After a big week at uni and catching up on study, the boy and I thought we should treat ourselves to a lunch date. A ridiculously late breakfast meant that we actually weren’t at all hungry, so we decided to make a trip to Nobby beach to have a wander and try out a cafe that a friend recommended – Canvas.
Here’s hoping that today’s rain eases up a little so we can get out and dance in the streets with all the Brisbane kids tonight at Valley Fiesta.
We often complain of very little to do in this city of ours, so I hope to get amongst it and enjoy what the Valley has to offer this weekend from street parties and live music to markets and art exhibitions.
It all kicks off tonight with the girls at Vietnamese, BYO, to celebrate a very special birthday.
Tomorrow during the day there is a suitcase rummage. Ah bargains galore, I love it!
Though Sunday afternoon was rainy and grey, I ventured out to Light Space studios to have a look at some of the new range from Black Milk Clothing. Though I have seen some of the range stocked in boutiques in Brisbane, there were a whole heap of new pieces, and it is so great to be able to touch and try on everything.
Tights, tights and more tights
I came away empty handed, not for the lack of cool stuff, but rather the fact that I am not feeling in the best shape at the moment. I need a definite health kick (and tan) before attempting swimmer shopping! I am feeling a statement full piece for this year though so may return to try on some more in a couple of months.
I also braved the rain to snap fabulous street art near where I parked the car.
On Saturday morning we had a leisurely bike ride to the West End markets for a coffee and to look around the community garden. It is such a great space full of herbs and veggies, and I plan to be there on Saturday mornings whenever I can get the chance.
One of the greatest things about riding bikes is that you discover little things that would otherwise go unnoticed, fuelling my love for searching out graffiti.
Another Shida… I must drive/walk/ride past this guy at least once a week, yet I didn’t spot him until now.
I finally remembered to check out the water tanks at Davies Park in West End. The paint is peeling but these pieces still look awesome. I believe the first piece is by Mouf, and the second by Shida (again).
