Wake- Up Wishlist: Brisvegas

This weeks Wake up Wishlist is a personal favourite and will forever be 'home' for me. Brisvegas (traditionally named Brisbane) is a city that is always sunny and full of hidden gems.  The streets are lined with trees that meet in the centre of the road hiding big old Queenslander homes. A true 'Queenslander' has wooden floors, high ceilings, and best of all, a great deck that wraps around the front of the house. These homes are the perfect place to have an afternoon nap while the breeze gently floats in.

Brisbane is usually the third city people list when guessing where in Australia your from. It doesn't necessarily have the buzz of Sydney or the European charm of Melbourne, but since being home I have noticed something special about Brissy. I can't put my finger on it yet, but there are little cafe's and restaurants and shops popping up that have their own charisma and spark. They are usually tucked away in a little spot, where you would be surprised to find them in.

One particular favourite is Vieille Branche , a cafe that serves the most delectable pan au chocolates and is a shop full of antiques and collectables. I walked out bouncing with ideas for new prints and inspiration for D&D head quarters.
