Honeymoon Part 2 | The Havannah, Vanuatu

I really have no words to describe this place. It was exactly what I had hoped for our honeymoon and more. The room was beautiful, the view was stunning, the food was to die for, the staff were pure heroes and that water... Have you ever seen a more perfect color of turquoise? Me either.

Honeymoon Part 1 | Iririki, Vanuatu

 Ollie and I hadn't actually planned anything for our honeymoon until right before our wedding. We knew we wanted to relax on a beach ad stay in a place where we could snorkel right off the shore, but that was about as far as we'd gotten with the planning.

 I swear, I could never get sick of Byron Bay. I love it here so much!

The Farm Byron Bay

I had seen The Farm on Instagram a ton of times and knew we had to visit during this trip. Having our little nephew Joshua with us was the perfect excuse, but in all honesty he only lasted about 15 minutes after we arrived and so we explored on our own. But no matter -- it's actually a great place for people of any age.

 Ollie and I have stayed in quite a few places over the last couple of years but this one really stands out as something special.

Our Beach Wedding in Byron Bay

Bohemian Beach Micro Wedding Elopement Byron Bay
 I've married my soulmate and honestly don't know how I got so lucky. It was the most perfect day in the most perfect location. I feel like I can just give up now because no day will ever top this one. It's been a little over a month now and I swear I still have a smile on my face. Going through these photos has been so much fun and I hope you enjoy them too!

Wedding Trip | Sydney to Broken Head

swimming at Brokenhead Beach | Alison Hutchinson
 We arrived in Sydney a couple of weeks before our wedding day to give ourselves time to wrap up any loose ends and acclimatize to the new timezone. I'm not sure about you, but Ollie and I both get terrible jet-lag whenever we travel and the last thing either of us wanted was to barely remember our big day.

The Start of Our Wedding Trip | Hawaii

So I know I've already jumped ahead to our honeymoon in the last post, but I'm going back to the beginning of our trip, which started in Hawaii.

Where to begin...

Beautiful beach and crystal clear water in Vanuatu | Alison Hutchinson
I feel like there's so much to catch you up on! Ollie and I have come to Australia, gotten MARRIED!!, been on our honeymoon and are now back in Australia for another month before we head home to Canada.

 You may remember me talking about an incredible shoe find I made back in the summer (here and here) so I'm sure you can imagine my happiness when I found out they make clothes as well!!?

Top 5 Favorite Sunglasses

 I've spent a lot of time in the sun over the last couple of years and have formed a bit of an obsession with sunglasses. I feel like since I could only choose a select few to fit in my suitcase, I've found the shapes that work best for me and with only five pairs, I think I've covered all possible outfit scenarios (well most of them anyways).

Living in Lulus

Hi my beautiful friends! I just wanted to give a little appreciation for life lately because in all honesty -- I'm loving it. I've been living in Lululemons lately (not these leggings though -- they're brand spankin' new!), going to yoga every morning, spending tons of quality time with Ollie, my friends and my family, and just all round feeling healthy and happy. It's always quite amazing how a healthy body can lead to a healthy mind -- it's practically like taking a happy pill everyday. I don't want to say that I was unhappy before now, quite far from it, but lately I just truly can't stop smiling. Probably doesn't hurt that my wedding is under 3 months away (eek!!) and the sun has been shining non-stop for like 2 months. Ahhhhh, life is beautiful.

Sunny Days and Wedding Planning

Oh summer, you are so wonderful. I swear, my entire Instagram feed is full of people complaining about the heat and I'm over here, soaking it in and having the time of my life.

Life is Better at the Lake

We've been spending the last few days at our family's cabin and I feel like a reset button has been pressed. The second we arrive, we are in pure relaxation mode. You'll have to excuse the swimsuit shots, but I pretty much just live in them the entire time we're there. These are a couple of my current faves and always make me feel like a million bucks. Also, they're quite good for the tan lines 😉

Summer Feels

 I've got to admit, when we first got back to Victoria I had thought we made a huge mistake. Now don't get me wrong -- I love this city and think it is absolutely stunning, but it was just so COLD.

It's Good To Be Back!

Oh wow was that unintentional, but it's so good to be back. We always hear of bloggers that take a bit of a break and I always wondered why since it's probably the best job in the whole wide world, but now I totally get it. It has nothing to do with no longer liking blogging anymore (at least for me) -- it's more a case of regrouping and taking a bit of a breather. I hadn't intended to do it, but what's done is done and I feel more motivated than ever to get back into it.

Summer Pants in Koh Tao

If these aren't the best ever summer pants, then I don't know what is. They're light, flowy and have slits all the way up the front to allow for maximum breathability. I'm so in love.

As I'm sitting here, inside, hiding from the rain in Sydney, I can't help but feel a little homesick for Thailand. That tropical air, the warmth and the non-stop sunshine are just too good.

Shooting in a Tropical Paradise

We've cut our Thailand trip a bit short and have come to Australia, but I've still got a backlog of photos so it's sort of like we're still there!

Tropical Life

Alison Hutchinson
 I could happily live life without ever experiencing another cold day in my life. This tropical lifestyle speaks to me and I like it. Never mind that I've only got 3 weeks of it left -- I'm gonna soak it all in while I can.

Easy Living

There's something about staying in a simple bungalow on the beach in a tropical location that makes all your worries disappear. I swear that I would be the most relaxed person in the world if I lived like this for the rest of my life and it really doesn't sound like too bad of a life plan to me...

6 Days in Koh Tao

Aren't holidays the best? We have been in Thailand for a month now but living in busy, hectic Phuket for the entire time. So when our friends were visiting Koh Tao last week, we of course took the opportunity to visit!

Be My Valentine

fashion and travel blogger, Alison Hutchinson, is wearing an Auguste dress in Phuket Thailand
I hope you had the most wonderful Valentine's Day! It's not one Ollie and I really celebrate, but this year I felt like getting into the love day spirit. I had this beautiful dress that I bought in the sales just before leaving Australia and hadn't worn it yet. It's a bit too warm for Thailand during the day, but once the sun goes down it's absolutely perfect. And doesn't it just scream Valentine's Day? I think so!

Rooftop Hangs

I don't know how we've been so lucky, but both of our homes in Asia have had the most amazing rooftop decks. In Chiang Mai, we had the most beautiful rooftop pool and in Phuket, we have TWO of them!! There would actually be three, but one of them is out of order at the moment. And trust me when I tell you that it is actually a necessity here because there's nothing better than jumping in the pool after a day of walking around the hot city (or in my case a sweaty workout at the gym).

First Week in Phuket

Hello! It's been a while but I'm happy to be back! I unintentionally took a month off of the blog but spent an amazing month in Australia visiting Ollie's family and having lots of nephew time with little Joshua. And now we're in Phuket, so naturally I have been taking photos of everything I see. These are mostly iPhone photos that I've been snapping along the way so hopefully you don't mind the quality. I just wanted to give you a sense of what we've been up to!

Happy New Year!!

 Well, I think I can officially call 2017 the best year of my life. Ollie and I spent the entire year as nomads and went on so many adventures that I can barely keep track.
