We were picked up in Cairns to drive to the animal sanctuary (http://www.wildlifehabitat.com.au) Rainforestation (http://www.rainforest.com.au) in Kuranda. The animal keepers were so kind and lovely, giving us a guided tour with information about all the animals including the kengurus, wallabies, crocodiles, koalas, dingus, cassowary, Tasmanian devil. I had a moment up close and personal holding a crocodile and a koala. I love the beautiful koalas and how soft their fur is. They live off only one kind of eucalyptus.

After learning about the animals and petting the wallabies, we went on an army duck tour inside the rainforest (http://www.rainforest.com.au) learning about all the different rainforest plants, including a heart shaped poisonous plant, saw the bright blue butterfly (https://australianbutterflies.com) and The Cairns Green Butterfly. We also spotted some wildlife in the jungle tour on the lake in the army duck. After greeting the animals, we had a delicious buffet in...

I have lived a few different places in my life: India (7 months), Canada (1 year), Trondheim (1 year), Oslo (forever), Bergen (5 years), Reykjavik (4 years), Rome (7 months), Brazil (4 months), Brisbane (6 months) and Sydney (Kirribilli, Newtown and the Northern Beaches 1.5 years), Cairns (still counting), but I have to say, living in the Northern Beaches is the most beautiful place I have ever lived. Life there was relaxed. I lived five minutes from the beach, and every day after work and the weekend was a holiday. People walking their dogs along the boardwalks of Dee Why and Manly, the empty pristine beaches at Curl Curl and Freshwater. Not to mention the adorable shops in Freshwater. The Bondi to Coogee walk is also perfect. The perfect surf waves. I will never forget the warm and beautiful summer of 17' on the Northern Beaches.

I samarbeid med GANT Norge har jeg fått vise frem noen plagg fra kolleksjonen deres. Jeg har alltid synes plaggene til GANT er tidløse og elegante, og det er en glede å få jobbe med klesmerket. Jeg elsker fargene og stoffene fra kolleksjonen, spesielt korallfargene og silkestoffene på de to kjolene nedenfor. Den marineblå vår- og høstjakken har et nydelig snitt. Den blå sjorten og jakken er klassiske og har god kvalitet. Under ser dere noen bilder av klærne jeg fikk velge ut fra http://no.gant.com. Bildene er helt uretusjerte fordi  det er vakkert å vise bilder med litt imperfeksjoner, da det naturlige lyset ofte er kjempefint.

Følg gjerne @gant1949 på Instagram for spennende oppdateringer på deres kommende kolleksjoner:)

My photographer and I were invited to snorkel, swim, dive and relax on the beach on a Great Barrier Reef tour to Green Island with Big Cat Green Island Reef Cruises. It was a day in tropical paradise. Snorkelling in The Great Barrier Reef was the most incredible experience. I dove in The Great Barrier Reef in 2012 when I was on exchange in Brisbane, but I could visit the reef a million times and still be amazed!

Visiting the Green Island wit Big Cat Green Island Reed Cruises was an incredible and new experience because I got to visit the beautiful remote Green Island in addition to snorkelling around the island. On the boat trip out to the Island we spotted some dolphins and two whales. The island was a tropical paradise, and so remote. We swam with turtles, yellow, stripy, blue, and large colourful green fish as well as tiny colourful fish playing peek-a-boo in and out of their reef home. We got lost in the ocean for several hours. After we walked around the beautiful Green Island...

My photographer and I were invited to a crocodile safari by Big Cat Green Island to blog about the experience. Coffee, tea, water, fruit and cakes are free with the tour. The crocodile safari was beautiful, and we saw a large wild crocodile in its element, eagles, ship wrecks and various local birds. It was nice to be up on deck in the perfect sunny weather. To ensure a great experience, make sure you book your tour on a sunny day. Not only was it unique to see wild crocodiles one meter away, but the boat experience itself was beautiful. We passed by Cairns navy base and harbour. The crew told us the history of the harbour, navy and about the different crocodiles in the area.

Big Cat Green Island also offers you to swim, dive or relax on a Great Barrier Reef tour to Green Island for a day in tropical paradise. We went on the tour yesterday, and it was incredible! Turquoise water, snorkelling with colourful fish and turtles, relaxing on a tropical island....

We were offered a complimentary trip with Skyrail Cairns in exchange for blogging about the wonderful rainforest cableway experience. It makes me happy that the ticket proceedings go to preserve the rainforest. The Uber from Cairns city costed 20$ to Skyrail Cairns, but there are also busses and transfer buses to get there easily. 

I absolutely loved being up close and immersed in the rainforest, and stopping along the way for hikes in various rainforest spots and a small rainforest village. I would recommend Skyrail Cairns because it gives a great overview over the city, and a beautiful tour of the Jungle-book like rainforest Daintree Rainforest. The rainforest has the second largest biodiversity in the world after the Amazon.

I had the pleasure of photographing in Moira Hughe Couture's beautiful wedding dresses. Every little girl dreams of getting married, or at least trying on a wedding dress. I think this is why this collaboration was so special for me. Getting to try on six different dresses, and photographing four of the dresses, and wearing haute couture for the first time, certainly elevated my mood. My friend accompanied me said "seeing these dresses, who wouldn't want to get married?" Often, the most beautiful dress a woman will ever wear is her wedding dress. Moira Hughes alters each dress to fit the individual bride. She makes dresses that celebrate and accentuate womens' different bodies. There are several styles to choose from: strapless, waist-cinching, mermaid, with long sleeves that will suit any lady for her special day. The dresses are made of comfortable and soft fabrics and silks from Paris, London or other fashionable destinations. Moira even designed The Australian Bachelorette Georgia...

The rooms are beautiful, and the hotel had a princess vibe.

Langham hotel is a beautiful hotel near the Observatory Hill and The Rocks in Sydney centre. The interiors are beautiful and we were lucky to stay at the hotel for free. The pool, with its starry night sky and beach art is beautiful with an amazing spa area. The interiors and beds remind me of the princess room. I always dreamt of having as a little girl.

Have a beautiful weekend!
