Linda's Lovely Little Melbourne Trip September 20 2014, 0 Comments

The amazing cake display at The Hopetoun Tea Rooms, there is a constant queue to get in, but it is well worth the wait!

Taking a break from my workroom (and blogging) duties I was so lucky as to be able to escape away to Melbourne for a small break. Each day was filled with exploring alleyways and arcades, discovering intimate bars and restaurants and of course a little bit of shopping here and there, here is a little photo journal of my time away...

H&M was quite spectacular


 Adored this glittered Eiffel Tower in the window of Alanah Hill.

Beautiful little dress from Anaessia


 Hot chocolates at The Hardware Societe

 The wonderfully whimsical Lady Petrova

 Baked eggs from The Hardware Societe which quickly became our favourite cafe

One can dream!

The sweetest macaron shop La Belle Miette

Zumbarons! by Adriano Zumbo
