Your Guide to Port Douglas

Getting there Located just 1 hour north of Cairns, we flew into Cairns airport and hired a car for the drive. The drive is along the coast so it is very scenic and for most of the way you are driving right along the beach.

Where to stay We stayed at Peppers Beach Club Port Douglas  which was fantastic. It is just a 5 minute walk to the beach and the main street. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a more luxurious place to stay. There are so many hotels and resorts, so you won't have any trouble finding somewhere to stay. 
What to do Four Mile Beach Four Mile Beach is the main beach in Port Douglas. It is absolutely stunning. We went for walks along the beach almost every day. The water is also beautiful and wasn't too cold, which was a plus!

Port Douglas Sunday Markets On Sunday morning, the end of Macrossan Street, near the river turns into a little market. From fresh fruit and veg to jewellery and other handmade treasures, it's definitely worth a loo…

The best thrillers of 2017

I absolutely love reading and thrillers are by far my favourite genre at the moment. I have read a lot of thrillers over the past year and I have picked out my top 5 to share with you guys.
1. The Ice Beneath HerSwedish Author, Camilla Grebe, makes her solo debut with this utterly captivating psychological thriller. Told from three different perspectives, this book had some seriously shocking twists.  A woman is found viciously murdered in the home of the very successful and controversial CEO Jesper Orre.  The murder is eerily similar to an unsolved murder that occurred 10 years ago. Could they be connected? And is Jesper the killer? The story is narrated by homicide detective Peter Lindgren, a retired criminal profiler Hanne, and a young women caught up in a romantic relationship with Jesper Owe. This book is so refreshing and different from any  thriller I have read. It is so cleverly written and I could never have guessed the ending. I recommend everyone add this to their reading l…

The best fake tans for pale skin

As I was blessed with very pale skin, I have been using fake tan for a while now. I have tried so many tans that made my skin so orange and looked awful! So I'm here to save my fellow pale readers.

Bondi Sands- Dark I'm guessing you have heard of Bondi Sands. It is a super popular tan, and for a good reason too. Their tan is super even and has a great colour. It is a green based tan, which means it doesn't go orange. Even if you are pale, I would suggest the dark colour. I used to use the light to medium tan but have found that the dark has a much nicer colour.

Le Tan- Dark or Ultra DarkI have used Le Tan products for a while and find that the 'dark' tan has the nicest colour. The lighter colours I have found tend to go a bit orange. I tried the ultra dark a while ago when it first came out and it is actually so good! Although I am very pale, it was so even and looked so natural! I definitely recommend it.

10 Melbourne cafes you must visit

Melbourne is certainly known for its breakfast and coffee culture, with almost every cafe doing all day breakfast. Which is great for all the brunch lovers out there (me!). Its no secret I absolutely love my brunch so I've put together a list of some of my favourites cafes.

High Society- Armadale  This cute little cafe in Armadale has been a favourite for a while. It serves up deliciously healthy breakfasts and lunch. The interior is super cute and the staff are always friendly. I always have trouble deciding what to get as the menu is amazing. Below is a photo of the veal tacos and the tofu with greens and smashed avo; both were definitely a hit.

Legacy Camberwell I had heard a lot of talk about this cafe and seen a lot of photos so that I decided that I had to go check it out for myself. I'm glad I did, the food was incredible. After much debate over the little somthin' somthin' and the pulled lamb salad, I went with the salad. If you haven't been here already, …

The Best Acai Bowl Recipe

Those of you who follow my instagram may know I have a slight obsession with acai bowls. They are so delicious and apparently very healthy, making it a big win win for me!

I am now going to share with you my favourite Acai Bowl recipe :)

You can add anything you want for toppings! I usually add:

Peanut Butter (always!)StrawberriesRasberries Blueberries Passionfruit Banana Chia seeds Coconut flakes Almond flakes Chocolate chips

Where to eat in Byron Bay

Going to Byron Bay and need some cafe inspiration?Stuck on ideas of where to eat in Byron Bay? Byron Bay is abundant with food choices, so it can be a bit overwhelming on where to go. I managed to fit in a lot of eating in my four day trip; so here is my guide on where to eat in Byron Bay.

Folk CafeLooking for a Vegan Cafe? Then head to Folk. Situated five minutes from town, Folk is certainly no hidden secret. Packed with locals, this cute cafe can't be missed. Although the menu was limited, the food was creative, nutritious and delicious. You definitely don't need to be vegan to enjoy this quirky cafe!

BayGer  Delicious, quick and relatively healthy burgers right in the heart of Byron Bay. A great way to refuel after the beach. Highly recommend.

Your complete guide to Byron Bay

Heading to Byron Bay? Here's what you need to do.Last week I went on my first holiday to Byron Bay; and it was incredible! I have been wanting to go to Byron Bay for a few years now and I was so excited when I was finally able to lock in a time to go. As I was only going for four nights I did lots of research before I went on where to go and what to do. For such a stunning place, with so much to do, I didn't feel like there was a whole lot of information out there. So this is my guide of what to see and do in Byron Bay.

Cape Byron Walking TrackOr as I call it; the lighthouse walk. This walk was not on my list of to-do's in Byron Bay, we simply discovered it on our morning walk, along with the rest of Byron Bay! It is super popular for a morning walk, and for a good reason. Sporting spectacular views all along the walk, if you have to do one thing whilst in Byron, this is it!

Killen FallsJust a 30 minute drive out of Byron Bay lies Killen Falls. A bit of a trek to get there, …
