    Sponsored Video/Post: Phillip Island Nature Parks

    Wednesday, March 8, 2017

    I have been on some fun work trips over the years but Phillip Island was one of the best. I had just started doing the PR for Sydney – Melbourne Touring and the client sent me down to check out their wares. It’s not every day that you get to wake up in a windswept […]

    The right place

    Tuesday, February 21, 2017

    I read a lot of autobiographies of female comedians. Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Amy Schumer, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Mindy Kaling … the list goes on. I’m even reading Dame Edna Everage’s ‘autobiography’ at the moment and, in a surprise bonus thanks to Glebe St Vincent de Paul, it’s AUTOGRAPHED and dedicated to John. Thanks […]

    Pieces of you

    Monday, February 20, 2017

    We are all made up of little pieces of each other. Whether it’s something tiny, like the way I chop vegetables (thanks Victor), to the way I fold fitted sheets (thanks Mum), there are a million little behaviours that I have adopted from my friends and family. I am always thinking of the people in my life […]

    Maternity leave

    Wednesday, February 15, 2017

    Going on maternity leave is surprisingly confronting. Under normal circumstances, the thought of taking 7.5 months off would be ultra-appealing. Hello South East Asian beach holiday! Hello road trip! Hello involved, self-indulgent creative project! But no, not this time. I’m headed for the unknown horrors of the post-natal gulag which is, quite frankly, scary. I […]

SheGoes is turning 6

If SheGoes was a child, she would be going on a sugar-fuelled rampage in an Elsa costume right now. God help us all. I started this blog because I wanted to have a voice. Not a client voice. Not a news voice. A ‘me’ voice. A place where I could talk about whatever I want. […]

Dear Aunty Em

‘Dear Aunty Em, I have been seeing a guy for 10 months and I would like to take it to the next level but he never wants to commit to anything. If I try to make plans for the weekend, he says that he can’t commit even though he will organise stuff with his mates […]

New Caledonia: So Frenchy, so sweet

I got a bit fatter in New Caledonia. I’m not proud of myself but wow, those Frenchies know how to bake. Crispy baguettes and butter with every meal, perfectly turned out pastries for breakfast, cakes that are a cut above anything I’ve ever tasted for dessert. And then there’s the Alsace Gerwurztraminers to go with it, the Duty Free Champagne from […]

Today is important

September 10 is Suicide Prevention Day. Did you know that suicide is the number one killer of people under 44 in Australia? For all the Movembers and pink ribbons and road safety awareness campaigns, the thing you should fear the most? Yourself. A woman jogged past me in the park the other day and I heard a […]

Blessed be the creators

I love artists. I love how they share their perspective through their chosen craft. Art is the icing on the cake. The added spice. The splash of colour. How many days have been improved by the right song, a resonant combination of words, or an image that makes the impossible real? I love art’s deep […]

Luxe up your life

Luxury is such a weird thing. We’re meant to aspire to it and, in doing so, peddle hard on the consumer hamster wheel. And it is lovely. I’m not going to lie. I have eaten in some pretty fancy restaurants, stayed in five star resorts and been flown places in business class. But too much luxury can make you […]

Op Shop Week!

You could argue that it’s always Op Shop Week at my house but it actually is National Op Shop Week at the moment. I love op shops. I bought tonnes of stuff for The Spark and I’s new place at the Vinnies in Glebe which is a paradise of cheap books, daggy platters, boxed up glassware […]

Hawaii fan club

When I like something, I tend to really, really like it. Obsession is too strong a word but I am devoted to the things I love. Hawaii is one of them and, the weird thing is, it has that effect on a lot of people. I was chatting to my friend Phil and he said […]

Back to the beginning

Finding yourself back at the beginning can feel like failure but here’s the thing: it’s not. A woman I heard speak recently described life as a series of ladders. You climb one, get to the top, look around and then realise, ‘This is not for me’. Then you climb back down and head over to […]
