Over the weekend my boyfriend and I were given the opportunity to travel to Noosa for a few nights! We stayed at the luxurious SOFITEL NOOSA PACIFIC RESORT, located in the heart of Hastings Street, Noosa heads. With so many amazing things to do, eat and explore in Noosa, I thought I’d share with you how best to spend a day in one of my favourite places to relax in Australia.
So this post was definitely meant to go live 3 weeks ago, but with the craziness that was VAMFF, an annoyingly persistent tummy parasite and a variety of campaigns I have been working on since my return (more on this soon), it just didn’t happen. And well, I think I am going to blame life too. You know, all the silly little errands that come up which must be done, like, right now – plus a few totally necessary fun things in between, like coffee dates, vino filled nights and long morning walks. But alas, here we go –
Having only just gotten back from Noosa early this week, settling back into Melbourne-freezing-cold-life has been somewhat of a struggle and as such, I plan to live vicariously through my own images for the next – say – 3 to 5 months – just until my frosty fingers have regained heat* and/or the sunshine comes back in Melbourne – whatever comes first will do.
Oh, #LA. Having already formed strong expectations for what the city may hold, given my somewhat ridiculous obsession with all things ‘reality TV’, my Instagram-feed and I, were all kinds of ready for the LA aesthetic, from the rows of palm trees, to the side-street cacti-pastel-coloured-walls-situation – but I must admit, cult-reality-TV-shows simply do not do this city justice.
Drinking mostly Iced Kona coffee’s from Island Vintage Coffee and living in mostly crinkled silk and light linen pieces, my Honolulu uniform mainly consists of silky slip dresses in burgundy and blush, RayBans, a black purse and white sneakers or tasseled holiday-inspired flats. A true big-city girl at heart, it is near impossible to totally abandon all sartorial habits, and thus the idea of prancing around in bikinis all day seemed entirely unattainable. I instead opted for lighter materials and ditched my pointy-black-heeled booties for a more holiday-appropriate shoe. In other news, I can’t stop/won’t stop tying multiple black ribbons around my neck and turning them into chokers. I fear the Island has only further fueled my obsession. I regret nothing.
As the unofficial, self-proclaimed shirt kweeeen of Instagram/life, whenever I find a new shirt brand (particularly one of the high quality, 100% silk variety), I really can’t help but get entirely around it. So, well, you can only imagine my excitement when I recently discovered the brand The Fable. The lux, newly launched shirt label offers a variety of my favourite Spring hues and patterns, at a ridiculously reasonable price, and if you’ve been following along on Instagram recently, you would probably know that I am kind of all about these apricot/blush/tonal hues at the mo (read: Blush is the new black, I repeat – BLUSH is the new BLACK), so The Fable really could not have come at a better time.
