Will you be shopping today? What are you on the hunt for?

Insta-kikki-keepsake

Today’s find is an old-fashioned twist on a very modern trend. If you love to Instagram but are a bit nostalgic about being able to hold a photo in your hand, you (like me) might think this find is sublime! I present to you: kikki.K’s Instagram prints.

For those not familiar, kikki.K is a Swedish-inspired stationery brand. When Kristina Karlsson moved to Australia with her husband, she was surprised to be unable to find the selection of stationery and home office products she enjoyed in her homeland, Sweden. She launched her first line and not too long after opened a boutique in Melbourne. Fast-forward 12 years and you’ll find more than 70 kikki.K stores in three countries (with plans to expand ever further) plus an online marketplace that services the world. People love kikki.K. I am one of them.

Which is why I was delighted to discover their new range Instagram products, in particular, their polaroid-style Instagram prints! Totally easy to make; follow the link and click create, login to your Instagram account then drag and drop your pics until all the little cards are full. Click order! Done!

JS and I ordered a set after our honeymoon in beautiful Hawaii! Check it out:

asjspicsWe love them! Access to honey-happiness, even when the wifi is down.

The cons are that you can only print from your own Instagram account (so couldn’t for example have them printed from a friend’s adventures as a gift for them) and of course any pics you want to print must be pre-uploaded to your account.

The pros are that they’re pretty unique and more than a smidge lovely. The ordering system couldn’t be easier to use, printing and delivery is fast and your pics are printed on 270gsm card with a matt (cardboard) finish. It feels like receiving a set of postcards from your life!  They’d be perfect to include (one or two) with a thank you card, something a little unique that would surely take pride of place on the fridge.

You can create your own set for $24.95 (you get 32 prints) and pick up free from your local kikki.K store, ship in Aus for less than $3 or $9.95 for express. International shipping is $19.95 AUD.  If you’d rather create a page turning story, try their Instagram photo book instead!

*Snaps* kikki.K for a fun twist on photo keepsakes!

Discovering Eat Street Markets

The crowds would suggest that many of you sublime-seeking Brisbanites are already all over this bustling, new addition to our local food scene. The empty wharves, riverfront at Hamilton, have been converted into an industrial-style village with 60 shipping containers reconfigured as mini-restaurants! It’s like nothing Brisbane has seen before… it’s Eat Street Markets!

Eat Street Markets Sign

The outdoor marketplace is the brainchild of Brisbane identities Peter Hackworth, John Stainton and Jacki Macdonald who took their inspiration from Asian markets. Since opening in November 2013, Eat Street has grown both in size and popularity! On my first visit with the girls last weekend it was so incredibly packed, KW likened it to the EKKA on People’s Day. But even though we had longer-than-normal waits and took to having a picnic on the astroturf rather than hunt around for in-demand seating, it felt like Brisbane was alive. A bit like Southbank during the Brisbane Festival! People from all walks of life out and about in our fabulous city on a warm summer’s night, enjoying some great food and company.

I returned with JS on Friday night, much earlier (5pm) in the hope of skipping the crowds – this was a good strategy! 2 hours from dusk, it was a completely different vibe to Eat Street at night… plenty of space, virtually no queues and every bit as delicious.

Tell me about the food! 

As you might expect, with so many vendors there are LOTS of options in terms of cuisine. Korean, Malaysian, Italian, Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican, German, Hungarian, Dutch, Indonesian, Chinese, Greek, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo, snacks, meals, desserts, fresh food… I absolutely cannot do justice to the variety available. And it’s cheap! Expect to pay about $10 a plate.

There are many, many foodie gems to discover. Here are some we enjoyed + some getting lots of attention:

Korean Slider

I had a delicious Holy Cow slider from Koma Sliders

Mexican - Burrito unpacked

JS asked for a burrito in a bowl from Chilli Brothers Mexican. I tried the Nachos last weekend – definitely 2 from 2, these guys are awesome!

wholesomeness

JS (with his bottomless stomach) also tried a yummy sausage dish and some meatballs from Wholesomeness who sell exclusively gf, df meals. Next time he wants to try the Char Grilled Rib Fillet with Chimichurri sauce (above pic shared on Eat Street Markets fb page).

I heart brownies love heart brownie

A scrumptous gf brownie from iheartbrownies.

Dutch Poffertjes

Couldn’t pass up these delicious Dutch poffertjes!

Miss Julie's desserts

KW & JF tried Miss Julie’s amazing desserts last week. The above pic was shared on the Eat Street Markets fb page.

Chitty Banh Banh

Getting lots of heat is Chitty Banh Banh, run by Jake and Elle Harrison, runners up on My Kitchen Rules 2013! Their Vietnamese street food stall is a hotspot! (pic from their fb page)

Man Made Mocktails

I’m itching to try the Man Made Mocktails, $6 right by the entrance (pic from the Man Made Mocktails fb page).

Gluten Free Donuts

The people are cray-cray for gluten free donuts. Read more on the Gluten Off fb page.

Malaysian Curry Eat Street

Can’t wait to try this Malaysian Curry (pic from Eat Street Markets fb page). LOTS of people buying it on Friday.

Also feeling very curious about the Magic Mushroom Man’s stall, the Japanese pizza and Yoghurt Republic. So many things to try!

Is it just food? 

No! There’s also a bunch of gift-y stalls! Everything from home made soaps, to outdoor rugs, cute summer dresses, clocks made out of old records, around every corner is something different and unexpected!

Fresh Flower Stand Eat Street Markets

Here’s the fresh flowers stall on Friday.

There’s also organic fruit and veg, preserves and even cryovac’d meat available to purchase.

What about entertainment?

There seems to be plenty of live music and more – a squizz through the Eat Street Markets fb page reveals movie nights, Brazillian dancing and more. The facebook page is updated very regularly, it’s certainly the go-to spot to keep up with the happenings! There’s more info again at www.eatstreetmarkets.com.

I’m doing it! When and where?

The markets are open 4pm – 10pm on Friday and Saturday nights. Parking is available right next door to the markets, or on the street. Expect to park and walk. If you’re catching the CityCat, head to the Hamilton CityCat Terminal and walk up.

Eat Street Map

Not to be missed, Brisbanites, Eat Street Markets is certainly a Sublime Find! If you haven’t eat-streeted yet, you won’t regret giving this unique experience a try. See ya there!
