Sydney Sights

Hello all! Well it's Friday evening and I've finished work for the Bank Holiday weekend! Woohoo!
The bf has been away for three days and should be home very shortly. We're both shattered so are looking forward to a quiet Friday night!

Here are some pics of my weekend in Sydney. Can you tell it rained?!?!
Obligatory Newport shots (it's where I'm from in the UK!)
Sydney was hosting an event called Vivid - the city was lit up with all sorts of wonderful light displays!

FIVE of these gorgeous parrots visit my friends' balcony every day!!!!!

It went from this.... this in minutes!!! I ran SO fast!

And lost the handle off the umbrella I bought that day!!! I didn't dare go back for it in that rain!
So I used it as a good excuse to visit the Belgian chocolate cafe ;)

What are your plans for the weekend? I can't believe another week has passed by so quickly (hang on, I sound like my grandfather!!).


  1. Thank you for taking the time to pop over and comment! I'm honoured!

    I'm in Adelaide, it's been a lovely week...but the weather is back as of today. Grrr. Being from LA, this weather shocks me, I've never been so cold, wet & soggy! : D

    Great shots of Sydney, they do know how to dress up for a party, right? See you again soon, I adore your blog!

  2. Yah! I am going to Sydney this weekend (but you knew that already). I hope it doesn't rain.

  6. i am so insanely jealous it's untrue!!! this weekend my niece is going back home, so it'll be my first few days after exams all to myself and i cannot wait!!!!!
