Happy 1 Year Tourist



It's time. I've thought long and hard about this moment. Ooo what will people think of me? What if I spell something wrong, and people laugh at me? What if a stranger puts all my photos and information together and works out where I live and then hunts me down? Well I don't care anymore! Hello world! This is me! This is my blog! This is my facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/thetouristnc

Yes. I have created a Facebook page (after 4 years from being on blogspot), where I can easily share my blog posts around to those who are intrigued about my life, which includes sitting behind a computer screen blogging all about myself!!! (boasting, I think not..). I decided to create a Facebook page because I realised I'm not really getting my blog out there, I realised there is maybe only 3 people I know who actually have blogger, and so these are the only people who can actually follow me. Since everyone has Facebook (Da'doi!), I can share my experiences, likes and dislikes with EVERYBODDYY!

I am planning to be a more regular blogger from now on since I have finished my course at AFTRS, and have nothing to do at all. I'm hoping to get out and take more photos though because I haven't in a while. Hopefully I might even make some small videos! 

Love Nikki!

Happy Birthday to me



It is my 19th birthday and I wanted to share my one and only birthday gift I had in mind and had received from my lovely mama! The casual, usual white converse.. but with platforms for my petiteness. Hope you like the revealing images. 

Also here is my brecky I made myself since mum went up to palm beach. Remember plaster master? Yup made that cute little plate underneath. Also did you know 90% of people draw suns in the corner of pages in their lifetime. I defiantly did. 

Sage & Akari





I came across this website and holy moly, right in my budget range and I love the style of clothing this website is selling. I love Sage and Akari's simple look that compliments the shape of the body really well! Looking forwards to purchasing these bad boys ASAP.

NEWBIE RAYS



At long last, I have found sunglasses that shape my face well. After giving up a sunglasses search years ago, Carousel was selling these really cute reflector sunglasses down in Bondi the other day. I know these unique sunnies are going to sit well in Summer, so I'm already thrilled about hitting up the beach.

District 8


So I've hit struggle street. 
Yup! This is where you just can't decide what to write down on your christmas list. Well I also have my birthday coming up as well so its double trouble for me and have been trying to find things I want to pop on my lists for ages. However, I came across this website called DISTRICT8, where you can log in through your Facebook and then start exploring an enormous range of clothing brands and their items all through one website. It then links you to their website and you can order stuff. The clothes range from everywhere all over the world, and you can even find shops that are local to you. It's like I've just discovered the World Wide Wardrobe! This is awesome. Please have a look there are so many things to browse. Here's a jacket I really fell in love with.

Sculpture by the Sea















This is one of my favourite Sydney events of the year where artists enter their work into an exhibition located around the Bondi to Bronte walk. Every year the artworks get bigger and better and more artists were showing their work off this year. Make sure next year when its on that you go during the week on a sunny day. That way you avoid the big crowds that I had unfortunately forgotten about.

Here are photos from when I went this year.

TOP 2: Food



Tops 2's is my funny and brilliant new way of say my top two favourite things at the moment, and in relation to food (since i'm not at all on a diet) that is exactly what I'm about to explain to you. 

So with these Top 2 delicacies if your going to make your own, make sure you chose the right ingredients for you . For example numero Uno: Smoothies.

Just blend a bunch of milk and yogurt as well as chia seeds with whatever fruits you like in a blender. Mine contained of frozen raspberries and honey. Trends these days usually poor them into jars  and pop a straw inside. However, my mum just bought the jam the other day and I didn't bother using the jar because I thought it would upset her if I just wasted it. But if your really keen head down to the food markets on saturday mornings in Bondi and you can buy them there with the straws included of course, for $14 each.

Number 2:
Get Iggy's sour dough bread, toast it and spread some butter on it, while you boil a hard boiled egg on your stove for 7 minutes. Spread avocado on top and slice the ready'd boiled egg (without the shell of course) over the top. Sprinkle alfalfa sprouts as well as salt and pepper just to give it that kick of flavour... and BOOM the best breakfast or brunch meal EVER! 


The Shop

I'm back! Oopsie. I've been very busy at UNI making films and haven't had enough time to sit down and have a good blog. However, I'm really excited to show you all my short film HERMIT at the end of the year and hopefully I'll have a link up to show you all. For now here is my link to the Facebook page so your following up on everything so far: https://www.facebook.com/Hermitshortfilm?ref=ts&fref=ts

Nonetheless, I have prepared a little post for you guys.


As soon as you can head down to The Shop, located in the backstreets of Bondi. It's a small boutique-like cafe with delicious breakfast and lunch meals that you must take a small group of friends or even a loved one to. There's never lines when I go and I always seem to get seats, so don't worry too much. Make sure you try something different every time you go because I guarantee any meal you chose from the menu will be mouth watering.
