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 

  1. 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.

  1. 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!

  1. 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)!

  1. 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!


Chez Dre – South Melbourne


Top Paddock – Richmond

Hammer & Tong 412 – Fitzroy

  1. 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!

Shopping: High Street Road in Armadale! I’m also loving the Emporium at the moment – it has many of my favourite brands including Scanalan & Theodore, Dion Lee and Manning Cartell!

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!!

  1. 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
