One month left for high tea at the National Gallery of Australia

The stars aligned for a day last week. Early in January, I was invited by the National Gallery of Australia to partake in high tea at their temporary Wedgwood Tea Room, which is being held in conjunction with the current Tom Roberts Exhibition. I was interested, as I’d been wanting to get to the NGA for a while – but we were away and couldn’t go. A few weeks later I was delighted to find the invitation had been extended.

‘Taking over’ the I Quit Sugar Instagram (with outtakes!)

This year, it was held in my home-town, Canberra, and presented a perfect opportunity to meet over 70 local and interstate bloggers who share the same interest – food – but who each bring to it their own unique perspective.
