Coming up in Canberra #5 + a giveaway!

15 Sep

Helloooooo, spring! My favourite season. I feel like I spend all winter waiting for spring to arrive, and while a) we haven’t hit the spring equinox quite yet and b) there have been some cold mornings, the glorious days so far have me convinced that we may – may – have even completely missed false spring (please, please).

These next few glorious months call for another Coming up in Canberra. You can read my previous recommendations for the year: #1, #2, #3 and #4.

#HumanBrochure – Hyatt Hotel High Tea*

The #HumanBrochure discovery events are over!

There has been a little absence of them from this blog.In fact, this blog has been a little quiet because I’ve been doing so much, there’s been little time to write!

Simply: many of the Discovery events I’ve covered on my Facebook page or on Twitter as it happened (are you a liker? Are you a follower?

It’s been an exhausting month, and I’m quite sad it’s over – but it’s leading to an equally exciting one: I’m literally brimming with ideas! And with that, there’s no better way to end the discovery events than how I started: with food!
