Teen Spirit

Despite having recently turned 22 (aka happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time- thanks TSwift), I am pretty much a teenager at heart. So I couldn't resist purchasing this 'teen spirit' 3/4 tee from Glassons, whose recent collection is pretty much all on my to-buy list.
The tee is perfect for a casual day of chilling and bike riding, and I just had to up the angst factor with my neon 'Sea Punk'  beanie by Dallos and Carlos, and my worn in motorcycle boots.

Study Break

The beach is sometimes the best place to clear your head- so on a study filled Sunday, I decided to take a break by spending an hour or so at Balmoral Beach. I had a quick ice chocolate at the Balmoral Boathouse, a beautiful cafe right on the beach which is the perfect sunny spot to relax. I then couldn't help but pick up some hot chips followed by a 'Grounds' coffee from the Balmoral Kiosk. Definitely the best kind of study break!

Melbourne Photo Diary Part 2

 Melbourne day two kicked off with an early morning swim, followed by brunch at That Place. We began planning our day over eggs benedict and the best smoothies ever, which was helped along by the lovely waitress who sat down, drew us some paper bag and gave us a locals guide to the best spots to visit over the next two days!

After following her advice we hopped on a tram to Chapel St for a shopping filled day. Many bags later we finally stopped to refuel with froyo at Tasti-D Lite- it was so good we couldn't resist going back for seconds of the brownie batter concoction!

A bit of shopping later and we lugged our many bags to the packed mexican restaurant/bar Fonda Windsor, which had a great atmosphere and delicious burritos and cocktails.
We then finally made it back to the hotel room, before heading back out to explore the Melbourne nightlife.

Sunday Morning, we decided on brunch at the little laneway bagel cafe Manchester Press, before another day of shopping at Brunswick St. A couple of coffees later we headed back to the city to enjoy cute cocktails at the rooftop bar Madame Brussells, then packed in a quick Chinese dinner at The Crown Metropole before catching our plane home.

Thanks for the wonderful weekend Melbourne- we will be back very soon!

Melbourne Photo Diary Part One

Shopping, cafes and city lights makes Melbourne the perfect destination for a girls weekend. Catching a flight in early Friday morning (as in before sunrise...) and arriving back in Sydney late Sunday night, we certainly made the most of our weekend!
We stayed at the beautiful Crown Metropole, which had a great central location, city views and the most amazing rooftop infinity pool.

The first morning kicked off with a perfect breakfast at Cummulus Inc, before an afternoon getting lost in the city streets, shopping our way through Flinders Lane and Bourke Street. My personal highlight was a visit to Green with Envy, where I picked up an Acne tee and Secret South asymmetrical skirt.

After heading back to our hotel room to admire our new purchases, we caught the tram to the beachside suburb of St Kilda. Tapas and wine was a perfect way to end the evening, before seeing the ever-talented Dean Geyer, who played a one-off gig at the Prince Bandroom.

A perfect first day in Melbourne!
 Look out for Part 2 of my photo diary coming soon
