Hola Tulum ~~

By Saturday, October 29, 2016 0

When the new year rolled around, I decided to make a vision board of things I wanted to achieve this year. Little did I know that putting the quote “Mexico is always a good idea” on it would actually help that dream come to fruition. It has been a destination in my top 5 for ...

There’s More to Moreton ~~

By Saturday, October 8, 2016 0

Long weekends are the perfect excuse to explore another corner of this vast country I live in, and so thanks to the Queen having a birthday, we headed North from the Gold Coast for an island adventure. Moreton island is the world’s third largest sand island meaning you can only get around with a 4WD ...

An Aitutaki Dream ~~

By Tuesday, June 28, 2016 0

I am incredibly blessed that my job takes me to some of the most spectacular places in the world and this trip was no exception. Aitutaki is a tiny gem amongst an archipelago of 15 islands that make up the Cook Islands and is the kind of place that makes you question reality. Also traditionally ...

A Stay at Surf Maroc ~~

By Sunday, May 29, 2016 0

After two days spent traversing through the Sahara desert and Atlas Mountain boy was I glad to smell the salty sea breeze. We arrived into the small fishing village of Taghazout late at night and after checking into our villa at Surf Maroc we plonked on our beds and fell into a deep sleep. The ...

The Silence of the Sahara ~~

By Sunday, February 21, 2016 0

The Sahara is Arabic for the “The Great Desert” and it certainly lives up to its name. Spread across a huge 3.6 million square miles, feeling completely insignificant was a common feeling throughout our stay amongst the sand dunes. It is the world’s largest hot desert and one of the harshest environments on the planet, ...

Pineapple Lump Lollie Cake ~~

By Monday, February 8, 2016 0

Whenever Waitangi Day rolls around I use it as a massive excuse to make something nostalgic that reminds me of growing up in NZ. Lollie cake is one of those things. My nana used to work in a bakery and I have fond memories of always going in with her to prepare the meringues and ...

Moroccan Madness ~~

By Monday, January 18, 2016 1

Going to a new country with no idea what to expect is the most thrilling feeling, especially one so diverse and rich in culture. Leaving all expectations behind opens you up for truly the most rewarding experiences. My best friend recently won a trip to Morocco; yes, you read that right. If not, I’ll say ...

Working in the Whitsundays ~~

By Sunday, November 8, 2015 0

This year the Cleo x Billabong range was inspired by the Pandanus trees in Byron, the tropical flowers of Bondi and the spectacular sands of Whitehaven so we thought where better to celebrate two iconic brands than in our very own backyard. The A team (consisting of the same crew I took to Bali last ...

Creamy Chocolate Cupcakes ~~

By Monday, September 21, 2015 0

This cupcake could also be named ‘Death by Chocolate’ – it is everything I love in one little morsel of goodness; spongy soft chocolate cake, Whittaker’s dark Ghana icing, m&ms and white chocolate coated Oreo cookies. I originally made these for my housemate as she needed cheering up and we all know chocolate stimulates the ...

Purple Power Salad ~~

By Wednesday, September 16, 2015 0

I stumbled across this recipe in the latest issue of Women’s Fitness magazine and just had to make it. My salads have been lacking in the creativity department as of late, and the colour of the rich purple cabbage just jumped off the page! Not to mention the almighty kale is another main ingredient. Part ...
