Last weekend a went with a bunch of friends for a getaway. It was so much fun! Dining out at some of the best restaurants, shopping every chance we got, partying like no tomorrow.....ahhh miss it!
I headed down Thursday morning so I could spend some quality time with my gorgeous friend Lucy who is lucky enough to live there. Another friend of mine was down for the weekend from Canberra, so we had a merry old time :). Had a great time shopping down in Brunswick. After burning some cash we had a fabulous lunch at Green's which seems to be a popular local joint. We also visited a Mediterranean food wholesaler...I got so excited omg. They have the BEST pastas, sauces, fresh cheeses, charcuterie....omg I nearly cried that I don't live near such a place. To compensate for this fact we stopped for a few nibbles, which made me want to stay even more :(.
|Just the pasta aisle alone got me excited|
|Italian Wine heaven|

We ate at some preeeeettty hot places throughout out trip! Luce took me to dinner at Cookie, and they had THE BEST PRAWNS I HAVE EVER HAD. EVER. Dining at Chin Chin was defs a pleasurable experience. Loved their drinks menu!! We also got the opportunity to go to Cumulus Inc. for lunch! Gorgeous concept of sharing plates and all the dishes complemented each other (I've got some posts lined up for all these wonderful eateries). Little Cupcake Bakery was also on the must visit list. I don't normally like cake but these were so adorable and light! Couldn't leave without a few macarons from Brunetti, a Melbourne institution. AND a visit to Burch & Purchase for my Salted Caramel fix!
|Yuuuuuuummm!! Best chocolate EVER|

But my fav part was hangin with my girls =). I couldn't think of a more gorgeous, fabulous, crazy, fun-loving, emotional, soul-bearing bunch of ladies to go with <3. I still laugh at the memeory of us sitting in shock in Fed Square as Nadi serenaded us, and most of Melbourne, with One Direction. Ahh love you guys!
Can't wait to go again! =D xx
