Travelling Gypsy : Hamilton Island

I love love love travelling!

Most recently for a holiday, our destination was Hamilton Island – Aaaahhhhmaaaaazing! We tagged our little adventure on to the end of our time in Townsville for the V8’s.  Firstly, we ventured down with our friends Jamie and Vince (whom we met in Japan!) and took the drive from Townsville to Airlie Beach.  On our way, we found the lookout at Mount Inkerman. And what a view we found!

And then we found a giant watermelon.. and some cows. Fabian decided they needed to eat some tomatoes – the cow was very gentle, but Fab was terrified of it nipping off his fingers! Vince and Jamie bought some local potatoes and we continued on to Airlie.


Airlie Beach is just devine. There is such a great vibe here – everyone is relaxed and here for a good time. And why wouldn’t they be – when there is a lagoon like this in the city central! Hellooooo sun baking!


And then I found the bar. Hello Sour Apple Vodka goodness!


We then fought the ferry over to Hamilton Island. It only took 30 minutes and we arrived to this: Pure Bliss! We booked our own private bungalow, complete with hammock. Selfie central. Fab proving that he can only concentrate on one thing at a time!


We like to get up and go when we are on holidays! We barely stop, as we know we don’t get much time off, or alone together. So we just HAD to do us much as possible! Our activities included riding the ATV’s (check out the view from the top of the mountain!), playing Mini-Golf (Fab won.. as usual), Go-Karting – where Fabian broke the record for the celebrity go-kart challenge and loved the early morning catamaran lessons. Not to mention the snorkelling, sun baking, jet skiing and enjoying the absolutely stunning views. It was simply amazing!


Hamilton Island even congratulated Fabian on his P1 title with a bottle to celebrate. Winner winner chicken dinner! And I was Go Kart 3. Not bad!

So we took it to enjoy ourselves when watching the sunset together. Ahh romance!


We ate (and drank) our way around the island with joy.


After three days, we were wanting more! We were not at all happy to leave. And who would be? Especially with a view like this!

  • Spring has sprung at Brickworks Centre, so let's take a look at some this seasons hottest trends from Freedom and Dwell. If you haven’t been down to The Standard Market Company, you would have missed their outstanding range to please every tastebud around, and while you are there, pop on over to Retreat Wellness and take some time out for yourself. Take a look at my stories for some more behind the scenes action. We had so much fun on this campaign!

  • Why do @Dyson products make me this happy? Once you know.. you know! Just like a good coffee- it looks so good, peps me up and works every time! Stylish yet functional, lightweight and powerful. My V11 is the ultimate. Take a look at my stories for how great she really is! So easy to use, light in the hand, battery management and simple to empty. It doesn’t get any better. Also conveniently timed for Mackenzie to run from watering the garden, through the dirt and grass for a wet cuddle with Mummy.. zoom in on those feet..! 🤦🏼‍♀️ #WorkingWithDyson #V11Aus

  • If you haven’t been watching my YouTube channel, you might know what’s been happening in my life (I’ll forgive you, you’re a busy bee too!), but we have endured many highs and lows these last few months and it has been challenging to say the least. #LinkInBio
Usually, Monday’s and Thursday’s are my work days. Where I just get it all DONE. Since we haven’t had kindy, it’s been busy busy busy here, juggling time together and time for the kids, health appointments, hospital stays and work to get done. 
I have to say thank you to you though, for your patience and kindness through everything in front of and behind the scenes. It’s been crazy but we truly have appreciated your patience through this. 
Our minds are open to what ever is coming and our hearts are full. And it’s all thanks to you. 🙏🏼 #CoulthardAndCo
  • To everyone that says: ‘I can’t curl with heat tongs’ ‘My hair doesn’t hold a curl’ ‘Blow dries don’t work for me’ Say hello to your new best friend. The @Dyson Airwrap is here to answer your hair prayers! Coming from a girl who CAN curl with heat tongs, who’s hair doesn’t hold a curl and blow dries never looked any good a few hours later.. this genuinely works and I am in love! Three days, a few hot showers, some exercise, two pony tails and a messy bun later, this hair still has curls. Ladies, you’re welcome. #WorkingWithDyson #DysonAirwrap
  • Hello, friend. How are you? Is it obvious I have a camera that I take photos on that isn’t my phone? It’s to save you from seeing four thousand selfies from me and enables me to take a photo without actually pressing the button on the camera.. if you ever see me holding my phone in a shot, that’s probably what I’m up to 😜 scroll down my feed and you’ll probably see a few..! Insta-husbands are great, but this is how I manage when I’m solo!
  • My @Dyson V11 does many things.. although I am yet to see her make my bed (give it time..!). Forgiving her all for all her sins, she makes up for them in so many other ways. Have you seen this girl run? She is almighty! She helps me function with a clean house AND makes me look stylish. The new torque cleaner head intelligently adapts to deep clean carpets and extends run time on hard floors. AND I get a real time countdown of the remaining battery time so I can ensure I have all my job's done. Just in time for spring cleaning. I am so in love with her! #WorkingwithDyson #DysonauV11
