Hello Lifestylers, I hope you’ve all had a great week. It’s been hot and hectic here at Lifestyle Fifty central and beyond, but life is for living and getting out there, which we’ve been doing – and I hope you have too.
Everyday Style of the Week
I’ve been loving (as always) my easy to wear, easy to co-ordinate and mostly no-need-for-ironing Vivid International Separates.
Below is an ensemble that has tripped the light fantastic a few times recently and I’ve teamed it with a soft luxe leather Travel and Living Collection Christin crossover bag and FRANKiE4 Polly sneakers.

We attended a gorgeous wedding, held at the harbour front in Geraldton last weekend, and managed to spend a little time exploring this mid west coastal town – known for its windy nature among other things.
But there’s far more to explore in Gero than meets the eye, and there’ll certainly be a more in depth blog post coming soon on my WA Travel blog “ZigaZag” featuring all the lovely things to do and see.
We stayed at The Mantra Geraldton Hotel and Ocean Centre Hotel, both of which were lovely for different reasons. The Mantra is an aparthotel, right on the harbour front overlooking the esplanade with a fabulous cafe/restaurant below called Skeetas. The Ocean Centre Hotel was right across the road from the beach and a hop skip and a jump from the main street, shopping area and some quirky cafes.
The Plantation by Di Morrissey
I guess it was falling in love with Kuching on our Borneo Ethical Adventures holiday last year which attracted me to this novel – oh and the ecological issues of palm oil and orangutan conservation and preserving the Iban ways of life.
Then again I’m also interested in Penang, and the Second World War, all of which are touched upon in a story which spans a hundred years and three generations of families living in Brisbane, Borneo and Penang.
The writing is fast and pacy. It’s a ‘what next’ kind of story rather than a lyrical novel, and it kept me guessing.
Anyway, if you like that sort of read check out more reviews here – The Plantation by Di Morrissey.
The Good Life
As ‘Living the Good Life,’ is part of the Lifestyle Fifty mantra I was very tempted, and just had to buy The Good Life : Get Lean, Feel Great and Look Fabulous by Sally Obermeder and her sister Maha Koraiem.
It’s full of delicious, easy to make meals and smoothies. I’m loving the super green lifestyle recipes, that are mostly easy to prepare and don’t require too many ingredients. The Good Life indeed 🙂
I hope you’re living The Good Life this week, in whatever way you care to interpret it.
