So it has taken me forever to finally get these photos up haha, so many photos and it has been quite a bit 2 weeks getting back into uni mood. but there are here and of course this is only part 1 :) my week at spell is coming very soon with more BHS shots of my week there :)

Byron Bay was actually the best decision I have made. As my friends all said they were worried once i visited I wouldn't want to come back... well lets just say it could be very much true. I felt so welcome and as if i was meant to live and be there. The inspiration that i found and the wonderfully beautiful and generous people i met make byron such a paradise for me. I must say the shopping was a high point for me but seriously why don't we have a Hope and May in melbourne haha. It was just the best thing to meet the people behind so many labels i have loved and some worked with such as the lovely Arnhem girls, Celeste Twikler, Goddess of Babylon, Myee Carlyle, Delphine Racca, Hope & May and Sweet Papillion. 

I wish i had a few extra days there to explore a little more, but i guess that just means i need to organise a trip back very soon hehe. I think if you are considering going there, definitely book your flights ( maybe wait till the storms are gone :P). Byron Bay gave me the inspiration i had been searching for, the reminder of why i love fashion design, the persistence to finish my course and the belief in my making my dreams come true. I will be back very soon.....

visit some of my favourite stores here.....
