    Monday, May 14, 2018

  • Dear Aunty Em: Knob job

    Thursday, May 10, 2018

    “Would you judge a guy based on his work? I was chatting to someone online and turns out he works in the gaming industry selling slot/gaming machines. It’s been his career for ages and I think he does well out if it. It’s such a turn-off for me – is that wrong? Am I being […]

  • Becoming your authentic self

    Tuesday, April 24, 2018

    I am evolving in isolation down here in Camden, NSW. I’ve got to say, it’s making me weird. When you are protected from the influence of society, a funny thing happens. Parts of you grow that were previously trampled. Take my dress sense. I have always been sartorially challenged but I am reaching new lows. […]

  • Note to my girls

    Monday, April 23, 2018

    I have two step daughters and three nieces and there are a few things I want them to know. The first thing: you are not here to be decorative. People will comment on your looks. They will compliment your figure, and tell you that you’re pretty. You will hear other women complaining and comparing, fretting […]

Travel Tales: Jane Lee

Name: Jane Lee Age: 24 Occupation: Journalist Favourite travel destination? Barcelona. I still have great memories of a million winding narrow alleys (none of them looking quite the same), hot summer nights spent sipping sangria with strangers in open courtyards, dancing on my own in underground jazz bars filled with improv musicians and streets bursting […]

Lisa’s Travel Deal of the Week

Win a 7 day Jucy campervan rental

Being on a budget sucks. Everytime I spend money on something non-essential, I feel really guilty and horrible which really detracts from the overall pleasure of the purchase. Case in point: This morning. I went to the chemist to buy a nail file and came away with two nail polishes (black sateen and goddess), lip […]

I love Brisbane

Flying into this north-flung city, I had no strong feelings. I had always assumed that Brisbane would be an extension of the Gold Coast. More glitz, more high rise, more muggy nights spent drinking under neon. I was wrong. Brisbane offers up everything I hold dear in a whimsical, frontier setting. There are crooked sailing boats moored in the river, barely […]

A holiday in a bottle

Every country has its drink. Peru has Pisco Sours and Chicha, Thailand has Sang Thip and Singha. Wherever you go in the world, there is always one or two tipples that are served in every bar that are usually cheap and locally produced (read: nasty and fermented with saliva). What I thought might be a bit […]
