salt in the air, sand in my hair

Well hello 2013!

Where have I been my good friends?
I’ve been in hipster heaven; Byron Bay!

Along with our fellow fun loving friends The Jacksons, we had 7 nights bliss at a beach house in Suffolk Park which is a little suburb of Byron Bay on the north coast of NSW.

We stayed at the Tijuana South of the Border Beach House owned by local artist Gabriel Rosati.

I have so many more pics to share but rather than inundate you any further I’ll do a few more posts over the coming days!

Hope you are all having a wonderful start to 2013!
