"Wanderlust consumed her; foreign hearts and exotic minds compelled her.

She had a gypsy soul and a vibrant hope for the unknown. "

It’s not often enough that we treat ourselves. 

Last Saturday I spoilt 10 of my beautiful girlfriend’s to a day of nail art, mouth-watering Japanese delights and delicious girly cocktails.

When I came up with the idea to throw a bit of a ‘girls day out’- the first place that popped into my head was one of my favourite Sydney restaurants, Crane Bar in Kings Cross. Their atrium out the back of the restaurant is simply beautiful- one foot inside and it’s not hard to imagine you’re sitting in a beautiful Japanese garden, complete with cherry blossoms and a hanging willow. 

The fabulous staff at Crane provided all the girls with a refreshing cocktail on arrival (in a hot pink mason jar no less!) and later on, a pick and mix of their finest Japanese delights that looked almost too good to eat!

Some of the favourites on the day were the sashimi nachos, spicy chicken wings and ALL of the delicious dumplings. (Seriously, we had to order seconds. Diet starts tomorrow?)

Whilst most of the ladies got stuck into the food, the absolute babes at I Scream Nails- who had flown up to Sydney especially for the event- worked their magic on our nails. 

These ladies create teeny tiny masterpieces on your nails- everything from bright leopard prints to eyeballs, candy stripes and even adorable little pug faces. If you’re ever in Melbourne make sure to hit them up however be warned- I Scream nail art is HIGHLY addictive.

A huge thank you to the wonderful staff at Crane Bar, the beautiful girls at I Scream Nails and most importantly- my amazing friends who have stuck by me through thick and thin these last 6 months- you deserve to be treated like a princess every day (but once a month will do right?)
