(A)muse in Morocco

Golden lit desert, the wafting smell of tajine, brilliant colored building and tile, pumping point breaks...it's official. Morocco is heaven. I'd been wanting to visit this divine desert destination for as long as I can remember, and after being invited to stay at Surf Maroc's Amouage Surf + Yoga Hotel it was an absolute no brainer. Upon arriving to Taghazout I felt an eerie nostalgia I couldn't quite explain. Texture, color, architecture and history -- all of my passions oozing from the pores of this quaint little surfside village. It was a cultural barrage of smells and sounds, and I learned quickly the best way to keep from feeling overwhelmed was to jump right in. Buzzing markets filled with jewelers, leather crafts and homegoods stole my attention straight away. Choosing looks each day became an adventure of its own, pairing desert-toned neutrals with shiny accessories and vintage leather bags, or shimmery gold accents with classic black and white. The pops of colors in the buildings inspired clean, classic dressing and the sophistication of the locals prompted tailored silhouettes. What a fun adventure of sight, sound, and taste -- a Moroccan dream from which I wish to never awake.

The Gold Coast

The Gold Coast -- There's a reason this stretch of pristine beaches on the East coast of Australia is named as such. When my dear friend Anna rang from California, eager to hop on a plane, I was ecstatic at the chance to show her not only my backyard of Byron Bay, but all the killer breaks and adventures for 80+ km north.

A week later, I found myself hitting the road, sandwiched between the lovely Anna and our talented Aussie mate Nick Green, exploring autumn days of perfection. Camping in the van, waking up at dawn to watch the sunrise, chasing waves and hiking sacred rainforest kept us smiling for days. Exploring familiar territory with new eyes was enlightening and refreshing as I hosted Anna's first proper trip to Australialand.
