Ever since I moved to Melbourne I’ve wanted to visit the Old Melbourne Gaol! One of Melbourne’s oldest architectural buildings right at the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, situated on Russell Street, only minutes’ walk from the train station and one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Our experience at the Old Gaol started by getting arrested at the 1900s City Watch House. The Watch House Experience lasted for approximately half an hour, one of the most interactive and engaging experiences I’ve had in a museum. We had a female Charge Sergeant as a guide, who made the whole experience so real. We…

Ben and I love to go out to brunch on the weekends. Nice coffee, a beautiful meal, chat about our week, make plans for the weekend and week ahead. We’re a little picky and meticulous with pretty much everything and it is no different when it comes to food, which made finding a good local cafe near our new residence quite tricky.

Check it out if you haven’t…

Roughly 2 months ago I purchased some of the so famous Sukin Skin Care products from my local chemist. I’d heard they are great and affordable so why not try them? I might have gone a little overboard but they did have a sale on, perfect opportunity to try as much as possible. I purchased the Facial Moisturiser, Facial Masque, Mist Toner, Day Cream and Rose Hip Oil which is used after using the Day Cream. Add New Sukin has now become one of my favourite brands for skincare products. All products I’ve tried from Sukin have natural ingredients and gentle formulation,…
