I am back at home today after what has been the most amazing trip, i miss Sydney already. Our hotel was a lovely old mansion with lovely antique furniture,floral wallpaper and beautiful orchids everywhere, and every tree outside was full of fairy lights.
And every day was spent discovering new things, hours and hours were spent at the zoo and the aquarium;which was so beautiful at night, watching amazing nature documentaries in 3d at the imax theatre and hunting down thrift stores and vintage stores.
The Papa bear and the baby bear footprints
I will miss the macaroons from the lindt cafe and the chocolate and ganache cupcakes from the cupcake bakery.
Such an amazing trip, hope your weeks were all just as lovely.

Today i am beginning to pack to go to Sydney this weekend, and drinking some hot chocolate to keep warm. It is the perfect day for staying in.
So my room is covered with every scarf, knit beanie and dress i own. I am packing expecting cold weather so knit beanies, oversized cardies and leggings for layering are on top of the list, as well as a couple of books for the trip; a thrifted copy of picnic at hanging rock and the biography of Jayne Mansfield.
Im so excited looking forward to the markets and op shopping in a new city, but i am also looking forward to all the lovely little out of the way cafes, especially the Lindt cafe - i have heard amazing things about there macaroons and waffles with white chocolate ice-cream. Yumm.
After a lovely easter break, feeling spoilt with too much chocolate and the most beautiful weather i am looking forward to going back to work tomorrow.
Though i wont be back at work for long before i am soon off to sydney for a couple of weeks for a holiday. I am excited to hunt down some vintage and thrift stores and markets as well as to go to the zoo.
I am dreaming of the perfect outfit to pack - which probably includes a straw boater.
