Farina 00 Pasta & Wine, 128 King William Road, GOODWOOD.

Adelaide’s kiiiinda got it goin’ on when it comes to pizza. You want your classic Aussie pizza joint? You go to Hyde Park Pizza Bar. You want Italiano style? You go to Antica Pizzeria. You want a Detroit deep dish delight? You hit a Pearl’s Pizza. Aaaaand you want a fast food quickie? Then a dirty Domino’s will do the trick. We’ve got this guys.

Bai Long Store, 80 Hutt St, ADELAIDE.

The workplace water cooler chat recently has been 1) who’s going to win season 3 of Ru Paul’s Drag Race All Stars, 2) favourite lip shades for work and 3) how bloody amazing Bai Long Store is. The chat was enough to get me to pick up the blower and make a reservation. Going in, my hopes were higher than Dolly Parton’s rack and SPOILER ALERT: I wasn’t disappointed.

Things I Loved in January

I love me some January with the smell of ‘fresh start’ in the air.

In an ode to this stunner of a month, here’s a little glimpse of the things I’ve been loving in Jan.

Acacia, 3/269 Seaview Road, HENLEY BEACH.

I’m far from living that beach babe life but when the weather heats up, I think all of us are drawn to the water in varying degrees. So last week, I decided to enjoy my breaky beachside and headed on down to the brand-spanking café in the Henley hood. I’m talkin’ about Acacia.

Longview Vineyard, Tasting Room + Della Casa Sunday, 154 Pound Road, MACCLESFIELD.

Ugh, don’t you hate it when a stunning Adelaide Hills winery invites you to check out their new Tasting Room and Sunday lunch? I really couldn’t think of anything more retched than driving through the scenic Adelaide Hills and it’s vibrant green paddocks, speckled with livestock and native flora. Even worse, is when everyone is so damn friendly and welcoming, stuffing you with despicably divine food and booze. Well, I had to live that nightmare a few Sunday’s ago. Ya’ll feeling sorry for me, I know.
