Silk Italia, Beautiful clothing from Italy

July 17, 2016


I was taking photos today with a friend along Colombo Street when we popped into Silk Italia, which specialises in beautiful silk clothing imported from Italy. We spent quite a bit of time having a look around and chatting with Susha the owner (who it turns out is a very talented photographer). I came home with one of the hats on display (the black one with the cream floret on it). The clothing is lovely and very romantic with lace and silk. I’ll be back in for a spring summer wardrobe I think. Silk Italia is located at 383 Colombo Street – just a short walk from The Colombo. You can find out more at their Facebook page and also buy online from their shop at


Bridge Art in Sydenham

May 16, 2016


I was driving along Colombo Street today towards Sydenham, when these bright panels grabbed my attention (they’re fixed onto the bridge). They are very clever, as when you move, you see it’s not just coloured strips!


Depicting scenes of old Sydenham.


And finally, a message! How clever is that!

First Thursdays ChCh – Lost in Space Event in Sydenham

February 5, 2015


I checked out the First Thursdays event in Sydenham this evening with its Lost in Space theme. The robot costumes were very well done. An excellent event with food trucks and market stalls and live music. There was a Robot Parade and people were encouraged to dress up – I even saw a few steampunkers there.

The food looked very good – wished I had of been hungry!

Sculpture in Sydenham

March 13, 2014


This sculpture can be seen on Colombo Street in Sydenham near Brougham Street. I couldn’t see any information near by about the sculpture unfortunately. It does seem it has been placed there very temporarily.
