Just a few snippets from the weekend and some recent favourites. Is it just me, or are the weekends coming round faster and ending even quicker? Boy oh boy, I've certainly been feeling it. Having been struck down with the flu the weekend before last, my recent Saturday and Sunday turned out to be jam-packed full of activities and outings. Brisbane blogger babe Francesca from Opinionslave was in town, so a date out in the city was a must! Despite our previous blog-to-blog commentary and online correspondence, I already had known our first meet would be a hit. After making an obligatory visit to Zara, we both stumbled upon Darren from Boy Moments and natural beauty Halcy from Vivien's down in the "market place" setting of Westfield Sydney. If you haven't been down on the bottom floor, make sure you visit. There are heaps of cool quirky stalls selling leather goods, knitwear, jewellery and re-worked vintage. Think of it as a pop-up Glebe Markets meets Finders Keepers in the heart of the CBD! Gotta love that!

Instantly we combined forces and visited the lovely Shannon and stunning designer pieces at Désordre. Afterwards we treated ourselves to lamb shank gnocchi at The Winery and a chocolate overload at Guylian Chocolate Cafe in The Rocks. Too good!! Darren and I even snuck in a cheeky Amaretto Sour at The Grasshopper on our way home. Hidden in an alley way on George Street, this place is a secret haven decked with super comfy granny chairs and an old black and white TV box. Hipster charm and drinks served in scientific beakers

So happy we are coming closer to the end of the week. As you can see, I've been treating my tastebuds to quite a few yummy dishes, with Ramen being a winter favourite! I have a couple of collabs in the works, so be sure to keep an eye out and catch me in between posts here on Instagram

ps. I've been listening to this track "I'm Into You" by Chet Faker. His voice is so soothing yet sexy. Lyrics are just brilliant. On repeat.
