Never planned to be a vlogger, however, I was inspired to record my short trip to Melbourne last month, I thought I may put together a super short video just for fun. Melbourne was beautiful, it wasn’t easy to squeeze so many great moments into a one-minute video, there were so many beautiful places and so much yummy food in Melbourne I have experienced, which I couldn’t include in this video. It’s my first try, never done this before, I hope you enjoy it, and simply let me know weather you like it.

It was a wonderful short trip to Melbourne last week, I felt fresh and recharged. Sometimes it’s good to get away from current environment and step out of my comfort zone. I love the colour of Melbourne.

 

Shooting OOTD in Melbourne was an amazing experience, the city is busier than Brisbane. A lot more people walked pass while I was doing my photo shoot, which made it more challenging. I found that I became more confident than before, and I can do better next time for sure.

Melbourne is a colourful city, I love the street art and culture here. Just because of that, I didn’t want to blend in with colourful outfits. All my outfits are picked in black and white colour, I believe the colourful world will be more beautiful if it’s seen from a colourless world. I am in love with this one shoulder top, uneven design always attracts me. Besides, the animal printed bag is my all time favourite accessory, the watch and bangle are my new favourite babies.

Top/Skirt/Bag/Choker – Zara

Bangle – The Peach Box

Sunglasses – Sports Girl

New Caledonia is a lovely french speaking country in the South Pacific region, it might be easily overlooked by most of people while making their travel plans, I learnt about this country not long ago. After cruising for two days, I arrived in Noumea – the capital of NC on a cloudy afternoon, winter here is cool and comfortable, it’s drizzling sometimes and leave the air fresh and clean. During the several hours I spent in Noumea, I have taken the iconic yellow train and discovered this beautiful city. Overlooking the city of Noumea on the top of the mountain is absolutely breathtaking. After sunset, most of the shops are closed, except the traffic on the road, everywhere else was so peaceful.

Exploring a new city is always exciting, and I love comfortable look when I’m on vacation, such as flat shoes, simple jewellers and wind prof hairstyle😝. Been living on the sea for a week, I started falling in love with this blue and white sailor dress which I use to dislike, white sneakers are the perfect match, plus a pair of my favourite airforce sunglasses. To enrich this look, I picked a pink leather bag with tassels, it was meant to stand out as a flower for a little sailor.

It was a short “date” with Noumea, which makes me feel that I should come back again and explore more, especially the mixed culture and unique lifestyle.

au revoir

Last time I visited Florida was in wintertime, south beach was not as sunny and active as I expected during the day, instead, there was a bit bleak, windy and quiet.

However, Miami is like a single lady, she behaves herself during the day time. When the sun goes down, neon nights on, she starts dressing up, putting her make up on and step out with a different character. The night of Miami is sexy and glamorous, good vibes everywhere, which leaves you no reason to stay in. South beach is very much alive during the night time, people like to go out for gourmet and good wine, enjoy this good vibe surrounded by warm fireplace and music. Fortunate enough we got to watch a live NBA game at American Airlines Arena; I’m a big fan of Miami Heat.

Shopping is a big fun thing to do in Miami as well; my favorite shopping spot are Lincoln Rd and Collins Avenue, South beach. These two streets are close to each other, there are tons of shops around the area, I only checked half of the stores while I was there and already happy with what I’ve found, I can’t wait to go back.

Boutique hotel would be the best choice if you are on a low budget vacation, they are comfortable and stylish, you can find plenty of them at south beach. I stayed at The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club, it has everything you need for a lavish stay but on a mini scale, pool, patio, rooftop, bar, garden, library, and bistro. Used to working at a lifestyle boutique hotel, I love the artistic decoration and the unique concept.

Maxi dress is my forever love for vacation; it is easy to wear in warm weather, and helps quickly style the whole look, more importantly it is easy to pack. The material of this dress allows it to be wrinkle-free, I can just roll it and put it anywhere in my suitcase. I love the Paisley style pattern of this dress, and the build-in bra pads. I wear it go to the beach and go for brunch as well.

Miami, till next time…
