Finding love in Japan

This is a true story about me. A story about how an American guy in Japan fell for a Chinese gal in Australia, and the beautiful result of our two worlds colliding.

At the end of last year, I took a chance. I was stressed, unimpressed and tired of my routine. I’d just finished my masters degree. I’d just moved house into a new environment. So I took a chance at finding love. I flew to a small town south of Hiroshima, Japan to meet a guy I had met in Melbourne. We had spent a whirlwind short time with each other in a Melbourne, and realised that we had a strong connection. I took the leap and there in the small town of Iwakuni, in a Japan, I found everything I wanted and more – plus I got to explore Japan for a second time around. I’m a lucky gal 🙂

2017 is a year of chances. A year of love. A year of learning. Hopefully, you might read this and take a chance on love too. I promise it’s worth it. 

Japan I’ll be back in July, can’t wait to explore more of your beauty and charm with my love and my friends by my side 💘

I spent New Year’s in Bali, Indonesia this year. I’d never thought I’d be a Bali type of gal as it seems to have a reputation for being all about Aussies drinking and partying etc but honestly Bali is spectacular. Since it was my first time I didn’t really know what to expect.

Bali’s most popular locations, such as Seminyak and Kuta, were obviously crowded, dirty beaches and loud and unforgiving. It was really interesting to see that many Australian businesses were flourishing there. And there were plenty of delicious cafes and beautiful resorts dotted along the beach.

The real beauty of Bali was when I trekked up Mt. Batur, an active volcano in the island’s North East, and also explored Ubud and surrounds. The pictures tell it better than I can in words.

I cannot wait to get back to Bali and spend more time exploring the wilderness, because I know there are many beaches, waterfalls and forests awaiting the hippie nature-lover that I am!

If anyone has any cool Bali hotspots, eats or tips let me know in the comments!

Oxford St, classic telephone box, gorgeous flowers, Musee D’Orsay, Monterosso beach, vegan feed @ Max Pett (Munich), selfie with my awesome travel buddy Lauren ❤

I hope to have some new content up, but for now enjoy my Euro-spam pls.

my winter/travel/mid-week inspiration.





















This week I am inspired by knits and wool, Asia,
suitcases and wanderlust, landscapes, books, and anything vintage.

Guess what?! I’m going overseas; China is my destination! 🙂
Confirmed all the details today, and am going first to Guangzhou to see my family ♥, then to Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, and Wuxi. I was going to go to Hong Kong too (mmm shopping) but unfortunately have no time 😦 But never fear, I will still be shopping in Guangzhou. There are heaps of markets and little shops and everything is cheapcheapcheap!

Meanwhile it’s SO cold in Melbourne, I’m frozen and haven’t even left the house today.
Sorry for the hiatus again, outfit post soon I promise…

What’s inspiring you guys this week?
