Cafes and Bakeries in Sydney

The year in Australia was one of food exploration (and consumption), and nowhere was this more true than Sydney. This post is the 4th in the “Eat Sydney” series and was preceded by burgers, gelato, and Asian cuisine. Six months, a modest budget, and ever shrinking pants certainly limited the number of cafes and bakeries […]

Heather the studio audience member

In the last year, quite a few interesting opportunities have come my way, and I’ve been able to try many new things. I’ve appeared on TV; modeled; belted out show tunes, pop, and R&B at karaoke; and experienced SCUBA diving for the first time. With my love of food and knack for appearing on Australian […]

Gelato in Sydney

This is the first post in the “Heather Eats Sydney” series and the 6th in the “my waist line is expanding while my bank account is decreasing” series. For months I’ve tweeted about the restaurants, cafes, and bakeries I’ve visited during my time in Sydney. Some I stumbled upon during a walk, others I read […]

Healthy Food Stores in Sydney

You may not guess it from reading my posts about macarons and other sweets, but I love eating healthfully. Fresh fruits and vegetables and lean sources of protein make me smile, and I try to live gluten and dairy free as I’m sensitive to both. As much as I love healthy eats (and sweets…), I […]

How to become a model without really trying

There have been a few things in my life I’ve been paid to do: babysit, make cold calls about auto insurance, be a cashier in a department store and a grocery store, work as a psychology research assistant and lab coordinator, and coach and counsel students as an academic and career advisor. I can now […]

Sydney: The Inner West is Best

While I adore so many places in Australia, it’s fair to say that Sydney is my favorite. It was my introduction to Oz four years ago, and it’s where I kicked off my journey last May. Places speak (or don’t…) to people for different reasons, and Sydney just happens to have me under her spell. […]

Quitting Work to Travel…Again

I recently quit my job to travel. Sound familiar? You’re probably thinking of the time I transformed from career counselor to career breaker. On a Friday afternoon in March 2010, I met with my supervisor to offer my resignation and share the plan to move to Australia for a year. Well welcome to “Heather quits […]

No Umbrella at the Footy!

My dad raised me to love sports. As soon as I could hold a plastic bat in my hand, he was pitching a plastic ball to me. When he thought I was old enough to appreciate going to a game, I went to my first college basketball and football games. I love watching sports (on […]

Banking and business with the WHV in Australia

Choosing to “move” to another country (thanks Work and Holiday Visa) means that there is definitely some work involved — it’s not all fun and games like my previous 3-week trips abroad! In typical Heather fashion, I researched options months in advance to learn what I’d have to do to set up a bank account, […]
