What I’m up to..

So, it’s been yonks since I sat down and wrote a blog post just for the heck of it. It’s kind of like exercise- when you’re in the habit, easy peasy- but when you haven’t done it for a while you’d probably sing opera, naked, in your closest capital city, than take the leap and…

Exploring Fraser Island with Cool Dingo x

While pouring over maps and Pinterest boards planning our east-coast roadtrip, there was one place that Nikki and I both knew that we had to exist within for a little while. It’s hard to say what caught our eye first about Fraser Island: it might’ve been the beautiful, crystal clear freshwater lakes dotted across the…

Ethical elephant visiting in Thailand!

“After my unceremonious dumping I wandered over to a large, slow girl who seemed a bit more my pace. Mae-Boon-Sri, the Karen-Village man who spends his days with her told me, is fifty-seven years old (!!), and has had a really tough life.”

How to score a sweet Instagram collaboration opportunity or two*

Please (please) stop asking when we’re getting engaged.

My sweet boyfriend Patrick and I have been together for four years this June. We’ve managed to tick off a lot of coupley-type things in that time; living together, a quick jaunt overseas, a joint savings account, buying our first home, adopting our two pups, pretty consistent banter about who’s turn it is to put…

The Great Ocean Road(trip)

I honestly believe that every South Australian over the age of about nineteen has, at least once, uttered the words ‘I really have to do the Great Ocean Road one day’. Honestly, for a lot of my friends (and until a couple of weeks ago, myself!), that’s about where it fizzles. It all becomes a…
