Best thing about blogging:
Being able to be creative, explore my interests and meet new people. Plus, I love creating visual diaries that curate all of my favourite things, inspirations and daily adventures.
You’ll either find me in my stripes, skinny jeans and boots combo, or in my Bonds gym gear!
Can’t live without:
My diary, iPhone and coffee.
The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make the Most of Them Now by Meg Jay and My Paris Dream by Kate Betts
What I’m listening to:
Kygo, Pia Mia and Taylor Swift.
Insider styling tip:
Basics are your best friend. You can never go wrong with a classic stripe, chambray denim or oversized tees – it’s all about keeping your look interesting with on-trend pieces and plenty of layering.
Evian facial spray, a pair of thick Bonds socks, a grey Bonds Sloppy Joe, make-up wipes, a full iPod and a good book or magazine.
Favourite brunch spot:
Bread and Circus in Alexandria or Porch and Parlour in North Bondi.
Secret to your success:
Always being open to inspiration, whether it be in books or magazines, online, in nature or whilst travelling. Regular exercise and making time to escape outdoors and relax also helps keeps me sane despite my busy schedule.
Favourite Bonds piece:
Do I have to pick one? On high rotation are my Besties stripe tees, my grey Sloppy Joes and exercise tights.
