Braddon stalking- BOX


I stand corrected, when I posted that Gelato Joe’s was the newest shop in Canberra, BOX actually opened that day! I had a lot of fun browsing through their unique collection of quirky accessories and lovely skin care. 

I couldn’t help myself and since I finished my Aesop hand cream I was on the look out for a new one. The scents aren’t that strong but it leaves a nice soft touch after rubbing in the cream.

Sweet orange and jasmine Therapy Range hand cream ($18.00)

Venue: BOX

Address: 27  Lonsdale St, Braddon ACT 2612

Braddon stalking- Rare Hair


I’ve never had a monogamous relationship with a hair dresser and I’m forever finding a new one. I noticed Steve’s (from Callahan bicycles) trendy haircut and he said that he got it cut from Rare Hair that morning, with great anticipation I’m hoping to get my hair cut from here as early as next week. Let’s hope I don’t look like a smiling clothed cherub boy afterwards! « It’s my greatest fear.


Turns out Rare hair’s officially opening will be on the 15th November, looking forward to a new Summer look.

Gelato Joe’s sweet treats


I thought this appeared from no where but it has been a while since I walked down Ali baba’s way in civic. Gelato Joe’s sweet treats only just opened yesterday and has many Italian desserts, gelato, pies and coffee.

Nice to know that they have put so much love in their product.

They also have a window full of Italian sweets.

Caramel panna cotta ($3.90) I don’t know if they only had one cup size but I didn’t think I would still be able to see the bottom of the cup before I started eating. Despite the size the flavour was really nice, I did try their banana bread flavour but it wasn’t as good and slightly gritty.

Custard filled profiterole ($5.00) the cream tasted very alcoholic and strong but it was balanced out by the toffee top and choux pastry. I don’t think it is worth $5.00 and there was only a little bit of custard in the centre of the cream cloud.

They provide some limited seating.

There are a lot of gelato flavours so you should scoot on down and try the large range they have.
