Salt Living Beach Decor

31 Jan A Look Inside the Serene Salt Living Store

Coolangatta is the kind of place that takes you back to more carefree times. Those days when your only concern was what flavour ice cream to buy after a bike ride with your bestie. I used to holiday there as a kid and after returning recently was please to find the same relaxed attitude and active lifestyle. In Coolangatta you’ll find many stores centered around beach living, but none compare to this gem in The Strand. Salt Living by Jacinta Bishop is a carefully curated boutique that embodies the very essence of a coastal escape. It is a must-visit in Coolangatta for getting your fix of coastal decor and taking a little bit of the salty life home with you. After moving into a bigger location I was lucky enough to photograph the space to share with you...

29 Nov The Best Etsy Christmas Gifts for Travelers

Esty has long been a go-to online marketplace for anyone seeking out handmade, unique or creative gifts. Personally I head there for travel prints and also grabbed a whole lot of decorations for my wedding from the site. When it comes to Etsy Christmas Gifts I check out items for the people in my life who have specific hobbies and interests, enter the traveler. Think back to your last holiday and you'll remember the frantic purchasing session that happens when you need tech for the plane, luggage accessories or a filing system to keep you organised.

Keepsake Intimates Sleepwear

22 Nov Stylish Sleepwear You’ll Want to Travel With

I'm the first to admit that sleepwear has long been overlooked in both my day-to-day (or night-to-night) life and even more so when I travel. Whenever I've tried to find new sleepwear I end up somewhere between daggy terry toweling robes in the department store and entangling myself in strappy lingerie. After deciding that my well-worn singlets wouldn't cut it on an overseas trip it I set out to find new brands that balance style with comfort. After all, if you're going to spend your hard-earned on plush hotel beds don't you deserve to sleep-in in style? Here are the sleepwear brands I found that are creating beautiful silhouettes in luxurious fabrics, with plenty of room to jump on the bed in...

24 Sep How to Master the Elements of Spanish Style

Now that it's spring in the southern hemisphere we finally get to embrace all of the trends that have hit the Spring/Summer runways, both from last year and those still taking place as we speak. And after seeing how the rest of the world wore them during their summer, we can focus on the trends that stood the test of time. Recently I  listed the spring trends that are practical for travel but today I thought I'd focus on one trend in particular, which is inspired completely by a travel destination. Enter Spanish style. Matadors and flamenco dancers are the inspiration behind this season's most romantic and dramatic dressing. Traditional dress is deconstructed down its vibrant, seductive and voluminous elements. Ruffled skirts are rivaled by ruffled tops that sit off the shoulder and soak up the sun. This season you will notice an influx of Spanish style in high-street stores so here's a look at where the trend evolved from and how to wear it in the season ahead...

02 Sep Useful Spring Fashion Trends for Travelling

The arrival of a new season not only marks a change in our wardrobe options but also opens up new locations and destinations for travel. In spring, outfit choices are more about soaking up the sun again and being playful with light, floaty fabrics. On the travel front, gardens and beaches open back up for business as destinations prepare for a busy summer influx. As we mark the first week of spring here in Australia I wanted to share with you my favourite pieces for making an easy transition out of winter. Longer hemlines are balanced with bare shoulders and shoes are back to baring ankles. Some spring fashion trends in particular work well for travel, striking a balance between practicality and style. Lets take a look at the pieces that do it best, without breaking the bank...
