your fave shop? (fashion and interiors)
Interiors: Industrial furniture store Guy Matthews in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Each piece tells a story and I literally have to tear myself away before I do some serious credit card damage.
Fashion: Net-a-porter and the Outnet. There is nothing like shopping when the Aussie dollar is strong and then you get the excitement of little packages arriving at the office.
your fave website?(besides my blog)
Recently totally fell in love with India Knight’s blog. She keeps me totally up to date with what is going on in Europe and I love her style of writing..
Sydneys best keep secret?
A little hidden beach in the East where people can take their dogs and everyone is sworn to secrecy before allowed down the stairs! I could tell but then I’d have a ransom on my head.
your fave furniture piece or object at home?
My leather chairs from ebay almost gave me a heart attack when I won them, as I suspected I got carried away in the auction. But then when they arrived they were more beautiful and worn in than I could have ever imagined. I fall asleep in one of them with a book every weekend.
Impossible to narrow down but here is a list:
For dreams of island life and to put a smile on your face: Gerald Durrel – My Family and Other Animals
An oldies but a goodie: Harper Lee ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’
Fav coffe table ones: Post Secret and Annie Leibovitz
My Guilty Secret: Harry Potter and Twilight (sssshhhhh)
your fave meal?
Bibika: A filipino rice cake cooked in a banana leaf over coals, then served covered in butter, cheese and coconut shavings!
your fave movie?
Recently I didn’t want to leave the magic of Pandora. (or Forks…..eeeekkk need to grow up)
your fave thing to do on the weekend?
In summer, head to said secret beach with the dog, an indulgent stack of magazines, and a esky of chilled fruit. Have an afternoon snooze before meeting friends for boat ramp swims in North Bondi. Have a long neck on the rocks (classy I know) before hitting Beach Burrito Company for a margarita and mexican tasty delights!

Connoisseur Cookies and Cream. Not allowed to have it in the house. Ever.
what kind of coffee do you drink?
Good Day: Skinny Latte
Bad Day: Freezacino style coffee with one billion calories covered in cream
