Hail the Sale

by cecylia on May 21, 2013

The wonderful folks at Highpoint have just shared some news that I cannot not share with you: Highpoint Shopping Centre is having its first ever sale after the launch of their newly furbished multi-million-dollar fashion precinct on Wednesday 22 May. The centre will have late night trading until 10pm, it’s like Christmas in May! There are so many exciting events happening around the centre, including a Hibernation Station (see deets below), Indulgent Sensory Experiences (I’ll explain more later), Fitness Classes (Free yoga anyone?), a Live Jazz Zone and Craft Workshops just to name a few. You may recall that I attended the opening event [HERE] where I met and interviewed UK Blogger sensation Poppy Dinsey. Here are some photos I’d taken of Highpoint that I haven’t had the opportunity to share yet. I’m wearing Vanessa Bruno Dress with vintage accessories (do you remember this outfit in [THIS] post?), Poppy is in a Nicholas dress from Green With Envy.



Gotta start with my favourite event of course :) Indulge our senses as we journey throughout the Centre’s Sensory Stations:

Taste: Enjoy perfectly balanced flavours with Wolf Blass wine and KoKo Black chocolate tasting

See: Feast your eyes upon the latest luscious winter accessories from Highpoint’s retailers and enjoy styling advice from Highpoint’s official fashion contributor Giovanna from Dusty Petals, she is one of the sweetest fashion bloggers I’ve ever met! Look out for a brunette pocket rocket with ounces of style!

Smell: Embrace your perfect scent and find the winter aroma that suits you best, because we all need that fragrant pick me up when the mercury drops.

Touch: How would you like to be pampered and enjoy a sumptuous hand massage?

Sound: Escape on an audio journey and enjoy soft classic notes in the morning, a jazz trio in the afternoon, before a DJ helps you dance the night away

When: Throughout the day in the Centre


The West’s renovation royalty, Josh & Jenna from The Block, will design and build Highpoint’s ultimate Hibernation Station. They will bring to life  the  perfectly  cozy relaxation space, incorporating the latest styles and trends from Highpoint’s home and lifestyle stores. Always keen to learn how to keep my home clean and stylish,I can’t wait to hear their top interior-decorating tips!

When: 5:00pm – 8:15pm (7:45pm meet and greet)

Where: David Jones forecourt new Fashion Mall, Level 2



Get lost in a world of imagination and create a piece of take home art in kid’s craft workshops from Kaisercraft. I wonder if there’s an age limit for this…

When: 4:00pm – 7:00pm

Where: Target Mall, Level 2


Perfect for a stylish sloth like me :) Be prepared to find our inner yogi and take a breather from the bustle of the Centre with calming yoga and an energizing combat class headed by the lululemon athletica staff, and then we’d have the perfect excuse to devour some seriously decadent macarons…

When: Flow Yoga 12:00pm – 1:00pm, Body Combat 2:00pm – 3:00pm

Where: Centre Court, Level 1



And of course, the best way to relax at Highpoint is to recline on a beanbag whilst enjoying exclusive live performances from some of Melbourne International Jazz Festival’s finest, perhaps with a glass of Wolfblass Moscato?

When: 4:30pm  – 9:30pm

Where: Centre Court, Level 1


 Guess we’d better hop to it! Give me a hola when you get there!

 Where: Highpoint Shopping Centre: 200 Rosamond Road Maribyrnong

When: Wednesday 22 May until 10 pm

Highpoint购物中心与我分享了一些扣人心弦的新闻,我无法不与大家分享:今天(5月22日星期三)Highpoint购物中心会在他们新装修过的商场里主办有史以来第一次的大销售。中心将会营业直到晚上10点!整个中心会有许多令人兴奋的节目,包括休眠站(详细信息请看见下文),感官体验(让你的五官有超人的经历 ),健身课程(免费瑜伽与打击课程),一些现场的墨尔本著名的爵士乐队会为大家带来精彩的表演。您可能还记得,极个月前我[这里]参加了 Highpoin的开幕活动。那天我遇见并采访了英国的博客小姐PoppyDinsey。这些的照片是当天我在Highpoint拍的,以前我还没有机会分享。我穿的连衣裙是法国设计师Vanessa Bruno的(你还记得我在这篇文章 里也穿着这件衣服吗?),Poppy穿的是条Nicholas裙子。

hehe I would totally want to play in the kid’s craft worshops too!

My mum visited Melbourne a few weeks after I did – I told her to try checkout highpoint for the shopping but she never got round to it. It’s on my list for next time. Along with more cupcakes and not getting lost as often ;) haha!

hehe you’d be glad to know Mica that Cupcake Central opened up their 3rd cafe at Highpoint!!! :) Wow what did your mom get up to when she came to visit?


Mica May 23, 2013 at 6:19 pm

Ugh, jealous there is another cupcake store! They were the nicest things I ate in Melbourne!

My mum – being completely unconstrained with dietary requirements – enjoyed all of the different foods Melbourne has to offer. They (she went with friends) tried a new restaurant each meal and had a blast visiting all the sights. She had never been to Melbourne before, and she loved it. :)
