Hidden Treasure

by Eliza O'Connor


Hicksville - Joshua Tree, California.

This trailer palace feel like a dream, it just doesn't seem real. For a start, Hicksville trailer palace is not even on the map. The directions are given to you just 24 hours before your arrival and you will find yourself weaving in and out of dirt roads to get here. You have to call 30 minutes prior to your arrival and geotagging the location is banned. It's other-worldly, and it's not like any place I've ever experienced.

Created and brought to life by an LA artist, it was designed to be a safe haven for creatives to come, write and be inspired. Joshua tree is said to heighten your emotions. That it did. 

Do yourself a favour and add this bad boy to your bucket list, you won't regret it! perfect pit stop on the way to coachella.

Home

by Eliza O'Connor


My final 24 hours in LA felt like a blur, I arrived to LAX with a swarm of paparazzi and much to their demise when I stepped out of the car, their cameras lagged and frustration rose! (Sorry to disappoint!) But I was not who they were waiting for. I finally made my way to the Qantas Club and attempted to take in the fact that this was it....and then Harry Styles walked in. And all of a sudden life made sense?  haha Joking! But wow is that guy charming! 

Anyway, I've been home for just under 2 months now and I am only now sitting down to process it all.

Some days, 2014 feels like a really beautiful day dream. Other days, it's vivid and I can almost feel the New York hustle and bustle on my skin. I have so much to share, so many crazy stories but I've learnt that life moves fast and my adventures can't be shared forever. People forget as fast as it happened. 

But every now and then I’m reminded of memories that I can’t quite contain and I seem to blurt it out, even if no one is interested. I also find myself looking through photos of my adventures most nights, as I've been feeling super nostalgic. That’s when I find moments I didn't even know existed, and it all comes rushing back.

I'm itching to go back already, there is so much I need to achieve. Something I struggled with overseas was accepting that life was taking me on its own path and that path didn't necessarily match the one I had planned in my head. I always put pressure on myself to be successful and achieve so much, and if I didn't meet those expectations I honestly didn't know how to cope. It's something I'm working on and I remind myself that I am only 20 and I do have time!!

Anyway, home is home. It seems nothing has changed except me … That is probably the hardest thing to deal with. I've done and seen so much, yet I've so easily slotted straight back into normality at home. It’s frustrating at times because it’s almost as if everything I've done, everyone I've met, was non-existent.  But, I know deep down that’s not the case.

I’m sure that a few of you reading this know exactly what I mean and how I feel and if you don’t, I'm sure you will at some point.

Naturally, I seem to have the travel bug and have already made plans to return! Which I am so excited about and I have some amazing things lined up! So stay tuned, its going to be a big one.

Lots of love,

Travel Diary: Mexico

by Eliza O'Connor


Tulum, Mexico.

One place i have wanted to go to forever and it was just as beautiful as i thought. We chose Tulum over other places in Mexico because of its laid back vibes, and eco-friendly boutique hotels. I wanted to go back to basics, and that we did. Every morning we woke up with the sun, mainly because it was too hot to stay in bed and of course there was no air-conditioning, just a small fan.

We spent all of our days in the sun, from 7am to 7pm, exploring Tulum's beautiful beaches and eating so much fresh Mexican. 

The sand was so white and soft, the water warm and clear. The locals were so friendly and welcoming, señorita this and señorita that. It was an amazing experience, and a good break from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

Here are a few snaps from my time in Mexico.

Stay: Coco Tulum, eco-friendly boutique. 





Four brutal things i learnt in nyc...

by Eliza O'Connor


1. It may be the most exciting city in the world but its also incredibly isolating.

There are 1.7 million people living in Manhattan alone, yet some say New York City is the loneliest place. To be honest, i could never grasp the meaning behind this until i moved here. To put it simply, i could walk out to the middle of the street butt naked and people would still scurry past racing to make that 6pm appointment or get the 5.56pm subway even though there is a 5.58 and 6.00 and a 6.02. Infact, the subway runs 24 hours a day, so no, there is really no excuse. Everyone is so focused on their lives and schedule that they barely have a chance to notice the naked girl on Spring st. (lucky me?)  But thats the beat, thats nyc. And you either have to learn to love it, or leave it.

 

2. The Weather sucks

You're lips are either blue or your make up is sliding down your neck. NYC weather is so damn brutal! Don't get me wrong, Winter is beautiful... but six months and three polar vortex later, you really start to question everything you ever knew about life. All winter you constantly yearn for summer and all summer you constantly want to be able to walk outside without your makeup sliding straight off. I'm from Queensland in Australia, i know heat. But nothing compares to New York City in the summer. Humidity is at 100%, you can't walk two steps without someone rubbing up beside you and well the subways are basically where you go to die. But then there is those few short months in-between where Spring and Fall remind you why NYC is so magical.

 

3. New York isn't affordable

Nuhhh uh honey. Let me tell you, you haven't lived until you've been bone broke in NYC. Rent is ridiculously expensive. The first apartment i looked at was in this amazing Soho loft, i walked in (incredibly naive) thinking great $1600 a month for a room in this apartment, done. Oh no, that was $1600 for the cupboard.. yep, a former cupboard transformed into a shitty bedroom for $1600 a month. I constantly found myself choosing between... Sephora or whole foods, sadly Sephora usually won. 

 

4. Soul Cycle is taking over NYC

Ummmmm?! Am i the only one that thinks this soul cycle religion is completely crazy?! RPM class with a little more aggression and nicer bikes is all it is. Yet it seems to have a cult following in NYC and the rest of America. $40 a class, i am yet to conform. 

 

NYC in all its glory, don't worry i still love you. 

 

 


Summer in the Hamptons

by Eliza O'Connor


When i was proposed to move to the Hamptons for the summer the first thing that popped into my head was... season 2. Gossip Girl. yes. take me now. I'm talking about the infamous GG white party and the first few eps of season 2 where B & S head too for the summer. So my natural instinct was 'ok! il go!'. 

 Its everything i imagined it to be and more. Its beyond beautiful, the people are so friendly (i mean you would be if you lived in a 60 million dollar home on the beach and was on a permanent holiday!)

I'm based in East Hampton, kind of in between South Hampton (where the Kardashians are currently taking over) and Montauk. 

Its like a fantasy land here, and i am happy to be escaping the city during summer and be back by the beach. Me and the one other million people also escaping to Long Island for the summer.

Don't get me wrong i love nyc, but theres something about this place that i definitely connect more with.

I was out to dinner in Sag Harbor and looked to my left and Bethany Frankel was at the table next to us, thats probably the defining moment of 'Welcome to the Hamptons Lize!'

So i will try and blog about my escapades as much as possible.. i think this is going to be one of the best summers to date.... and then i'll get summer 2.0 back in Aus. Winnnninngg!! 

Oh and i also started a tumblr, feel free to shoot some messages my way if you wish to ask me anything! www.dreamersclub-oui.tumblr.com

love to all you beautiful humans reading my rambles x 



Roadtrip ft. Coachella

by Eliza O'Connor


Sorry sorry sorry for my slackness in updating this realm. I promise I am going to try and be more diligent! 

But for now, lemme tell you about my spring break.

After being in the snow for 2 months and then dragged through the Polar Vortex in NYC i was in no way shape or form ready to show skin! I was pale, oh so pale... So before hitting the road to Coachella i flew a quick two hours from NYC to Miami to get some sun.

I was desperate, more desperate than i ever could have imagined to get to the beach. I was so spoilt back home waking up by the beach, jumping in the ocean before I started my day, that something so simple as the sun warming my salty skin, after hours in the water was like heaven to me, once again. 

Then after a few days exploring Miami & the Gulf of Mexico i joined some Australian pals to begin the roadtrip of all roadtrips. Driving through the desert crossing the Nevada/ California State line... & back again to Palm Springs aka Coachella. Hands down the best roadtrip I've ever been on. 

I was on scenery overdrive the entire time. It was like nothing i had ever seen before, something so foreign to me. We took our time, explored a little, even had a desert party. After a crazy night in Vegas we hit the road - headed to Palm Springs. Surviving on two hours sleep, we all made a fatal error... forgot to fill up the tank, nor did we remember the water. After barely making it to a rapey gas station (actually the gas station from the hills have eyes thus v rapey) we were back on track. 

I'm sure most of you have heard of the place 'Joshua Tree', much to my surprise i wasn't visting a single shrine of a tree named.. Joshua? I was in an actual place. It took me a while to wrap my head around this place. We were in the middle of the desert, nothing seemed to be trendy about it besides the random vegan cafes (clear sign that there must be some desert chic vegans living here) so for all those hopelessly sad vegans, go to Joshua tree, i'm sure you'll fit in.

An hour later, we ended up in Palm Springs. By far the most visually pleasing place i have ever found myself in. I could not stop staring. Balmy blue skies, Palm trees lining every inch of the streets, beautifully manicured gardens and massive mansions all looking out over the desert. I think thats what makes Coachella so good, that you are in this amazing place so far from everything with half a million people who just want good vibes & good music. 

Half way into the festival it was clear that it was all about who could out do who through special guests (no complaints) . In between Bieber, Gwen Stefani, Jay Z and Snoop Dog/ Snoop Lion i do believe Beyonce on stage with Solange took the cake. Also, seeing the Pretty Little Liars girls hand in hand backstage was up there - only at Coachella righhht? Coachella, was simply incredible and no amount of photos or stories will ever do it justice. It's one thing everybody needs to experience.

And it wouldn't be a holiday without stopping over in LA. Tip: Don't get drunk with David Arquette - you will lose your wallet & it may or may not show up three days later at a strip club on Sunset Blvd. 

Enjoy the snaps x

NYFW

by Eliza O'Connor


In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, “every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future…this is know as Fashion Week."..... Well aint that the truth!

Worlds apart from the mediocre MBFF Brisbane that I am used to… this year I was catapulted into the pinnacle of all fashion weeks, New York Fashion Week.

What an absolute whirl wind. I watched as the Lincoln Centre transformed into a runway where beautiful people donned dreamy outfits, making their way to watch an array of fashion elite present their Fall 14’ collections. The photographers were out in full force snappin’ bloggers, a-listers and fassshhuuun-istas left right and centre.

Seated behind my ultimate muse, Lara Bingle, at the Zimmermann show (which by the way is an incredible collection), life seemed pretty damn surreal! When talking with Lara after the show I was comforted by the fact that another Aussie blonde had also just moved to the Big Apple. 

Throughout the week I was lucky enough to hang with some pretty cool people, taking time out from the chaos and bustle of fashion week to focus on the real reason we were all there… our love of clothes and loooootss of them.

Here are some happy snaps below!

Sin City!

by Eliza O'Connor


I think Vegas gets a bad wrap, while yes prostitution is legal and gambling is encouraged, there is SO much more to this city than that.  

 It’s continuously labeled as the city that’s tacky, tasteless and severely over the top. Where most ‘beautiful’ people are surgically enhanced, overweight Americans spend most of their days at the all you can eat buffets and party animals come and get ridiculously drunk with a 99% chance of getting hitched! (That explains Sin City having the highest divorce rates in America)

But, I saw a completely different side to Vegas than the ‘stereotypical’ take. I stayed off the strip in Palms Place in the most incredible penthouse (Which happened to be the pick for Georgia-May Jaggers 22nd birthday with pal Cara Delevigne a week prior).

 We touched down in Vegas and realised that after two months in the snow, we all seriously needed to fix our pasty white bodies to prepare ourselves for the week ahead. So without even hesitating I pulled up Google and searched ‘Late night tans’ within two hours we found ourselves jumping in a cab, decked out in white robes heading to ‘bronzed’. Only in Vegas would you be able to get a tan at midnight and it be completely normal. Once we all looked like we spent a week in the Bahamas the Vegas bender could begin…

 Instead of gambling our money away we spent it dining out, eating delicious food and drinking wine at some of Vegas’ best restaurants. Thanks to SW steakhouse at the Wynn, Michael Minner at the Belagio and STK at the Cosmopolitan for wining and dining us.

Christmas in Colorado

by Eliza O'Connor


This was my first Christmas away from home and my very first White Christmas.

It was worlds apart from the past 18 Christmas' that i've had. I'm normally laying by the beach soaking in the rays or doing what most families do and spend Christmas day in the car driving to each side of the family just to have the same conversation with your extended family as you had the year before ... but this year i was all rugged up playing pool, sipping mulled wine and sitting by the fire... It seemed almost too perfect!  The only thing that was missing was my Mum, Dad and oldest brother... other than that i felt as if i had everything in the world right at my feet. 

It was the ultimate way to end what has been an interesting year. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and spent it with those who matter most to you, because when you take everything away.. it's really all you have. 

I have Biiiigg plans for the year ahead, all of which will be detailed right here.  

Below you will find moments captured in time of how i spent my Christmas... wearing Watson x Watson, Zimmermann, Zara, Cartier and 3.1 Phillip Lim. x

NYC.

by Eliza O'Connor


Honey, I'm Home. 

The city of fucking dreams. Welcome to New York City where coffee is pronounced 'cawwwfeee'... & i love it.

As i was wandering the streets around my East Village apartment i found myself staring at a brick wall covered with quotes, pictures and travellers notes that had been and gone. My eyes immediately were drawn to this,

"One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years...".

I can't even begin to explain my time in NYC. So i am going to let the photos explain some of my adventures. Lets just say its the most inspiring city i have ever found myself in and i cannot wait to explore every inch of it during the next year.

Just Do it

by Eliza O'Connor


Just do it. Like Nike taught us, but less about busting out some extra squats, what I am talking about is taking control of where you will end up. An idea that may be terrifying but endlessly exciting. 

Whatever you want, go for it. You have a whole lot more to lose if you don't, I guarantee you. 

That's exactly what I said to myself when the idea of moving to America popped in my head. I've had a lot of emails asking how I am doing this crazy adventure and my experience this far, so I thought I'd share. 

I decided I wanted to go to America, in particular New York and Colorado as I traveled there quite a bit when I was younger. I always remembered feeling so happy there and telling myself that one day I would live here. I wanted to keep that promise to my 14 year old self, so I traded the sun and sand for snow and city streets.

If you are going to do something like this then you have to do everything in your power to make it happen. I worked hard to be able to do this and I made a point of doing it all myself. I made my own happiness and I can tell you that it's so much sweeter when you do it yourself. 

My time in LA was a whirlwind, the people you meet in the hotel bar or in the fitting rooms at Barneys can have the power to change your life momentarily or forever in ways you could never imagine. That is what is so exciting about the city of angels.

With that however comes the not so amazing things. From personal experience, some things are better left unsaid and off the social media realm. LA also brought me my first encounter with twitter hate. So I've decided that posting particular photos may not be in my best interest from now on and that some things are best left between friends.

But hey welcome to Hollywood!  

NYC has been just as crazy and I can't wait to share the adventures (the ones that won't cause Twitter attack 2.0) with you. Stay tuned!

Welcome to LA

by Eliza O'Connor


'Your hands are so cold!' were the words that popped out of Miley's mouth with a twang as she pulled me up onto a podium at her Twenty-First birthday. A door disguised as a book shelf edged opened and a haze of smoke blew into my face, I found myself in the basement of the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. It was like I stepped into her 'We Can't Stop' music video or the twilight zone for that matter. For the next four hours we celebrated, danced and even dropped a sneaky twerk. As we left, filled with excitement and basically just high on life the glare of TMZ and E News cameras beamed into our eyes as we darted out the back door and into our car. Three Australians collapsed in a heap in the back seat and began to laugh hysterically. 

From the moment I touched down in LA at 6am on my flight from Australia I knew I was in for an Adventure.... and I definitely wasn't wrong. You know those times when everything  seems to fall into place, when one thing excitingly leads to another? 

Despite the lack of sleep, the jet lag and the fact that my phone crashes every five minutes thanks to twitter.. my time so far in LA has been epic.

Up up & away.. the big move.

by Eliza O'Connor


At first I decided I wanted to go to America as a way to ‘escape’ certain things that were happening in my life. It was the perfect getaway plan. Life was boring me at nineteen and that sent my world into a spin- boring at nineteen? Well I might as well jump off that bridge now because its only going to go down hill from here!  (or so I have been told) But life in the states couldn't possibly be as mediocre as Brisbane. Funnily enough, I always wanted to be that adventurous carefree person that just quits their job and ups and leaves, discovering a whole new world,  and this was my chance. I wanted to instill my faith back into humanity. I wanted to prove that there is good in everyone and that meant meeting new people. I honestly believed the grass was going to be greener on the other side…

That was 9 months ago...

And here I am now, about to board my flight to America and start this adventure I so desperately need. 

The only difference between now and 9 months ago is now I’m not moving to America to escape anything. I am going for myself…to push myself completely out of my comfort zone. It may sound cliché, but this move is the craziest, scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life and I hope that when I return home, I’ll have learnt a lot about myself.  I no longer want to prove to myself that there is good in everyone because I have learnt that there is not; in fact I now believe that, that view is incredibly naïve. Because lets face it... some people are just born evil. Through coming face to face with dishonesty, I have learnt that majority of people will kick you when you’re down. But you have to get up, and keep on fighting…because if you don’t who will? I think I am pretty blessed to have learnt that at such a young age. 

For the first time, my crazy day dream has turned into reality, and I’m doing something that scares me beyond belief. It means leaving my mum & dad behind, the comfort of my own home, an amazing job, and a place I know all too well. I’m swapping all of this to live in a city where I mean nothing in the hope that I become something, the best possible version of myself. I think there is a great deal more to life then going out every weekend, getting drunk and repeating it.

You see I believe there is something in between growing up and growing old. 

And I am going to find out exactly what that is. 

I’ve started this blog as a way to keep track of my travels and to please my biggest fans, Mum and Dad so they feel as if they are right here beside me. It will detail the people I meet, the places I visit,  the supersize food that I eat, and everything in between including a bunch of happy snaps. So if you like follow my blog and keep track of my Instagram  (@lizeoconnor). They will be the best moments captured in time. 

As for now, I need to stop typing and board my flight to LAX, as any minute I will hear the dreaded words "paging Eliza O'Connor on flight QF669 to Los Angeles, the plane is about to depart and you are the last remaining passenger". So I'll see you on the other side!

This is my attempt at ‘yoloing’ life, enjoy.
