KIN + Co


KIN + Co cafe – otherwise known as “the place where I had one of the best coffees ever!”
Today we tried their clean skin house blend – rich cacao and caramel notes paired with silken soy milk. Satisfaction level at an all new high : )

IMG_3423The latest addition to Macquarie Street – we were very excited when we saw renovations in progress earlier in the year, curious as to what would sprout from the spot opposite the famous “giraffe unit” (there is a random giraffe nestled in some one’s front yard)! KIN + Co has a coffee window facing the street for quick takeaways, a small alfresco dining area, as well as a cosy interior with shiny subway tiles and white bentwood chairs.

I see a swan, what do you see?

IMG_3428IMG_3422Love how the menu tucks into the cutlery stand!


Mushroom bagel – mmm…!


Their famous shakshuka with a side of spicy sausage – the sauce was deliciously tangy and not sour at all, plus the sausage was really crunchy – highly recommend ordering it as a side to any of the savoury dishes!


A close-up!

Morning After West End


Morning After – the latest edition to the West End food scene – bears an intriguingly dubious name. Designed to placate the rumbling tums of those recovering from a wild night out (it’s like the mother ship is calling out to me…)! Brought to us by restauranteur Yianni Passaris (of dell’Ugo), this bright and modern new space was realised by Alexander Lotersztain (!!!). The concept provides a refreshing, open environment with lots of natural light, and a welcoming ambience for groups to mingle. Morning After is the perfect encapsulation of our “chilled Aussie brunch”.


A great blend of natural and man-made materials to create sharp lines, with a communal dining bench and casual bar top areas looking out onto both street corners.
I love those lawn-like stools and the abundance of green and plants!

IMG_3403IMG_3404The food – a well curated affair! Sourcing local ingredients where possible, the menu is delicious and healthy, with the magical ability to rejuvenate any gluttonous drinker!

IMG_3390Slow cooked chicken, harissa, lentils, roasted carrots, cranberries, sunflower seeds & tahini yoghurt


Hand rolled ink linguine, prawns, cherry tomatoes, basil, chilli and bottarga
the texture of the linguine is just incredible, and I loved the kick from the chilli.


Salt & pepper squid, asian slaw & yuzu mayo


Yiro fans should stop by on Saturdays!

Lana Ivanova Weddings

October has just flown by – two of my bestfriends got married, and then we went to NYC for a few weeks (!!!), hence the hiatus in my blogging : )

Today I’d like to share with you some of my design work for an uber talented lady: Lana Ivanova Weddings

Wedding aficionados may know Lana’s work from Hello May and White Magazine, as well as the bridal boutique The Babushka Ballerina. I’ve been a long time fan of Lana ever since our last collaboration together . Her editorial style captures a spectrum of moods, from an elegant lightness, to bohemian rustics, as well as glamorous, bold imagery. This time I was tasked with creating new business cards and website!


The brief was to create a delicate sentiment, with an abundance of white space.

The clean, minimalistic site lets her striking imagery take central stage.

For the business cards, I went for an elegant tactility, with a diamond quilted pattern to inspire a sense of luxury and class – think Chanel and buttoned back upholstery!

A blind debossing for the pattern, and then registered debossing of the logo. Can’t wait to receive them in the mail!

I’m currently working on the packaging and promotional collateral, so stay tuned!
