The city of Looooove!

... And boy do I love it!!

I'm talking about Paris of course! I was lucky enough earlier this month to spend 4 nights in this pretty city and found myself falling in love with it! We of course didnt get to see a HUGE deal of the city in only 4 days but I saw enough to know that this place is stunning!!

The highlight.... definitely riding bikes all over the city and seeing all of the sights. PLUS, dinner on the lawn under the Eiffel tower watching the light show! A-mazing!!!

See for yourself....

More news to come soon

A quick message about a great cause...

Just taking a quick break from my posts about my Europe trip to help spread the word about a charity that my friend Anna is raising money for.

The charity is called Bravehearts which is an organisation that helps raise money and awareness about child abuse which I think we can all agree that child abuse is totally unacceptable in our society.

More information about the founder and goals of Bravehearts and their White Balloon Day can be found on their website here .


Some of the services of this great foundation include providing counselling, advocacy and support to victims of child sexual assault and their non-offending family members while educating the wider community and lobbying for change.

My friend Anna is generously choosing to raise awareness and funds for this foundation by completing a half marathon run at the Sydney Blackmores Running Festival later in September this year.

Her goal is to raise $5000 and she would appreciate donations of any kind from those willing to help!

You can donate towards this cause on Anna's fundraising link here.

I think this is such a great thing that you're doing Anna, I'm very proud of you and wish you all the best on your run!!!

I hope you can all get behind this amazing cause :o)

Rome in pictures...

Over the last three days I have spent my time walking the streets of Rome taking in some sights and devouring tonnes of pizza! YUM

I have managed to snap some pictures of this gorgeous city in all its glory and history. I love this place and I have only been here for such a short amount of time.

I will be leaving Rome tomorrow morning to head to Sicily but will be back to Rome in mid-September to take in more of the major sites.

What a gorgeous place!
