Birthday Shenanigans (Quick outfit)


Saturday was my birthday!! I flew down to Melbourne last Thursday, I wanted to spend my birthday with my man friend and with things going well, we decided I’d come down and stay for 6 weeks. Whilst unpacking my 2 suitcases, I realised I brought more clothes with me then my man friend actually owns! I guess that’s the life of a fashionista!

I picked up my birthday dress the day before my birthday. I’d been in love with the dress for ages, and you’ve probably already seen a few Aussie bloggers rock it, but when it went on sale I went to snap it up online, only to have it sold out. My local store had it in an XL and I nearly bought it (to have it taken in at a tailor), but luckily the Chadstone store here in Melbourne had the beauty in a M & it fit like a dream!

For my birthday,  a group of friends went to lunch a Hu Tong Dumpling Bar, where we feasted on some amazing food. I’d really recommend the Dong Po square soft pork, sooo good! It wasn’t until later that I realised I was too busy socialising and having fun, that I didn’t take any photos! Ah well, I have my memories!


One of my friends is super talented & made this gorgeous owl origami art! I was speechless when I opened the packaging, it’s so beautiful! You can find more of her work here.

I’m really looking forward to spending a good chunk of time in Melbourne. I’m going to get out and explore, meet up with some people, and try to get to the zoo!

Do you have a suggestion on what I should do whilst in Melbourne?
