In typical me style, we are off to Vietnam in just 2 days time and are still yet to book a something…anything…For our 10 day trip. If you know me, I’m quite confident that this will not surprise you. After a little last minute stress and a quick flick through the pages of air b n b, my anxiety has been put at bay. The accommodation on offer, served up by local Vietnamese hosts is next to nothing I’ve seen before. Team this with my love of Caffeine and Rice Paper Rolls and I couldn’t be more excited to jump on a plane and hit the streets of Vietnam later this week! With the launch of our new ‘Bon Voyage’ travel collection later this month, It felt only natural to get you Chica’s in the mood for a little travel adventure for yourself. Check out these super cute Air B n B’s located throughout Vietnam that I have found on my research - Did I mention they are all under $100?
I'm constantly asked by my pals where they should stay and what that should do on their visit to Bali. And while that guide would take a few days (or weeks!) to write, I'm starting with here with my personal top 5 places to stay on the Bukit Penninsula - one of my absolute favourite areas of Bali.
We’ve taken you through our jewellery design process in our ‘Behind The Scenes Part 1’ blog post we wrote a couple of months back (You can find this here to refresh your memory) and now it’s time to introduce you to the dirty work – quite literally! When the pretty designs are all signed off, this is where the real stuff starts happening…
One lazy Sunday afternoon (let's be honest, it was probably more a mid-Monday morning I-don't want-to-start-the-week situation) we were 27 profiles deep in the instagram bubble and we discovered this beautiful soul. Ellie Gorgeous Hayden.
With her endless Summer-loving snaps, endless travel and carefree attitude oozing through every photo in her feed, we knew she was one of us. Next minute, we're chatting all things island life from tropical afternoons on Hamilton Island to working the seasons on Rottnest Island - we found our match!
With a menu that is entirely made form Organic locally sourced produce, a meal or two from Café Organic is guaranteed to get you back feeling Healthy and clean in no time at all!
Serving up the most outrageously epic looking food, Café Organic is definitely one of the most 'instagrammed' cafes roaming Bali. If you’ve seen a fancy fruit salad served up in a Pineapple with a dragon fruit smoothie next to it while perusing the ‘gram, there’s a high chance they were dining here!
YEW! Have you seen the latest collab? We’re so excited to launch these beauties, not only are they practical but extremely good looking! Havn’’t seen them? Click HEREto check out the full collection and below, we’ll chat a few things Gemma!
With Mother’s Day just around the corner for our Australian and US pals, we have wrapped up our top 7 gift ideas to spoil the ladies in your life this year… (Best thing about this list – they all ship internationally!)
Wait, I'm pretty sure Summer on really just got into 3rd gear and now it's day-light saving already!? Yeah, the pain is real and the weather don't lie. Autumn is settling in hear in the Southern Hemisphere and I don't know about you....but I am frantically trawling expedia for flights to some place warm and getting inspiration for rad as places to stay on Airbnb.
The pain is made slightly worse as some very good pals are currently honeymooning their way across the Yucatan Penninsula in Mexico. Their sweaty bods lounging around poolside with cocktails in hand and epic beach views in the background is not doing me any favours for getting work done. Instead, I am busy manifesting how I can make our next photoshoot in Mexico happen! And, while I was at it, I came across these super dreamy beach-side Airbnb hotspots (after all, we have to sleep somewhere beautiful to get the shoot done right!)
Dream away with me & pretend you're booking a night or two here....which place would you pick?
I think it’s pretty obvious that I am partial to a little sunshine, long beach days & balmy ocean waters. I often find myself deep in a myriad of online travel blogs looking for the next tropical destination to discover. What I had missed in all this research was one of the best gems in my very own current backyard – Magnetic Island!
While I have spent my fair share of time in the Whitsunday islands, Magnetic Island had never been highly discussed as a must visit location. Not to worry, as on a recent work trip to Townsville, it was only a hop skip & a 40 minute ferry ride away and I was on route to what would become, one of the most idyllic pieces of land I have ever discovered in all my tropical researching. (Huge call I know!)
So, I booked a flight back to my favourite island paradise this week and guess what the first thing that came into my head was? FOOD! That's right, as much as I love the beaches, catching up with my beautiful suppliers, driving my scooter through the rice paddies and watching the sunset with my best pal who lives up there...it is always the food that get's me. (Durrr, when doesn't food get me?!)
