I’d like to start off by saying thank you to everyone who has followed, liked, commented on and responded to my blog in the past couple of months. It has meant so much to me – I’ve always wanted to start one but until the start of this year, I was too scared. FINALLY I took the plunge and it has been oh-so rewarding. So much so, that I have decided to upgrade:



My new blog. Yep, I officially own my own .com. And it feels fabulous. Why TWENTY & CO? Well, as you may have noticed, The World by J doesn’t really have a “niche”. I’ve written about fashion, done reviews about books, random rants about topics in the news, and so on. So I decided, in order to make the name and my blog relevant to readers, I’m still going to write about all that stuff and more – BUT – TWENTY & CO is dedicated to all of us who are close to becoming, or are already, a “twenty-something.” In Australia, 18 is considered being an adult, but I still don’t really feel like a “real” adult. Will I ever feel like a real adult? I don’t know. But I’m looking forward to writing about a whole bunch of different topics as I begin my journey into the twenties. Over the next week I will be uploading some of my favourite/most popular posts from The World by J before I begin posting new content. First up is my career profile on Chloe Clark from Beginning Boutique. I hope those of you reading this decide to come along for the ride. If not, thank you for being so supportive and interested in my work here.

Lots of love,

Bucket list – Places I want to visit

I decided to dedicate this post to all the places I really, really want to see in my lifetime (preferably soon). So many people I know and bloggers that I follow have been going overseas and posting beautiful photos – it’s been giving me itchy feet!

Itchy feet; wanderlust – very strong orΒ irresistible impulse to travel

It’s so hard to put into words exactly why I want to visit these places. This is by no means a complete list, nor does it do justice to any of the places mentioned. These are the countries/cities I have always known I would see one day, or that I have recently been inspired to visit.

1. London

Everyone knows that English accents are some of the most entertaining/posh sounding in the world. London is filled with so many ‘must-see’ attractions like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and of course, the famous red phone booths and double-deckers. I’m not a soccer fanatic but I would also love to see a game in England – the atmosphere sounds insane.



2. Paris

Paris seems like the most perfectly, delicate and elegant city in the world. The art and architecture looks beautiful and it adds a kind of richness to the culture, which so many European countries have. I would love to see the Eiffel Tower, eat, drink and roam around Paris.


3. Italy

I’ve actually already been to Italia, but once you go there you can’t help but want to go back. There is nothing better than seeing all the things you’ve only ever seen photos of or imagined. It’s also great to visit a country that speaks a language you’ve been learning OR is spoken in your family. You notice it’s beauty and it becomes far easier to understand it. I loved every part of Italy that I visited (Milan, Florence, Venice, Bologna, Sorrento, Orvieto, Rome) and I would love to go back and explore them more freely.


4. Greece

All the photos I’ve ever seen of Greece (particularly the islands) can be described as no less than stunning. Like all other European countries, Greece is rich with culture and I would love to experience it first hand. Oh, and the food.


5. Spain

Once again – culture, food and a beautiful language. Three ticks in my book. I once had a teacher who visited Spain, and his stories made me want to visit even more!


6. Croatia

My grandparents visited Croatia last year and when they came back and showed me the photos I was so jealous. It’s a beautiful country. If I get the opportunity I would love to see Croatia in all it’s glory.


7. Bali

Bali is every Australian’s must-go destination. The weather, tropical scenery and gorgeous resorts are a dream come true for anyone who wants a relaxing getaway. I know I do.


6. America

Specifically, New York and L.A. Β Of course, I’d love to see all the other cities and places in MURRICA, but those two are ‘bucket-list’ material.

I can’t wait to see all these wonderful places one day. If anyone reading this has visited any of them, feel free to comment with any extra information you have, like the best places to visit, great tours to go on or just advice about travelling overseas!
