Bloomin' Marvellous

Limited numbers of handmade Bobbie and Lola bloomers are now available from I Heart Gallery in Sydney, Australia! Run by fabulous Sunny, the shop stocks a number of indie designers from around Australia, as well selected vintage items. Sunny also regularly organises markets and other fun events - check their Facebook page for more information. 

These bloomers are made from vintage tie fabric which was originally produced in Germany. If you're interested in getting hold of some but aren't anywhere near Sydney, feel free to get in touch via my Etsy shop and I'll be happy to make them to order!

Some things I've seen and eaten in the last couple of weeks. 
Ron Mueck show at Hauser and Wirth
Slow-cooked miso marinated pork belly at Akasiro in Chinatown. Lovely, especially when paired with hot steamed rice.
Insanely detailed chocolate creations at Choccywoccydoodah in Fouberts Place. 

Be warned - enter with your sweet tooth in tow. My friend Sheree and I shared the peanut butter milkshake and chocolate sundae between us - a dastardly concoction of chocolate ice-cream, whipped cream, brownie, fudge, some kind of berry jam-like thing, as well as plenty of chocolate buttons and who knew what else. We had to admit defeat about three-quarters of the way through. The milkshake tasted like a cold, soft Snickers bar (if you like that sort of thing, which I do), and went down slightly easier, but we still left without finishing the whole thing.
St. Paul's looked lovely in the last light of day.
