Weekly photo challenge – vacation edition

Hi all,

Got this photo challenge from visiting Shinyprettythings blog I thought it was a fun challenge and decided to do it too because I love travelling 🙂

1. Somewhere you visited last vacation.

The last place I went was Perth in April. It was beautiful and I hadn’t been there for a while. There was beautiful weather and I loved the relax feel of the place and they have beautiful beaches.

2. Something you bought on your last vacation

In Perth I didn’t really buy much because it’s actually pretty much like Melbourne but they do have some food places that we don’t have 🙂

They have this place called Utopia with really good cheap bubble tea 🙂

3. Something you ate on your last vacation

My friend works in this place called Mrs Marples which is based in Europe – Germany? Not 100 percent sure but they have some amazing food. We had some nachos and then some of their awesome cakes!

4.  A ticket/bill/receipt from your last vacation

Okayy so I don’t have any of those so I remember that I did take some shells back from the beach though 🙂

5. Number 1 place to visit where you live that you think people should visit

I think you should come visit our Melbourne CBD as we have so many different shops and eateries in our laneways and alleys.

All these photos make me miss holidays so much!

Hope you are having a lovely week so far! Let me know some good places to visit in the future 🙂

GAP has a store in Melbourne!


A lot of overseas branded shops are starting to open in Melbourne. Just recently Zara opened up this year on Bourke st which has been a big hit in helping retailers fight the GFC. Topshop opened up on Chapel street and today GAP opened in Melbourne Central. This is the first store in the whole of Australia and the reason behind them opening up in Melbourne is because Melbourne is known to be the fashion capital of Australia!

So I’m very happy to have a store there. I visited it today. The only problem is that they don’t have the variety that the US stores have and the prices are not as good as US. Hopefully they will bring out better styles and have sale items 🙂 

On another note, I went to Temp and tried on some clothes. I tried this lace vest but didn’t really like it. I tried this polka dot dress which I actually loved but it was a little too short. If you bent over.. its all over!
The weather has been getting really hot – 32 degrees – the problem with Melb weather is the everchanging temperature so apparently it is gonna rain and pour tonight! Just in time for the weekend -_-!

Happy weekend everyone!

Become a tourist in your own city!

Have you taken for granted your own city that you live in? Have you ever become a tourist in your own city? Well that’s what I did today. Today was Grand final parade for football – Cats vs Magpies. Tonnes of people hit Melbourne city! I was one speck in that crowd. I managed to take some nice photos as well 🙂 So enjoy! and Happy Friday!


My beautiful city – Melbourne
