guest blog post: australia’s oracle fox

Post image for guest blog post: australia’s oracle fox

as free people expands and begins to ship to more international countries, we’ve been talking at the home office about getting to know more of our fans and blog readers around the globe.  this month we decided to delve into the magical land of oz…aka australia. and what better way to do that than to ask some of our blogger friends who live there what they love most about their country!

up first, mandy of the blog oracle fox, who lives on australia’s eastern sunshine coast. from the moment i discovered her blog i was enthralled by her style, photography and most of all her surfer-girl lifestyle.



The sunlight in Australia is like no other place.  I travel a lot and I love the light here for photography, it’s just so beautiful and quite golden.


This is my local beach access, it’s my own private little spot that I come to every single morning when the sun rises.  I stand here to check the surf and catch up with all the other locals to work out whether we should go out today and how good the conditions are.


My friends little boy and his dad swimming on the foreshore of my surfspot…


My friend Maddy heading out for a surf, I’d just got out already because I like to get up so early, Im a bit of a nerd :)


This weekend just gone we had amazing waves!  It’s coming into winter but it’s still summer here so it’s actually one of the most beautiful times of the year, offshore winds but not cold.  This is some of my very closest friends heading out for a morning surf on saturday.


My friend Penny chatting to another local guy who’s an amazing surfer about her new surfboard.  I love that when i go to the beach, even when you go on your own you can find someone you know to chat to, it gives me a warm old fashioned feeling inside.


I love the late afternoon storms that we get here on a warm day,  this is the view off my best friends balcony looking out to an afternoon storm 2 weeks ago.

driving in australia you need to keep an eye out for kangaroos!

I don’t really eat meat, or meat pies but I looovvee the smell of them when you walk into a “Servo” which is short for Service Station – when I went to Hawaii everyone looked at me funny when I asked where the servo was, I think you guys call them Gas Stations :)



the best way to get around :)

Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization?
I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
If you know of any please share. Cheers!
