A Bloggers Lunch: The Commons Local Eating House (32 Burton Street, Darlinghurst) featuring the Avocado and Bacon Stack, The Commons Corn Beef Hash, Scrambled Eggs and The Healthy Stack
Sometimes I have to sacrifice precious sleep just to live a normal life and do normal things. I haven't had brunch in months since I've started permanently being on night shift mode - sleeping at 7am and waking up at 2-3pm. I've been living like an owl eating my breakfast at 3pm and searching for dinner at 4am.
When my fellow blogger friends - namely Annora from Nora Finds, Margaret from La Petite Mademoiselle and Theresa from The Ladida suggested brunch I couldn't resist the temptation of having coffee in the morning and having breakfast food at real breakfast time.
Tucked behind bustling Oxford street with a delicate white fence and plants growing over it is the serene The Commons. It feels like entering a little Secret Garden. Inside are beautiful wood floors and tables with a rustic feel and a peaceful, laid back atmosphere.
I ordered myself a Bacon and Avocado stack. It was crispy bacon layed on top of a bed of baby spinach leaves and toasted bread, then they balanced half a fresh avocado and drizzled it with reduced balsamic vinegar. I devoured this happily with a fresh cup of aromatic coffee while discussing with my fellow bloggers who our latest celebrity crushes are.
We stayed for four hours catching up and topping up on our teas and coffees. Its inspiring to see where our blogging journeys have taken us over the years and where we want to be led to in the future. For me, I discussed the new people in my life and how they make me happy everyday. We also discussed old friendships, new loves and old loves, blog layouts and new camera equipment.
We didn't realise the time, we were just so relaxed being at The Commons. What a wonderful afternoon. I'll definitely be back to experience more lazy afternoons like these even if I do have to sacrifice more of my precious sleep.
