One of the really wonderful freelance jobs that I get to do is providing insider tours of Melbourne to visiting journalists who need introductions to all things fashionable in my favourite city. So I was very excited when  had I the opportunity to visit the Queen Victoria Market to explore the fashionable side of the market; to think that I’d previously thought it was all just delicious boreks and fresh produce! My exploration of the market culminated in my sharing some of my style finds in the market’s beautiful publication, Market Life, that was distributed to homes through the Herald Sun earlier this year.

Now I’m looking forward to share more of my great fashion finds at the market through the Market Insider tour that is running this Saturday from 10am-12noon. Join me as I take you through and introduce you to the wonderful retailers who will keep you in style for work and play- plus ideas for Mother’s Day! For instance, I want you to meet the specialist sock seller who, when I was there, recalled all the socks a customer had bought the previous week which was a good thing because said customer was really happy with them and had returned because he wanted more of the same but himself couldn’t remember which socks he’d bought. I don’t know about you but I cannot remember the last time I got service like that when buying socks!

Want to win a double-pass to join my Market Insider tour?

  1. Hola senorita!

    My week is filled with writing a report on rural and regional planning schemes in Victoria, as well as Little Goldfish research. And how’s this serious cold snap!? Kept me and my back bed-ridden today – boohoo.

    Hope your rotten cold is on its way out and that your first week back is not so awful.
    See you tomorrow? I’ll pop up if I have some time before I start.


    • Hola gorgeous Hollie!
      Boo hoo for your back but I hope you kept yourself cosy! Look forward to catching you back in the office (yes I’m in tomorrow!) x

    My week has been fab. Returned to work today after five days off! It’s Thursday tomorrow (payday) and the weekend is fast approaching! whoop, whoop, happy days !!

  3. My week is so-so. I gave a speech at a school (great!), had a car accident (boo), am on holidays – a Staycation (great!) but have a cold. The best thing is my blog project for Ichthyosis Awareness Month that launched today – sharing 31 voices, and am so proud.
    Great prize Chez x

    • Carly! I’ve just seen your FB posts about this project – it sounds amazing, you clever woman. Sorry to hear that you’re unwell too and about the accident (big boo) but hope to catch up for brunch soon? x

    Been recovering from a mass hangover from a boys trip in Adelaide and would be great to finish off the week with something like this. Also remember you snapping my ex-girlfriends brother and myself at the Tennis Open 2 years ago haha. hope your colds getting better 🙂

  6. My week is going well, thanks Cheryl! I start a new job next week so I am making the most of my free time before it disappears… I’m getting a new haircut tomorrow so I’ll be all ready to start work on Monday. xx Simone

    How’s your week going?

  8. michelle says

    How’s my week going? Disrupted (due to an injury in the family), yet still trying to manage all the usual events and appointments that bring joy and enlightenment, as well as the daily/weekly chores and errands that simply need to get done. Thanks for asking!
