Fashion: Leather ft. Denim

Adding fashion flavor for a twist like leather and denim can be a big dilemma. When it comes to matching leather and denim together, you have to take into consideration on these two strong opposing fashion staples when pulling out in one look. This jacket from Zara Man was the perfect fashion piece on the cold and windy day tour at the 12 Apostles. I failed in realizing the need to wear denim pants just so for my love on this navy shorts from Uniqlo Singapore. I'm wearing a simple white inner cotton shirt from Giordano and paired it with my Nike techni - color running shoes. I was wearing snap back from Billabong ang classic aviator from Ray-ban. That sporty and edgy type of fashion look that I was trying to achieve was definitely showing on this OOTD taken all the way from Australia. Don't be afraid to add some leather and denim in your style, just be yourself and get the best look out of your creative imagination.

Food: La Roche St Kilda Melbourne

La Roche is the perfect place for morning breakfast to boos up your day. With their breakfast menu items with prices ranging from AUD $10 - $18, you will definitely wake up early everyday to catch up with their freshly made omelette. toasted bread, buttered mushrooms and grilled tomatoes. I also love their coffees here in Melbourne from latte to cappuccino, it's just perfectly done!

La Roche during lunch and dinner time also known for serving alcoholic beverages or crispy pizza pies right out of the oven. This restaurant has its location on Acland Street in St Kilda where you can purchase a salad, pasta dish or gourmet smoked ham pizza with the best taste and affordable prices too. I will definitely recommend this food haven if you're near St Kilda Beach in Melbourne.

Travel: 12 Apostles Australia

The picturesque beauty of 12 Apostles! The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Their proximity to one another has made the site a popular tourist attraction. Currently there are eight apostles left, the ninth one of the stacks collapsed dramatically in July 2005. The name remains significant and spectacular especially in the Australian tourism industry.

The apostles were formed by erosion: the harsh and extreme weather conditions from the Southern Ocean gradually eroded the soft limestone to form caves in the cliffs, which then became arches, which in turn collapsed; leaving rock stacks up to 50 metres high. Now because of this erosion there are fewer than ten remaining. The site was known as the Sow and Piglets until 1922 (Muttonbird Island, near Loch Ard Gorge, was the Sow, and the smaller rock stacks were the Piglets); after which it was renamed to The Apostles for tourism purposes. The formation eventually became known as the Twelve Apostles, despite only ever having nine stacks.

The 12 Apostles was one of the best works of nature I have ever witnessed in my life. It was hours of travel by road from Melbourne City but it was all worth it. This place is indeed one of a kind. It's the top 1 on my list to visit in Australia. What made it even more exciting was my helicopter ride experience where I had the 360 degrees view of the place. It was truly unforgettable!

Fashion: Hoodie Weather

It was a hoodie weather in Melbourne when I came up with this look. Our first agenda in the city was to take a good breakfast before we ticked off our bucket list one of the most daring adventure of my life- sky diving. We were at St. Kilda Beach strolling around this vibrant city and came across this bicycle that I used as the perfect accesory for this look. I'm wearing this statement gray hoodie from Pull & Bear and navy blue shorts from Uniqlo. It was a day of adventure so I made sure of wearing my most athletic multi-colored running shoes from Nike. I finished it off with snapback from Billabong and Aviator from Ray-Ban.
