Winter is well and truly here in Queenstown and the snow has started settling. Perfect timing for the Mountain opening in three weeks for skiing and snowboarding. Inspired by the icy weather, here are some deliciously warm coat ideas from furry to classic camel.

Enjoy xo

Cambodian island sunsets

Hi lovers!

If you love a beautiful beach, check out Long Beach on Koh Rong in Cambodia.

The pearly white sand and stunning sunsets are well worth the hot bus ride fro Phnom Penh. More about Koh Rong next time, but the first photo is a teaser of the island’s beauty.

Meeting new Freelance Writers

They’re out there! Co-working spaces are the best ways to find them.

Now I’m back home in the mountains of Queenstown after two months away traveling and writing. New clients, chats with fellow freelancers, amazing places and hard work, it’s been an amazing trip!

Last day in the Whitsunday Islands

Today is my last day on the stunning tropical paradise that is Hamilton Island. I’ve been writing from here for 3 weeks, and am terribly sad to say goodbye. I was also incredibly lucky to spend a week with 5 of my most precious friends for our 10 year Friendaversary.

Thank you so much to Qualia, voted world’s best resort, for hosting us for canapés at the Long Pavillion. Qualia’s modern Australian architecture, exquisite canapés and cocktails and incredible customer service proved this impeccable resort absolutely lived up to its reputation.

Enjoy some delicious photos from the island, and some gorgeous fashion snaps too.

Now to Bangkok to meet more amazing people to write about…

New face of Calvin Klein = Kendall Jenner

 

Happy Friday lovers!!

FASH NEWS: Kendall Jenner is the new face of Calvin Klein, Rihanna is now obsessed with all-pink outfits, and Amal Clooney is so smart and beautiful she can pull off a furry crop top for a lunch date.

Plus! Totally loving Winnie Harlow, the winner of America’s Next Top Model with vitiligo who has scored Diesel and Desigual campaigns.

WRITING NEWS:

Have you ever been a Chinese gangster? If you have you’ve probably made fake anti malaria pills that have helped create a super drug-resistant malaria…uh oh:

A casual thigh-high

Hi Lovers!

After leaving Bangkok I headed to Grace town in Western Australia to work, surf and go to a fun little music festival. I’ve just made it back to NZ in time for meetings in Auckland on Monday.

Gotta love travel!

Would you rock the skirt with the thigh-high slit in this post?

i want this crown

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a fun weekend. To everyone in Melbourne who went to the croquet club event in the CBD, I hope it was amazing!

I’m still working from Bangkok this week, then off to Margaret River in WA for some work by the surf. Can’t wait!

Jetsetting to the max! Enjoy these beautiful photos, and I hope someone purchases the crown in the last pic.
