Braidwood


We went on another drive to Braidwood on Saturday to get sausage rolls! No one can resist going to the bakery if they're driving through Braidwood ;-)

I'm wearing my new acid wash jeans (I love the zippers at the bottom!) and some old favourites. I hope everyone had an awesome weekend!

I was carrying this little koala of a backpack around last week to improve my cute factor! Do you like him?

weekend at the Gold Coast

 (Thrifted waffle jumper and satchel, Mink Pink shorts and Marc Jacobs kitten flats)

Taking a little walk after stuffing my face with Ribs and Rump and Max Brenner at the Gold Coast! It was so nice to get away for the weekend and see a couple of friends we hadn't seen in a while.

As for le outfit, do you like my little kitten flats? I'm really trying to simplify and focus more on buying fewer, more quality things for my wardrobe recently. I've been reading Small Notebook all night which has been inspiring me, I hope you like it too!

this week

This week has been about having fun, shopping, going bowling, watching movies, and staying home sick in bed. I've been home sick for three days now, and for me that is crazy. Did you know that in high school I didn't take a single sick day!? But I will admit it's been nice to relax at home and have a lot of naps! I'm heading to the Gold Coast tonight and I'm hoping I'll start to feel better once I see the sun. What are your plans for the weekend?

all yellow




It's just starting to warm up here in Canberra, so I'm hoping Winter is totally over, yes? No? Hmmmm.

Anyway, one can always start dreaming about Summer with bright accessories! I just love highlighter yellow so much, so I thought I'd share some of my favourite pieces with you.

I got the wetsuit pencil case clutch for only 10 Euro in H&M in Crete, and the wedges and sandals are from ASOS. They also have some some matching dresses if you wanted to be extra visible and what not...

What's your favourite colour to wear for Summer (or to cheer you up in Winter)?

Thank you to ASOS for sponsoring this post.

Athens


We only spent a couple of nights in Athens, but managed to squeeze in a trip to the Acropolis while we were there. I would definitely recommend going in the afternoon,the lines looked like they were at least an hour long in the morning!

Elefonisi


Elephoisi is this amazing beach in Crete that has pink sand! Ok so it's not like totally pink but there are pinkish patches that are created when the coral breaks down, which is pretty cool regardless. And aside from that, it's just a freaking beautiful place with heaps of banana lounges and thatched unbrellas. I wish I could have stayed there for a week!

On another note, check out my friend Nina's #renamingmypolish hashtag on Instagram. All you have to do is take a photo with something that matches your nails, like my "snorkel" example above. And I'm heatherlans on Instagram if you want to see more pictures of feet and stuff ;-)

road trip around Crete



We took a little day trip around Crete to an amazing beach called Elefonisi. Along the way we stopped at this way-cool cave and played with this adorable, rascally little kitty!

Chania


Chania is a cute town on the island of Crete. It's the first place we went that felt just like a normal European city, and it was fun to watch people going about their lives.

We stayed in a fun little room that had one bed up in a loft, and the family that owned the hotel gave us heaps of info on the best places to go, and made us the most extensive and delicious breakfasts every morning. They would offer us bread, cereal, yogurt, bacon and eggs, tea, coffee and hot chocolate, but then on top of our order they would bring us Nutella and banana crepes, pastries, bruschetta and fruit too! We learned pretty early to not fill up on bread, and then we hardly ever felt hungry for lunch!

Santorini




Santorini had the most incredible sunsets, and we had the best time there hanging out in the pool, eating delicious food and looking around the little shops. These donkeys were absolutely terrifying though. I swear I almost got stampeded like three times by them!
