Going back to Jervis Bay

Okay! So here's the continuation of the post on Jervis Bay. I don't know if I portrayed my love for this place. If you are in Australia, or you are planning on coming you must go to Jervis Bay. You won't be disappointed rather you will see one of the jewels of this planet. The soft sand, the mysterious blue ocean and the war, welcoming community of this place is everything that makes it so beautiful and enjoyable.
As usual, I placed a photos below to let you get a sneak peek of what this place looks like. I hope my photography skills aren't too bad :)))

The view from our hotel room was mesmerising. It was literally to die for. What can I say I throughly enjoyed this place. 

While anchoring our residence on Huskisson Beach we travelled around.  During one of the days of our getaway we went to Currambene Creek, which is a museum. It is a place where you get to know about the history of Australia especially the bay itself. The Aboriginal art, the occasional kangaroos skipping by and the creek itself made it worthwhile to visit this place.

On our way back to Sydney, we stopped at a little cute town named Berry. Here, we walked around the little stores and enjoyed some coffee and delicious ice-cream. I went for salted caramel and lemon- awkward combination right? Anyway, this town is so adorable I can't even explain it. I would love to visit it again. 

After travelling a little further we stopped at Kiama. By now we were hungry. Let me be honest though, even if I wasn't hungry whenever I'm on the beachside I have to have fish 'n' chips. It a must! So we had fish 'n' chips and then continued our journey home. 

By the way, a side note, the fish 'n' chips was delicious! Thank you for reading this post I hoped you enjoyed it.

The Vogue Cafe

After countless Instagram pictures, and non-stop flow of positive reviews I just had to go to The Vogue Cafe. During the holidays my two cousins, sister and I decided to go bowling at Macquarie Centre.
Let me be honest here, when we were trying to find a place to have some snacks before anyone could say anything I dragged them to The Vogue Cafe. So before bowling we went.
If you have never heard of The Vogue Cafe (you must be outside of Sydney, because how?) brace yourself for some pictures thats gonna make you drool.

The Vogue Cafe is almost hidden within the shopping centre, level 2; around the corner from Myer near one of the car park entrances.The interior is absolutely to die for. Its almost rustic/vintage looking merged with modern. Its the perfect combination. The cafe itself contains seating both inside and outside. However,  if you go during lunch hour like we did you don't get much of a choice with seating as it was packed!

The crowd is totally understandable. The staff were very friendly and there was a good vibe in the atmosphere. Overall, it lived up to expectations and I will definitely go there again.

Jervis Bay

Recently I took a trip to Jervis Bay for a few days with my family. I literally fell in love with the place. This post is basically going to be a picture diary of what we got up to. This will be part one of two posts as I have way too many photos that I can't pick from them.
Our first stop was at Kiama where we got the opportunity to see the World's largest blow hole and it was pretty amazing! 
After that we arrived at Jervis Bay and headed to Hyams Beach to see the World's whitest sand. My photos don't do justice to this place.
The next day we went to St Georges Basin, where we had a little picnic and took a walk around the basin. We literally saw kangaroos chillin' in peoples' backyard :o
These are the things we got to experience on the first two days of our trip. Hope you enjoyed looking at the photos that I took. Second part two this post will be coming up soon.

Try new things

For people like me who wear black and white almost everyday it's hard to wear colours and patterns- especially together. I was going over to a friends for coffee and I wanted to try something new and different with my clothes and feel confident in it. I had this skirt for ages and I probably wore it once maybe twice always with a white tank in the hope to neutralise all the colour that was happening in the skirt. But this time, I wanted to go all out and have no black or white pieces. So I paired this skirt with a denim button up shirt. I must admit at first I was like nah not feeling it but my sister assured me that it wasn't as bad as I was making it out to be. I thought you know what even if it's bad I'll just wear it. I did start to feel more confident as time passed and I actually ended up liking it.
I would really like to know what you think. Do you like it? 

If not please do let me know how else I can wear this skirt. Thank you :))
P.S. The items in my combination may not be available in the stores as they were brought a while back. But just to let you know the denim shirt is from Valleygirl, the skirt is from Supre and the shoes are from Kmart.

Cinema Den

My sister and I recently went to the city and after walking miles, it was a must that we sat somewhere for a coffee. My sister spotted this little cafe. Its almost hidden in the corner of Oxford Street in Darlinghurst.

It is a very cute place. There were little flower pots and candles for decor on the tables. Inside the 'den' was  dark and rustic looking. Cinema Den is actually a Cafe Bar Art Space, meaning they do also serve alcohol, have live music, movie nights and art markets which I think is pretty awesome.
As I was there during the day these functions were not on  but I do plan to go in the evening and will let you guys know how that turns out.

The service was ok, the employees are were friendly and nice, we had a little communication problem which isn't wasn't dramatic. The service also wasn't very fast considering there was just one other table other than us and we only ordered coffee.
However, I still had a good time and I am thinking of going back.
