christmas cheers

Tis the season! heres a little bar set up (with some of my favourites) that I created for Country Road

“A signature drink is my secret to a great soiree. For the festive season I have made a twist on a classic and created a Pomegranate Negroni.”

Pomegranate Negroni

I had this drink once at a party and have perfected it at hone it’s easy as this…

Equal parts, Campari, Brookies dry Gin, Regal Rogue Rosso and a splash of pomegranate juice to your liking on a large ice cube  serve in a low glass with a wedge of orange and a pineapple leaf to garnish – cheers!

Christmas table Country Road style

Im so trilled ton share these images I created for this Christmas… simple, natural, creative and distinctly my style.

“When decorating my home for Christmas I always like to stay true to my own style. Living in Byron Bay, I am a nature lover and inspired by both the Australian bush and ocean. My style for decorating and entertaining is relaxed and laid-back but always creative. The colour palette includes neutrals, deep greens and metallic gold accents. Banksia are my favourite native flower and perfect for an Australian Christmas. They look great on the table, in a vase or decorating a wreath. I love to mix old with new, I’m a collector but more and more it’s about the edit, often not adding but subtracting.”

“I like the table to be relaxed and not over styled. I start with a table cloth and smart napery then layer different pieces for interest. In this case I’ve opted for gold cutlery for a festive feel and used native foliage as a centrepiece. I love to make each place setting unique by mixing decorations with natural elements such as leaves and flowers.”

merry christmas

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Hoping you have a wonderful day with friends and family…

Christmas for me is all about summer here in Australia, taking a break and never being far from the beach, spending time with family and friends and simple traditions.

Its a great time of the year but not for everyone, its a time when a little good will goes a long way for. Lets think about those less fortunate than ourselves, moments like this where i can say Im proud to be an ambassador for Wayside Chapel together we can all make a difference! give the a little gift to give someone a better start.

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!
