Exploring Caen in spring

Caen in spring is definitely something else! Trees come alive, flowers blossom, the sun is out and the sky is blue! Just how I like it :)

Since I finally completed my first semester at uni (YAY!!), I actually had some free time and decided to explore the city last Sunday. The weather was perfect and I spent the day as a tourist. I visited all the main sights, attractions and events. Turns out there's actually quite a lot of thing to see and do in this small town!

A year abroad in France

Bonjour à tous!

In my last blog post, I was travelling around Indonesia, and now I'm living in France. It's been a while since I've posted and the last few months have been so busy that I decided to give blogging a break for a little while. Now I feel like I'm ready to get back into it and update you guys on what's been happening!

Indonesia photo diary

Hey guys! As you probably saw in a previous post, I travelled around Indonesia for 2 weeks visiting family and friends, and of course doing a lot of sightseeing. I went to Jakarta, Medan and Bali, and exploring these three very different cities allowed me to really see what Indonesia has to offer.

Jakarta, like any capital city, was full of energy and people! Such a buzzing city with heaps to do and see. Medan is an incredibly rural (and very green) city, so it was a nice change from Jakarta. This is the city where my mother was born, so it was more about visiting family and friends here. The last stop was Bali - my favourite city :) Bali is such a beautiful place! It's full of culture, art, life, energy and of course a lot of fun, partying, and Aussies! (seriously though, there were so many Aussie tourists that it felt like I was back at home in Sydney). 

All in all, I had an amazing trip and learned so many new things about my background. It was also really interesting to see how diverse the country is - from bustling major cities to small rural villages to seaside paradise. Hope you guys enjoy the pics!

Summer skin: Vaseline Australia

Summer is around the corner and that means wearing a whole lot of shorts, singlets and of course... bikinis! We're all going to be showing quite a bit of skin in the season ahead so it's important to keep it soft, hydrated, moisturised and looking radiant.

Now I know a lot of people usually reach straight for the natural tan body moisturisers that give a bronzed look after a few applications, but I've found them to be quite orange on my skin (which is naturally very white). I also wanted a body moisturiser that I could use daily with no build-up tanning effect, but rather leave a natural glow on my skin.

So, I picked up the new Vaseline cocoa glow body moisturiser and absolutely love it. It smells heavenly and is super absorbent, which comes in handy when you're in a rush to get dressed (as I always am). It's also great value for money because just one pump of this lotion pretty much covers my whole leg - impressive! It also didn't leave any greasy texture on the skin and I could still smell it on me at the end of the day! Smooth summer skin, here I come ;)

Sequin shorts

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend :) I'm ready to tackle another busy week ahead tomorrow! But I'm neck-deep in assignments so I'm keeping this post short and sweet today. I decided to finally whip out these sequin shorts - I bought them about 6 months ago, but have never worn them (story of my life with most of the clothes in my wardrobe lol). I love the lace detailing on the hemline.. and the sequins really take the shorts up a notch - it can be easily styled down for a daytime look or perfect for a night out.. I can't wait to pair these shorts with a crop top and some heels! And yes, I'm working on my tan... just need some free time to head to the beach more..
