One of the nicest weeks I have had in a long time.

I knew I liked Melbourne, but I had forgotten just how much. The people, the shops, the fashion, the individuality, it's just damn cool & I am already thinking our next home exchange should be there !
I took tons of photos, here is just a small sample of what we got up to, in no particular order.

coffee.....lots of delicious coffee



shopping.....


Belle & Boo spotting......



street wandering...

I had a great day at the Sisters Market with Allison, I met so many lovely people, a special "hello" to you all that read this. Thank you to Elie for organising my interview with Eliza from the Hearld Sun, to Justine for her newly printed Mixtape mag and of course to Natasha who bought along a handmade Christmas gift for Allison and I (it is still wrapped Natasha!) I bought some real treats at the market, but can't show any of them off just yet, as most are Christmas presents & I don't want to spoil any surprises.


After 4 days of city life Russ & I went too Daylesford to visit Allison and Paul from Lark it was AMAZING.


If I could find the equivalent place in the UK I would move there in a shot. So, so pretty, quaint, peaceful & dignified, just as a spar town should be, but with the hippest cafes, shops and resturants you can imagin & of course the FABULOUS Lark shop it was pretty surreal seeing it in real life !



We were treated to stunning accommodation, which I would totally recommend





a spa package in equally pretty Hepburn Springs



& a delicious meal with super company, followed by herbal tea at the Lark household.


THANK YOU Allison & Paul it was a really wonderful break, Russ & I want your life !

On another note how fab is this, Belle & Boo on the front cover of the Observer Food Mag, thanks for the pics Kelly.
