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!

Autumn Ambles

When the winter-y months roll around, I’m generally not too happy about it.

Exhibit A…

I do however adore these in-between months of cool mornings and beautiful sunshine worth basking in (without breaking a sweat).

I’ve been making sure I take a walk everyday on my lunch break this week, just to break up the office monotony and to get my blood pumping again. The brisk wind has certainly helped me get moving in an attempt to warm up!!

The warm and cozy coffee shops are calling me…

Ginger Elixir

There’s a not-so-pleasant Christmas tradition that seems to come ’round each festive season – and it’s illness.

On Boxing Day I woke up with a horrid scratchy throat and a limp and weary body. This is definitely a downer after my favourite day of the year 😦

Today I whipped up a ginger elixir to help soothe my scratchy throat, and rejuvenate my doughy bones. It also turned out to be delicious, which sure doesn’t hurt.

To brew up this tasty ginger drank, boil your kettle while slicing 6 thin slices of peeled fresh ginger.

Pop the ginger slices in a large teapot, and fill with the boiled water. Allow the ginger to steep for 5+ minutes.

Add two tablespoons of maple syrup to the teapot and stir well.

Pour into a cute teacup and enjoy!

Winter is for Witchery

It’s finally the season for knitwear, hurrah!

I welcomed winter with a few new pieces from Witchery, a soft wool two tone jumper dress, and an adorably snuggly black cape.

I absolutely adore this princess maxi skirt from TopShop!

Emerald green can easily be matched with any colour palette and on this occasion I toned it down with some grey marle for a day at the office.

I’m walking on sunshine…

I decided to cheer up my Monday with a super bright self style challenge featuring my ‘Just In Time’ top from Sass & Bide, and a couple of Black Milk staples.

This top is pretty outrageous (even by my standards!) but I thought the styling difficulty element would be a fun little test for me 🙂
