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…

A rainy day in Sydney

At some point in the beginning of December we made our way into Sydney. We decided to stay on the outskirts of the city as we’d heard that it could be difficult and expensive to park centrally and after the ease of taking a train into the centre we were glad that we had. The…

Potoroo Palace Native Animal Sanctuary

We came across Potoroo Palace (Native Animal Sanctuary) while we were on our way from Mallacoota to Narooma. James had done some research on potential pit stops along the way and found some reviews for an animal sanctuary where you could feed Kangaroos. We were in need of a break after driving for a couple…

Kangaroos in Mallacoota

One of the most scenic campsites we stayed in was in the Mallacoota National Park. This was one of the prettiest stops that we had and spending the evening watching the sun set over the lake and then waking up to the view below was absolutely brilliant. We followed our standard procedure of visiting the…
