Just like the creepy guy who stares at you every morning on the train. From sage selfie lighting advice to outdoor farm #life, here's the best of the best of Melbourne from Melbourne, by Melbourne. 

On sparkling water  

Girl 1: I just don't understand why sparkling mineral water is so popular now. 
Girl 2: Because it's like a soft drink without the sugar. 
Girl 1: It's like water with farts. 

So selfie, very lighting 

Girl 1: I recommend finding the best selfie lighting in your home and then just really embracing it.
Girl 2: Thankyou for your constant modern-sage wisdom. ​

Boys in sweatpants 

Guy 1: Since I've been off work, my grey sweatpant game is next level.
Girl 1: I can see your boys.
Guy 1: Exactly.

Farm #life

Person 1: Do you know that eagles hunt pigs out here?
Person 2: WHAT?! Like a full grown pig?
Person 1: No, just the piglets.
Person 2: That's Utterly. Terrifying.
Person 1: Yeah, but when you think about it, it's just like a little walking ready-meal....

Melbourne freebies 

Girl 1: I've been trying to lose weight but there's way too much free food in Melbourne.
Girl 2: I think that's the most first world problem I've ever heard. 
Girl 1: No, making sure you're across all the free food is the biggest problem. 

Girl 1: Ben and Jerry's are giving away free ice-cream today!
Girl 2: Ugh, the line is going to be massive.
Girl 1: Not as massive as my ass when I'm done with all the free Ben and Jerry's.
