Warmest greetings from Melbourne, Australia!

July 25, 2009

What could possibly be more exciting than leaving behind the manic scenes of chaos at the school gates (aka ‘morning school drop off’) sitting down to a nice cup of tea, vegemite and butter dripping on warm toasted sourdough and my daily shot of the very addictive and highly insightful Babyccino blog? Joining the Babyccino team, of course! My name is Sara and I’m so thrilled to be on board! I cannot wait to share the best my beautiful city has to offer in the world where fashion, food, style and motherhood coincide.

Now, what to know about me? I was born and raised in inner-Melbourne and prior to children I was a lawyer with a specialty in Intellectual Property Law. The only intellectual property quandary I resolve these days is who gets to suck on the mango stone. Law was a piece of cake compared to the trials and tribulations of motherhood but nothing could prepare me for the sheer joy and incredible love, and I have been a stay-at-home mum since my daughter Zoe was born almost 8 years ago. I share with the team at Babyccino a passion for art, style, interior design, fashion, good food, travel and shopping. Melbourne is a mecca for all these things but I admit, I also have plenty of expertise in trawling the shops of London, New York, Paris and beyond without leaving my couch!

Now, if only I could get on a plane and meet my co-bloggers in person….oh and do a spot of shopping while I’m over there….

ps. More on the ‘vegemite’ later.

HI Sara,
I love Australia (couldnever love vegemite, though), and was fortunate to live there three times in my life with my parents with their temporary work assignments. Our first trip, we were in Kew!
Anyway, now I’ve ended up in Germany and have also started a blog (baroquebabies) about our finds and life here.
Will look forward to reading your contributions!

Hi Laura, I live just 10 minutes from Kew! Vegemite is definitely an acquired taste (one that must be acquired from babyhood)…..it is so great to be joining the babyccino team and I’ll be sure to check out your blog!

Welcome Sara!
And yes, what actually IS vegemite?

Thanks for the welcome Courtney!
Re: the ‘vegemite’ – it is a smooth, black spread (an accidental by-product of the beer-making process made from leftover brewers yeast) which we spread on our bread – tastes like a magical combination of butter and salt! Not very popular with our visitors, in fact most are horrified by it. Very rich in vitamin B though.
Perhaps I should send you a jar!?

So excited to have you ‘with us’!!!
Vegemite sounds very much like Marmite. Not my cup of tea! 🙂

and yes… vegemite sounds a lot like marmite, after all it was a british colony!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

Yes…. it is a lot like Marmite but even saltier!

(If that’s possible!)
