Lux Life's February 2017.

February was another busy month here in Sydney - full of visitors! The start of the month began with an incredible meal at the Bondi Icebergs Dining Room with Sid, as he was back in Sydney for just a night before his flight back to London. Over the next few weeks Nicole and my Mum were both here, so there were plenty of fun times! And then there was the epic Google Summer Party I went to with work. It's safe to say after such a busy February, March will hopefully be a little quieter...

My One-Week South East Asia Itinerary.

It's just two months until I head to Singapore, Cambodia, and Hong Kong, so I thought I'd tell you all about my plans as things have just been firmed up a bit more! I only have eight days, so it's going to be a bit of a whirlwind tour, with most of my time being spent in Cambodia. Fingers crossed it all goes to plan and I don't miss any flights etc ;)

Rockpool Bar & Grill, Sydney.

The famous Rockpool Bar & Grill restaurant has been on my 'to-do' list for years. Neil Perry is a bit of a legend in Australia, and he has Rockpool restaurants in Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne. Famous for steak and seafood, it's basically the perfect place for two of my favourite food-types. Thankfully while Sid was in town he was up for checking it out, so we booked a table and I met him after work one Friday for our steak-feast.

My 7 Favourite Sydney Bars - February 2017.

I've been in Sydney for over two months now, and I've tested out a fair few bars since I arrived. Of course I'm likely to find 'new' favourites over the coming months and/or years, hence the 'February 2017' part of the blog post title ;) But for now, these are my firm favourites in the CBD and Inner-East area of the city, and the ones I keep going back to again and again. I live in Paddington and work in Surry Hills, so I always tend to go out in the inner-east and CBD purely because it's close by to my work and home.

15 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Antigua.

This time last year I was planning my trip to Antigua with my friend Claire. We spent ten days on the magical Caribbean island of Antigua, with a day trip to the paradise of Barbuda, a helicopter over neighbouring island Montserrat, and a close encounter with stringrays! Antigua was the very first Caribbean island I visited when I was seven years old, and I loved going back. After you guys loved my 15 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Scotland post so much, I thought I'd do another...so today I bring you the 15 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Antigua!

MoVida Next Door, Melbourne.

MoVida Next Door is one of the coolest and best restaurants in Melbourne. It's right on Hosier Lane, and they serve the most delicious authentic Spanish tapas. As we didn't have much time in Melbourne we had to be really picky about what restaurants we ate in, and after we left it too late to get a reservation at Attica and Tonka, we decided to use Sid's AMEX Concierge to get us a last-minute table at MoVida. You can walk-in, but you might have to wait a while.

Australian Open Tennis Finals 2017.

Recently I was lucky enough to get tickets to the Australian Open Finals. At the time we had no clue who would be in the finals, but we were insanely lucky that it ended up being Serena Williams vs Venus Williams, and Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal. My friend Sid from London was going to be in Australia for a coupla weeks because he was doing a bit of an East Coast tour, and with him being sports mad, we decided to just go for it and buy a VIP package deal that we found.

Luxury in 48 Hours: Melbourne, Australia.

Whether you're on a whistle-stop tour of Australia, transiting through the city, or from Australia and in Melboune for a weekend, this guide is for you. Last weekend I headed to Melbourne for the Australian Open tennis finals, and as it was my first time in Melbs, I thought I'd go all out and do some decent research for you all. Melbourne is undoubtedly Australia's coolest city, full of little laneways with hipster coffee joints, graffiti on every street, and a very European feel about it. So how do you have a luxury 48 hours in such an effortlessly cool city? Let me tell you...

A Melbourne Brunch at Om Nom.

Melbourne is famous for food and - just like the rest of Australia - brunch. While we were in Melbourne last weekend we headed to Om Nom, which was an easy 5minute walk from our hotel, the Grand Hyatt, at the Adelphi Hotel on Flinders Lane. I'd seen photos on Instagram and Pinterest of their amazing desserts, and with an extreme love of all things sweet for breakfast, I guessed they would create their sweet breakfast options just as beautifully as their desserts. I was right.

7 Travel Outtakes - What Didn't Make The Blog.

Usually every photo on my blog and Instagram is carefully curated. But today I'm taking you behind the scenes to show you some pretty hilarious outtakes from over the years. I'm one of those people who suffers from both 'resting bitch face' and 'overly expressive face', I either have one or the other on at all times. Sometimes these are caught on camera. My camera settings are always set to burst mode, so when friends are taking photos, quite often these moments get caught on camera which results in much laughter when we go through them later on. So without further ado...
