How To Balance A Busy Social Life With a 9 to 5 Work Life

So this past week has been one of the busiest social weeks for me in a long time. The only night I had nothing on was Monday, as for the rest of the week; read on….

On Tuesday evening I was invited to participate in an Influencers Style Challenge, hosted by The Myer Centre Adelaide, Realm Adelaide, and Little Lion PR. So after work, I walked over to the very fancy Realm Adelaide display apartment which played as the beautiful backdrop for the style challenge. This was such a fun challenge, my outlook on the event was to go in open minded, try new things and to step out of my comfort zone…you’ll see the looks I put together below (also check out the video down below). From here I then rushed of to the second event for the night, which was the launch of The Style Establishment, the new stylish kid on O’Connel Street. I had a browse of the beautiful pieces on offer, took some snaps and finished of the night chatting with some other lovely bloggers.

Wednesday evening was not about fashion, rather it was about food…sushi to be exact! I’m so excited to share that Sushi Planet have opened their second restaurant in Modbury, for those of us North-Easters, it’s the perfect location for a good sushi fix. Looking at all the different sushi on offer, it made me think that sushi are like people, each different in their own way, but at the end of the day they’re all one of the same kind. Highly recommend checking out Sushi Planet, they’ve got booths that I think make the dining experience that little bit more comfortable.

Then came Thursday night, Thursday night brought a mix of events. The first was the launch of Ettie Ink Studio. Ettie Ink is the brain child of 2016 House Rules finalist; Michelle Fogden. Check it out if you’re in the market for some amazing paintings and prints. After checking out the studio, I then made my way to the next event, which was the opening of the Lucky Dumpling Market. Located on the Torrens Riverbank, it’s the place to be for a chilled night out and some delicious food…I personally recommend checking out the offerings at the Sookii La La stall.

So how did I survive this week, well my biggest tip would be to have a PLAN. In this plan include rough times of when you’re planning on arriving and leaving each place, this gives you an idea of how long you have at each place and you can make sure you make the most of your time while you’re there. Also in this plan, think about where you can park for each event, if you have an idea in your mind about where you will be parking, it takes out a lot of that unecessary stressing. And finally, think about what you will be wearing and like me if you’re going to the event straight from work, include make-up, shoes and a bag in your outfit plan….trust me, with a good plan in place your stress levels will be practically non-exsistent.

Here are some snaps from the week that was…..

Sushi Planet: New Menu Launch

Do you remember an earlier post from the launch of Sushi Planet in January? Well due to their success since opening they have expanded the menu to include a range of exciting new options including sushi for vegans!

The new menu launch was done in true Sushi Planet style, not only was the sushi flowing, the stylish guests were also in an abundance, and it was no secret that everyone enjoyed the delicious sushi.

What excited me was the range of different options and how pretty they looked, it was definitely a feast for the senses and it’s so nice that anyone with different dietary requirements has a choice and aren’t just left with one disappointing option.

My favourite thing on the menu are the chicken skewers……OMG they are so yummy. I love it when fancy food is actually tasty and the skewers at Sushi Planet are so tasty. They are smothered in finger licking, sticky, flavoursome sauce, I will go back anyday for these!

Here are some photos I took on the night, enjoy eating with your eyes and hopefully you get a chance to check it out yourself!

Sushi Planet Official Opening

Sushi is a type of food that you either love or hate, but I think most people in this day and age love it. It’s usually easy to eat, tasty, fresh, and there are so many flavour combinations to choose from, so how can you not love it?!

Well Adelaide’s newest sushi restaurant; Sushi Planet, makes sushi even better by giving you the option of enjoying freshly made sushi in a beautiful restaurant or having it delivered to your door step if you can’t be bothered going out, how good is that!

Sushi Planet officially opened in style a couple of weeks ago and I was so excited to attend and have a taste of their delicious offerings. As you will see below, not only is the sushi fresh and tasty but it is also beautifully presented, I did alot of eating with my eyes that night! You will also see below one of their many pretty cocktails on offer…..sushi and cocktails…..some people would call that heaven! Along with the sushi, you can also choose to have delicious chicken skewers with a thick, sticky, yummy sauce (as seen below) these were actually my favourite, they were so flavoursome.

I had a great time catching up with friends over sushi at the opening party and I look forward to going back and tasting all the different options on the menu. Although if I feel lazy I might just have to order and have it delivered, just so I can have one of those cute little sushi cars turn up at my house, you should too!
