Let’s Go To The Beach

If you follow me on instagram, you may already be aware that Tatiana and I took a mini road trip down to Brighton Beach a couple of days ago. As usual, with me [and my unfortunate lack of any geographical knowledge], the day was anything but ordinary, between getting lost, packing more towels than sense, and my fear of the actual water (I’m more of a ‘lie on the sand and observe from afar’ kind of gal), the day was an adventure to say the least. After enjoying the beach tanning, talking and tanning, for a few hours we decided to go grab a bite to eat. What was originally going to be a fruit salad and juice, turned into a dirty street pie BURGER* outside a (somewhat classy) take-away joint. But whatever, we drank like 5 coconut waters so I feel like that counts for something.

Any-who… if you too are thinking about taking your own mini road trip to a beach near you, may I suggest you BYO shells, dream catchers and other beach-y necessities, as you will need these in order for the trip to take full affect. Also, it is probably important you dive (because, puns) into a super healthy snack pre-trip because that one healthy meal will most certainly give you the summer-bod you have been dreaming about all winter.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

PS. You as my beautiful readers, what blog posts of mine do you enjoy the best? Do you prefer my fashion posts? Food? Adventure/lifestyle? Styled/flat-lay blog posts? Or do you like a mixture of everything? I would love to hear what each and everyone of you think below and whether there is something you would like to see more or less of! 






  1. Hi Jessica, to answer your question … I prefer your food photography, really impressed with your staging and lighting. Very different from those casual shots of lunch/dinner by most people out there. Actually I like the fashion posts too. You’re obviously photogenic. Just curious … is there always someone else who took those pictures of you? They don’t look like selfies.

    • Thank you Jeremy! Really appreciate your message! I was hoping to get a bit of a response from everyone to see what is working for them and what isn’t, so glad to hear you are a fan of the food/ fashion side of my blog 🙂
      TO answer your question, the answer is yes, I luckily have a wonderful brother and also friend (mentioned in this post, her name is Tatiana) who take heaps of photos for me, so that is great and super helpful. Thanks again for your message and for stopping by

  2. Hi,
    I am sure you have heard this before(read all comments above) that you are an amazing photographer. What I really enjoy is that you have a very good mix of everything. your outfits are inspiring, your food pictures are amazing.
