First. and Fine Foods

Since my last post, I attended two beautiful weddings of 4 friends, traveled up to one of Queensland's most prominent tourist beaches for a geography field trip and ate some great food- I even made my own date and chia muesli and cooked dinner a couple of times. We're currently on 'mid-semester break' if you can call it that when it's 10 weeks into a 13-week semester and I have 1 day of class so I get all of 1 day's break. Working the rest of the week per usual is less than relaxing but I'll get used to it. I've got coffee and good food to power me on!

Coffee from Genie's- a cafe I've never tried before! It was alright- nothing to write home about.

Cinnamon Buns and the City

I've been having a pretty cruise-y couple of weeks but Uni assessment tasks are looming and the weather is warming up, which makes me sad because I do love winter so. I've been trying to get my fit and healthy state going- eating breakfast quite loyally, and I've declared my love for ALDI before but I discovered their Just Organic Muesli Clusters with freeze-dried berries and it is SO GOOD (I like it with almond milk for the taste). I've also been trying to keep up with the Kayla Itsines' BBG- it's so tough that I do about 10 mins before feeling too lazy to press on but I'll keep trying. I hope I manage to endure this as a long-term fitness initiative and make it part of my lifestyle so it's not a passing fad, because it'll help me feel better and have more energy overall. That being said, the majority of this post is carby food, as usual...

The Doughnut Bar's setup in the city is so cute! The fairy lights and bar set up makes for such a nice escape from the office. I keep meaning to venture over here during my lunch break but the $6 doughnuts are all the way across Queen Street Mall; it's a long walk.

Brunette Brow Game

If you ask me, the 'brows on fleek' and 'brow game strong' era is waning, but good brows have always been a staple in the daily face- see Jeremy Renner's 'frame the face' moment. Whether you do it by pencil, powder, paste or pomade, brows have stood the test of time and I know from experience that brunettes on the darker end of the spectrum used to have trouble finding products to suit their brows and their colouring. Thankfully, this is no longer the case.
