Hosting Meet the Maker event!

I had a fabulous time and the pleasure of interviewing Alister Haigh for the Haigh’s Chocolates Meet the Maker event! The event was to celebrate the recent opening of their new store in Toorak Village & 56 years of being on Toorak Rd. 💖🍫 Let’s take a look at some of the action from the night…

Delicious hot spot!

Hope you’re hungry! I dropped by newly opened The Collective Dumpling in Toorak Village. This new hot spot serves a delicious mix of northern and eastern Chinese food. Home made dumplings are their speciality. Let’s take a look at some of my delicious snaps – the honey chicken was my absolute fave!
