A European-Style, Beachside Melbourne Apartment!

St Kilda is home to numerous 1920s apartments with ornate features, and one of the best belongs to John Wares, owner of Melbourne gift and homeware shop Mr Wares in the Block Arcade, and his friend of 30 years, Peter Papadopoulos.

It emphasizes fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, legumes, seeds, herbs and spices, olive oil, fresh fish and other seafood, and occasionally poultry, eggs, cheese, and yogourt, as well as red wine.

In addition, the Mediterranean diet highlights the importance of regular exercise and enjoying meals with friends and family.
