My last blog post from Melbourne.

Enroute to France via Dubai and London, I'm excited to explore new and unknown parts of the world.

For me travel is what living is all about. I love meeting new people, uncovering favourite new places and absorbing new cultures. Travel has and continues to teach me how to learn, adapt, love and appreciate the best in life.

As Bill Bryson perfectly articulated, 'to my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted'.

As I start experimenting more and more with monochrome, to add interest to an outfit, I've also enjoyed styling outfits with different shapes and silhouettes.

Ordinarily I'd team a peplum with a skinny pant or pencil skirt, but I this bubble skirt, from local designer, Robina Akiem, jumped out at me and was too good to resist.

Peplum meet the bubble skirt.
