Fashion, travelling, food and wine and most importantly my family and friends

Best advice you’ve ever been given?
Turn a problem into a challenge and see what you can do with it

You do a lot of globetrotting. Where’s somewhere that’s influenced your style?
New York City is my favourite place in the world. The meatpacking district in particular is my favourite. The people there have such an effortless cool vibe and style

What’s your favourite travel destination and why?
I can’t go past New York City. The Standard Hotel on Washington and 13th is my hotel of choice. For a relaxing holiday, I love Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. You can have a perfect combination of relaxation and play

What about website for best travel deals?
My favourite site for boutique hotels is tablethotels.com. You’ll always find some amazing spots there!

For the following holiday styles, can you recommend an option?
Beach bum: Byron Bay, NSW
Culture vulture: Longitude131 Luxury Australia Outback Experience
Adrenalin junkie: Mount Hotham – snowboarding gets the adrenalin pumping!
Luxe living: QualiaHamilton Island or Crown Towers, Melbourne (by far my favourite hotel)!

What have you learnt from your travels?
To speak to locals to learn where the best local spots are. Otherwise it’s too easy to get sucked into tourist traps!

What are your top 3 health rules to live by?
Use minimal oil in your cooking.
If your destination is not too far away, walk instead of drive. Cars make us very lazy.
Laughter is the best medicine. A good laugh with a good friend can make everything okay again!

  • YOUR HAIR ALWAYS LOOKS SO HEALTHY AND FRESH. WHO'S YOU HAIRDRESSER?
  • Nadia Trowsdale at CAJ – she is a wonder! My hair gets damaged a lot from all the straighteners, curlers and tongs used in it every day at work – Nadia has done an amazing job to keep it so healthy!
