I was born in Adelaide, Australia, and that started my life adventure. Covering seven countries in fourteen years, including three children in three different country, phew! I’ve lived in Sydney, London, New York, Dubai, Singapore, Shanghai and Hong Kong, mostly following my gorgeous husband’s career (in expat circles my title is ‘trailing spouse’ but let me assure you I don’t “trail”).
Moving house is one thing, but moving countries with little people is quite another. I have created new homes for our family over eight times, these have been in brand new houses and apartments, very old apartments, some fully furnished (that had to go) some with brand new amazing kitchens and some where we needed to buy everything ourselves. It has been a destination, design, decision, dilemma that has brought me to now, in an old apartment in Hong Kong. Which is filled with pieces from my past, that will always remind me in the present, what an extraordinary life I live.
During my career, I have worked for multi national companies across the globe, including Unilever, Time Warner and Ernst & Young. I have also been fortunate to work with some really inspiring entrepreneurial people, helping them launch their dreams, and furthering them to reach greater potential. These have included an emerging designers department store in New York, a wine company in Singapore and a fashion label in Shanghai.
This has all led me to now, where I am sharing with you my style, passion and pursuits. I will let you know all about my favorite things, including; food, fashion and design. Plus anything else I think you should know about!
I love hearing from you, so please send me a message in the comments section and I will respond to you as soon as I can, promise!
