What to do, where to stay, how to get there and mostly, where to eat in Byron Bay!
After looking over my highlights from the last few months, its really been a blast! I have done a lot of cool things, eaten wayyy too much gelato & done a LOT of pilates!
There's something about meal planning which makes you feel like a proper adult who has their shit together. Like knowing what you are going to eat for dinner, IN ADVANCE. Mind blowing. But also time and money saving so win win! I am not saying I am at all perfect at meal planning but I know that when I have a busy week ahead, meal planning really does save stress and time.
I haven't done an updated favourites on here in a long time! So I thought I would sit down and have a think about the things I am currently loving! This list could probably go on for a while so I have just picked out a few beauty products, some lifestyle bits including my 'go-to' lunch recipe and my new FAV hair duo.
Hiking an older section of the Great Wall of China with Beijing Hikers was one of the best decisions I could have made! Definitely in the TOP 2 things I have EVER done!!
When I decided to go to China, apart from seeing friends, the main thing I wanted to do was hike The Great Wall Of China! Before leaving I had not much idea of how or what I would need to do this but I put all my trust in my beautiful friends and it seemed to work out for the best.
Before going to Beijing, the one thing I was slightly terrified about was the food. Why? Because everyone I have known to have gone to an Asian country has for sure gotten food poisoning of some kind. However, my friend's who I was staying with assured me I would be fine.. and they were right!
Traditional but vibrant, a mixture of the old and new, attractions, beautiful temples, hutongs, ancient palaces and so much history. Beijing really is a must visit if you go to China. Not only because its the capital city or that its right by the Great Wall but because it houses some of the most famous and iconic sights in China.
Another year, another yearly reflections post. Can you honestly believe that we’re done with 2018 already? This has been, without a doubt the quickest year I have ever experienced. It feels like 2017 was only a few months ago. But just like that, 12 months have been and gone and in the middle of my state of bewilderment and disbelief at how fast it’s gone, I’ve had time to sit down and reflect on my year and I’ll be honest, 2018 was… a year. Let’s just say I am pretty glad to see the back of it. Yes, there were some amazing things which happened in 2018 but there were also a lot of challenging times, I learnt a lot. I missed a lot of people. But, I did also successfully change my career by getting two new jobs, I started my Pilates Reformer training and I went to China!!
