It’s my week off from uni and despite the pile of work eyeing me from my desk I’ve decided to have a bit of treat week… otherwise, I won’t make it through the upcoming exams without wanting to run into a wall.
A major highlight of the week was getting gelato and drinks at Coogee Pavilion. The large, beachy dining venue has a rooftop bar with beautiful ocean views, good food and cocktails.
After trying a cocktail (or three – the Pavilion Piña Colada was fantastic) we bounced down and grabbed gelato in waffle cones. As usual I went straight for the chocolate – going for a creamy chocolate gelato with gooey brownie chunks inside.
I also decided to get another ear piercing. It’s a bit out there for me as I’ve never been keen on tattoos (I love them on others just not myself), and I only have my single lobe piercings done. Needles are also one of my worst fears…pathetic I know.
I mentioned I wanted to get it to my best friend and of course she convinced me to make a day out of it.
First, we decided to grab acai bowls from My Fruitologist, which I can confidently say has the best acai bowls in Sydney (a big call I know, but I’ve had one here four times in the past fortnight and I can’t get enough).
Then, we strolled to Bella Fleur Fine Chocolates and grabbed nine truffles to delight in together.
My favourites had to be:
- Rose – milk chocolate ganache with rosewater
- Strawberry and Cream – dark chocolate filled with whipped cream and strawberry
- Honeycomb Ravioli – smooth milk chocoalte with hazelnut praline and crispy honeycomb chunks.
