Ben & i have just spend 3 days (2 nights) in Melbourne & had a great little break.
it was really a work based trip for me to go to Design & Decoration.
I ran into Kerri from Driftwood interiors which was a thrill after being bloggy friends for years!)
after that there was plenty of time for....well.....lots of eating!!!
We stayed at The Crown Metropole which was amazing!
The design of that place is to die for - the rooms were fabulous & there were lots of cute little details like this to do list!
And how about this artwork in the lobby eh?
If your ever staying there you also must head up to skybar on level 28 for a drink, the view & the truffled popcorn ;)
We got the sky bus from the airport to the hotel which was very quick & easy.
Then headed straight out for breakfast to Hardware Societe, which i would highly recommend!
For late lunch we had a small bite to eat at Gochi at the Casino.
Just a little sushi take away spot with a few tables, but very good for a quick lunch on the go.
And also the best oolong tea one ever tasted!
Dinner.....ok, lets talk about dinner!
You all know I'm a bit of a lover of anything French - that extends to guillaume Brahimi!
Having eaten at Bennelong in Sydney for our wedding anniversary we were keen to try Bistro Guillaume. Boy did it live up to expectations! Dinner went something like this;
We didn't really do much shopping but i finally fort my hands on one of these country road polka dot jumpers & pretty much haven't taken it off since! i also bough the gorgeous camel coloured cape from witchery! Perfect for the wintery melbourne weather!
