Oh Vivonne, Bae.

When we were in the visitor’s information centre at Kangaroo Island, I saw a wonderful sentiment that I would like to share with you today. “Kangaroo Island is not what it was nor what it will be. It is a story about change, isolation and remoteness. Natural change is never ending. Human activity influences change. Conservation is about managing the rate of change.”

Whilst the main point about conservation is importantly clear, I think its also a great reminder of why you should travel. Do it now and do it often because the places you go today will look different in ten years.

Take Vivonne Bay for example, in a survey of 10 000 beaches, it was judged one of the best beaches in Australia by University of Sydney’s marine studies centre director, Professor Andrew Short. I’m not exactly sure how they reached this conclusion but there’s something magical about those turquoise waters. That magic may disappear in the future but for now I’m just glad that I had the opportunity to see it.

Pineapple Princess Tiki

villa1I just got back from a small little getaway and now I have a tropical little post to share with you! I stayed in a lovely villa that was super close to the beach and the pool and I spent my days swimming, watching movies and eating too much. Sometimes the best holidays don’t require a passport and thousands of pictures captured on film, they’re just about disconnecting, appreciating that everywhere you walk is a palm tree, watching Nickelodeon in your bathrobe and sitting in foot spas and steam rooms all day long.

That being said, I did get a few photographs of my stay including this cute little number. I’ve been on the hunt for something in a pineapple print and I’ve been on the hunt for a kimono since last summer so when I saw this one I knew I had to have it! Kimonos are the epitome of a summer vacation because they’re perfect as a beach cover up and so easy and breezy. I like wearing mine with denim cut offs and tank tops so the bright print can be the focus of the outfit.
