2014 for me was a year filled with extreme highs, and extreme lows.

On the one had, I had the good fortune of travelling the world, and on the other, this was the year that I experienced my first significant loss.

Now more so than ever, am I aware of just how beautiful and volatile life can be. And it is for this reason, that the philosophy of, living each day to its fullest (as cliche as it sounds) underpins by being and existence.

 As my father would always say - be the kind of person who leaves a positive mark on the world.

 My goal for 2015 is to explore more of this incredible world and give back in which ever way I can. I will focus on my health and well-being.
I want to make the most of each day and make each day count.

I am thankful beyond words for the opportunities and experiences I've enjoyed and the people I've met along the way - who have each left their mark on my journey.

But most of all, I owe thanks to YOU, for reading this post and my blog.

For now, I choose to reflect on the positive, highlighting some of my favourite adventures of 2014. From walking the red carpet in LA, alongside Leonardo Di Caprio, to snorkelling the beautiful depths of the Maldives, to experiencing the most terrifying and exhilarating bungee jump off Auckland Bridge.

I leave you with the thought 'blessed are the curious for they shall have the adventures'.

Happy new year to all of my gorgeous readers, and here's to a prosperous 2015.

Last week, to celebrate my birthday, I had the pleasure (and good fortune) of visiting heaven on earth…otherwise know as the SIX SENSES in the Maldives.

In between swims in the most crystal blue water and indulging in some of the best food and drink I've ever enjoyed, I teamed up with RAZ to shoot the campaign for my jewellery line, by jasmin.

It is with great pleasure that I present to you my second collection of by jasmin - fine jewellery for the eternal wanderlust.

Inspired by the ultimate tropical escape, the new collection is inspired by a philosophy to;

On location with Jets Swimwear, in what can only be described as heaven on earth, the Maldives.

This last week, I've swum every day in the most magical crystal blue waters and lived in my swimwear.

My swim go-to of late has to be the one piece, which is now more fashionable than ever. Perfectly flattering on all figures and nicely doubles up as a bodysuit with skirts, pants and shorts. Perfect island style.

This pastel pink baby, with a high neck line is my new favourite.

Both styles are available now at
