Here are a few snapshots from my weekend away in Canberra.
I decided to book this weekend mini break to Canberra to see the James Turrell Exhibition at the National Gallery of Canberra and we were not disappointed!
The entire exhibition is based around the idea of light and manipulating it through colour and shapes. My favourite display was the most immersive - you walked into a whole room, where the walls constantly changed colours into the most divine hues! If you are looking for a cultured weekend, I would definitely recommend visiting.
The gift shop for Turrell's Exhibition was like a gallery in itself. I picked up a lovely Dinosour Design piece in the most gorgeous colour - it was so hard to pick just one, I wanted to buy them all!
Food wise, Canberra is a hidden gem! The cafe's around the university district all have a hipster vibe- we had the best avo on toast at The Cupping Room! Also worth visiting is their Jamie's Italian in the CBD. The Canberra version of this chain has lively interiors and my favourite meal - Mussel Linguini. And I can't not mention the polenta chips- oh my!
Of course no Canberra visit is complete without a visit to Questacon for the kids!
We stayed at Hotel Hotel - a design hotel which appealed immensely to my nature as a visual addict! Every detail was well thought out from the Aesop amenities, the Smeg fridge to the curated book collection. I loved staying there - I wanted to stay even longer!
The design extends into the foyer where there were plenty of hip people hanging out in the cafe/bar/library called Monster Monster - we had an amazing breakfast there Sunday Morning,
We will definitely be returning back to Hotel Hotel! Such a fun weekend away!

The stunning Autumn weather we are having at the moment means we are always at the beach..swimming, cafes, coffee, walk and of course shopping!! These are all high on on list of things to do!! Growing up so close to Bondi meant we spent a lot of time here, I used to go for a run everyday before school and also attended nippers so Bondi is always my fave!! Here three snapshots of my day yesterday!! It included coffee at my fave, Bondi Terrace and a sneaky purchase of this gorgeous wire basket from Girl and Graff.
What Beach is your favourite??
