French Twist

Hello my lovelies. I hope you are well. I'm on a bit of a I love Brisbane high at the moment. I just found this wonderful winter event that is starting tomorrow, but I will write about that next time.

Last Saturday, I went to French Twist with my girls Laura and Kristina. It was kind of send off for Laura who is now in Europe with her hubby for 5 weeks. 

French Twist is just the most beautiful place. The interior had vintage furniture, chandeliers, pretty teacups, but we weren't allowed to take photos, so we took a few sneaky shots with our iPhones. 


The sun was shining through that window and it was utterly enchanting. 


Laura's macarons. They were so yummy. 


My chicken baguette I had for lunch. 


I loved the sugar cubes and the way everything was brought to us. 


My China Rose tea (I thought I would try it). It was lovely. And the teacup and saucer were so cute. 


This is the inside part of French Twist. Absolutely beautiful inside!


This is the picture I had from the last post :) I took home that 3 pack of macarons. 



I had to show this picture with a part of the interior. I wish we were able to sit here. 

Finding these places make me want to be a tourist in my own city. So many places to discover. Have you ever found hidden treasures in your city even when you have lived there for years?

Have a great rest of week.
