We shared this video over on our Youtube channel a few weeks ago, but we never shared it to our blog, so here you go anyone who missed it! In this video we put Tara and Connor to the test to see who could answer some questions about Ellen the fastest. This was a lot of fun to film so we hope you enjoy it!

8 Hours in Sydney

What can you for 8 hours in a city you've never been to? Not much, but it sure was fun. Last year when we went to bali, our trip was briefly interrupted by an 8 hour stopover in Sydney. Not only did this mean our flights cost less, we got to have a quick explore of a city we'd never been to before. We set ourselves a challenge to see how much of scorching hot Sydney we could see in just 8 hours.

This weekend we came to edit the vlog we had filmed of our 8 hours only to realise we had deleted the footage accidentally. But we still had a few photos, and although we're gutted we no longer have the video, we thought this would make a fun post.

The first stop was of course the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Can we pause one second to appreciate the train in this city? We walked straight of the airport and onto a train which dropped us almost at the footsteps of the opera house. Public transport this good is a foreign concept for us Kiwi's and we were pretty amazed to say the least.

After a drink and a snack on the waterfront we spent the remainder of our short few hours in sydney wandering the streets. The buildings we're beautiful, but nothing quite compared to the at the Queen Victoria Building. It was an amazing shopping mall and at the centre stood a breathtaking 24 meter christmas tree.

After a wee bit of shopping, our feet began to tire and our hanger set in so we headed back to the airport. It was a brief, but awesome first taste of Sydney!

The Bali Bikinis

You may have seen in our Bali packing video that I only took one bikini on our trip to Bali last month (watch us fit everything into carry on suitcases here). While I was there I also dragged Connor and Ellen into every Surf and Swimwear shop around Bali until I found a second one I liked. Today I thought I'd put the spotlight on the two swimwear sets I spent most of my holiday in (as you can see in our Bali lookbook).

1. Bikyni // The first bikini is from a brand based in LA. I really liked the simple shapes and nice fabrics available, so it took me a long time to decide on what set to get. In the end I went with the longline top and hipster bottoms as I thought they would have less 'slippage' for me than some of the other cuts haha. The measurement guide on the site was good and the medium ended up fitting me well thanks to the stretchy fabric.

2. bellakini // After searching through the many surf shops Bali had to offer I found my second bikini in Canggu from local brand bellakini. I loved that it was reversible so I got two shades of my fabourite colour grey. It was simple in colour and cut, though a little higher on the 'slippage' scale (probably wouldn't wear this in the surf haha).

We went to Bali! After months of planning we escaped to Bali for 10 days. It was honestly such an awesome trip. We may of had a few set backs with dodgy taxis, but hey, that only gives us more stories to tell. We're hoping we can do some more travelling in 2017, or if not, save money for travelling in 2018. In the mean time, catch up on all three of our vlogs from bali to see what we got up to.
