Roman Holiday

Walking through Rome is virtually like walking through a museum. Its hard to walk 10 meters without stumbling upon a historic ruin. 

Don't leave without visiting
The Colosseum 
Roman Forum
Vatican City; Sistine Chapel and St. Peters Basilica
Trevi Fountain
Sistine Steps
Piazza Navona

Piazza Santa Maria delle Grazie, 2/a, 00136 Roma, Italy
Don't be put off by the cue that extends out the front door, it moves fast, and is completely worth the wait. 

Via degli Orfani, 84, 00186 Rome, Italy
This will forever be known as the cafe where i met Marc Jacobs.
My top pick for amazing coffee and an authentic atmosphere.

Lungo Tevere Armi, 22-23, Roma, Italy
A gorgeous hotel with so much charm. I wouldn't expect anything less of a hotel designed by Anna Fendi Venturini

Birthday Tea

My two cousins surprised me with a brunch date at Collins Kitchen for my birthday. 
They both know me so well, I had the most wonderful birthday thanks to them.

Garden State

Delicate botanicals were all over the runway this spring/summer - both in graphics and hair. Florals were soft and delicate with subtle surreal touches for a fresh update, this progression in the digital floral trend was definitely welcomed.

Mrs. Carter Tour, Melbourne.

I have a 'top-five-musical-artist' list, number one on that list is Beyonce. On October 22nd, I had a date with Mrs. Carter at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. Her energy was so infectious, she had everyone out of their seats. I spent two hours of that night not thinking of anything else, I got completely lost in the music, and left feeling so inspired. 

The fine print on the ticket said that "cameras, audio and video recorders may not be permitted", however I seem to be unable to enjoy anything unless i'm looking through the viewfinder of my 5D Mark III, so i decided to ignore that. I had to disassemble it and put it under my jacket which actually made me feel like I was disrespecting Beyonce, but it also made me feel like a bit of a bad-ass so i did it anyway.
