Life Lately #2


I cannot believe that it is already March, seriously! I swear it was just the other day that I was writing up my New Years resolutions and now we are 3 months into the year. Whewwww, the year just needs to slow down already, before we know it it will be 2015. But February has been a good month to me, I celebrated my 21st birthday in Melbourne, visited some family that I haven't seen for a long time in Brisbane, and finally got back into the swing of blogging. I still don't post as regularly as I like but I'm (slowly) organisning my life (very slowly may I just add). I didn't take that many pictures during my stay in Brisbane but below are few snaps of my time in Melbourne.


One of the most memorable parts of the trip would have to be the day of my 21st birthday with all the disasters surrounding food. I will never forget having to walk more than 10 minutes in the pouring rain to have my birthday brunch, the food was great but looking like a drowned rat was not. Then later that night walking into the most expensive restaurant I have ever been to in my life (words can't describe how swanky it was) for dinner at 10pm. Embarrassed would be an understatement, thank heavens the food was unbelievable.

We spent a lot of time wandering around. Melbourne is truly a beautiful city. I loved going up and down random alleyways and finding cute cafes and amazing graffiti art work. Of course we also hit up all the infamous shopping locations, you haven't been to Melbourne unless you have been shopping. I tried not to spend too much but I ended up purchasing some bits and pieces ... oops! One of my favourite things that we did was attend High Tea at the Langham hotel. To say the hotel was unbelievably gorgeous is not doing it justice, it was quite ritzy I must say. The food/chocolate was great I would definitely do it again.


All in all, Melbourne was pretty great! What did you get up to in February? And if you have ever been to Melbourne what was your favourite thing to do? I plan to go back eventually!

  4. Great photos! And I've added 'High Tea at Langham Hotel' to my Melbourne To Do List! Last time my husband & I went to Melbourne we didn't plan our time there wisely and missed out on seeing and doing so much. So I'm going prepared next time and making a list of things to check out and look into, so I defo loved this post!

  5. I have been to Melbourne a few times over the last couple of years, most recently last November for my birthday weekend. It is a great place to go for a weekend but I don't think I would need to go for a longer period of time, it isn't too different to Sydney.

    1. I agree, I think a weekend is more than enough! It's still a great city to visit, but I do love Sydney more
