When In Melbourne

I apologize for the lack of posts recently, I've actually been away these last few weeks. I went down to Victoria to visit my Nanna, and I was lucky enough to visit Melbourne for a day. One of the things I was most excited about were the amount of Asian cosmetic stores they have there. Brisbane, as far as I know, have nothing. So the first thing I did was make my way towards Bourke Street. Here's what I picked up in my travels:

Why You Cosmetics were the first store I went into, just down Russel Street. I picked up a Holika Holika's Pig Nose Clear sheet and the Etude House Wonder Pore Cleansing Brush. Next stop was Yuki House, where I bought the Iope CC cream for a very pricy $60. They did give me a free bottle of a Fancl collagen drink though, which I've heard is huge in Japan. And last but not least, a giant 300ml can of Avene's Thermal Spring Water which I picked up at a Chemist Warehouse for $17! Okay, so it wasn't exactly a cheap trip in the end. To be honest, I could have bought all these items much cheaper online. Oh well, I really wanted to bring something back home for myself. No regrets!

    1. Hi Rae! I've never lived in Sydney, so I may be a little biased towards Melbourne, but I would much prefer living in Melbourne. Sydney has the harbor, the opera house, a couple of beaches, and that's about it haha. It really is a city for tourists. There's a lot more to do in Melbourne, arts and culture wise, food is amazing, and it's also a lot cooler there year round compared to the rest of Australia, (if you're worried about the heat).
      Hope that helps your case!
