Sceen'ry Magazine Volume Three Sydney

06 Sep A Look at my Work in Stunning Sceen’ry Magazine

Today I'd like to introduce you to a travel publication that I'm sure you've noticed in my social posts recently. I'm talking about Sceen'ry Magazine, the print travel guide covering one city at a time from an insider's pespective. Not just your regular magazine, the print quality of Sceen'ry is undeniable. It serves as more of a keepsake guide, and might I add, a chic coffee table addition. Those of you with a giant magazine stash like me will really appreciate the tactile nature of these travel guides. I was lucky enough to contribute to the most recent volume, featuring Sydney, and couldn't wait to see my favourite places come to life in print! Come and check out where I went exploring and how each shoot came together...

17 Aug A Week in Jakarta With Ascott Indonesia (VIDEO)

You may remember earlier in the year I shared a video tour of Somerset Hobart. The project was part of my goal to deliver more video content to Escape Button readers, not to mention utilise my husband's camera gear that I insist on lugging around the world! Well just a fortnight ago we were lucky enough to stay in another two Ascott Residences, this time in Jakarta. I had never been to Indonesia before so I was excited to experience the hustle and bustle I'd heard about. Yes, you read that right...an Aussie who's never been to Bali! What I discovered in Jakarta was that the hotels, in this case serviced apartments, take on a different role to traditional accommodation. Not simply places to rest wandering feet, these spaces are offices abroad and communities for likeminded professionals. Come and take a look at what we uncovered with our video tours...

Luxury Winter Getaways Edit

22 Jun The Best Luxury Winter Getaways from Sydney

When winter sets in, the city can often be the last place you want to be. Thankfully, out in country New South Wales a host of warm treats await. From mulled wine to open log fires, these destinations both embrace and harbour you from the cold weather. Outside the peak travel season, winter getaways are usually limited to just a long weekend. This means you need a destination that is guaranteed to deliver without too much time in transit. Enter, the road trip. After exploring country towns up and down the state, I've found a few favourites that I keep returning to. They're the kind of towns that make for immersive winter getaways, with sights, sounds and smells to melt away the cold. And as you'll see below, they don't skimp on modern comforts. Here are the places offering up the most luxurious winter stays outside of Sydney...

14 Jun Label Love: Summer Slides by LOÉIL

Some brands are synonymous with travel, be it through purpose-made accessories or textiles that reflect a cultural heritage. They create pieces that are right at home in the stylish traveler's suitcase. One such brand I recently discovered is LOÉIL. Born in Los Angeles and featuring Korean textiles, this brand has a strong focus on tailoring womenswear from ethically sourced materials. But it's their slides in particular that have caught my eye. Combining woven raffia and sleek leather to create classic pieces with a point of difference. Their collection of slides is broad, ranging from flat and frivolous to heeled and minimalist. Here you will find a pair for every type of summer escape. When packing for your next trip consider these LOÉIL options for the city to the sand...

05 Jun How to Plan the Perfect Trip to Cradle Mountain

Cradle Mountain carves out a dramatic entrance to the northern end of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Its jagged ridges, dropping away into glacial lakes, form a unique backdrop for photographing and hiking Tasmania. Part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Cradle Mountain's remote position requires a little more planning to make for a safe and comfortable trip. After visiting the site from Launceston and spending a couple of days there I've come away with plenty of tips to make your stay an easy one...
