So many Sydney restaurants have been closing lately. It seems that every Tuesday when I open Good Living, there’s news of another closure. And so many places I never got to go to either!
I feel particularly bad for Justin North who now has only Becasse Bakery in Westfield left. Charlie & Co is still open but has been bought out (read, won’t be the same).
Apparently hawker food is in and fine dining is out.
Here’s the latest lot of casulties.
I’ve been thinking this week about whether material items make me happy. It seems that sometimes they do. Here’s a few things I’m loving right now.
1) My owlies
Selina gave me the pale, spooky looking green owl for my birthday in April. Then Mel & Jay bought E & I the dark green, stern looking owl as part of a house warming gift. The two of them look so cute sitting above our fire place.
2) This lovely print of La Grand Place in Brussels – one of my favourite locations in the world!
3) Nude by Nature, Oil Free Moisturiser.
I only just bought this product on Wednesday but already my skin is clearer, brighter, smoother. I realise I sound like an infomercial but it’s true! I guess there really is something to be said for Mineral based products. Currently looking into their other products!
4) I love this money box. Would it be silly to buy it for myself? I love the whimsy and the Enid Blyton-esque style. And at $5, it’s so cheap, it’s practically free! Yeah, I can justify anything.
5) All of the illustrations by this artist.
