Posts Tagged ‘latte’
As I was thinking about my words for this post I came to a realisation… maybe the three extra kilos I’ve stacked on are a result of my Saturday tradition? I think I will just ignore this idea and maybe just do an extra half an hour exercise each week. Yes I think this is what I will do.
My Saturday tradition involves me walking down to Movida Bakery either on my own or with one of my friends, ordering a skinny latte and an amazing donut, I usually go for berry flavoured filling, or salted caramel. This Saturdays however I specifically went to sample something new; Movida Bakery’s “Dossant”.
Before I explain it to you here are some other names that were considered for this new pastry:
Cronut, Croisnut, Crodough, Doghnets, MoDo and DoVida.
It is a donut-croissant! The idea came from someone in New York called Dominique Ansel and MoVida have adapted it to their own. Mine pictured below is filled with, i think, raspberry and rhubarb custard. Delicious. And this is another reason why Saturday tradition must go on.

What i love most is going to new places, spending time with my friends and lattes.
I spent the first day of my holidays catching up with my best friend Andrea at Gardiner and Field in Armadale.
Hope you’ve all had a great week and hope you have an amazing weekend. Much love. Juliet x
Who doesn’t love selfies? I sure do :p

Today was my last day at my corporate job. I have three weeks off until I start my new course. I’m a bit scared but I’m a lot excited.
I’m absolutely loving my new lens. I took my camera around with me which is always so fun. I just wish it wasn’t so heavy!
I had no plans today but the day folded out quite nicely. I went to work, met my parents for a late lunch at Riverland by the Yarra. Then I went to the Palace Cinema and watched Paris-Manhattan. I became a member of Palace Cinema so that I can reach my goal of watching 365 movies this year. My original plan was to watch a movie a day but everyone around me told me it was a silly idea and that I couldn’t do it. And I listened to them, so I decided I’d change it and still aim to watch the same amount of movies. Which means I’ll have to have movie marathons quite often, and I have no problem with doing that. I’m quite excited actually, about both the film challenge idea and also becoming a member of Palace Cinema.
I took a flyer titled “Your Summer film guide” I’ve already ticked off two out of 12 films. Here’s the list:
1. Paris – Manhattan (Check)
2. Les Miserables
4. Jack Reacher
5. Gangster Squad
7. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
9. Life of Pi (Check)
11. Django Unchained
12. Anna Karenina

I’d just hopped into the shower after an intense PT ( Personal Training) session and was thinking about what to do with the rest of my day as it was only about 11am.
I remembered the $20 note that I had in my wallet that I took out incase I wanted to go to one of the cafes in The Cafe Guide. Then the coolest idea popped into my head.
I wondered how many coffees could I actually buy with the $20? Then, normally, what would happen is that I’d just write the idea off as ridiculous. However, I promised myself the other day after watching the documentary on Diana Vreeland that I’d try to be more like her. ( Someone in the documentary said that if they told Diana to go to the moon for a shoot that she’d hop into the space shuttle without even giving it a second thought.) So this is where my coffee adventure began.
1. Olie & Ari – 133-135 Were Street, BRIGHTON
This was my first stop. Such a cool cafe.The food
in the cabinets was very tempting. I didn’t have anything
because I needed to leave space for more coffee
Balmains was the second stop. I think I should have
probably stopped drinking coffee after the second one.
But I didn’t because that would be weak. I loved the coffee
cups at Balmains. They were so fancy with the nice gold
3. Pantry – 1 Church Street, BRIGHTON
This place was so busy it was awesome. I only had a coffee
but I felt like I should have really had something to eat. All
the food that I saw being served around me looked delicious.
The cool thing about Pantry was that on each table there
were black artist crayons. I didn’t ask anyone but I’m pretty
sure you would use them to write on the brown paper that
they had put on the tables. Awesome idea. I imagined diners
playing hangman, playing naughts and crosses or drawing
maps to show their friend how to get around etc etc.
4. Tuccibrown – 268 Bay Street, BRIGHTON
This was my favourite cafe for the day. I can’t believe I
didn’t know about Tuccibrown. It’s a stationery store/cafe.
That’s everything I love all in one place. I bought a vintage
camera stamp (so cool) and looked through some cool arty
books while sipping my coffee. (I was kind of forcing the
coffee down at this point. I had definitely reached my coffee
drinking limit but I still had money left!! GAH!!
5. The Little Ox – 452 New Street, BRIGHTON
I was dying by the time I reached this place. (I’d had way
too much coffee.) It was so lovely though. And the staff
were so friendly and smily. I would have loved to try one of
the pretty sweets, but it definitely had to be another time.
I fell in love with the butterfly art on the wall, it was so
pretty and I loved how the sunlight shone through the
Yep, this is the end of the $20 coffee adventure. I made it to 5 cafes and had $1.30 left. Thank goodness that wasn’t enough for another coffee because that would have been it. I don’t think I would have made it. It was an excellent
experience and all the cafes were really good. I’d never actually been to Brighton so it was a good experience. In case you were interested all my coffees were skinny lattes and I never take any sugar.
