BONDI TO BASIC – MY INSTAGRAM

I have recently started an Instagram account for this blog. Previously I used my personal Insta account, but I always felt a bit awkward posting too many pictures on there. I also had not told (still haven’t) to a lot of people that I started a blog. I guess I still feel a tad awkward about it, but that is a whole other story for another day. So today’s post is going to be a little bit different then what I normally post, well not a little but a lot. You know that I normally spend hours researching and writing posts, but today I got a little frustrated with Instagram and I thought I would write you a quick post on how amazing (if I say so myself) my Instagram account is and why I think you should follow me ASAP. Unless you are a bot… like  90% of the accounts are on Insta nowadays.  So upsetting because it used to be such a cool site. Click on read more to see why you should follow me on Instagram…

REVIEW: CARTIER LOVE BRACELETS DUPES

For the longest time, I have been seeing these amazing bracelets. I never knew what they were, where they were from etc, but I still loved them and thought they look amazing. The other day I was watching a youtube video where someone was wearing one of these bracelets and casually mentioned the name: the Love Bracelet. I immediately opened up google and did a search. Cause I wanted to buy one. To my disbelieve a standard love bracelet costs 6,300 AUD. WOW. There is no way I can afford that. Luckily you can find dupes for pretty much everything so I had a look on AliExpress (similar website to Wish) to see what they had to offer. When you type in love bracelet 100,302 results pop up. I bought three of these dupes to see if they can pass the bill and if they actually look similar to the real one.

THE EMIRATES BUSINESS CLASS AMENITIES BAG

I am sure you are aware of it by now, but recently I flew back home (to the Netherlands) to spend a few weeks with my family. I always travel with Emirates, and this time was no exception. I did, however, flew business class, because of my health issues.  I wrote an extensive post on it, which you can find HERE. As a business class member, you get an amenities bag for overnight flights. It is filled with goodies and good quality items. So, are you planning to fly business class soon and wondering what amenities you will get from Emirates? In this post, I have compiled all the amenities and I have reviewed the amenities bag (New edition 2018)

THE REAL BODIES – A CONTROVERSIAL EXHIBITION

Viewer discretion is advised, the below is dealing with sensitive materials related to real human exhibits – muscles, organs, skin, bodies etc. Wow! when I heard/saw (on every billboard known to man lol!) that “Real Bodies” the exhibit was in Sydney, boy was I excited. As I personally love learning about all things to do with the human anatomy and physiology, I was quite curious as to what exactly this exhibit is about? I mean they’ve called it “Real Bodies” but surely that’s just the name, right? Ahh Nope… SHOCK! “Real Bodies” means Real Bodies! As in real humans who once roamed the earth! Ahhhhhh! Real Bodies the Exhibit presents the artful display of 20 REAL, perfectly preserved human bodies and 200 anatomical specimens – fancy wording for human organs (don’t worry I’ve got your back 😉), so strap in and prepare to be amazed and intrigued, because below are some pretty incredible pictures and some fascinating information. This one will knock your socks off, I guarantee it! I know that there is quite a bit of controversy around this exhibition, but after doing some research I decided I still wanted to go ahead with posting it. I was unsure if you guys would be interested in seeing a post on this, so on my twitter account, I ran a quick poll. The voting was unanimous, even though only 7 people voted lol. But nonetheless, I have decided to write a post for this exhibition. I will also dive into why this exhibition is so controversial so that you can make a well thought out decision if you wish to go or not.  Again, if you don’t like to see bodies, organs etc then please don’t click on this post.   Another quick disclaimer: I have taken the pictures with my iPhone so the quality is not as good as it is normally. But somehow I found it a tad strange and disrespectful to be taking pictures with my DSLR camera. So my apologies for that.

WHY YOU SHOULD START A BLOG

A lot of people think about starting a blog but don’t know if it is actually something they want to pursue. They either feel like they have nothing to blog about, that their life is not interesting enough, that no one is interested in their hobbies or they are just plain scared of what other people will think of them.  In this blog post, I will tell you why these insecurities are rubbish and why you should just do it. I will tell you my story and what blogging has done personally for me.
