Read on, and revolutionise the way you approach your wardrobe… Continue reading “Colour Blocking – the Clash”
I’ve long been an adherent to tonal blocking (the art of dressing in different shades of the same colour), but the problem was that the “tone” I used to block was black (I know, I know, black isn’t really a tone). However, in recent years I’ve embraced colour, and with it, the joy of tonal blocking in a vision of pinks and mauves, burgundies and dusty rose, emeralds and khakis.

We’re not even halfway through the ski season, and if the Winter Olympics have inspired you at all, it’s time to book a ski trip! Having just returned from an all-levels-of-epic ski trip, I can highly recommend Morzine in the French Alps as your next ski-extravaganza destination.

Visitors to Australia typically arrive into Sydney, go to Bondi, climb the harbour bridge and take some selfies in front of the Opera House. Then they typically travel north to see all the wonders that Queensland has to offer. Some will go inland to Uluru and Alice Springs, but not many head south to discover Melbourne. And even fewer head into country Victoria from Melbourne. Which is why The Royal Mail Hotel at Dunkeld is a rare and precious little gem, sitting relatively undiscovered by the tourist hoards at the foot of the Grampian mountain range, just three hours drive from Melbourne.
