Go get yourselves some Melbourne

Hello lovelies, I am back!! Melbourne was AMAZING and I envy those who are lucky enough to LIVE THERE! Not only is the food, shopping, culture, architecture fantastic, it's also a really manageable, accessible city.

I won't give you a laboursome account of my trip, but I ate a LOT, walked MORE than I thought was actually possible, shopped a WEE bit and explored as much as I could.

I even got to see the Tutankhamun exhibition which is currently in Melbourne on its last stop before heading back to Egypt. It was amazing and it renewed my interest to learn more about ancient Egypt.

Here are some snapshots from the first two days in Melbourne..
Breakfast on Sunday at Victoria Market. Biggest. Croissant. Ever.
Floor art at Federation Square.

I'll post more Melbourne snapshots tomorrow. But here's my shopping!!
Duty Free!! My favourite Gwen Stefani perfume came with this free 'bento box' of makeup! Awesome!
I do love a hairband!These are both Alannah Hill.
My Alannah Hill hairband. I'd never heard of her before, but loved her designs!!
My new nautical scarf was a mere $5!!

You can't see it too well here, but it's a gorgeous leather cuff :)
We found a designer warehouse clearance and I snapper up some tights, a scarf and some candles..

 You Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous and Russian Navy by OPI found themselves into my basket in Duty Free :)
And thankfully my new teapot arrived back in one piece!
