Sight seeing, Melbourne adventures & a fabulous friend.

Our Melbourne Adventure continues after searching around the markets in the morning we head to Flinders St Station where I was meeting one of my dear friends who lives in Melbourne – the lovely Miss Ally. This girl is so amazingly awesome, so I was super excited to see her! We met up and headed off to lunch down an alley way – it was so cool to being shown around Melbourne by a true “Melbourne Girl”. Just let me fill you all in on a bit about the fabulous Ally, this girl is the kindest person & such a beautiful lady, she gave me the confidence to start this blog (& helped me out with the first one, proof reading and giving me tips) she has been a friend of mine since about I was 16/17 and we’ve always been in contact via one of the many social networking sites... I am very blessed to have met such a fun, positive and wonderful friend who has such an amazing spirit and is beautiful inside & out... She really is one of a kind. And WOW this girl is nice she is so complimentary and just so full of life and positive it’s really refreshing to hang out with someone like that...

She showed us the most unique & “street art” filled alley way; I believe it was near Degraves Street (which is also where we made Trent take about a billion snaps of us – also where I discovered Ally had the coolest camera, it has like a “colour grab” function... so the cool black & white with one colour photos on here; all the credits go straight to Miss Ally!). She was such a delightful person to catch up with; she even showed me one of her favourite designer stores “Alannah Hill”. This store was absolutely gorgeous (very Bella in Bindyland...)! I picked up the cutest blue little long sleeved top and a STUNNING head band (which I wore to Trent’s Pop’s 80th birthday party!). After we raced to get back to Flinders St Station after our impromptu mini shopping spree, we said our goodbyes & hopes to see each other again soon & we raced to catch our train back to Beveridge.
When we got home it was the official family catch up dinner, which was full of so much emotion, love, happiness and just fun. Such a wonderful night!
The lovely Ally captured this tourist shot of Trent and I entering Degraves St. My fav' Melbourne pic!
