Germany Part 2

January 14, 2016

After a week in my mother’s home town of Essen, it was time for us to travel down to the little ski town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen to chase the snow – you must be thinking oh another really long German name, but there is a bit of a story to this one. Garmisch and Partenkirchen were originally two separate towns but in 1935 Hitler decided to merge them for the fourth Winter Olympics -much to the dismay of its residents. Famed for its…

Germany Part 1

January 10, 2016

If you’ve been following me on Instagram you might have realised that I have embarked on a European holiday! A winter getaway involving snow was long overdue as was a Christmas with my parents and German grandmother, so we decided to all meet in my mother’s home town of Essen, Germany to have a European Christmas! The last time I was in Essen for Christmas was in 2005, and it snowed on Christmas day! So needless to say my expectations for this…

Volvo Blogger Drive

October 28, 2015

After my recent trip up to Kalbarri I decided another little WA road trip was in order and what better way to see what our beautiful State has to offer than in style and comfort with the Volvo V40! Thanks to Barbagallo Volvo I was fortunate enough to road test the V40 for the Volvo Blogger Drive and it was an absolute dream – needless to say there were many tears when I handed it back! Now I am no…

Discover #TheDale

September 8, 2015

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed some beautiful scenery shots with the #TheDale, a lot of people asked about these locations and now I can finally reveal them. Last weekend a group of photographers and bloggers were invited by Jarrad Seng and the City of Armadale to discover #TheDale from a different perspective. Living North of the River I had never really ventured into the City of Armadale – except to visit Araluen Botanical Park. I loved the…

Western Australia

June 8, 2015

Last week was particularly stressful, so it was very welcoming to revisit my WA Day long weekend road trip and put this blog post together. After eight years living in Perth you would expect that I would have seen much of Western Australia, but sadly being a foreigner means that most of my annual leave goes to visiting my family and friends around the world – very hard done-by, I know – and leaves little time to discover this wonderful…

Dear New York

August 11, 2014

Dear New York you stole my heart and I want it back! New York was everything everyone had told me it would be and more. Coming home and going through “the camera roll”  I realised how few photos I actually took of The City. Looking back I was probably so immersed and mesmerised by all that this incredible place had to offer, I simply chose to experience the moment rather than capturing it. And let’s be honest a photo never does “the…

Garments Vintage Berlin

July 29, 2013

I discovered Garments Vintage in Berlin thanks to a vintage boutique guide created by Jessica Stein from Tuula, and if a blogger of that calibre makes mention of a boutique without being endorsed by it, you know it has to be good! And so Garments Vintage did not disappoint at all, tucked away on Stargarder Straße 12 amongst bustling little cafes and independent stores this secondhand designer and vintage store is another beautifully merchandised and edited one I can add to…
