I’m a huge fan of a staycation in your own city. There’s nothing like seeing this beautiful town from another point of view, especially when that view is at the top of the town! With only eight rooms in total, Hotel Palisade is truely one of the most unique hotels you’ll ever stay in. There’s no room service or breakfast but it does have one of the most delicious rooftop restaurants I’ve ever been to, Henry Deane. The best part is you don’t have to be a guest at the hotel to visit, I recommend the scallops and froze!
Hotel Palisade is also in prime position for all Uber Eats delivery services (which I may have dabbled in), otherwise you can just stroll down to Barangaroo 10 minutes down the road and dine at any of the restaurants or cafes there as well as tonnes of shopping!
Every single room has a stunning view and the staff are so helpful and passionate about what they do which is always a nice family to be a part of, even if for a night.
So if you’re looking at a unique Sydney hotel experience, you can’t beat Hotel Palisade. You’re right in the city but not in the CBD so it’s never noisy with sirens, cars, or foot traffic. A peaceful getaway in the heart of Sydney everyone should experience at least once.
I’m a huge fan of the mini bag, the cross body and gold detailing, add a few pearls and you’ve found a gorgeous new addition to your spring wardrobe! This little bag is such a statement piece that I don’t recommend wearing it with prints like stripes, polka dots, or florals but let it be the stand out piece of your outfit with solid colours.
So hello Spring and goodbye jackets (finally!) because I have NO TIME for you.
A little impromptu shoot I did with Wes while out at Bronte pool. So simple yet I love this series of images (if I say so myself) which I think is a good indicator that I’m doing what I love. After a series of unfortunate events with work that got and me down and down again I love that what I truely love doing is creating content and producing work I’m proud of with my team, a team of two. Wes and I. Hahahah.
In a world where everything you do has to be done because you’re paid for it it’s nice to step back and do something you’re not paid for a remember why you started in the first place, decide if you still love doing it or not. If you do, keep going!! If you don’t, find something else you’re good at and start that. It’s never too late to start a new career.
I came to visit my best friend in London right after I spent a week in the Greek islands and definitely got the London treatment of hot subway rides, unsolicited rain, double decker bus rides, flowers everywhere (even if they’re fake), lots of food and improvising with outfits after travelling with the same clothes for 5 weeks.
In this post I’m wearing the same playsuit in both outfits, one was layered under a mesh tee and a denim mini, the other under a chambray shirt around my waist ready to pop over when the temperature drops (which it did!) All the while wearing the same accessories from Colette by Colette Hayman just to show how to mix and match your wardrobe whether you’re travelling or not because you don’t need to have a lot to make cute outfits, just the perfect bag and killer accessories.
As you know I haven’t been in Sydney for any winter festivals but I’ve been loving life over on this side of the world in Europe and making it a little festival of my own! I’m fully decked out in Asos because it’s one of my favourite online destinations for festival and travel looks because it’s affordable and has so much range!
In this look running the streets of Santorini I’ve put together a cute and fruity colourful tee, a baker boy hat, statement buckle sneakers and of course, denim. Most of my readers know I’m a huge sucker for denim and Asos has a great range from their jeans to skirts and shorts. I got the skirt because it’s perfect for the summer and sooo versatile. I especially love the raw hem to make it even more casual.
So I’m sitting in a breathtakingly gorgeous villa in Lake Como with my boyfriend and his generous and amazing family… this is just going to be a quick and fun little blog post on one of my favourite outfits so far and I’ll do a separate post on what I’ve discovered and found and things to do in Lake Como so check back and let me know what you want to know!
I did a little 3 day staycation at the gorgeous boutique Primus Hotel right in the heart of the city… and it was gorgeous! Greeted with valet parking and a luxury suite which feels like the size of a small apartment, it was warm, inviting and definitely living in luxury.
These outfit photos were taken on the sun soaked rooftop which I can’t wait to come back and visit in summer because they’ll have a fully decked out bar and an amazing pool to laze about in.
Waking up to a breakfast buffet was definitely a treat as well as coming back at 5pm for a cheeky cocktail and charcuterie board in their open, spacious ground level bar. This is definitely a gorgeous place to stay if you’re looking at being right in the heart of the city!
Denim, off the shoulder, puffy sleeves, pink shearling, acne boots and the perfect pink clutch makes for one hell of an outfit for a day out in the city. My favourite details are layering fine pieces like the skinny chokers and the long necklace with added sparkle from a star studded brooch I attached to the skirt from Colette by Colette Hayman. It’s understated and really changes up a plain outfit. You can add this brooch to your hair, a jacket, a bag, a top button on a collared shirt – get creative and have fun! And thanks for reading, I trust you all had the best long weekend!
I’m a big fan of versatility and a jacket that I can wear day to night and to look completely different from the beginning of the day to the end is a jacket I can get on board with. For my lunch time stroll by the beach I wore the biker with my denim skirt, cropped tee and studded boots with the sleeves bunched up at the elbows. I transitioned this rock/ grunge look into dinner by changing into a jersey flared jumpsuit, belted it, threw on boot heels and made it hella dope by adding a dragon choker. I wore the jacket as a cape because that’s just what bloggers do. You should try it some time.
Both of these looks came from Pretty Little Thing a website which I am obsessing over right now because of how many styles they have available that are on point and affordable. So check them out for your next wardrobe haul.
