Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my cousin at Brisbane's Emporium. I love how far Brisbane has come.
A lazy 2 hours was spent over Mojito's and tapas at The Depot. The weather was perfect with a slight breeze... What life in Brisbane is all about.
The Emporium is a hub of cute little stores and restaurants. I love that in Brisbane you can go to the one place and find everything edited to well. I found lots of wonderful little pieces, but sadly just walked away with a cute little notebook.
If you've got a sweet tooth, you cannot go past Freestyle Tout a cafe dedicated to desserts. The creme brulee is the best I've ever had and I've had a lot!
I can also never visit without a peek at the wonderful couture bridal gowns at Darb
They are an amazing work of art.
And then there's Jean Brown. Amber has done a wonderful thing to fashion in Brisbane. She has three stores - two at the Emporium, one for clothes and one for accessories and another little store at Tatersall's Arcade in the Mall.
The pieces are wonderfully selected and Amber also offers a mail order service.
Next time I'm here I'd love to stay at the Emporium Hotel.
I'm more into minimalism, but for a change, I'd love to stay somewhere this opulent.
