Homely Creatures at Life Instyle Sydney 2014

3 cute shops - The Woodsfolk, Maiike and Naughts & Crosses

Last week my boyfriend (Robin) got a job interview in Melbourne so off we went for a few days to explore the beautiful city, and imagine what it would be like to move there. I've been to Melbourne a few times before so am already very excited by the idea. This time around I got the chance to visit three stupidly-cute stores. First stop, 'The Woodsfolk' in Hawthorn. I was booking in our accommodation days earlier when in my inbox arrived the latest from the Design Files - an article about this amazing new shop. So I took it as a sign that I had to go there during my visit, I simply didn't have a choice! I made the...
