THE TRAVEL EDIT - NOOSA
I want to apologise in advance as this post is very, very late. We have been setting up our new studio space which I will introduce in the next post and it has taken all our time and energy. Hopefully we are back on track.
Stay tuned for updates.
Here is our 'Travel Edit'.
At this time of year I am still very attached to sunshine and warm weather and not quite ready to let it all go, so we planned a trip to Noosa. Where the sun seems to always shine and the water in the sea is warm.
If you are looking for a quick trip away to re-boot, re-kindle, re-align, then this my friends is the answer.
This is my Noosa Edit. The must haves for a perfect trip and my little black book of contacts.
We checked in to Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas nestled in the serenity of Noosa National Park. Our view was to die for and we were amongst the birds singing and the tunes of the bush turkeys below. It was the serene space we needed. The resort prides itself on eco-conscious sustainability with solar energy and rainwater irrigation. An added bonus and a feature we loved.
World class shopping and restaurants are a short 500 metre stroll away in bustling hub of Hastings Street and Laguna Beach. With the water temperature around 24 and the sun shining, our days started and ended here.
Our Mornings consisted of long coastal walks through the National Parks working off the calories we'd consumed the day before. There are no shortage of wonderful cafe's and restaurants here and in Low Season you can walk off the street into a table
Venturing a little out of main street noosa we visited the coastal village of Peregian. Apparently this is the place that the cool kids moved to when the Noosa rents got too high. The style of shops and the village suited us more and we fell in love with this place. They have a great selection of Interiors, homeware and gift stores.
visit Pitchfork Restaurant Modern Australian using local ingredients, and they are licensed for a sneaky holiday glass of wine with lucnch
For gifts and a selection of homewares visit Watermelon Red they also do Interior Styling if you are in the market for a holiday house whilst you are there.
Meet The Romantic The His and Hers of beautiful things, styled to perfection with all your favourite brands. It's hard to leave without making a purchase.
Little did I know that one of my Sydney favourites had just opened up in the square, when I saw this little shop, I knew I had stumbled into the right part of town.
The lovely Water Tiger Global treasures and gifts, superbly styled, I want every piece in my home. The highlight of my day.

What to Wear
These are my favourite items from the trip:
The Little Tienda pieces are ready for a new adventure. They are handmade and every inch is perfection, the vibrancy, the kick-up-your-heels lust for life, the colourful tales contained within each thread. A must have for any adventure. They were my "must have" addition to the trip.
Eb & Ive
These floaty, pieces are a must have for the travel wardrobe, designed with adventure and travels in mind they are the perfect fit. The detailing is flawless. No thinking need.
