A while back I gave my readers a comprehensive overview of what to pack in a carry-on for long haul international travel. This guide might have been helpful to give you an idea about what you should pack, but when it comes to packing items do you still manage to forget what to pack? Or do you remember everything except something vital like your toothbrush?
My Christmas and New Years break consisted of a relaxing time on the South Coast of New South Wales. We had to do a lot of visiting family, as is expected at that time of year.
On our way from Potato Point to Pambula, we decided to have a quick stopover at Tilba Tilba. I had never been before, but every time we drove past, my partner would always say that I would love it – it’s a vintage town filled with tea and handmade goods. I replied: “you had me at vintage!”
It’s been a scorcher of a summer in Australia this year. Apparently January 2017 was one of the hottest January’s on record with plenty of days over 35 degrees. Sometimes it’s hard to stay fashionable when it’s so hot outside…
My go to summer outfit is definitely a playsuit. You get the comfortable practicality of shorts plus there are plenty of different styles out there. So when I saw this beautiful nautical playsuit at Review, I knew I just had to have it! It’s called “Cool Breeze” and it’s been a constant outfit I’ve worn this summer.
It’s summer here in Australia – and it’s my favourite time of the year! Like most people, I’m heading to the coast for my holidays, but I also want to be rocking stylish clothes. If you’re like me then you love finding new outfit inspo. So here are a few outfit ideas for your next beach or coastal trips this summer.
One of my favourite things about travelling away is eating out at new and exciting places. My recent getaway to the South Coast was no different.
It’s often super busy at this time of the year up and down the East Coast. Without a doubt, most of Canberra leaves the territory around Christmas Eve and will stay down there until New Year’s Day (or whenever they have to return to work). Because of this, the accommodation is usually expensive and you often need to book a year in advance. We were lucky that we have family we can stay with (and have the Christmas celebrations with too) so we decided to capitalise on that this year and stay longer than our usual Christmas dash.
I’ve heard lots of good and bad stories relating to lash extensions. Despite all the stories I’ve heard, I’ve seen so many good lash selfies! What I soon came to realise was that lash extensions are often very expensive and I wasn’t quite sure why. Couldn’t I just get the same effect with single use fake lashes and not deal with the money or drama?
After months of thinking about this question, I finally decided to take the plunge and get eyelash extensions done. I decided to go to Zheanae Salon here in Canberra to get a glimpse into the world of lashing – and I was quite surprised by the results.
Being a small city, Canberra often misses out on big fashion related events. Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and Sydney has Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and they are fabulous events, often star studden and full of glamour.
So you wouldn’t expect Canberra to have anything like this, right?
When I went to Floriade this year, I attended a flower crown making class hosted by The Floral Society. Apparently they do these classes for birthdays and hens so I am definitely considering doing this for my birthday next year!
It seems that affordable and vintage are mutually exclusive… I’ve been searching for pretty vintage finds for a while, but often I have to settle with vintage inspired clothing.
