lets get merry

Its December, Christmas is coming well actually for a stylist its been here for quite awhile already.

This year I have decided for a simple Christmas at Home.

I made a Little Merry (literally) and added a cute little tree and that all…

For the “cheers “and “merry” letters I printed out templates I downloaded online on coloured paper and then cut them out with scissors then used a hole punch to make holes and thread string thru and taped them up – Super easy!

fiat christmas vibes

How is it almost December – Christmas is coming!

Last week whilst in Melbourne Sophia and I headed into the Fiat Australia Offices to decorate their Christmas tree

We loaded up the festive (red) Fiat 500 X and picked up our tree and decorations…

We had a fun morning trimming the tree with beautiful vintage style decorations from Scout in St Kilda 

We had a simple but traditional colour palette of silver, glass and red which worked perfectly with the green (real ) tree and some fairy lights of course!

wayside chapel book

I proud to share news that The Wayside Chapel has released a coffee table book, called Wayside.

The Wayside Chapel, in the heart of Sydney’s Kings Cross, is a meeting place for people from all walks of life — have-nots and haves, homeless and housed, atheists and believers, lost and saved, sick and well. Im proud to be one of their Ambassadors

In Wayside, Reverend Graham Long tackles profound truths about life, death, friendship, hardship and the redemptive power of love. Acclaimed photographer Gary Heery has shot striking black and white portraits of the visitors, volunteers, staff and friends whose paths cross at the Wayside – a place where love famously meets hate. Designed by Andrew Henderson, Wayside is a beautifully curated portrait of our community and reaches right into the soul of Sydney, bringing out all that makes this city unique.

“Wayside is a triumph of community and a testament to the strength and diversity of the characters that call Kings Cross home.  It’s a book where everyone is a person to be met, not a problem to be solved, and we look at Wayside’s wide and impactful reach into the community – from the rough sleepers of the Cross to the lofty heights of establishment,” said author Rev Graham Long.

“These are tales of struggle, pain and adversity but also of triumph, achievement and hope. This place has touched countless lives, from the streets to high society. Turn these pages and you will see what Wayside sees: that, wherever we come from, we are a single community. Wayside is a hub, geographically and metaphorically,” General Hurley wrote.

Wayside features some of Sydney’s most well-known faces, including its ambassadors David Wenham, Claudia Karvan, Indira Naidoo and Kylie Kwong and myself along with supporters Dick Smith, Michael Dorman, Camilla Franks, Luke Sales, Anna Plunkett, Alannah Hill, Akira Isogawa and Reg Mombassa.

Wayside is available RRP $80.00 here  as well as selected book stores nationally.

All profits from the sales of the books go back into programs and services to support the most vulnerable members of the community.

corner house bondi – Banquet with the Wine Maker: Claus Preisinger

Join The Corner House Bondi ( A local Bondi favourite of mine) and Austrian biodynamic enologist, Claus Preisinger for a 4 course banquet style dinner showcasing top wines from Burgenland, Austria.
With the support from one of Australia’s leading and avant-garde importers, Lo-Fi Wine’s Mr. James Audas & Mr. Tom Sheer, we welcome Claus to delve deeper into what is some truly compelling fermented grape juice!
“ Theory is not my way. Doing is what counts.” – Claus Preisinger
If you want to produce delicious Austrian red wine, you gotta have Gols. Vineyards located in and around the town of Gols are making a name for producing world class wines from Zweigelt, Blaufrankish, St. Laurent and, in the case of Preisinger, Pinot Noir. Taught to farm by his father, Lorenz, Claus adheres to more traditional techniques, incorporating hand tractors and hand harvesting in his work. Claus is a biodynamic farmer and describes himself as a “low-tech, instinctive, natural” kind of winemaker who “takes whatever the grapes bring and puts it right into the bottle.” His wines show a crystal clear sense of place, intensity of fruit, and authenticity that only evolves from great farming.

Its sure to be a great evening!
