Hobart, Tas

Recently I went on a trip to Tasmania, somewhere I have never travelled to and I was pleasantly surprised! I don’t really travel much in Australia which is something I would like to do more of in 2019. To experience more of the places my home has to offer.

Here is my guide of where to eat, stay and what to do in Hobart.

Things to do

Mona
The most popular art gallery in Hobart. They are open Wednesday- Mondays.
Tickets are $28 for adults and it is quite easy to get to via the ferry.
The art is so incredible and emotive it’s something you don’t want to miss.
Wearing: For the day I wore a white linen shirt, high waisted jeans, Isabel marant boots, Chanel bag and cashmere scarf to keep warm. A comfortable yet classic outfit for a day of travel.

Eat

Jackman & McRoss bakery- Battery point
As soon as you walk in you are met with display cabinets filled with home made cakes and pastries.
We had breakfast here and it was something to rival the places in Melbourne.  

Bars

Society Bar
One of the tastiest drinks I had was the Caramello Koala cocktail. A must try!
Wearing my Camilla dress with overlay and a leather belt to bring in my waist. Ankle boots and leather jacket were worn as it was still fresh and chilly in Tasmania.

Stay

We stayed at the Henry Jones art hotel in Hobart which was right on the pier.
This was a perfect location to all restaurants and bars, not to mention having a gorgeous view.
The hotel is also filled with art!

Other places we visited were:
The Glass house
Brooke st Lader
Puddleduck winery
Frogmore creek winery

Money: tips and advice

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

How to save?!

This can be a difficult topic to talk about and especially in your late 20’s you don’t want to be asking for money advice, because shouldn’t you have it all under control by now?!
See below some great tips about being in control of your money and becoming financially independent.

 

  1. Own your own money- know what’s going on. Know where your money is going and how to make the most of it.
  2. Reset your money mindset- being more purposeful with your money. Do you get stressed and then all of a sudden you have binged on chocolate and bought 3 new tops you didn’t need on net-a-porter? Understanding what triggers your spending.
  3. Invest in yourself- you can control what you do. Find a job that makes you happy!
  4. Eliminate and avoid lifestyle debt- credit cards and personal loans should be kept to a minimum or avoided all together if possible.
  5. Don’t compare your wealth- run your own race! This one is an important one, as it can become over whelming and stressful when you are always comparing yourself to others.
  6. Spend for happiness not pleasure- don’t focus on buying something for instant gratification. Don’t buy things for that instant burst of happiness because it is only temporary, spend your money on things you really love.
  7. Divide your wage into sections. For example 20% goes to Savings like a home, a holiday to Europe, another 20% goes to small pieces like new clothes or a weekend away trip and 60% goes into the every day like bills etc. Depending on your expenses your ‘every day’ may need to be at a higher percentage.
  8. Name your different bank accounts something fun to keep you motivated.
  9. Have your money in different bank accounts or take out only the cash amount you can spend.
  10. And lastly know where your money goes, write down your spendings so you know where to cut down and help you save. If you notice you are having 2 take away coffees a day cut it back to one, bring your lunch to work etc.

Entrecote

A perfect winters day out in Melbourne.
One of my favourite places to eat is Entrecôte in South Yarra

IMG_0055IMG_0058IMG_0056
A place to catch up on some gossip with a friend, it is the perfect place to feel Parisian in Melbourne.
Eating: Burgers w/ frites
Drinking: Champagne of course!
Dessert: Espresso and Lemon tart

Wearing: Marion Bleu ostrich feather jacket. Wrangler jeans/ Longchamp bag / black boots/ Uniqlo wool sweater and Chanel earrings.
This outfit is a typical French outfit of jeans, wool sweater and your Longchamp bag.
Something the French are great at is mixing different textures and labels together. It helps to create an effortless look.
