Kids these days freak me out, especially when it comes to technology. E’s two year old niece has understood how an iPhone works since before she was walking, most tweens are more technologically advanced than the next twenty something and there is always some form of new tech on the market (I still don’t understand how an Apple Watch works)! Back in my day (now I sound old) my siblings and I weren’t allowed mobile phones until we were working weekend jobs to pay for our own credit, we had one computer in our house that we had to take turns on if we wanted to play on or browse the dial up Internet, and video game consoles were just that, consoles to play on. No connecting to the Internet to verse strangers, no headsets or chat, just good old fashioned fun. And that is why I was delighted to be invited to check out Perth’s one and only video game museum and gamers hub The Nostaglia Box in Northbridge a few weeks back. As …
A friends birthday is the perfect excuse to gather the troops and discover a new (to us anyway) cafe! Last weekend saw my lovely friend F celebrate another birthday, in style of course, and the first stop on “The Day Of F” was a lovely foodie gathering at Northbridge’s Tarts Cafe. With an extensive menu and reviews to boot it was the perfect spot for celebration.
I’ve certainly got room for a few more darlings in my life. And Northbridge’s Darlings Supper Club will be one of them. The modern asian fusion eatery can be found on Lake Street in the city, and is one of Perth’s newer late night venues boasting sexy cocktails, an extensive decadent menu and a rocking late night experience.
Give me sunshine and a good coffee and I’m one happy girl. This particular morning saw V, Lu and I gather in North Perth for a gossip session and a tasty breakfast. I’d been itching to visit the cafe, assuming a coffee shop with the name Cuppa Joe would serve a good cuppa joe. And I was right. Although I hadn’t heard too much about the cafe we were keen to give it a shot, and Urbanspoon’s rating sealed the deal. The bright, stylish eatery is located just off Scarborough Beach Road and although it was a little bit hard to find (thanks GPS), it was well worth the semi-confusing city drive.
If you’re looking for a simple but tasty meal in a spacious, airy spot then Opal Cafe fits the bill perfectly. The Northbridge eatery is light and bright and the perfect place to meet up with friends.
I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I dolled up on a Sunday evening and headed out for a Sunday session.
My friend C comes all the way from NYC. At one of her recent parties we made authentic s’mores; gooey Hersey’s chocolate, graham crackers all the way from the USA, marshmallow fluff. It was perfect, besides the fire wouldn’t light and I ended up cooking my dessert with a Bic lighter. Almost there!
