A real, real estate biatch!

A real, real estate biatch!
Imagine this, you are trying to find a rental property in the Inner West which is hotter than hot right now. Either the property gets snapped up before the open house or you are competing with 30 or so other groups of potential renters. On Saturdays you run from one open house to the next, and if like last Saturday, in temperatures that are more suitable for being at the beach. So its Friday afternoon...

So much happening on south King Street!

So much happening on south King Street!
I feel bad that I have been so neglectful of south King Street. Sure, I may have been a little preoccupied with making my house liveable but I recently took a stroll down south King Street and there are loads of great new things to see (well, “new” for me, probably not new for south King Street regulars). The first thing that grabbed my attention was the 7 Star Supermarket which makes a... 

What does swine flu, free speech and E.L.K. have in common?

What does swine flu, free speech and E.L.K. have in common?
What do they have in common? Stencil art! I have a new found respect for stencil art. It began when I visited the Australian Stencil Art Prize 2010 at the Oh Really Gallery last year and I fell in love with a great design by a very talented 16 year old. This infatuation continued while travelling in South America where I saw designs that completely blew my mind. It is difficult to imagine the number... 

Scootergirl’s Valentine’s Day Tryst

Scootergirl's Valentine's Day Tryst
Well surprise, surprise I was actually looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year! I had a date on Valentine’s Day! I woke up feeling loved and included and at total peace with the world. Normally on the 14th February I try and hibernate through the day, either not leaving the house or not leaving my office! Certainly I would not go to a cafe and pick up my take-away cappuccino and see... 

This is not a review of Catfish

This is not a review of Catfish
I can’t review Catfish, the latest movie about facebook, any info will destroy the story, so all I am going to say is, that yes it is about facebook, but it is very different from “The Social Network” movie. It will make you think about just how much our lives have changed in just a few short years due to the dramatic rise in popularity of social media. There is a photographer, a... 

Marrickville unit sold for $5,420,000

Marrickville unit sold for $5,420,000
Wow! 10/11 Hill Street, Marrickville must have been a very impressive 2 bedroom unit. It is described as a “stunning resort style apartment” in the advertisement. I wonder if this is a record sale for Richardson and Wrench Marrickville. And here I was thinking that maybe the real estate market might take a little while to get back into its pre-Christmas groove. Lots like someone has made...

Will the Inner West continue to be one of Sydney's hot property spots in 2011?
As the most popular real estate selling period commences for the year, the inner west  has kicked off the year with successful results such as 3 Edward St, Marrickville on the the weekend.  Some areas in Sydney are reporting sluggish starts to the property selling year and phrases such as a “buyers market” are being reported in some media.

Bourke Street Bakery goodness! (in Marrickville)

Bourke Street Bakery goodness! (in Marrickville)
I am in serious trouble… I have just discovered Bourke Street Bakery in Marrickville. Firstly, I can’t believe that nobody has told me about this place until now but secondly, my body is in sooooo much trouble now that I have discovered it. The worst thing about this whole situation is that the bakery is only a hop, skip and a jump away from my front door. This has disaster written all...
