Why are you sooooooooo obsessed with Starbucks?
I’m addicted and I live about 15 minutes away from one. If you need any suggestions, you should check out my favourite combinations.
Why did you stop blogging daily?
The simple answer is that I couldn’t stand posting another meal that looks just like the one from two days ago. The more complex answer is that I don’t have the time to style and photograph two or more meals daily while studying and living life. The entire process is incredibly time-consuming and it was adding stress to my day.

Why did you move from Melbourne to Sydney?
I was actually born in Sydney and live here until I was 8 years old. My father moved a lot for work and one of the jobs he took after Sydney was in Melbourne. I stayed in Melbourne through high school and for nearly four years afterwards because I had a fantastic apartment there. I decided to come back to Sydney when I was 21 and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
What does your apartment look like? Can I see your place?
Yes, you can. I did a photo shoot.
