Dorrigo National Park

DSCN0820

After we left beautiful Fiji for our Australian Adventure, we embarked on a road trip from Byron Bay down to Sydney.  We made several stops along the way and I will start to share those amazing places with you over a series of posts.  One of our first destinations was to visit the Dorrigo National Park.  The Skywalk is an absolute must-visit!!  You literally walk out on a pier OVER the rainforest!  It’s incredibly high up!  I kept telling Tyler, “Don’t drop the camera!” because that thing would have exploded from a drop like that!  The views are simply mind blowing.  It feels like you can see to the other side of Australia!

From the visitor’s center, we did a hike (well more like a nice walk since the trail is really well maintained) down to Crystal Shower Falls.  It has a bridge to view the falls and a trail down to walk behind it.  It feels so weird to be behind a waterfall!  It is a really beautiful National Park and definitely worth the windy drive.  Plan a lunch or dinner in Bellingen on your way there.  It’s a small town I was really surprised how much I enjoyed visiting!  Keep your eyes peeled at night when their famous Flying Foxes take over the sky!

Sunrise Over Tokoriki

DSCN0560The sunrise from the top of Tokoriki Island was hands down one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever experienced.  The orangey-pink skies were some of my favorite colors hovering over my newest favorite place.  It’s really hard to describe the beauty.  The way up there was quite a steep hike and at 5:15 am, it’s somehow even more difficult.  I almost passed up the opportunity to see this for a little extra snooze time but I’m so happy I peeled myself out of bed!  It was just the most stunning and romantic experience!

#LookBook: Romantic Dinner in Fiji

DSCN0537As if Fiji wasn’t the hands down most romantic place ever, just add a fancy lobster dinner literally over the water!  Tokoriki Island Resort went over the top to make us feel like we were the only two people in the whole place.  With a moment like that, it required a very special outfit.  I decided to wear a jumpsuit with an open back for an understated but super sexy appeal.  I added just a single sparkly bracelet and fun (but still subtle in the taupe shade) gladiator heels.  I felt like a million bucks!  If you ever have the pleasure of visiting Tokoriki Island Resort, you MUST do the romantic  lobster dinner!  It was an absolute highlight of our visit.

Bula from Fiji

imageBula!  You hear that everywhere in Fiji.  When asked what it meant, they just replied, “It means everything!”  So we heard it coming and going and just as a joyful acknowledgment.  The people were so warm and welcoming, I felt like I was home.  If home was the most epic beach location.  I wish!

It’s hard to describe the color of the beautiful water surrounding Tokoriki Island.  It’s the most inviting blue I’ve ever come across.  It’s so toasty warm I could snorkle for hours.  And after a long snorkle, we could simply relax in the quiet of an adult only resort with a beverage and the sound of the ocean lapping at the shore.  It’s magical how beautiful Fiji has been to us.

Fiji: A View From Above

imageVisiting Fiji has always been a travel dream of mine.  I’m so excited to be able to check that one off the bucket list!  There are many ways to get from the main airport in Nadi to any of the outlying islands.  We chose helicopter because it seemed like the quickest and most fun option.  We were so lucky to be riding with another family that needed to be dropped off first at a separate island.  We felt like to got the full island tour!!

2 Weddings, 2 Weeks, 2 Continents

Garden Party Formal

Ahhhh wedding season.  The time when every weekend is packed full of love and festivities.  Personally, I love going to weddings!  Everyone is so happy and dressed in their best.  Two sets of our close friends tied the knot over a 2 week period.  We started off with the first wedding in Los Angeles, then we headed on to Australia for the second (with a little personal vaca over in Fiji).  It  feels so good to be wandering again!  I’m super excited to share some photos of our adventures with you shortly!

This photo is from the first wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.  It was ‘Garden Party Formal’ so I wore a chic Kate Spade fit and flare dress in a fun bright color.

Silly in Santa Monica

DSCN0282Those of you that know me know I have kind of a huge obsession with dinosaurs.  I mean, my favorite movie of all time is Jurassic Park!  (And if any of you know how I can be an extra in the 4th one, I’ll be forever indebted.)  So while I was visiting 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, I was super excited to see garden dinos!  I’m just getting my silly on in these shots so don’t judge.

While the boys watched football at Barney’s Beanery (an epic place to watch any sporting event), I got my shop on at some of the great boutiques in the area that I don’t have down in San Diego.  Brandy Melville and Kitson were my two favs.  I have some major wandering coming up soon so keep your eyes peeled on my social media!  (Instagram: @WanderingInHeels)
