The Pretty City Of Sydney


So it's my last week in Sydney before the move to Malaysia, I am feeling all sorts of love for this beautiful city and at the same time feeling excited and ready for our new adventure.

One of my favourite things to do in Sydney is the coastal walk from Coogee to Bondi, it hosts some of the most gorgeous beaches, flora and fauna. The colours are so crisp and clear, and on a bright day is just spectacular. A few snaps from a day last week.. 

I also went to Dee Why beach for the first time and found the cutest tiles along the promenade..

It's funny, when you know you are leaving somewhere you start to think about all those things on your to do list, even though these things are on your doorstep every day.. I am just appreciating living near the ocean and having friends to meet up with before I swap them for the expat life!

Sydney is a pretty city, go out there and soak it up before summer wanders off..

I'd love to hear about what you would do if you had 1 week left in town?!

Highland Highs

Hi - Dee - Hi,

So with my time in Sydney running out I feel like I need to see everything which is impossible but I will give it a crack. I love the southern highlands and a good friend has a farm down there which I was lucky enough to spend a weekend at. It involved a lot of laughing, guess who and rides on a gator...

I feel like I could live in the country one day, surrounded by flowers and strange pretty things. I love a good country town with it's quirky shops and characters, you always find great people and it's just always a good and friendly vibe. Also as an artist there is so much to absorb and be inspired by, it would be a great place to be based and have a little studio... ah one day dreams.

Of course we had to pop into Jambaroo on Friday where I made a new friend.... then onto the farm and Kangaroo Valley where Saturday was the annual show! There were both pig and lawnmower racing to raise money and the town seemed to be having a great time! A band played classic tunes as we ate icy poles to cool down and watched the cutest little pigs running around, what a great Saturday.

Just a few shots from life in the country...

If you haven't been then a weekend away in the beautiful southern highland countryside is well worth it, escape city life and go get rural.
