Second Vlog

Juliet Sulejmani | January, 05 2016

Hi!

I posted my second Vlog yesterday (it’s the Youtube clip I’ve added at the top). I’d love you to check it out and subscribe and like the video if you like it.

It’s an update on how I’m going on my challenge so far.

I went to 2 new places:

I read 1 book:

It wasn’t a full week, so I didn’t get a chance to watch any movies or make any new recipes, but there will definitely be more in next weeks vlog.

On days when I can’t stop dreaming about New York, I go and I sit in Starbucks in City Square.

It always reminds me of New York and the first time I went there when I was seventeen.

On the second day that I was in New York, my cousin and I went to Times Square. It was a freezing cold day and she took me to Starbucks, and we both ordered a Venti Signature Hot Chocolate with cream.

Marion Wine Bar

Do any of these venues ring any bells?

  • Cutler and CO
  • Cumulus Inc
  • Supernormal
  • Luxembourg
  • Builders Arms Hotel
  • Moon Under Water
  • Meatsmith

What about the name Andrew McConnell?

If yes, then Marion Wine Bar is another that venue that needs to be added to that list and then you will also know what you can expect from it.

If not, then I have given you a great list to begin your Melbourne Exquisite Dining journey.

Pictured is everything I ate with my friend Suzanne last night, not pictured is the Fish that we also ordered.

I highly rate and recommend Marion Wine Bar. It’s totally worth it and so are you!

Tall Timber

So…something that I realised. If you stop doing the things that you love, you will lose yourself and your inspiration.

One of my favourite things to do is go to new places and especially to new cafes. And since becoming a freelancer about two months ago, I haven’t been doing as much as I used to. Which explains why I haven’t been feeling like myself lately.

I had a Juliet Day today and went to the art store, I went to the gym, I went for a walk and I checked out a cafe I hadn’t been to yet, but had seen people IG repeatedly. That cafe is Tall Timber.

Tall Timber is at 60 Commercial Road in Prahran. I must say, I was super impressed when I got my coffee. In all the time I have been drinking coffee and visiting cafe after cafe, I have never been presented with a swan in my cup. Boy was I impressed. So clever.

I ordered the: Wild Cacao, Gogi + Organic Oat Granola, with seasonal fruit (strawberries, blueberries and fig,i don’t think figs are actually in season?), honey vanilla yoghurt. Loved it. I eat granola at almost every cafe that I go and this is in my faves list.

It was actually the perfect day to go in there because it was raining and I sat in the front window and read my book, it was so cozy. I’m still reading Open Secrets by Alice Monro. Oh and the atmosphere is great and the staff are really nice and cool. I’d totally go back and I’d really like to sit at the communal table next time.

Tip: Even if you don’t have to go to the bathroom at cafes always go to the bathroom. Cafe’s have the best bathrooms. Trust me. That’s where I took the selfie!

doughnuts and nail art

2014.10.03_walkers donuts packaging 2014.10.05_nail art

As well as looking out for cool cafes and burger places in Melbourne, I am also looking for yummy doughnuts. I’ll try and make a list one of these days of all the places I’ve found and post it up here.

I went to Walker’s Doughnuts the other day, I don’t mind them, and they are convenient as they are opposite Flinders station on the corner of Flinders Street and Elizabeth street.

These last few days I have been homebound with a cold which is not very exciting. So to keep busy I gave myself  a CommePlay manicure, and my sister a kitty cat manicure. And because it is so fun I have decided to be a nail artist. No not really, but wouldn’t that be such a great job? I was going to apply to TrophyWifeNail Art but then realised I am too busy trying to be a fashion designer and so have no time to also pursue a career as a nail artist. insert sad face here. So in the mean time I will just decorate the nails of anyone that will let me.
