Family Weekend Getaway to Inverloch – Photo Diary

Hi Everyone!

This blog post includes photos from my weekend getaway to Inverloch. During the Labour Day long weekend I was fortunate enough to go away for a few days to a holiday house with my amazing family.  Inverloch is a seaside town located in Victoria. As it is on the edge, you can see spectacular views from everywhere you go. Those few days away were a much needed relaxation period away from many things such as university and social media. You realise how attached you are to technology and social media once you go to a place that does not have cellular reception.

This holiday was an amazing chance to spend time with my family. We spent a lot of timefishing and, surprisingly enough, I was much better at it than I expected. I caught three whiting fish! My brother, dad and I enjoyed fishing so much the day before that we woke up at 6am to go fishing again. Much to our advantage, we caught over 10 fish over the two days.

aaaaaaThese small towns have quirky and unique shops that have an amazing display of carefully thought out items. I have taken photos from one shop that was truly my favourite. They used science lab equipment to create beautiful home decor. There were beakers used as candles, flasks for pot plants and test tubes for flowers. It such a clever idea that would add a different feel to one’s house.  DSC_4005DSC_4009DSC_4006DSC_4008

While I was taking photos for my blog, a man stopped me to ask why I was taking the photos. I informed him that it was for my blog, he handed me a soap as a present. This man’s kind gesture touched my heart!

While we were away there were events in the town center that were quite entertaining. There were markets and parades which was an opportunity for the town center to be blocked off. The market was a great chance for exquisite sellers to showcase their amazing creations such as soaps, jewellery, candles and much, much more.

 My parents really wanted to go somewhere that had fresh organic produce. I had my doubts because we were located right next to the beach. But with the help of Google, I found a farm that sells organic produce and has a cafe as well. Unfortunately, we went in the late afternoon which meant that most of the produce had run out.

Weekend Getaway to Rye – Photo Diary

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the inconsistency in my posts in the past week. I have been very busy with training for a volunteer position and went on a weekend getaway with my friends to the beach side. I am fortunate enough to have this opportunity to go away for a few days to a holiday house that we booked.  Our house was located at Rye in Mornington Peninsula. It was definitely very relaxing and it felt good to get away from reality for a couple of days. Our house was very big with 5 bedrooms, a tennis court and even a swimming pool. Although the house was not clean, we all tried to make do with what we had, but it was very hard. It was possibly the worst house I’ve been to in terms of cleanliness. Since getting back from the holiday house I have discovered numerous mosquito bites everywhere. I am so annoyed because I can’t stop scratching! On a positive note, as it is Summer in Australia the weather was spectacular! The beach was beautiful, the water was crystal clear and shallow.

My outfits over the past couple days were very light and simple. I made sure that when I was packing, I included clothing that did not require ironing and was versatile.  Shirts are a girls best friend during summer. They are so thin and perfect for a Hijabi (someone who wears a hijab). During Summer, I find it difficult to wear socks so I was basically living in my sandals. Likewise, I try not to carry around a big bag when I am going to do quite a bit of walking. I generally carried around my purse that I mentioned in my Khaki & Floral – OOTD post. It is so light weight and I can pack so much inside. Similarly, I was always wearing sunglasses outside. If you are anything like me, you will start crying every time you look up to the sun if you do not have sunglasses on.

During this holiday I have understood a lot about myself and the strengthening of friendships. Living in the same house with friends will either make you or break you. Thankfully I did not have any mental breakdowns during my break but  I certainly improved my friendships. I am extremely thankful for all the supportive and loving friends I have, without them I would not be able to continue with this blog. Thanks to them I have so many amazing ideas for my blog! These girls truly made me feel special with all their supportive words, jokes and kind words.

I love you girls!  ❤
