What a month! August has been so much fun so I wanted to share my list of favourite things from this past month.

1. Sweet Adventure’s Blog Hop – Cookie Monster

I loved being the Guest Host of the Sweet Adventure’s Blog Hop this month with the theme of Cookie Monster. When I posted my contribution to the Hop, these yummy Monte Carlos, I had all my fingers and toes crossed that I’d have at least a few people join me in sharing their favourite cookie recipes. I don’t know what I was worried for… we had 20+ cookie recipes shared!

A big thank you to everyone who joined in the fun. I hope I’ll be invited to host again in the coming months.

2. Alpha Restaurant, Sydney

A bunch of my favourite lady food bloggers got together to enjoy a feast at Alpha Restaurant. I really loved it! It’s like a chic meze bar/restaurant, gorgeous fitout, romantic lighting (great for bloggers!) and simple but bold flavours.

3. Gelato dates

Spring is in the air and I’ve been taking the warmer temperatures as a sign from the weather gods that I need to enjoy gelato.

A Gelato Messina date with Tara from Vegetaraian inspired the trend to try (L) Via Del Corso‘s Hazelnut and Snickers with my friend Ness, and then (R) Mr Sticky and I had Sticky Date and Salted Caramel Banana gelato from Cow & Moon in Enmore.

4. Amanda Seyfried’s dog

Meet Finn. Amanda Seyfried’s very patient and adorable dog. He has a very special talent for balancing objects on his head and is pretty much the best thing ever. BuzzFeed even called Finn a national treasure! Reason #99 why I love Finn is his ability to take a better selfie than any other celebrity A-lister. Check out his chat show appearance on David Letterman.

5. Sophie the Hulk

You wouldn’t like me when I’m hangry…

Mr Sticky REALLY wants one of these Iron Man masks, maybe Santa will bring him one for Christmas if he’s good.

I think the only super power I possess is eating 5 times the recommended serving size.

What’s your super power?
