Stuff I like and use – Boody underwear

The unhusband recently bought me a gift from the local health food store… a bamboo fibre g-string from Aussie company Boody.

I do like a good comfy g-banger, and these are set to supersede my previous favourites – the also excellent but much pricier Lululemon microfibre g-strings.

I like that my Boody scanties are locally made from a sustainable material, and they’re also quick-drying and low-odour. Added to the fact they take up minimal room in my travel bag and they are definitely my travel underwear of choice.

Boody have a range of products including camis, tank tops, leggings and soft-cup bras. I can certainly see myself investing in a bra and a pair of leggings for further afield travels (nothing like a wire-free bra for a long-haul flight, and leggings often come in handy for wearing with a dress or layering under jeans in colder climates). Boody products can be purchased from their website –

Melbourne dreaming…

The next trip that the unhusband and I will embark on is a short jaunt to Melbourne. We lived there for a while, for two and a half years, and it remains one of our favourite places to spend time.

The unhusband is being sent down there to attend a trade show for work, and this makes it an inexpensive exercise for me to tag along. He gets an accommodation allowance, but we get to choose our own hotel.

I booked my flights through Virgin Australia, because I’m a member of their frequent flyer program. I joined up with them after a glorious flight between LA and Sydney last year. Not that I’m sure cattle class can ever be referred to as ‘glorious’ but really our flight over to the USA with Delta was such a hideous exercise in comparison that I’ve vowed to fly Virgin forevermore when I have a choice. For $119 each way (unfortunately I missed a fare sale due to waiting for leave approval to come through) it’s no hardship to fly with my preferred airline. My fare doesn’t include checked bags but I travel light anyway so carry-on is easy enough for me.

We’ve booked into the Pegasus Apart’hotel for four nights. I book through because it is an affiliate of Virgin and I earn points for booking through their links. At about $15o per night, for a queen studio with kitchenette, it’s a good get. It’s also right next to Queen Victoria Markets, which means… Market Lane Coffee for breakfast YAY!

I’ll be posting updates of our long weekend, with places visited, photos and reviews and recommendations later.
