The Ultimate Pumpkin-spiced Girls’ Day In

 

PSLThere are many wonderful things about living in Melbourne. And one of them is the unseasonable weather we often experience. Which is great, because while the northern hemisphere starts gearing up for “the fall” and eating and drinking all things pumpkin spice, we have a small window of time where we too can enjoy. So on this rather cold-ish Saturday in October, we made the most of our last cool days by eating and drinking like autumn has suddenly reappeared. Wherever you are in the world, if you’re also a lover of the cooler weather, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin-y goodness, read on. (more…)

10 Things You Must Eat in Japan

Japan Must EatsIf there is one thing you should know before going to Japan it’s that the food is amazing. Make sure you bring your appetite before visiting the Land of the Rising Sun because you are not going to want to miss out on any of the food on offer. I personally found that the standard of food in Japan is much higher than in other places I have traveled. I could confidently walk into any restaurant and know that I was most likely going to have an excellent meal made with fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection.

Since I only spent 10 days in Japan I wasn’t able to eat all the things, but I sure did give it the old college try. There are probably some glaringly obvious things that I missed so leave a comment below and let me know what your Japan must eats are.

14 Times Brooklyn Nine-Nine Proved It’s the Funniest Show on TV

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was always one of those shows that people told me to watch but I never did. I was always like ‘yeah, one day’. But when that one day finally came and I sat down and watched it, it was the best decision because it’s absolutely brilliant! So if you’re looking for a new favourite show then this is it. It’s on Netflix so ready…set…binge (watch).

It’s one of the few shows that literally makes me LOL, and often too! Every single character is hilarious. It’s set in the 99th Precinct of the NYPD in Brooklyn, but it’s not so much about the cases, it’s about the people solving them.

19 Unforgettable Australian Commercials from the ’90s

Aussie Australian Commercials Ads 90s 1990s

When you think of iconic Australian commercials, what comes to mind? “Not happy, Jan!” by Yellow Pages?  It’s hard to forget the creepy Smith’s Chips Gobbledok which was a cross between a Gremlin and ALF. Mortein’s Louie the Fly was practically an Aussie mascot (until they got rid of him – RIP Louie!). How about our latest advertising gem – the Rhonda and Ketut story by AAMI? Maybe it’s the ones with the catchy jingles that stick with you. Like the “My Dad picks the fruit” song by Cottee’s Cordial, “You ought to be congratulated” by Meadow Lea, “Make those bodies sing” for Australian Bananas, “Good on ya, Mum” by Tip Top or Banana Boat.
