Life advice from Bali Barret

source:weheartit, lrol

I came across these little quotes by Bali Barret via little reminders of love a few days ago and couldn't help but smile at how my style has changed over the last few years, I would have grimaced at what Bali points at as quintessentially chic, but now I found myself nodding and smiling as I nudged my Givenchy bag on the floor under the table to keep it from getting stepped on by other uni students. I'm sure that if you already have these as small habits, it's kind of smile inducing to know you're on the same page as Bali (although I'd probably be careful with the street crossing one).


For anyone who's interested in adding a great leather jacket to their arsenal, I'm very sad to part with this Marni laser-cut leather stunner(I'm saving for some extra time in Europe this year). It's unlined and kind of amazing for Sydney weather if you've found every other jacket too sweaty. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT HERE.



a few screenshots from my dear friend Chris Cheng's new in-house magazine for LAB. I love zines because unlike your ordinary mags they allow for a whole different creative freedom. The launch issue is a great read and a visually stimulating (HELLO ridiculously good looking male models and clean fluid lines!) insight into the world of male modelling and menswear. You can view the whole issue here.

Le Jardin Cafe, Main Beach.

3/13 Tedder Avenue, Main Beach QLD 4217, (07) 5564 0100

On a recent trip up the coast I was lucky enough to discover Le Jardin a few minutes away from where I usually holiday in QLD. There's a definite lack of simple Parisian style cafe's in QLD compared to Sydney, especially in a neighborhood full of touristy attractions and guide book cliched big breakfasts, I was over joyed in finding this little gem. The menu features all the classic breakfast items, sweet and savory crepes, salads, croissants with various fillings, sandwiches and a selection of drinks. The definite winners for me were the eggs benedict w/ salmon ($15), french toast w/ bacon and tomato ($11), Royal Crepe ($12), Daily Crepe Special($7 for one crepe and coffee).

the customer service was lovely, but varried from day to day (notice the difference in presentation of the crepe special and eggs benny). The wait time for food was about 40 minutes on saturday as compared to the 15 minute wait on a late thursday morning. Both were equally delicious, and to be honest I had nothing better to do on saturday then drink coffee in the sunshine. It was lovely to see the French family who own the cafe pop in out daily. Presentation was simple, which I really didn't mind for the price and their black coffee was perfectly roasted (I had some seriously bad luck with ordering coffee on my trip).
