Pram Dayz

Pram Dayz
One of those Days!!! It was a lovely sunny Autumn Sunday and my husband suggested we take a walk and try out the new cafe/restaurant – Bar Nosh on Swanson St, Erskineville. Unfortunately we didn’t realize at this stage that our toddler was just coming down with a fever, and while he is quite well cafe – trained, things are never good when he is sick. First there was an irrational... 

The Different Drummer

The Different Drummer
I’ve lived in Glebe for the past 3 months and I had shockingly never ventured out around Glebe Point Road at night time. The street is bursting with beautiful restaurants, a few pubs and some smaller bars. It is my mission to eventually visit them all but on a student budget this may take several years! One bar that’s always caught my eye is Different Drummer. Any night of the week it seems to... 

Design Needs Less Mercenaries and More Guerrillas

Design Needs Less Mercenaries and More Guerrillas
After you see these designs and posters you are going to ask : Where can I get one? Why didn’t you tell us about this exhibition earlier? Well the answer is… I didn’t know about it! I quite accidently parked outside Fraser Studios in Chippendale and stumbled across this exhibition on the way to the White Rabbit Gallery. The “Design Needs Less Mercenaries and More Guerrillas”... 

Glebe Tram Sheds

Glebe Tram Sheds
Ever since I had seen a couple of photos of the Glebe Tram Sheds online, I have been desperate to get inside to check out some of the graffiti. I was just a little worried about two things; whether or not I would be able to get in and of course, safety once inside. So I popped around on a Saturday afternoon to suss out the situation and luck was on my side because the tram sheds were open as a movie... 

Scooter School, Scootergirl Realises She Is Not A Natural (Part 2)

Scooter School, Scootergirl Realises She Is Not A Natural (Part 2)
My head was starting to hurt, this damn helmut is heavier and bulkier than I imagined. It was break time (thank goodness!) which meant my first helmut removal move. I had pictured this scene in my dreams many, many times. Hot, skinny, Italian chick in tight, tight, painted on jeans stops in front of a crowded cafe in some quaint Italian piazza where only drop dead gorgeous Italian men are chatting... 

Scooter School for Scootergirl (Part 1)

Scooter School for Scootergirl (Part 1)
Recently I signed up to learn to ride a Scooter so I could become a real Scootergirl and not just a Razorgirl Scootergirl. What was I thinking, really? I have never, ever ridden on a motorcycle, well maybe once I was a passenger on a scooter in Thailand but that was too many years ago, like when I was in my early 20’s. So the reality of getting my scooter licence, well it suddenly hit me on... 

Piggy bank raided! Finders Keepers Markets to blame!

Piggy bank raided! Finders Keepers Markets to blame!
Clear your schedule for the weekend Inner Westies because the Finders Keepers Market is in town this Friday and Saturday. Sure, you are probably thinking that I am always raving about great markets in the Inner West but nothing beats the Finders Keepers Market which only happens TWICE a year. This event showcases the work of over 60 emerging designers and artists from all around Australia. I will... 

White Rabbit Gallery ROCKS!

White Rabbit Gallery ROCKS!
My first visit to the White Rabbit Gallery in Chippendale was amazing and I can’t believe that I have never been before!  The gallery’s current exhibition, Decade of the Rabbit, is a celebration of the 10th year of the Neilson’s family collection of 21st century Chinese art. Entering the gallery I was instantly drawn to the gorgeous tea house with beautiful bird cages hanging from... 

Ears @ Camperdown

Ears @ Camperdown
I have missed walking down King Street and seeing the work created by Ears next to the Crumpler store (not that I don’t also love Phibs latest addition). But I was happy to discovered that Ears has been very busy at Camperdown Park. He has added his distinctive touch to the area as only Ears can. LOVE IT! [View with PicLens] ... 

BAKE SWEET LOVE! The name says it all!

BAKE SWEET LOVE! The name says it all!
I can think of a lot of words to describe Luxe Bakery in Newtown, but BAKE SWEET LOVE, which is on the front door of the bakery sums it up perfectly! It may seem surprising to many Inner Westies that I hadn’t, until recently, been to Luxe Bakery. Whenever I walk past the cute brick cottage with the massive red heart on the side wall I pop my head in only to find all the chairs and tables packed...
