The Rock Pools At Second Valley

South Australia's beaches are absolutely beautiful to say the least. Perhaps I shall make it a personal mission to visit each one. For today, let's visit an Instagram-favourite - Second Valley. It was my first time there and of course I was on the hunt for the most beautiful views. Don't you hate it when Instagrammers refuse to say where the exact location of where a photo was taken? Today, I'll show you exactly where to find these rock pools at Second Valley.

Natureby Face Masks From Nice Skin Australia [REVIEW]

Happy 2019 everyone and I hope you're having a lovely start of the year. I personally think that everyone should include taking better care of yourself as part of your annual goals. For me, this includes giving myself pamper sessions with emphasis on skin care. The importance of moisturising is not lost on me and the more I age, the more I prioritise this. It's never too early to start! Whenever I can, I try to incorporate face masks into my weekly beauty routine. So read on as I share with you my thoughts on some of Natureby's mask sheets from

North Island New Zealand: Things To Do for a 5-day Family-Friendly Itinerary (plus Budget Breakdown)

My family and I explored the North Island of New Zealand in 4-5 days. While many will argue that 5 days is way too short, that's the amount of time we had and it was enough for us. We started with a Hobbiton Movie Set tour and had a mud spa at Hells Gate. We then spent the next couple days at Skyline Rotorua, had a fun zorb ball adventure, immersed ourselves in Maori culture at Te Puia, and wondered at the Waitomo glowworms. Let's begin shall we?
Kia Ora, welcome to New Zealand.

Hells Gate, Rotorua, New Zealand - A Family Experience

The North Island of New Zealand is full of geothermal wonders. So of course you have to include a mud bath/sulphur spa on your New Zealand itinerary. For day 1 of our family tour, we started the day at the Hobbiton Movie Set then travelled 1.5 hours to get to our next stop: Hells Gate to experience a natural wonder and to indulge in some pampering. Anybody up for a mud facial? Let's tick that off the bucketlist.

Travel New Zealand: Hobbiton Movie Set Tour

For our annual sibling reunion, my family travelled to New Zealand. We made our way from the North Island to the South Island in 12 days. I know, I know, 12 days is "not enough" to enjoy the experience completely but we made it happen and it was more than enough for us. Watch out for a full itinerary breakdown coming soon. But for now, let's travel to our first stop: the Hobbiton Movie Set Tour...

The Paper Bag Pants Trend (Dresslily Review)

I can't deny it, I'm currently hooked on the paper bag pants trend. While I know that jeans are absolutely fashionable when they fit right, the autumn and winter season - where I am clad in them all the time because it's cold - is enough for me. And now that it's spring, I'm glad to be in lighter and more comfortable material. Still, it's a little bit too windy to be dressing in shorts. Here is where trousers are perfect - or more specifically, paper bag pants!
