The Azulik Dream - Tulum

Arriving to the scent of Copal, fresh rose petals and a bamboo built walkway was just the start to the Azulik dream. To then step foot into our first 'jungle set' villa to find; not only an indoor mosaic tub, an outdoor one too. Day one, of course, was spent in the latter - I think I have a thing for outdoor bathing! The following morning I awoke to a glistening pink shimmer, the whole sky was glowing pink - what an alarm clock, it had me out of bed in seconds. Obviously I changed this down to the beach to catch in full glory. 

The following day's spent bathing with coconut shells, enjoying the beach bar swings, walking high among the tree tops (coconuts at arms reach) were just as dreamy. One morning we had a Mayan couple ritual performed on us with the Copal, leaving us all zen. The peaceful paradise with it's special touches - just AMAZING! 

After hanging out here a few days, already in my complete element, everything was topped with the ultimate Birthday treat... An upgrade to what I can only describe as the most spectacular holiday home I have ever laid eyes on - Azulik's Paradise Villa. A place where I could have my desired 'easy Tulum style' birthday, a place I could happily stay all day long without a worry in the world, leaving only for margarita's from the beach bar. Here I got to relax, enjoy my love, my book and put myself in a total state of relaxation, is it any wonder its such a desire. Pictured above (mostly from this villa) the perfect stay in paradise leaving us itching to go back!

I honestly couldn't thank the sweet staff at Azulik enough for making this stay so special.

Walls around the World - Wynwood

Something I have been missing a lot recently.... A good old TRAVEL post! So here is a little tale from the first stop on this 6 week adventure - Miami - home to the wonderful Walls of Wynwood!

Thanks to the 'Monocle Travel Guide to Miami' we were introduced to this artistic area, with many of the places on our to do list being part of this 'up and coming' neighbourhood. Panther Coffee was high on the list and started off our day just perfect (finally, a good cup of coffee, something greatly missed from Australia)! From here we went off exploring these brightly coloured walls, a street art exhibition from artists all over the world which has become a must see in Miami. Being the wanderer I am, the surrounding area also had to be explored where we discovered that actually, much to my delight, the whole neighbourhood had been coloured in!  The coffee and walls are not all colourful Wynwood has to offer, the day can continue on to some boutique shopping, craft beer hangouts and TACOS, yummy tacos!

Op Shop Delights

It doesn't really get any more simple than shopping at the local Op shop (and having massive success with it). Here in Paddington we are blessed to have such a humongous Vinnies overflowing with goodies. I like to go and have a good rummage once a week. This week I found this blouse extremely similar to one I was close to spending $200 on for less than 10% of the price. Bargain! Don't get me wrong I love to treat myself to luxury clothing every now and then but you can't beat a good saving from time to time. And whats better still, it's highly unlikely anyone will be wearing the same thing!

Windswept Walks

Literally blown away, not only by the wind but by the beauty of the ocean. The feeling from the sea breeze is one that always makes me happy. Taking a walk by the ocean is one of the most simple things to do and one of the most beneficial. I was left fresh as a daisy on this Sunday and ready to have a super productive week - 'A Sunday well sent brings a week of content.' Wearing A two-piece from the latest Zulu & Zephyr collection PALMS perfect for a sunny day!

Into the Woods

Because collaborating is fun. What's not to love about teaming up and getting creative with fellow talented females. Dressing up in my favourite brand, having my hair and make up done then playing around in nature having photos taken. This spot in Sydney Park works just perfectly for the bohemian theme we were going for. I actually read in a book recently that some days you should go for a walk in the woods, it can be quite inspirational!

The Simple Life

A post I have been wanting to write for a while now, talk about how a simple life really can be magical. What I want to do here, show that anyone can live this kind of life and inspire people to do so (or better still show that you already do). It's ever so simple; savour the simple things! Like a walk in the morning, shopping at the markets, treating yourself to fresh flowers, enjoying a muffin or simply stopping to drink a cider on a rooftop bar over looking the beautiful city you live in! This day included all of the above and I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. I mean my Free People dress worn may have a little to do with it also! So finally I am getting used to living back in the real world and now I can honestly say I'm loving it!

Wearing: Free People slip -, Jeffrey Campbell Boots - Apex Shoes.
