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.

(A)muse in Belize

SoCal photographer (and close friend of Amuse), Stef Vinsel, traveled to beautiful Belize and shared her experience with us. Needless to say, we're itching to grab our passports and buy a plane ticket! Dive into her visual journey below and get ready to pack your bags, babes.

"Unpolished, unpredictable and unrecognized, San Pedro, a gem of the Caribbean, is full of excitement and beauty. I had never traveled alone internationally and this was my first time journeying south of the North American Border. Needless to say, I was nervous and vulnerable. The overwhelming welcoming culture; unpolished, untamed streets and jungles of Belize were refreshing. It all reminded me why traveling is and will always be my number one love."

"I resided at the Las Terrazas resort for the week; a beautiful, primped resort to be sure, with white curtained cabanas, a salt water pool and golf carts for rent! That was actually my favorite part. Having the freedom to cart in to the chaos of the city of San Pedro was a treat. Not to mention, the crystal clear Caribbean waters and the warm air that coated me like a soft blanket; I was in heaven and four days wasn't enough."

(A)muse in Bondi

Our French muse, Michaela Thomsen traveled to Australia for a little getaway with her (super talented) photographer boyfriend, Virgile Texier. Talk about a dream team. Michaela's look has "natural French beauty" written all over it and Virgile sure knows how to capture just that. The couple explored Bondi, hopping from beach to beach, exploring neighborhoods and parks, and shooting film all week. Michaela nonchalantly threw on her favorite Amuse pieces and looked flawless, always inserting her French twist into the Australian landscape. The Aussie sun bronzed her skin and made her light hair and eyes pop against her black and white ensembles. Quintessential Parisian stripes topped off her (already perfect) look. It's pretty safe to say that we're infatuated with this duo!
