Melbourne via Instagram...

Well were finally home..its been only three days really but since ive been away from my laptop it feels like a lot longer!! i had the most amazing time in Melb with the boy he got to watch the soccer and i got to drink copious amounts of hot chocolate and shop till my shins were sore...perfect compromise i think...here is a few Instagram pics from the trip...













1 - KoKo Black hot chocolate
2 - The view from our hotel room..so amazing
3 - Aeroplane must haves..Frankie and an ipod
4 - Lunch in the hotel before the game..mmm
5 - Rainbow over the city
6 - Me city gazing...and looking super windblown
7 - The rain splattered streets
8 - New boots...as the shoes i brought were super inappropriate...my toes were almost frostbitten
9 - The old churches...all the stain glass windows and old carvings were so beautiful.
10 - Night lights
11 - Jerseys...me supporting Australia of course!!!
12 - Hotel slippers and bathrobes ohhhhh comfy bliss
13 - Smoke Flares..about 7 or so were let off...it was a tie game 0 to 0!!
14 - More KoKo Black...its a serious obsession now...even better than San Churros dare i say!!

A few things i learned on the trip is to always pack socks...thank god i could borrow the boys (that's right i have big feet) bring appropriate footwear, 50's attire is not warm enough for freezing almost snowing Melbourne weather..stick to jeans!!! don't forget your toothpaste..and don't watch Arj Barker on the way home in the aeroplane...you will laugh out loud (to everyone else's annoyance) almost choke from trying to hold in the tears and throw your complimentary ice-cream all over your boyfriend!!

So now im home its straight back into work and im off to shop for The Vintage Valley shop on Saturday so expect some cute goodies next week!!! finally you yell....

Great snaps, I can't wait to get there myself next month! (I totally have those boots as well - how comfortable are they!) Melbourne is one of my favourite places in the World I think : ) x

Melbourne IS amazing. It looks like you had a wonderful time! I see you are also a Frankie lover. I love their magazines too, so whimsy and crafty. I love it!

Ha, ha ... yes Melbourne is below cold this time of year. But what are BFs for if you can't steal their socks (I steal them all the time) ...
