Earlier this month we popped over to Melbourne for quick getaway. It's been on our hit list for quite some time now so it was very exciting to spend a weekend there exploring the city. 
We stayed in a hotel in Southbank which turned out to be a handy spot. We pretty much walked everywhere, except for a train ride to Prahran. Oh, and half a taxi ride to IKEA (it was a bit further than we thought). Next time we'll research the trams.

A few things we did ...
+ Had a delicious and well priced Eggs Bene from The Quarter on Degraves Street.
+ Got lost in The Chapel Street Bazaar in Prahran. That place is nuts! My goodness. 
+ Devoured cupcakes from Little Cupcakes. I tried the Carrot Cake and Passionfruit. Possibly the best cupcakes I have ever eaten. DIVINE!
+ Visited ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image)
+ Admired all the street art and graffiti 
+ Wandered around IKEA. Picked up some grey Bertil Chair pads, Molger storage boxes and Flata storage rack for our bills and letters
+ Breakfast with friends at the very hip Journal in Flinders Lane
+ Picked up a writing set from paper heaven Il Papiro.

The low point of our holiday was returning to a burgled home. If you have been a victim of a break in you'll know the feeling. Still, trying to stay positive and not let it ruin such a great time away.

Have a lovely weekend!
