The blackest of all sheep

posted by Emmy O'Neill December 14, 2017 0 comments

Hiding in the industrial streets of Woolloongabba is my favourite of all the coffee shops! I am almost tempted to not give away the address for fear that all the hipsters of Brisbane will travel far and wide just to get a taste of one of Brisbane’s most perfectly extracted espresso. Black Sheep is more than a coffee shop. It is an iconic, right of passage for all coffee lovers…or tea lovers, or hot chocoalate lovers or chai lovers…[the staff at Black Sheep are a very inclusive bunch].  Continue Reading

Dreaming of starting the New Year with some kick ass resolutions… those oh-so-common goals… loose a few kilos, move daily and eat healthy. #SaysEverybodyAtTheEndOfEveryYear

Well healthy eating has never been so easy… and whilst I am partial to eating out (just look at#BTInsiderTip) I also love to get creative in the kitchen and cook with fresh produce. Over the past six months I have been travelling to Ipswich on the weekend to collect farm fresh, ORGANIC, picked-a-few-days-before veggies from Hillfields Farm. Continue Reading

Up Up Up And Away…

A morning in the departure lounge at Brisbane Airport, sipping espresso and awaiting a holiday *Cue destination holiday daydream*

Last week I packed my bags and headed to Brisbane Airport for an adventure – only we didn’t leave the ground…

Whilst I would love to say I was jet setting off to come exotic location (oh hello Bali please let me Eat, Pray, Love you); I was actually there to taste test some of Brisbane’s finest beans and brews – something I was sceptical even existed at an airport. After all, I thought airports were home to instant coffee and not much else. Boy-oh-boy I was wrong.

At the movies: SHOT CALLER

posted by Emmy O'Neill November 23, 2017 0 comments

I’m not normally someone who sees a movie without watching the trailer first. I like to know what I am getting myself into… and for the record I normally pick ROM-COMS “Oh hello It’s Complicated”. But today I was feeling a little spontaneous and thought to myself, live on the edge and see a movie you know nothing about.
