"Just touched down in London Town"...

Well not "just" but I love that American Boy song by Estelle and every time I think of London, I sing that line in my head lol. anywaaaaaaay...

WE MADE IT TO LONDON...AND WE'VE BEEN HERE FOR ALMOST 3 MONTHS NOW!!!! So surreal!!! Our wifi FINALLY connected today so as our screams of joy rang out through Leyton I knew I wanted to celebrate this occasion with a post since I'm suppose to be gettin' my blogging life while here. I feel like there is SO MUCH to download from my brain right now but pictures are way prettier than a bazillion words so this is where I share my instagram life with you. I have shamefully come to London without an ACTUAL camera *gasps of horror* so have only had my gracious camera phone to capture my first few months of London life thus far. But don't worry, I have a camera on it's way and I'm so excited to get it and start snapping my little life away! ANYWAY, got your scrolling finger ready?...GO! :)

This is a WHOLE mish-mash of the last 3 months! What I've been wearing, eating, doing, seeing and just life in general! Like I said, I can't wait to get my camera and start blogging again for real! I love looking back on memories made. London is a totally a giant cup of craziness! So many ups and downs in terms of emotions, decision making and getting things done to be able to settle in a home and start working to fund this life! Stir in homesickness and the beginning of a cold Winter when it's Summer at home in Australia and already it has been a bloody wild ride! I can not even begin to know what the next 3 months will hold (besides the freezing cold) but I want those coming memories to be here on the blog! I'll leave it there for now.

Big Love xx

NYE: Aloha Hawaii x

My sister Mele and sister-friends Ruth and Stelle were lucky enough to spend New Years Eve of 2013/14 in Oahu, Hawaii! It all began with our beautiful Hawaiian friend Mary who's wedding we were heading over for, a little into the New Year. This landed us with the luck of two NYE's as we were traveling from Australia (a day behind the states) so we left on NYE, arrived in Honolulu and just like Groundhog Day...did it all again!

We were meant to spend NYE with Mary and her family but there was a change in plans once we'd arrived so we were left to out own devices for the exciting! We heard there was some awesome outdoor celebrations going down at Kakaako Beach Park on the other side of town so with a little bit of research we bought some tickets online, dolled up, downed a lil liquor and were off to greet our first Hawaiian evening and welcome in 2014!

The beach park was awesome fun and although the pictures I could rustle up do not show too much of it, was beautifully littered with: amazing food vans, park rides, lights, a variety of stages ft. DJ's and Reggae bands and scattered crowds of dancing and happy families and friends. SO MUCH FUN was had exploring and soaking in all my surroundings. For the longest time Hawaii was THE most desired destination on our list of places to travel besides NYC. Finally we were there and what a way to bring in the New Year!

It was a beautiful balmy night in the park and I wanted to keep both cool and comfy so I wore my yellow cotton cropped top from Supre paired with my floral skirt from Kmart and my Le Coq Sportif leather flats. Winning!

The post was a long time coming but during this cold of Winter, is warmly welcome. Oh how I will miss warm nights and the buzz of Summer in the air when I'm in London. 

Big Love x
