Evening everyone and welcome to another edition of random snapshots from my life 😀
Let’s start with some out and about photos
These horse and carriage sets are everywhere in the city, some of them are really beautiful though it always makes me a little sad to see the drivers wearing Akubras >_<
Also the buildings here are really old and pretty!
Ok I think I have some kind of weird obsession with architecture so enough of that now
There is a free tram which we worked out goes right from near our place to the Victoria markets! WIN! It’s mostly for tourists so it’s all old and pretty too.
Catching the tram to get groceries…
And here is Jameson the same day being unable to take a non-scary photo XD This was the best of 3 I took!
This is my favorite stall at the Victoria Markets… the fresh pasta store! I loooooove pasta and I’ve never tasted such delicious pasta as this! Super yummy and super good, I want to learn to make my own one day.
While we were taking that photo the lovely stall owner from the shop next door insisted on taking a photo of James and I together…
And then one in front of his own store…
And then one in front of his other store… So friendly! He was a really nice guy and his cheese store had a little model bicycle which completely working parts because of the Tour De France!
I got to meet up with Vanessaat Theobroma and have awesome hot chocolate 😀
She is just the loveliest girl ever! We drank so much chocolate it was crazy! Mine was so big it came with it’s own warming stand *_*
And zomg she brought me this huuuge box of presents as a welcome! My favorite part is the little foil package in the back, it grows real clovers!! I can’t wait to set it up in a window box I’m just waiting for a little warmer weather 😀 So thoughtful of her!
Celesteand I went to the Round She Goes vintage markets which were very very crushingly busy and fun.
Afterward one of James’ life long dreams came true…
He got to visit the USA food store! He’s always wishing and fantasizing about the food from America so he stocked up on some old classics like…
Sloppy joes >_<
Very pleased with himself:
I’ve been doing lots and lots of crafty projects too! I’m planning to add some of the deco I’ve been doing to the Store soon, I just need to find a day free! I’ve also gotten a whole lots of new nail supplies to play with so expect more fun to come 😀
Alice made green tea shortbread and she shared it with me! Yummy! So yummy in fact that I ate them so fast I forgot to take any other photos >_<
I met up very quickly with Nittyafter she got back from Japan too…
She brought me the cutest little nail stand back from Japan for my birthday!
We met at my very favorite cafe ever the N.Lee Bakery Cafe.
The owner saw us taking photos of each other and as they were closing up he ushered us behind the counter so we could take photos pretending to be baristas! How insanely nice is that?? He took a whole bunch of photos for us and the staff there are always so nice.
They make delicious hot chocolate and the large which is maaaasive is only $3.80 😀
James has been doing lots and lots of baking now that his parents brought down the bread maker. His favorite at the moment is pizza but he makes the dough from scratch *_* Way too much effort for me!
On the way home from the Koko Black meet we spotted a wedding party with cute classic cars!
People here love to take photos, I’m used to people asking for photos because when I wore Lolita it would happen all the time. Not used to people asking while I’m wearing Hime Gyaru though! I went shopping with James’ Mum while she was visiting and when she went to the bathroom there was a line up of people taking photos with me… it was a very surreal experience! One of the ladies thought it was very odd when I asked to take a photo with her too just so I could prove to James’ Mum I wasn’t making it up! XD
On the way home I spotted the man cleaning out and maintaining the photo booth near Flinders Station… it reminded me so much of the movie Amelie I couldn’t resist taking a photo of him in pin-hole mode!! Teenage fantasy checked off the list!
I got to have a very delicious dumpling lunch with the ever beautiful Super Kawaii Mama before she jetted off to Queensland for Greasefest. I made her a set of nails as a present and she surprised me with some earrings!
And I’ll leave you now with my two favorite snacks at the moment.
It may just be a cheap home brand but this caramel hot chocolate is seriously awesome! I like it with whipped cream 😀
And I’ve been eating lots of the little green tea/chocolate bites. Healthy diet as always XD
I hope you enjoyed these snapshots from the last few weeks, what have you all been up to?
