    Sponsored Video/Post: Phillip Island Nature Parks

    Wednesday, March 8, 2017

    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 […]

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. […]
