Going from one office to The Other Office, Osborne Park


When it comes to working in Osborne Park, your lunch options are pretty limited. Sure there's the sushi van and an Aroma Cafe, but outside of that it's usually better just to bring your lunch from home. Thankfully there's one little ray of sunshine within walking distance from my work called The Other Office. 

Bright, airy and actually quite beautiful it's a welcome breath of fresh air for this area. They offer a simple menu - salads, sandwiches, burgers and some different options like lemon chicken peri peri salad and coriander crab cakes.

A taste of Italy by the sea at Il Lido, Cottesloe


Warming weather, sunshine and sea breeze. Yes, spring in Perth is absolutely gorgeous. On days like these I feel like I need to get out of the house, even though it's tempting to stay in and relax since it's the weekend. 

Taking advantage of the warm afternoon I invited my mum to go out for an early dinner down at Il Lido in Cottesloe. I love spending time with my mum - she's hilarious and loves her food more than me. She's also a great cook so I'm constantly picking her brain for tips and recipes.

A merry little breakfast at The Merrywell, Burswood


Going out for breakfast on the weekends can be such a treat, especially when it's with my boy. Being in his first year of a paramedicine degree and working weekends with St Johns means he's usually up early on Saturdays and Sundays off at work. Last month and this month he's on night shift though which means we had some time to go out for a breakfast date! After deciding we'd go out on Saturday, he suggested we go down to The Merrywell to try their breakfast menu which was launched in July this year.
