With no time to research I was lucky enough to get some helpful tips from Michelle at Travel Managers.
(View from Breakas resort)
Where we stayed : Vanuatu is very popular with families so if you are looking for a couples retreat make sure you book an adults only resort.
We stayed at Breakas, which was set on its on beach with both Ocean cabin and Garden ones. Hammocks scattered the sea front and were a perfect place to stop and read a book.
The only negative was the very slow service and compared to other resorts not very friendly staff.

What to do: The fantastic thing about Vanuatu is you don't have to stay only in your resort.You can hire a quad bike ( this scared the bee-gees out of me ! ), visit a blue lagoon, walk a village tour, go on a buggy tour into the jungle ( you WILL get covered in mud), visit a turtle sanctuary , snorkel and those are just the things we did
What to eat: Coconut crab at Erakor Resort – across lagoon from Le Lagoon Resort – you get a free punt ferry across and back and has the best coconut crab(native to Vanuatu)
Nambawan Cafe(pronounced Number One….yes good old pigeon English ) – is a little cafeé in town right next to the market on the waterfront towards the end of town & does the best fresh juices.
How to travel: There are mini vans that roam the island.They have a B on the license plate and cost about $1. They seem to stop where ever we were standing and were a fun way to travel.
What to pack: Swimmers,easy clothing to throw on ( jersey is great for this !), bring a light jumper incase the weather gets cool, sunglasses, insect repellent and a relaxed attitude
Pick the time to go- Getting off the plane we were expecting sunshine and humidity but instead got clouds and about 20 degrees. July is supposed to be the dry season but locals say that due to climate change the weather is unpredictable.
Take coloured pencils, soccer balls and small toys for the kids. The people are very friendly but very poor .
PS Have you been to Vanuatu? Would love to hear about your experiences in Vanuatu.

One value that I TRULY adore in others is being a "go getter" So I was even more impressed to have come across a young girl of 12 who recently go in contact with me.
After a long day I was sitting on the couch and came across an email. It had been sent by a young girl Jade who was doing an assignment on Australian designers.What struck me about the email was it was full of gratitude yet I hadn't done anything.
Plenty of times I receive emails with a list of questions showcasing little too no research being done. Not only had Jade already done her work she was thankful !
Impressed with her email the next morning I called her to find out what extra I could do to help her with the assignment.
I don't know about you but at 12 years old I would have just used the Internet to do the research and not even thought to contact the designer personally.
Anyway she has gone onto do a fabulous assignment (pictured) and now its my turn to get to know Jade in her own words...
I am 12 years old and my birthday is on the 17th of August. I go to a school called mackilliop college in Bathurst and my favourite subjects are design and technology and art.You might like some more information about me
My full name is jade weekes (no middle name)
I have two half sisters, bella 4, Hannah 1
I play hockey tennis swimming and triathlons
I have 3 dogs (Percy,Aly,Sneek)
I love horses
I love creativity like arty things and diy
I'm very tall for my age
In year nine I am going on a program with school where I get to go to America for 3 weeks
I have been overseas 7 times (8 in September)
Why did you choose Katie Perry for your assignment:
I chose Katie perry because I was looking for a young modern designer and kind of mutual designs so not just dresses or not just skirts but a bit of everything.
What is your favourite KP piece:
My favourite piece would be your Bali vest, because it looks really really nice on you on your website but I probably couldn't't pull it off.
Describe your perfect day
My perfect day.....
Well it would be a Saturday but I'd wake up when I'm ready have pancakes for breakfast then go play my two games of hockey have a bowl of chips and gravy for lunch go for a horse ride then go meet all the hockeyroos and some other famous people an then go out for dinner with Katie and have hot green Thai curry.
Well Jade hopefully one day we will be able to meet for that hot green curry and with 7 overseas trips we might have a future Katie Perry customer,

PERTH-BASED DESIGNERS TAKE GLOBAL POP-UP SHOP PHENOMENON
TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL
Designers hit hard by online purchasing and the Global Financial Crisis are looking for smarter ways to connect and engage customers, most recently embracing the emerging phenomenon of ‘pop up shops’.
The pop-up shop (also known as ‘flash retailing’) is a trend of opening short-term retail spaces that originated in Los Angeles. Recently, pop-up shops have been sprouting in the laneways of Perth’s CBD like mushrooms after the rain, with locals loving the spontaneity of stumbling on a fleeting niche retailer.
In the lead-up to Christmas, five Perth-based designers are taking this experience to a new level, with an event that marries the pop-up shop with a farmer’s-market-style experience, supports local charity and does so in a unique, socially interactive setting complete with wine and canapés.
The inaugural Australian Designers Christmas Wrap Event will pop up for 8hrs on Thursday, 29 November at Seasons of Perth, with 10% of sales and raffle tickets supporting local charity, Teen Challenge WA.
The products showcased will include men’s underwear by Artillery 4 Men, handmade upcycled and sterling silver jewellery by Montsalvat, boutique skincare Pink Hibiscus (a favourite of Jackie O and Bessie Bardot), soy based candles by Wicked Wix and last, but not least, fashion designer Katie Perry will present her latest spring collection.
Katie Perry says, “The idea was bourn from the increasing pressure on emerging Perth-based designers to find new ways to engage and retain customers. At the Christmas Wrap, Perth people can connect with their local designers at a grass roots level. They can ask things such as “how is this made?”, “how do I best wear or use it?” and “where did your idea for this come from?” It is a richer, more social designer shopping experience that creates a stylish way for customers to do all their shopping in one spot whilst enjoying a glass of wine.”
