Travel adventures

I’ve spent the last month travelling quite a bit, so apologies for the late post! Here are some highlights from a cheeky break to Sydney, Australia last week…

New York, New York

So sorry I have been MIA for a few weeks. I’ve been holed up in bed sick which has stopped me from being able to blog. So many people are sick at the moment with the constant change in weather, so if you’re sick and reading this then I wish you a speedy recovery! As I’ve been unable to get out of the house to take any pics, I thought I’d upload some photos of one of my favourite places in the world- New York. I’ve had a love affair with this magical place for years.

Hello yellow!

What is better than adding a bit of sunshine to your wardrobe! With chartreuse still being a major fashion trend, it is harder to find items that are yellow. Don’t fear though, I have tracked down the following items to brighten up your day!

A cheeky mid week break

A break was definitely needed after a hectic few months, so we went exploring Gippsland’s hidden treasures! Step back in time in Walhalla, an old gold mining town in central Victoria. The town gained electricity only in 1998! We also went to Warburton, where we had the most amazing passion fruit, mango and boysenberry sorbet. I really should have taken a picture of it all piled up in the waffle cone, but it was too good to stop eating!

Crush on Mulberry

My first bag was a gorgeous leather Calvin Klein satchel that was the perfect bag for brunches, dinners, shopping and work. It held such sentimental value that it’s name was Calvin- he was never put on the ground in a restaurant or the floor of my car. I held onto this bag as he slowly fell apart after many years of service. It took a friend of mine on a recent trip to New York to say ‘um, I think you need a new bag, yours is falling apart’. Since then, I have tried many bags such as the Marc Jacobs stam bag and nothing is quite like that first beauty from Calvin Klein. But… the amazing Mulberry Alexa bag helps the Calvin pains. The tan version is very practical. With it’s short handles and long strap, this bag is very versatile for work, dinners and everything in between!
I also love the Leopard print version. An expensive bag, but an investment nonetheless.
