I may sound a little bias when I talk about the picturesque Northern Beaches, because we all know its so damn beautiful..BUT there are a few that take the cake for the most amazing spots on the beaches.
Collins Flat – Manly
This little beauty is tucked between the hustle and bustle of Manly and Sydney’s North Head. The absolutely gorgeous secluded beach is the perfect place to escape the crowds, enjoy a quiet swim and a perfect place for a bottle of wine to watch the sun go down.
Fairlight Beach – Fairlight
This beautiful beach offers an amazing mix of sand, water, rock pool and ocean pools.Very easily accessible and just around the corner from the super beautiful, Manly Wharf. This is the ultimate picnic spot, and the perfect place to spend on those...
With our next Bali getaway just around the corner, we have to get down and gritty with the reality of packing (and not taking our entire summer wardrobe with us!). Here are out top tips on packing for Bali, a little slice of paradise, without going overboard!
We have been lucky enough to cross paths with some amazingly inspiring and super clever people, including the beautiful Nicola from The Unrefined.
Nicola has let us in on some of her top health and beauty tips and shares with us all the importance of living a healthy and happy lifestyle.
We have LOVED watching your journey on Instagram, what inspired you to follow the full fat lifestyle path?'
Thank you! To be completely honest, studying nutrition and recovering from an eating disorder was what inspired me to follow the full fat lifestyle blogger path! I suffered from severe binge eating disorder/bulimia and anorexia for seven years (was MAJORLY scared of any type of fat) and had to defer my journalism degree while I recovered. Half way through recovery I decided to completely change...
When lounging by the pool, or by the beach…or by both at one time, (you better have a cocktail In hand!) my absolute favourite cocktail of all time is the white wine sangria!
I think it should be mandatory that when you’ve positioned yourself water side, to really enjoy the experience to the fullest you need a cocktail in hand, a particularly handsome pool boy and an endless supply of sun.
As you know, my favourite place in the world is Bali. This is where I have been lucky enough to try some of the most exquisite, delicious and bizarre cocktails EVER! (Please note their liqueur levels differ somewhat to ours here in Australia and apparently 1 shot equates to about 3….or 5 of theirs….) Whether that is a bad or good thing is up to you, however we don’t mind it so much here at Laine HQ ;).
Laine Swimwear’s Favourite North Coast Weekend Getaway
We all need weekend getaways occasionally to clear the mind and sooth the soul and Laines favourite place to do this is a hidden gem on the mid north coast of New South Wales.
Seal Rocks is only a 3-hour drive out of Sydney and is home to some of the most amazing secret beaches, islands and marine life you’ve ever laid eyes on! I find that my creative juices can flow so freely and effortlessly when I’m here!
A weekend consists mostly of eating, beaching, wining and dining all in the comfort of our little beach pad only minutes away from seal rocks beach, boat each and lighthouse beach (for all you adventurers lighthouse beach is 4WD permitted!) You lose hours here with the most amazing views as far as the eye can see. If you’re lucky...
We spend so much of our holidaying time on the beautiful Island of Bali. Our go to location for the best food, coffee, shopping and r&r is Seminyak.
Seminyak is central to all the best spots and locations in Bali and is a stone throw away from some of the BEST eating and drinking spots in Bali. Some of Laines favourite food and drinking spots are:
Revolver: We need a morning pick me up and if you do too Revolver is a must! We think it’s the BEST coffee in town
Sea Circus: Smashed avo on toast, good coffee and out of this world juices and smoothies is where you’ll find me most mornings! Sea Circus can deliver amazing breakfast, but don’t be fooled! Their lunch and dinner are just as amazing!
Sister Fields:The best Acai bowls in Bali, sisterfields also offers an incredible variet...
