Dinner and Drinks

Saturday night I caught up with a friend for dinner and drinks in Ponsonby. We headed to Ponsonby Central as neither of us had eaten there before, but I'd been meaning to go for months!
 
Ponsonby Central has about 8 different mini restaurants to choose from. By mini I mean the spaces are pretty small and you can't make bookings, its quite trendy and people pop in for some food then can go along somewhere else for drinks or dessert.

We wandered around and checked out all the menus, then with my LCHF diet in mind we decided to go for the Japanese place - Tokyo Club.

Little Sister Cafe

I had a day off last week and met up with mum for brunch. We decided to go to Little Sister as I'd heard so many good things but it is only open Monday - Friday, so I'm usually unable to get there.

Antoine's Parnell

A few weeks ago I was invited to be one of Zomato's approved bloggers (which was all very exciting!) Zomato is a Restaurant/Cafe review website and I had written a few little reviews on their site for some places I had also blogged about. So I met up with one of their team members for dessert and a chat and she gave me a couple of vouchers to visit Antoine's
 
I scoped out their menu and saw that it was all very extravagant, and invited a friend of mine to come along for dinner last Friday night.
 
We kicked the night off with drinks at NSP, I had never been here before and LOVED it. The place has a restaurant as well as a separate bar, so we ordered our drinks and sat down in the bar section under vines and fairy lights, with a view of the restaurant within.

Cheeky Low Carb Pancakes

So last week I started a Low Carb High Fat diet - or LCHF - after hearing rave reviews from people and doing a bit of online research. The beauty of this diet is you don't get hungry, and a lot of your cravings disappear as you are allowed to consume as much fats as you want. The tag line being FAT is your FRIEND!
 
There are loads of  free recipes online to help you stick to your diet, varying from dinners and breakfasts, to sweets and snacks. I decided to try these Low Carb Pancakes for dinner last night - because who doesn't love a breakfast for dinner???

Beautiful Bali

Lately Ive been getting so many updates in my facebook newsfeed from friends who are in Bali, and it is making me super, super jealous and wishing I were back there! It was about 2 years ago that I was in Bali on a family holiday and I thought I'd share some of the pictures so I can dream a little whilst sitting here in rainy Auckland........

We stayed in the most beautiful private villa called Villa Champuhan, it was stunning! Ive never stayed anywhere like it. The villa was completely secluded and included our own private infinity pools which were beautiful to swim in, and meant no having to wait for sun-loungers!
