The Northern Territory in Australia has some of the most spectacular scenery in the entire country, and there are many national parks throughout the area that cater to both visitors and tourists. A list of all national parks in Australia is available online, and you can use this list to plan a trip to the Northern Territory. Here are some of the best parks in the Northern Territory that should be on your must-visit list.


 
 
Kakadu National Park

"Escape into Kakadu National Park and celebrate the beauty of the tropical landscape, and the local indigenous culture. Accommodation options range from wilderness safari retreats, cabins and campgrounds to truly a unique hotel that is shaped to look like a crocodile." - Kakadu Accommodation

There are much to see and do in Kakadu National Park, including spectacular scenery on display, abundance of wildlife, and the Rock Art created by one of the oldest living cultures on earth. We recommend booking a night in at Kakadu National Park accommodation for comfort, convenience and absolute fun. Join in the many Ranger-guided activities or go for a hike early next morning to keep the adrenaline flowing!

 

Yeperenye / Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park

Yeperenye / Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park is 10km East of Alice Springs and is called 'the' place for wildlife spotting. Spend a full day out in the wildlife to spot while you are out. As this is a historical site, do follow safety signs and stay on designated roads and tracks. Most importantly, stay safe and hydrated!

Barranyi National Park is a picturesque destination that involves white sandy beach and crystal clear blue water. It is a people-favourite for hiking, boating and wildlife spotting activities. Besides those, there are also camping facilities available which you can rent and pay on site. The park is well organized with sign-posts and is equipped with facilities to make your stay a touch homey.

Tjuwaliyn (Douglas) Hot Springs Park

How would you like a fancy spa treatment without the fancy cost in Australia? Drive up to Tjuwaliyn Hot Springs Park for the natural thermal hot springs. Due to cultural beliefs of the local Wagiman people, men are not allowed at certain parts of the park. A tip would be to always follow the instructions or signage in the park.

 
 

We have been to Australia several times, moving from West Australia (Perth) to East Coast (Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Melbourne) up to Tasmania. The way we travelled evolved throughout the years! It's no longer cities and shopping but more sub-urban and star gazing. North island isn't one of the most popular destination when it comes to travelling in Australia therefore we hope this article gave you an insight into the little gems scattered up North.


 

The Everyday Bag

 
 

 

"The Everyday Bag" is sexy looking, durable and water resistant.

 

Here's a real life "What's In My Bag"...(throws away 3 days old cookie wrapper)

 

Recently, I got emotionally attached to this weirdly shaped bag which is groundbreaking because I hated it at the first glance and now I wish to sling it on my shoulders, over pajamas, to bed. Made out of soft pebbled faux leather, stitched with care, comes with a medium sized pouch to keep things organized and a wide canvas strap that sits on the shoulders comfortably. This was nominated as "The Everyday Bag" for a few good reasons. I live a fast pace life, we all do, finding a bag that makes us feel good, fits all of our essentials and is practical for the 24/7 isn't the easiest. It fits my planner, wallet, passport, business card holder, 8-hour cream, a flat wristlet (earphone, portable charger and cable) and a furry pouch (miscellaneous). [not here, whoops!]

I am an advocate of little handbags but there are days where we need to lug along something specially important, like an extra diaper or a bottle of beer (in my case). Wonderfully sized at 28cm x 22cm 13.5cm [Height x Length x Width]. If you would like to know more about The Everyday Bag, don't hesitate to send us an email. We have tried and tested the bag for 2 months now and would love to share our thoughts too! The Everyday Bag is selling @ RM85 with free delivery throughout Malaysia.

How Handmade Silver Bangles Can Complement Any Outfit

No outfit is complete without jewelry and a silver bangle can be the perfect addition to almost any look. Simple yet timeless, silver bangles can be worn with ease from day into night, complementing both casual and evening outfits. They can be styled up or down to fit with the occasion and easily add elegance to an understated ensemble. Here are some styling tips to get the most out of your silver bangles.


Intermission: I've recently bought a thin silver band with barely-there diamonds as a daily reminder to be humble, low profile and gentle. Stay true to myself and be a gentlewoman.

 

 

COLOUR that you choose to wear with your silver bangle is important if you want them to pop. Silver work wonders with the colour-way I have in my wardrobe because it provides a subtle 'edge' to my more minimal style. It also enhances cooler undertone which is why I prefer wearing silver jewelry! 

EVERYONE recommends to not wear Silver and Gold together but I personally think doubling up adds dimension and interest to a personal style! Just if you can't find any that suit your fancy, have a look at the gorgeous handmade silver bangles from Corazon Latino for a whole range of styles to suit any outfit. There is a say to not wear Silver and Gold at once.

STYLE thin silver wristlet with a long skirt for a bohemian daytime look. Wear chunky silver bangles with organic twists and curves, paired with matching rings to spice up a boring t-shirt and jeans combo. For something timeless, consider slim bangles that are contemporary yet classic (I know, I know, tough). A statement silver cuff bracelet or silver and pearl bangle can make the perfect addition to your staple little black dress (or in my case little white dress). For a girly night out, jazz up your plain jumpsuit with a fun knotted silver bangle. Speaking about being knotty (naughty) huh. 


Silver has always been the classic jewellery of choice and it looks like this would not change any time soon. Investing in silver jewellery is as logical as buying a Chanel classic flap in Beige. Gosh you know I'm making sense. Can't believe the week is almost gone! I shall finish up the can (2nd can) of beer and work on other projects toasting in my back pocket. Two juicy product reviews coming up. Till then.
