NYC Date Night Midtown

NYC Date Night: Midtown Edition

It’s extremely rare that my boyfriend isn’t working on a weeknight so we made the most of it while we were in New York City. It was such a novelty to plan a date night on a Tuesday! This NYC date night isn’t super romantic – it was a pretty low-key evening exploring Midtown Manhattan, but I couldn’t have been happier. Whether it’s with someone … Continue reading NYC Date Night: Midtown Edition

Hobart Waterfront Tasmania HERO

Why visit Hobart? Falling for the capital of the Apple Isle

Lots of cities are great on paper (and in magazines and movies) and yet disappoint in person. Rome, Berlin and London spring to mind for me, but it’s different for everyone. Then there are cities that don’t warrant their own bible-sized guidebook, yet seep under your skin and wriggle their way into your heart. Hobart, the state capital of Australia’s “Apple Isle”, is one of … Continue reading Why visit Hobart? Falling for the capital of the Apple Isle

Airbnb The Loft the Dandenongs

Stay in the Dandenongs: An Dreamy AirBnB Loft & Spa

Airbnb is a poster child for the sharing economy and has shaken up the travel industry. After working for a state tourism department during university, I was on the fence about Airbnb. I was curious about the affordable, beautiful rooms and apartments available but wondered what sort of impact  they’d have on local businesses, feeling that I should be supporting people who put their heart and … Continue reading Stay in the Dandenongs: An Dreamy AirBnB Loft & Spa

Heathcote Goldfields Victoria

A Day in the Goldfields for Heathcote on Show

I strongly advise against staying out till the early hours of the morning the night before you go wine tasting. Poor life choices and dusty heads aside, my friend Liv and I still had a great day driving around the Goldfields on Saturday.

Phantom of the Opera NYC

A NYC Classic: Phantom of the Opera on Broadway

When I was in New York, seeing a Broadway show was on my list of essential NYC experiences, along with seeing a Yankees game, riding the Staten Island Ferry, eating a street hot dog and going for a paddle on the lake in Central Park. Touristy? Yes. Unforgettable? Absolutely. Where would the performing arts be without Broadway? New York City’s most famous street has become … Continue reading A NYC Classic: Phantom of the Opera on Broadway

Autumn leaves South Melbourne

Notes from a Winter Weekend in Melbourne

I had a particularly busy weekend this weekend, and despite feeling a bit like I just burned through money all weekend long it was nice to bounce from one activity to another, giving me plenty of excuses to get out of the house. One of the biggest challenges of living in Melbourne (apart from the brutal winter winds) is that there is always so much to do! … Continue reading Notes from a Winter Weekend in Melbourne
