Today, my only day off for 3 weeks…I wish time would go slower!
I decided not to sleep in today and use my free time wisely. Ed and I decided to take a casual stroll up to my favorite cafe – Luxbite and on the way, take some snaps of the area we live in to give an insight of our neighborhood.
Gosh I haven’t stepped foot into Luxbite for ages, been craving for their macaroons all week! They’ve also renovated the place, it looks modern and vibrant. Definitely a relaxing, quiet place to enjoy a coffee and dessert. I usually order an affogato when I’m there but decided to have an iced coffee this time and my usual macaroons (watermelon and sour strawberry..droollll). Ed is boring as heck and ALWAYS has a latte and lemon meringue tart.
If you guys ever have a chance to come down to Melbourne I would absolutely recommend The Olsen for accommodation because its close to everything (trams, trains, Chapel st, cafes, shopping) minus the clutter of staying in the heart of the city (only 5 minute train ride away).
Can’t wait until Uni placement is over, definitely need to hit the shops and enjoy some retail therapy!
Gosh it’s been such a long time since I last blogged, must be the laziest blogger ever!
I just wanted to update you guys on what I’ve been up to recently and upload the last of my photos from my amazing trip.
I’ve been back home for nearly two weeks now however I still feel like I’m in holiday mode. The US was a life changing experience, their shopping, their lifestyle, their food, their fashion…everything was worth seeing and experiencing first hand. I really feel refreshed and never more clear of what I want in life and what I have to aim for. Definitely 6 weeks well spent haha! I’m going to stop rambling on about how wonderful the US was and upload some photos I think, before I get too carried away haha.
Just wanted to quickly recap on my experience in Sydney since Ed and I spent a couple of nights there before we came home. We stayed in the heart of the city so everything was really convenient. The shopping there is definitely better than Melbourne, I’m even considering just flying over to Sydney every so often just to go shopping haha. I managed to find the chanel mirror duo facette limited edition in their Myer which I was super excited about because they were out of stock in the New York Chanel boutique =). I also found a little nice clothing boutique in Paddington called Zeitgeist. They had really bright and trendy clothing and when I went they had 50% off everything so it was a bargain too. They don’t have a website but here’s their address in case you live in Sydney or will be visiting, should definitely go take a squizzy: 48 Oxford Street
Paddington New South Wales. Of course a day of shopping would not be complete without stepping into Ed’s favourite store: Burberry. It turned out that the Burberry flagstaff store in Sydney was situated extremely close to our hotel, which really wasn’t good for our hip-pockets haha. The flagstaff store was definitely nicer and bigger than the Melbourne stores. Ed ended up getting a couple of shirts but I didn’t buy anything this time around, although I did spot a pretty handbag that was new in stock. I decided to hold off because I have my eye on another beauty *wink wink* haha.
We also did all the touristy things like go visit the opera house and take snaps of the Sydney harbour bridge. There was a Guylian café nearby as well, they have really nice ice cream, if your an ice cream addict like me definitely have to go try out their ice creams hehe. Another place definitely worth visiting is Sydney’s fish market, fresh seafood is the best! And finally, you wouldn’t be a true tourist if you didn’t visit every city’s Chinatown haha. Ed and I took a stroll down Chinatown, definitely better than Melbourne’s I must say but the same old same old. We did find a passionflower though, they also have the best ice cream and desserts (I’m sure you can tell by now I have a HUGE sweet tooth). They also have a store in Melbourne on Bourke street if any of you guys are from Melbourne too =).
