UP NORTH WHERE IT'S GOLD

As you may have read or heard, I flew up to the Gold Coast over the weekend. It was a short though pleasant (minus my god awful unexpected fever) trip with Andrew's family, where the weather was a hundred times nicer than the dull, grey and rainy days we've had down here in Sydney. I brought my SLR along with me but managed to only snap landscape photos - sorry no outfit photos! A blogger sin! Can you ever forgive me?!... hehe I guess it was one of those moments I'd rather indulge in my surroundings and enjoy my company than painstakingly stress over taking outfit shots for "blog post sake". I however lived in leggings and knits during the time I was there, opting for comfort over style as my key approach. With our holiday house only metres away from Palm Beach, I made sure I caught the sun rising over the ocean and sneaked out early one morning. Tis' was a beautiful morning indeed.













Still been feeling a bit run down. Hopefully the remainder of this week flies by so I can relax and spend all day in bed catching up on 90210

  8. Gorgeous photos! I haven't had a chance to make it to the gold coast yet :( I can totally relate to the stress of taking photos on a trip in general! Sometimes you just want to enjoy your surroundings without the worry of taking the "perfect" shot.

  16. Oh how beautiful! I'm freezing down in Melbourne but I'm happy that you've had a lovely time in GC cutie!

    OMG LAUREN. I went to Valleygirl yesterday (don't judge me) and I saw this top that immediately made me think of you. You have to go check it out! It's a sort of dark fushia colour, made of meshy kind of fabric wide long sleeves with long fringing hanging off the sleeves and hem! A total festival top and I think you'd really like it! Had to share that gem with you....

    Also thank you for your nice comments, I was like eeeee! Working on making my blog have much better quality photographs, because people seem to like that hehe.

    I hope you feel better :( But at least you can spend a couple of days in bed! That's the best :)
