Did you all have a fabulous weekend? I headed to Melbourne for a shopping mini break. Can you see a recurring theme in my purchases? Picked up some polka dot tapes, happy socks, stickers, picnic mat and a Baggu bag - such a cute little invention. Finally bought an Emily Green necklace (been wanting one for yonks) and a little notebook for jotting down ideas found at sweet Japanese stationery shop Kami in Fitzroy. Must stores to check out if your in the city also includes Yen store Tokuya, Vincent 2, Craft Victoria, Wilkins and Kent, Little Salon and Ganim's - who stock the original surprise balls by Gina Namkung!Check out some other cool stores from my little trip in the snaps below.

I can't help myself when it comes to biz cards and free press!
Great souvenirs for a travel journal ^_^
I stumbled upon this AMAZE little shop called Pet Shop Girls that have Japanese fashion, merchandise and awe-cute wall artwork. It was like I was at Shibuya 109 in Tokyo.
Ha! Pudgy Panda - what a name for a store - my look at the Hello Kitty Zakka!
