The beach lifestyle is very much a part of the Australian culture – unfortunately with that love of the water and the outdoors comes with it some shocking statistics when it comes to skin cancer.

Our trip to the Whitsundays gave me an early taste of the long summer ahead. The weather was still mild but the days were balmy and warm. We’ve already had some 29 degree days in Brisbane too so I know that the consistently warm weather is just around the corner. Many people have also been

Editor’s note: It’s been a while since I’ve been on the dating scene. Today I’ve got Christine from The Global Goddess sharing her witty wisdom about what to wear when playing the dating game.

I took this photo of iconic Whitehaven Beach about 18 months ago. I was on a blogger trip and it was my first time in Queensland’s Whitsundays. Not only could I not believe it was my first time visiting this part of my home state but I knew then and there that I would be

I’ve had reason to pull together some quick evening outfits of late. I know: First World Problem. I love colour like the next person but when it comes to a no-fuss, no-fail, no-brainer evening outfit, I’ll reach for black on any occasion. I don’t find black boring it at all. I find it an instant solution

Spring has sprung in my part of the world. It did take its time to reach the forecast 27 degrees yesterday and today is forecast at only 22 but there is a distinct seasonal change in the air. Whenever that happens, I get a sudden urge to re-organise and re-edit my wardrobe. I know this

The Model and Me: Elm


Hello first day of spring. You make me so incredibly happy with your mild sunny days and cool, doona-worthy nights.
