Icebergs Dining Room has been under my radar for a long, long time. Over the years I heard people saying loads of great stuff about that restaurant. I don’t know what took us so long to check it out. Perhaps the daunting parking situation (it’s good ol’ Bondi we’re talking about!) or the thought of crossing the bridge was enough to put us off from going there. Actually, on second thought, Icebergs does have an air of exclusivity that I thought I didn’t know how to navigate. It’s so silly to allow such an impression to stop me from enjoying their services and the breathtaking view of Bondi beach. By the end of the day everybody’s out to have fun and being self-conscious really doesn’t serve any purpose. It’s a little like visiting a high-end shop. The thought of stepping into the shop can be quite intimidating but if I would just allow my mind games to stop me from enjoying the retail experiences that I’m could have had, then I’m totally not doing myself any justice!
As my belly grew, I needed to expand my wardrobe and the wrap dress was one style that I hadn’t explored much. I discovered this maternity brand called Maive & Bo on The Iconic and after doing some research, I decided to take the (tiny) plunge. Being only 5ft 3, I tended to avoid maxi dresses because the length was never right but I realised that a good tailor is the key to solving most fitting agonies. Paying for extra tailoring may not be the most economical way to dress up but if it’s going to improve an existing piece and prolong the longevity of the item, it’s totally worth it in my humble opinion. I took a few inches off the length of the dress to show off the ankles and boy, I could not believe the difference that made.
Our night at the Dining Room didn’t disappoint. It’s such a great place to people watch, especially if you’re into fashion because everyone seemed to be wearing the right things or the latest ‘must haves’. The food and service were great and I got to have a long date with one beautiful man. What more could I have asked for?
Have you done anything nice for yourself lately? I would love to hear about it 🙂
