3. Delightful Dining at Quality Wines:

Quality Wines is located just off Exmouth Market and a five minute walk from our studio. There are many restaurants I love on Exmouth Market, but Quality Wines has to be my favourite. Located inside their deli style shop, and surrounded by shelves of a diverse selection of wines, this restaurant boasts an inviting candlelit ambiance, knowledgeable staff, and a short but extremely well considered menu of Mediterranean-inspired dishes. The seasonal à la carte blackboard menu changes monthly.

7. Favourite Style hack:

Most days I need to be up and head out to the office with not much time, so I'm usually wearing simple white tee with jeans, or suit trousers.
