Episode two of The Pop Culture Hour with Julia & Kimberley is up!
This month we focused on comfort food viewing. That is, the TV shows and movies we can watch infinitely because they’re so familiar and comforting. The types of shows that you can have on in the background and tune in and out as you do other stuff, or the stuff you put on when you’re stuck on the couch with the flu, comforted in the thought of knowing how happy it’s going to make you feel when you watch the last episode of Friends for the millionth time.
I don’t want to spoil the whole episode, but I will reveal that in discussing my favourite movies, I discovered that a lot of them involve a lot of the same people. Okay, a lot of them involve Tom Hanks. And I’m sure I’m not alone – his films are just so watchable and so enjoyable, like a chicken cup-a-soup and a cheese and bacon roll for lunch in Winter when you have a cold. It just feels so nice, you know?
We can’t wait to hear what your comfort food viewing is, so keep an eye out on Twitter and Instagram and join the conversation!

There was a lot of white and a lot of red at this year’s Emmy Awards. That basically sums it up, but Imma do some fashion hits and misses anyway, because there were a lot of both. But first: Apparently, this is Gwen Stefani. Yeah, I’ll give you a minute to squint at this image… Continue reading ->
I’ve been inspired by Natalie from The Mustard Jumper and Jessica from The Belle Lumiere to try and start a Thoughts of the Week post. So, after this busy week where I haven’t had time to blog, here is a quick brain dump! 1. I’m still so sad about Robin Williams. David Letterman’s tribute is… Continue reading ->
We’ve seen a few movies in rapid succession over the past couple of weeks, so here’s a quick run-down! Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
I heard a couple of songs recently on Triple J and they’ve stuck with me. So, of course it’s my duty to share them with you. Coincidentally, both songs are from winners of the Triple J Unearthed 2013 Falls Festival Competition, which I was unaware of. Anyway, here you go! Melbourne singer Meg Mac has… Continue reading ->
You guys, I’ve been doing something. Something I never thought I would do. I’ve been running. Not away from anything. Not towards anything. Just running. And…I think I like it.
So, this is what’s kept me away from blogging the last couple of weeks! Once I had my daughter, I knew I wanted to at least make a couple of items of clothing for her. I made her a floor quilt before she was born, but I wanted to be able to make some little… Continue reading ->
So, a while ago, maybe at the end of last year or earlier this year, I started listening to a few podcasts. Usually about things like TV and film, but mostly just general chit chat ones. I kept thinking “This is so cool, just a few people sitting around, talking about stuff they like and… Continue reading ->
Last weekend I took a little me-time and headed in to the city to finally, finally check out H&M Melbourne. My husband was very generous and gave me a $150 voucher for Mother’s Day this year and I haven’t had the time to head in to have a look sans-toddler until last weekend. Here’s what… Continue reading ->
Has anyone else heard of Arbonne? I hadn’t, until two weeks ago when I went to an Arbonne party at my friend’s house. It’s like Tupperware, Intimo, any of those brands that sells to people directly in their homes via parties. I went along because I wanted to support my friend and because who doesn’t… Continue reading ->
