Marquay Restaurant in South Perth

On Wednesday, after a long session of Yoga (who knew one could sweat so much!) at a South Perth studio, we decided to go for a long, leisurely walk along the foreshore to relax a bit. As we walked in the cool breeze, we noticed that the Bellhouse Cafe was up and running again. We were intrigued by the refurbishment; lights were on, people were seated inside and it looked like the renovations were finally done! Then we noticed something new. What was formerly known as the Bellhouse Cafe was now Marquay.

I used to pop in to the Bellhouse cafe once in a while when I was feeling like a casual coffee and cake or sometimes I go there on a lazy Sunday morning for breakfast but the last few times I was there, they were closed. So suffice to say that on a Wednesday evening at 8:30pm, I was keen to sit down and have some dinner at this new restaurant.

We walked in feeling slightly self conscious in our gym gear but our discomfort quickly fled as we were greeted by a lovely lady who looked past our appearance and made us feel comfortable and ready to dine. As we waited for a table by the window we had a quick chat to the host. She said that it was only their second trading night and the Bellhouse had been closed for about 4 months now. They had made some great changes to the place and I was really liking their decor.

We were soon seated and presented with the menus. I was pretty excited. So far, so good. Service was great with all three waitstaff that we encountered, they had an extensive drinks menu (alcoholic alert) and their menu looked really good. First things first, we ordered a drink each and then took our time deciding what to order.

In the end, we decided to share an entree of scallops which were fantastic! Cooked well and not rubbery at all with no weird aftertaste that we sometimes experience with scallops.

Bad Apples, Applecross - Dog friendly

It's a Monday night and most of the decent places in Perth are closed. I want to eat something good but not drive out too far in search of a half decent restaurant. Why is it that so many restaurants close on Mondays? It's a little annoying.

Bad Apples Bar in Applecross is one of those places that you can go to on a weekday night and you're wanting something other than home cooked food. They're a really laid-back, slick kinda place that is dog friendly. When it's a warm night, try to get yourself onto one of the two daybeds (made by the very talented co-owner) and relax in the alfresco area with a cocktail or glass of wine. Their outdoor seating area is perfect for the Freo Doctor to blow in and cool you down. Ah, that is the life.

EOS New Adult Grey Lense Review - Sponsored

Diameter : 14.5 mm
Base Curve : 8.60mm
Water Content : 38~42%
Life Span : 1 Year

These lenses are so comfortable! I wore them many times to test out the comfort. Towards the end of the long day, though, they can become a bit dry.

I've been searching high and low for grey contact lenses that actually look light grey against the dark Asian pupil. I am so happy I have finally found it! I can't wait to try these lenses in the brown colour! 

Enlargement:     ♡ 
At 14.5mm, it's one of the smaller, natural sized lenses on the market and it's perfect for a sexy, sultry look.

I absolutely recommend these contact lenses to anyone looking for light grey contact lenses! They really match a sexy, mature look. Thanks again to Lensvillage for sponsoring these lenses for review.
