Arvin Grex

Since I am the owner of a very cute and spoilt dog Sophia the Boston Terrier and like to keep things looking good at home, it isn’t away easy to find cool things for your 4 legged friend that are as stylish as your home – however Arvin Grex make a super cool and very nice looking designer dog bed, your choice of metal frame and cover, recently they paid a visit to our Bondi home here some snaps from the day – Sophia loves the camera!

Hotel Ravesis Bondi

You have gotta love a pastel makeover where the new cocktails match the decor right! I have been crushing on the new (ok not sooo new) Hotel Ravesis makeover, its opposite Bondi Beach so there are awesome ocean views, the colourful interior upstairs by Corina Hicks is fun without being too in your face, the food and cocktails are superb! and of course him loving the splashes of Peach – the perfect Instagram backdrop!

Last Thursday Bondi Local legends Aquabumps took over Icebergs Pool, printing and covering the pool with a giant Image 49m x 13m – 24 panels and over 5 hours to install whilst the pool was empty ( the pool is emptied every Thursday) teaming up with Canon Australia this was an incredible installation at one of Sydneys most iconic pools! well done it was an awesome sight to see!

It pays to think/dream big as anything is possible and dreams can be achieved!

weekend (Bondi) photo shoot

This weekend I rendezvoused bright an earlier (5.30am!) for sunrise with Sarah Glover and Photographer Luisa Brimble for a special little beachside shoot in Bondi. It was all dreamy shades of pastels, hopefully its going to make it into Sarah’s forth coming cookbook, so I can’t share too much! I loaded up my Fiat 500x with a heaps of props including a few things from MJG 

Sarah cooked up a storm out the back of a super cute Kombi Van, right in front of the beach, her food is seriously good! and then everyone went for a swim!

Keep your eyes peeled for Sarah’s cook book and follow her on Instagram here

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!
