hosting @ccsyd

So yesterday I got to host a Sydney social Instagram account called @ccsyd. It’s one of those ‘pass the baton’ concepts where people do a day-in-the-life for everyone to share and then pass it on.

Many people think social media is impersonal but I find it the complete opposite. I love the way it helps you connect to people you wouldn’t otherwise have met (like you!) and it even more weaves a community feel when it’s based around your own city!

Here are my photos from the day in the life of @thisismelly.

View on my workout...beautiful Sydney

Seriously, doing my workout outdoors is so much better than at the gym. It never gets boring with this view!

my favourite little monster Harley

I can’t explain to you how happy Harley is running next ahead of me! Especially with a stick in his mouth!

Coffee from my local; Kebo in Pyrmont

Picking up coffee from my fave local cafe Kebo on my way home from the run is the best. And check out their new graffiti art work!

Work; 2nd floor from the top

I’ve been doing a project here at a client site for almost a year now! Channel 7 & Pac Mags is in the building so I get to see a few famous faces; Koshie, Home & Away actors, Jackie Frank from Marie Claire, Better Homes & Gardens presenters and random celebs coming in for interviews.  Its fun!

Lunch at The Grounds; Moroccan poached chicken salad

Our senior manager Ben came to meet with Mands & I and took us for lunch at The Grounds…yum!

Street art in Glebe

Capturing a pic of this amazing street art on my way home…

Blooms on my table

Any excuse to take photos of flowers!

Love it when I'm home in time for dusk over the city; view from my balcony

This view never gets old.

Vivid Light Festival @ Darling Harbour

After Jay arrived home from work we took Harley down to see the light show on as part of the Vivid Festival. We got ‘naked burritos’ from Mad Mex and sat on the wharf.

Thanks for having me @ccsyd!

Loved sharing my day with the Insta-world; hope you enjoyed it too!
