Hola Lazy Girls!
It has been a little while since my last blog post, and with moving house and keeping on top of my business, there has been a lot going on as you could imagine!
On the weekend just past I flew down to Sydney for the Sydney Retail Festival, so I thought I would give you all a little insight into the weekend.
Sydney Retail Festival is a trade show for designers to showcase their range to stores and boutiques. This was my very first business trip with Lazy Girl so you could imagine how excited I was! I was super impressed with the setup, and as you can see from the picture below, it was a real pinch me moment to see my very on booth on display!
I had such an amazing time, not only meeting buyers and industry professionals, but so many lovely labels. There was such a supportive culture - so many business owners connecting and chatting all things biz related. I can’t help but give a special mention to Gaviota for the most incredible handmade silver filigree jewellery from Columbia (also taught me to salsa dance!), Dream with Me for beautiful sleepwear (you never know you you will meet in your dreams!), Inkosi for the raddest street wear, and Olivia and Co for amazing personalised leather bags!
I also had plenty of time for EATING, which lets be honest is often the greatest part. Potting Shed was the venue of choice for Friday night, with an amazing greenhouse setting. The space is huge and totally covered in plants, you get to toast marshmallows while you wait for your friends to arrive, and my cocktail had a real life rose in it which was just spectacular.
Sunday was my day off so I took the chance to explore Grounds of Alexandria which is right next to Potting Shed in Alexandria, Sydney. A huge marketplace, there are stalls of little wagon carts with donuts and sweet treats, an enormous display of the most amazing flowers, and an incredible greenhouse that you can eat your breakfast in. Everything is made with local produce too, which I thought was great. They also have a marketplace where local brands set up stalls, so I really enjoyed getting to meet some of the local brands on display.
I really enjoyed checking out a different side to Sydney - I have only ever been to the city and Darling Harbour! What are your favourite parts of Sydney? Let me know in the comments!
