2017 Challenge Update
**I’m going to post each week in a separate post**
- PLACE: Jethro Canteen
385-389 Burnley St. Richmond 3121. Ph (03) 9421 2900
Great vibes, nice open space, exposed brick walls and a lot of green. I had the Coconut and almond milk Chia pudding with almond milk, freakin’ awesome jelly, mango, cashew cream, nut granola, (HERE’s MINE), and of course a latte. DELICIOUS, highly recommend, so yum!
- PLACE: Father’s Office
249 Little Londsdale Street, Melbourne
Went here for some drinks with friends, It was a great night for sitting out on a balcony and watching the city go from day to night. I’d been here before when it was called Match Bar or something, and liked the vibe much better than before. We didn’t eat, but they had this really cool dining area. I had an aperol spritz, I must say it wasn’t the best I’d had, but it was one of the happy hour drinks, so I guess I got what I paid for.
- BOOK: To Capture What We Cannot Keep – Beatrice Colin
I was given an advance copy of this book by My Bookshop.
Really enjoyed reading this book. I actually couldn’t put it down. The book is set in 1887 Paris right before construction begins on the Eiffel Tower. There is a romance, historical references and fashion references. I hadn’t actually read any fiction set in Paris in this time, and I loved being taken back to this era, it also made me curious and I started researching the French Revolution again. I have a lot of favourite quotes from the book, here are a couple:
– “Jamie” she said, “Before you start your matchmaking, I’d like to point out that he wasn’t even wearing a hat!”
– “Ice flowers, as snowflakes were sometimes known. He caught one in his hand and watched as it melted into a drop of water.
Were beautiful things more beautiful when you couldn’t keep them?
