot less time for ‘play’ than you might think!), I’ve put together an overwhelming list of cafes, bars and restaurants to check out over the summertime. For the reader who asked me to share a little bit about exploring Sydney, I’m hoping that this will be the push I need to start ‘eating my way around Sydney’ as it were, and put it into writing for a mini travel-guide for the blog.

Oh, and if you missed yesterday’s post, I’m doing a wee giveaway to say thank you to all my readers. You can enter here! x

    Those flats are so much fun! I like yours better than mine, haha…mine. They’re a pretty blue color but I hate Libra’s scale sign. But that’s good, I wasn’t tempted to buy them. And that jacket is just too perfect!
    Good luck with your exam!!!

      Oh that’s great! I figure it’s probably going to take me a little longer than I’d like to put it all together, but with plans to eat out all the time this summer, I figure I’ll have it up in no time 🙂
