Finally seeing Hamilton!

After well over a years wait, the time finally arrived for my friends and I to make our way to London to see Hamilton. I cannot express how excited I was for this show, I waited for it (if you know you know) and have been absolutely obsessed with the soundtrack, listening to it on…

Wedding prep purchases

On the 24th March, I was the Maid of Honour at one of my oldest friends wedding. It goes without saying that I was excited to be a part of her day and since it was a special occasion, I thought that I would freshen and upgrade some of my makeup collection. (As well as…

Easy Sticky Mango Rice

Last Wednesday (21st) was officially our third month back in the UK. This week I’ve spent some time reflecting on our trip (pining to return) and trying to remember some of the amazing stuff that we were able to eat as we went along on our merry way. Some of my most vivid food memories…

March Birch Box

I have to admit, I was particularly excited for this month’s Birch Box because I had resubscribed purely in anticipation for the Benefit BADgal Bang mascara that was to be included. Safe to say, the mascara did not disappoint but the rest of the box turned out to be amazing, making this March’s edition my…

Last Destination: Bali

On the 15th December, we drove from Burnett Heads to Brisbane airport so that we could fly to the final destination of our amazing backpacking adventure – Bali. Bali was one of the countries that I felt most excited to visit, I’d been reading about how beautiful the country was and had planned to squeeze…

February Favourites

We’re into the first full week of march already. How fast is this year passing already?! I thought that now would be a good time to reflect on some of my February faves which are just some of the items that I have started using or enjoying on a daily basis in the last month….

Snorkelling on The Great Barrier Reef.

For our last day in in Australia, James and I decided that we would end our time in Australia with a bang by snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. We had been told that you could only see the Great Barrier Reef if you travelled to Cairns but a bit of Googling proved this to…

Brunch at the Early Bird Cafe

After a week of work I felt like getting out, eating some good food and enjoying some fresh air. James and I decided on a breakfast date at the Early Bird Cafe which I have wanted to try for ages. Based on Woodville Road in Cathays, I was pleasantly surprised to find that parking nearby…

Walking around Brisbane

Brisbane was our last but one stop on our 3 week road trip around Australia. We weren’t expecting much because we’d heard some negative things from friends who had previously visited; we were however, pleasantly surprised! We were treated to our first gorgeous weather in a major Australian City which held up for the whole…

February Beauty Buys

The last week of February has been pretty rough for me health wise. I caught one of the nastiest head colds that I have ever experienced (which I’m still experiencing the impact of), once it started to ease of, I caught my first ever bout of conjunctivitis. As you can imagine, I was pretty gross….

A Day in Byron Bay

One of the must do stops between Sydney and Brisbane is Byron Bay. The area is absolutely beautiful and I love the laid back vibe that is present throughout the entire town. Everything in the town is really relaxed and there seems to be a big focus on independent local shops and cafes. The town…

First BirchBox of 2018

This month BirchBox announced that they would be giving out a fun sized Benefit BADgal Bang mascara with all of their March boxes. Being the sucker for marketing that I am, I was soon clicking on to the BirchBox website and signing up for the February box as well. The February box focuses on makeup…
