Sheetal is the beautiful face behind The 3000 Chapter which she describes as “…the personal diary of a twenty-something Melbournian who loves to eat, dress up, and frolic in her favourite city!” Introducing the delightful Sheetal Mudumba x
- Please tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a 20-something Melbournian who loves fashion, food and generally speaking, frolicking around Melbourne! In my day job, I work in finance. In the evenings, I escape to a more fun and creative world through my fashion and lifestyle blog, The 3000 Chapter.
- Please tell us a bit about The 3000 Chapter.
The 3000 Chapter started as a personal hobby. Though I love what I do day-to-day with numbers, I realised that I had no hobbies at all and this was something I wanted to change…and so The 3000 Chapter was born! My blog is mostly about fashion, food and interiors and basically anything I’m loving at any given point in time! Since I started my blog, I have absolutely loved creating content for The 3000 Chapter and have also had so much fun making many new friends along the way!
- You feature some truly AHMAZING outfits on your channels, what is your go to brunch outfit?
Haha this is a tough question!! I think it’s safe to say that I am probably always the overdressed one in the group at brunch! I like to opt for something super comfy but that still pops – usually either a colourful or print dress. During the week, I wear a lot of black so I love to mix it up on the weekends (which is when I usually brunch)!
- In addition to the cool clothes, you also feature some great looking food. Where are your top 3 places to go for #breakfastinmelbourne?
So hard just to choose a few but my absolute favourites at the moment would have to be Chez Dre, Top Paddock and Hammer & Tong 412. And although I’ve only been asked for three, I’d love to sneak in a close fourth – The European. I know brunch has become a very social thing nowadays (which I love!) but I have recently found equal pleasure in walking down to The European on a rainy morning and eating my smashed avocado on my own while reading the newspaper. Despite the buzz around me, it somehow feels very peaceful!
- If someone had never been to Melbourne before and was in town for the weekend, where would you suggest they visit?
Non-brunch food: CBD and specifically Flinders Lane – so many great spots here! My favourites include Cumulus, Chin Chin and Eau de Vie for a cocktail (or two!). One of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne (big call I know!) is Bar Lourinha on Little Collins Street!
Culture: Spend a few hours walking around the city and in and out of all the alleyways – there is so much great street art to discover, amazing coffee to be tasted and boutique stores to shop at!
Fun: Fitzroy – such a fun evening vibe and so many good bars!!
- Anything else you’d like to add?
Of all meals, breakfast would hands down be my favourite meal and I absolutely love the Breakfast In project. Thanks so much for featuring me, such an honour! x
