More Melbourne Wanderlust!

First up today I'm doing a wee bit of work in the amazingly funky common room at Space Hotel, Melbourne. Makes quite a lovely temporary workspace I must say! This hotel is actually pretty awesome and I'd highly recommend it for anyone wanting to hang out in downtown Melbourne on a budget. It's located at the top of Russell Street so it's close to Bourke street (shopping mall) but also close enough to Lygon street (yummy food) AND it didn't take me very long to walk up to Fitzroy either (amazing art/craft/trinket shopping). Space is essentially a hostel with a few hotel comforts. You can choose to stay in a private room or in a dorm, and the shared bathrooms are a nifty all-in-one cubical (shower, toilet, sink) so you get a bit of privacy unlike those public loo style bathrooms in most hostels!
Definitely go stay here if you're looking for budget accom in the CBD! But book in advance they are super popular, of course!

My temporary workspace this morning at Space Hotel

After I meet a few deadlines, I'm off to find Pip Lincolne's lovely store Meet Me At Mikes. I can't believe it's taken me this many days in Melbourne to get there as it was on the top of my list of must-visit Melbourne spots! For some reason I thought it was a train ride away but on a closer inspection of the map this morning over breakfast, I realised it's just up the road from my hotel! (Pssst, Pip has put together a really great map of her fave spots in Melbourne - definitely worth checking out!)

In other Friday news, my "J" poster is on display at Just Us Gallery tonight so if you're a Sunny Coaster or even a super keen Brisbanite then go check out the 26 Letters Typography Exhibition! I can't reveal the poster just yet as the event isn't opening until tonight, but I'll be sure to share it here over the weekend for those who can't make the show!

In the meantime... here are a few more snaps from my exploration of this amazing city so far ❤

Down a side alley

My lovely new lavender bag

One of the many alley-ways adorned with street art. Some are so intricate, you could stare at them for an hour and not see every detail... amazing.

And the sun goes down on another fun-filled day here in the fabulous Melbourne... snapped this spectacular sky from my hotel window as I knew by the time I got outside it'd be gone!
