Before I walk out the door
I must give myself a spritz of perfume. Right now I mix up my scent with either Michael Kors, Very Hollywood or Narsico Rodriguez, for her. Two of my favourite scents that I never get sick of!
Cats or Dogs?
Dogs! That’s easy. We have always had a family pet (sometimes three or four at a time) and I couldn’t imagine life without a dog running around the house.
I am the happiest…
When I’ve had my coffee in the mornings. The team at Pardon in Prahran make the best coffees in the area and quite literally bring me to life each morning.
A Saturday/Sunday well spent is…
I love to start the day off by exercising, whether it is a training circuit with friends at Como Park, a walk around the tan or a class at Fitness First in Richmond, I love to do something active! Next it’s off for breakfast and a much-needed caffeine hit. My fav places include Batch Espresso, Proud Mary and Monk Bodhi Dharma…just to name a few. After that the day is my oyster. I love to get outdoors, go to the South Melbourne market or simply sit outside reading the paper.
Favourite hour of the day…
Between 6 and 8pm. This is what I call me time. Usually I will take myself for a walk after work and tune out to the world with my ipod. I love going for walks along the Yarra River during the warmer months, its so peaceful and makes me feel energized after sitting down all day.
Songs on repeat….
Right now I have a rather scary obsession with ‘Given the chance’ by The Kite String Tangle. I have had it on repeat for at least two weeks. Some of my other favourite artists at the moment are Aluna George, Foals, Lorde and Andy Bull.
Things that make my skin happy…
I have really sensitive skin and have always struggled to find products that agree with my skin. Having said that, I recently started using Skinceuticals Gentle Cleanser and it’s great! I wash my face each night and always feel so clean and fresh!
You have a love for bircher so tell us your top three bircher haunts in Melbourne…
- Proud Mary, Collingwood – they put the most delicious best burnt orange yoghurt on top which I am absolutely obsessed with.
- Garage Espresso, St Kilda – the perfect consistency and just the right combination of yoghurt and fruit.
- Coffee Darling, South Yarra – A huge serving but very tasty nonetheless.
