Sydney Streets

Over the weekend I was up in Sydney for an event I've been working on called Stadium Stomp, and because we're such an awesome team, we basically had the day before the event off to explore the sights. After our morning trip to Bondi, we headed back into the city to roam the streets and see what we could find. I went to Sydney last year and did every touristy thing imaginable so I wasn't too fussed with what we did. We ended up walking down to Circular Quay and then back to Hyde Park. Here are some of the snaps I took along the way...
(Melbourne is better than Sydney) Until next time Sydney.

Saturday Morning Bondi

I can only remember going to Bondi once in my life and I probably would've been about 3, so this was basically my first trip there. Memories before the age of 5 don't count. I dragged everyone out of bed at about 8:30am so we could go explore. Because what's the point of being somewhere different if you're not out and about.
It was a pretty average morning weather-wise but being from Melbourne, you can't let the weather stop you. We went for a stroll along the beach, taking in the view and admiring the cool street art. As we wandered along I had a bit of an internal freak out because I saw the actual Bondi Hipsters in Bondi. If you don't know who the Bondi Hipsters are, you need to Youtube it right now!
We had a bit of a look through the Bondi Farmers Market, which was hipster-central. There were some adorable dogs, good coffee, organic food and a petting zoo!
For lunch we had Miss Chu, which is apparently a chain store but I'd never heard of it before. It was pretty pricey and very tasty, but in Bondi you wouldn't expect anything less. Bondi is a little bit like the St Kilda of Sydney, although I still like St Kilda more it's still fun to explore somewhere new.

Rummaging Through The Fitzroy Market

I think it's safe to say that Melbourne loves markets. But they can't be just any old market, they have to have a bit of a hipster edge to them. The Fitzroy Market is no different. I s'pose being in Fitzroy you wouldn't expect anything less. If you're unfamiliar with the area, Fitzroy is kind of like the Camden of Melbourne, minus the canal. I always find that the markets on the Fitzroy side of Melbourne are a bit more affordable than the one's on the other side of the river.
There were some amazing vintage pieces, plenty of designer labels like Ted Baker, Alice McCall and Moschino, and cheap second hand clothing. A lot of the stalls were stocked with beefy woolen jumpers perfect for Melbourne's current chilly temperatures, and lots and lots of interesting shoes.
These floral arrangements for $10 were absolutely beautiful from Love Alice & Co. I mean $10! How can you go wrong?!
 Kitty tie! ⇞
Alice McCall dress for $100 ⇞
And last but definitely not least, the food! I bought 5 meringues for $5, including a gin and tonic flavoured one! A red velvet cupcake and a scrumptious Wagyu beef and mozzarella cheese Piadina for $10. I'm definitely going to be heading back to The Fitzroy Market as soon as possible!

Third Wing South Yarra

South Yarra has got to be in my top 3 favourite Melbourne suburbs. I would give anything to live in one of the old town houses. It's also filled with shopping gems like this little store around the corner from the famous Chapel Street shopping district. Third Wing houses a gorgeous array of multicultural homewares, jewellery and accessories from local and international designers. When you step into this treasure trove, you're immersed in everything from New York street art, Moroccan homewares and hand carved African pieces, amongst gorgeous bohemian jewellery and quirky gifts.
I was so tempted to buy one of these plastic hamburgers, but decided to go for a woven coin bracelet. I figured I probably use it more often haha. Third Wing is definitely a unique place to buy presents. You'll know no one else will buy the same thing!
One day my house will look like this store!
