The Local Guide Series III

Two's a charm with the latest in our Support Your Local Series, looking to Fashion Editor, Caroline Tran, and tastemaker, Lisa Danielle. An ode to Australia's East Coast, each share their list of where to go, what to eat and how to indulge in some well deserved self care and R&R. From Sydney's Tamarama, to the North Coast's Byron Bay, breathe, reset and repeat with these not so little pearls of wisdom.

Tamarama, New South Wales

Currently listening to The Weeknd's new album, Orville Peck and I love the FashionGoneRouge (by influencer Debora Rosa) playlist on Spotify for a WFH mood.

My favourite walk near me, typical but Bondi-Bronte. I usually head down there quite early, and there's not many people around and I can see the sun rise! I like to be by the ocean, so it's nice to get the fresh air and always the view.

To keep Zen and productive - I have been sticking to my normal routine, wake up, exercise, get ready, and put on an outfit for my workday. Routine keeps me in check and motivated. I have had so much time to sort out the house, and keep it organized, it's become my little oasis with the perfect ambience to keep productive in.

As for down time, I cannot get enough - I finally can checkoff so many things on my list, cleaning out my wardrobe, baking, working on creative projects.

Also definitely keeping in touch with my friends via Instagram, WhatsApp or Houseparty is keeping me happy. I might not be able to see them physically, but a video call (sometimes with a wine), really lifts my day.
