Brisbane Food/Restaurants – #2014BloggerChallenge

Hello Lovelies,

I love food! I’m fairly certain that’s an understatement because i seriously love it, I especially like trying new things, so I thought I’d share with you the handful of restaurants I’ve tried this year (or since I’ve been dating my new man). We actually have this little tradition going where we alternate between who gets to pick a restaurant each month and then have a little date, trying new places and new foods.

Wagaya Japanese Restaurant

I actually did a date night post about this one which you can read here. This is one of my favourite Brisbane restaurants, I’ve been here more than once now and can say that I absolutely adore it. The service is amazing and the experience is so unique. We ended up getting:

  • Tonkatsu Kushiage – which was deep fried pork
  • Takoyaki – these are AMAZING deep fried octopus
  • Yakitori – marinated chicken skewers
  • Ox Tongue – a lot of people get weirded out by the sound of this but it really is amazing, and I would definitely recommend.
  • Eel Tempura – can I just say YUMMM
  • Chicken Nankotu – Now when we ordered this we though it was just chicken pieces but it was actually soft bones that you ate, there was chicken as well, eating this was definitely an experience.

      (At the top is the Yakitori and the bottom is the ox tongue)

    Caravanserai
    This was one of my picks (again) and it’s a Turkish restaurant in West End, I’d never had Turkish before and my friends and family were telling me it was amazing, so I simply had to check it out. Alex and I ended up getting this massive platter which was more than enough. I absolutely adored the grilled Halloumi, I can’t wait to try it again.
    Jujuba Asia
    Last week Alex and I went to the Brisbane Comedy Festival and paired it up with dinner at this place in the Valley. Most of the selections were typical western asian food, and we picked the pork belly and sweet and sour chicken. Although they were somewhat familiar, they were in their own way unique and both tasted amazing.

Hello Lovelies, 

Unlike my usual uni days,  I had some extra time to get ready and decided why not change it up from my typical go to neutral eye. Firstly I was just going to add winged eyeliner but I thought, am I really just going to go half crazy? No sir, definitely not, so i added some black, cause why not?!? I really like the way it turned out.

Nail Inspirations and Bloggers – #2014BloggerChallenge

Hello Lovelies,

Boy, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted but since then, I’ve been sick, the internet went down and not to mention I started back at uni, which made my life super busy. But what better excuse to actually post something decent than post my 2014 Blogger Challenge post.

As much as I wanted to do a NOTD, I really haven’t been loving any of my nail polishes enough to paint my nails. So instead of showing my nails, I thought I’d share some of my fellow bloggers and instagramers and their amazing fingertips, in no particular order of course.

Geeky Owl

This blog has to be one of my favourites, all of her designs are so creative and I love seeing her nail creations. Here is her latest post.

The theme was Mardi Gras, and it’s so awesome and totally takes in the bright colours that surround that particular event.

The Happy Sloths

Every time one of Jasmine’s posts pop up on my feed I get so happy, since they are always so incredibly cute. She utilizes a lot of nail decals and they always work for her and go amazingly with her polishes. Here is her latest post.

Love that mustache!

Ginger Loves Makeup

When it comes to Ginger’s nail related posts, I just love her selection of polishes, they are always so gorgeous. Here is her latest post.

Such a stunning teal shade!

Paint Those Piggies!

If I could get any nail/beauty blogger to do my nails it would be Erin from Paint Those Piggies, her designs are so unique and I wish I had her talent. Here is her latest post.

Anniep1124 – Instagram

Although Anniep1124 doesn’t specialise in nail art or design and instead is the instagram account for an online jewellery store, she still shows some gorgeous fingertips. Here is two of their latest nail arts.

Who’s your nail inspiration?
