Ready for summer ☀️
This weekend I invested in some new clothes, saved a bird, watched A Star Is Born (and cried my eyes out during), got a new book and tried 2 new restaurants 🤤. What are you doing this weekend?
I’ve gotten a lot of people asking what I’ve been doing and when I’ll be resurfacing on the internet 😂
Since moving to Sydney and submitting my partner visa paperwork, I’ve gotten a full time job as a travel agent, Michael and I have moved into a two bedroom sublet/dog sitting arrangement (which is why we have this little fluff ball all the time 🤩), and I’ve been settling in to this new phase in my life.
My brain has been stuffed full since starting my new job with sooo much info on travel agent things. I’ve learnt an insane amount of information super quickly, which is why I’ve been spending most of my time away from work relaxing, doing yoga, and reading fiction (I can’t fit any more info in my head, so no non-fiction 😂).
I am just now starting to feel comfortable enough to start thinking about writing and making videos again. For those of you who read my website and/or watch my videos - what kind of content do you want to see from me moving forward?
Stick with the people who pull the magic out of you not the madness 🌟
You guys are the magic! Still on cloud 9 from yesterday’s meetup in NYC! I cannot put into words how much joy it brings us when we get to connect with you!
Our friends at @littlewordsproject are strong believers in collaboration over competition amongst females and building up the #nicegirlgang community and you know I’m all about that!
Today, for every post made using the hashtag #nationalnicegirlday , they will be donating $1 to anti-bullying charities nationwide! Tag who brings out your magic and let’s spread more kindness!
Some days you eat salads and go to the gym. Other days you eat popcorn for lunch and dinner, put on your coziest sweater and cry your eyes out at A Star is Born, it’s called balance 🥗🏃🏻♀️⚖️🍿😭
Have you seen it yet?? How amazing were @ladygaga and Bradley Cooper?
Think outside, no box required 📦
Yesterday I spent the day with my mom wandering in the forest, enjoying the crisp air, the leaves on the ground, stuffing our faces at one of my favourite cafes and warming up with hot chocolate! 🍂☕️ #bestmom#perfectsunday

No one is you and that is your super power 💫
Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? Montreal has some pretty incredible ones but this one is giving my hometown a run for its money!
First of all; a huge THANK YOU for all the amazing birthday wishes!! I had a lovely day and can’t wait to celebrate it with my friends and family tomorrow.
This is one of those shots that actually wasn’t supposed to end up here, but turned out I absolutely love it! Hope you all have an amazing weekend! Tell me about your plans in the comments 🤗

Happy birthday to me! 🥂✨
Another year has passed and many beautiful memories were made. It hasn’t been all beauty and sunshine of course and I’ve disappointed myself many times this year. As a perfectionist I always expect too much of myself and set my goals way too high. Not achieving those goals leads to disappointment and makes me unhappy. So this year I’ve decided to not set any goals except for me to enjoy life, be happy and love 💖
Who’s with me?!
While I’m busy with shooting new photos I thought I’d share an old photo from St Lucia.
I used to live on this beautiful island for 6 months while doing an internship at @sandalsresorts and it was one of the best experiences of my life! One day in particular stood out, a local Airbnb host of our friend offered to take us on a tour around the island and showed us the most amazing places. One of them was where this photo was taken; the new Jerusalem mineral baths. A small 5 minute off-road walk takes you straight to the baths where natural water pours down into different hot baths. And you know what the best thing was? We were the only ones there! A true hidden gem 💫💦
Have you ever found a hidden gem while traveling? I would love to hear more of your experiences! Let me know in the comments, best comments get a shoutout!
My Tongariro Crossing photos are STILL getting reposted all over New Zealand accounts, so I figured I’d repost some of my favourites as well 🤗
The Tongariro Crossing is located about 4 hours driving South from Auckland (close to Lake Taupo!). The hike will take about 8 hours one way (that is with breaks - you’ll probably only actually hike for about 6-7 hrs). We parked at the end of the trail and got on a shuttle bus to the beginning to start our journey as the sun was rising 😱 it was a long hike but so amazing, I highly recommend trying it out if you visit NZ and love hiking!
Some tips for the Crossing:
1. Bring toilet paper! There are porta potties but not all of them have TP - bring your own to be on the safe side!
2. Bring more food and water than you think you’ll need. There are NO water stations along the trail, and even in the cold, the hike will dehydrate you more than you’d imagine! I actually forgot one of my water bottles in the car but still ended up drinking 3+ litres during the hike.
3. Go out for a big dinner and a drink after! We went out for dinner and had drinks there but we were all so tired that we went to sleep at 9pm 😂. That was the best meal & sleep of my life!
Tell me - have you ever done the Tongariro Crossing??
I guess the sunflower season is really coming to an end now.. but since I can’t say goodbye to summer yet here’s one last sunflower post!
What’s your favorite flower? And are you ready for fall? Cause I’m not 😅
A whole new world of bottomless apple tea and an endless selection of Turkish rugs💫 And the big question, which rug to bring home? Decisions, decisions..
I know I haven’t been traveling a lot lately and I’ve been posting photos from past travels. It’s been so nice being home, grounding myself and getting back into a routine but I’m excited to get back out there starting with New York in 2 weeks!
Big travels still to come, check my bio to see where else is on the 2018 itinerary! #bucketlistadventures#goalcrushing
Amsterdam, I love you! My weekend is starting early this week and it’s going to be a wonderful one ✨
Do you already have plans for the weekend?! For everybody that still needs to work another day (or the entire weekend) , good luck! 🍀
When you focus on the good, the good gets better! 💫
I just wrapped up my second ever podcast interview. I’m so excited for you guys to hear it! We spoke a lot about goal setting and stepping out of your comfort zone and into that fear of the unknown to chase your dreams!
That place of unknown can be a scary place for a lot of us (it certainly was for me)! But once you tap into that place and start actioning your goals, it’s your first step toward loving your best life!
If you’re new to goal setting, here are a few tips to get your started:
• A dream written down with a date becomes a goal
• A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan
• A plan backed by action becomes reality!
What’s one goal you’re working towards?
