Review: Touchwood Cafe

I had read a lot about Touchwood since it opened a little while back, and despite it being down the road from work I still hadn’t made the journey to check it out. This was finally rectified one chilly Melbourne Thursday when I was able to get down there with a friend who also works locally and grab some lunch.


Review: Shop Ramen

Shop Ramen first made an appearance on Smith Street as a 10 day pop-up ramen store in Storm in a Teacup back in February, but now has a more permanent home near the corner of Johnston Street.

Spotlight On: Who Gives A Crap

The topic of today’s post is a little different to what I usually write about, but today I want to talk about toilet paper. Specifically, Who Gives A Crap’s toilet paper.

Even better than that, 50% of the profits of their sales goes to Water Aid to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world – how impressive is that! Toilet paper with a heart!
