Our sunny Autumn morning started with a coffee at Soldier On in Prahran, then into the city for a New York style lunch at Bowery to Williamsburg. A photo walk took us through China Town’s laneways, then over to Curtin House for a browse of one of Melbourne’s best (and remaining) bookshops, Metropolis. Finally, what better way to end a glorious Melbourne afternoon than a cheeky donut or two at Shortstop.
Lately we’ve been out enjoying the warmer weather in Abbotsford and checking out the new Mpavilion, wondering whats behind the beautiful doors of No.74 Collins Street, exploring the bright playful Emily Floyd exhibition at the NGV, falling in love with my new funkis clogs, hanging out with my adorable nephew who came over from Perth for fun times in Melbourne, watching asparagus bubbling in the warm afternoon sunlight and treating the hubby to a hot towel shave and beard trim at Men’s Biz for his birthday.

Last Sunday we took advantage of the sunny spring weather and strolled the colourful streets of Fitzroy. I love the incredible street art and huge murals. There always seems to be new art to discover every time we visit.
Over the weekend, Mark and I celebrated another year (and surviving another winter) living in Melbourne. Now, four years into our Melbourne adventure, I’ve been reflecting fondly over our first year here; remembering the excitement and fear the first time I caught a tram and hoping it was heading in the right direction; walking the city like a tourist taking photos of everything we could see and strolling the city laneways for hours in wonderment.
I’m one of those people that has never really worn a watch, but since hearing about Stock watches I may just change my mind.
Stock watches are inspired by a collection of watches accumulated over the years by Melbourne based designer David Tatangelo. David says, ‘the watches were designed over a period of 2 years, working through a rigorous process of prototyping and field testing to get the proportions and colour ways right.” He said the focus of the final design was on legibility and comfort.
