Wining & Dining on the Peninsula

After a gruelling exam period that seemed never-ending and left me obsolete, the light at the end of the very long tunnel was a weekend getaway to the peninsula with the boyfriend for the purpose of undertaking a wine and food tour. Eating and drinking happen to be my two favourite activities, so I’m uncertain why I still spend my time studying law when it can never measure up to the joy of consuming tasty morsels and alcoholic grape juice.

Regardless, we had been looking forward to this weekend away for a few months and glorious weather was bestowed upon us for the occasion. We enjoyed travelling around Red Hill to taste the local wines of the region, an assortment of goats cheese and some delectable food. We visited about six charming places boasting different products from around the region that were run by passionate locals who were inspired by the beautiful area, and we were lucky to sample a fair bit of it.

Cider is the best because it is like apple juice and somehow alcoholic.

Yummy cheese from the very cute goat

The gardens at these winery estates were breathtaking with the array of colourful flowers in bloom and some seriously rustic outdoor decor. Although I’m sure the region has its aesthetic perks in winter, there’s no doubt that everything looks and feels better in 24 degrees with sunshine.

Ahh, the serenity. Now that uni has winded up for the year, maybe more escapes to the peninsula are in order. You know, just to improve my wine tasting and cheese-eating capacity and what not.

Midnight in Melbourne

The other night I went out with my family for my lovely sister’s birthday.  We threw on our finest and set off for a très classy evening at a fancy restaurant, expecting a night of delicious food and bad birthday singing. Needless to say, it did not disappoint, and the food turned out to be better than the singing.

It just looked so photogenic

I wore a midnight-blue and gold 80’s-esque number (minus the shoulder pads) that I recently bought. As soon as I saw it I grabbed it and knew I had to try it on because it’s reminiscent of a pink and gold dress that I used to wear back in the days of feathery scrunchies. Who doesn’t miss those days. I brightened it up with my red bag and finished it off with some smashing lippy. Red lipstick always makes me feel as though I can pull anything off.
