Sailing, Sunsets and Sea Shanty’s

Imagine… after a leisurely sail around the beautiful waters of the Whitsunday Islands, you pull up a mooring for the night, and head to shore for a romantic cocktail whilst enjoying the amazing sunset only Tropical North Queensland can deliver.     Well, recently Hubby and I had the pleasure of such an experience.

An impromptu wedding reception at Indiana

So a couple of years ago, my wife and I got married. Unfortunately, we couldn’t book the venue for our wedding reception on the same day as our ceremony – and that is how we ended up having an impromptu wedding reception at the Indiana on Cottesloe Beach. We had our wedding reception at the…

Café Vibe, what is it?

Napoli, Italy. The birthplace of great coffee. Here during the 1st World War a tradition began from working class café where someone would order a caffe’ sospeso and pay the price for 2 coffees but receiving and consuming only one.

Awesome Oysters in Tasmania

We had been told how cold it will be, take a warm jacket! It turned out to be the most amazing weather we could have hoped for. I went with work colleagues to experience the beautiful Tasmania. We went on hikes, a tree top challenge (very much a challenge for someone who is terrified of…

A few of my favourite things

One of my favourite things to do is styling photoshoots. Combine that with my love of food and coffee in the form of a café shoot and I’m in heaven! Not too long ago, photographer Dylan Moore and I visited Common Ground at Curtin University to create a library of campaign and social media images…
