Bloggers Breakfast with The Village Markets

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of sharing a breakfast date at Commune with some of the loveliest and most talented Gold Coast bloggers, followed by a spot of shopping at The Village Markets.

Liss & Ally

Though we tend to stay in touch via facebook/instagram/twitter/email, it has been some time since our last meet up – so it was fabulous spending a morning catching up with some online friends in real life.

Since I am such a dreamer, I have loved reading about the dreams of some of my favourite bloggers. The lovely Ally from Unknown Pleasures tagged me to take part in Sportsgirl’s Believe, so if you are interested, I have shared some of my dreams with you below.

Q: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: Mum and Dad tell me that when asked this question I said… ‘I want to be a grown up’. Since that was inevitable, I changed my mind quite often with what I really wanted to do – I eventually had my mind set on palaeontology as I loved dinosaurs, then I moved onto wanting to be a vet since I love animals. I came to the realisation that a vet had to see sick animals, so by high school I was thinking that zoology or marine biology would be ideal. That was until a teacher burst my bubble telling me how few jobs there were in all of those fields, and I settled on a career in science.

Un Pour Moi, Un Pour Toi

I know I talk quite a bit about my amazing friends and their latest projects, but I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such talented and inspiring people and really love sharing with my readers, especially when they are involved in something that you may also be interested in.

When I first met Jessy I was not only amazed by her impeccable sense of style, but also inspired by her creativity and passion for each and every thing that was discussed.  All of that was on top of her being such a fun and like-able person that I felt like I clicked with instantly.

Op Shop Friday

Last Friday at uni was Op Shop day – where everyone found an item in the local op shops and money was raised to go back to local charities.

My biggest challenge was which of my many op shop outfits to wear on the day, and also – how crazy I should go to make sure I didn’t just look how I do every other day.  I took it upon myself to give some of the girls an ‘op shop lesson’ and took them around to a few of my favourites in Southport, teaching them how I go about finding so many amazing pieces.

Finders Keepers Markets

I was so happy to discover that our visit to Brisbane was coinciding with the Finders Keepers markets.  Held in the Old Museum, it was a wonderful setting and perfect day to discover talented artists and designers, while catching up with some blogging friends.

The wonderful Liss was busy manning the pretty stall for her online store: Stylemilk.  We managed to squeeze in a quick chat and a couple of pics before the stall was overrun by customers.
