It was my husband’s birthday recently. On the one hand, he is trying to forget birthdays and on the other hand, I’m stressing out trying to find him that something special. But I’m married to the man who has everything. It’s not like he’s too hard to please, but other than a new Rolls Royce Wraith or a Breitling watch, gifts just don’t cut it for him, he honestly has everything. So these days, rather than trying to buy him a gift he will probably just return, I opt for a far better option, particularly considering how busy life seems to be. I DO something. Whether that be arrange an experience that we can do together, or like this year, a getaway, just the two of us.Continue reading “Things not Bling’s with Voco Gold Coast”
We’ve all seen pretty pictures of Tasmania, striking red boulders contrasting the white sandy beaches, crystal waters, not to mention the award-winning food and wine. As a photographer, it’s been on my bucket list for a while, so I decided to get together a bunch of girlfriends and jump in a car to find the best places to explore on a road trip.

In today’s modern world, we are all getting busier. We are time poor and with the invasion of social media in recent years, family time is rare, but more importantly -priceless.
It’s the new trend. We are all travelling more and with this, comes sharing our adventures on Social Media. Often, a great “Instagramable” location can determine our destination choice. In fact, many people travel to a location purely with the aim of getting that perfect “Instagram shot”.
With the explosion of social media and the continuing improvement of smart phones, everyone is becoming better and fussier at taking good pictures. You don’t have to be a professional photographer to get a hero shot anymore.
Most of us have travelled to Sydney, but if you’re anything like me, every trip has been for a purpose – work, or an event. The cosmopolitan capital is not somewhere that I would usually go for a “holiday”, yet there are so many things on my bucket list that I just never seem to find the time to tick off.
One of the most distinctive and beautiful things about Australia is its contrasting landscapes. From the pristine beaches, to the lush rainforest and barren outback. With more and more people traveling and many tourist destinations becoming overcrowded, the trend is changing to travelers looking for more unique experiences. Particularly with social media, everyone wants that rare selfie, something that’s going to go viral, not the same old shots that have been done to death.
Such an honour to be not only featured in the Gold Coast Bulletin with my work as a local photographer, but to have the front cover of the Gold Coast Eye Magazine.
The Sunshine Coast is one of Queensland’s most popular tourist destinations. After all, it boasts beautiful beaches and great seaside towns that provide a perfect getaway, particularly for visitors from South East Queensland like the Gold Coast. Yet for the many of those that vacation to the Sunshine Coast, they miss some of the best that it has to offer – its gardens and natural landscapes.
