Around this time last year my friends and I squished ourselves into an old, semi-broken commodore (no offence Riley), to head on a road-trip we’d never forget. We made our way through Brisbane, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and Newcastle to end up at the Maitland Showgrounds for the Groovin’ the Moo music festival. It is safe to say we had an absolute blast but this year our plans didn’t run as smoothly. My mum, Sadie came to the rescue though and suggested an amazing alternative for the two of us: on Friday 22nd her and I were off to Melbourne! Neither of us had been for years so excitement filled the air (literally). There were two main attractions down in Victoria that we were interested in viewing, these included the Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei gallery and the 200 Years of Fashion exhibition. It ended up being one of THE best weekends ever… full of fashion, art, coffee and some serious mother-daughter bonding. The weather was good to us and so were the sales ($$$) – no complaints were made, except for on Sunday when we had to bail. All rhymes aside, it was pretty darn good. I’ve created a visual diary of our trip for ya’ll to have a look through. Enjoy!
