Newtown Photo Dairy

Newtown is a suburb in the inner-west of Sydney. It is not too far from the CBD but has a very different vibe. Abi and her mum took me there when we were in Sydney over the long weekend, and I loved it.
There were so many amazing photo opportunities and if I'd taken a photo of everything that looked amazing we would have been there all day, and barely moved a step.
Oooh, and I almost forgot, we had the best Italian in the world for lunch, seriously I would go back just for the Italian.
Anyway, back to the post- here are some photos from the day. Enjoy xx


 Excuse the blurry photo, this is where we had lunch and I felt a bit weird standing in the middle of a restaurant taking a photo.

Happy Birthday!

Hiya,
Over the last week I celebrate my birthday! I had an amazing birthday and got to spend some time with my family and had an amazing brunch at a nearby cafe.
For my birthday, I received some photography course- I can't wait to share some of my new found skill with you.


I've been experimenting with some different photography lately, and I have uploaded some of my favourites below.
Let me know what you think of them.

In holidays lights photography poppy sydney

Vivid Sydney Photo Diary

Over the weekend, when we were in Sydney, Abi and I were lucky enough to get to visit the vivid light display.
For those of you who do not know, vivid is a once a year light display than usually runs for most of June. It lights up various attractions around the harbour, including the bridge and the opera house.
I have been to Sydney a few times but have never before had the chance to visit vivid and was very glad that I did because it was so cool.
Enjoy these photos of it...

In chocolate holidays long weekend photo diary sydney

Sydney Photo Diary- City

Hello lovelies,
I am writing this about two hours after arriving home from an amazing weekend away with Abi  and her mum and sister. It's my birthday pretty soon and they decided to take me to Sydney for the long weekend.

We left on Friday afternoon, leaving school a bit early (and missing religion :-)) and arrived around dinner time. After having a good nights sleep, we began our big day in the city.

We caught the bus into the city, a bit longer than we are used to in our smaller city. And Abi and I listened to a spotify playlist (after realising we should probably have created and downloaded one onto my phone, with both of our music on it).



Arriving in the city, Abi and I were slightly awed by the huge skyscrapers and bustling city, people going about their everyday lives. Sydney is so much bigger than the city we live in, and it is a bit of an adjustment.

Our first stop was Pitt Street mall. We visited a few shops, getting t-shirts from sportsgirl, jumpers from cotton on and some lunch from Grill'd.
After lunch we walked over to the Queen Victoria Building, where we visited the Haigs- the best chocolate shop (in our opinion). Free samples from Haigs gave us the energy to continue our adventures, and we moved on and walked through the Queen Victoria Building.


Next up was Miss Shop, where we spent an awfully long time (mostly Abi trying things on with the help of her new best friend, the personal stylist)


The Galleries Victoria was next on the list, with a lengthy stay in their bookstore. Partly to rest our tired feet, and partly to enjoy all those amazing books.

After Galleries Victoria we dragged our tired feet down to the harbour for Vivid, which deserves a whole post to itself- coming on Thursday.

Did you enjoy this post? Would you like to see more of these kinds of photo-diaries? Have you ever been to Sydney?
xxxPoppy.
