WARM, SUNNY AND A TOP OF 30

Today was - and I don't use this description lightly - a cracker of a day. Elsa woke me at the crack of dawn and as we popped outside, we were greeted by summer's warm embrace. Normally, being woken so early leaves me moaning and groaning but today I took it as a blessing - all the more hours to enjoy this spectacular day! I closed my eyes, breathed in the marvellous warm air and decided that today could be nothing other than a day of sun, sand and submerging ourselves in the coolest waters possible.

One of my favourite bays this side of the city is Redleaf Pool, a little gem that most people only learn of by word of mouth and tends not to overcrowd thanks to a lack of nearby parking spaces! The first time I laid eyes on this place was after a couple of years of living in Sydney (yes, I wish I knew about it sooner) and it fast became the only place I wanted to go when the sun was out. I'd even take my uni books down there... and use them to hold my towel in place! Let me show you around... 




Unfortunately, we couldn't take Elsa. 

But you can take all your friends and have a party on the pontoons!



































After almost enough sun, we headed for home, making a drink stop on the way. Little did I know I was about to experience the best thing since ice cream on a hot summers day. Mango frappe, you've won my heart and totally topped off this awesome day!

...What are your favourite things to see/do/eat/drink/experience in summer? Anything I should try?

  1. This looks amazing. You covered all of my favorite summer things... beaches, sunshine, friends & fruit drinks. It almost makes me sad that my summer just ended. You look STUNNING with beach wavey hair, btw :)

    1. Thanks Heather! I am going to stop straightening so much so I can get more hours out of the day! Plus it's no use when I'm going to swim in the sea anyway.
      And I think another fun part about summer is having fruity cocktails too!
