SNOW AND SKI AT MT. BULLER - An Adelaidean First Timer/Beginner's Experience (Plus Mt. Gambier Stopover)

The snow was exactly how I had imagined it to be - pristine white, soft, and utterly beautiful. It was our first time to see snow and we were off on a skiing adventure. Skiing, on the other hand, was NOT how I had imagined it to be. If you're a first timer/beginner and are planning your first snow adventure at Mt. Buller, then read on for a detailed copy of our itinerary and budget breakdown.
My first snow experience!

Sugar Loaf at Hallett Cove Conservation Park

One of the best things about going around Adelaide is that you can easily feel like you have transported yourself to a whole new different world - if only for an hour. For today's post, we travel to one of Australia's best geological and archaeological sites. But don't take it from me, I'm no expert and surely can't explain how over a history of millions of years, nature took its toll and resulted into this beauty (check out official South Australia websites for more on the history). And geologists and archaeologists might be able to explain their different scientific theories and histories, but really, we cannot even begin to grasp the wonder of God's marvelous creations. How beautiful are the works of your hands, oh Lord?

McLaren Vale Getaway: Itinerary and Budget Breakdown

For our first wedding anniversary, K and I drove down south of Adelaide to McLaren Vale for a holiday. Because our anniversary fell on a weekday, the internet wasn't too helpful when I googled "what to do in McLaren Vale" since all the events were held during the weekend. But since we had already booked our stay and we would be happy exploring on our own anyway, we pushed through. So if you're looking for a guide of where to stay, what to do (on weekdays and other days), and how much you can expect to spend, read on.

Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Styler REVIEW

I won't pretend to be a beauty blogger but I couldn't resist reviewing this flat iron from Irresistible Me because it was, well, irresistible. *wink wink*
Natural, untreated, "virgin hair" curled with Irresistible Me flat iron

First of all, let me tell you about my hair. It's natural, untreated, "virgin hair". It's very black, very thick and very straight. In other words, very stubborn. Don't get me wrong, I love my hair but it definitely takes forever to style in curls and more than twice the amount of product to keep it from straightening itself out. In fact, running a hand through the curls will be enough to straighten my hair out if you don't put enough product. So if you want to know how this flat iron fared, read on!

Port Princess Dolphin Cruise

When Scoopon offered a deal for a "magical 2 hour dolphin cruise with lunch and a drink on Port River" at a very affordable price, who was I to resist? At only $49 for 4 people, it was a perfect idea for a double date.

Porcelain

I was so stoked when my Dresslink items arrived in the mail. Ever since co-ords became a trend, I've always wanted a pair with a white-and-blue print and this one reminded me of porcelain designs. I just couldn't find a set that I loved in shops. Plus, with my petite size, rompers and the like sold in Adelaide just didn't fit me right. Fortunately, I've found the perfect pair.

Perfect Beach Sunnies

When I saw this pair of sunnies on Firmoo's website, I immediately knew that I would be taking them with me to the beach. Firmoo is a global online optical store with a great selection of prescription and non-prescription glasses and they've got an awesome range of sunglasses as well. Personally, I was lusting after their aviator sunglasses so imagine how excited I was when I received my sunnies here in Australia only 1 week after I placed my order (fast shipping!).
