Recently Condé Nast Traveler declared Australia THE place to travel to in 2016 devoting many of its pages to our sunny shores, we may have known this already but as in all things its always great to be validated! I will share every now and then a few of My Australia (home) favourites right here, these mostly favourite swimming spots below are all walking distance to home, yes we ARE the Lucky Country!

Garden Life (every stylists favourite outdoor/garden store) have opened a second store in St Peters and is now open. The 1100 square meter warehouse space is an inspiring outdoor destination where Richard Unsworth has curated a selection of pots, planters, plant specimens and accessories, from exotic locations such as Africa, Morocco, Italy, India and Burma.

Garden Life Redfern [2008] is still the creative gardening hub for outdoor living solutions that are intuitive and individual.
