Taiwan Tales - Taipei

The main reason I do my job is to explore new places, some of which I may never have thought to visit. Taipei is one of those for sure so my excitement levels were pretty high for this trip. Just that feeling of wandering round a city that is so different to what I am used to just makes me smile. When I arrived I went for a walk around the local neighbourhood and stocked up on random food before getting an early night for the next day's hike. As usual I wanted a good view of the city so Elephant Mountain it was. After huffing and puffing our way up The Xiangshan Hiking trail, climbing the rocks at the top and nearly getting blown over, we had the perfect view over Taipei and the Taipei 101 building. 

Wearing: Leopard print dress from American Apparel, Floppy Hat, Black Boots and of course Black Backpack.

French Fancie - Nice

Even though this day was a while back it really does deserve a mention. One of my favourite photo diaries yet. My morning in Nice, Sep 2013. I've always had a big fascination over anything French and the south is one of my top 5 destinations. I woke up nice and early, rented a bike and cycled up the promenade to walk around the castle. I do love a good bike ride. The castle had many views overlooking the city and a beautiful waterfall at the top a hike I'm very grateful I made the effort to do. The main thing that stood out to me about Nice which I just adore was how the beach is still full of groups of people until 10pm, everyone happy, just being on that pretty pebble beach! 

Wearing, as previously mentioned.. Top, Skirt and Shoes all from Topshop. Pink bag by The Cambridge Satchel Company. 
A very British outfit.

Dreaming - Sydney

Always. Dreaming of my favourite city as per usual. The place I'm happiest to visit and saddest to leave. Here is  my photo diary from a recent trip to Sydney, one of my best trips there yet. The timing couldn't have been better as I was able to spend one of my best friends Birthday's with him. To Celebrate we went on a day trip to Gordon's Bay, such a beautiful little beach with clear blue waters. As it is situated along the Bondi to Coogee walk we decided to do 'the walk' back to Bondi. Well, that was entertaining. I have no idea how but we somehow managed to take a wrong turn, I mean the no entry sign should have been a big enough warning! After traipsing though bushes and swamps the beautiful views of Bondi beach came into sight. We then watched the sun go down whilst having dinner in one of the many cafe's situated along side the famous beach. All in all, a perfect day and a perfect example of why I'm so in love with this city. Another massive attraction to me is the Australian shopping. My style to a t. The most satisfying shopping trips I've ever had have been in this country. 

Wearing: Evil Twin checked skirt as dress from General Pants, White jelly shoes from Princess Polly and of course Wildfox twiggy sunglasses.
