TOP LOCAL DINING SPOTS I LOVE TO SUPPORT
Pendolino is a beautiful Italian restaurant and one of my favourites for lunch – I love their 'wild weed' spaghetti! They're currently doing wine deliveries around Sydney CBD and they have an amazing sommelier so their wine selection is an absolute dream. For a morning green juice or coffee fix, Romolo is my go-to and they’re doing takeaway orders right now.

 

KEEPING A HEALTHY BODY, MIND AND SOUL
For some of my favourite artists are Giorgia Bel, Luke Chiswell, Bruno V Roels, Milou Neelan of Hotel Magique and Heath Wae.

For wellness at home: Manuka Honey, Tulsi (Holy Basil) Tea and The Beauty Chef Collagen Boost are 3 things I love daily and have found work best for me. My local sauna + wellness spot Nimbus Co have just launched a guided meditation series which I'll be utilising whilst I stay home during this self-isolation period! I'm also a big fan of a good multi-tasking face mask whilst I sip my morning tea and do my work, especially anything clay-based or charcoal! The Aēsop Parsley Seed Masque always leaves my skin feeling fresh and fab when it needs a little love.

 

For what I am listening to: My current work-from-home playlist consists of a mix of: City and Colour, Banks, James Blake, Black Sabbath, Lou Doillon or if all else fails, The Now and Then Movie Soundtrack (one of my childhood favourites!).

 

And when it’s time to go for a walk: There's a beautiful ocean lookout tucked-away across the road from our home that is nice to take a moment at and watch the sunset – otherwise even just using the outdoor shower for an afternoon refresh feels like a treat these days.
