Ice-Cream Chronicles

First things first, I have officially FINISHED EXAMS = aka the crazy-library/law-induced-madness is over. No more sleepless nights or cramming study situations – well until next semester – but we shall cross that 73643-page-taxation-law-textbook-bridge when we get there – until then – I’ve been celebrating all sorts of little victories with late night ice-cream runs and funky outfit combos.

Weekend Dining

JESSALIZZI 7_collage

From suburbia strolling to outfit-of-the-day shooting, this weekend was all kinds of good times. My babe-of-a-best friend/fellow-culinary-adventurist Katarina and I headed down to Mr. Miyagi in Chapel st, Windsor for a night of Japanese-fusion dining and white chocolate cold drip espresso Martini sipping [best in town just FYI]. With a line out the door and around the corner, literally (and I actually mean literally), 7 nights a week, this place really is da best for all things modern, delicious and cheeky, as #MrMSays.

Damn This Wine Be Fine

jessicaalizzi 5 Goooood Evening Everyone! After spending all weekend binge watching Orange Is The New Black studying very studiously for my final exam on Tuesday, I was in dire need of a little Sunday afternoon pick-me-up to get the creative juices flowing; the productivity flying… or something like that anywaysplus, my family and I were having homemade pumpkin, chorizo and tomato pizza for dinner (my dad is Italian) and what goes with pizza? Damn Fine Wine, that’s what! So without further ado, I decided to crack open a few bottles and conduct somewhat of an in-house (LITERALLY) wine tasting in my lounge room (…with the help of some very willing self-proclaimed wine connoisseurs of course – cue said family). AND WELL – The results are in, the majority has spoken; we all concur, this wine is finer than fine! In fact, we loved the wine so much, we cracked open a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Yep, it really was just one of those afternoons.

LOCATION: BOND MELBOURNE; COCKTAILS: ADDICTIVELY DELICIOUS

HAPPY ALMOST FRIDAY Everyone! With the weekend looming, and having spent the entire week studying/working/reading/lecture-ing/coffee-ing/not-sleeping and content creating, it is always good to unwind over the weekend. Everyone’s definition of unwinding is different; mine just so happens to be cocktails with babes. If you are much the same, then it is your lucky day! As I have taken the guesswork out of where to go for reasonably priced cocktails, good atmosphere and a killer location in Melbourne! BOND MELBOURNEnewly redone cocktail bar/restaurant/club/event-place is simply amazing! I tried and tested what were probably a few too many cocktails, but hey – someone had to do the hard work! My favourites were the Espresso Milk Bottle, oh and the Blood Orange Cap, oh and the rest? Might I just suggest you try one of each?!

Flower Power Juice Life

I’m not really what you would call a ‘ health and fitness type, in fact, to be entirely honest – the last time I did any sort of physical exercise (shopping excluded), I had more pimples than you could count, long, frizzy hair and was sporting (#puns) non other than a pair of Target pink & white volleys to go with my ever-so-chic P.E class attire… There was also that stint a couple of year’s back where I worked as a retail assistant at Nike. I was totally convinced that my sharp new get-up would get me training my butt off in no time, but for some reason the old exercising-life has just never really been for me. All the sweating, the early mornings, the ridiculously overpriced gym-fees – I just cannot get around it!
