It's official—winter has arrived in Sydney. And while for some, this means hibernating on the couch with a bottle of red and re-runs of Game of Thrones (yeah, we know you), we've put together a stellar list of things to do in Sydney this weekend to entice you. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your jackets 'cause here's what's on this weekend in Sydney.
World Martini Day at The Barber Shop
One of our favourite speakeasy bars in Sydney, The Barber Shop, is celebrating World Martini Day by offering customised Belvedere martini cocktails, created by Australia's finest mixologists. So, whether you prefer your drink shaken or stirred, dry or wet, with lemon or olive, get down to The Barber Shop and kick-start your weekend early. Hope you don't have work tomorrow!

Etsy Pop-Up at West Elm
We couldn't have been happier when Brooklyn-based homewares store, West Elm, finally opened its doors in Sydney. And now we've got new reason to smile, as West Elm is set to transform its Bondi Junction outpost into an Etsy pop-up shop this Saturday from 1-6pm. In true Etsy style, you can expect everything from beautiful soy candles and stationery, to handcrafted jewellery, homewares, and skincare.
