Still Exploring - Gold Coast

Having only been living in Sydney for just 10 days I already had itchy feet for another adventure. I needed to make the most of this free time before work begins, right? Being extremely fortunate and having such wonderful friends here the plan had to be to go visit them in Queensland. So destination one - Gold Coast where I got to drive my friends boat and visit an Island. I really couldn't have asked for a better start to this trip and I thank everyone involved for making it such fun. This trip lifted my energy levels so high, exactly what you need when you have just started your whole life over and done this the other side of the world. 

This skirt I am wearing I absolutely adore, my exact colour pallet and on top of that it's covered in tassels. Beautiful, Australian boutiques doing it best yet again.

Island Life - Maldives part deux

A day spent on Maafushi island, wearing my latest spell designs playsuit. The current favourite of my wardrobe. I'm completely fascinated by Spell's bohemian beauty and falling more and more in love with them with every collection. Cannot wait to visit their store in the coming months when my Australian chapter begins. 

Back to Maafushi. Think palm trees, never-ending blue water, fresh coconuts, happy people, all round bliss and you will get the gist. An island where the people don't seem to have a worry in the world. Now this is my kinda place! With this atmosphere the only thing to do is RELAX, enjoying some downtime in this tropical paradise and give that tired mind a well deserved break. Even the grey clouds couldn't dampen our day. The sun still managed to shine through for us to enjoy our last day here to the full.

Am I dreaming? - Maldives

 Wearing: Bikini - Victoria's Secret 

Did I wake up in a dream this morning? I Woke up in pure paradise that's for sure. Perfectly white sand touching endless crystal clear waters. Staying on the local island of Maafushi enjoying Maldives as a traveller as apposed to the luxury way. This suited me perfectly as I love to see the local way of life. I have never in my life received such service, from the warmest welcome to giving us the ultimate Maldivian experience. Ibrahim, the lovely manager of our hotel Kaani beach really did give us a day to remember. After our morning of coconuts, palm trees and perfectly blue waters on the local beach we were then whisked away on a speed boat to what I can best describe as a real life scene from Finding Nemo. Swimming with the turtle 'duuuuuudes', admiring the many starfish before finding the fish himself - Nemo! Stepping foot on our very own island known as a sandbank was the 'cherry on top' for this outing, an experience to remember which I will always be truly grateful for. This was Maldives on a budget and I can honestly say, I wouldn't have changed a single thing.

Back Again - Sri Lanka

A last minute change I am extremely grateful for, another trip to Sri Lanka. This being my fifth visit to the tropical island but the first with my camera to fully capture the beauty. Staying back in Negombo - a place that never lets me down on the fun factor. Seafood was enjoyed at the tasty beachfront restaurant of King Coconut and followed by what other than a day on the beach. Shopping, Coconuts and English lessons with the locals are just a few of the activities we enjoyed on this day. The only question I have - Why the grey skies?

Making Memories - Mauritius

Hang on a minute… Am I really back in tropical paradise for the second time this month? Apparently so, just further south of the Indian Ocean on the Island of Mauritius. Only this trip was made a little more special as the whole experience was shared with Mama Roo. Staying at the Shandrani resort we mainly enjoyed the grounds of the hotel with it being so pretty. The colours of the waters in the Blue Bay alone have me mesmerised. Something else I just LOVE about Mauritius - the locals don't half know how to make your trip a fun one, with their super relaxed outlook on life just wanting a good time. All without a care in the world, this is my kind of place!
