Collective Haul from Ally, Glassons, Forever New, Boohoo and Dresslink

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Hey guys! So I've done a bit of shopping lately and I want to show you what I've gotten this time :) I will try to link everything I got below to their websites.

Most of these clothing are from Australian based store. 

The first shop I went to is Ally! I got two skirts and one basic top that I plan to wear for work. The first one is this grey midi skirt for $19.99. I love how stretchy the material is without being sheer at all. The length is perfect, it falls just below my knees. 

I also got a blue skirt with China print for $25.99 that is super adorable! This skirt actually comes with the matching top but I didn't really like it when I tried it on, it was a bit too much pattern for my liking. The skirt has a small slit at the back to make it easier for you to walk. The material is also a bit stretchy but not as much as the grey one. 

The last thing I got from Ally was this basic grey top that comes with an in-built bra for just 9.99! This top actually reminds me of Kookai basics without its price tag. Overall, I think it is very versatile, you can wear it on many occasions. A must have!

I just got a cute stripey top for $14.99. It's a cropped halter neck with low back. It comes in so many colours, perfect for summer!  

I got a denim jegging that was on sale for $39.95. On its label, it said 'EUROPEAN DENIM' and gosh it is so comfy! I love how stretchy and smooth the fabric is!

I got a cardigan from Boohoo a few weeks ago here in stone colour but I don't really like it. So I actually got another one in mustard for $24 and I love it!

The last shop I went to was Dresslink and I got another elephant two-piece set in white this time! In my last post, I showed you the set in black. The white one is exactly the same but I sized down this time, I bought the Medium one instead and I like how it fits me better. 

So that's it guys, I hope you enjoyed my haul and have a good weekend!

Brunch at COWBELL 808, Surry Hills

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Last Saturday I had the chance to visit Cowbell 808 in Surry Hills with my friend, +Ashley Lu 

It is 10 minutes walk from Central Station and a few hundred metres away from the famous Bourke Street Bakery. 

The Atmosphere

It was really quiet considering how busy other places are on the weekend, which I LIKE! :) 

The service was excellent, we quickly got seated and attended to. 

The menu

I honestly like the menu. It has a wide variety of selections that you can choose from. I like the all-day breakfast menu, so I don't have to wake up early to grab brunch. 

Drink menu...

They also have a $12 special menu on the board next to the kitchen.

The Food

Ashley ordered The Vegetarian baked eggs (spinach, eggplant, braised tomato, eggs, eggplant and chickpeas served with flat bread). I had a bite and it was really good, I could definitely taste the tomatoes in it. Not a big fan of the eggplant though!

I was actually torn between the pancakes or the corn fritters. I was a bit worried about the bacon vanilla ice cream that would come with the pancake, so I decided to try that next time.

I got one of their special, corn-fritters with bacon and poached egg on a bed of rocket and parmesan. I honestly didn't realize there were parmesan in it until I saw it on the menu lol... Where should I begin? The corn-fritters is so crispy and delicious. I have not much to say about the bacon and egg, but when you put all of them together in your mouth, oh damn! It was so delicious.
I love the sweet chili sauce which adds flavour to the dish.

As for the drinks, I got an orange juice and Ashley ordered an immunity juice. 

Immunity juice is made of orange, apple, carrot and ginger and in my opinion the ginger was strong. Nevertheless, both juices were very sweet and fresh.

Orange juice ($6) and Immunity juice ($6)

And that is happy Ashley, loving her meal :) We will probably come back in another time to try the other stuff!

I would definetly give 'Cowbell 808' an 8 out of 10 :)
