Emporium - Brisbane

I'm flying back to Melbourne tonight and they're saying it's meant to be 17C over the next few days... which means my idyllic week in Brisbane is all but over.

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. 


  1. I love love love Brisbane, I'd live there in a heartbeat rather than nz! haha.

  3. Amber is one of my closest friends, she is a genius when it comes to fashion as well as a great girl. I love Jean Brown. I've shopped all over the world and it is definitely on par with the best.Thanks for commenting on my blog x
