If you read my post about my recent trip to Los Angeles, you’ll know that my travel buddy Kylie and I decided to squeeze in a quick trip to the East coast before heading home. I mean, if you’re already in LA, why not pop over to New York as well?
I’m one of those people who likes to take off overseas at a moments’ notice. My friend (and fellow Sagittarius) Kylie Gulliver is exactly the same. So earlier this year we found ourselves heading to the US for a whirlwind two weeks. There was sun, snow, road trips and lots of eating.
If you've lived in Melbourne, you will know that there are times when you just need to escape somewhere warmer. I should say consistently warmer, as we do get warm days in Melbourne but it's always a gamble whether it will last.
Whether you follow a paleo, keto, vegetarian or vegan diet or if, like me, you just prefer to eat nutrient-dense food, Health Freak in Perth is a must-visit. Perusing their menu and eyeing off the desserts cabinet had me feeling like a kid in a (healthy) candy store. So many options!
As the popularity of boxing is growing amongst the general public, boxing gyms are becoming ubiquitous. They are popping up on every corner here in Australia and the same thing is happening in the United States.
After spending another week up in Perth for work, I was planning on putting together a little guide on what and where I ate. But for some reason (not at all because I have a sweet tooth), my food photos consisted mainly of desserts.
Tribe Perth really is built for the modern traveller. I stayed there when I was up in Perth a couple of weeks back. With a fair bit of work to do while I was there, Tribe made the whole experience an absolute breeze.
I had never heard of Satellite Island a few weeks ago. Probably because it's an isolated, private island located off the coast of Bruny Island, which is off the coast of mainland Tasmania (so it's an island off an island off an island). When I found out that I was going to be doing an outdoorsy photoshoot there with Lululemon, I googled it and got VERY excited.
Have you been to Ballarat? I think my last trip there was in primary school on a visit to Sovereign Hill to dress up in 1850s attire and pretend to be an early settler during the Victorian gold rush. Great times (I love playing dress-ups). A couple of weeks ago, I returned to Ballarat (in a different capacity) for a weekend away to celebrate the launch of Broadsheet's 'Restaurant Ballarat'.
I recently spent a long weekend in Hobart, Tasmania (or Tassie, as we say in Australia). It was my first time there and I really didn't know what to expect. Some people say it's a bit dreary, but if you like fresh air, good food and stunning nature, it's heaven.
Earlier this year, I travelled to Thailand to spend a month at Por Promin Muay Thai Camp in Hua Hin. It was one of the best experiences in my life so far. Tough? Yes. Rewarding? Incredibly. Not just because of what I learnt (and the increase in my fitness); I also met some great people.
