Faux fur coat: vintage//Jumper: H&M//Dress: Vero Moda//Boots: Office//Bag: Primark (old)//Rings: Monki and Gogo Philip//Necklace: Gogo Philip

This has been quite a quiet weekend, in preparation for my little trip- I've now purchased some snazzy hiking boots (TK Maxx) and fuchsia socks (thanks Primark), and have finally bought some insurance (I know my mum is happy about that one). I've dusted down my backpack and sleeping bag, and just have a final few items to purchase!

It's odd but until recently the trip didn't seem real- it's so easy these days to book a holiday somewhere exotic: a click of a button and you've bought flights to some far flung destination, no need for phone calls or visits to travel agents. Now suddenly it's a mere four days away, until I board a flight to a continent I've never visited before. Do stick with me whilst I'm away as I have some lovely guest posts planned from some of my fav bloggers. I'm not taking my iPhone with me so there will be no instagrammed delights featuring cute Nepalese children or impressive mountains. I'm taking my normal digital camera and then either my Fisheye or the Holga I won in Claire's giveaway. Decisions decisions (so #firstwoldproblems).

  17. Oh I just love it when you style outfits with that bag, it's so beautiful and has such a charming vintage vibe <3 xoxo Maria
    P.S: Thanks for the tips on hair! I think I should leave it the way it is (perfect for the upcoming Summer in Australia) and maybe dye it a lot darker for next winter. :)
