Sometimes you only need to go away for the weekend to feel completely rejuvenated, relaxed and refreshed and that is exactly how I felt after spending the long weekend in Maleny. This gorgeous town in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland has a very cool little village and miles of stunning views. It is the perfect place to relax and do nothing while also offering plenty to keep you busy if you want.

The botanical gardens are absolutely stunning and the views from here are breathtaking. It is really worth taking a moment to check this place out…and don’t forget to chat to the very talkative birdies at the entrance.

Views of the Glasshouse Mountains are everywhere and perfect when shared with someone special :)

We stopped for some scones at the Antiques Teahouse and this was the view. So peaceful and the scones were..OMG ..the best!


In the centre of town is this gorgeous Artisan Food Market. We stopped for coffee and chilled out for a bit. This place is young, hip and vibrant. Right up my alley, I loved it! All the food smelt amazing… It was a pity I had eaten so much for breakfast that I was too full to try anything.

Maleny has such beautiful little boutiques, from fashion to antiques to books….you would love browsing this quaint hinterland village.


This little book house was just randomly standing in the middle of the street. Ahhh, I loved it.


This was our secluded country cottage for the weekend. Perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all and the breakfasts were delicious!!! We had views of rolling hills, listened to the birds and even had a cute neighbourhood doggy visit us one morning.  The house was bordered with beautiful lavender bushes and a rose garden. So much beauty.


When was the last time you had some time away to just do nothing?

It is kind off hard t grasp the idea of ‘doing nothing’ when you are used to being so busy all the time, but I am telling you, it is worth it. Maleny is a really great place to get away, fifteen minutes from the coast in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland mountains, this beautiful hideaway will help take all your cares away.

Swell Sculpture festival @ Currumbin beach

This time every year we wander down and visit the Gold Coast Swell Sculpture festival at Currumbin Beach foreshore. If you are travelling to the Gold Coast in September this annual display of local and internation art is most definitely a must see. The sculptures light up at night and there is a revolving list of entertainers so its easy to make a day of it. Here are some of my favs…

Travel, fashion, fun and love …


Well, it HAS been a while. I have been busy, busy, busy! But it has been really pretty great for me lately and if you haven’t been following me on Twitter or Instagram, then let me fill you in.

p.s. Winston says hi

As you may or may not know I have been studying at Uni and in my final year, just three subjects to go after this semester…yipee! It has been a hard but rewarding slog; studying and working full time. Last year I retired from flying to focus my time and energy into my degree and degree related work and so far so good! I have also been writing for three magazines (seems three is my number). It has been the best experience and it is so rewarding and fullfilling to be published somewhere other than on my own blog :)

The HotelTonight party was the bomb!

So yes… as I said busy. However, it hasn’t been all work no play, I have been out and about attending a few local events and plenty of parties as well as trying some great new restaurants. It has been nice to step back and rediscover my home town after years of being up in the clouds.

trying loads of new bars, restaurants and cafes…yum!

I desperately miss travelling though and look forward to bringing you some great travel stories later this year as I am planning a fabulous trip!

hmmm. what to pack for my next adventure… ?

So for now, I must get back to my assignments, but thank you my fellow bloggers for helping break up my long days of reading news and writing. I love being entertained by your posts and definitely have needed the fashionable relief! Lately I have been browsing House of KTS, Style on the Side, A Darling Affair and Peachy Style among others because of their gorgeous curated images and witty commentary which inspire great things and make me smile :)
