Cristina Re's Beautiful Store"Where a Girl Goes"

While in Melbourne I couldn't wait to visit Cristina Re's Concept store"It's where a girl goes to spoil herself and her loved ones"

These are the words used to describe their store and they are so true!
Beautifully upholstered french style furniture with white tables and lots of flowers and other pretty things to delight

Chandeliers of our dreams

Exquisite displays of soaps, chocolates and much more

Wrapped in her exquisite papers

The soaps were all so nice it was so hard to choose

So I settled for the soft blue and pink wrapped soaps

My husband really struggled to get me to leave

I had such a wonderful time and my lunch was just perfect!

If I lived in Melbourne I would have to visit often as it really is the perfect place to go to uplift the spirit. You can visit the website here.
