    Social media life

    Wednesday, April 19, 2017

    Social media life is not real life. Instagram is a strange land where people are constantly being photographed from behind looking at vistas, wearing bikinis in The Maldives and wearing floppy hats at music festivals. And Facebook? Well, it seems to have turned into a family photo album. I am just as guilty of this as […]

    Motherhood so far

    Friday, April 7, 2017

    I am one month into this whole motherhood caper and wow. It’s one of the few experiences I have had where all the cliches are true. I feel like a hermit crab with no shell, all soft and vulnerable. Also very hermit-y as I rarely leave the house. The weird thing is that I actually like it. […]

    Work break-up

    Thursday, April 6, 2017

    A couple of my friends have recently been through what I would dub a ‘work break-up’; when you leave a role in a distressing or unresolved way. The psychological damage is profound. I have been through it and am currently seeing my mates go through it. Why is it so upsetting? It comes down to […]

    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 […]

How to have a happy ending…

I am a sucker for a massage so it was with great fiscal delight that I realised that massages are are ridiculously cheap in Bali. I’m talking as little as 60,000 rupiah (about AUD$6) for one hour of blissful laziness. I went for a massage every second day, meaning that by the end of my ten […]

Death Traps of South East Asia

I once tripped over a wonky piece of concrete in Camperdown and broke my toe. I considered telling the local council about it just so they knew that I could have sued them. Flash forward to my recent trip to Bali and I am taking a stroll around Seminyak, an upmarket beach suburb. It turns […]

Austin, Texas: The coolest city in America

OK, so I have only been to two cities in America and one of them was LA, as in LAX airport, but I am no stranger to hyperbole. In August this year, my fiancé Stevie and I won a trip to the US to meet Quentin Tarantino and attend a premiere of his latest film, […]

Home is the only place to start…

Every journey starts at home. I recently moved to Marrickville, NSW, and quickly discovered that my new suburb was as full of life and colour as any overseas country I have ever been to. Marrickville Council has the *highest number of people not born in Australia which lends the area a thriving diversity. Walking down […]

Maybe it was fate…

I was a really bolshie little kid. I would talk to anyone and I wandered off a lot. My childhood memories are punctuated with any number of PA systems calling my name. I remember once when I was meant to be playing netball that I got bored and decided to just walk off the court. […]
