Red letter day – Hyde Park

Wearing – Marcs dress (this season’s version), Wolford merino tights, Madewell boots This red dress is one of my favourites. Gorgeous colour, great shape and fabric, and a skirt that falls just so. So why does it often hang neglected and overlooked in my closet? Well, this dress has “history”. I bought it last year for one express purpose – for an exam. And…

Lights out at Heston

Our highly anticipated visit to Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in Knightsbridge, London, was not quite the experience we expected! We were excitedly catching the tube towards the restaurant when it was announced over the loudspeaker that we could not alight at Knightsbridge due to an unexpected power outage. We turned to each other, aghast that we might be terribly late for our lunch booking…

Hello London!

Wearing – Madewell jumper, Urban Outfitters jeans (similar), Happy Socks, Madewell boots Barely had I recovered from the fun whirlwind of cake and conversations that was my birthday party, then we were packing our bags (in a very frantic manner) and flying off to London for the first leg our holiday. It was the perfect way to celebrate entering a “new age of maturity”…

InstaRecap – London + Edinburgh

View this post on Instagram View from our window 🚌🚕🏤😊 A post shared by Sarah (@thesilverliningblog) on Apr 16, 2013 at 12:05am PDT As you can see we’ve been tearing around London like lunatics trying to soak in all the sights and eat as many pastries as possible, all whilst resisting the urge to curl up into a small but very warm ball, especially…

Cable Beach again

We went back to enjoy Cable Beach on my last evening in Broome. I had vowed to watch the sunset from a different beach each night I was in Broome, and true to my word we saw the sun set from a different part of Cable Beach to before. We stayed out late, well after the sun had set, deep in conversation and watching…

A visit to the Croc Park!

I’m writing this really quickly because the longer I look at these pictures, I get a rising sense of impending doom and start experiencing palpitations. The tour at Malcolm Douglas’ Crocodile Park starts off with a little wander around the park on your own, meeting the cute feathered and fluffy inhabitants of this park, which lulls you into a rather false sense of happiness…

Peachy keen

Excuse the tatty hair in these photos – Jinn had just touched down in Broome, I’d come straight from work after spending a rather sweaty day travelling back from Kununurra, and rather than going back to my apartment to set his bags down and rest he said, “Allons-y!” So off to Cable Beach we went to catch the sunset! So this little shoot was pretty…

Gantheaume Point

Whilst Jinn was in Broome I really wanted to make it down to Gantheaume Point as I’d read that there were real dinosaur footprints imprinted amongst the rocks that you could approach when the tide was low. There’s something cool about seeing things that are millions of years old, I find it fascinating and it makes me feel rather small yet thrilled at the…

Checking out the Broome markets…

As you may have gathered from this previous post, I kinda went a little nuts-o in Gorman during my blink-and-you’ll-miss-me visit to Perth a few weeks back. I instantly gravitated towards this sweet dress with its winning combination of linen (for the heat and humidity of Broome!), bold stripes and bright colours. I wasn’t 100% sure about the neon sandals (ankle straps tend to…

Jinn’s visit to lil Broome-town!

The day I’d been hangin’ out for what seemed like an eternity finally arrived – my Jinn came to visit me! He’s my hubby and bestie all in one so being apart is pretty difficult. Thank goodness for webcams so we can at least speak face to face regularly. Jinn was only here for four days and three nights so we certainly maximised our…
