A BLOGGERS GUIDE TO PADDINGTON.

Hello everyone!

Today's blog post is about a very popular fashion destination in Sydney: Paddington. Paddington is known for its boutiques, good cafes and way too many picturesque backgrounds for taking photos for the gram. I've been to Paddington a few times now and I've scoped out my favourite places - especially the most grammable. So lets get to it, my bloggers guide to Paddington. Don't forget your camera!

WHERE TO EAT:

The London Hotel - 85 Underwood Street, Paddington.

If you ever have seen more grammable tables, let me know! The London has the cutest vibes and is dog friendly, so you may get to pat some furry friends in the process. The fries and rose here, it has beautiful lighting and an outdoor area for those warmer days.

The Light Brigade - Corner of Oxford Street and Jersey Road.

The stairs leading up to the rooftop of this place are really a bloggers dream. This whole place just has a vibe with three levels of complete goodness. The rooftop is the perfect place to spend the afternoon eating and drinking away with views of urban Sydney.

Sonoma Bakery - 241B Glenmore Road, Paddington.

Do I need to say more? Start your day in Paddington with your coffee and sweet or savoury treat at Sonoma. With way too many pastries to choose from, you won't be short for choice and you will get the caffeine hit you need to get your day in Paddington started. Even take some bread home with you if you wish!

The Bellevue Hotel - 159 Hargrave Street, Paddington.

Another good rooftop with seriously good food! We ended up stumbling across here cause we wanted some garlic bread and boy did they deliver. It has a cosy rooftop, with a comfy feel and isn't over crowded.

WHERE TO SHOP:

Matt Blatt Furniture - 408-410 Oxford Street, Paddington.

Even if you don't need furniture or any kind of house things, this place is a dream. It has so many funky pieces of furniture and art, you could spend an hour wandering in it and thinking up what your future house will be like.

Mon Purse - 37 William Street, Paddington.

Everyone needs a monogrammed accessory in their life. The Mon Purse store in Paddington is down a little side street with a few more boutiques and has an intimate feel to it like no other, head in and get your own accessory monogrammed, whether that be a clutch or a brand new handbag, or even just pop in for a look. Worth it!

OPUS Design - 354 Oxford Street, Paddington

This store is literally a playground for adults. Tishy and I could've spent literal hours in here, it has EVERYTHING you could imagine and a gift for anyone and everyone. From homewares to Drake keyrings to keep cups, Opus literally has it all! Definitely somewhere you need to check out, even if you don't need anything, you will find something.

Jardan Furniture - 42 Oxford Street, Paddington.

Again, even if you don't need anything. You need to visit, to be in awe of the pink and marble staircase that is.... (Let me post a picture below and that can speak for itself)

Now, obviously there is far too many clothing shops in Paddington that I ADORE but you will find them as you stroll up and down Oxford street, including Nice Martin, Incu, Les Nereids, Zimmerman and plenty more. All of Paddington's clothing boutiques are insanely beautifully, a lot of them are in terraces with wooden floors and high ceilings, don't forget to head down the side streets so you don't miss some of the gems!

WHERE TO GET THAT GRAM: 

The pink wall - 211 Underwood Street, Paddington.

Put the above address in your google maps and right opposite is the most perfect pink wall, EVER. Yes I did just give you a google address to a pink wall. Yes you do go need to stand in front of it and get that perfect outfit shot, thank me later.

Black and white terraces - 34 George Street, Paddington.

For all you monochrome babies out there, this perfect little terrace house is your ultimate backdrop.

Now, obviously there is way too many great places to list off in one blog post but as you stroll around Paddington you will find your own little gems, as well the perfect spots to get some blog pictures.
