  • Pablo has been one of our favourite breakfast spots and its original owners Michael and Amy Bates have now moved on to develop their new cafe, The Priory Kitchen or the Priory. They opened the doors to their new cafe in Woolloongabba’s new Trafalgar Lane on Monday 22 August 2016, so we waited a couple of weeks before visiting to let them settle in.

  • Teneriffe and Newstead is seeing an influx of development, and the Lazy Dog Cafe is right in the heart of it. The cafe is across from Gasworks at the foot of a residential tower. Despite all the building activity in the area, the cafe was surprisingly peaceful and has a relaxing vibe.

  • Street after street of quaint houses finally opened up to a crisp white single-storey building, trimmed in black and polished decking. We caught up with friends for an early breakfast at the Blockhouse coffee + small bar.

  • Lokal + Co is located just off the main West End strip down O'Connell Street and was easy to find. Owners Norwegian expat and chef Herge Olsen and Corey Thoms have created a lovely space with a fresh clean aesthetic of crisp white and pine.

My Month In Review – September 2016

My Month In Review banner
September marks the beginning of spring here in Australia. Some jacarandas trees have already started carpeting the ground with their purple blooms and I cannot wait for the season to be in full swing.

Unfortunately it also spells the beginning of the busy season for us.

I’m already in the thick of it with work. It makes me so thankful we can afford childcare at an amazing facility, where they hire some truly lovely carers. Knowing Bubby is learning and playing with his peers in a safe environment gives me the peace of mind to focus, and the SO and I some space for sanity.

Not that it hasn’t been crazy around here.

[Gold Coast] The Avenue

After a long first day at the Problogger Conference, I headed back to our hotel to have dinner with the SO and Bubby. The SO had done a little scouting and decided we should try The Avenue on the Gold Coast. Who was I to deny the man a decent dinner?

Breakfast at The Priory

Have you already noticed that breakfast is our thing these days? Bubby wakes us up at 5:30am and goes to bed between 6:30pm – 7:30pm, so restaurant dinners are much rarer. Does that sound familiar? I’m not complaining though, because I got to have breakfast at the Priory.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Pablo has been one of our favourite breakfast spots and its original owners Michael and Amy Bates have now moved on to develop their new cafe, The Priory Kitchen or the Priory. They opened the doors to their new cafe in Woolloongabba’s new Trafalgar Lane on Monday 22 August 2016, so we waited a couple of weeks before visiting to let them settle in.

[Gold Coast] Betty’s Burger

When I booked my tickets to this year’s Problogger Training Event, we made it a bit of a family weekend down the Gold Coast. The SO booked our accommodation at the Hilton Surfers Paradise. The Gold Coast has seen a revival in preparation for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in 2018. This has meant there are lots of new restaurants and cafes in the area over the past two years, which is fantastic. The Gold Coast Betty’s Burgers is one of two outlets in the American style burger chain, and it is within walking distance of our hotel.

Problogger Training Event 2016

Problogger Conference #PBEvent2016

If you are following me on Twitter or Instagram, you might have noticed I recently attended my first Problogger Training Event. The Problogger Training Event 2016 was run by Darren Rowse (Problogger and Digital Photography School) and his team. It ran over the course of several days on the Gold Coast, with talks, workshops and masterclasses by international and local speakers.

It was INTENSE!

There were three talks and 2-3 workshops going at any one time. I was often spoilt for choice and the information sometimes felt overwhelming.

But it was worth every minute. I was inspired by the speakers, as well as by fellow attendees I spoke with. I was motivated to take action on things I’ve been putting off. I felt welcomed by a diverse community of entrepreneurs, writers, photographers, educators, entertainers, geeks, parents, fashionistas…

I walked away from every session with a tonne of notes and actions, so here’s my review of the Problogger Training Event 2016 sessions I attended.
