Vera Wang Sydney Store

The big fashion news of the week is that Vera Wang has just opened her first Australian stand-alone store! I'm sure there are big cheers from Australian brides who no longer have to go through Helen Rodriguez stores to get their paws on her famous dresses.

The store opened yesterday in one of my favourite Sydney hotels - the InterContinental - so I'm yet to have a chance to wander in or see any pics but I'll definitely be stopping by to have a sticky beak.

For the non brides (like myself!) out there, who else is hoping there will also be some delectable eveningwear to choose from too?

Here's some examples:

Visit Vera Wang at the InterContinental hotel Sydney, Shop 5, 117 Macquarie St., Sydney

Edit: Just a quick edit on this post to add that I happened to visit the InterContinental hotel last night and  wandered past the VW store! They literally just switched off the lights as I walked past so I could only take this quick terrible iPhone pic :)

I'm back!

Hello, world! I'm back from my holidays and wow, does it feel like it was just yesterday that I was leaving beautiful Sydney. It is indeed very strange to be back and of course there are lots of people to catch up with, food to eat, changed places to see and generally be brought back to reality. Going back to work will be difficult!

Anyway I also have lots to post about - my travels took me to 12 different countries, on 14 flights and some of the most amazingly beautiful places in the world. I'll try and post photos in the coming weeks but in the meanwhile, a quick pic of my first proper meal back in Sydney :)

Traditional and authentic Malaysian prawn noodles and chicken rice from To's in North Sydney! It is one of the only places in Sydney that does prawn noodles properly and always worth the trek for me. Let's just say after a few months in Europe I've been dying to eat some of my favourite food in Sydney and this is one of them!

Meanwhile, for everyone in Sydney - who's ready for the arrival of Winter?

Beautiful Russia!

Another quick post just to show you guys this amazing picture I took in Russia - I've been traipsing around Eastern Europe which of course includes a few stops in Russia which was absolutely spectacular.

Unfortuntaely my best camera has malfunctioned since then, but I have still been able to capture some beautiful photos.

This one was taken in Moscow's Red Square - St Basil's Cathedral.
