I love this Boho inspired dress for summer, it’s such a comfortable yet chic look! This white flowy dress is perfect for those hot summer days as the fabric doesn’t stick to your body. You can’t go wrong with an off the shoulder style and those gorgeous big balloon sleeves. I incorporate this dress into my summer looks very summer – this style is everlasting and a great wardrobe staple for the warmer months.

What better way to kick off the New Year – than with a brand new fashion post for 2019! HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

It’s summer here in Sydney but that doesn’t mean you have to limit your wardrobe to dresses and skirts, you can definitely wear jeans too! There are always those in between (cooler) days when it’s not super humid, scorching hot and the weather is the perfect temp to rock a summer denim look.

I personally love wearing jeans all year round even in summer. How cute is it to wear jeans with summery style tops (my fav look)?! I love this casual, fun and feminine look for the warmer months – a dressy cami top paired with denim jeans. This style is a great day to night look and you can add different accessories to dress it up or down.

A trip to the Spanish Island of Mallorca isn’t complete without having drinks and a swim at a rooftop pool. Or watching the sun go down and enjoying gorgeous views of Palma.

If you know me well, you know that I am obsessed with Mallorca. It’s one of my favourite Mediterranean destinations for summer. I have spent a lot of time on this Island and absolutely love the vibes and lifestyle here. The Spanish know how to live and enjoy life! You have access to the best beaches, delicious local cuisine, tapas and Spanish culture all in one destination.

Here are some of my insider travel tips for Mallorca:

Favourite Beaches on the Island:

Caló des Moro – this beach is stunning and by the far the most popular in Mallorca and in Europe. The water has the most breathtaking shades of turquoise. Pure bliss.

Cala Lombards – this beach has a small stretch of white sand and the water is also beautiful here too! Beautiful shades of blue, another great spot to swim!

Cala Agulla – is a lovely spot to snorkel and it’s surrounded by mountains. Another beautiful sandy beach with crystal clear waters and lovely shades of blue.

Favourite Tapas/Eats in Palma:

La Bodeguilla, 13%, Bar España, Es Baret, Fera Palma, Gaudeix, Abaco, Vermuteria La Rosa, Rivareno Gelato and for the best sunset spot on the island make sure you go to Sa Foradada – you will see the BEST sunset of your life!

Favourite walks:

Walk around the old town, it’s beautiful and historical with gorgeous architecture. Make sure you walk along Passeig Des Born and La Ramblas.

Favourite rooftops/pool hotels:

Vienna is a beautiful city full of charm and is also known as the Imperial city. It is famous for it’s coffee houses (Viennese coffee), historical buildings, palaces, architecture and wine taverns. Every time I come to Vienna, I am in awe of the buildings and architecture, they are elaborate and spare no detail. I feel like I am walking through a scene from a fairytale – so magical.

Schönbrunn Palace is one of the most iconic sites to visit whilst in Vienna. It is also one of my favourite spots to walk around and admire the elegance of this beautiful Palace. This Baroque style Palace was the former summer residence of the Empress Sissi. An absolutely stunning and lavish Palace with over 1441 rooms. You can also take a stroll to visit the Palace park with its stunning gardens and the famous green house known as Palmenhaus Schönbrunn. A must when in Vienna.

Blush Tones

 

Blush tones are a great way to break up the dull winter shades we’re used to. This shade of blush is the perfect way to warm your winter wardrobe palette and is so flattering on all skin tones.

This gorgeous flowy blouse is a mixture of chic yet edgy with the studded detailing. Dressed up or down it will look great with whatever you want to pair it with. A beautiful feminine and elegant blouse.

Outfit details: Top – Flannel, Skirt – Seed, Boots – Rag and Bone

Los Angeles is one of my favourite cities to visit, the sun is always shining and the streets are lined with gorgeous green palm trees. With the weather being amazing for majority of the year, you can definitely soak up the California sun and chill by the pool.

I’m always excited when I visit, because LA has some of the best vegan and pressed juices places. On this recent trip I discovered some new delicious vegan places as well as revisiting some classic favourites.

Classic favourites are: Moon Juice, the best one is in Melrose Avenue. The store itself is open, bright and inviting and they have a fabulous collection of green beauty products and other cosmic juices, snacks and drinks. Another favourite is Tea by Alfred, as the name suggests it’s all about tea. There is also Kreation Juices, this place is next level cold pressed juice AMAZING! I have never seen so many healthy, creative and nutritious juices, and smoothie options in one place. They also have cafes too, their menu as well as juices are inspired by Persian cuisine (YUMMM).

New places I discovered, Beaming Smoothie Juice and Bar. This place has the best vegan cookie ice cream, full of protein and very very scrumptious. Another new favourite of mine is Erewhon Market, this place is the epitome of health and exceeded my expectations. I spent an hour alone in the kombucha and pressed juice section, there are so many options and what they don’t compromise on is quality. All the products in store are exceptional. You can find teas, food, supplements, beauty products, chocolate and other products. A must if you’re in LA.

LA has so much to offer, there are incredible fashion/lifestyle stores, the latest eco beauty, fabulous restaurants and bars. And if you’re into health and well being this is definitely the right town for you!

There’s something about polka dots that emanates a timeless, chic yet playful look. You can never go wrong with a polka dot dress. The polka dot pattern has always been one of my favourite prints.

Feeling like a Spanish señorita in Mallorca and definitely feeling the Island vibes with this gorgeous and flowing dress.  I love how this dress perfectly flows with the Island breeze of Spain.

Belgium is a historic country, often referred to as the capital of Europe. It is well known for its architecture, medieval towns, delicious chocolates, waffles, mussels and beer.

Being my first time in Belgium, I was very excited about exploring Brussels and Brugge.

Brussels is the capital of Belgium and it is a charming city full of culture and history. The centre of Brussels is where you will a lot of the sights and attractions. The main attraction is the Grand Place, located in the central square. You will admire the Guild-houses in the Flemish baroque style. I also discovered that Tin Tin (comics) actually originated from Belgium. As an art student, I was also fascinated with the Baroque and Flemish artists, so it was very exciting to be able to visit their origins.

Besides all the stunning art and architecture, Brussels is lined with numerous chocolate and bon bon shops – and waffle houses! Get ready to eat some scrumptious waffles, chocolates and of course Belgium beer.

From Brussels you can do a day trip to Brugge, it’s only one hour on the train and definitely worth the trip.

Brugge is a stunning city that looks like a fairytale illustration. The Flemish city is picturesque, quaint and can easily be explored in couple of hours. The city is often referred to as Venice of the North due to it’s canals, thus you can take a boat ride and discover more of the city from the water. Walking around the cobble streets and lanes, you will be in awe of the almshouses, the architecture and historical churches.

I had the best hot chocolate in Brugge, in one of the most oldest and historic chocolate houses – called The Old Chocolate House. You know the hot chocolate is good when locals are drinking it. There are also gourmet waffles houses where you can indulge in a variety of waffles and flavours.

I loved discovering Brussels and Brugge, such charming and interesting cities to visit. I’d recommend 1-2 days for Brussels and day trip to Brugge.

Singapore is an island off Malaysia and a melting pot of cultures. There are many neighbourhoods to visit that offer an insight to the variety of cultures that has shaped Singapore. There is Little India, Chinatown and Haji Lane. Each little neighbourhood has its own charm and unique architecture, it’s the kind of city where traditional meets modern.

The city is easy to get around in and be prepared for the heat and humidity, there are many shopping malls to peruse and you can definitely cool off with a Singapore Sling. One of the best places for traditional Singapore Slings is the Raffles Hotel, this iconic colonial building has it’s own underground city of shops. It’s definitely worth a visit.

Being a tropical country you can expect some of the most lush, green and UNESCO World heritage garden sites. Spend the day walking around the Singapore Botanic Gardens and Gardens by the Bay in Marina Sands. Marina Sands is also well known for the famous rooftop pool at Marina Bay Hotel, an infinity pool looking over Singapore, simply breathtaking.
