We made it to Singapore! After two delayed flights and no sleep for 24 hours, we finally arrived. Not sure that polypropylene thermals was the best outfit choice for arriving into a country on the equator, but somehow we managed to walk through the streets to our accomodation in the middle of the night, buckets of sweat and all. Mmmm, what a nice thought! The heat isn't the only thing we battled though - there are SNAKES! I've always taken my snakeless home country for granted, but that's gonna change for sure! We're staying with our wonderful host, Georgia, who we flatted with at University for the last three years before she moved to Singapore. Today Daniel and I explored the city, checked out the craziest shopping mall I've ever seen (there's a canal with boat rides all the way through it), and of course the museums. We also watched the famous light show (yes, Singapore puts on a giant lazer light show twice a night, every night - now that's extra!). Tonight we're going to a vegan restaurant, I'm super excited after the plane food! Kisses and sweaty hugs x
Mount Taranaki is 2518m (8261 ft), and I felt every inch of the pain - it was a serious workout, kids! We dragged ourselves out of bed at 6am for a 7:30am start, and didn't get all the way back down until 5pm. It's one of those things that is a struggle while you're doing it, but feels so good afterward (or at the top, as you can tell by my body language when after 5.5 hours of uphill, we finally reached the summit!). I wore my dad's flease jacket, it's so brightly coloured (it's obviously from the 80's!!) because it was absolutely freezing when the wind picked up. One of the sections was so slow, it took two hours on the ascent, and only 5 minutes on the descent! That was the best part - we had so much fun running down the scree. It's like skiing on gravel, woohoo! I'm exhausted now, and a bit sunburnt, so I'm ready for a long sleep! See ya later x
Hey babes! This morning (okay, let's face it, it was mid afternoon - we slept in!) we made it to the fruit & vege market. I always feel like a "real" vegan when I go to the fruit & vege market. Have I been initiated into the vegan cult yet? Kidding! I decided to get some kale because you can never be too vegan, and then some watermelon because YUM. A common misconception is that veganism is expensive, but the markets are such an inexpensive way of getting your food - so there's no excuse, kids!
Hey babes! I shot with the lovely Emma Gray again for a magazine piece that is coming out. Keep your eyes peeled for my piece in a fashion magazine very soon! Can't wait to share it with you! I wrote the piece about gorgeous designer Brooke Da Cruz's luxury debut collection that I'm wearing in these photos.
