The Chocolate Closet Featuring Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn - Rundle Place, Adelaide

Regular readers of this blog may have noticed that I haven't posted for the last couple of weeks. That's because I've been on holiday visiting my family over in Perth, Western Australia. 

I had intended to keep blogging from my Android Tablet but then I decided to have a proper holiday away from almost everything and tell you about what I got up to when I came back.

So now I'm back and over the next few weeks I'll write about a few of the things my partner, Enigma and I saw and got up to whilst we were away.

Technically this first post happened before the holiday began but I haven't been into the central city part of Adelaide for so long it's almost like the first stop on my Perth holiday... and how can you not blog about a life size chocolate closet.

Chocolate Closet by artist Prudence Staite.
Enigma and I happened upon the Chocolate Closet whilst visiting Rundle Mall, or more accurately Rundle Place, in Adelaide. Created by world famous food artist Prudence Staite, it features two icons of movies, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Presumably some of the all chocolate outfits and accessories were based on items owned by each star. 

I don't know too much else about it other than what was written on the Rundle Place Event website...

RUNDLE PLACE – THE SWEETEST PLACE 
In an Australian first, Rundle Place is excited to showcase an Australian first for the kids to see these school holidays. 
A life size walk in closet filled with shoes, bags, hats and all things wonderful that shopping brings… and it’s all made from 350kg of chocolate. 
World famous food artist Prudence Staite was flown into Adelaide from London by Rundle Place to create the one off sculpture comprising 100kg of dark and milk chocolate and 150g of white chocolate. So step in and admire Prudence’s art, and let your imagination marvel and your mouth water. The sculpture will be on display in Rundle Place until Sunday 28 April 2013.

Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War (2018) *Spoiler Free*

Ten years in the making and Marvel finally releases part one of the Avengers versus Thanos, A.K.A. Avengers: Infinity War.

After seeing all 18 films in the MCU prior to this, and liking most of them, I was pretty confident this movie would not disappoint.

Other than a few minor issues - that are all my personal taste and in no way reflect on the quality of the film - it really delivers. Thanos is indeed the big, bad villain of the MCU that we've been antcipating.

Finding Time to Skate - Swap a Skateboard Session into Your Weekly Workout Routine

A common problem among skaters dealing with work/life commitments (typically older skaters with families, careers, or both) is finding the time to actually spend on a skateboard. In fact, life in general getting in the way of skateboarding, is what often leads so many to drop out of the sport, only to rediscover it later, once everything else starts to even out.

I'm certainly in that category. Never really giving skateboarding away altogether but only using a skateboard to get from A to B, when I didn't have a vehicle, for many years. In the last couple of years I've been trying to get back into the sport properly, i.e. building up my trick list and skating for fun and not just to get from A to B.

The problem is I have so many interests, projects, paid work, and more, that I would often leave skateboarding to the end of my day. Kind of as something to look forward to. Except I wouldn't be that motivated to really improve because my mind would be fried from everything …

Guest Post: MY SOOPER DOOPER NEW CONSERVATORY/ART STUDIO!

Today's guest post is by Artist, Writer, and Mental Health Advocate, Jo B Creative who writes for her blog, Creating My Oddessey.

You should see our (almost) brand new conservatory, half of which is my art studio. 'Lucky me!' I think to myself. Not every creative bod can boast that. It's HUGE! Like a giant greenhouse.

We first moved to our pleasant cul-de-sac house - great for raising kids - when our son, who's on the cusp of thirty-one, was four. One of the main reasons that we wanted it was that, apart from its location on the fringes of a historic market town in rural Hampshire, UK, it had a sizable conservatory looking onto the back garden. It was brown wood framed and had a corrugated transparent roof sloping down from downstairs ceiling height. On the face of it, it doesn't sound that glamourous, but we loved the idea of a conservatory. Luxury! I even liked the red brick walls which it was built against - the original exterior of the house - and the light …

Movie Review: Spider-Man - Into the Spider-verse (2018) *No Spoilers*

I didn't go see Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse in theatres because a) Sony, and b) Animated movie... and if there's a c) Sony + Spider-man.

Then I started hearing all this word of mouth that this movie is really good so I thought, 'yeah, still not going, I'll wait for the home release'.

Then it won all these awards including an Oscar for Best Animated Feature... so I guess this movie must be good...right?

I rarely see animated features in the cinema because I have little faith in them to deliver enough entertainment at an adult level. Especially movies like Into the Spider-verse which you know is skewing for a younger demographic (as all Spider-man films in general do due to the popularity of the character with kids).

Having bought this movie on DVD (which is why I'm reviewing it now) I don't regret not having seen it in theatres, even though it would have looked amazing on a big screen.

The animation style is what really makes this film stand out. If I…

12 Side Hustle Ideas You Won't Overthink and Can Start Right Now

Have you been thinking about starting a side hustle to earn a bit of extra money but haven't been able to make a start because of everything you don't know about running your side hustle yet, or because of other things you think you have to do first?

If this is you then chances are, what you're really doing is making excuses not to start. I can't start anything new until I cross a few more things off my to do list. Sound familiar?

I'm too busy to start my side hustle and don't have the time to work on it just now.
One reason you may be stalling is a perceived notion that your side hustle is actually too complicated, and is going to require a lot of research and education before you're even ready to make your first dollar.

Here are some side hustles you can start in the next hour or two for low or even no cost. You don't need to know the ins and outs of everything you just need to start, everything else is 'on the job' training. It doesn't m…

Creating a Mobile Independent Artist Business - Part 10: Opportunities to make money (Part A)

In my last post I looked at What to Create and Finding Your Market. This post is something of a natural follow on from finding your market as many of these money making opportunities include their own market places that you can research to see what kinds of themes and subjects sell best.

It's worth doing this research to find out if the art you're already creating is a good fit for that market place - which is ideal - or if you may have to consider expanding your interests to cover popular themes in order sell in a particular market.

Movie Review: Black Panther (2018) *Spoiler Free*

Marvel's Black Panther is a solid entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that reminded me a little bit of Iron Man (2008), Thor: The Dark World (2013), with maybe a bit of Ant Man (2015) thrown in too.
Some people are rating it as the best Marvel movie to date. I wouldn't put it on the top of my list but it's certainly ranking fairly high on a very tight scale of solid movies.
