Les Bubbles

I guiltily noticed recently that an astounding two months had passed since I’d made a new post! Rest assured I hadn’t forgotten about poor old Lexie Lou, but in that two months I’ve been busy as always.

After coming home from a two week holiday in Perth for my best friend’s wedding, I was soon back into the swing of things… working my two jobs, preparing to move house, and trying to catch up on my ironing :/

I decided to make some time for my love and I to have a night out on our own. The first restaurant that popped into my head was Les Bubbles, a Parisian steakhouse in Fortitude Valley that had been popping up all over my Facebook newsfeed.

We got all gussied up in our finest, and off we went!

Les Bubbles do things a little bit differently to other restaurants… they offer one main that they know they do well! Quality grass fed beef is chargrilled to medium rare perfection, and the most delicious fries (or as we say at Les Bubbles, frites) grace your plate. And did I mention the frites are bottomless?!

I requested gluten free bread with my entree of a warm leaf salad and was pleasantly surprised with a fresh, thickly cut slice that delighted my tastebuds (with a light slather of butter :P). To keep my meal FODMAP friendly I refrained from ordering any sauce to accompany my steak. I also paired my meal with a delicious Chandon Rose which went down a treat! It would have been rude not to order bubbles 😉

They also offer vegetarian and pescatarian options, so all will feel comfortable at this steakhouse. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming whilst keeping it’s funky edge, and was certainly somewhere I would recommend for families, couples, young and old alike!

Our food was delicious, and the service was spectacular. We will certainly be back for more!

For the love of pink

Pink is no longer reserved for Wednesdays! I’ve been rocking my fave new pink pieces this week to brighten up my busy days.

I nabbed this pink pencil skirt from Myer last night (with a handy 30% off all Paint It Red skirts) and couldn’t wait to wear it out 🙂

Paired with a knit top from Mix Apparel and my trusty Barbie shoes from Wittner I was ready for a matchy-matchy day of rosey hues.

I’ve been keeping myself cosy with my new H&M fluff – the only benefit of sitting in freezing air-conditioning all day is that I get to layer up and accessorise!

A Fairy’s Tale; part two

Happy Friday lovers!

Welcome to part two of my post featuring Ra Ra Superstar 🙂

Once I was kitted out in my next outfit, we explored a little further and found a quiet backstreet to take some snaps.

Another of my favourites of the day, this boxy crop is a perfect weekend piece you can mix and match with your wardrobe.

Here I am wearing a super bright vintage swimsuit, and a vintage denim skirt that caught my eye immediately with it’s adorable pocket bow details. I’m loving the washed out bleached colour – it’s perfect for summer denim.
