I stumbled upon Nom Nom Korean during my first few weeks living in Brisbane. I found myself at a loose end craving something fresh yet flavoursome for lunch. I was enticed by Bakery Lane, where Nom Nom is situated. An enchanted looking little lane off Ann Street in Fortitude Valley not far from from Brunswick Street Mall that takes you to a courtyard of foodie heaven. You can get coffee in a cone from Flock Coffee, delicious looking crepes from Le Petit Paris Bakery and 2-4-1 Steak frites on Tuesdays from The Apo, which is only some of the great delights awaiting you.

Well it’s been 7 weeks since we arrived in the land of Oz and boy have we done a lot in that time. We moved into our fully-furnished flat on 5th September and have been living here for just over a month now! The block of flats is 15 floors (we live on floor 7) with a roof terrace, gym and swimming pool and our windows open right up to give a balcony effect and you can see the top of the Story bridge (above) in the distance.

I love a bit of history with my coffee, that’s why when I heard about Bunker Coffee on Brisbane Broadsheet, I just had to come and check it out! It’s a popular place with a lot of coffee competition around, but in the half an hour that I sat there, it was visited by office workers, families and passers by. It’s a popular spot, and I spotted refillable Bunker Coffee mugs in loyal customers hands. They even encourage you to bring your own refillable mug which I like as they’re not just out for you buying one of theirs to get a discount. They actually want to be green without the advertising that some coffee chains insist on. Continue reading
Being brand new to Brisbane, it was time to make some friends and what better way to do that than over brunch! I had joined Girlcrew Brisbane on Facebook and a few girls had said they quite fancied getting together. One of the girls had suggested The Roastery Cafe and what a great suggestion it was.

Edinburgh’s Leonardo Royal Hotel sits grand and proud just off Morrison street in the Haymarket area of the city. Perfectly located for all of Edinburgh’s transport links to the airport and other parts of Scotland, with a train station, bus and tram stop within 7 minutes walking distance, it’s conveniently located for any traveller. Once a Premier Inn, it has undergone a major refurbishment to boast 282 rooms at 4 star standard.
What can be better than afternoon tea aboard a vintage red double decker bus on a sunny Saturday afternoon? The afternoon tea is available everyday apart from Mondays and there are two time slots – 12pm and 3pm. We went on the 12pm slot and I had bought the tickets for £22.50 each on itison.com, and I have seen the offer come up a few times since. You will pay £34.50 via their website so it’s a decent saving.
