Here are some of my photos from Kefalonia. The place is breathtaking.

Zakynthos. . .

Hello. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Regular readers will know that I have started training to become an English teacher – needless to say the amount of uni work involved will mean quite sporadic posts in the coming months. But I’ll endeavour to post as often as humanly possible.

Here’s a selection of snaps from  my recent jaunt to Zakynthos, Greece.

We Are Handsome. . .

There swimming costumes from We Are Handsome are B E Y O N D – waaay too cool to only wear at the beach. . . if I had one I’d wear it under everything sheer, with shorts, with jeans . . endless possibilities!

Wishful Wednesday. . .

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before – but I L O A T H E Wednesdays. They don’t have the start of the week urgency of a Monday/Tuesday or the sliding into the weekend vibe of a Thursday/Friday. . . they are a massive snore. So I think I am going to try to do a regular Wishful Wednesday post. . . . 

This Wednesday, I wish I was snorkelling in the Red Sea. . .

Snow over it

Yea yea yea, it was all very pretty a couple of weeks ago  –   

My garden


My garden


. . . Now, all we are left with is the bitterly cold, grey weather – without the magical coating of snow to distract us from our shivers. Every day I vow to wear something bright, imaginative and stylish. But as soon as I take those covers off I revert back to dullness and practicality. Boo. But this morning when I woke up, instead of being pitch black outside – the sun was coming up and the sky was a glorious pinky/purple. Yay. Soon it will be time again for beach dresses and straw accessories.

Happy Australia day to all the Aussies out there.

This time three years ago I had just come back from an awesome three month trip down the East Coast of Australia. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about that time. The sense of discovery, the sense of absolute awe at the spectacular sights all around me. The sheer s c a l e of it all. I hope to feel that reckless abandon again some day.

Until then, my photos will have to do.
