I love all things fashion, food and travel. A holiday filled with drool-worthy food and Carrie Bradshaw-inspired fashion and I’m weak at the knees. Born in Brisbane and raised on the NSW far north coast, my passions and personal flair are influenced by a term I like to call “coastal-chic”. I’m a sucker for a rom-com (I don’t even want to think about how many times I’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada), but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
