It is finally Autumn, the cooler months of the year during which most of us head on vacation or a nice weekend getaway to various places whether closer to home or further away.

Where will your next vacation take you?


What essentials will you take along?

For me it is all about the most simplest of things which I take with me when I head out on vacation with my partner or group of pals to relax and rewind before heading back to reality.

To be able to create my most unforgettable travel experience I will certainly take my tanning oil to get that little bit of color … the last time it was getting towards spring my skin was so pale it was horrible! Of course I do always have my naturally derived organic cosmetics with me, created by the amazing Jess Hart called LUMA. Then it comes to making sure I have my sunglasses, no outfit is ever complete without a pair and then to finish of my essentials I tend to take my glass bottle by dropbottle, to stay hydrated throughout the day, especially as i am no real fan of plastic bottles. Last but not least I have my phone on me wherever I go, especially handy when wanting to capture those real beautiful holiday snap shots 😉

While I am all ready in taking my list of essentials, it is now only a matter of time before i book my next vacation:

Location: Daylesford, Hepburn Springs Victoria.

A new Travel Experience

Hi there,

and thank you for checking out my Blog and Posts yet again. Sorry if you’ve been frantically waiting on a new Post – it’s been crazy in my life at the moment with work commitments, and a hectic schedule for the holiday and seasonal festivities which are standing right before us….

Having been super busy now that Christmas is literally just around the corner did not stop me and my partner from heading out on another little adventure within the South East of Victoria, AU.

The trip consumed much of the day but was spent in a stunning Rainforest National Park and allowed us to have a nice and relaxing picnic!

The weather was stunning so off we headed south towards Noogee. Personally I hadn’t even heard of the name until then yet alone did I have any idea where this place was.

In addition we decided to visit the Ada Tree + read up on the history. Well it was easiest to head to Noogee then it was to find this tree with its exact location to be unknown apart from a Ada Tree 24km sign that pointed to an unsealed gravel road and literally to us on quite a ride.

Driving along we saw Log Trucks driving past and foresting| moving cut up logs from mills to the then new destination to be made into housing woods and possibly even furniture!

We saw what I believe is was a Blackish Snake slithering across the road and my thought the whole way was just not to die or get bitten because of one. Mind you I was wearing short running shorts and runners…. Walking through tense Rainforest and other Forestation was quite an experience and it was all natural!!! Quite beautiful to see what nature can do. Yes, we did manage to arrive at our Ada Tree and its age is remarkable … 400 years old and over 71m in height. Absolutely incredible!

After the visit all I managed to do was keep my heavy eyelids open until we hit the pavement 24km later before I fell asleep all the way home.

It was a great experience and I do hope if you’re ever visiting Victoria or are within the area to visit this wonderful location to experience it first hand!

Enjoy your day,





That three hour drive, through the Hills

That three hour drive, through the Hills

That three hour drive through the hills was yet again one educational journey. A journey which offered an escape from the noisy city life and into a much calmer + relaxing atmosphere.

Feeling the wind blowing through our hair, while feeling the warm Sun Rays as we are driving through The Black Spur in Victoria’s Yarra Valley Region. The beautiful array of flowers, trees and ferns made the drive through the windy section of road quite enjoyable and even more so beautiful.

Once we have headed into Mansfield, also referred to the Gateway to Mount Buller, we made a quick pit – stop to stretch our legs then headed further towards our envious location, ssshhh as We are letting you in on a partial secret.

While ultimately being on the home stretch already. Up and down, left and right through the Hills yet again [sleep deprivation can solve so many issues when you can’t stand the windy roads where your stomach starts to roll around in your tummy and you feel absolutely unwell! 😉 ]

Being on the home stretch we did indeed stop the car in the middle of the road while helping a long neck tortoise back to a dam, yes she simply rested on the road! How lucky there were no other cars at the time…once we arrived at our stunning location, it was time for a deliciour dinner and some spot lighting for animals, we saw some wombats, wallaby’s, of course some deer and a whole heap of native birds and of course I can’t forget to include our tortoise from earlier on…after all this it was just slightly past our bedtime.

The next day was spent helping with some errands at the property while then making a nice drive into Wangaratta, Victoria and paying a visit to the Browns Brothers Winery + Cellar Door in Milawa Victoria. Beautiful, prestige setting with the most incredible wines. We tried some Moscato’s, they happen to be my favorite and we got given the opportunity to taste a few wines which are super new and haven’t even hit the stores yet! How lucky are we! It was pretty special to be honest. Our favorite from the tastings was The Moscato + Savignon Blanc. The wine was vibrant and quite bright. Soo enjoyable and amazing! Even my other half who isn’t necessarily the biggest wine drinker around loved it! So a bottle came home with us 🙂

With the weather we were pretty lucky too, around the mid 30’s which allowed us an excuse for a dash to the Supermarket and “Hello Icecream… – even half price.

While the day wound up we spent time relaxing Alfresco, with a glass of wine while playing ”Fetch the Washing Peg” with the Property Owner’s Jack Russell, her name is Puppy. She must have enjoyed her playtime as the peg was bent and torn in every possible direction.

It was a great trip even though it was not long enough, but we will be back!!!

Love + Light,

Have YOU Got The Country Charm?

Have YOU Got The Country Charm?

Living in Suburbia with close proximity to the City Business District [CBD] can be clearly envisioned by anyone literally, bright Lights, loud Music, Noise, many People many of them in Suits and Business Attire, rush Hour, long and draining train Commutes, hectic Lifestyle and ‘9-5’ Office Hours.


However living in the Rural Area where the picking of Grapes, Fruits/Vegetables and the making of Wines is a daily and seasonal Occurrence. The early Mornings where waking up at 5:30am to a bunch of wild Birds including Rosellas [Australian Natives] is the most beautiful thing, where cuddles with my partner along with a nice Coffee/Hot Chocolate and Mixed Grill Breakfast are part of our Morning Routine and Trips to the Shops are about an Hour’s drive away. Where you see your Neighbours drive by in their working Utes giving a wave or toot as they go past, where the sound of the Tractor on the Paddock across the Field past the boundary line fence of the Property I am currently staying at keeps me relaxed and calm and the feeling of the Wind softly blowing through my Hair as I go out onto the back Porch to enjoy the stunning Rays of Sunshine with not a worry in my mind [coffee in hand! 😉 ]

A Place where Team-Work is essential, the Credit Card takes the Purchases at the Country Markets, Cattle Yards and the yearly Country Fairs compared to Myers, Designer Retailers and the well known Junk Food Franchises while your Overall Health is paramount and hugely important.

Where my “Business Attire consists of my favorite R.M.Williams Boots, Stockyard Jeans and R.M.Williams Shirt [of course in my favorite color you guessed it]


A Place where working on Property is not considered hard Labor but the Love of working on a Farm and making this Place a Charming Country Home. A rural Place far away from the hectic and busy City Life, a rural Setting where Forty Cattle stare at you from the other side of the Fence while Sheep and Lambs, the big variety of Chickens, a Dog and Cat are your best friends and the beginning of the day starts and ends from

‘When the Sun comes up until the Sun goes down’. #singit

Surely, living on Property is not for Everyone, but for those who cherish and enjoy this Lifestyle so be it. Personally I am a City Girl but have taken admiration to having

The Best of Both Worlds
