On Saturday I went to my first ever fixie bike swap run by Deus bikes. The event was in Camperdown at the Deus store. May I say that riding in t
he city on Parramatta road is the bloody scariest thing ever, especially if you don't have a helmet like me, whose main purpose in refusing one was to look cool and not to ruin ones hair. I don't think i'll be attempting another ride out in the main streets of Sydney anytime soon. The Deus bike swap was run in a pretty squishy place for a bike market, but they had some pretty nifty gadgets that have got my fingers twitching to do some modifications to my very own fixed gear bike. I would love new pedals and straps for my fixie and also even new purple coloured rims to go with my awesome purple coloured fixie.
Rick and I only ended up staying at the Deus bike swap for about an hour and then headed towards the Woolloomooloo Festival of wheels. This place was set out so much more better than the Deus one. The store was set in a warehouse in Woolloomooloo, with a workshop in the middle, DJ and food and drinks. The displays were so much more cleaner and crip and looked like it catered to a more high end market. I was able to get some pretty cool photos too.
On Sunday the Sydney Aroma Festival was held out at the Rocks. The festival had vendors for coffee, tea and spices and also had stalls for restaurants to feature a few of their foods from thier menus. It was absolutely manic there. So so so soooooooooooooo many people. It took me a while to find my friends and Rick and I kept getting separated by the mounts of people there. We were able to pick up some awesome flavoured chilli. I was really dissapointed when this tea vendor called Tea Drops didn't have any more of their honeydew green tea. As anyone can tell you I am obssessed with anything melon flavour related. There was also this really cool concept of flavoured marshmellows. These were marshmellows in flavours such as bailey's milk liquer and blueberry or lime flavoured masrhmellows. The little coloured cubed squares looked adorable in thier little plastic bag packaging. We ended up leaving at about 2pm only because by this stage, the crowds were getting way too out of hand and it was just getting massively packed where we couldn't even move around.
So there is my awesome weekend everyone, and hope that all yours were as enjoyable.
I go back to uni this week and that means you will be seeing a more architecturally focused blog. I'd also like to do some outfit posts and I've had a lookbook account for ages and am now dying to use it.
See you all soon. x
ps. my much awaited vivienne westwood armour ring came in the mail last week and I have been wearing it to death all weekend!
