Food Review: Hush Specialty Coffee @ High St, Fremantle

Barely 24 hours from the time I got back to Perth, I started to have massive cravings for coffee (as always) and lucky me lives a 10 minutes bus ride away from my favorite place in Perth – Fremantle. I made my way to there and got my coffee fix from the Markets which I have missed oh so much, I then decided to take a stroll down the Cappuccino Strip in Freo to see what I have been missing out from the last 3 months that I have been away. I made it all the way down to High street which usually is somewhat less crowded than Cappuccino Strip or even Market street in Freo. While I was aimlessly walking around with no sense of directions or whatsoever, I stumbled upon this really cozy looking cafe called “Hush” and I just knew that I had to drag Jannah here to try this place out with me, which then begins our little coffee adventure the very next day. As usual, standard Jannah and Preetha timing for …

17 Songs Every 90s Kid Should Know

Raise your hands, if you were born in the 90’s and grew up listening to songs from the millenniums! As a 90’s kid, I take pride in the quality of music that was popular during our generation. We had such talented artist who made amazing music. Let me take you down the memory lane with 17 songs you almost forgot. No worries, you can thank me later. 1. Backstreet Boys – As Long as You Love Me Before Justin Bieber and One direction even made it to this planet, we had Backstreet Boys! Backstreet Boys were one of the first few boy bands that made it big during the 2000’s. 2. N’sync – Bye Bye Bye Just like the Backstreet Boys, N’Sync was a big craze during this period of time. N’Sync and Backstreet Boys were always going head to head when it came to their fan base and music. Honestly speaking, I am a total N’sync girl.. I mean come on, how can you resist that cute baby face of Justin Timberlake and that sexy demeanor of …

October Favourites 2014

First of all, I can’t believe how quickly October ended. October has been such a roller coaster ride for me. It has been difficult trying to juggle assignments, work, life, and also staying healthy all at once (life of an Uni student). BUT with the help of a few things that I consider my ‘happy pills’, I have managed to retain my sanity. Secondly, WELCOME NOVEMBER! In this monthly favourite, I have chosen (in no particular order) 5 of my top favourite obsessions in the month of October.  1) Savvy Ultra Matte Lip Colour  I went into Priceline a while ago to casually look around and kill time while I was on my work break. I told myself that I won’t buy anything but, I came across this lip product which was on sale and immediately, had the strongest urge to try it. I usually gravitate towards brighter colours when it comes to lip products but, somehow this nude-brown lip product caught my attention. To be honest, I have dry lips and since this product …

“One of the greatest contributing factors to overall happiness is how much gratitude you show”

I recently stumbled across an incredible Youtube channel called ‘SoulPancake‘ that makes really interesting videos focusing on issues that people go through in life and a little guide on how to get through it. The interesting part is how these videos are conceptualised and brought to attention. Everybody goes through ups and downs in life. But how we fend for ourselves through these dark times determines the true strength that we possess. The video that caught my attention the most from this channel was “The Science of Happiness – An experiment in Gratitude“. “Psychologists have scientifically proven that one of the greatest contributing factors to overall happiness in your life is how much gratitude you show.” Julian Huguet (always trust the man in the lab coat) At first, I wasn’t too keen on watching the whole video. I had the attention span of a goldfish and also I wasn’t feeling the best. But I’m glad I pushed myself to finish this video. The experiment starts off with few volunteers filling up a questionnaire to test their …

I’m baked.. Are you?

Recently, baked organised a tea party, and I was fortunate enough to be invited! When I got there, I was really impressed with the decorations. It was so simple and yet so pretty and the desserts looked really, really good. If you’re anything like me, by this point of the post, you’re seating in your seat salivating and wishing that you could taste these yummy looking desserts. While I can’t offer you some, here’s what I thought of baked‘s dessert table. If you LOVEE chocolate, but don’t like the sickening sensation of consuming too much, this would be perfect for you. The Hazelnut Tartlet is simple in its looks but tastes oh-so-heavenly. The hazelnut filling is smooth and fluid without being overwhelmingly sweet and is complimented by the cocoa flavoured tart. I couldn’t resist having more than one! The Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting is by far my FAVOURITE of the whole dessert table. The caramel frosting has a sugary and buttery consistency which is balanced out by the fruity apple cinnamon base. I …
