#10yearchallenge Swipe to see some fantastic pink hair and some less-than-fantastic eyeliner 😂 Today’s my 28th birthday, so it’s been exactly 10 years since I became an adult. If you want to check out the link in my bio, I wrote a little letter to my 18-year-old self ✨

I’m halfway through #veganuary and it’s going well so far. Since I already eat a lot of plant-based meals it hasn’t been difficult for the most part (it’s definitely easy with food as good as this #veganpho from @sisterofsoul_stk_rich), but something I’ve noticed is that there are a lot of meals that I previously would’ve added animal products to—cheese on enchiladas, an egg on veggie hash—and I actually don’t miss the additions. I don’t think I’ll continue to maintain a 100% vegan diet past this month because I’m comfortable with the amount of animal products I consume regularly, but it will definitely make me more mindful of what I actually need or don’t need to add to otherwise-plant-based meals. • • • #vegan #veganeats #vegetarian #veg #veganeatsmelbourne #melbournevegan #melbourneveganeats #plantbased #eatyourveggies #pho #veganfood #veganfooporn #eeeeeats #melbourne #melbourneeats #yum #foodporn

Yesterday we went down to Brighton beach to see the famous bathing boxes. Their colourful exteriors were very cool in themselves, but I think I enjoyed the people watching even more. It was lovely to watch folks taking each other’s photos, getting their photos taken with family and friends, and sharing intimate moments on the busy beach. • • • #australia #visitvictoria #seeaustralia #discoveraustralia #visitaustralia #victoria #brighton #brightonbeach #exploringaustralia #brightonbeachbathingboxes #melbourneiloveyou #visitmelbourne #ig_australia #glt #gltlove #girlslovetravel #tarmarphotochallenge #melbonpix #peoplewatching #people #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #beach #summer

Still feeling so silly about not bringing enough spare camera batteries on this trip a few months ago. Looking forward to going back to Pukaki and Tekapo someday to take more photos 📸 • • #newzealand #mountcook #aoraki #aorakimountcook #kiwipics #ig_newzealand #lakepukaki #mountainrange #purenewzealand #newzealandfinds #newzealandguide #glt #gltlove #girlslovetravel #nature #travelnewzealand #instanature #mountain #lake #mountains #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #nzmustdo #destinationnz #optoutside #bluesky #reflection

A grey and cloudy morning made for perfect running weather. Did a long run of 17km. Then the sun came out and it got hot again—highs of 43C tomorrow, already dreading it. • • • #australia #running #run #melbourne #river #maribyrnongrivertrail #melbournelife #oz #getfit #marathontraining #workout #melbourneiloveyou #cloudyday #runner #fitness #runner #girlswhorun #morningrun

Okay, the holidays are over so it’s time to buckle down on my job search; wish me luck! In other news, I wrote a very important blog post yesterday about setting my intentions for the new year. The link in my bio if you fancy having a read 😌 • • • #australia #royalbotanicgardensvic #flower #visitmelbourne #visitvictoria #melbourne #flowers #flowerstagram #melbournelife #oz #australiaguide #glt #gltlove #girlslovetravel #travelaustralia #melbourneiloveyou #bloom #botanicgarden #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #garden #instanature #nature #melbournegardens

Between the hot weather, the fact that it was just me and Steve, and the decision for us to buy tickets for a bunch of gigs next year rather than exchanging gifts, yesterday didn’t feel very Christmassy, but we still had a great day. We decided to take advantage of the smaller crowds in the city centre to check out some of Melbourne’s famous street art. • • • #australia #visitvictoria #seeaustralia #discoveraustralia #visitaustralia #victoria #melbournestreetart #laneways #exploringaustralia #girl #melbourneiloveyou #visitmelbourne #ig_australia #glt #gltlove #girlslovetravel #rainbow #melbonpix #art #streetart #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #me

I love seeing everyone’s #bestnine2018 but I’ve also noticed a lot of photographers posting their personal best nine—the photos they’re most proud of, whether they were the most popular on social media or not. 📸 Photography is something I really worked hard on this year, so on my blog I’m sharing my nine favourite photos I took in 2018. Some I posted on insta, some not, but you can check out the link in my bio to see them all ☺️ And of course here’s my Instagram #2018 #bestnine ✨ • • • #newzealand #kiwipics #ig_newzealand #purenewzealand #newzealandfinds #newzealandguide #glt #gltlove #girlslovetravel #travelnewzealand #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #nzmustdo #destinationnz

On my blog today (link in bio): the Milford Track is one of New Zealand’s Great Walks and has been called “the finest walk in the world.” Some Dos and Don’ts for this 53.5km magical trek through forests, past waterfalls, across swing bridges, and over mountains in the stunning Fiordland National Park. • • • #newzealand #milfordtrack #mountains #greatwalks #kiwipics #ig_newzealand #mist #instanature #purenewzealand #newzealandfinds #newzealandguide #glt #gltlove #girlslovetravel #fiordland #travelnewzealand #fiordlandnationalpak #hiking #girlswhotravel #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #nzmustdo #destinationnz #nature #optoutside #instanature #river
