Review: My Favourite Products ….

Big Mouth Funnel

As you probably already know, my blog is all about food and travel, and with that comes the use of many products and services, here are just a few that I am in love with at the moment.

Travel Booking – Momondo

People often ask me where to get the best flight deals as travel websites are a dime a dozen, but my favourite is the aggregator site www.momondo.com.au . Not only does it find the best deals from across the web and all over sights, it lets you select multiple destination trips, when you want to arrive by (or depart by), minimum and maximum flight times and many other cool features. It isn’t just about finding the cheapest price (although that is helpful), it finds whatever flights suit you and doesn’t bug you with accommodation and rental care deals in the process.

Big Mouth Funnels

No longer do funnels have to take up prime real estate in the utensil draw! These flatpack, slim pieces of plastic (two size variations) click together to create an easy to clean funnel that is dishwasher friendly and easy to you. You can see them in action in the photo above, no surprise they won the Sydney design awards. You can purchase yours here.

MenuLog

It is obvious I love to eat out and love to cook, but sometimes I love nothing more than a good ol’ fashion takeaway on the couch. The days of endless google searches to find a delicious dish to be delivered to your door are over! MenuLog can tell you what places deliver to you local area, and you order online from the plethora of menus on their database. You can either pay online or pay cash on delivery, tempting right? Order your next meal here: www.menulog.com.au

 

If you have any product that you think I would love, or you want me to try out – let me know!

Ventuno ….

Ventuno

Nestled into one of Walsh Bay’s iconic wharfs, Ventuno is a peaceful, alfresco Italian eatery removed from the concrete

jungle of the neighbouring CBD. With stunning views of the harbour, it is the perfect venue for a long, lazy lunch filled with authentic food, great wine and boutique beers.

Ventuno is only a hop, skip and trot away from the famous Circular Quay, a tourist trap known for the demise of piggy banks. But just around the corner from this tourist hot spot, you can find Ventuno which is a secret gem loved by locals and a rare place where you can enjoy a fantastic meal on the water’s front without the crazy price tag.

The atmosphere and service are relaxed thanks to the friendly staff and an abundance of outdoor dining where you can watch the world and boats go by. They can accommodate large groups, private functions, romantic dinners or a place for people to enjoy a drink or two while enjoying a platter of perfectly prepared food.

The menu epitomizes fine Italian eating with a huge range of anti-pasta boards to choose from which include crowd favourites like meat balls, aranchini, calamari, house-baked break, cured meats and Italian cheeses. For main course, pizza and pasta take centre stage. The pizzas are thin, crisp and topped with simple, quality ingredients. The pastas include classics with a twist like the carbonara tartufata made with handmade rolled fusilli pasta with pancetta, eggs and parmesan truffle paste.

The Bitter:
The Sweet: I am a sucker for carbonara, and this would have to be one of the best I tried (can probably attribute that to the truffle of course!)
The Damage: No more than $40 for a meal and a glass of wine.

Oink oink,

The Way Way Back ….

THE WAY, WAY BACK

THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny coming-of-age story of an awkward 14-year-old Duncan’s summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, Trent, and his daughter Steph. Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, the manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up and begins to finally find his place in the world—all during a summer he will never forget.

The Way Way Back can be seen in cinemas from August 1 – don’t miss this one, it is a belly laugh opportunity. To find our more, click here.

What’s On: July …..

Sometimes it is hard to be motivated to brave the outside world in winter, so there is no better way to spend a night than rugged up and at the movies. This month I will be definitely going to see The Way Way Back – looks like a great flick, you can watch the trailer here: The Way Way Back

Sydney Pizza Festival

What is better than pizza?… not much. But what is better is when all the best pizza makers around the city band together and create a festival. Sydney Pizza Festival will be running for the whole month. You can view the schedule here – and don’t forget to grab tickets to the closing event to be held on SALT MEATS CHEESE you can buy them here.

A little bit of Iceland

I recently booked my tickets to Iceland for the end of the year. Some of my favourite music comes from that crazy little island on the other side of the world so I am going to trek over there can attend the Iceland Airwaves festival. To prep, I will be seeing Of Monsters and Men at the Enmore later in the month and I cannot wait! You can also buy tickets here!

Yellow Bungalow …..

Yellow bungalow

Filled with perfectly upholstered vintage couches, side boards, coffee tables, colourful prints, lamps, fans and cushions, this place makes you want to max your credit card to refurbish your home.

I recently bought s great lamp from here, I was worried the price tag was going to be ridicule considering how beautiful the store is but it only cost me $40 and it goes perfectly with the scented candle I also bought from there.

The store acts as a semi show room as the owners are furniture restores as well as sellers, they also make a mean coffee too – a lucrative idea which I am sure has paid off because it is impossible to resist walking out without a purchase while waiting for your cappuccino.

The Bondi community has embraced the bungalow with open arms, giving us another reason to never leave our beloved bubble to brave the outside world… or the “Junk Yard” (Bondi Junction). They are so popular they recently out grew their space and have now relocated to a stunning, spacious shop front further down  Bondi Road.
