This weeks weather had me thinking about the clients and family friends of mine currently experiencing one of the inconvenient things that come along with ageing as a woman. Menopause. Particularly, hot flushes in over 30 degree heat.
Your living arrangements, hobbies, friends circle and general lifestyle can change when you go through a break up. One thing that often doesn’t change, but needs to – is your wardrobe.
I’m sitting in a café at the moment in jeans, a tucked in long-sleeve thermal and a thick woolly knit that has pom poms on it. I sound like a piñata, but if you saw me you would think there’s just the right amount of pom poms on this jumper to not want to whack me with a stick.
Can you believe it’s nearly 2018? It dawned on me today when I was working on a photo shoot in a beautiful California bungalow style home, shooting luxurious towels in the warm sun what a different year this has been for me.
I have this problem in winter where I get dry skin between my eyebrows. Being in and out of heated shopping centres all day with clients and then in the cold outside can really give my skin a less than flawless glow.
Sometimes having a wardrobe full of clothing and nothing to wear isn’t because you hold on to too much clothing, it’s because of the way you shop.
Despite the common idea that once the baby is out, you can basically go back to wearing normal clothes – this is so not the case.
Time to forget those tunics and trapeze shaped dresses! I’ve got some fabulous winter maternity style tips that don’t involved childish prints or poorly cut fabric!
At the start of this year I became single again and one of the first thoughts I had was that this would be the first Valentines Day I’d spend as a singleton in Sydney.

I hate the gym, I’m not a fan at all.
When you run your own business, networking comes with it, as much as we may love or hate it. I have a love/hate relationship with it myself, do I go alone? Don’t I? How do I break the ice? When is the right time to hand over a business card without seeming too pushy? But one thing I’m not stuck on is knowing what to wear to a networking event.
Fat days suck. They often come as a package deal with our time-of-month, full-moon looneys and forgetting our coffee cards right when we were due for a free coffee stamp. I hear you, sister. But lets not confuse ourselves between a fat day and a day where you might have to go up a size in clothing.
Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of great magazines out there with some brilliant fashion and lifestyle articles, but something that’s really hit home to me lately after a recent chat with my book agent, was how many of them actually consider you as a person and not as a consumer?
Boobs, they’re the best and worst things for us women, regardless of the size.
Focus On Dressing For Your Shape Instead Of Obsession Over A Weight.
