Melissa Lu


Melissa Lu is a Sydney blogger that lives in her own world surrounded by sugar and pretty things, where the sight of fine china can make her heart flutter. Life is too short to settle for the mundane.

With a degree in Biology, life didn't take the turn she expected when she found her soul mate and dream first apartment. Realising all good things come at a cost, she aims to surround herself with beautiful things without breaking her bank balance.

Her blog, Mel's Food & Home, is filled with all her delicious recipes and the creative ways she aesthetically enhances everything in the small space she has at home.

Take a step into her blog and experience the world from her view - where you see a dirty old vase , she sees a chance to turn it into a one of a kind jewellery stand.
