MY FAVORITE WIDE LEG PANTS FOR AUTUMN (OR SPRING) THIS YEAR

MY FAVORITE WIDE LEG PANTS FOR AUTUMN (OR SPRING) THIS YEAR

I'll be sporting many a wide leg slacks this autumn! While it's all about the sun for now in Oz, autumn is not too far away. Soon, I'll be packing away the shorts, t-shirts and thongs (also known as flip flops :) ) and what best to replace them with but these gorgeous wide leg slacks! These 70s inspired slacks are sticking around in many closets from when they first appeared as an alternative to skinny jeans a couple of years ago!

WHY I QUIT MY JOB

WHY I QUIT MY JOB

So this is it, the day has finally arrived!  Four weeks ago I arrived at work with a very important letter nestled in my bag. This letter marked the beginning of the end. I was nervous, and I won’t deny that I spent the entire day second guessing my decision. Was it too early? Should I wait couple more weeks? I could still back out. But deep down, I knew the time had come to jump. And jump I did! I handed in my notice at work. For the first time I will…Read more …

This is not something I take lightly. There's a plan and there are rules that must be adhered to.

A GAZILLION THINGS TO DO IN CAIRNS (OR MAYBE 8)

A list of a gazillion things to do in Cairns. OK, so maybe it's just 8, but it's still 8 fun things!  I headed up to Cairns earlier this year and spent a week in this adventure land, although at the time I had no idea how much adventure there was to be had. At the end of it, I really felt like one week was just not enough and I'm already planning my next visit.   Cairns is located in the north east coast of Queensland, and is a tourist hub thanks…Read more …
FOOD TRUCKS: MELBOURNE vs CANBERRA

FOOD TRUCKS: MELBOURNE vs CANBERRA

The battle is on starting with the Melbourne vs Canberra food trucks and the results will surprise you!  Every country indulges in it regularly: the city versus city rivalry. Sometimes, the debate extends beyond national boundaries – heard much about the 'is London or Manhattan better' argument? I have! Australia boasts it's very own with the Sydney versus Melbourne saga. This debate, my friends, is as much a national sport in this sports crazed nation as is the AFL, rugby, cricket, tennis, fishing, soccer and swimming. There are many pages on the interwebs…Read more …
