Creatives, you know by now that I'm in dire need of an intervention to deal with my increasing candle addiction. But if I may be afforded one last binge, like the contestant have on The Biggest Loser before they start their diet, I wish it to be with a Pigeon & Weasle candle. Primarily, the scent 'Red Frog', which as the title suggests, smells like the lollies of the same name. This is one candle making story with a difference - and it involves utilising recycled beer bottles. Genius!
Confession time: I've lived in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for well over six years and prior to last weekend I had not been to The Norfolk. Even after its killer makeover in December 2010 (I know, cuff me and throw away the key). Plenty of people had told me how much I would love the beer garden there - and after sitting in it for a few hours recently, they weren't wrong. Its laid-back, mismatched retro vibe is right up my alley (as are the cocktails)!
